    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...
  • Chick-fil-A to be issue in gay marriage votes

    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. In a recent blog post, I used an inappropriate phrase to refer to the late VP of PR for Chick-fil-A. My choice of words did not rise to either my own standards or to The TimesÂ’s, and the phrase has been removed from the post. I regret this lapse. In a recent blog post, I used an inappropriate phrase to refer to the late VP of...

    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...

    Torrance police have arrested a West Hollywood artist who allegedly painted the words "Tastes like hate" on the side of a Chick-fil-A restaurant last week. 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." The graffiti — accompanied by a representation of a cow holding a paint brush — appeared during a week of demonstrations at Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide sparked by company President Dan Cathy's public...

Dallas Police Association President Ron Pinkston said Sgt. Mark Johnson of the Southeast Patrol Division brought a Chick-fil-A sandwich to the briefing room last Wednesday.

    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...
  • Commentary: Chick-fil-a day only fattened Cathy's wallet (Hurl, you will)

    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...
  • The Starbucks Appreciation Day That Wasn't

    ...A pro-SSM blogger in NYC had to admit by mid-day that the event wasn't going as planned, writing: "...Either we've become too complacent about this issue or the event just wasn't organized and promoted with enough vehemence. And now it seems like we may have lost this particular battle, especially since the haters cagily framed their actions as being pro-freedom-of-speech." Today it appears the Starbucks Appreciation Day was a complete bust. This marks the second failed attempted to counter-protest the Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day last week (the first attempt was the failed Chick-fil-A "kiss-in"): "The Chick-fil-A controversy has left the gay...

    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...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - The controversy over Chick-Fil-A may now have impacted the Dallas Police Department. CBS 11 has learned a Dallas Police Sergeant brought a sandwich from the embattled restaurant chain to work with him last Wednesday, August 1, a day known around the country as Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. When the Sergeant arrived at his post at the Southeast patrol, words were exchanged between himself and two female officers. 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...

    U.S. Rep. Allen West accused fellow Congressman Alcee Hastings of “political elitism” over comments Hastings made to an online media site about an alleged Chick-Fil-A incident. Hastings told the Huffington Post that West had offended the entire Congressional Black Caucus about six months ago, when he brought in chicken and biscuits from Chick-Fil-A when it was his turn to provide lunch at a weekly meeting.

    Ever since the president of Chick-fil-A volunteered his definition of marriage, the fast food chain has been the center of attention for friends and foes.

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,...
