Chik-fil-A, Boston's Mayor and the Truth

One would think, from this article that the vast majority of Americans are "the mainstream" when it comes to acceptance of homosexuality and same sex marriage.  My contention, fleshed out below is that the vast majority of the "mainstream" of America, is NOT pro homosexual agenda.  A very small 2-4% group have changed the way this country thinks and I am sick and tired of it.

The owner of a PRIVATELY owned company has merely stated his own opinion.  He's not blocking anyone from eating in his stores, he's not making "special prices" for anyone (Bob and Betty pay $4.99 for the chicken special, Bob and Bob pay $8.99), he's just letting the world know what he personally believes and what his company that HE OWNS believes, which I'm pretty sure, correct me if I'm wrong, is allowed somewhere in America, it was once called "free speech".

No, not in 2012 America where a VERY SMALL minority of people have made the rest of America, the majority of Americans, think that they are wrong in their thinking.  

From the story above: Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is not a Chik-fil-A fan.. In an interview with the Boston Herald, Menino vowed to block the chain from opening up shop in his city, promising to make it extremely difficult for the company to procure the required licenses.
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston,” Menino told the publication. “You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion.”

So where exactly is Chik-fil-A "discriminating"?  Who's being discriminated against?  Mayor Menino is a hate filled bigot who does not own Boston nor does he have any say in what business can open in Boston.  Jobs?  "Don't need them in Boston, we have plenty".  New business that brings in millions in tax revenue?  "Naw, don't need it, we like the way things are."  Stupid person, bad mayor.  He is against free speech.

The issue is more than whether Chick-Fil-A should be commended or condemned for their statements.  It's also about our freedom of speech and of association in this country. I am always amazed at how those who call for "love" and open mindedness so quickly spew venomous hatred toward those with whom they disagree.  In contrast, a person following Biblical Christianity may express God's hatred of a lifestyle and it should always be done in a loving manner - always.  This shows a fundamental difference in the character of the two ideologies. Chick-Fil-A has not done or said ANYTHING that has hurt or discriminated against anyone.  Their support of a particular movement is their choice.  In-your-face type protests such as the "Kiss-in" do nothing constructive to forward the movement of it's supporters.  It only heightens the tension and raises conflict (which, I suppose, is the goal).

This article from The Atlantic (and in case you don't like them it's also on The Huffington Post) shows that the media suck ups and television production companies have convinced Americans that there are more "gays and lesbians" then there really are!

Guess what?  If you are a pro traditional marriage thinking American, YOU are the mainstream.  YOU are the majority.  You are NOT the minority.  You are the victim of a plot to change everything about how you think.  It's working.  Look at Chik-fil-A.

I agree. As a past public person who withdrew several years ago I can attest to the bigotry of the Homosexual Agenda. I have never me a group so biased and fearful.
i often asked and never received an answer to this question, If it is such a normal lifestyle why do you have to recruit among the youth and strike out against prevailing mores.
that is when the words extremest and homophobe would be used. why answer when you can deflect.

This is what democrats do, I personally don't care about anybody's sexual orientation, but when you have a gay or a minority democrat they want to be noticed, but a republican that is a minority or gay just wants to be left alone. No special treatment, no boycotts and none of this BS that gives them more attention than they want or need.
