I doubt he meant to cause this fussaria, but I bet he's smiling all the way to the bank, at least for now.

Lets not forget that while chain-food is junk, fried chicken is not junk.

NOTICE: I've long since lost interest in seeing what goes on in this thread. However, I feel obligated to tell you of the name change in light of the fact that this thread has gone on for longer than expected and it is apparently the only one of its kind. It is now the Official Chick-fil-A Thread.

This thing has shown that Mike Huckabee still has a lot of pull in the party. I still think he would have walked away with the nomination of he ran, but he seems happier making $ at Fox.

Sadly so. A rerun of Mitt vs. Huck in the primaries would've been quite entertaining, and possibly yielded a better result than what the party is currently facing.

Faceless cowards, even last f'ing one of them. A bunch of buffed up gays should hit the joint and hold hands together, and maybe kiss a few times for emphasis. They should select as their fare whatever is the loss leader offering of the day while doing it.

They're not faceless; their faces are literally their profile pictures. Smiley Just little things that make me hate the world more, but hey, as a gay man, you have a lot to hate. I try not to let it get to me.

Apparently the appreciation day saw record sales for Chick-fil-A - a boon for them to be certain, but time will tell how long term sales are affected.

Meanwhile, at KFC...

Chick-fil-A doesn't typically engage in loss leader marketing.  The closest they come to that is with the coupons in their annual cow calendar, which you have to buy.

If gays want to have a really weird Chick-fil-A protest, they need to camp out at one of the new store openings with rainbow tents and get the coupons for lots of free food given out to the first 100 customers.  Having 100 obvious LGBTers get the vouchers would definitely raise a few eyebrows.

I'm embarassed as an American that people are standing in line for over an hour, to receive a synthetic god awful chicken sandwich for the name of "free speech" (homophobia for 95% of the customers).

Actively helping a business by buying it's products is really not the same thing as supporting it's right to free speech.

Let's say you have a neighbor who runs a lemonade stand. You have never bought any lemonade from the stand. One day, this neighbor decides to go on a protest against high taxes. He is arrested, despite not having done anything wrong other than voicing his opinion. You may not agree with him, but you believe that he has the right to voice that opinion. So you decide to buy some lemonade from him.

Doesn't make much sense does it?

I realise that the libertarians (and perhaps even liberals?) who participate in "Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day" have good intentions, but there are more effective ways to support free speech, such as writing to your representative or local government, or perhaps running for office.

For the past two days, I had lunch at KFC; I actually never was big on Chick-fil-A, the recent controversies nonwithstanding....The chicken at KFC is better too, IMO.

If only all these "devout" Christians could gather together to work at a food bank or something, like Jesus actually told them to do. But I guess it's easier to buy disgusting chicken as a way of sticking it to the faggots instead.

On the bright side, these fat old bigots stuffing themselves full of greasy fried "food" should speed up their deaths so that we can finally live in a country not ruled by hatred and close-mindedness.

Have you given business to the companies who support gay marriage and gay rights but have been boycotted by the religious right in solidarity with their freedom of speech?

Am I the only gay who doesn't care that much about the outcome here? It's just like those referenda, only it's purely symbolic. Of course loads of people oppose SSM and will stand for companies that agree with them. Of course CfA isn't going to budge in this issue. Let them have their Chik-Fil-A party and photo ops. This is one Dem issue where I know we're winning in the long term.

The sandwiches are pretty good, but waiting in line more than 5 minutes for one is idiotic...
