You Can't Say That, But We Can

Chick-Fil-A has gotten a lot of negative publicity recently because the openly Christian CEO has stated that "the company was 'guilty as charged' for backing 'the biblical definition of a family." He later said, "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.' ""

Now Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel vows to block a permit for Chick-Fil-A stating, "Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values." Boston's mayor has followed suit.  READ MORE>>>

At what point can we hope that the left would stick to the same standards they expect us to hold to?

What if the tables were turned? There'd be rioting in the streets because people were infringing on 1st Amendment rights.

Imagine this: A chain restaurant/store's CEO publicly admits that his private and company's public policy is to support the right for same-sex marriage.  Let's say Howard Mark Schultz, Starbucks CEO, came out and publicly supported same-sex marriage and in response and numerous celebrities and political figures voiced their opposition.  The mayor for the City of Phoenix Arizona publicly states, "Starbucks' values don't reflect the values of the City of Phoenix" and vowed to not approve building and occupancy permits for new Starbucks stores.

How quickly do you think every newspaper, television station, and media outlet would be lambasting the Mayor of Phoenix for 1st Amendment violations and call for Department of Justice intervention?

Didn't the Dixie Chicks also say something that was controversial (if not offensive) but the media jumped all over it praising them for their courage and supporting their right to voice their opinion? READ MORE>>>
