Elder Patriot – New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio is a devout Marxist and atheist. As unbefitting as that may be for a person elected to govern a city of more than 8.5 million people it is his right of course.
What makes de Blasio such a disgusting human being is his insistence that everyone else should be as unbelieving as he is.
A case in point came last year when Chick-fil-A’s president Dan Cathy was asked to give his opinion on gay marriage. The question was posed by a social activist whose only interest was in “trapping” Cathy into saying something he could use to paint him as a Neanderthal and to advance the issue of gay marriage.
Cathy remained true to his Christian principles and answered directly that, “I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’”
This led to a major mainstream media assault on Cathy and Chick-fil-A. Never mind that Chick-fil-A had never denied service to anyone or that the company has a history of hiring gays. This was an opportunity to shove the LGBTQXYZ agenda in the face of every American.
A boycott and gay kiss-in was organized at every store across the country with the intention of shutting down Chick-fil-A’s business.
It all backfired when Christian “Neanderthals” showed up en masse on the appointed day and bought out every bit of inventory in virtually every store!
That didn’t deter de Blasio from urging New Yorkers to boycott Chick-fil-A.
Since then another New York Marxist-Atheist, er, Democrat, City Councilman Danny Fromm also mischaracterized the best fast-food chicken option anywhere declaring that, “Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT.”
The fact is the Obama administration couldn’t find a single complainant to bring charges against Chick-fil-A because the company adhered to every law governing discrimination against gays and everyone else.
While Chick-fil-A CEO Dan T. Cathy shared his company’s support of “the biblical definition of the family unit,” he also held fast to Jesus’ teachings to treat all people with kindness – to hate the sin but to love the sinner.
The people got it even if people like de Blasio didn’t. Chick-fil-A’s sales have soared in New York and now they have announced the opening of its largest store ever, a five-level, 12,000 square foot building with impressive floor to ceiling windows to create a stunning panoramic view of the new Freedom Tower.
Why in the world would any politician run down a good corporate neighbor when it employs hundreds of his constituents and pays taxes to the municipal treasury?
De Blasio is the face of the new Democratic Party. No wonder they’re politicization of every militant minority has them being rejected nearly everywhere including at the ballot box.
Chick-fil-A was founded by Dan’s father, Truett Cathy, in 1946 and since then has a history of devout social conservatism. All 1,608 of its stores are closed on Sundays, the day of rest for Christians.
