Is This America?! Mayors of Boston and Chicago Move to Ban Chick-fil-A | CatholicVote.org

And I’m back from my two week hiatus!  The sun is shining and the grass is green and the news is as saddening as ever.  My heart goes out to those involved in the Colorado shooting and for the conversion of their shooter.

My reason for posting:

Is This America?! Mayors of Boston and Chicago Move to Ban Chick-fil-A | CatholicVote.org.

“How do liberals, who constantly accuse us of intolerance, get to the point where they use their elected power to “intolerate”, to the point of persecution and legal action, those of us who disagree with them?

Simple: gay activists have pushed the gay marriage issue as an argument for civil rights. And in this country, we have ways of dealing with people who violate the civil rights of others. Gay activists and their liberal converts have so accepted the (false) premise that to oppose gay marriage is the same as opposing interracial marriage that they really intend to treat us the equivalent of bigots who are racists.

Alderman Moreno when he announced his plan to block Chick-fil-A’s plan to open a restaurant in his Ward referred to President Cathy’s “bigoted, homophobic comments” and went on to say, “Because of this man’s ignorance, I will now be denying Chick-fil-A’s permit to open a restaurant in the 1st Ward” … simply astounding.”

I refer to the headline… IS THIS AMERICA??!

Go to Chick-Fil-A today.  It may not do much, but something is better than nothing and money is what talks in this world. Let’s hope people begin to listen.

Adult children’s ‘bad mothering’ lawsuit dismissed | The Salt Lake Tribune

Adult children’s ‘bad mothering’ lawsuit dismissed | The Salt Lake Tribune.

“Chicago • Raised in a $1.5 million Barrington Hills, Ill., home by their attorney father, two grown children have spent the last two years pursuing a unique lawsuit against their mom for “bad mothering” that alleges damages caused when she failed to buy toys for one and sent another a birthday card he didn’t like.

The alleged offenses include failing to take her daughter to a car show, telling her then 7-year-old son to buckle his seat belt or she would contact police, “haggling” over the amount to spend on party dresses and calling her daughter at midnight to ask that she return home from celebrating homecoming.

Last week, at which point the court record stood about a foot tall, an Illinois appeals court dismissed the case, finding that none of the mother’s conduct was “extreme or outrageous.” To rule in favor of her children, the court found, “could potentially open the floodgates to subject family childrearing to … excessive judicial scrutiny and interference.””

Good for that judge.

This story gets more and more ridiculous, especially the “alleged offenses”……
