You’ll never guess why this major city is going to war with Chick-fil-A


It’s no secret liberals despise Chick-fil-A.

They want to ensure the fast food company is punished for upholding Christian values.

And you’ll never guess how liberals in this major city are trying to take the nationally loved fast food chain down.

The 2019 Pittsburgh Kids Marathon recently garnered the sponsorship of Chick-fil-A.

But left-wing members of the Pittsburgh city council wouldn’t have it.

All nine of the city’s council members signed a letter insisting marathon organizers drop the sponsorship and ensuing funding.

Other liberals circulated an online petition demanding the same thing with 1,100 signatures.

They think allowing a conservative Christian company to sponsor a children’s event is “problematic” because the founder supports the biblical view of marriage.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports:

“They have several beliefs, which they’ve expressed officially, largely through religious basis, that are quite discriminatory and are quite inconsistent with the district’s policies regarding discrimination on the basis of gender, race, etc.,” said Ira Weiss, the school solicitor.

School board members Lynda Wrenn, Moira Kaleida and Terry Kennedy brought the matter to him and administrators after hearing from concerned constituents, Mr. Weiss said.

The board is set to vote next week on the resolution, which would withhold district support from the children’s event as long as Chick-fil-A is a sponsor. The move follows an online petition this month urging North Side-based P3R to sever the financial relationship.

More than 1,100 signatures appear on the petition. Posted on The Action Network website, it accuses Chick-fil-A of being “openly homophobic and transphobic.” The restaurant’s headquarters did not immediately comment but has said it doesn’t have a political or social agenda, focusing instead on service and hospitality “for all.”

The beloved fast food restaurant chain is a favorite target of leftists.

When Chick-fil-A opened up in New York City, the fake news media claimed it was a sign of the city becoming racist and anti-gay.

New York City city council member Christine Quinn even tried to remove the chain.

But the Chick-fil-A location broke sales record after sales record, selling 3,000 sandwiches a day equaling a sandwich ordered every six seconds.

Do you think Chick-fil-A should be allowed to sponsor the Pittsburgh Children’s Marathon?

  2. P/C carried to an extreme. I hope there is a counter petition in the works.
    I also hope the Council pays for their bigotry at the next election. They pretend the
    company is bigoted but it’s really the Council and the others who are unable to
    abide any belief that doesn’t agree with theirs. They are the real bigots.
    Unfortunately, there is no Chick-Fil-A near me or I would be a regular customer and
    supporter of the company.

  3. Libs live on hate and can’t stand anyone who does not agree with them. They are very sick people and need the healing love of Jesus. But they hate Him, too.

  4. The Liberals need to get a grip. Chick-fil-A is a great company. The Liberals hate it that Chick-fil-A closes on Sundays and has done so since the beginning. The Liberal can’t stand I that Chick-fil-A is a Christian Company.
    Liberals hate Christians plan and simple.

  5. Everything NEGATIVE protruding in their hateful skulls. Where is civility in them? Negative people are hateful people.

  6. liberal minded people are unable to be open minded; your mind is like a parachute, it does not work if it isnt open. they will never understand this; they only know hate and bullying which is the first sign of ignorance.

  7. i agree, elaine, and every other person who commented recently, liberals are, unfortunately, like cancerous masses to all the world.

  8. the pittsburgh mayor is a closet homosexual. he is for sanctuary citys and the council is all dems. they cater to all liberal causes. they are against any conservative agendas. pgh. is getting more like philly every bay.

  9. The First Amendment as crafted by the Founding Fathers says “…Freedom OF RELIGION” not Freedom FROM religion. They didn’t care what religion or how citizens chose to worship or not worship. They wanted citizens to have the FREEDOM to choose and not be forced to worship any one religion such as the Church of England.

  10. Sounds like the city fathers are discriminating and the few people signing the petition are the problem. It seems like hate is being generated by those trying to keep the restaurant out of sponsorship. Time for the PC liberals to be taught a lesson by those who don’t spread the hate. America needs to stand up and fight this hate.

  11. It’s a shame Christian based companies have to deal with this. As a Christian we are denied anything positive maybe if a Muslim company sponsored this event there would be nothing said. As a Christian based company keep up the good work the Bible states clearly we would go through this at the end of times. God Bless this company

  12. I simply love Chick Filet … they have God, Truth, Honesty, Time, and Common Sense on their side! The CRAZIES are never going to like or accept a great enterprise like CFL … they will simply continue to be a huge success anyway! I know a number of senior managers within this great company and they are very special men and women. The best thing we can do is to visit their locations often and enjoy their hospitality and great food!

  13. Yes, Chik-fil-A should sponsor the Pittsburgh Children’s Marathon and any other event! The food is delicious, the service is excellent and Chik-fil-A promote honesty and they believe in God. America needs more places
    similar to Chick-fil-A!

  14. Chick-fil-A should drop the sponsorship in Pittsburgh because they are completely ungrateful heathens at the City Council!! How can they vote against a Children’s Marathon? It boggles the mind!

  15. The hate for anything good and decent seems to come from the Left at an ever increasing pace! Chick-fil-A is such a wonderful, loving business and we think they are much more appreciated and supported in many other places!

  16. I totally agree even though we do not have the pleasure of enjoying their fares where I live…maybe one day! But you have written “and the few people signing the petition are the problem.” If numbers are the catalyst for getting the attention of the decision makers, then let the numbers talk. It might take some advertising in newspapers, reaching the networks of schools, organizations, churches, through word of mouth but we need to rise up and be counted every time these opportunities arise. We have to continue to give “freedom” mouth to mouth resuscitation to keep it alive or it will die away for lack of caring.

  17. This is a stupid attempt to silence people of faith. It is time for Christians to stand up and boycott any business or person who supports this trash.

  18. Elaine…
    my favorite adage! And, it’s certainly true. As far as Chick-Fil-A is concerned….great company, good, tasty food AND servers who are absolutely pleasant. Do I go there just because it happens to be a Christian company??? Heck no BUT those condemning the company might do well to practice some of their principles.

  19. That will work other cities have done it and been successful.

    If we do not start using some of their tactics on then we will be shut out

  20. This is really sad if we the people let these leftest fringed groups get away without us letting our voices be heard loudly and clearly that we support CFL and we completely denounce them and this silly rhetoric and behavior of PC anti christian values!

  21. I think the citizens of the community need to go pound the podium at City Hall and demand they CFL and the children alone. Take action also at the poles next opportunity!

  22. In light of recent events at a Pittsburg religious faciliy, where a Pittsburg citizen violently expressed displeasure at a certain religious group. Do you think the City Council should re-think their feelings to “Chick-Fil-A”. Anti Semite, or Anti Christian, “At this point in time, What difference does it make?”

  23. WOW! These Anti-Christ People and City of Pittsburg Should Not Declare War With Jesus Christ For He Is The Son Of God Almighty. God Will Have The Last Word.

  24. Chik-fil-a is a beacon if free enterprise. The restaurant is making money from Pittsburgh. It is well and good that the enterprise give something back to the city; however, it should be the enterprise’s choice and not a bunch of Left-wingnuts.

  25. All the more reason to make sure you vote in this mid-term election. We need people with conservative values elected to our government positions. This is especially critical in the house and senate as we need to insure that people with the correct moral values are appointed to the bench. The continuing effort to try and silence Christians is disgusting. I personally addressed our congregation this weekend to encourage everyone to vote. I also pointed out that we gather to listen to the Lord’s word. With that thought in mind, how could you ever support a pro-choice candidate for office? The world has certainly moved on, but not necessarily for the better.

  26. People that support a life-style that is in direct opposition to what The LORD GOD has ordained—aka, marriage of man & woman, have become totally AMORAL! The Apostle Paul covers this reprobate life-style in The Biblical Book of Romans, 1st chapter……please read. Chick-fil-A is an American enterprise that excels in good food and effective customer satisfaction!

  27. Robert Armistead they are drunk by toxin’s on their streets etc glad I don’t live there only city you see braces holding the buildings up

  28. See if this verse of Scripture concerning a REPROBATE MIND describes democrats and liberals. Romans 1: 28-32, Even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil habits, secret slanderers, backbiters, hateful to God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but also approve of those who practice them.

  29. LEFTIEs are a CULT made up of DYSFUNCTIONAL TEEN LIKE FOOLS, no matter the physical age they’ll NEVER LEAVE THE SCHOL YARD, thus we must fight them and not allow those IDIOTS to over run the hard working ADULTS.

  30. Perhaps if the civic fathers in Pittsburgh adapted Chick-fil-A’s philosophy, school children wouldn’t be indoctrinated by left wing liberals, and all its citizens could live in peace and harmony. I’m sure the residents in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood would appreciate it.

  31. Remember, the objective of the “Left” or “Progressives” is to destroy the family and destroying morals is a key factor, do they don’t want organization that promote real morals to be heard. Sodomy is a behavior a person chooses to engage in, and the “transgender” stuff is promoting mental illnesses. Companies and organization like Chick-Fil-A promotes morals and mental stability that help prevent children from being indoctrinated and harmed. If one wants to understand what the final result of the agenda of the “Progressive” movement is look at Venezuela and North Korea.

  32. Not one near me either. I commented on a commercial & asked them when they would open a Chick-Fil-A where I live. Unfortunately they couldn’t answer that, ugh. I would be a regular customer also as I don’t eat red meat.

  33. Nothing new here, at this point, we know tht we can no longer coexist with the liberal dem bloodsuckin parasitical ersatz life forms.
    Be patient, civil war is inevitable, then we will solve the problem once and for all.

  34. I have never bought anything from a chick fil a and I never will- racists, religious nuts don’t belong in America.
    It was founded to avoid religious oppression and the owner is a religious nut.

  35. You might want to learn the facts and not the propaganda of the “Progressives” who don’t like Chick-Fil-A due to the fact the owner(s) and company promote real morals and equality.

  36. We have a special needs Granddaughter an have Nurseing care for her. One of her Nurses passed a McDonald, Berger King & Wendys then he would pass the Chick-Fil-A and it would have more cars in the parking lot then the other thre Aloso e combined an this was at 10:00 at night. Also got there our selfs as we like it too.

  37. I love chick-fil-a. Shame on the left for portraying this restaurant in such a derogatory way. This just another “sign of the times”. God is watching us. Thank the Lord for chick-fil-a.

  38. Christ died to overcome sin and death. Those who believe that, as I do, should support any institution which by word and deed stands apologetically for that simple truth. It takes courage but courage was never more needed than in these evil times. Prostitution, perversion, infanticide and leftism must be fought until it is ignominiously defeated. If our Lord can die for me the least I can do is to stand for Him without apology or mealy-mouthed explanations.

  39. A while back, liberals mounted a national one-day boycott of Chic Fil A citing the founder’s Christian beliefs on homosexuality as reason. The boycott failed, and the chan enjoyed one of its busiest days.
    Samuel Truett Cathy maintains his core values, but does not beat people over the head with them. He does not go around berating the LBGT community. One will not find him calling for reprisals against homosexuals for their choice of lifestyle. I dare say if one could conduct a survey, it would be found the restaurant’s employees are a cross section of the country
