    In response to media reports that Chick-fil-A has agreed to stop making charitable donations to groups like Focus on the Family, the company today released a statement to set the record straight. Contrary to reports first made by the gay-activist group The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) on Tuesday and later picked up by mainstream media outlets, Chick-fil-A and its charitable-giving arm, the WinShape Foundation, did not agree to stop making donations to groups that support the biblical definition of marriage in exchange for being allowed to open a franchise in Chicago. “For many months now, Chick-fil-A’s corporate giving has been...

    It is probably one of the hardest things a gay man will ever have to do and one has decided to share his heartbreaking experience with the world. 'James', 33, from Pennsylvania, uploaded a letter sent to him by his father five years ago on internet messaging board Reddit, shortly after he worked up the courage to come out to him. James reveals he called his father to tell him the news in August 2007: 'I finally built up the courage to tell my father I was gay.

    Should someone be fired from their job and threatened with violence, torture, even death because they have an opinion different than yours? Of course not. And yet, that is what Adam M. Smith of Arizona says happened to him. Adam Smith’s life has been turned upside-down in the 36 hours that followed his posting the video of his protest at Chick-fil-A, which involved letting a young, female employee at the drive-thru know what he thinks about the company. (You can watch the video here.)

    Adam Smith, the man who videotaped himself getting free water at a Chick-Fil-A drive-thru just to berate the young woman as been fired. Smith in his video said he was happy to feel "purposeful" in condemning the Chick-Fil-A employee over CEO Dan Cathy's same-sex-marriage remarks. The video went viral and citizen journalists tracked him down online and grabbed copies of his resume.

  • Mainstream Media Blacks Out Chick-fil-A Story?

    Weekly Standard ^ | 8-2-12 | Mike Warren
    Wednesday was Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, and Americans flocked to the fast food restaurant in response to criticism of COO Dan Cathy's opposition to same-sex marriage (as well as threats from the mayors of some major cities). The photos of long lines and traffic jams reveal the extent of the restaurant's support--for some it's about traditional values and for others it's about freedom of religious exercise and speech in the face of government intimidation. There are even rumors that Chick-fil-A set a new world record for sales in a single day, though the company has yet to release any sales numbers.

    Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago values. They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment. --Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel, speaking on why he is in favor of blocking Chick-fil-A from opening in Chicago Recent comments from those who administer our city seem to assume that city government can decide for everyone what "values" must be held by the citizens of Chicago..being a Chicagoan never [before] included submitting my value system to the government for approval...must those who do not conform [now] move? Is the City Council going to set up a "Council Committee on Un-Chicagoan Activities"...

    One day after having the best sales day in its history, Chick-fil-A will have to prepare itself for a counter-protest to yesterday's "appreciation day" by those outraged over threats made by mayors and city council members in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York (Mayor Michael Bloomberg did not join his colleagues in the other cities). Supporters of same-sex marriage will stage "kiss-ins" at Chick-fil-A locations tomorrow, if a Facebook-organized protest succeeds: Yesterday’s banner turnout at Chick-fil-A restaurants for free speech rights — with thousands of people nationwide and hundreds in the Bay State’s two locations lining up to buy...

    A powerful New York politician claims she was just speaking as a private citizen when she tried to run Chick-fil-A out of town, but she used her official letterhead and even invoked her position as City Council speaker to apply pressure on the embattled chicken chain. New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who has mayoral aspirations, sent a letter to New York University president John Sexton on Saturday asking the school to immediately end their contract with the fast food restaurant. The Atlanta-based company's sole New York City outlet is in the school's food court. "I write as the...

    PHOTOS: Chick-Fil-As Across The Country Are Absolutely Jam-Packed Brett LoGiurato and Kim Bhasin Aug. 1, 2012, 4:06 PM By all early accounts, Gov. Mike Huckabee's "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" seems like a wild success. Conservatives are lining up in droves. Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is offering his support and urging supporters to visit a restaurant. One Wendy's franchise owner expressed his support for Chick-fil-A at a North Carolina Wendy's. Chick-fil-A originally incurred a backlash when COO Dan Cathy affirmed in an interview that the company did not support gay marriage. "We are very much supportive of the family —...

    WASHINGTON, August 1, 2012 (LifeSitenews.com) - Countless lunchgoers posted pictures on their Facebook pages and Twitter showing their Chick-Fil-A stores and drive-thrus stuffed to the gills on Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, a show of support for CEO Dan Cathy’s Biblical stance on marriage. Conservative leaders from across America described the chicken-crazed chaos. Jim Sedlak of the American Life League said that “our little Chick-Fil-A in Stafford, Virginia was absolutely mobbed at lunch time,” forcing hungry families to journey over from nearby parking lots. “They have a very little parking lot, but it was just absolutely mobbed today. It was terrific,” Sedlak...

    Today is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, an event semi-organized by Mike Huckabee in response to the Gay Mafia's attempt to browbeat a private citizen into silence, all because he stood up for something he believed in. Mumbles Menino and Rahmbo can kiss moral America's collective butt if the response in other Chick-fil-A restaurants is even remotely similar to what I saw just a few minutes ago at our local one. The place is being overwhelmed!! I told the manager why we were here and, after thanking us, he said that there was no way he could have prepared for such a...

    In 1994, Newt Gingrich presented the "Contract with America." It was a "contract" from Republican politicians to voters concerning what legislative action the new majority would take in its first hundred days. In 2010, the People are preparing a "Contract from America," which establishes what the voters expect from their legislative representatives. The "Contract from America" is what the "Contract with America" should have been but wasn't. The "Contract from America" (CFA) is a grassroots, bottom-up document created by hundreds of thousands of people who are part of the Tea Party protests and Glenn Beck's 912 Project. It began in...

Some said her death - which happened the same week the U.S. Forest Service canceled the controversial Eagle Creek timber sale - makes them more committed than ever to stopping logging on public land. Others voiced anger that protesters must risk their lives to change federal forest policy. And most said cancellation of the timber sale...
