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

So disgraceful.

Published

on

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.

Trump, Pentagon Agree to Troop Escalation in The Middle East

The reason is plain to see.

Published

Donald Trump

The Middle East is again bracing for turbulence this week after a number of yet-unpunished acts of aggression perpetrated by Iran draw attention to the region. Such turmoil is nothing new in this particular corner of the globe, where religious and political tensions run high seemingly nonstop.  The escalation this week comes to us courtesy of Iran, who are being blamed for two attacks on the Saudi Arabian oil infrastructure. The first fracas took place on the high seas where underwater drones acting as torpedoes “sabotaged” several Saudi oil tankers.  Mere hours later, an airborne drone caused a disruptive explosion to a Saudi-owned pipeline. US President Donald Trump has maintained his hope for staying uninvolved throughout the incidents, but it looks like at least some American military members will be headed to the region. “We’re going to be sending a relatively small number of troops,” the president told reporters outside the White House on Friday. “Mostly protective. Some very talented people are going to the Middle East right now. And we’ll see what happens.” No large military units, such as U.S. Army brigade combat teams, are expected to deploy. Instead, senior military leaders want to deploy an additional Patriot anti-aircraft missile battery, a defensive weapon system. They also want to deploy another warship or submarine to the region, more surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft and potentially more Air Force fighter jets. The total number of troops being deployed is said to be around 2,000. The drama between the US and Iran has been growing ever-more severe since President Trump effectively nullified America’s involvement in an Obama-era “nuclear deal” between the two nations.

Fake News Non-Neurologists Diagnose The Donald Live On Air

Never before has a President been subjected to so many uneducated opinions on his mental acuity.

Joe Scarborough

The ways in which President Donald Trump has been criticized are unprecedented in American history. Rising to power from outside of the Washington Swamp was Trump’s first sin in the eyes of many DC fat cats.  This CEO-in-Chief has wasn’t elected to play their game, and it shows both in Trump’s economic effectiveness and in the opposition that he’s face. Simply put:  The President is a threat to the Beltway’s cozy career politicians. That fact, when amplified by the existence of “the resistance”, has somehow given the mainstream media carte blanche to speculate wildly about this President. Take the latest from Morning Joe, for instance. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski agreed Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “sharp as a tack” while President Trump’s mental capacity has “completely changed.” The co-hosts discussed the ongoing feud between Pelosi, D-Calif., and Trump, which erupted this week after Pelosi accused Trump of engaging in a “cover-up” and the president cut short a meeting on infrastructure with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Scarborough said he’s known Pelosi for 25 years and she’s “tougher today than she was” back then and the difference between the two is “not even close.” The footage was pure media hysteria. https://twitter.com/Morning_Joe/status/1131866287032938496 President Trump has long suffered from the uninformed and uneducated opinions on non-doctors in the mainstream media, but with the focus suddenly on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s linguistic acuity, these attacks have been ramped up significantly.
