THIS Major City Is Trying To Block Chick-fil-A Because Of Religious Beliefs

The media today paints the LGBT community as being discriminated against.  But that's not really what's happening here, especially after the Supreme Court ruling on marriage.

Chick-fil-A is one of the most sought-after chains to have in an airport, second only to Chipotle, according to Neil Maxfield, vice president of concessions at Denver Airport.

But they're temporarily being blocked from Denver Airport, reports wnd.com, because a gay council member says their profits will be used “to fund and fuel discrimination.”

All this because Chick-fil-A's CEO, Dan Cathy, said in a 2012 interview that he believed in the Bible's definition of marriage.

Since that interview, 3 major cities -- Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco -- have tried (unsuccessfully) to block the chain.  After the 2012 interview, Boston mayor Thomas Menino wrote a letter to Cathy saying, “There is no place for discrimination on Boston’s Freedom Trail and no place for your company alongside it.”

Mayor Menino later said he couldn’t stop Chick-fil-A from coming to Boston and that he was merely expressing his own opinion.

Another bone of contention with Chick-fil-A?  Their stance to honor the Sabbath and stay closed on Sunday.  However, airport officials estimate Chick-fil-A restaurants “typically generate more in six days a week, than most fast-food concessions that are open all seven."

Liberty Counsel President Mathew Staver says that blocking the business because of the leader's personal values would be illegal due to discrimination. However he warns that the animosity towards Chick-fil-A is a sign to all Christians:

“It’s a wake-up call to all of us who have biblical values and share these moral principles that natural marriage is a union of one man, one woman,” Staver said. “We’re facing a very intolerant movement that wants to silence biblical views and views on natural marriage and morality."

Do you agree with Staver?  And do you support Chick-Fil-A?  Let us know!
