    The video starts out with a lesbian like woman stating how angry she is at the turnout at a southern California Chick Fil A, and then comes the "it's a redneck convention", by whom I think is her daughter, and then it is selected interviews to put conservatives in a bad light. A new Brian Williams/Dan Rather in the making.

    There is a thin line between free speech and criminal action. Actually that line is supposed to be broader than you think. Free speech is protected as long as it is not a lie used with malicious intent or an expression that destroys other people’s property. So, how do you know when you have crossed over from freedom of expression to freedom to be in handcuffs? Ask Manuel Castro. Wait, you don’t know who he is? Of course you do or gay individuals should. He is the guy that wrote the words “TASTE LIKE HATE” all over the Chick-fil-A in...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- In a sign that the debate over Chick-fil-A is not going away, traditional groups in the four states voting on gay marriage this fall apparently are set to make the pushback against the restaurant an issue, arguing that the intimidation and name-calling aimed at Chick-fil-A were only a preview of what will happen to traditionalists if marriage is redefined. In recent days pro-traditional marriage groups in Maine and Washington state have sent emails to supporters referencing the Chick-fil-A controversy, with one of them warning "there will be profound consequences" if gay marriage is legalized. The National...

    Sex is always interesting, but mix it with politics in a presidential campaign and it becomes downright sensational. First Amendment guarantees of free speech get lost in the protest when gay couples meet to make out at Chick-fil-A. Instead of ordering the spicy chicken sandwich, these men and men and women and women spice up their relationship with rage against Dan Cathy, the born-again president of Chick-fil-A, for saying he supports "the biblical definition of the family unit." The focus on the controversy is silly, but in our media-saturated world, it's the way things play out, with lots of loud...

    New York Times food writer and reporter Mark Bittman issued an apology on his nytimes.com blog on Tuesday for a venemous post on the recent death of Chick-fil-A's vice-president for public relations Donald Perry.

    The decision whether to eat at Chick-fil-A has become a hot-button issue since the fast food company’s president opened up about his support for traditional marriage, but one local politician says she’s not making a political statement by welcoming the company with open arms. Prince George's County Council member Karen R. Toles, a Democrat, said she’s attending the opening of a Chick-fil-A in District Heights on Thursday to celebrate the economic development in her community. “When you have someone who hires over 100 people from your county alone, that is something to celebrate,” Ms. Toles said. Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy...

    The gay marriage controversy may now be standing in the way of a new Chik-fil-A opening in California. This week, five members of Santa Barbara's architectural board abstained from approving a landscaping plan for a restaurant. The move essentially halts the project from moving forward. City Councilman Frank Hotchkiss condemned the board and requested its members resign. "For a group thats supposed to working on architectural benefits for the city to just stop what they're doing because of their political views is outrageous," he said. Board member Gary Mosel disagreed with Hotchkiss. "I feel he's jumping the gun, and not...

    Chick-fil-A’s longstanding stance against gay marriage has raised the ire of pro-homosexual groups in recent days, but also sparked an appreciation day for the restaurant. On appreciation day, August 1st, former University of Arizona adjunct professor Adam Smith decided that he would order a free water as an opportunity to confront this “hateful” company. “Smith confronted Rachel on ‘Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,’ a show of support for the chain and its CEO, Dan Cathy, spearheaded by former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee,” according to Philip Caulfield with the New York Daily News. Smith then decided to videoblog the encounter. As previously...

Manuel Castro, 30, was arrested on suspicion of vandalism about 7 p.m. Wednesday in West Hollywood, said Torrance police Sgt. Steve Jenkinson. Investigators are also working to identify a person of interest "who may have been involved in the commission of this crime."

    That evening at the Burlington Mall food court, the first things one noticed were some uniformed Burlington police and also several uniformed mall cops. The mall cops approached anyone they suspected was a reporter and told them they couldn't take photos or videos. (For the flood of people on "Appreciation Day" there were no police that we could see and maybe three mall cops. And lots of people took photos and videos the entire time with no trouble.) Around 7:45 pm about a dozen or so activists suddenly came marching into the food court and gathered in front of Chick-fil-A....

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently said of the Chick-fil-A fast-food franchise that "Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago's values." Why? Because Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is on record as being opposed to gay marriage -- as is close to half the U.S. population, according to polls. The mayors of Boston and San Francisco also suggested that the company isn't welcome in their cities. Oddly, none of these public officials have lectured President Obama to keep clear of their cities. Yet until recently, Obama was likewise on record as opposing gay marriage. Why the exemption? Nor have the mayors in question disinvited...

    You know all those people who made last Wednesday the most profitable single day in Chick-fil-A’s history? I’m still trying to figure out how they managed to eat the thousands of chicken sandwiches they bought – while simultaneously patting themselves on the back with both hands in honor of their political stand. By filling Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s coffers with even more moolah than usual, many somehow feel they were striking a blow for traditional marriage and free speech in America. Buffalo chips. They didn’t do a thing in the world except help fatten a corporate chieftain’s bottom line and...

    A gay activist group “re-launched” a boycott of the embattled Chick-fil-A restaurant chain, with a protest at the only Chicago store Wednesday afternoon. Protesters gathered at 4:30 p.m. at the 30 E. Chicago store. In a statement, the group Gay Liberation Network is seeking to boycott what they claim is millions of dollars that is used to promote discrimination against gays. The restaurant became a lightning rod for controversy last month when the company’s CEO Dan Cathy said “we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say 'We know better than you...

And while it is unclear who started the argument, police have launched an investigation into the matter. A department spokesperson says the issue is not whether the sergeant brought the sandwich...

Despite the controversy, the majority of voters still view Chick-fil-A favorably, according to a Rasmussen reports survey. Sixty-one percent of voters hold a favorable opinion of Chick-fil-A, including 40 percent who view the chain Very Favorably. Only 31 percent have an unfavorable view of the restaurant, with 14 percent who regard it Very Unfavorably. Just 13 percent of Likely U.S. Voters are likely to participate in a boycott of Chick-fil-A restaurants. By way of comparison,...

    No matter how much ink has been spilled on the unconstitutionality of using government power to censor speech, including by scores of “progressives,” homosexual activists just won’t let up. The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA), yet another organization committed solely to normalizing homosexuality, has filed an absurd complaint against Chick-fil-A with the Illinois Department of Human Rights. Their claim is that Chick-fil-A violates “Section 5-102(B) of the Illinois Human Rights Act, which prohibits a ‘public accommodation’ from making protected classes ‘unwelcome, objectionable or unacceptable.’” In their press release last Thursday, TCRA made clear their tyrannical and unholy demands on Chick-fil-A —...

The real story is how the media played it up.

    Americans keep behaving in ways that baffle the liberal mainstream media. Two examples figured prominently -- or should have -- in last week's news. One is the runoff primary for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Texas. Former state Solicitor General Ted Cruz thumped incumbent Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, 57 to 43 percent. Cruz won even though the Texas Republican establishment, from Gov. Rick Perry on down, endorsed Dewhurst.

    Members of the Gay Liberation Network, a local direct-action LGBT rights group, and other LGBT activists have called for a third protest outside of the River North Chick-fil-A — this time on Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 4:30 p.m. “As our movement against Anita Bryant showed a generation ago, even very entrenched bigots can be defeated by smart and effective use of boycotts, demonstrations and other direct mobilizations of LGBTI’s and our allies,” said Andy Thayer of the Gay Liberation, the group which initiated next Wednesday’s protest, in a media release Friday. About a handful of protesters stood outside of the...

    Fox News’ Shep Smith, the host of the cable news channel’s primetime "Studio B," seemed to take issue with the controversial Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, which was created by former Gov. Mike Huckabee -- a fellow Fox News anchor -- and turned out to be one of the company’s best days regarding sales. Smith, who has stated that he supports marriage equality in the past, was able to cleverly slam the fast-food chain and the politician without directly mentioning them, Mediaite reported. "It’s National Badminton Day," he said on his show. "Let’s forget National Day of Intolerance. Let’s just stay with...

    The gay rights battle is now covering everything from soap to clucks. Following the uproar over Chick-fil-A and same-sex marriage, gay rights advocates are pushing for a boycott of cleaning and beauty products company Amway—and its affiliates, including the Orlando Magic basketball team. The boycott call is in response to a $500,000 donation to battle gay marriage made by a foundation funded by Amway president and founder Doug DeVos. The recipient of the donation, the National Organization for Marriage, "has been one of the most virulently anti-LGBT organizations in the country," says a statement launching the boycott by Rights Equal...

    CBS couldn’t resist taking one parting bite at Chick-fil-A. On Aug. 6, CBS “This Morning” anchors Gayle King and Jeff Glor highlighted a lesbian chef’s “Chick on Chick Filet,” made with “loving chicken breasts,” a “honey mustard witness,” and “tolerant fries.” Anchor Jeff Glor reported: “The Houston Press tells us about a restaurant weighing in on the Chick-fil-A same-sex marriage controversy. Beaver’s Restaurant in Houston, which is owned by a lesbian chef, created a special sandwich. The Chick on Chick Filet is described as ‘two loving chicken breasts married on toasty buns with a honey mustard witness and joined in celebration...

    ... Ordinary Americans went to Chick-Fil-A restaurants around the Nation because they had had enough. Enough of the threats to freedom and the bullying of people like the owners of that restaurant chain, precisely because they had the courage to voice their convictions in the public square. Because they defended marriage as what it is, they were literally threatened, not only by the strident cultural revolutionaries who seek to enforce a new cultural order upon us all, but by Mayors of major cities who were willing to enforce that new cultural order at the expense of true freedom. We see...

    When it comes to the assault on Chick-fil-A, radio giant Rush Limbaugh says the popular restaurant chain is not the real target. It's something more near and dear to the hearts of most Americans, and it deals with their Lord and Savior.PALM BEACH, Fla. – Radio giant Rush Limbaugh says the ongoing national dispute over Chick-fil-A’s stance for biblically based marriage is nothing short of an attack on Christianity as a whole. “Now Christianity has to be banned, and that’s where this is all headed,” Limbaugh said this afternoon on his top-rated program. “All this stuff at Chick-fil-A, the target...

    WARNING! This post may contain images that will offend some viewers and is NSFW. Discretion is advised. As you probably know, the national “kiss in” day at Chick-fil-A was today. And while some branches of the store faced relative calm amidst this veritable storm of pro-gay sentiment, others weren’t so lucky. One Hollywood Chick-fil-A outlet had to call the police after it was vandalized, and in general, the whole thing appears to have been a bit of an excuse for rampant disarray. And much of that disarray has been caught on-camera, whether by the wire services, or by enterprising, courageous...

    Over at Legal Insurrection, Anne Sorock of The Frontier Lab has posted video of gay rights protestors harassing and mocking an African-American "street preacher" outside a Chicago Chik-Fil-A. No one in his or her right mind thinks this kind of behavior advances anyone's cause. Even so, no one should be more alarmed by it than those in the campaign of President Obama, as they watch representatives from one key demographic constituency treat a representative of another so disrespectfully.

    Liberals Democrats say they are for tolerance. But they won't tolerate a business man who believes marriage is between a man and a woman. But the American people do support traditional marriage and free speech. The evidence was undeniable!
