August 1 declared Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day to show support for traditional marriage


Huckabee has declared August 1 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

“Let’s affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, August 1,” said the former Republican Presidential candidate.

Huckabee said the company has come under attack from militant homosexuals and is being “smeared by vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry from the left.”

“The militant homosexual advocates have launched an all out assault on Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A,” he said. “The attempts to hurt or destroy Chick-fil-A are nothing short of economic bullying.”

Make no mistake, there is a "militant" type movement within
the gay community that has openly expressed an agenda of forcing the acceptance of homosexuality on American society.

Chick-fil-A has my business.

Huckabee has declared August 1 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

Why???

How many votes does he think this will gain him vs. the number it might cost him. Often I don't understand the advice advisers and strategists give.... So the republican candidate might win the religious right vote. Make the statement and you won't pick up any significant votes and might annoy some moderates you had a chance at... Good idea...

Then again I think it is nothing but theater for politicians and political organizations to declare a special day for anything just meaningless banter but almost exclusively I prefer they do meaningless banter vs. making laws so.... :whistling:

If you have a cause you support go ahead and declare a day for it.

It's time to get serious, this is a serious issue.

Consider the following very carefully, and choose wisely.

Chick-fil-A operates more than 1,600 stores nationwide.

The new chocolate-chunk cookie, always served warm, sells for $1.09. The classic fudge brownie gets a makeover: instead of being sprinkled with walnuts, the dessert is now topped with creamy fudge icing. The new fudge brownie sells for $1.69.
Specialty sundaes, made with Chick-fil-A's vanilla "Icedream," include fudge brownie ($2.95) and chocolate-chunk cookie ($1.75). Each frozen treat is drizzled with Hershey's chocolate syrup and finished with whipped cream and a cherry. A mini ice-cream sundae, which starts at 99 cents, is available for portion-minded patrons.
For milkshake fans, the banana-pudding shake is made with hand-spun vanilla ice cream, bananas and Nilla Wafers, topped with whipped cream and a cherry. Cookies and cream, strawberry, chocolate and vanilla milkshakes are also available.

I was at a Chic today - it was packed inside and so was the drive thru. I got a big welcome when I walked in the door and everyone was polite and courteous. Now there is a McDonalds near me also and they are similar in their hospitality. Then again, this is Georgia.

I'll go again tomorrow to support them. But since it is a private company they will not release sales data.

I tend to go to Zaxby's when I want to have chicken, etc. However, given the whining by the queers and those who stand behind them, I think I will make a point of patronizing Chick-Fil-A. It's the American thing to do.

I went to one of many here on Saturday. It was packed! The drive thru was into the street and there was a line out the door.

Chris Plante on WMAL just reported that there are at least 200 people in line in a Chick-Fil-A in Springfield, VA.

Some estimates are that half a million people plan to visit a Chick-Fil-A today. That's Woodstock.:hippie:

The media has to carefully decide how to ignore or minimize this, because everybody knows something major is going on right now all over the US.

It's not about stopping gay marriage. It is about the right of Dan Cathy to say he is personally opposed to it and not have his business threatened because he expressed a religious or political
opinion. You know, that pesky 1st amendment thing.

Just got back from local Chick-fil-A; I went early to try to beat the lunch rush and make it to a mid-day meeting. Even at 10:30 local time, the place was packed; line to the registers, and all around the restaurant via the drive-thru.

Unlike Obamacare, you are not required to eat at chick-fil-a. A representative of the government is, however, required to allow them to use their first amendment rights to speak political or religious speech (or donations). The constitution limits the .gov, not the people.

This is about a government out of control and denying a business the opportunity to make it on it's own merits.

I'll say, "I told you so." The protesting and boycotting is perfect for Chick-Fil_A, as I've mentioned. Nothing brings christians together like a claim they are being persecuted - you may notice it's a common theme among TV preachers, even if they have to make it up. Anybody with half a brain could predict that, in a country where 76% of the people are christians, a small minority attacking a business for its expression of christian values would be a loss for the minority and a big win for the busineess.

If Cathy's remarks were not a ploy to boost business, they should have been.

I don't see how that relates to what I said. It's common to groups to motivate members by claiming outside enemies or persecution. Among christians, it is easily observable to non-christians by watching TV preachers and religious commentators of various types.

He is a great employee - polite, asks if he can take your tray and if you want a refill.

He treats others with respect and is treated the same way by customers.
