Franklin Graham Has Strong Words for Chick-fil-A Bullies

Franklin Graham will not tolerate New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's bullying of conservative—or their favorite chicken sandwiches.  

"Can you imagine a city where a popular, successful business is singled out and attacked by the mayor who calls for a boycott—all because the business owners let it be known that they operate by Christian principles and believe in God's definition of marriage? You don't have to imagine. That's exactly what just happened to one of America's most successful businesses. Chick-fil-A has almost 2000 restaurants and sales of more than $6 billion annually. You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone that doesn't like their chicken sandwiches—and their high quality service," Graham posted to Facebook.  

"I have known the owners of Chick-fil-A, the Cathy family, for many years and have great respect for them. They just opened a new store in New York and Mayor De Blasio took the gloves off and came after them, calling for a boycott. Doesn't this sound like bullying, intolerance, and discrimination? All because someone won't roll over to the LGBT agenda." 

De Blasio came against Chick-fil-A during a recent press conference. 

"I'm certainly not going to patronize them, and I wouldn't urge any other New Yorker to patronize them. But they do have a legal right," he said.  

"This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love. ... It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations," the mayor said.
