MASSIVE LINES at Chick-fil-A on “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” (Several Updates)

Today is “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

After intolerant and First Amendment-hating Chicago politicians blocked Chick-fil-A from building a restaurant, former Governor Mike Huckabee announced his support for the restaurant chain and its Constitutional right of free speech. He declared today Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Allen sent this picture from west county St. Louis.

Allen added: People are standing in line 100+ deep to go inside. The lines go out and around the building. Two lines of drive through cars are around the shopping center.

Gwilym and Ari David sent this from Los Angeles.


St. Louisans also came out in huge numbers to show their support for the First Amendment.

The lot was jam-packed…
(Mike took these photos in Chesterfield, Missouri.)

The line goes around the block.

The line of cars wraps all the way around to the main boulevard, where the line still continues.

The surrounding streets and parking lots are packed.

The restaurant is full and the line goes out the door.

Normally, with this crowd volume you would expect short tempers and bedlam. That’s not the case today at Chick-fil-A. While the surrounding restaurant chains are empty, the people in this line are happily making a statement, talking to each other with smiles on their faces. They’re patriots taking a stand against a gross violation of our First Amendment right. And they are doing it in 100 degree temperatures.

Any bets if this will make the MSM tonight?

If you have more photos please send them in!

Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) bought Chick-fil-A for his office staff today.

Here’s a photo from Texas.

Ruth Wendelken sent this from Texas: This is at 11:15 at the Los Colinas Texas Chick-fil-a. Notice the line is three cars wide around the building. The line of foot traffic is huge. Notice the sign of 315 cars served at that time. Now in center line. Its a great day for Freedom of speech. Take that Boston, Chicago and San Francisco!

Bud from Virginia sent this: We have 3 stores here in Fredericksburg, VA and each one was jammed packed with cars; the drive-thru lanes wrapped around the building and overflow parking was required.

The attached picture shows overflow parking on the right and the Chick-Fil-A lot on the left.

Chicago values? These nuns were spotted at the Chicago restaurant.

More… Ryan M. sent this from Virginia:

I recently moved to Reston, Virginia with my new wife Amanda and I wanted to let you know that the Chick-fil-A here was PACKED to the brim all day. I went up there at 7pm hoping to avoid the lines but I ended up parking at a hotel several hundred feet down the street. I stood in line with hundreds of fellow supporters for a half an hour just to get two lemonades and a brownie (for the wife). I would have bought chicken, but alas, I am allergic. Anyway, just wanted to let you know.

** Here are pictures from Irvine, California.

Here’s a shot from the Northridge, California Chick-fil-A.

Here’s a photo I took from today, August 1, 2012…. The cars in line for drive thru window went down the street (at least 50 cars on the street before the driveway), plus the people in line to walk into order ran around the back of the building. This Northridge California franchise is owned by a young woman in her 20’s. God bless America!

    It seems odd that there should be four empty spots right in front even as folks are lined up to get in. They don’t appear to be restricted spots.

    In any event, reports here in Cleveland indicate long lines of people and cars at the local franchise.

    70 minutes at Chick-Fil-A. The entire time there were 40-50 cars in the drive-through line. When I arrived (and foolishly opted to go inside) I was the 24th person standing OUTSIDE the door. Never been there before but will go again; great food, super pleasant personnel.

  • archtop

    “Wait till the gays show up for a Kiss in…”

    I’m sure nothing will happen to them – they’ll probably even buy some food, like it, and wonder what all the fuss was about…

    Meanwhile, the intolerant mayors of Boston and Chicago will send out the police if CFA dares to sell a single chicken sandwich in their cities…

  • Kiliman

    Just got back from Chick-fil-A here in Chesapeake, VA. It was controlled chaos. The restaurant was jam-packed, but the employees were like a well-oiled machine. You placed your order, and within 5 minutes your name was called.

    The one thing that always impressed me, besides the awesome sandwiches, is how friendly everyone is. I’m glad I was able to show them my appreciation today!

    Got to my local Chick-fil-a about10:30 and the lines were very long,went in and stood in line with 4 or 5 National Guardsmen,people were coming up to them and thanking them for their service,saw one older man (a vet) give a young mother some money for ice cream for her children and everyone was very patient and jovial. It made my heart swell with pride to see this outpouring of support. I said to one of the guardsmen that I hoped we saw this support in November to take our country back and he agreed with me wholeheartedly. When I left police were there to help with traffic. Thank you fellow americans for this turnout.ABO2012

    You know, I had never heard of Chik-fil-A until the flap arose. There are none here, so I’m going to have to go almost to Boston to eat at one. With gas prices close to over the moon, that isn’t just a day trip these days, but we’ll be going down in the 15th and Chik-fil-A is definitely on the schedule.

  • OldSailor

    These reports warm this old salt’s heart guys. I’m also hearing unconfirmed reports that other fast food outlets, Wendy’s in particular have signs out front saying “We support Chic-fil-A.” As I said, unconfirmed but it wouldn’t surprise me to be true. Businessmen tend to stick together on the important stuff, and standing against the current regime IS important stuff.

    BTW Kiliman #20, I work in Chesapeake but wasn’t able to get out for lunch. That restaurant near Sam’s and SuperWally must be a zoo. I wonder if the “kiss-in” nuts will have the courage to show up Friday after today’s display.

  • Joanne

    Now this is what I am talking about – voicing your support for traditional marriage and being entitled to your opinion or faith. Power is with the people. How about All the American people uniting to support America and all she can be, instead of those who support all she can offer.

    The CFA just outside of Boston in the Burlington Mall had a line 3 people thick that stretched from one end of the food court to the other, out into the mall, past the escalators and was 500 feet long.

    Chick-fil-A fans fight back: Half
    a MILLION expected to take to the
    streets to support fast food chain
    at center of gay marriage firestorm

    Hundreds of thousands of customers are pouring into Chick-fil-A restaurants today to fight back against boycotts and vitriol aimed at the fast food chain over remarks from its CEO that he opposes gay marriage. Nearly 600,000 people have pledged to attend Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, an event organized by former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee to support ‘a company run by Christian principles.’ The escalating culture war over the Atlanta-based company with 1,600 stores threatens to turn the humble southern-style chicken sandwich into a political statement instead of a food item. Gay rights supportrs have promised a counter-rally….

    Gay Rights Activists Plan Chick-fil-A Kiss-In

    In response to Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s recent interviews voicing the family-owned company’s support of traditional marriage, gay activist groups have organized a “kiss in” on Aug. 3.

    According to detractor’s of the controversial public relations standpoint, the policies instituted by Cathy and Chick-fil-A have caused a wake of hurt throughout the gay community. The nationwide protest was organized through social media channels and aims to promote awareness and foster a more tolerant view.

  • Patty

    The Manchester location was crammed full too. Line out the door and both sides of Manchester had lines of cars a few blocks long. Even with all of this the service was fast and everyone was great.

    According to a report in the Daily Rash, the mayor of Boston says his heroic fight against Chick-fil-A prevented a homosexual holocaust.

  • Collatinus

    When I finally got to the front of the line, I was considering getting two sandwiches, but only got one (our Chick-fil-A is in a shopping mall with limited storage space and I wasn’t sure that they would have enough food to last the day). Then I went to the point where I had first got in line and said, “It’s about an hour from here.” At that point the line stretched out the door, around the corner, and was probably twice as long as when I had arrived. The local NBC affiliate had a TV crew there, too.

    They are building a new Chick-fil-A restaurant a ten minute walk from where I live, so in a few months I won’t need to travel across town.

    Harris went on a food run for her staff during her show in support of Chick-fil-A. A.J. walked up to her car at the drive-thru and told her he was there in response to her call for support of “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

  • MicahStone

    I had to drive nearly 40 miles (one way) to the nearest Chick-fil-A. There was a long line for food, but it moved quickly. I enjoyed my lunch there not just because of the good food, but also because it clearly pi$$ed off every lunatic-leftist in the area. [In many cars driving by the restaurant, the occupants either gave the finger (d-cRAT socialists) or honked and waved their support (normal people who respect the 1st Amendment). The latter far out-numbered the former. It was an interesting experience.]

  • Patty

    This is far deeper than a chicken nugget or strip or even a sandwich. It goes to heart of American Values in America. Christian from all walks of life and of all colors do oppose Gay Marriage. The value of a traditional marriage of one man and one woman are these views expressed by many since Obama decided to weigh in his two cents on Social issues.

    Now, of all the things we are going through today why would a president have stepped into this issue. As I see it, Black pastors are very much against gay marriage. They haven’t been placed on a Chopping block like the owner of Chick-fil-a has and we all know why that is, Obama hates capitalism in America. The owner was given an opinion only on his beliefs and that is what is so appalling about this whole matter.

    Opinions are being picked, shamed, scrutinized and this nation was built on freedoms and freedom to express oneself.

    An intelligent discussion and opinions is one thing but to be excoriated one’s personal views that are faith oriented calls for Americans pulling together for one of the most important fights of our life, freedom to believe and freedom to speak our mind.

    Americans will never give up their values and beliefs and this Chick-fil-a matter has proven this will be a Referendum in Nov. and Obama is bringing it to the convention and it could just very well be his demise. Gay Marriage in 5th on the voters mind but now, it could be in the top 2 reasons for real change.

  • Sam Stone

    I just had lunch there for the first time ever. it was PACKED and the manager said he estimates 505 of the patrons were there to support Mr Cathy. The drive thru was around the building and i rode around the building twice before I got a parking space. Good food and wonderful service. I WILL eat there again in the future.

    For every attack there is a counter attack. Those in line aren’t attacking they are expressing their freedom of speech.

    I told the gentleman at the window of Chick-fil-a I support them. He said thank you. It made me so happy not as happy as my vote in November will but happy all the same.

    Now every single person who ate at Chik-fil-A today or bought their merchandise needs to make sure in the next week or two that they are registered to vote and Be THERE on November 6!

    And while a good many of us are rooting for ABO2012, do remember that a vote for anyone other than the Republican nominee is a vote FOR Obama.

  • Sarah

    The more they attack, the more we fight back! Better yet, let’s go on the offensive!

    One question: I found this over at the Chick-fill-A site and wondered if they are backing down somewhat: “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. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”

    It is called tolerance. No one has been denied service or employment at the place. The personal views on gay marriage are those of the owners.

  • Patrick R

    I wish Liberals would stop calling these people “homophobic” or “bigoted”. This is NOT about showing support for bigotry or homophobia, this is about showing support for Chick Fil-A’s FREEDOM OF SPEECH and right to express their opinions, even if you don’t agree with them. Chick Fil-A’s freedom to express themselves is under attack, and they must be supported. This is why I expect to see all these people lined up at the Westboro Baptist Church on Sunday to show their support for their freedom of speech and right to express their views on homosexuality. Certainly the Westboro Baptist Church is under attack for expressing their views on homosexuality, and they need your help! See you Sunday!

    Obama’s Division of Black Community Could Hurt Him In November

    […]Pew research center conducted a poll in April on the issue and found that 49% of African-Americans opposed same-sex marriage while only 39% supported it. The research center also found that 47% of whites supported gay marriage with the rest in opposition.

    Black pastors who preach for same-sex marriage face the reality that they could lose large numbers of their congregation. Take Chicago-based minister Bishop Carlton Pearson for example: he recently stated that he lost 6,000 members of his church when he began preaching that lesbians and gays were accepted by God.

    The president was clear that he supported same-sex marriage, but the issue has been very polarizing in the black community to say the least, and could prove to be a pinnacle issue in dividing voters.

    Since Chick Fil-A is closed on Sunday, I expect to see all of you at the Westboro Baptist Church showing your support for them! After all, this is not about Chick Fil-A’s views on homosexuality, it is about their right to Free Speech and the fact that they are being attacked for expressing their views on homosexuality.

    Certainly, the Westboro Baptist Church is being attacked for expressing their views on homosexuality much more than Chick Fil-A is being attacked, so we must all line up to support the Westboro Baptist’s Church’s Constitutional right to picket at soldiers’ funerals with signs that say “Thank God for IEDs”!

    @Patrick R. – there is a HUGE difference between Chik-fil-A being “banned in Boston” because the founder stated in an interview that he supports traditional marriage and the activities of the Westboro Baptist Church.

    As much as any of us don’t LIKE what Westboro does, notice that nobody tries to stop them, other than to make a human and motorcycle shield around the funeral services to screen them from the family.

  • Robodog7

    Here in Fairfax, Virginia, the line was backing up traffic on rt.50 to get to the Drive-thru at 11:00 am. and people were parking in the shopping center across the street and walking over. It only took about 20 minutes to get through the drive thru and I was surprised that they handled the High volume so well. I got two Chicken sandwiches and two Peach shakes and boy was it good. I told the young lady at the window “Happy Chic-fil-A day” and she laughed and said thank you. This is a very well run company that should be supported and not ridiculed by Al-Gayda.

They have never once been shut down, though people have tried to keep them from destroying the funeral services held by grieving families.

    Dear troll,

    If all that Westboro did was to preach their lunacy from the pulpits, I would allow them that. Their choice. Once they start protesting funerals, they cross an entirely different line. I don’t go to other people’s churches and interrupt their functions to proclaim my beliefs. That’s not freedom of speech; that’s being a d*ck.

  • Patrick R

    Actually Abelard, that absolutely IS freedom of speech. The Constitution absolutely guarantees us the right to “be a dick”, and that right is definitely under attack.

    Westoboro says absolutely nothing but things about HOMOSEXUALS..

    not only are numerous homosexuals
    served at CFA, but WORK at a CFA..

    no HOMOSEXUALS served or to be found anywhere near WBC.

    It’s funny to watch a bunch of people who blindly share the same opinion freak out when they come across someone with an opinion that is not the same as theirs. Someone disagreeing with your opinion does not make them a “troll”, it just makes you a spoiled child who is always used to getting your own way and not having anyone disagree with you.

  • Merry

    Our office had someone go and get Chick Fil A for about 20 people today here in Kansas City, and the lines were huge ~~ many of us have very different views on gay marriage, this was about the First Amendment Right to free speech. We all had a choice to buy or not to buy from Chick Fil A as we should have that choice. I was glad to hear that so many of my gay friends bought Chick Fil A today in support of the First Amendment. We are all tired of anyone in the government telling us what to think, do or buy, it’s not up to them as long as we are free Americans standing up for what we believe in.

  • Patrick R

    I’m just going to assume that all the people who waited in line for 2 hours for a chicken sandwich today because some people are trying to block something from opening based on the owner’s religious beliefs all went down to lower Manhattan last year to show their support for that Muslim Community Center near Ground Zero.

    Patrick: WBC advocates death to militarysoldiers who serve, because the military allows gays.
    They interrupt peaceful solemn funeral services for no reason and people with common sense( you are not one of them) also stand up and exercise the right to protest these idiots who are protesting. CFA ceo simply answered a question about traditional marriage and his support for it. He does not discriminate against anyone at his stores, he doesnt call for the death of gays. The fact you cant see the difference makes you a moron…who has the right to be one.

    CFA is going to rake in 10 times their normal profits so they have lots more money the owner can donate to conservative causes. It has also rejuvenated the conservative community like nothing since the TEA Party kick off.

    Think about it… People who are against the liberals forcing their views are there to support

    1. Freedom of speech / expression
    2. Freedom of religion and religious beliefs
    3. Government interference, overstepping of bounds, talking away constitutional rights and forcing us to buy products we dont want
    4. Wasteful, overbearing government.

    These people who had no real way to give input their opinion to the Supreme court telling us Obamacare was legal, state laws we pass are illegal, illegal aliens are legal, states being sued by the federal government, businesses being shut down, taxpayer dollars being wasted.

    These people are all waiting in lines for hours talking politely about the rights and common sense being revoked and stomped on…. These people are voting with there presense, money and time.

    They will also vote in Nov.

    Patrick, no one ever said Muslims had no right to build their mosque (and it is a mosque, sir, so don’t get too warm and fuzzy over the re-branding of it as a “community center”). The fact that a lot of Americans are not interested in going to bat to defend the GZ mosque should come as no surprise to any thinking person using a grain of common sense since it would seem a poor choice of place to focus one’s time and energy since we, and all of the west, are under attack from the tenet of Islam. It’s really not complicated.

  • Patrick R

    I agree with you Bigkahuna, but all of the four things you listed also apply to The Westboro Baptist Church and the Islamic Community Center in lower Manhattan.

    We don’t get to pick and choose who we think Freedom of Speech/Freedom of Expression/Freedom of Religion should apply to based on our own personal opinions of them.

    I absolutely do NOT support the views of the Westboro Baptist Church, but I absolutely support their right to hold and express them without government interference. I support their right to exist, even though I don’t agree with their opinions. But I’m definitely not going to wait in line for 2 hours to show my support for them

  • Patrick R

    Sorry bg, you have totally lost me. Perhaps you could just list the facts I missed, instead of linking me to random people’s opinions that were left as comments to a story on the internet?

  • Patrick R

    Sarah #122, I apologize but either you are delusional or totally misinformed. Because many many many more people tried to say that the Mosque (I’ll call it a ‘Mosque’, because it doesn’t matter) did not have a right to exist. Thousands of people protested. Politicians tried to block it.

    And, I’m sorry, but I disagree with you. Defending the Freedom of Speech and the Freedom of Religion is absolutely NOT a poor choice of to focus one’s time and energy.

    Isn’t that exactly what you people are doing by supporting Chick Fil-A? Or is it only worth defending someone’s freedom of speech if you happen to agree with it?

  • blahblahblah

    Well, took me about 25 minutes, but got my Sandwich, Waffle Fries and Shake…

    Was pretty insane really. Went to one just outside Long Beach, California – home of a gigantic gay population, and not an area known to vote R. People were literally lined up in both the Right and Left turn lanes (on a busy street, it was kind of chaotic really) to get into the business. Beyond that, people on foot were lined up out the door, around the corner and all the way to the street after having to park across the street to even find a spot. At each crossing corner, the next wave of people piled up waiting for the light to turn. Were so many people that one of the managers had to come out and direct the cars of those people lucky enough to find parking spots in the lot – spots that were near impossible to turn in and out of because of the abundance of cares in the lot.

    While I was in line there was not only a Firetruck in the lot with the crew inside, but a police car pulled up to get lunch as well. Patrons also, of course, included the liberal stereotype of “conservatives’ (you know, white families ~ or, what you would expect to see anytime you go just short of anywhere) but also an absolute TON of minorities from absolutely all walks of life; from young teens to working class to elderly. And wow was everyone friendly, smiling and helping eachother, waving and chatting. It felt a little like a work picnic or something, except no one knew anyone and we were instead all there solely to support a Business against Liberal hate.

    Plus, not a single protestor. There was one man on a bike who looked exactly like the typical Hollywood portrayal of a 60s burnout, and he was the only person I even considered as possibly there to protest. But nope, he locked up his bike on a tree and walked to the back of the line with everyone else, huge smile on his face.

    Just EPIC Liberal fail. Chick-Fil-A is now more popular then ever, from coast to coast, in even the most Liberal of cities. Meanwhile many Democrats have shown themselves to be the totalitarian “you can only think what we say you can think” control freaks we Conservatives have always recognized them as. I even have family members who pretty much walk the line on most issues who have voiced extreme disgust at Democrats over this, while going out of their way to find a Chick-Fil-A to support themselves.

    Oh, and the Drive-Thru Starbucks right next door, whose line you can view the entire time you wait for your food? Well, it was empty the entire time I was there. I might have seen 3 or 4 cars over those 20-25 minutes I stared at its line. Employees in Chick-Fil-A though, who were unbelievably overworked, were as happy and polite as ever, getting people thru the line much faster then I would have thought possible.

    Right Sara, but you see the difference is that you guys are claiming that you are waiting in line for Chick Fil-A in order to show support for the Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of interference from the government, etc.

    And, that’s fine if you do that. But where your point fails is that I am not going out and picking and choosing whose “freedom of speech” I want to defend based on what whether I personally agree with them. That would make me a hypocrite.

    I just wish you guys would be honest about why you are waiting 2 hours for a chicken sandwich. If it’s because you think homosexuality is disgusting and wrong, that’s fine. Really. It’s absolutely your right to think that way and shop at a certain place to demonstrate it. But, if it was really about “freedom of speech” and “freedom of religion” like you claim, you wouldn’t support one institutions freedom of speech/religion and not another’s.

    Goodnight everyone. Remember, don’t be so terrified and angry over someone whose opinion happens to differ from yours. Surrounding yourselves with people who think exactly like you, and hanging out on an internet message board where you can all agree with one another and pat each other on the back is, frankly, pretty cowardly and lazy. There is a big world out there, with many different opinions. Opening yourself up to and discussing views with people that don’t happen to think exactly like you do, instead of just lazily trying to insult them, is not as scary as you think.

    “I just wish you guys would be honest about why you are waiting 2 hours for a chicken sandwich.” ~ Patrick R

    People are lining up outside Chick-Fil-A restaurants all over the Country in response to the HATE delivered by the Left; nothing more, nothing less.

    Liberals everywhere instantly jumped up screaming bloody murder because someone dared have an opinion (an opinion shared by most in the US, ironically), going as far as to try to figure out ways to have Government shut them down because they had an opinion which was shared by this and every President before him up until what, about 4 weeks ago when the worst one yet supposedly “evolved” in a desperate attempt to get enthusiasm and money from his base.

    That flat-out, illogical HATE displayed by the Left was met with friendly, overwhelming support for the business the HATE was directed towards.

    That’s why I waited in line once today already, and will probably go back for dinner as well.

    Today, people from all walks of life from all over the US stood up and said “HATE us all if you like” to the bigots on the Left who are apparently too clueless to see the irony in the HATE they express and totalitarian mindstate they are calling for.

    the gay loving mayor of boston doesn’t want chic-fil-a in his town. he just okayed a 1.8 million dollar plot of land to build a mosque on, one of the members of the board of the mosque expressed the opinion that homosexuality is a crime and all homosexuals should be murdered. i guess if you don’t think gays should marry its bad but if you want to murder them its okay.

    i wonder when the gays are going to smarten up, they are being used by the democratic party big time.

    Wow, what a thread!

    Some thoughts:

    People who condemn Chick-fil-A as “bigoted”, or “homophobic” are cowards.

    Chick-fil-A has openly gay employees, probably even managers and franchise owners, and has no problem serving excellent grub to “those people.”

    Iran, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, “The West Bank”, “The Gaza Strip”, Dearborn, MI, Northern VA, and a whole lot of of other Muslim-infested areas have a tendency to HANG HOMOSEXUALS FROM CRANES.

    These nations hang homosexuals, stone-to-death homosexuals, blow up homosexuals, ON A WEEKLY BASIS, and all according to their sick, murderous, intolerant, Satanic religion….

    ….and Chick-fil-A is the target of the Left. Because the owners don’t think a man should be married to a man.

    While Islam allows a little girl to be “married” — even “temporarily, like for one night” — to a little boy or girl. While Islam preaches that all non-Muslim women (and girls) are a free-for-all and RAPE THEM AT WILL. While the common feature in Islam is the complete subjugation of all females, including generous allowances for murdering your wife, your daughter, your cousin, your sister, or even your mother. While the other common Islamic feature is marrying your five-year-old daughter off to her cousin, who then owns her.

    FU&KING WOW, DUDE. Chick-fil-A is the Left’s target.

    I dont know #184. I cannot even begin to fathom giving the tiniest crap about what someone else is attracted to, that I would take 2 hours out of my day to protest it. But again, I’m comfortable with my sexuality. There is absolutely no reason why what two consenting adults choose to do with each other would bother or affect me in any way whatsoever.

    But, keep protesting if it makes you feel better about something

  • Bob Bablaw

    Haha. Look at all the obese clingers lined up to voluntarily do damage to their bodies because they think some imaginary fairy tale they believe in says they should. Too funny!

  • RealMan

    #184, I bet we mostly agree on this. For instance, I don’t think the government should restrict something from opening based on their religious views. Agreed?

  • RealMan

    I was addressing #185 in the above comment, not #184. This numbering system is confusing.

    Sometimes politicians tap into their “hot air reserves” when they best remain quiet and let the market place fulfill the desires of the average American citizens.

  • Biblical Scholar

    Good work brave Patriots! It’s is important to defend traditional marriage as defined in the bible. Marriage is a religious institution and liberals want to change its definition and must be stopped!

    Genesis 4:19 says:
    Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah.

    Genesis 28:6-9 says:
    Now Esau learned that Isaac had blessed Jacob and had sent him to Paddan Aram to
    take a wife from there, and that when he blessed him he commanded him, “Do not
    marry a Canaanite woman,” and that Jacob had obeyed his father and mother and
    had gone to Paddan Aram. Esau then realized how displeasing the Canaanite
    women were to his father Isaac; so he went to Ishmael and married Mahalath,
    the sister of Nebaioth and daughter of Ishmael son of Abraham, in addition to
    the wives he already had.

    Exodus 6:20 says:
    Amram married his father’s sister Jochebed, who bore him Aaron and Moses. Amram lived 137 years.

    Exodus 22:16 says:
    If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and sleeps with her,
    he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife.

    Deuteronomy 24:1-4 says:
    If a man marries a woman who becomes displeasing to him because he finds
    something indecent about her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, gives
    it to her and sends her from his house, and if after she leaves his house she
    becomes the wife of another man, and her second husband dislikes her and
    writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his
    house, or if he dies, then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed
    to marry her again after she has been defiled. That would be detestable in the
    eyes of the LORD. Do not bring sin upon the land the LORD your God is giving you
    as an inheritance.

    Deuteronomy 22:13-20 says:
    If a man takes a wife and, after lying with her, dislikes her and slanders
    her and gives her a bad name, saying, “I married this woman, but when I
    approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity,” then the girl’s father
    and mother shall bring proof that she was a virgin to the town elders at the
    gate. The girl’s father will say to the elders, “I gave my daughter in marriage
    to this man, but he dislikes her. Now he has slandered her and said, ‘I did not
    find your daughter to be a virgin.’ But here is the proof of my daughter’s
    virginity.” Then her parents shall display the cloth before the elders of the
    town, and the elders shall take the man and punish him. They shall fine him a
    hundred shekels of silver and give them to the girl’s father, because this man
    has given an Israelite virgin a bad name. She shall continue to be his wife; he
    must not divorce her as long as he lives.

    If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl’s virginity can be
    found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men
    of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel
    by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house.

    #191, I totally agree with you Don. I personally choose not to eat at Chick Fil A because I personally do not agree with their position and the causes they support financially. But, as of now, you are the only person who knows that. I don’t make a big deal out of it, I just choose to eat somewhere else. But I certainly do not believe that the government should restrict a business from opening based on the owner’s religious beliefs. For me, it would be great if people stopped spending money at Chick Fil A because they made the personal choice to do so, not because the government made them.

    Politicians are often their own worst enemies. More than anyone, I am angry at the couple of politicians who seemed to suggest they may try to restrict Chick Fil A from opening in their area. That instantly changed this from a gay rights issue to a freedom of speech issue, and galvanized a lot of people, and had the opposite affect of what they were hoping for. Just dumb.

    I will say, though, that I truly believe that a lot of those people who showed up to wait in line today are not being honest about why they are doing it. They might not even being honest with themselves. I think for at least some of them, this is about homosexuality, even if they wont admit it, and are hiding behind the guise of “protecting freedom of speech”. If they were truly concerned about freedom of speech and freedom of religion and against the government restricting things based on religious beliefs, they would have been supporting the Ground Zero Mosque, when in reality, I bet you many of them strongly opposed it. I fully support the freedom of speech, religion, expression, etc., but I am smart enough to realize that means I don’t get to pick and choose whose freedoms I defend based on what I personally believe in. Even people I disagree with deserve to have their rights defended

  • lesann

    I was in Schaumburg Il tonight and hoped to eat at Chick fa la…but the cars were a block deep. YEAH YEAH YEAH! My kids were too hungry to wait. Sorry…but am soooo happy to see people taking a stand against this liberal oppression. Rahm….you are ridiculous…Illinois is the worse in the country on so many levels…and its because of CHICAGO and its politics….liberal ran forever ran right into the dark hole of near bankruptcy for the state.
    Guess where Obama came from…this great liberal state…..
    Ya know… the Mayor Rahm is right….this business family man, with his religious beliefs, who started and grew a business from the ground up, like a true American and as a result created jobs and contributes to the health of our economy….. doesnt match the Chicago values of political ecorruption, welfare handouts, stealing money from hard working people through over taxation… pay for it all. A place where porn shops, union heads receiving favortism for votes , drug gangs run the streets, and religions leaders who embrace anti semitism are welcomed with opened arms your right Rahm….this man’s values certainly do not match Chicago values…thank GOD!

    Hey Rahm…does Rev Wright stand for Chicago values ?????? GD America… It would seem today the chickens came home to roost and be eaten !

  • The local NBC and CBS outlets both featured the story on the Chick-Fil-A restaurants being mobbed. (Don’t know about the ABC outlet — couldn’t see their coverage because of time conflicts.) Lots of good coverage.

    Go Chick-Fil-A

  • Just got home from the Arnold, MO Chick-fil-A and WOW what a fantastic night! We drove 40 miles each way. Got there around 6:45 pm, the double line of cars wrapped clear around and through the strip mall area. Parked our car about 1/2 a block away (closest spot) and walked over to get in line. We stood in line for two hours, about an hour outside, (and the company of people were fantastic!!) and then an hour inside the building, where the line zig zagged and wrapped around multiple times. Got up to the counter and ordered our dinner at 9pm, sat down to eat and MAN ‘O’ MAN was that food YUMMY!!! The restaurant was unbelievably CLEAN and the staff wonderfully KIND. I could not of been more blessed to be in the presence of such loving, patriotic, nice people. One man, in his 40’s had on a shirt that read: “CHANGE… I USED TO BE AN EMPLOYER, NOW I’M LUCK TO BE AN EMPLOYEE… WANT ANY FRIES WITH THAT?” There was random patriotic singing while waiting in line, smiles from ear to ear on everyone, seriously, EVERYONE. I am so proud to be an American, and the chicken was a bonus. 😀

    It just goes to show that Americans still cherish their CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.
    Obama and democrat comrades have pushed thier anti First Amendment & anti Christian garbage too far. Isn’t it interesting that democrats forgot that it was their messiah Obama who up until a few months ago was opposed to gay marriage. Now, when Obama is afraid he won’t get re-elected, all of a sudden he’s all for gay marriage. So go have a gay kiss in at the White House.

    This is Way more than just about Gay Rights, Gay Marriage, or Traditional Marriage. It’s been Push, Push, Push by the Liberals, and government, for the past 40 years. Pick Any subject that has been the “bedrock” of this Nation from its founding, and the Liberals want to “Hope and Change” it. Liberals yell and scream, sneer and demean Anybody and Everybody that disagrees with them. I’m hoping come November 6th we’ll see the same number of people in line at each and every voting booth. A backlash by the “silent majority” needs to happen This Year.

    I am sick and tired of being pushed around and seeing our freedoms and religious liberties attacked at every turn. I am tired of immoral perversions being promoted and protected and the truth being trashed. I am tired of the media continually being biased.

    And the most amazing part, people waiting were polite as were the counter help who were courteous too. . .

    And most folks there for the same reason, to show the majority is still the MAJORITY!

    Like the big TEA party gathering on the Mall in DC during 2009, people who love our country tend to be polite and respectful. . . and orderly too.

    Not like the OWS crowd of losers!

  • Guy

    Hi I believe this is mainly about the First Amendment, are we getting into Thought Policy ?
    Instead of that guy asking free water and accusing of hate, I would have like the gay liders to step up and support the First Amendment first, they might add we hope that one day all Americans will support gay marriage and leave it there. There is no discrimination in Chick filet
    Simply they think differently .Period.
    Too much to ask, may be I am an idealist but changing subjects when Rommey talked to a huge Afro American group ( i forgot their name ) I thought he was caring, honest and he really hopesd to touch their hearts saying I shall be the President of all Americans, but the Democrat pundits jumped on him saying he was not respecting them, give me a break, ! They said that he was not talking to the people there but to his base….I believe this is so unfair, Rommey spoke of vouchers for education and much more, but as in the Chick Fillet affair the real hate for me is in those that forget the blessings of the FirstbAmendment and in those that twisted words like they did in Rommey case.

    Midlanders who didn’t think Chick-fil-A could become anymore crowded than it already is were proved wrong today. Supporters from around the Permian Basin showed up in droves at both the Chick-fil-A on Loop 250 and the restaurant in Midland Park Mall. Some waited in the drive-thru line for more than an hour, while others stood in a line* that stretched outside and around a portion of the building so they could place an order. “I’d stay here for four hours if I had to,” said Maryann Harless, who had been sitting in the drive-thru for about an hour. “I…

    Went to my local Scottsdale Chick-fil-A about 2:30 yesterday. It was quite crowded, both the drive-up, as well as the inside. Numerous crew members were hustling their little fannies off and doing a superb job. I made a comment to a manager that I was thrilled to see such a turnout, to which he smiled and thanked me for coming in. A stream of people just kept coming, and I reveled in the glory of solidarity. The laughable thing was, directly across the street, in clear vision, is a Whole Foods Market. I have to wonder…from their vantage point, were their birkenstocked filled gnarly toenails curling, hhmmmmm?? …………..Loved it!!

    This is a buzz word that libs and proggies love to throw around: diversity. I’ve ranted about it for years. Liberals value “diversity” because they like to look at people as members of groups – you are black, you are a lesbian, you are rich, you are handicapped. To a liberal, your individual character is not valued as much as what group you happen to be a part of. But here’s the catch …liberals claim that they love “diversity,” except if you are a member of a group with which they do not agree or does not adhere to their progressive set of values.

    We are diverse, a variety of different opinions, faiths, cultures, we all realize this and we all try to be accepting of one another’s views and beliefs.

    Now, for those who don’t like that eat a chicken sandwich and call us in the morning. If that doesn’t work out too well, read the Constitution of the U.S.

  • Twan St. Louis

    What’s even better is that on the “kiss-in” you JUST KNOW that these peopel are going to be hungry and get something to eat. So they will support the very company they are protesting about and not even be smart enought to realize they are doing it!

    This may never be read. We move so fast in the news these days but this is part of an article that rang true.


    The Power of Positive Protest

    The crowd was a prime example of a mixture of, as we say in the south, spontaneous and deliberate “pandelirum.” I scanned the mass of people of all races, young and old, with babies and toddlers. The help was working overtime, with sweat on their brows, waiting on thousands more than they usually wait on during regular days, yet everything went smoothly. The air conditioning was working full blast, cooling all patrons, meals were served quickly and expediently, and the restaurant was spotless in spite of the huge crowd.

    “As an American citizen I strongly object to the unlawful efforts of elected officials who are calling for censorship and government blockades to keep Chick-Fil-A from doing business in their respective cities. Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s comments are protected under the authority of our Constitution, and as such must be respected – not threatened, and censored by government officials.” (The Liberty News Report)

    My husband and I had just visited a large chain store nearby – people were sweltering inside because their air conditioning had been cut off remotely from New Jersey in order to save electricity and money – a prime example of the madness of Smart Meters and UN Agenda 21. I was glad Chick-fil-A did not have Smart Meters and the A/C was running full blast.

    I was thinking of the 650 million Indians who are without power at the moment because their government bought into the green environmentalist agenda that coal is bad and had reduced so much their coal production that they are unable to produce and store enough electricity for the increased demand.

    As I left the restaurant, I was satisfied that, from my vantage point, the Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was a great success. I stood up for freedom of speech in America and ate a delicious chicken sandwich with waffle fries with thousands of other people in my neighborhood that came out to support free speech and their fellow Americans.

    Christians, Cities, Chickens, Cynics, and Idiots

    {,,,,,,,,}America’s values system is so muddled there are no longer any clear markers of right and wrong. There are no absolutes, anymore, for Americans, as a whole. Only the few who cling to their religion seem well-rooted and actually seem to know what they are doing and where they are headed.

    We have done to the Ten Commandments what so many want to do with the US Constitution by proclaiming that it is a living, breathing, document. Do you really think they would hesitate gutting the constitution if they have not a single iota of respect for the law of man’s Creator? REALLY?

    If America has a single religion to which the majority of its citizens subscribe, it would have to be our popular or “pop” culture—and it is rotten to the core.

    The filth pouring from our movie houses, our TV’s, the Internet, even the games we play, are equal to, or exceed, the horror of anything ever seen in the Roman Colosseum.

    There is a never-ending sewer of hedonism emptying into our homes 24-7. The endless flow of profane exhibitions of blood and gore have desensitized Americans and blunted our ability to feel guilt at our own inhumanity to our fellow man. We have become a nation of psychopaths devoid of conscience and lacking feeling or empathy for our neighbors. There is no cure for the psychopath.

    Today, packs of wild animals, purportedly human, wander the streets of our once great cities smashing, killing, terrorizing, and reveling in the blood spilled as a result of their animalistic behavior. (Truth be told, animals rarely kill for sport.)

    Our nation is hurtling toward self immolation—and we cannot decipher the cause? Surely, you jest!

    The ChickFilA issue provided a great teachable moment at our dinner table last night. Our children, 14 and 16 years old, had the impression that the big deal had to do with intolerence of gays by the founder of CFA. We filled them in on the comments by the big city mayors and how they were trying to keep the restaurant out of their cities simply because of the religious beliefs of the business owner, and they then understood that it’s a freedom of speach/first ammendment issue.

    I drove the point home by equating this issue to our own lives. We are Tea Partiers, have had many meeting in our home, organized rallies, etc. and over this past 4th of July, I put a Don’t Tread on Me flag on our boat. That flag is still on our boat, but we are forever worried that someone will vandalize our boat as it sits at the dock at our home in the Pocono mountains. My wife and I “discuss” this flag (of course she wants it removed), and the kids truly see how freedom of speech, indeed, family harmony, can be affected by a tyrannical government and those that support it.

    I will continue to fly my flag, and I dare them to vandalize my boat…they will have created two of the fiercest Tea Party Patriots ever should they do so. Take away their MTV, but don’t stop my kids from tubing and water skiing on Lake Wallenpaupack!
