This Saturday in Monroe CT there is a Huge GOP Rally being hosted by an ardent supporter of the anti-gay marriage Chick-Fil-A Corporation. Mitch Beck a Monroe Republican has purchased 100 Chick-Fili-A sandwiches which he originally intended to sell at the GOP Rally but amidst most push back from a number of equal rights activists he has decided instead to give the sandwiches away, keeping only 10 for himself and perhaps to share with a few selected haters. This GOP Rally is expecting over 500 people, attendees will include more than 30 republican candidates and elected officials. Some of the players are keynote speaker State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney. Steve Obsitnik, a Republican challenging in the 4th Congressional District race, 3rd District candidate Wayne Winsley, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, GOP Sate Assistant Minority Leader Rep. GOP Sate Toni Boucher, and State Rep. Gail Lavielle. The event is free and open to the public. Here are links to the full story with comments: http://monroe.patch.com/articles/republicans-plan-to-unite-after-the-primaries http://monroe.patch.com/articles/bring-on-the-republican-unity-hold-the-chick-fil-a Come to Monroe this Saturday and join-in the hate rally. There will be lots of hate to go around for everyone!

Carol does not have her facts right in the least bit. 1. The owner of Chick Fil A stated he believes the only definition of marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman. That does not equate to being against gay marriage. Supporting X does not mean you are against Y. 2. It is time to denounce these intolerant leftists and their bullying tactics. There is no hate, except from the insane gay marriage left. The left has abused and smeared everyone involved in this. When you do not agree with them, they call you bigot, hate monger, homophobe, among other names.

Carol, when government officials threaten to ruin a business because they do not like the owners politics or beliefs, it is a major problem. When a mayor of a city threatens to use bureaucratic delays to prevent a business from obtaining government required permits because of the mayor personal beliefs, it a real problem. The Chick-Fil-A issue is about government abusing it's power not about gay marriage. There still is a Constitution and Bill of Rights, no matter how much the left likes to trample them. Freedom of speech (and thought) are real rights. You are not required to agree with the owner of Chick-Fil-A or buy his products. But there should be zero tolerance for government officials using their power and position to bully citizens or businesses who do not agree with their politics or beliefs.
