It seems the homofascists don’t know when it’s time to go home. Mommy and daddy need to come get their kids.

So, these idiots are protesting the CEO's personal beliefs? The guy was asked a question and he answered it.

Did Chick-fil-A every discriminate against gays? Did they ever deny service to gays?

Then WTF is their problem?

The culture war is not going to be won or lost at Chick-fil-A, but this is one skirmish I hate to lose. I can't vote to oust our Marxist leader until November, and I can't do much about the Occupy Wall Street bums, but I sure can Eat More Chicken!

"Martin has said before that a person can be cited or arrested for public disturbance for offensive language and or actions in a public location."

Knowing the composition of this crowd, I would suspect some vulgar reference to "pee pee" or "poo poo".

Yep, they just don’t get that concept to get yourself out of a hole, stop digging. But then again, it goes right along with the Obama plan of spending our way out of debt. Further proof that Liberalism and/or Progressiveism are mental diseases.

Tyler, TX?????!!!!! Seriously? That’s a “smaller” East, TX community about 2 hours east of Dallas. I’m surprised that the “protest” got as far as it did without the Locals handling it on their own.

Puppage, their problem is that they are queer. Queer people do queer things...things you and I would not do.

It just says that the sign was offensive. It could have been a peta fruitcake protesting the treatment of chickens.

I stand corrected. I went to the tylerpaper.com site and saw that it was just a troop of rump rangers out for some attention.

There are even a rather few idiots in TX. Not many . . . but enough to elect several idiot House members.

According to a guy at the link, it said (quoting him), “(4 letter word for male genitalia) tastes good.” Given the context, I’m going to assume that starts with a C and not a D.

Well, I was thinking abaout how they like to call attention to their perversions with signs and hateful activities...but what you said as well.
I feel sorry for them, actually. It has to be a difficult lifestyle and dangerous and I am sure they feel generally rejected. So like bad children who want to see if you love them, no matter what, they act up. It does not help at all when they do that.

Yeah—that’s where the big university is.

I don’t live in Austin, I live in Lakeway, which is a very conservative small city just north of Austin.

LOL.... Shhhhhhh, we really want everyone to think just that.

The 10, seems to have been the extent of the queer-off following Appreciation Day hours in lines at all 3 CFA’s. Just goes to show how prevalent the homos are (not).
