Chick-fil-A announced Thursday morning that supporters who flocked to the restaurant for "Appreciation Day" propelled the company to a "record-setting day."
The statement confirmed anecdotal claims that the long lines seen at Chick-fil-A's across the country Wednesday fueled unprecedented sales. The turnout came after CEO Dan Cathy came under fire in some circles for his opposition to same-sex marriage.
"We are very grateful and humbled by the incredible turnout of loyal Chick-fil-A customers on August 1 at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country. We congratulate local Chick-fil-A Owner/Operators and their team members for striving to serve each and every customer with genuine hospitality," the company said in a statement. "While we don't release exact sales numbers, we can confirm reports that it was a record-setting day."

Many local TV and radio stations filmed/covered/mentioned yesterday's record-breaking turnout of Chick-fil-A supporters. Without exception, those pictures showed people having fun, waiting patiently in line, treating other customers and Chick-fil-A employees with cordiality and respect.

Whatever TV stations cover Chick-fil-A restaurants on Friday will see in-your-face provocateurs attempting to call attention to themselves with narcissistic displays of self-love while grossing out employees and other patrons.
Don't think the lessons -- the comparative behaviors of adult conservatives in public vs. the behaviors of psychologically stunted liberals in public -- won't reach especially the independent voters who are weighing which party's local and national candidates they'll be voting for in November.
I’ll go again today.
Anything that irritates a liberal is gooooooooood!
Besides, the chicken is goooooooooood too!
I hope Dan Cathy has the sense and good humor to send two large trays of nuggets to Rahm Emmanuel’s office. With a copy of the Constitution.
Its a mandate! !!
I am going back tomorrow to show my support.
My wife and I set yesterday aside as ourt day to visit Chick-fil-a. We were delighted to see so many people show up to fight back against the liberal propaganda.
The left STILL doesn’t understand the Bill of Rights. Religion aside, Mr. Cathy exercvised his 1st Amendment right and the left wanted to shut him down for it!!??? Than you all for showing the left that the majority of us still believe in and support the Constitution.
Its been a good week. Record turnout for Ted Cruz and CFA. I think this may be the single worst omen I’ve seen so far for Obama in November.
Good people got that fired-up about a persecuted chicken-joint ... they went out, spent money, endured traffic, and waited for hours for the opportunity. Just think what they’d be willing to endure come November.
Somewhere, some liberal is saying to himself ... “I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant, and filled him with resolve.”
Cathy should give the nuggets free of charge to the pervs and do it with a huge smile.
Nothing and I mean NOTHING pisses off these people more then when you smile at them and tell them you think it’s great they have the freedom to express themselves in this wonderful country.
The more you smile at them the deeper becomes their rage.
That would be an Asian Liberal....right?
“Cathy should give the nuggets free of charge to the pervs and do it with a huge smile.”
Only if he serves the nuggets with a “special sauce!”
Another observation, CFA staff.
Few other fast food restaurants can seem to match the alert, well trained, courteous, efficient, folks working the CFA counter. On days when traffic is normal, or yesterday when it was crazy, the folks just looked like the knew what they were about.
If they ever do a burger........
There is one thing that equals or maybe betters that: telling them that God loves them and that you will be praying for them.
“Nothing and I mean NOTHING pisses off these people more then when you smile at them and tell them you think its great they have the freedom to express themselves in this wonderful country.”
Actually, I saw one video of where a Chick-Fil-A manager walked out to the homosexual protesters and smiled at them and gave them bottles of water and some snacks. No debating, no arguing, just love. Now that just shows how Jesus would want us to treat them. Powerful witness!
