  • Business Leaders Must Put a Stop to Corporate Cowardice

    Today certainly is not the easiest time to run a business. Globalization now requires executives to be experts on geopolitical issues. And thanks to rising cultural sensitivity in our own country, the slightest misstep can trigger a national boycott, which can now be organized at almost no cost through social media. It’s understandable that business leaders who simply want to build and sell their products would be fine burying their heads in the sand. In the short term, it’s easy to surrender to the mobs that come after you, or to placate despots in exchange for access to international customers.America’s...

    Chick-fil-A's disappointing decision to discontinue donations to "controversial" Christian charities is emblematic of the power of political correctness and the bullying left that drives it. If the previously stalwart Chick-fil-A folds, who is left standing to fight? Tireless, intolerant LGBTQ activists bombarded the restaurant chain with protests and accusations about it being "anti-gay." The gist of its sin is that it has donated millions of dollars to The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which have historically opposed same-sex marriage. Just this week, the restaurant chain announced it has stopped funding these two charities. "We made multi-year commitments...

    This week, Chick-fil-A, the immensely popular Christian-owned chicken sandwich giant, caved to the cultural left. For years, the left targeted Chick-fil-A, dating back to the 2012 revelation that Chairman and CEO Dan Cathy supports traditional marriage -- and, horror of horrors, that charities given donations by Chick-fil-A support traditional marriage. This prompted paroxysms of outrage in the media, who quickly demanded that Chick-fil-A tow the Democratic Party line, despite the fact that then-President Barack Obama did not officially endorse same-sex marriage until May 2012. The rage of the cultural left led to unsuccessful boycotts -- Chick-fil-A's business expanded from $1...

    A Florida Chick-fil-A franchise owner was arrested Wednesday on two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a 15-year-old, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said. Heather Matuszek, 32, was the alleged victim’s youth leader at Clearwater Community Church in Pinellas County in 2014 and 2015 when the incidents allegedly took place, The Tampa Bay Times reported. The alleged victim, who is now 19, told deputies Matuszek touched her inappropriately two times, the report said. She reported the allegations last March. The investigation is ongoing and the sheriff’s office says they believe there could be more victims. The alleged victim also...

    Officials of Chick-fil-A have announced Jeannette McNeil Cathy, the wife of the restaurant chain’s late founder, Truett Cathy, has died. She was 92. The restaurant chain we love serves delicious sandwiches. They are also a company run by Christian conservatives who stand up for traditional values. Jeannette attended New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and married Truett Cathy in 1948. The two met when she was 8 years old! Their love was meant to be. She supported Truett Cathy while he worked to support the Chick-fil-A brand in 1967. He credited her for strengthening his Christian faith, which is why every...

    It’s been so cold in Birmingham, Alabama that they’ve had stuff shivering they didn’t know could shake.It was especially bitter on the afternoon of January 7th and a good many folks had taken a respite from the cold by grabbing lunch at the Chick-fil-A on Highway 280 in Inverness.One of the diners who came in that day was a bit unkempt. He was wearing jeans and a hoodie – hardly the kind of clothing for a day like that. Most folks just figured he was a homeless fellow.The man first made eye contact with Mark Meadows, the owner of the...

    Feathers have been ruffled at California’s Ventura High School, where the principal this week banned the football booster club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches over fears that people might be offended. What, pray tell, could people find offensive about a plump juicy chicken breast tucked between two buttered buns? Were English teachers put off by the restaurant chain’s grammatically challenged bovine pitchmen?

    Are we moving toward an America in which only one worldview is socially -- and, God forbid, legally -- acceptable? Are the proponents of "tolerance" truly as intolerant and tyrannical as they seem to be? It's not just the political and cultural left's increasingly totalitarian mindset in demanding that only its views be permitted that bothers me; it's that more and more people aligned with the left politically, i.e., rank-and-file Democrats, are outright supporting this trend or willingly looking the other way. This is Barack Obama's America. He has established a climate wherein dissent from his and the left's "values"...

    So much of what is taught on today’s college campuses is useless “feel good” drivel. It is very often nothing more than pap designed to “build self-esteem.” Nevertheless, occasionally a genuine lesson will bubble up through the worthless sludge. This is what happened recently at the University of New Mexico (UNM). While the lesson was unintended, it was clear and for a change valuable. Students learned that they do not have to automatically yield to minority opinion and if they tell demanding Gay activists to get lost the world will not come to an end. Here’s how it unfolded. A...

    “Gay” media organizations and the mainstream press have headlined over the last two days Chick-fil-A’s “change” that they claim means the company suddenly is promising not to discriminate against homosexuals – and that it would stop giving money to those organizations that promote traditional marriage. But it appears the facts are that the company’s anti-discrimination policy remains just as it was months ago .. and its donations appear to have had no new directive applied. It was a statement from The Civil Rights Agenda that prompted the recent headlines. The statement said of the Cathy family’s foundation, the WinShape Foundation,...
  • The Starbucks Appreciation Day That Wasn't

    08/08/2012 6:49:28 PM PDT · by scottjewell · 14 replies
    ...A pro-SSM blogger in NYC had to admit by mid-day that the event wasn't going as planned, writing: "...Either we've become too complacent about this issue or the event just wasn't organized and promoted with enough vehemence. And now it seems like we may have lost this particular battle, especially since the haters cagily framed their actions as being pro-freedom-of-speech." Today it appears the Starbucks Appreciation Day was a complete bust. This marks the second failed attempted to counter-protest the Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day last week (the first attempt was the failed Chick-fil-A "kiss-in"): "The Chick-fil-A controversy has left the gay...

    Fellow Party Members, I have been watching the unfolding Chick-Fil-A controversy in the USSA with some concern. I have been trying to explain to my comrades here why it is that the owner of this reactionary enterprise was permitted an opinion in the first place. Even the most elementary policy documents indicate that in the progressive miracle that is multiculturalism every religion must be tolerated and promoted except for Christianity and every racial group should induldge in collective self-congratulations except for caucasians. Therefore that this non-person even had time to express heretical views when he should have instead been campaigning...

    In response to attacks by the powerful and offensive homosexual lobby, friends of Chick-fil-A are promoting National Eat at Chick-fil-A Day on July 25th and August 1st. I’ll be there on both days. In fact, all the employees at our various businesses will be eating at Chick-fil-A the next two Wednesdays. As is typical of the homosexual lobby, many angry messages were left on Chick-fil-A’s Facebook page, including: “Hate mongers! Never again! Not another $ from me.” “Goodbye Chikkk-fil-a! Your food was delicious, but I can no longer eat nuggets filled with hate!” Of course, it’s not about hate. It’s...
