San Jose Resisting Chick-fil-A Opening with Rainbow Flag Protest

If I have my choice of eating delectable fried chicken and being called a bigot or going without said fried chicken and being assumed open-minded, then pass the chicken.

Not everyone agrees.

As several major airports have banned Chick-fil-A from opening franchise outlets on their property (including cities in Texas and New York) because they support Christian causes (some of whom support traditional marriage), the California city of San Jose plans to protest the grand opening of a Chick-fil-A at the Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport.

Not being able to stop capitalism, or freedom of religion, or freedom of assembly, or to regulate thought-crimes, the city council felt the next best thing would be to protest the fast food outlet by hoisting rainbow-colored ‘gay pride’ flags at the airport. They voted unanimously for the gesture of protest.

Ken Yeager, who is San Jose’s first openly-gay elected official, said that the flags would be a ‘counter-signal’ to Chick-fil-A’s supposed discrimination (by the way, Chick-fil-A will hire, serve, or sell their beautiful and tasty chicken to anyone).

Another San Jose councilman, Raul Peralez, suggested that they ensure the Chick-fil-A at the San Jose airport become the “gayest Chick-fil-A in the country.”

The real question should be why do liberals so despise the LGBTQXYZ ‘community’ that they don’t think they’re entitled to fried chicken. That’s the real scandal here.
