KNIGHT: ‘Eat mor chikin’

Liberals serve up full plate of hate in attack on restaurant

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Up in Boston, where consistency is not necessarily a virtue, Mr. Menino didn’t mind giving a taxpayer-subsidized sweetheart land deal in 2002 to the Islamic Society of Boston, which has been linked to terrorist groups. But on the Freedom Trail, where the American Revolution began, Mr. Menino says Chick-fil-A “doesn’t send the right message to the country. We’re a leader when it comes to social justice and opportunities for all.” Except for Christians, who are about as welcome in Boston as the New York Yankees.

Stand for natural marriage, and you’ll get the left’s version of social justice: an iron fist in a lavender glove. The endgame is to criminalize Christianity and replace it with a state-approved false religion that retains enough trappings to fool the unwary.

Chicago’s notoriously foul-mouthed Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who donned brass knuckles to assist Mr. Moreno, put it this way: “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values.”

No, perhaps not in a town where Al Capone’s spirit animates its politics. Psalm 12:8 says, “The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.”

As for Mr. Cathy, “We intend to stay the course,” he said. “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

I know where I’m having breakfast, lunch and dinner on Aug. 1 — do you?
