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?
