Keep Quiet? Chick-fil-A Challenges Political Correctness

Ad Feedback

Piggybacking off the success of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," the National Organization for Marriage is calling on Americans to support traditional marriage by eating at the chicken sandwich chain every Wednesday through the November election.

Chick-fil-A has taken flap after its president Dan Cathy publicly voiced his support of traditional marriage.

Gay rights activists and other opponents are now working to ban the restaurant because of Cathy's conservative stance.

Over the weekend, Texas governor and former GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry also chimed in on the controversy, telling a group of Iowa conservatives that "political correctness has to stop."

"When conservatives are offended by a corporate policy, we simply choose not to give them our business," Perry said while speaking at an event hosted by The Family Leader.

He added that liberals, on the other hand, "try to keep everyone else from giving them business."

Chick-fil-A's battle calls into question the issue of political correctness and the growing pressure to keep quiet in America.
