I am both saddened and disgusted to report that Chick-fil-A has caved to self-centered LGBTQ activists and will reportedly no longer give charitable donations to the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Paul Anderson Youth Home.
For the record, the money went to the Salvation Army’s camps for kids and the Angel Tree program that provides a nice Christmas for poor families…to the FCA’s program that gives underprivileged inner city youth access to sports such as golf, tennis and archery…and to the Paul Anderson Youth Home to help troubled young males transform their lives through education, substance abuse treatment and Christian-based mentoring. Boy, that sure sounds homophobic, doesn’t it? And by the way: the claim that the Salvation Army discriminates against the LGBTQ community is a scurrilous lie:
Sorry if all you poor children have to go without Christmas or sports programs, but some deep-pockets LGBTQ activists who’ve appointed themselves as our moral superiors falsely redefined traditional religious beliefs as “bigotry and hatred,” and declared their own interests more important than yours.
Chick-fil-A issued a cover-your-buns response…
…but it still amounts to a gutless betrayal of the people who stood beside them in order to capitulate to a tiny but loud group that unfairly attacked them. Frankly, I don’t understand the business logic behind it. Despite the harping from the left, Chick-fil-A had grown to be the most popular fast food chain in the country. They hardly needed to cave in. And do they seriously believe they'll increase sales by alienating their core customer base to suck up to people who hate them (and who are NEVER satisfied; they're still attacking Chick-fil-A for not going far enough):
I’m not one of those people who believes in boycotting businesses and hurting the employees because I disagree with the political views of upper management. I have never called for boycotting Amazon, Apple or Starbucks, even though the politics of their leaders are diametrically opposed to mine. And I would never call for boycotting Chick-fil-A over this. But I suspect that many customers who felt a personal connection and loyalty to the brand no longer will. That’s a dumb business decision in the long run.
I’ll have more to say about this next weekend on my TBN TV show. In the meantime, if you’d like to let the intolerant self-appointed guardians of “tolerance” know what you think about their tactics, you can make direct donations to the organizations that Chick-fil-A will no longer sponsor. Here are the links, feel free to share. Just the cost of a chicken sandwich would be greatly appreciated.

While we’re on the subject, here’s yet another example of children suffering because LGBTQ activists can’t stop singing their favorite song: “Me, me, me, me, meeeee!”
And before we leave this, a related question: What was going through the heads of the people in charge of Sprite when they okayed this commercial campaign? Do they seriously believe this will sell soda? This is on the same level as endorsing genital mutilation.
You probably heard some of the breathless (in some cases, hopeful) reports of President Trump having chest pains and going to see a doctor at Walter Reed Military Medical Center over the weekend. Well, sorry to get you all excited, anti-Trumpers, but his doctor says it’s just more fake news.
Trump’s doctor said it was nothing but a routine, planned checkup that was kept off the record due to scheduling uncertainties, and he didn’t have chest pains or any other issues.
We’re now awaiting Adam Schiff’s subpoena for all his health records to see if the doctor is LYING about that. I’m sure Trump would be happy to send him a stool sample.
It appears that even though “bribery” won the latest focus group for the “grounds for impeachment du jour,” it wasn’t panning out evidence-wise. So House Democrats are now investigating whether Trump lied in his written testimony to Robert Mueller in the two-year investigation that found nothing. Because I’m sure he wrote those answers himself and they weren’t written by his attorneys or anything like that. Just like he made out his own tax forms.
This would be a good place to share a comment from Disqus user “TheMOSTvettedPrezinHistory,” who has compiled all the charges so far that the Dems have flung against Trump, only to see them fizzle and have them immediately move on to the next one. (If your browser doesn’t go straight to it, then scroll down and it should appear as the first comment. Trust me, by this date, the list is far too long to reproduce here.)
President Trump isn’t the only person who’s no fan of the New York Times. Sunday, the Times ran an article accusing Federal Express of not making good “on its promised investment surge” and of not paying any taxes in fiscal 2018.
That sparked a furious response from FedEx CEO Frederick W. Smith. He called the story “distorted and incorrect,” claiming that FedEx invested $6 billion in the US economy in that year. He also noted that the Times itself, using similar legal tax write-offs, made $111 million in 2017 and paid no taxes.
But here’s where things really get interesting: Smith didn’t just complain about the Times’ coverage of FedEx. He challenged Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger and the paper’s business section editor to a public debate on corporate investments and federal tax policy with him and FedEx’s corporate VP of taxes.
So far, there’s been no response from Sulzberger. If I had to guess, I’d say there is absolutely, positively no way that Sulzberger will be at that debate, overnight or in a million years.
