It's been no great secret for a long time that the company is run based upon christian principles. As stated in many many articles, it's being closed on Sunday to give people time with family, among other things, is proof positive of that.
Here is what was said and in context....
The company invests in Christian growth and ministry through its WinShape Foundation (WinShape.com). The name comes from the idea of shaping people to be winners. It began as a college scholarship and expanded to a foster care program, an international ministry, and a conference and retreat center modeled after the Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove.
“That morphed into a marriage program in conjunction with national marriage ministries,” Cathy added.
Some have opposed the company’s support of the traditional family. “Well, guilty as charged,” said Cathy when asked about the company’s position. “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. …
“We are very much committed to that,” Cathy emphasized. “We intend to stay the course,” he said. “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”
So..giving an honest and completely open statement of how you try to live your life, run your company, give back to people, and what you believe is now hate speech? What the hell is wrong with you people? Have you been so brain washed by the media, the politicians and the education system that you've forgotten or never learned how to actually engage your brain and THINK about what you're being told? To actually CRITICALLY think? The answer I'm afraid in a lot of cases is probably Yes. Of course the answer I believe in many cases, especially with the younger generation coming up behind me is that the schools no longer TEACH the kids to think critically and think for themselves. Kids are no longer taught I swear,loudly and profanely I might add, how to work problems out for themselves. They are being taught answers by rote memorization, and that those are the only right answers.
I better stop that line of thought right there, otherwise this is going to devolve into a diatribe and profanity filled rant against the education system.
The schools, the media and the politicians over the last 10,20...hell for as long as I've been alive, have conditioned those of us that depend on them...to react a certain way, the way they want us to react, to stimuli they provide. So long as your a good cutout cookie, and do exactly what your told, think what your told to think and speak what your told to speak...your in the rubber stamped, government mandated mainstream. Speak, think or do things any other way than the "approved" way, and you're an aberration. The proof is in the pudding as they say. The quoted material above is what Chik Fil A owner Dan Cathy actually said, in context; it's not just part of it, taken completely out of context and warped to fit the propagandist line being spouted by the media.
Freedom of Speech and Tolerance have morphed...the definitions have been rewritten by progressives. Tolerance USED to mean that even if you didn't agree with someone, you respected their differing opinion and live and let live. Now? Now what it has come to mean is that if your opinion differs from what is deemed as the new normal by the government and it's paid mouthpiece, the press, you're a hate mongering, intolerant asshole, who must be castigated and cut off from society. Made an outcast. Oh my fucking god! Cathy and the company he runs supports TRADITIONAL families and family values therefore he must be an intolerant troll that hates gays and must be soundly castigated, separated and eliminated!. No..I don't THINK so junior...it means exactly what Cathy SAID it means. They believe and support traditional families...it doesn't mean they hate the LGBT community. You know? Now that I'm sitting here HATE has been redefined the same way as tolerance. Either you think the way the "group" thinks or you hate the group. You must be "punished" and "educated" so you can join the goddamn hive mind!
It's the "groups way, or the hard way.
I think the following video says it best and it really is apropos in that it's the way the government and the press run things...and how those who are brainwashed into thinking that everything those two entities do is always right.
Hmmm...now there's an idea. I think I'll get naked, cover myself in green jello...and walk down the street reading a playboy.......
Seriously? I agree with Dennis. It's come to the point now, that I'm so frustrated with stupidity of the masses..that I wanna sink ALL of them up to their necks in shit and let em think happy happy thoughts. Oh wait...never mind, they already ARE up to their necks in shit and still thinking happy happy thoughts because the gubbermint and the MSM (Mainly Sewage Media) don't let them think any differently. Look around people! Do some goddamn research....sheesh!
Oh and if you want to support Chic Fil A...but don't necessarily like their food. Buy a meal and pass it on to a homeless person, someone down on their luck.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.
