I guess this shouldn’t surprise me coming out of California. The state is known for its liberal ways including the first openly gay community back in the 1970s. All one has to do to get a brief glimpse at the liberalness of California is look at the last 50 years of history of the San Francisco area and their city politics. And let’s not forget two of their notable members of Congress, Rep Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters.
The football booster club at Ventura High School had plans to sell Chick-fil-A sandwiches during a back to school fundraiser. Their plans were shot down by Val Wyatt the school’s principal.
Why did she ban the healthier than beef sandwiches? Because she thought some parents and students would be offended due to the anti-gay policy of Chick-fil-A’s founder and his son. Truett Cathy, founder of the restaurant chain and his son and CEO Dan Cathy are devout Christians and publicly stated that homosexuality is a sin and will bring God’s judgment down on America. They are 100% right. Just read Romans 1:18-31 and then compare it to America today and you will see that we are under God’s judgment already.
Wyatt tried to explain her discriminatory actions by saying:
“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.”
Sadly, Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, Superintendent of the Ventura Unified School District backed up Wyatt’s position, stating:
“We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus and all of our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission.”
Robert Shaffer is the owner of the local Chick-fil-A in Ventura. Since he first opened his restaurant, he has donated $21,000 to the Ventura school district. He had planned to donate around 200 meals to the booster club which would have helped them raise close to $1,600. The proceeds were to be used to help buy new uniforms, supplies and foods to sell at the games.
Shaffer responded to the ban on his meal donation saying:
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t have a stance on gay marriage. We treat everyone who walks through our doors, regardless of their religion or sexual orientation, with honor, dignity and respect.”
Take note in the video above how biased the media was in their coverage. They never interviewed Shaffer or anyone who opposed the principal’s ban. However, in their report on the incident, The Daily Caller not only quoted Shaffer, but they also quoted one of the parents who was outraged by Wyatt’s decision to ban the chicken sandwiches. Michelle Cisneros told the media:
“Everybody is embraced, and Chick-fil-A should have been allowed to be here.”
According to Shaffer, his restaurant does not ban or discriminate against anyone, yet he is being punished for something he has no control over. This is typical out of the gay community and gay rights activists. They scream and preach tolerance yet they are among the most intolerant of all. They demand that everyone tolerate and accept them, but they are completely unwilling to accept anyone that has a differing view than theirs. They only want the First Amendment rights of free speech and freedom of religion to apply to themselves, but not to anyone who believes differently.
If I was Shaffer, I would look into the possibility of talking legal action against Wyatt and Arriaga for wrongfully discriminating against him and his desire to support the local school district. Their actions are discriminating against him for religious and sexual orientation issues which the law states cannot be used for discriminatory purposes. It’s time people start standing up to gay rights activists and start taking them to court for infringing on our legal rights.
