I’m in Shock — ACLU Supports Chick-Fil-A!
When mayors of major cities came out and said that they would deny a business license to Chick-Fil-A because of the beliefs of the president of the company, I wondered if the ACLU would get involved.
While the ACLU supports homosexual marriage, and I suspect will also support transgender and polygamous marriages when the cases come up for legal challenged, has denounced the comments of the mayors. Adam Schwartz, senior attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, told Fox News,
“When an alderman refuses to allow a business to open because its owner has expressed a viewpoint the government disagrees with, the government is practicing viewpoint discrimination.”
The ACLU and other liberal legal advocacy groups understand that if liberals can discriminate against conservatives in liberal cities, conservatives will be able to discriminate against the liberal viewpoints of business owners.
I firmly believe that if liberals could get away with it, they would be all for viewpoint discrimination. In fact, if liberals ever get the majorities in Congress and the courts, I believe that we will see viewpoint discrimination. Liberal hypocrisy is a given.
Consider Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago who condemned Chick-fil-A and told the media that he would see to it that Chick-fil-A did not get a business license, had no problem bringing Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam to his city to help with gang violence.
Farrakhan opposes homosexual marriage as does Islam in general. Farrakhan also opposed President Obama’s support of homosexual marriage. Keep in mind that it was Emanuel who said that the values of Chick-fil-A “aren’t Chicago’s values.” And Farrakhan’s are?
Farrakhan said a number of so-called homophobic remarks, even taking a few rhetoric shots at President Obama. “Now I’ve never heard from Michelle that our brother, you know, was absent from duty. But he’s the first president that sanctioned what the scriptures forbid.”
There it is. Farrakhan made it clear that the Scriptures — the Bible — forbid homosexual marriage. Millions of Americans believe the same thing and have voted not to enact homosexual marriage in 31 states.
The president of Chick-fil-A believes Scripture supports marriage between a man and a woman. So why is Chick-fil-A not welcomed in Chicago but the anti-homosexual-marriage Louis Farrakhan welcomed with open arms?
Farrakhan is a liberal tool. He will be used, like blacks are always used by liberals, to advance the prospects of the Democratic party.
