    I have to drive passed a Chick-Fil-a in a suburb of Chicago. I have literally never seen it so busy as it was the last few days. It's insane! You would think it was opening day!

    The mayor of Boston has already backtracked. Chicago is turning it's streets over to the nation of islam.

    Might be true, but the Chick-Fil-A that I drive by has been booming. I wonder how many others are booming also.

    I personally support gay marriage and believe what the man said was wrong, but the left's stance and attacks on him make me support him. I will definitely be joining in on Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day August 1st!

    I started eating at Chick-Fil-A about a year ago. Never knew how good their chicken was before.
    The one thing I hate about the place is that it is always packed.

    They have always been closed on Sundays as far as I know, they usually have a sign explaining why.

    Its always been apparent that the owners have "Christian values", I am surprised it took liberals this long to go after them.

    What he said was not even anti gay, he said he supported traditional marriage. Which means that if you support traditional marriage you are anti gay. Which is pretty much how the left feels.

    How well do companies do that support gayness? How about JC Penney who got Ellen Degeneres as their spokesperson? She's not any more because her much promoted position didn't last more than 30 days, but how well did she work out?

    As much as I would like to support them, I never have liked Chick-Fil-A.

    Why would you want to take a smile off someone's face?
