Posted on 08/03/2012 6:58:21 AM PDT by scottjewell
Two days after backers of Chick-fil-A converged on locations around the nation in support, gay rights backers plan to strike back with a decidedly different kind of activism.
Activists are planning a "National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A" on Friday. As part of the event, couples are encouraged to go one of the chicken restaurant's locations and take a photo or video of themselves kissing.
It remains unclear whether this protest will generate the huge crowds that turned out Wednesday to a show of support for the company's CEO, who ignited a national debate by publicly expressing his opposition to same-sex marriage.
As of Thursday evening, a few people had posted photos on the "Kiss Day" website.
"Let's show Chick-fil-A thanks for their support of Love, Equality, and the Real Definition of Marriage! Invite your friends!" organizers said on its Facebook page.
The move comes after thousands of restaurant supporters came out to back the CEO's stance. In some cases, there were long lines at locations.

they know they don;t have the numbers, but will go to place to place in their group trying to make it look like they’re more.
How sad and pathetic that they do all of this, have parades, say they’re proud, want special rights, play families and all because of how they have their unhealthy unnatural sex.
Yes, the unity here is stunning.
And it is an excellent lesson for political battles; I fully agree.
Thanks. Posted to my fb page.
Have any Gay folks kissed inside a Chick-fil-A restaurant thus far today? Have not seen any photos as of yet. Maybe, we’ll be treated to the Democrat, “dirt bag” Mayors of Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, DC having a kiss fest of there own inside a CFA restaurant? Yep, go to it Mr. Mayors, and....invite Barack Hussein Obama with you!!!
LOL just said the same.
They know they don’t have the numbers to do this all day at every location so yet again the media will follow wiht a camera, the homostapo will go to different locations, run into a place, do their butt kissing what ever and then move on out to another location.
Later the media will report that there were crowds at all locations but fail to report that the homostapo were going to place to place and did not have anywhere the numbers we did.
Hell look at all their coverage before they do their what baby tantrum actions .
To borrow a few liberal buzzwords: The “correct” political view is that a truly “enlightened” society will not “tolerate” that which destroys it. And embracing homosexuality will tear our social fabric apart just as surely as it has everytime it’s been accepted historically.
Menino (Mayor of Boston) isn't gay, but I think when they removed the growth from his nose, they acccidentally took out what was left of his brains.
Well, he IS a business man AND a Christian. Wow, wouldn't that be something. All the attorneys we have elected into office seem to all be focused on circumventing and destroying our constitution and the laws of our land. They need to be replaced by business men with higher standards than what we are seeing in our gov. today. We have made the bar too low for our elected officials and have come to the bottom of the pond.
Same as with the homo kiss-in, the results may not be healthy.
Holy crap is right.
Plus a round of nausea.
Just regular folks at the one I stopped in at around 9:00AM this morning.
Had two spicey chicken biscuts and an OJ. Yum Yum.
I might have just found someone to write in. Thank you.
a gay going to Chick Fil A
watch it all the way to the end
I’m all dressed up to go to Chick-Fil-A for lunch with a patriotic shirt and a small American flag. A co-worker explained that today wasn’t “flag” day at CFA. Gee...I feel so silly.
“The gay community is so Heterophobic!”
I plan to steal and use that!
I been trying to preach that since the 2008 disaster. I used to post in 2009 that Republicans need to pick a number of issues that unite them and split Dems to either make them cave or at least weaken them. After a series of those successful battles weakening Dems with public (voters) opinion they can move onto bigger more challenging fights. (That is not to say that there are no risks in cherry picking fights like that though, it has to be done correctly as a progression .)
I see Republicans take too many conservative looking stands (since Boehner took the House) that they dont seem serious about trying to fight and win. It leaves me with the belief that those positions are meant to be symbolic stands to ward off primary challenges to cover up the vREAL BILLS that they are passing that actually goes into law, and those symbolic 'conservative;' bills are not meant by them to ever be law, or even debated with Dems during the general election. So I wonder if they even believe in them.
I don’t think that they do believe them. And I think your analysis astutely grasps the real situation: Things now stand where you indicate.
That’s a good point. I hope it works against the sodomites.
Watch your back.
Could it be?
How can you have a 'kiss in' with only one idiot? His 'partner' stood him up?
I know. With all the truly worthy causes needing attention in the world, these perverts are in an uproar to force everyone to support their right to commit nasty perverted disease-prone sex acts. Their whole identities and lives are invested in a degraded harmful sex act. I wonder if the insanity of this ever occurs to them. Nah, they’re too busy being slaves to their perverted lusts.
Will Shep Smith, of Fag news, participate at a grope in.
I’ve been posting here for years on and off about my “gay experience”. No, I’m not gay but in high school my best friends father became “confused”. He was a doctor and very well off. Suddenly he was having gay parties at the house. A house his wife also lived in but hers is another story.
The parties were very interesting. I was 16 and these guys hit on me with abandon. I’d keep telling them to leave me alone but they would not. I remember throwing one in the pool after he grabbed me in the wrong spot.
All of the queers (they used that word then and do today) were in some ways odd. The majority were self-loathing and self-dectructive. The flaming fags (again, their word) were the funniest, many of the guys you could not tell were gay and then there were the leather types. I would not mess with the latter because they were mean SOB’s.
My buddy and I would usually hide upstairs in his room during these big gay parties. Mainly because his father did not want me around. Why? Because I’d always do one simple thing and throw the whole place in to an uproar. I’d wait until they were all pretty drunk and I’d ask a group of them “You put that in the back of there then at some point the guy puts that in his mouth right? Most of the time both of you do that so the thing with all you guys is that you like to eat $hit”. The last question would drive them insane! It still does today if you ask this of gay men.
Like I said, my simple little question would always cause an uproar. Why? I knew why because some of these guys were involved with ACT UP! and I had heard them talk to each other. The simple fact is that they did not ever want anyone addressing the core thing and that is what gay men do with each other physically. It is their achilles hill. It is a shot through the heart to them.
When I, a 16 years old kid, asked them how it was that they liked to “eat poop” they did then as they do today, they changed the subject. They would not talk about the “feces issue”. They would rant about “love” and “caring” and all sorts of other emotional stuff.
I like many people don’t care what gays do as long as they don’t mess with me or anyone else. Most people ate that way but today the gay community has gone way overboard with their rabid quest to be seen as “normal”. They have tried to force that on 98.5% of the rest of us and most of us are fed up with them.
My suggestion is to stop turning a blind eye to what gay men do. They eat poop. Bring that up and see what happens. There is no defense when it comes to that. They don’t have one and most Americans are repulsed by such actions. Most are repulsed by seeing gay men kiss and that is why you hardly ever see it on TV. Humans have a natural instinct to see it as not natural.
The gay community is much more aggressive today as they have ever been. You can thank Barack Obama for that because he is a guy that thinks humans eating poop is OK. FYI, I’ve met 100’s of gay men and Obama is not straight. No way!
NOTE: Over the years I have posted a post here on FR like I did above. It would involve the use of words like “feces”. People complained and once I got banned for a bit. If I have offended anyone I apologize. That is not my intention. Frankly, I felt sorry for just about every gay man I ever met. They were just about all somewhat wretched, self-loathing and self-destructive. The ones that want to force themselves on the other 98.5% of the population and MAKE us say they are “normal” are very aggressive and they have been extremely successful in taking what they do to each other physically out of the conversation. They had won that battle as far as I was concerned but recent events have me wondering now. Again, my apologies to anyone my post may have offended.
very well said.
You’re right we have so many problems in this country and yet we have a small group who base their life on their harmful unhealthy sex life.
Why can;t they just get on with their lives, why not just keep their sex life private?
No we have to see freak parades, where they touch and grope each other, make fun of Christians and dress in a very bizarre way.
They then say they’re proud because of their sex?????
What is that about anyway.
What;s with them having sex in bathrooms, dog parks, etc, just go into the bedroom, what is it with their disgusting perverted language?
I’e spoken to so many people about this and most are saying” had no problem with them when they said it was their private business but now they are out in our faces demanding rights based on their sex life and I’ve had it”
Enough is enough but my kids and their pals all in different grade schools do not go along with it.
Thanks, lets see if you can buy this then....
There are two stands in particular that raised my suspicions to alarm levels.
I don't think they were ever serious about the original Ryan plan, that non-legislative symbolic proposal (house vote) was just meant to ward off primary challenges for the bills they are really passing into law and never meant by them to be seriously debated with Dems.
Either they never meant to win that debate or they are just clueless and inept.
But worse was that Debt limit closed door bill exactly a year ago that they (House Republicans like Ryan) passed with Obama and with the Republicans claiming it was a major success and victory to cut the deficit, yet now a year later they are calling the exact same bill's delayed cuts a doomsday budget and acting like they had NOTHING to do with passing it, trying to delay it another year. This one REALLY IRKS me.
Goodness gracious! You don’t drink that stuff, do you? :-)
“I was amazed at how good the food was and how fast and polite the service was, even in pandemonium”
Chicken wraps and peach shakes. Mmmmm, good!
Yes, all understood.
The question would be as you note, whether they are inept and disorganized and not constant - or just cunningly strategic. Time will tell. I tend to think there is strategy in back of all.
Just got back from my local Chick-fil-A. It’s lunchtime, crowds are brisk (but nothing like Wednesday) and not a protester to be seen. Looks like they will only be trying to have kissins in large cities or college towns where there may be a larger concentration of gays with nothing better to do than be ignored. I was greeted at the door by a manager and I told him how much we appreciate them.
I'm thinking about going there and kissing my dog.
BTW, our family NEVER before had lunch at CFA. Well, we did yesterday and will do so every week from now on. Their Chargrilled Chicken Garden Salad is only $5.98.
Chargrilled Chicken Garden Salad
Yeah, they may be waiting for the 8 pm EST thing.
Also, it sounds like some of them are not even going to go into stores and buy anything - just kiss in front of the sign, take pic, leave, and post on Facebook. Some protest! How silly and cowardly...
Unclear? Not because the press isn't trying to help gays as much as possible. Did the MSM carry a story Tuesday - a day ahead of time - or the morning of - our protest? No. They kept as quiet as they could ... and we still showed up.
With the gay 'community' the LA TIMES runs the story about their protest the day before hand and the morning of... Like a PR press release.
The MSM will be there for the gays with reporters and photographers. All the 'community' has to do is call them and say, 'we'll do the kiss at 11 - so show up on time'... Must be nice to be the teacher's pet. Must be nice to work for a paper that doesn't care about all their readers - just the liberal elite ones...
Shame on the MSM -shame on them.
That's what I had for lunch Wednesday - with the fat free honey mustard dressing which was delicious!
Gays don't have to do a real protest - the press works with them.
Here's how they'll do it... A member of the 'community' will call a friend at the local paper and tell them 14 gays will show up at 11 AM and will do the 'kiss' at 11:15 and the paper and local TV stations need to be there on time... they'll tell them which Chick-fil-A - that the paper can get all their shots at one location... At 11:30 the whole fake 'protest' will be over and the press will leave. Then they'll play it as big or bigger than the real protest of hundreds of thousands of people showing up in support of traditional marriage.
Ask yourself, would the press allow us to pull off a fake protest with a dozen people showing up for less than a half hour at one Chick-fil-A in each large city?
The Washington Post, New York Times, Newsweek, LA Times, ABC and NBC are throwing their credibility away faster than we can be furious...
Of course they will. Two kissers, eight cameramen, fifteen reporters, breathless news stories about a social movement gathering steam. The decision has already been made that this will be a story, by journalists who see themselves not as reporters but as agents of social change.
And frankly, I'm OK with that. The more this is forced on an unwilling public, the greater the reaction will be three months from now. They want change? Well, change is coming.
Yes, shame on the MSM.
On the other hand, on Aug 1 their attitude really put our side at an advantage:
They have been delusional and biased for so long, and have been spin-doctoring news for so long, that they really & truly, i believe, had no idea what massive support would turn out on Wed.
They operate in a self-deluded vacume and have a mutual-admiration society with gays and liberals. In a sense, this puts us at an advantage because they truly do not see reality.
So let them spin the kiss-in. They will get a shock in the coming days and months.
Arlington, Texas. Went for breakfast. Busy but no homos apparent. The police started setting up barricades, etc., to manage traffic flow about an hour ago in anticipation of the Gay Mafiosi showing up.
Well let's look at the second possibility closer and gilb0 will appreciate this, the us-versus-them mode that the parties get most of their own voters into by preaching that the other side is evil lends itself to Republicans (or Dems with their Lib issues) convincing them (voters) that they (the party)really want to pass these conservative things but were foiled by the evil other side. So it is the voters and MSM fault because the party doesnt have enough power.
Of course when Republicans DID have the congress and the POTUS 2005 to 2006 the stuff they did pass was hardly gold. But they are different now so trust them, again
I recall a popular Republican excuse here for GWB supporting and signing liberal type bills with Democrats was “...but Democrats wanted Bush to do that....” . Another was “If he didnt do that the Democrats would have attacked him”.
I never found theses excuses very convincing.
Thanks for that report - now let’s see if they show...
I can see the Chick-Fil-A from my store’s front window. I’ll keep checking and report if it gets weird.
No, the excuses were not convincing.
And still aren’t.
Just drove by the Chick Fil A on Winchester Road in Memphis and didn’t see any heterophobes. Of course Memphis is about as far away from Castro Street as you can get. The same CFA was packed beyond belief on Wednesday around this time.
The writer can't count either.
The move comes after thousands of restaurant supporters
Thousands??? If they didn't serve over a million people yesterday, I'd be very surprised.
Without question - I meant to mention that too, but there was so much other work to do.....LOL.
I think the kiss-in is a flop.
