Chick-fil-A sells you out

Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy Sells Out – Heeds Advice of ‘Gay’ Activist to Retreat on Pro-Natural-Marriage Advocacy

Are you disturbed by how Chick-fil-A will no longer donate to Christian organizations that oppose the unnatural, unhealthy, tyrannical, unbiblical “LGBTQIA+” agenda?

I’m sad about it too. But I’m not shocked, because I saw this coming.

You see, in 2012, which is the same year that more than a million pro-family Americans showed up at local Chick-fil-A’s to support the outspoken man-woman marriage virtues of Chick-fil-A’s “Christian” CEO Dan Cathy, this mild-mannered heir to his father’s restaurant business quietly met with a homosexual activist, who “helped” the fast-food giant play “nice” and redefine “love” as going silent about people’s sins.

This happened the very same year that SaveCalifornia.com followed Mike Huckabee’s call for “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” and urged all our consitutents to spend money at Chick-fil-A, and in the process produced an exciting 10-minute SaveCalifornia.com video to promote Chick-fil-A’s (at the time) Christian values.

Sadly, it took less than six years for Chick-fil-A to totally sell out by siding with homosexual and transsexual activists against the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, all because the tyrannical “LGBTQIA+” mob had labeled SA and FCA “anti-LGBT” organizations.

I’m not alone in my sadness about Chick-fil-A siding with evil against good. Joining me in blasting Chick-fil-A for rejecting biblical and family values and instead advancing the “LGBTQIA+” agenda are national pro-family leaders, including the founder of the August 1, 2012 “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” Mike Huckabee, Focus on the Family president Jim Daly, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon, Christian radio talk host Janet Mefferd, Christian blogger Matt Walsh, and Christian apologist Michael Brown, among others.

For the love of God and to love people, they’re correctly rebuking Chick-fil-A for claiming to be “Christian,” but caving to “LGBTQIA+” activists, while selling out biblical Christian ministries and instead funding pro-“LGBT” organizations, such as “Covenant House.” (See the evidence)

For this reason, it is love for all moral conservatives to rebuke and shun Chick-fil-A. Because Chick-fil-A’s new policy PUNISHES Christianity, we must do what we can to remind everyone that moral speech is free speech and religious freedom that is enshired in our U.S. Constitution.

I mean, do you want Chick-fil-A to prosper in its message and example of trampling Christian values? And do you want want Chick-fil-A to snuff out the Gospel message of repenting of sins and what sexual sins include? Every person who believes in God’s Word should say “absolutely not!”

Here are just some of the the loving outcomes if lots of people with moral values avoided Chick-fil-A:

  1. People learn to not support evil policies.
  2. Christians, especially, learn that loving Jesus Christ is to not partner with evil.
  3. Children, especially, learn that it is evil to oppose the Bible and religious freedom.
  4. Christians, especially, learn to act upon their values.
  5. Other businesses, seeing how Chick-fil-A is losing, not gaining, customers, will be more likely to tolerate Christian values instead of punishing Christian values.
  6. Homosexuality and transsexuality are not promoted as much, resulting in more respect for religious freedom and fewer children being damaged.
  7. Constitutional religious freedom (loyalty to God) is promoted more in our land.

Bottom line, it’s healthier when we avoid fast food, and America will get better, not worse, if Christians and other moral conservatives cling to what’s right and shirk what’s wrong. As for me, I’m sticking with the Bible and telling Chick-fil-A to take a hike. “No mor” of their chicken for me.

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
Romans 1:26-27

Gov. Newsom and the Democrats are making you poorer

Sunday, February 24, 2019, 1:50 pm | Randy Thomasson


It was a privilege to rally with around 250 California conservatives Feb. 23 on the steps of the State Capitol.

Rally speakers accurately blamed new Gov. Gavin Newsom and other immoral Democrat politicians for the chronic problems in California, and I held up a large sign warning that “Gov. Newsom wants to jack up your taxes and fees.” See the short video (2:20) of speaker Erin Cruz and then see me walking up with my powerful sign.

Because Newsom has already proposed taxing your drinking water. And Newsom’s also threatening Californians with new taxes on currently untaxed small business services (pool cleaning, lawn care, house cleaning, etc.) as well as threatening job-providers that own commercial property with higher property taxes (eliminating Proposition 13’s protections).

See what the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and the California Taxpayers Association say about the negative consequences of all this.

The election of the uber-liberal Gavin Newsom has stunned, angered, and awakened California conservatives. And rightfully concerned they are, because of Newsom’s dreams of taxing drinking water and imposing new taxes on very small businesses and upon job-providers who own commercial property. Gavin Newsom is proving once again that Democrat politicians aren’t ‘for the poor,’ but that Democrats make you poor.

“The power to tax is the power to destroy.”
Daniel Webster and John Marshall, 1819

Time for California conservatives to come out of the closet

Friday, December 7, 2018, 3:35 pm | Randy Thomasson

It’s spiritually dark in California. Are you motivated to bring out your moral “flashlight”? Because average people desperately need the light that you shine with SaveCalifornia.com.

First, because there’s an aggressive new attack on your moral and family values

Two powerful, wealthy homosexual activists in California are launching a two-prong war to try to scare people of faith into silence.

Homosexual-activist TV producer Ryan Murphy says he’ll spend millions of dollars in his goal to defeat family-values candidates and elect pro-perversity replacements, in California and around the nation. And Tim Cook, the homosexual-activist head of Apple, says he’s increasing his censorship of “those who push hate [and] division” from Apple’s platforms.

Yet I ask, what about those who hate truth, hate facts, and hate pro-family people that leftists call “haters?” And what about liberals who try to “divide out” moral Americans and ostracize them? In their tyrannical attack upon free speech, these homosexual activists are showing their hypocrisy. They want their First Amendment, but want to deny you your American birthright.

These tyrannical attacks remind me of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi government oppressing and persecuting the European Jews. Remember, before being deported to concentration camps where 5-6 million Jews were killed, the Jews living under “The Third Reich” suffered nine years of increasing, systematic elimination of their basic rights. Their free speech, religious rights, political rights, business rights, consumer choices, education choices — all gone.

Similarly, homosexual-transsexual activists want to eliminate your constitutional rights (religious freedom, free speech, freedom to petition and protest) and your pre-constitutional rights (ownership rights, parental rights, etc.) Ultimately, they want to shut you up — so they’ll never hear the loving, rescuing facts that their behavior is unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, and destructive, and that they can escape it as thousands have done.

This is why Apple banned me from iTunes. And it’s why, I expect, under Tim Cook’s blatant censorship, you’ll see other pro-family voices banned. Ready to give up your iPhone?

The threatening tyranny of the “LGBT” agenda is one of your big reasons to stand strong with SaveCalifornia.com. As God gives us breath, neither I nor SaveCalifornia.com will stop helping people understand why marriage is only for a man and a woman, why children do best with a married father and mother under the same roof, why there are only two sexes (male and female), and why there’s no such thing as “transgender” since a male has an inherited Y chromosome and a female doesn’t — and this cannot change.

Second, because Democrats in control of state government have an evil agenda

With California’s ballot-box-stuffing “blue wave,” Democrats now control nearly 3/4ths of the State Legislature. And they want to pass some expensive, mind-blowing bills:

1. Free community college: While the first year is already “free,” Democrat politicians want the next year “free” too. Which means you and other taxpayers would be taxed more.

Average people have to realize that it’s not “Democrats are for the poor,” but “Democrats make you poor.” Because to be a Democrat politician these days, you must believe in one foundational agenda item: take from the responsible to give to the irresponsible. This is the Democrats’ lie-based, thieving worldview. So they a) grow big government all the bigger, b) shirk good-government priorities, and c) when it comes to “free” community college, they tell 18- and 19-year-olds that holding a part-time job is “too hard” for them.

2. Government healthcare for illegal aliens: California’s Democrat politicians also want to give “free” healthcare to illegal aliens, which could cost $3 BILLION per year.

With un-American policies like these, I can only conclude that Californians who vote for Democrats are either big-government liberals, dumbed-down college grads, prostituting government workers, or foolish people who trust the TV news and who never think critically. These radical Democrat bills are just a taste of what you and I must publicly expose as wrong and also must explain the good that should be done instead.

3. Gavin Newsom’s big, expensive liberal dreams: As veteran political columnist Dan Walters explains, uber-liberal Democrat Governor-Elect Gavin Newsom’s promised agenda includes these expensive items:

“Guaranteed health care for all. A ‘Marshall Plan’ for affordable housing. A master plan for aging with dignity. A middle-class workforce strategy. A cradle-to-college promise for the next generation. An all-hands approach to ending child poverty.”

Translated, this means that Newsom and the Democrats intend to replace:

1. Parents (with a government “nanny”)
2. Your private business (with socialism regulating job-creators to death)
3. Your own money (with even higher taxes)
4. Your personal merit (with racist/sexual favoritism)
5. Your medical choices (with government-run healthcare)
6. Personal responsibility (with more “welfare” handouts)
7. Citizenship (with equivalency to being an illegal alien)

Lesson: Democrat politicians = government owning you by another name (Communism in disguise).

Do you see why, together, we must expose what the Democrat politicians are doing? This is why you need SaveCalifornia.com and SaveCalifornia.com needs you. Because each time the average person hears about a shocking, new Democrat bill and thinks “ouch,” you and I need to be there to explain how the “hurt” is not helpful, but harmful.

And third, because love for others requires decisive action

What gets you going in life? Or what inspires you to donate to a cause? The usual motivators of life are Self-Interest, Fear, Anger, Love, or Faith. But when dealing with the pain and complexity of politics and culture, your motive must be Love. Yes, our Love for God and people must propel us. For love has staying power in the face of opposition and when suffering for the sake of righteousness.
