Chick-fil-A is the most recent high-profile company to come under attack for its Christian business practices, and is the proverbial poster child when it comes to the Left's assault on Judeo-Christian values.

The restaurant chain is under assault for remarks made by CEO Dan Cathy, who said, "We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business ... and we give God thanks for that. ... We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that, and we intend to stay the course."

The mayors of some of America's largest cities, including Boston, Chicago and San Francisco, have made known their objection to Christian businesses, and they made clear their intent to make it difficult for Chick-fil-A to operate in their cities.

Boston mayor Thomas Menino unilaterally declared Chick-fil-A could not open franchises in the city "unless they open up their policies." Menino warned, "if they need licenses in the city, it will be very difficult," adding, "There is no place for [Chick-fil-A] along Boston's Freedom Trail. Chick-fil-A doesn't belong in Boston. We're an open city, we're a city that's at the forefront of inclusion." Those demands were followed by Obama's former chief of staff and now Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who said, "Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values. They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. if you're gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values." (Apparently, Chicago values include becoming the murder capital of the nation and hosting Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, the Christian-hating race baiter who, ironically, opposes same-sex marriage.) Predictably, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee also jumped over the rainbow, saying he was "very disappointed Chick-fil-A doesn't share [our] values and strong commitment to equality for everyone. ... The closest Chick-fil-A is 40 miles away, and I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer."

Now understand, Chick-fil-A does not discriminate. That would be contrary to Christian doctrine, which instructs that we are to love the sinner and hate the sin. You can't love someone if you shut him or her (or it) out, and genuine Christians reach out to all people. The company policy states, "The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect -- regardless of their belief, race creed, sexual orientation or gender."

The same can be said of tens of thousands of other businesses, whose Christian owners infuse their organizations with faith-based values. Some of those brands are Big Idea Entertainment (VeggieTales), Forever 21, eHarmony, Whole Foods, Tom's of Maine, Interstate Battery, Tyson Foods, ServiceMaster, Marriott International, Alaska Airlines, In-N-Out Burger and Hobby Lobby. (No word yet from Menino, Emanuel and Lee about boycotting the rest of Christendom.)

In response, we, the undersigned, declare our support for any business that operates according to the dictates of Judeo-Christian values, and oppose any and all Leftist bigotry against the same. Accordingly we also declare a boycott against tourism or business conventions in any city that declares its opposition to such Christian owned and operated businesses.
