Tens of Thousands Celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day Today (AUG 1, 2012) - or Anti-Rahm Emanuel Day!

People across the country are flocking to Chick-fil-A today, not because of the fast-food chain's chicken sandwiches, but because of its CEO's vocal support of traditional marriage.

Nearly 600,000 supporters signed up to celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day today, which former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee created to counter a boycott launched by gay marriage activists last week after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said he was "guilty as charged" for not supporting gay marriage.

"The goal is simple," Huckabee wrote on the Facebook page for the event. "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."

Courtney Clem, 22, strolled over to the Chick-fil-A in Crystal City, Va., to pick up lunch for her entire office and show her support. Clem said she wanted to eat at Chick-fil-A today not only because she supports traditional marriage but because she supports the First Amendment.

"We want to support their right to an opinion," Clem said. "I do support that opinion. And the right. Even if it was an opinion I disagreed with, I'd be here today. "

Clem said the Appreciation Day has been a success because Chick-fil-A supporters are responding to the opposition "causing such a stink about it, getting so upset about him voicing his opinion.

"I think it's more about people frankly being offended that people are offended," she said before hauling a tote-sized bag of chicken sandwiches out the door.

Cathy's comments that he supports "the biblical definition of the family unit" are not unusual: His restaurant is closed on Sundays and supports a nonprofit ministry foundation. But they have become a rallying cry for activists on both sides of the marriage debate in the past week.

Gay rights groups launched a national boycott of the chicken chain last week, which the mayors of Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and Washington, D.C., have publically supported.

The Philadelphia City Council is considering a resolution to condemn the company for what councilman Jim Kenney called their "Anti-American attitude."

D.C. councilman Marion Barry tweeted that he does not support "hate chicken," Boston's Mayor Thomas Menino said there is "no place for your company" in his city and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the restaurant's "values are not Chicago values."

The Chicago Republican Party is making a formal complaint against Emanuel today, alleging that the mayor has "broken civil rights laws pertaining to religious freedom and the First Amendment in denying Chick-fil-A a permit to operate its business in the City of Chicago."

Emanuel's press secretary clarified that the mayor does not intend to block Chick-fil-A from opening its first free-standing location in Chicago.

"If they meet all the usual requirements, then they can open their restaurant, but he does not believe the CEO's values are reflective of our city," mayoral spokesman Tarrah Cooper said, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

National conservative figures have responded to the controversy with an outpouring of support for the restaurant.

Sarah Palin posted a photo of her and her husband holding bulging bags of Chick-fil-A on her Facebook page. She also appeared on Fox News in an interview: "Well, that calling for the boycott is a real -- has a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights," Palin told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. "And the owner of the Chick-fil-A business had merely voiced his personal opinion about supporting traditional definition of marriage, one boy, one girl, falling in love, getting married.

"And having voiced support for kind of that cornerstone of all civilization and all religions since the beginning of time, he then basically [is] getting crucified."

She continued, suggesting that President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden had expressed similar sentiments about gay marriage until they made a push to appeal to gay voters.

Way to Go, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emannuel. Now you have made The National News, and made yourself look even stupider than your predecessor, Richie Daley. You've once again put Chicago in a bad light, with your bigoted , Anti-Christian Comments against the Chik-Fil-A restaurant Chain. Your ignorance and arrogance against Zchristians and their beliefs will be remembered at election time. Why don't you ever condemn any Muslim businesses for their stance on homosexuals ? You see, Mr. Emannuel, YOU are the exact hypocrite and bigot that you tell others not to tolerate. YOU Sir, are just another phoney Chicago Hypocrite Politician, like your buddy in the White House.

Holy cow!

I just spent two hours waiting in line to get some awesome Chick-Fil-A's in Schaumburg. I counted four marked Schaumburg squad cars, two Community Service cars and two marked Auxilliary Police squad cars detailed there, for traffic control. There were orange cones set up directing the flow of traffic and a very efficient ordering system setup by Chick-Fil-A's.

An employee told me it has been out of control like this since early morning. This will be their busiest day in company history.

Rahm and Obama can choke on their Communist, Satanist Agenda!

I never had Chick-Fil-A's before today. It tasted delicious, service was impeccable and the prices were reasonable. I will go out of my way now to patronize them, although I seldom to never consume fast food.

GoodBYE Rahm!

Rahm Emmanuel is FINISHED!

Rahm is more worried about pushing sexually deviate behavior down Chicagoan's throats; than he is about Chicago being designated the most dangerous global city in the world!

Anyway, like I was sayin', Chick-fil-A is the fruit of the homosexual-free chicken farm. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, Chick-fil-A kabobs, Chick-fil-A creole, Chick-fil-A gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple Chick-fil-A, lemon Chick-fil-A, coconut Chick-fil-A, pepper Chick-fil-A, Chick-fil-A soup, Chick-fil-A stew, Chick-fil-A salad, Chick-fil-A and potatoes, Chick-fil-A burger, Chick-fil-A sandwich. That- that's about it.

Lets hope Chicago is not destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah.

They are only two percent of the population but you would never know it by all the press they get. The majority of people think same sex relationships are wrong, evidenced by the turn-out at Chik-Fil-A today, with no help or coverage from the media.

One more thought. Why do they call themselves gay? They don't seem very happy to me.

Anonymous said...

like the one guy said
if same sex marriage IS rahm's view
that's fine but he shouldn't say it's "chicago's view"
also the one knucklehead whineing
about seeing a lot of hispanics in the line
maybe they have the value's as the owner and that's fine
whineing about how they were a target of discrimation not to long ago
this isn't about discrimation at all
it's about how someone's view on marriage beliefs PERIOD
if mine and your conflict so be it
bt that doesn't mean i'm discrimating against some one
it's just mine beliefs

To Police Against Huckabee:

Huckabee pardoned Maurice Clemmons because Maurice found god. Maurice was in prison for murder in Arkansas. After his pardon he moved to Washington state. He killed five police officers who were in a coffee shop. Huckabee is a born again minister who believes there is good in everyone. Huckabee is an idiot bible thumper. And he ran for president as a republican and got close to being the candidate.
