Editorial: Christian religious persecution

Some Denver city councilors want to prevent the Denver Airport from allowing a Chick-fil-A restaurant in the airport.

Why? Because the CEO of Chick-fil-A believes that marriage is between one man and one woman.

The councilors are not alleging discrimination by the restaurant chain or its employees. No, this is a classic case of “viewpoint discrimination.”

In progressive America, you are not allowed to disagree with liberal dogma. The councilors are also upset that the Chick-fil-A would be closed on Sundays (for religious reasons).

A few years ago, liberals called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A because of an interview done by its founder in which he said he believed in marriage as taught in the Bible.

Americans responded with a Chick-fil-A appreciation day (called for by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee) and hundreds of thousands of liberty loving Americans ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at Chick-fil-A.

By the way, it’s hard to find an airport with all of its restaurants open on any day of the week.

Christians own and operate Chick-fil-A and they don’t deny food to anyone. Liberals who want to punish Chick-fil-A for holding Biblical views can eat somewhere else (they won’t because the food is too good).

But the government should not ban Chick-fil-A at the Denver Airport just because they hold to the traditional view of marriage taught for centuries in the Bible.

Religious persecution of Christians is alive and well in America.
