Skippy Foster, Editor and now Publisher of the bankrupt and sold out Shelby Star, has always advocated legalizing prostitution, legalizing drugs and legalizing gambling. Skippy has always given Wicca (the Witchcraft cult who owns the roads in front of WalMart and the Hospital) and the gays and lesbians favored treatment on the Shelby Star’s online blogs and message boards. Skippy would “ban” anyone who posted strong Christian viewpoints and quoted the Bible. Christian viewpoints and quotes from the Bible were labeled “Hate” by the Wicca and gay agenda crowd and Skippy would dutifully ban the Christian viewpoints that offended the gays and wiccca nit-wits. On the other hand, Skippy’s band of gays and wicca would condemn Christian Preachers, calling them haters who preached hate and other vile names without fear of being banned from the Star.
Recently Skippy appealed, through the Shelby Star, for voters to kill the NC Constitutional Amendment banning same sex marriage. The amendment to keep liberal and crazy (in our opinion) judges like Skippy’s wife, Judge Anna F. (Dina) Foster, from ruling the laws passed by the NC General Assembly against same sex marriage were unconstitutional. Skippy attacked Christian leaders like the Pastor of Elizabeth Baptist Church, Dr. Rit Varriale, who opposed Skippy, the Shelby Star’s advocacy of gay “rights” (gay “wrongs” would be a better description) and the gay community’s efforts to ram their “wrongs” down everybody’s throats. But the VOTE on Election Day was decisive. Skippy, the Shelby Daily Liar and the gay community lost the vote by an overwhelming margin- 4 to 1.
More recently Skippy is has given much of Shelby Star’s news space to the gays and lesbians who would boycott “Chick-Fil-A.” The “Chick-Fil-A” CEO stated he opposed same-sex (gay) marriage and Skippy joined in with his liberal media buddies around the country to make a big deal out of gays and lesbians advocating the boycott of Chick-Fil-A. Skippy and his band of gays jumped on board with their self righteous rantings and declared they were going destroy Chick-Fil-A. But enough was enough. The vast majority of Cleveland County, North Carolina and United States citizens, including myself, decided we were going to eat at Chick-Fil-A more often than before.
Then Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, a Baptist Minister suggested we should make Wednesday, August 1, Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. As I was coming up 74 on Wednesday, I took the right hand “left” turn lane as I normally would to get to Chick-Fil-A and WalMart. I noticed the line was exceptionally long and it took two light changes before I could see what was going on. The road into Chick-Fil-A was packed and backed up way back on 74 East and 74 West. I was stuck right in the middle of the main 74 traffic heading West. I had to switch lanes and go into the WalMart parking lot, along with hundreds of others. Chick-Fil-A’s parking lot was full. WalMart’s parking lot nearest Chick-Fil-A had many cars and people were walking across to Chick-Fil-A. The summer heat didn’t make any difference, people were showing their pride in their Christian values any which way they could.
It turned out to be Chick-Fil-A’s best day ever all across North Carolina and America. Just like Election Day when Cleveland County voters and North Carolina voters overwhelmingly passed the Constitutional Amendment against gay marriage, people voted with their pocketbook on Wednesday, August 1, that Christian values stand for something. Wendy’s Restaurant also put on their sign “We Stand With Chick-Fil-A.” So, the gays and Skippy must have gone hungry on Wednesday, August 1.
But then, the gay and lesbian supporters around the country flocked to StarBucks and plotted their strategy. They were going to go to Chick-Fil-A and stage a “kiss-in”. They would buy nothing and block customers and their small children with lewd displays of homosexual kissing. The gay and lesbian crowd was smart enough NOT to do that in Cleveland County. The gay and lesbian crowd is also asking voters to “Stand with President Obama on Gay and lesbian rights.” I didn’t see much of that in Cleveland County either.
What becomes obvious in all this is, Why is there no organized boycott of the Shelby Star and Skippy Foster’s anti Christian bias??? Why not boycott the Shelby Star’s major advertisers too. Like First National Bank, Carter Chevrolet, Keeter Ford, Belk and anybody else that runs over a quarter-page add in the Star. Bottom line is this. These bigger advertisers enable Skippy and the Star to do what they do. And these advertiser’s customers enable the advertisers to do what they do. Folks like you and me can turn Cleveland County around in a flash. We support Chick-Fil-A with our business because Chick-Fil-A management publically supports Christian values.
Christians are the majority in Cleveland County, North Carolina and the USA. Why have Christian been ashamed of being Christians for so long. It is totally legal to exercise your Christian Values this year when you slide your ballot into the ballot box on Election Day. It is totally legal to exercise Christian Values in your everyday decisions on where to purchase your goods and services. It is totally legal to pull your money from First National Bank and go down the street to another bank as an exercise of your Christian Values or for any other reason. It is totally legal to cancel your subscription to the Shelby Star as an exercise in your Christian Values. The evils advocated in the Shelby Star can be easily stopped by the Christians in Cleveland County. Or you can be deceived by the devil into not reading the Citizens For Good Government any more and keep on reading and believing Skippy Foster. The choice is yours.
