LGBT Tyranny


A big drama scene is taking place between the LGBT movement and restaurant Chick-fil-a.  The issue began when President of Chick-fil-a, Dan Cathy voiced his support for natural marriage between a male and a female.  The LGBT quicky cried out "discrimination" and "bigot!"   To further escalate the matter, Mayor Tom Menino of Boston vowed to ban Chick-fil-a from Boston.  He claims that Boston will not support any business that "discriminates."  Chicago's politicians also joined in this boycott as well as the company that owns the "Muppets."

To counter this, former presidential candidates Mike Hucklebee and Rick Santorum voiced their support.  Many others are also holding Chick-fil-a appreciation days in support of the franchise.

This is unfortunate indeed.  The LGBT tyranny has got to stop.  Freedom of speech is under attack and must be defended.  It is not discriminatory to speak one's mind.   No governments have the power or right to regulate the political positions of businesses that function in its territory.  This is a scary thing that is happening.  If an elected official can weed out businesses based on politics, then freedom will be a thing of the past.



***UPDATE*** (July 30, 2012)

Mayor Menino has said that he will not block Chick fil-a from opening in Boston.   He has no power to do this and the backlash is obviously hurting him politically.
