You may be on to something. I always suspected that Shep may be a gay blade.

PS: Are you related to Sarah Baccarruda? ;-)

Probably about as much as the mass gatherings of pro lifers over the years. O could comment however that this is an instance of the private sector doing just fine.

WOW. Is the left-wing commie media covering this ?


Of course.
The story will lead of the 11PM news.
You know they will ‘find’ (or set up) a couple of people with a bedraggled sign, a couple of ‘do-funnys’ kissing and report on the ‘large counter protest’ of the ‘light turn out’.

According to R Limbaugh, some Wendys are sporting signs of support for CFA....

Very interesting turn of events...

There was time when I could care less about these freaks... Until they started getting in everyone face, making demands etc...I have reached a point where I really dislike these queers...They're so easily offended and leftist...I don't even want to near them or breath the same air as these deviates.

All these queers and leftist try to convince all how tolerant they are, but it turns out they are the most intolerant of all.

To hell with these easily offended freaks.

I heard Shep say it was ‘National Intolerance Day’ but I thought I must have heard wrong. I guess I didn’t. Thanks for noticing this.

And I have heard that of my two local CFA’s, one of them ran out of everything a while ago, and the other will do same here momentarily!

Go America!

Same song Second Verse here in North Central Texas!!! Our local Chick-Fil-A had cars wrapped double time on the drive through window side to single at the back, around the front, down the parking lot and onto the adjacent street. I parked in the NEXT parking lot and walked over for inside service.

These guys are awesome! They had a full crew + extras just to keep the orders and food delivery flowing. Ordering didn’t take long, ~10m, but my wait for food was 30m. Not bad considering it was like a bunch of ants had just discovered a tootsie roll laying on the ground!

Inside was packed to the gills, standing room only. Everyone was very friendly, smiling and laughing. It was superb! When someone’s order was up the staff would call out their name and then it was like an echo throughout the room....everyone trying to locate the customer. When food bags met customer, clapping or dancing or fist pumping or ‘SCOOOOOOOOOORE!!!” Great fun!!!!

Food was hot and on point! Will be back with more friends and more family. Rock On C-F-A !!!!

This is a preview of November. The average, hard working American has been awakened, and he/she is PO’d! We want our country back!

I believe the democrats and media propaganda organs simply cannot comprehend what they are seeing. As another poster noted, they cannot now remove the gay marriage plank from their platform. It’s not a plank, it’s just another millstone around their neck.

It’s gonna be a landslide.

Shepard Smith just referred to today as National Intolerance Day on Fox just as they cut to break.

That should have been his last broadcast for FNC.

Me and the Mrs went to the Chic restaurant located in the student union at Kansas State University in Manhattan. Mind you, this restaurant is located in a food court where people had to deal with the hassles of parking on campus. Didn’t matter... There was a steady line of 20 to 30 people the whole time we were there!!!!

Shepard Smith and Anderson cooper both have a lust for other men's butts.

The left celebrated their anal fetishes with them when they came out of their caves.

Gross, isn't it?

Crown America, owners of the West Manchester Mall in York, Pennsylvania barred reporters from speaking with people in line and even from taking notes:

I support private property rights but you don't check First Amendment at their door.

From Fort Oglethorpe GA...
Place was packed, and was told by an employee that the line was in place when they opened at 6 this morning. Drive thru line was around the building, out the street, and around the block :) 4 officers directing traffic and the parking lot next door, a movie theater was more than half full. I havent eaten there in over 4 years, due to a peanut allergy, so my daughter and son-in-law went in and ordered themselves some lunch and got me a chocolate shake and some cookies! talking with people on line, this was more a freedom of speech thing then a Christian reason for the support. I thought that was interesting. Only numb-nut was a creepy guy driving around in a very nasty looking van with “hey u guys It says Liberty and justice for all not y'all or we” I wondered with my kids if we went up and spoke to him if he would offer us candy. We got a picture and that, the driver did not like.

From Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Md.
Chick fil A is one of 20 or so fast food restarants in a large food court.

From 11:30 am until I left at 2pm, the line was constantly approx 120 people long. It blew people away.

This November in Maryland, we have a gay marriage referendum. Today’s outpouring of support for traditional marriage values and/or to show distain to the anti business oppression by elected officials has got to concern Gov O’Malley and other leftist democrats in the Md assembly who pushed the legislation, against great statewide opposition.

Chick-Fil-A has done more for the nation’s economy in ONE day than Obama has done in FOUR years..God Bless Chick-Fil-A..if only there was one close to my house I would go right now, but the closest one to me is in Hollyweird, CA which is still pretty far

I don’t have CFA near me, so I called up one in Jersey and with my Visa ordered $50 of assorted sandwiches delivered to a nearby senior center.

“..talking with people on line, this was more a freedom of speech thing then a Christian reason for the support.”

I think there is broader-based support for that than from either the pro-Christian or anti-same-sex-marriage perspective (although for many folks it’s all 3).
