    San Antonio Express-News ^ | 08/24/2012 | Patrick Danner
    First, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy last month endorsed a biblical definition of marriage, thrusting the chain in the middle of the debate on gay marriage. Supporters came out in droves to its stores on Aug. 1, driving records sales, according to Chick-fil-A. Now, San Antonio’s Whataburger Restaurants LLC is taking a stand of a different note by suing one of the country’s largest debt collections agencies.

    San Jose Mercury News ^ | 23 August 2012 | Molly Vorwerck
    Chicken was in high demand Thursday in the Bay Area, as San Jose's first Chick-fil-A restaurant celebrated its grand opening. Located on the corner of First Street and Headquarters Drive, the store marks the fast food chain's first stand-alone restaurant in the Silicon Valley. Before this one, the closest Chick-fil-A was in Fairfield, and many years ago there was a location in the Sunnyvale Town Center shopping center. The chain intends to open another Bay Area franchise in Walnut Creek in October. Not even a sprinkle of protesters, rallying against Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's recent anti-gay marriage statements, could darken...

    The organizer of a large picnic event designed to help unify Republican leaders and supporters in Connecticut next Saturday canceled his plans to serve 100 Chick-fil-A sandwiches after deciding the controversy over the restaurant owner's stand against same-sex marriage might become a distraction. . . Apparently, because same-sex marriage is legal in Connecticut, Beck reconsidered his decision, according to the Post. He plans to give 90 of the sandwiches to a homeless shelter and keep 10 for "event staff to taste."

    The San Francisco Weekly ^ | August 21, 2012 | Suzanne Stathatos
    Chick-fil-A, the fast food chain that San Franciscans reamed last month, has given the gay marriage movement a few more potential Bay Area locations to stage future kiss-ins. According to media outlets, the Atlanta-based chain bought property in Novato in Marin County this past month with hopes of opening a new restaurant soon, and it has other plans to expand to the East Bay. Naturally, this news has left a bad taste in the mouths of the LGBT community. Stuart Gaffney, media director of MarriageEquality USA, told SF Weekly that he wasn't confident the fast-food chain would thrive in this...

    NEW YORK, August 20, 2012, ( – The “ filthy, degenerate, gutter Christians” at the Family Research Council inspired last week’s shooting by “going too far” with their pro-family activism, according to a nationally syndicated liberal talk show host. “You filthy, filthy right-wing b——-ds, you’re going too far!” Mike Malloy told his audience last week. “One of these days somebody’s going to go berserk and walk into one of your filthy holes of religious insanity with a gun.” Switching to a mocking tone, Malloy said, “Oh. I think that happened today.” Malloy went on to say the council would “happily...

    Mitt Romney campaign spent $500 at Chick-fil-A By: Tarini Parti August 20, 2012 08:44 PM EDT The Romney campaign appreciates Chick-fil-A. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s campaign spent $500 at a Chick-fil-A in Atlanta last month, days before former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s national “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” on Aug 1. Romney’s campaign reported the cost as “meeting expense” in its monthly federal campaign finance filing on Monday. The Atlanta-based fast food chain has come under fire after the company’s president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that Chick-fil-A was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.”...

    First Amendment needs no amendmentChick-fil-A triggered a nationwide debate over the meaning of marriage, but another fundamental issue raised during the argument is whether the left believes in free speech. The rapid rise of efforts to retaliate against the restaurant chain for a personal expression of the company’s CEO indicates a vein of hostility toward those who happen to have a differing opinion on an important public-policy issue. Given that some liberals are already campaigning for a constitutional amendment to curtail speech, defense of free expression is more crucial than ever. Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A’s chief, made a simple statement affirming...

    A local food fight is causing a lot of squawking in the Village. The ruckus began when Dan Cathy, president of the Atlanta-based restaurant chain Chick-fil-A, criticized gay marriage. N.Y.U.’s Weinstein Residence Hall, which is currently closed for summer break, serves food from this company. The Village location is the only Chick-fil-A franchise in the city. Hillary Dworkoski, a former student at N.Y.U.’s Gallatin School of Indi-vidualized Study, caused a lot of clucking by circulating a petition at, urging N.Y.U. to stop doing business with Chick-fil-A. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who is openly gay, stirred the pot...

    The head of a second Christian conservative organization said Friday she was told by authorities that a note containing her group's contact information was found in the pocket of a man charged with opening fire at the Washington offices of another such group, wounding a security guard. Traditional Values Coalition President Andrea Lafferty said FBI agents visited her group's Capitol Hill offices hours after the Wednesday morning shooting as part of their investigation. The next day, she said, members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force came by and confirmed that "our information was in his pocket," including the location of...

    There are those who argue that Liberal ideology promotes creativity and produces citizens with “happier” demeanors. With no legit proof ever proffered up by them to support the theory, I counter that argument with proof that the worst possible ideology is one which refuses to teach its followers to take NO for an answer… With the shooting and homicidal intentions Wednesday at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, DC … we saw the fruition of the seething, unrestrained hatred on the Left and their complete and total intolerance of ANYONE who dares to hold a differing opinion than their...

    NEW YORK CITY (BP) -- New York City may be one of the more liberal cities in America, but more than 80 percent of voters there believe public officials should neither prevent Chick-fil-A from opening new franchises nor discourage citizens from visiting it, a new poll shows. The Quinnipiac University survey of 1,298 New York City voters showed that by an 82-12 percent margin, the city's voters don't think that the Chick-fil-A president's stance on marriage should "have an impact on their ability to obtain government permits to do business." Similarly, by an 83-11 margin, voters don't believe elected officials...
