0727_chik_fil_a_article
A key member of the Chick-fil-A public relations department died of a heart attack this morning ... this in the middle of the biggest PR crisis the fast food chain has ever faced.

Chick-fil-A released a statement saying, "We are saddened to report the news to you that our dear friend Don Perry, vice president of public relations, passed away suddenly this morning."

As Chick-fil-A came under fire for its stance against gay marriage ... Perry spoke on behalf of the restaurant chain in an effort to smooth things over with the public ... promising to "leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”

Chick-fil-A added, "Don was a member of our Chick-fil-A family for nearly 29 years.  He was a well-respected and well-liked media executive in the Atlanta and University of Georgia communities, and we will all miss him."

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family."

How ironic. Liberals have always revolted against the control of big brother, and here they have become the very THOUGHT POLICE they fought against all those years. If you don’t think exactly like they do then you are to be condemned! Hello? Anyone out there able to put 2 + 2 together to see the hypocrisy?

The insensitive comments really show the true nature of some people and really belittles the cause they stand for. Shame on you and I hope people see you all for what heartless creatures you really are.

Why if a liberal speaks their mind, they are praised. Say like the Dixie Chicks.

But a non-liberal speaks their mind, and they are vilified?

You're not allowed to have an opinion different from my opinion. And if your opinion is different from my opinion and my friends opinion in the liberal media, then we want to destroy you so you cannot ever express your opinion any more. You see, if you have an opinion different from mine and my media friends, then you are evil and need to be punished and shunned. Your opinion, just by being different from mine, means you are a hateful, bigoted, racist, (probably Christian) person, who deserves to be slandered and humiliated in the media until you and your family shut up and never publicly speak of your opinion ever again. Why you ask? Because these are the principles we have decided that the world should live by.
