Support Chick-Fil-A: Great Chicken, Great Values

Don’t let liberals get away with saying they’re for “diversity.” They only want people to be different on the outside – like different hair, skin, and eye color.  But what about being different on the inside?  Well, that’s where they draw the line.

The latest example of this is when the president of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, answered a question in an interview with Baptist Press.  He said their company is “very much supportive of the family… the biblical definition of the family unit.”

During an interview on “The Ken Coleman Show,” he explained his position further:

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ “

Do you think liberals celebrated Cathy’s beliefs, which add a little diversity to the conversation about gay marriage?  After all, many companies are trying to make gay marriage mainstream.  (For example, Office Depot’s decision to partner with Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.)  So, did liberals embrace Chick-fil-A, as a mark of their tolerance and diversity?

Um, not so much.

Hollywood actors said they wouldn’t eat there anymore, Facebook lit up with protest, and the mayor of Boston said he wouldn’t let any more Chick-fil-A restaurants into his city.

Why?  Because the company’s president believes what most Americans believe: that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

So, help me understand this, liberals. Are you for true and difficult diversity – diversity of opinion, religion, and beliefs?  The kind of diversity that requires talking to each other about our differences of opinion and ideas? Or just the easy kind of diversity that makes for cool advertisements?

Either way, I appreciate Chick-fil-A and will make it a point to stop at the next one I see. I don’t think there are any in Alaska, but I urge all people who believe in traditional marriage to “eat more chikn.”

Fan Chick-fil-A on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, and eat at their restaurants.  There’s not a more delicious way to show support of traditional values! (Also, “The Anchoress” Elizabeth Scalia writes about this issue very convincingly.  Scroll down to watch the video at the bottom!!)

    I wonder how chick fil a feels about unwed mothers?

      They make the exception for Bristol Palin. What more can be said?

    I am just shocked at how the “Gay” Community is outraged by the opinions Chick-Fil-A stated for themselves. It wasn’t like the organization was trying to force their beliefs on others, they just simply spoke from their own hearts about their own personal beliefs. I really can’t believe all the hate. I should be upset with all the companies who create billboards of two men kissing on the mouth or two women openly on public signs half nude and interacting in sexual content. I have 5 children. Those are not the lessons of “DIVERSITY” I am trying to teach them. Diversity means treating people respect, not being ok with everything people say or do. We are not robots. We should be able to speak and thing from our own free will. From our own morals and values. As for all the cities who are banning Chick-Fil-A from coming into their town, aren’t you violating the constitutional right of freedom of speech? It wasn’t like Chick-Fil-A walked into a room full of people with a shot gun and killed a bunch of people. They just stated how they feel.

      No KeeKee they gave 5 million dollars to hate groups. Hate groups who tell people that gays are child molesters and spread disease. The owner says that god punishes America for letting gay people get married. And the crazies that believe that now want to HURT gay people because they blame them for droughts, and hurricanes and floods. That is the epitome of IRRESPONSIBILITY. And why arent all you conservatives angry that ChickFilA backtracked the very next day by issuing a statement that they would leave marriage equality up to the politicians and citizens to decide.

      • KeeKee

        Hi MotherBushIsBack. I am grateful that you and I are having a peaceful/healthy dialog about this subject. Thanks so much for that. To be fair, I can’t believe when someone call an organization a “hate group” unless I know for myself that the organization is really a hate group. I say this because their are people who are calling Chick-Fil-A a hate group because of their beliefs. Now, to be fair to what you are saying, I am about to research the organizations in which Chick-Fil-A has donated their money. Just to see if what you are saying is true. Knowledge is power. For some reason, I do not believe they will give money to people who are criminals or who abuse human rights by telling people to hate/kill Gay People. I feel bad that one statement has caused such a huge divide in our country. I also feel a lot of our country/city leaders are taking advantage of this subject just to get votes in this year up coming election. I do find it strange that this firestorm has come up in a time where we all are trying to figure out who we will elect into office. All of this just seem to calculated in my opinion. I think Chick-Fil-A may have said they will leave marriage equality up to the government because of all the hate, I’m sure death threats and more. They are also grieving the lost of their representative this week. But I will get back to you on this subject. It has been an interesting one to say the least.

    Does THIS answer your question? I am a proud liberal, and guess who my two closest friends are? A Pakistani Muslim and an ultra-conservative Pentecostal. I’m agnostic, a supporter of gay marriage, and a woman’s right to birth control and abortion, and a truckload of other things they don’t agree with. There are some things we DO agree on, such as welfare reform, the right to own guns, and the like. However, this doesn’t matter, because I love diversity. All you are doing with this blog post is boxing all liberals into one category, and therefore, being the pot calling the kettle black. Are there intolerant liberals? Most definitely. Are there intolerant conservatives? Yes, there are. I find it irritatingly amusing that you’re so mad at intolerance exhibited by some liberals when you, yourself, exhibit the same level of intolerance and worse, hypocrisy.

  • Larry Sullivan

    You have my support. I love your stand. To me if you don’t like what someone stands for, don’t go around them. It not that hard. I think some call it free speech. Are at least till they get that took away.

    It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the longer term and it’s time to be happy. I’ve learn this put up and if I could I desire to counsel you some interesting things or tips. Maybe you could write subsequent articles referring to this article. I wish to learn more issues about it!

  • MiddleRoader

    Brsitol might find the following quote straight off the Family Research Council (FRC), to which Chick-fil-A (via WinShape) reportedly donated (at least in 2010):
    “FRC strongly supports adoption, particularly as an alternative to abortion, single parenthood, or foster care. The purpose of adoption is not to provide children for adults who want them, but to provide for children families that give them the experience of intact married family life as much as possible. ”
    Hope FRC doesn’t try to legislate for that opinion !
    Lots of FRC anti-gay quotes/opinions that go way beyond not supporting gay marriage. For example:
    “Family Research Council believes that homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed. It is by definition unnatural, and as such is associated with negative physical and psychological health effects.”
    Also interesting is that I couldn’t find a website for Marriage & Family, Inc. , to which the largest donations apparently went. There were a lot of references to it, but I couldn’t find a mission statement, etc. If anyone else can find one, I would appreciate a url.
    Personally, I think it should be illegal for corporations to give to political causes, but in this “Corporations are people” culture we live in, it’s not going to happen. But that’s a whole other can of worms, and raises lots of other issues, like where do you cross the line from charity to political action?

    Whoa there…. people who take action for they believe is a very serious civil rights issue are guilty of NOT supporting diversity of thought? I’m really confused by that argument. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me to suggest that people out there screaming and hollering for their beliefs are supporters of uniformity in thought. Huh? By that logic, doesn’t this mean that all conservatives who attacked and boycotted the Susan J. Komen Foundation for supporting Planned Parenthood are guilty of the EXACT same offense? Isn’t the president of Chick-fil-a guilty of the same offense for speaking out for straight marriage in the first place? Aren’t you guilty of the same offense for thrashing President Obama’s viewpoints on this blog because they don’t agree with your own? Hold the phone…. why is speaking out for your beliefs an offense, again?

    Isn’t that the point of having an opinion, anyway… that you kind of wish everyone would agree with you (even though you know deep down you know it’s healthier for democracy that they don’t)?

    Bristol, I really do like your family and your show…. but what is with all of the constant stereotyping and bashing of “liberals”? Why do you call everyone who disagrees with you a “liberal”? If somebody supports gay marriage, it seems suddenly they fall into a whole class of people you automatically dislike and accuse of being uniformists. As a big fan of your show, that is offensive and almost makes me want to quit watching! I love watching you (and especially Willow!) but given some of my “liberal” positions, I guess you all wouldn’t like me very much…

    As a “liberal”, I would just like to clarify that I support the following: Kindness, love, strong family values, equal rights, education, tolerance, democracy, and Team USA!

    For the record, I will probably still eat at Chick-fi-a if the opportunity arises, because I accept their right to disagree with me… but mostly because they have really, really tasty waffle fries with sinfully delicious secret sauce.

  • Audrey

    Don’t listen to those winers, Bristol. Stand strong in your beliefs! It may not be popular, but most of the country stands with you! We may not have the loudest voice, but we are the majority! Way to go Bristol, and way to go Chick-fil-A!!!

    Bristol,
    I am here to report that our town in Georgia supported the Chic-fil-a to the point that they had to
    turn the people away starting at 6:00Pm. They had sold out of food.

  • KeeKee

    I finally found the WinShape Foundation supported by Chick-Fil-A. After looking over it’s website for myself, I did not see any “hate crime” committed. It is a family enrichment program. I didn’t see any harm or mean spirited information on the site about gays what-so-ever. We as people have to learn to be our own experts and stop taking everything the media feeds us as facts. We have to find out information about stuff by conducting our own research. If I would have listened to the media when they said Chick-Fil-A donated 5million to “hate” groups without conducting my own research, I would have been on the band-wagon like everyone else, banning & bashing this business without knowing the REAL TRUTH! It is not that serious. There is nothing wrong with standing up for what we believe in. I support Chick-Fil-A

    • MotherBushIsBack

      Hi KeeKee. Winshape gives money to Family Research Council. Google them to see the statements they have made about gay people.

      • Lesley

        Hi MotherBush,
        Obama gave money to Reverend Wright’s church for over 20 years. Google him to see statements made about white people.

    • Lesley

      THANK YOU! That is the entire problem with trying to have a discussion regarding this whole issue. No one does their research. They read a short headline, make assumptions, make up their own facts, and run with it. That’s why you can’t debate with them. They refuse to see or hear the actual truth and when confronted with the truth, they come back with insults and derogatory labels. It’s a pathetic downward spiral of lost civility and meaningful discussion and debate.
