Pittsburgh Wants to Revoke Chick-fil-A’s Sponsorship of Children’s Marathon. Here’s the Reason Why.

So disgraceful.

The city of Pittsburgh is not at all happy with Chick-fil-A, the world’s most popular restaurant chain, and is seeking to ban them from sponsoring a children’s event due to the fact the company’s leadership openly believes and supports traditional Christian values.

The Pittsburgh City Council signed a letter that’s requesting Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon to drop the restaurant as part of the Chick-fil-A Pittsburgh Kids Marathon. The event is a one mile run for children and their families. The letter has support from all nine council members.

“The leadership of Chick-Fil-A has openly and passionately promulgated hateful beliefs against the LGBTQIA+ community,” the letter reads. “Additionally, the company has financed organizations staunchly opposed to same-sex marriage and non-discrimination laws and other groups that equate ‘homosexual behavior and lifestyle’ with lawlessness and in opposition to the ‘the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society.'”

The letter goes on to warn that Chick-fil-A’s “sponsorship of an event designed to encourage healthy living represents a significant setback” for the city’s desire to be a “more progressive and welcoming city,” asserting that the company’s inclusion will send a “wrong message” to LGBT children

Furthermore, Pittsburgh’s school board will vote on a resolution that would “forbid formal district participation in the race if Chick-fil-A remains affiliated with it,” reports LifeSiteNews. This move aligns with the school board previously approving a “Transgender and Gender Expansive Students” policy allowing children to use whatever pronouns they wish.

School solicitor Ira Weiss claims that Chick-fil-A has “several beliefs […] that are quite discriminatory and are quite inconsistent with the district’s policies regarding discrimination on the basis of gender, race, etc..”

A petition has also been posted at Action Network that calls for the ban of Chick-fil-A stating they are an “openly homophobic and transphobic business,” and that the sponsorship is an attempt to “normalize homophobia and transphobia for our children.”

Wait. Isn’t their whole agenda the normalization of homosexuality and transgenderism, both matters which are not only incongruent with the Christian worldview, but that of nature and science too? Weird.

Anyway, the Pittsburgh Marathon is not going to cave to the demands of the mob. Here’s what they had to say on the matter:

“We have and will continue to be accepting of any individual or family who wants to participate in our events,” the organizers said in a statement. “This partnership with Chick-fil-A will help us ensure even more children in southwestern Pennsylvania can learn and share in our love of running.”

The left may not want to admit it, but they are not as “tolerant” as they claim to be. What they really seem to desire is, hypocritically, to force their worldview on homosexuality down the throats of the average American — who still largely hold to traditional views of sexuality — and force them to accept something they don’t believe is right.

Liberals are willing to employ all sorts of unsavory tactics to try pressuring these individuals into conforming to their view of reality, especially that of shaming, which is what they are trying to do Chick-fil-A.

The Pittsburgh Marathon deserves all sorts of props for having the intestinal fortitude to stand against the onslaught of fake outrage.

Florida Governor Makes Good on Promise to Pardon COVID ‘Criminals’

There is justice in The Sunshine State.

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made it very, very clear that The Sunshine State is not, and was not ever, in favor of curbing Americans’ freedoms on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Sure, there were some locales, (like Miami), who imposed curfews and other measures meant to crack down on some of the over partying during Spring Break, but even those moves were given the side-eye by DeSantis. Now the Florida leader is taking this sentiment a step farther. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s Clemency Board granted pardons Wednesday for Floridians with lingering fines issued for violating mask mandates implemented by local governments. “This action is necessary so that we can recover, have a good transition to normal operations, and also just a recognition that a lot of this stuff was way, way overboard,” DeSantis said. Democratic candidate for governor Nikki Fried was the only member on the board to oppose the pardons, according to local news outlet Fox 13. “I voted today to uphold our laws, while our so-called pro-law enforcement governor is actively encouraging people to break the law with politically motivated stunts like this,” Fried said in a statement following a Wednesday clemency board meeting. DeSantis is widely believed to have grander political aspirations, and this high-profile declaration of liberty is undoubtedly going to benefit his PR strategy as well.

Biden Demands that Americans Snitch on their ‘Radicalized’ Neighbors

Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous.

Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous. Biden is demanding that Americans be on the look-out for “radicalized” behavior and to call the police when they think they see it. Of course, by “radicalized,” he means being conservative and white. In a recent conversation with the press, a senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it spreads. The teleconference discussion was posted to the White House website. “We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said according to the White House posting. The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility. “This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends, or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official added. But instead of Islamic terror, Biden thinks we have to worry about evil white people. As Breitbart News reminded us all: Biden began his presidency with a stark warning in his inauguration speech about the “rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront, and we will defeat.” On June 1, Biden described the threat from “white supremacy” as the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.” The Biden administration said it would also work with large technology companies on “increased information sharing” to help combat radicalization. “Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well,” the official noted. “But the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the…
