Why Chic-fil-A Supporters are Hypocrites

Should the CEO of a national chain of crappy chicken joints be free to say whatever they want and blow their income on hate groups?  Sure, go ahead, be proud of your ignorance.

But by all means, religious intolerance needs to take a step back and look in the mirror.  Fact is, “majority moral opinion” has already set the precedent to limit free enterprise all across this country.  Don’t believe me?

Sunday liquor limitations are just the tip of the problem.  15 states ban the sale of liquor on Christmas and 8 of them include bans on Easter.

Now ask yourself why.

Obviously there is no issue with selling alcohol itself.  So why only on Sunday?  Why only on Christian holidays?  Because the MORAL OPINION of the majority took a vote or in some cases just passed a law to ban sales and limit how private businesses could be run in their city.

Now let’s take a closer look at the laws in a few select cities:

Salt Lake City, Utah: http://fox13now.com/2012/01/24/federal-lawsuit-filed-against-the-state-over-liquor-laws/

Clearwater, Florida: http://www.sptimes.com/2004/07/18/Tampabay/Scientology_s_town.shtml/

Food bans in Brooklyn because of Palestine/Israel issues: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/park-slope-food-co-op-schedules-vote-hold-a-referendum-banning-israeli-products-article-1.1026542#ixzz1n4pt6xHx

Pennsylvania Strip Club laws: http://www.ehow.com/info_8081403_pennsylvania-strip-clubs-near-schools.html

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I am a fan of actual FREE enterprise.  But when the opposition is playing so aggressively to BAN every single thing THEY find offensive, I find it hypocritical to start pointing fingers at everyone else when one of YOUR businesses comes against a wall of opposing moral opinion.

Either make the laws Federally applicable to ALL businesses or allow Chicago and Boston and San Francisco ban homophobic chains who make financial contributions to anti-homosexual attack groups  from their cities.  You cannot have it both ways religious fanatics.  You just can’t.
