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.

BOMBSHELL: Report Claims Ukraine Colluded With Hillary Campaign to Defeat Trump

How about them apples?

All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The leak of the so-called “black ledger” files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years. Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign. Well, that seems like kind of a problem, huh? Will the mainstream media care to report?? The Hillary Clinton campaign has seemingly been routinely caught working with outside sources to gain insight on Trump. Why is there no media coverage on that angle? Why such hypocrisy? Why such a double standard? Those were rhetorical. Now, it seems as though a foreign government official once offered the Hillary campaign information on then-candidate Donald Trump. From American Mirror: A high-ranking member in the Verkohvna Rada of Ukraine is accusing the head of the country’s anti-corruption bureau of leaking information about associates of Donald Trump to the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016, according to the television station 112 UA.

New Zealand Prime Minister Just Banned ‘Semi-Automatic’ Guns After Mosque Shooting

Liberals will have a field day…

50 people were killed after a man opened fire at a mosque in New Zealand. It was a terrible tragedy that the far-left mainstream media has decided to link to President Trump, because, of course. Now, the prime minister of the country has decided to ban “military-style semi-automatic” weapons. From Fox News: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday announced the country was immediately banning “military-style semi-automatic weapons” after last week’s attack that killed 50 people at two mosques. Ardern noted, “As I’ve said, what we’ve done here is taken out the guns out of circulation that are most critical to be addressed urgently and that’s what we’ve announced, with essentially almost immediate effect.” Ardern added: “There is more to be done and tranche two will look at issues around licensing, issues around registration, issues around storage. There are a range of other amendments that we believe do need to be made and that will be the second tranche of reforms yet to come.” This is clearly an impulsive move from the New Zealand government. Liberals will be elated. Democrats love them some “sanctuary cities” for people who aren’t supposed to be in the country. Now, some proud American sheriffs are set to make their counties sanctuaries for gun owners in order to preserve their citizens’ Second Amendment rights. Here are the details… From Reuters: A rapidly growing number of counties in at least four states are declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, refusing to enforce gun-control laws that they consider to be infringements on the U.S. constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Organizers of the pro-gun sanctuaries admit they took the idea from liberals who have created immigration sanctuaries across the United States where local officials defy the Trump administration’s efforts to enforce tougher immigration laws. Now local…
