While most big-box chain stores and restaurants love to pander to leftist causes, two national restaurant chains recently dived into the public fray on the side of political incorrectness. Denny’s restaurant made a commercial extolling the right to keep and bear arms as part of America’s greatness, and the Chick-fil-A president made a statement that his company supports “the biblical definition of the family unit.” Predictably, the left has gone ballistic–especially in their paranoid reaction to Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s comment.
As the name suggests, the Chick-fil-A chain specializes in chicken, not beef products.
It’s also the sponsor of the annual college football game played in Atlanta, formerly known as the Peach Bowl and now simply the “Chick-fil-A Bowl.”
The company is owned by the Cathy family. The Cathys are devout Baptists. One of the company’s hallmarks is that it closes on Sundays, almost unheard of for a fast food chain.
Many customers like the restaurant’s food, and Chick-fil-A has done well. But now it faces protests, criticism and a harsh challenge. Why?

Chick-fil-A: Democrats’ Jihad Against Christians (“Make no mistake about it; this is much bigger than Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A.”)
The relentless war by the left on Christians and biblical values has reached a new and more frightening phase with announcements by Democrat mayors and city officials across the country that they are “banning” fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A from their cities because company president Dan Cathy said unapologetically that he is in “support of the traditional family.”
Make no mistake about it; this is much bigger than Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A.
Rev. Billy Graham, at 93 the senior statesman among Christian leaders in America today, says he’s rooting for his longtime friends, the Cathy family, in a nasty public blowup over their religious beliefs.
“I want to express my support for my good friends Truett Cathy and his son Dan Cathy, and for their strong stand for the Christian
faith,” he said in a statement released by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association……….
At what point did being right and normal become “controversial”? Oh, we know the cultural tectonic shift from traditional moral values to chaotic debauchery began in earnest in the 1960s, and we have seen our society gradually and steadily slide into moral decay since then.
