Continuing to exhibit the signs of madness, LGBT protesters this week managed to shut down a newly-opened Chick-fil-A restaurant in Reading, England. Having just opened last week in the Oracle shopping center, the center’s representatives confirmed that they would not extend the restaurant’s lease past next April. Therefore, due to the pressure put on the restaurant by the badly misguided gays who have turned Chick-fil-A into a symbol of evil and oppression, the chain will have to find a new location practically before getting started in this one.
“We always look to introduce new concepts for our customers, however, we have decided on this occasion that the right thing to do is to only allow Chick-Fil-A to trade with us for the initial six-month pilot period, and not to extend the lease any further,” the shopping center’s management said in a statement.
In other words: If we weren’t afraid of getting sued for breach of contract, we would have kicked these guys out immediately.
The gays, naturally, are all very proud of this dubious accomplishment.
“We are staunchly opposed to Chick-fil-A setting up shop in the UK and certainly in Reading,” tweeted LGBT group Reading Pride, which has led the crusade against the chicken shop. “The chain’s ethos and moral stance goes completely against our values, and that of the UK as we are a progressive country that has legalized same-sex marriage for some time and continues to strive toward equality.”
Chick-fil-A, of course, does not have any kind of “ethos and moral stance” that has anything to do with gay people, much less one that goes against values of “equality.” This is meaningless propaganda that has been churning throughout the LGBT/leftist community for so long that no one even bothers to question it anymore.
Is it true that CEO Dan Cathy has some opinions about gay marriage that go against the (immediate, recent) mainstream? Sure. So what? It does not affect Chick-fil-A’s practices in any way. Guaranteed, you can head right down to your nearest Chick-fil-A today and pick yourself up a delicious sandwich, and it doesn’t matter if you’re gay, straight, black, white, or a devil worshiper. Well, as long as it isn’t Sunday.
Protesters also have a problem with the fact that the restaurant donates to Christian organizations like the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Well, tough. What do you think would happen to the global economy if Christians were to start taking a deep dive into the kinds of charities every liberal-run business donated to?
If LGBT activists in England really want to make a stand, why not start by protesting outside the mosques quickly popping up around your country? You can bet that attendees within these worship houses think a lot less of your precious gay marriage than anyone within the Chick-fil-A organization.
But then, maybe you’re too…chicken…to do that.
