Cathy

While most websites noted the death of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by focusing on his rags-to-riches story of building the largest chicken chain in America, the liberals at TheWire.com decided to take a parting shot by labeling Cathy as “polarizing” in its obituary.

Chick-fil-A’s Polarizing Founder S. Truett Cathy Has Died

The wire pointed to an article in Forbes to back up their claim that Cathy was polarizing, but that article focuses on Cathy’s son Dan who is the president and CEO of the company.

In 2012, Cathy inadvertently occupied the center of a national firestorm when comments he made against same-sex marriage were widely reported just as ballot initiatives to legalize gay marriage were being introduced in four states.

Even if the same-sex brouhaha was about S. Truett Cathy, it still isn’t a reason to call him polarizing.  The company is private and can say and do what it wants.  If customers don’t like it they can take their business elsewhere, which some did. At the same time conservatives rallied behind the company and turned out in droves to show their support after the media and the LGBT bullies pounced on the company.

What irks liberals in the media is that Chick-fil-A continues to prosper despite holding to Christian principles which include closing on Sundays which is unheard of in the fast food industry.

Cathy is probably having a big hearty laugh in heaven.

 

 

 

Web gossip site FishbowlLA praised the announcement that the Jim Henson Company would be severing its ties with fast food chain Chick-Fil-A over its donations to groups that support traditional marriage.  Except that’s not exactly how Fishbowl writer Matthew Fleischer put it.

Some good news from the Jim Henson Company, which announced late last week that they are severing their business partnership with the notoriously anti-gay, fast food company Chick-Fil-A.

Chick-Fil-A had been offering Jim Henson “Creature Shop” toys in its “Kids Meals.” Nice to know the Muppets will no longer be pushing an anti-gay agenda…or cheap, terrible food that makes kids obese.

Notorious?  That’s a label pro-gay forces are using in an attempt to smear the chain which is run by noted Christian S. Truett Cathy.  What’s Cathy’s sin?  Donating money to groups that believe marriage is between one man and one woman.

Of course companies that support gay marriage or gay rights aren’t notorious in the eyes of the left, and this is just one more example of the intolerance of the left for any opinion that doesn’t square with their own.

Cathy is a well know Christian and his beliefs shouldn’t come as a surprise to his detractors. The chain is famous for closing their stores on Sunday, making it a true day of rest for its employees.

The fact that Henson severed its ties should be all that surprising since it is owned by the Walt Disney Co., which is a big supporter of gay rights.  It’s more of a surprise as to what took them so long to figure this out.

All this seems lost on Fleischer and his pals on the left, but then again no one ever accused them of being rocket scientists.
