A Christian Business in the Left’s Crosshairs

Pages: 1 2

Severson, you see, is an openly gay advocate of same-sex marriage equality herself and the former vice-president of the identity politics-mongering National Gay and Lesbian Journalists Association.

In a bitter op-ed on gay marriage laws not changing quickly enough, she asserted: “I don’t want the crumbs. I want the whole cake.” Severson has voiced complaints about her social and economic status as an unwed lesbian with a partner and child in several media publications.

None of this was disclosed in Severson’s advocacy journalism hit job on Chick-fil-A. But therein lies the unofficial motto of The Gray Lady: All the ideological conflicts of interest unfit to print.

Progressive groups are gloating over Chick-fil-A’s public relations troubles exacerbated by the nation’s politicized paper of record. This is not because they care about winning hearts and minds over gay rights or marriage policy, but because their core objective is to marginalize political opponents and chill Christian philanthropy and activism. The fearsome “muscle flexing” isn’t being done by innocent job-creators selling chicken sandwiches and waffle fries. It’s being done by the hysterical bullies trying to drive them off of college grounds and out of their neighborhoods in the name of “human rights.”

Remember: These were the same tactics the left-wing mob used in California to intimidate supporters of the Proposition 8 traditional marriage initiative. Individual donors were put on an “Anti-Gay Black List.” Businesses who contributed money to the Prop. 8 campaign were besieged by fist-wielding protesters. The artistic director of the California Musical Theatre was forced to resign over his $1,000 donation.

Message: Associate with the wrong political cause and you will pay. So much for national “civility.”

    In the old days one had a instinctive feeling that he or she should support gay people over the troglodytes attacking them. It now turns out that the trogolodytes are some (not all) of those pushing the gay agenda. Bullies are bulliles and the idea is to oppose them. I was once verbally attacked at a reading when I suggested that radical Muslims may be the cause of the problems in Iraq (admittedly a different matter). This bum tried to bully me. This tactic didn't and won't work against me. Resist thes bullies. We are entering a new age in America, when bullying, esp. from the left is the mantra of the day. Resist, resist and resist. Act as if America's future depended on your bravery. It does.
