Gay rights activists to hold kiss protests at Chick-fil-A restaurants
cnn ^ | 8/2/2012 | staff

Posted on 08/02/2012 11:53:58 AM PDT by tobyhill

Gay rights activists are planning to hold on Friday a "national same-sex kiss day at Chick-fil-A," the restaurant chain whose president's opposition to same-sex marriage sparked a media frenzy.

"Let's show Chick-fil-A thanks for their support of Love, Equality, and the Real Definition of Marriage!" organizers posted on their Facebook page.

Same-sex couples are expected to arrive at restaurants across the country and kiss in protest, then post video or photos of the event on social media.

But on Wednesday, throngs of others weighed in on the Chick-fil-A debate, buying chicken sandwiches at stores to show their support of the chain.

They report on CFA appreciation day after-the-fact ... because it was too big to ignore.

They advertise for Gay Make-out Day before hand ... for fear it will be too insigificant to notice.

Not really if you want to see just how repulsive their behavior in public is look at Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco I suspect that in SF the queers will be doing more than kissing.

It’s all but guaranteed that at some of these place it will go well beyond kissing.

It will be interesting to see what kind of support this idiotic ploy gets. How will it affect sales? Could be a classic case of good vs bad marketing, and the public voting with their dollars and “presence.”

All the local Taxi companies should be on pre -alert......God may choose to deal with these people the same way HE did with the Sodomites in the days of Lot.

“Lot’s two visitors who were angels struck the men of the city of Sodom with blindness. they had come to Lot’s house and asked, “ Where are the men who came to you tonight ? bring them out that we may know them carnally”...But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness. Genesis 19:5,10,11 “

Won't work. The FACE act (Federal Access to Clinic Entrances) wouldn't apply to a chicken joint. The law is also written narrowly to make sure that labor unions wouldn't get caught in it.

They will do what the left always do. They will get a couple pictures and send them to hundreds of their MSM pals and make it seem like it was a big event.

Chick-fil-A could charge a $6 cover to get in and with that cover get a free sandwich, small fries and small drink.

Most of the leftist idiots prefer the $1 menu at McDonalds anyway.

Any FReepers who live conveniently near a Chick-fil-A should go over during one of the major meal times and take some pictures. Then we can post them compared to the Appreciation Day pictures and show the world how insignificant these people actually are.

LOL! I saw that one earlier, and I'm curious.

Has the jockstrap that was so brave as to bully a barely-grown girl from the safety of his car reared his nasty head, or is he still in hiding?

What if they came, and nobody cared? They are trying to be obnoxious to get a rise out of Christians. If straights were to cause a scene by kissing and making out I would expect management to ask them to leave. It shouldn’t make any difference if they are gay or straight, if they are behaving disrespectfully, it shouldn’t be allowed to continue. I say, ignore them, don’t give them the attitude they are trying to draw out of you so they can put it on youtube and say “see how hateful these rightwing dingbat Christains are??” This would be a good time to go to Chick-fil-A and order a meal and just turn away from anything that might be offensive. Pray, pray, pray.

After Lot offered to let the men of Sodom rape his virgin daughters “who had not known men”.

Lot was a disgusting coward.

According to the constitution these creeps have the right to kiss anywhere they want. But an owner of a private business still has the right to ask them to leave and to not serve them.

A funny thing for Chic F Lay to do would be to close and post signs saying “Due to the record setting day we had yesterday, and in appreciation of the hard work done by our employees, we are allowing them the day off. If you want to stand in front of the closed store and kiss, go ahead.”

The American public needs a good look at these people. I hope they turn out by the tens of thousands, and media coverage goes nation wide. If this turns out to be anything like CSPANs coverage of the first gay pride parade in DC, it will be a total disaster for the "cause." Kiss on, Butch...

Given the tiny fragment of the population they are, it will be a major challenge just to get ONE “couple” into each restaurant.

Nahhhh, the funny thing to do, as I mentioned in another thread, is to show up with judges scoring flip cards and rate the kisses. On technique and personal appearance.

And Now I’m getting hammered for this by my friends.

I just informed them they and the real “minority of hatuhs” have overplayed their hand and all they did was send more money to Chick Fil A than they they otherwise might have earned.

“Your position is clearly demonstrated to be in the minority and you are the real haters, using synthetic arguments and the law to find normalization from the rest of us”.

Funny, I don’t even care if you are gay or hooked up with someone but, just as I find it gross to see a man and a woman acting like sexual oafs in public I find it even more gross to see two guys pushing their sexuality on me.

I mean FK! Is your identity and personage more than a couple of minutes in bed? Or are you some cheapened commodity?

Do you want to be recognized for your accomplishments? Your wit? Just plain who you are?

Or is your identity some cheap knock off sex toy to be thrown at everybody?

Get over yourself. I am not going to ever be for gay marriage as it doesn’t exist except to find relevance on one dimension and I’d like to think of people as more than objectified.

You’re doing it to yourself.

I saw on the internet a clip of Sheep Smith saying yesterday was "intolerance day".

This begs the question: what is it that Chick fil A is not tolerating. What was I not tolerating yesterday when I ate my delicious Deluxe Spicy Chicken Sandwich with Chick fil A Sauce? (Spicy crisp fried chicken, romaine lettuce, tomato, provalone cheese, pickles and sauce (mainly BBQ sauce with about 25 other ingredients)

I hate it when I'm in a fast food restaurant and married couples all around me are engaging in physical displays of affection.

The same sex couples would do more for their cause by putting chicken in their mouths instead of each other's tongues.

That is unless their tongues were braised beef tongue thinly sliced, served on rye bread with swiss cheese, coleslaw and Russian dressing.

Since their behaviour is identical to that of the average two-year-old throwing a tantrum, we should respond the same way- ignore them until they’re tired of it.

Using it against pro-lifers got shot down 2 or 3 times by the Supreme Court 9-0. It was meant as a tool against organized crime.

Senator Anne Cools, a former Liberal, made the same point when same-sex marriage was being debated in Canada.

I suspect it will be a big yawn. The gays think the sight of 2 guys kissing is SHOCKING to Christians and other right thinking people. That is incorrect. We find it mildly revolting but that is about it.

I am sure some will take it too far and I hope the Chik-Fil-A managers are quick to call law enforcement to enforce the public lewdness laws.

“Have them arrested.”

That’s what they want, just like the occupoopers. The gays want to depict conservatives as evil corporate security guards and local police using excessive force removing these noble gay civil rights ‘victims’. The Leftist media is waiting to spin the news and oblige their gay friends in any way possible.
The best thing to do is to sit back and record their disgusting and petulant behavior.
