    We praise God for the support Chilk-fil-A had for traditional marriage. May the Lord bless the business beyond human comprehension in Jesus name.

    Went to Paramus NJ. store. Got there late (almost 9pm) and the line was still a mile long! The people were calmly waiting and no one was leaving. I did not wait, but will return to eat there in support of the Cathy family. I was glad to see that the people that turned out were from all walks of like. The whole scene boosted my hope for America!

    Chick-fil-A gave to causes that opposed redefining marriage.

    Cathy said marriage was between a man and a woman.

    The marriage redefinition movement went crazy. Politicians tried to get some homosexual campaign contributions by saying they'd ban Chick-fil-A, knowing they couldn't. SSM advocates announced a boycott.

    Huckabee said let's counter all this with a Chick-fil-A appreciation day.

    Yesterday, throngs of customers lined up all around the country to support Cathy/ Chick-fil-A.

    Homosexual reporters in the mainstream media can spin it any way they want. Those are the facts. And they are undisputed.

    As for the opposition (gay opponents) protest, this Friday, I thank all Chick-fil-A operations should close down until the ridiculous “Kissing In" perversion event, in protest of CFA's stands on marriage, is over. This is just another form of bullying by the so-call victims of bullying, opposition that should be part of the local authority's jurisdiction. If gay groups are planning to disrupt the restaurant owner’s business by lewd or sexual behavior, the chain owners has the right and should call the police to prevent from happening. Last time I check intentionally disrupting the owner's business is either a misdemeanor or a crime. In any event, conduct deemed harassment, unlawful conduct or unlawful disruption of your business should be reported to the local authorities.

    Please SPREAD the word be for it’s too late… tweet it to a willing friend, or call your local CFA, let them know their options to protect their business and customers. They are innocent bystanders caught in a cross fire… ARE YOU WITH ME, make that call or pass on this message to others! Also, post your thoughts on the issue. I thank we need about 100 people to make that call, help divert an embarrassing and ugly event for CFA owners and their employees… will you help????????????

    Starting tomorrow morning, Fri at 9am, I will attempt to call as many CFA restaurants as I possibly can, warning the owner to be prepared for the unexpected , and don't hesitate to call their local police in preparation for a Gay protest, using bullying tactics and causing disruption of their business and scaring customers away. This is what I'm planning to do before going in to work tomorrow...

    Translation:
    Thank you, thank you, thank you! If all the Christians of the world give themselves the hand... God bless America!

    Thank for reminding us that we are not just standing up for ourselves Jean-Charles; we are also standing up for all those around the world who were denied a voice by their corrupt governments.

    Merci Bouquet

    @Rover "CFA gave money to the FRC that wants Ugandans to kill gay people via new laws. That is why I don't support FRC or their friends." This is a strong accusation you've posted, but no proof. Where are you getting your information. Who is FRC? If you cannot provide proof of what you are saying, then you shouldn't say it. Otherwise you come off like you're just making up stuff because you're mad. Where's your proof?

    The FRC (Family Research Council) does not want Ugandans to kill homosexuals.

    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/right-now/2010/06/family_research_council_explai.html

    "FRC does not support the Uganda bill, and does not support the death penalty for homosexuality -- nor any other penalty which would have the effect of inhibiting compassionate pastoral, psychological and medical care and treatment for those who experience same-sex attractions or who engage in homosexual conduct."

    Wow. That is one of the most depressing sets of photographs I have ever seen. So much hate.

    Love of good morals and opposition to corrupt morals is what I see in those pictures.

    If you see that as hate its because you can't distinguish a principled moral stand from hatred.

    Thanks for Chick-Fil-A for bringing this issue to the national stage in such a big way. Far more people did NOT go to Chick-Fil-A than did, and all of them are now talking about it. And, it seems, the sentiment still falls in the direction of marriage equality on the bigger scale. So Mr. Cathy has done us a huge favor, and I hope, in the future, the children who will grow up in a better and more equitable world won't feel too ashamed of their parents who thought that supporting bigotry was a good thing.

    bman,

    The belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman, and that people should be free to say that out loud, is not "hate".

    Stop trying to silence your opposition with intolerant attacks on them.

    The pictures are of people that are frankly offended that people like you are offended.

    In this debate, those who preach tolerance – are the least tolerant of all.

    Vienna:

    The bigotry notation in your post, used often by gay militants to prevent people and their families from distinguishing and “discriminating” from right and wrong behavior, has expired... From this day forward, I urge all people of faith and none, to never be persuaded by those clinging to the "I'm the victim" status with falsehood in order to brainwash others to give up their strong held beliefs to what is right and just...
    The political terminology of “gay equality” is nothing more than a hidden persona of those ideas and behaviors of the world that is deviant and dangerous and should always be condemned.

    Vienna:

    It is indeed a remarkable kind of faith which concludes after Chick Fil A and 33 straight electoral defeats that same sex marriage is somehow winning.

    It is losing, horrendously, and it will cost Obama his Presidency this November.

    See you on election day.

    There has been recently a series of boycotts by christians against american companies for their gay pro stance, but once gays had the nerve to speak out a/b how they are being demonized & vilified by a christian company, all hell broke loose.

    Why are so many christians so obsessed with the private relationships of gays that they can't leave us alone?? We want to marry the partner we love & it is none of your business who we love & it is none of gays business who heterosexuals choose to love as well.

    Please in god's name stop using the bible & religion to hide behind views that are prejudice & discriminatory. We all have to live in this country together & show respect for each other's relationships even though we might not personally agree with one's choice of partner, husband, or wife.

    We Americans simply cannot allow government to use it's power against someone for their personal views. I. This case, i happen to agree with Chik Fil A that the definition of marriage should remain as it is. But what if he were pushing in favor of homosexual marriage and the government said he couldn't open a store there? I'd be equally outraged. Our country was built on freedom of belief and expression and we cannot allow government to usurp those rights!

    There are ~120,000 legally married gay families in the USA now. In what ways has your marriage been damaged because of those other marriages?

    L@ 118
    Your hypothesis is a non-issue since your scenario will never happen in our life time... A gay business that caters to 3% of the population is a non-issue to the size of CFA... A gay managed franchise business would be an extremely rare phenomena. Don't mistake all those sympathizers as part of the LGBT population, there is no equal playing field in numbers or competition at issue... Also, don't mistaken tolerance meaning acceptance of homosexuality or gay issues in our communities, cities, or states. The fact of the matter, homosexuality will never be acceptable by masses, this is a reality that gays and their supporters must deal with or change their ways. The pushing of the gay agenda down their throats, only lessens the masses tolerance...

    MGC @121:

    Pseudo-marriage is the destruction of marriage itself, and its replacement with a bit of social engineering genius, Federal Friendship With Benefits.

    Now it isn;t too hard to see the incredible devastation of the rights of parents, believers, and most especially of children, in those states which have fallen to the legal and political assault of the pseudo-marriage movement.

    Here are a few of the interesting effects of a pseudo-marriage law recently defeated in Maine, for those who wonder what it would be like if their state made the same mistake, and allowed their children to be indoctrinated accordingly in public schools:

    1. Husbands are not male
    2. Wives are not female
    3. Fathers are not male
    4. Mothers are not female
    5. Brides are not male
    6. Grooms are not female

    Now let me say that if the above is not enough for you, if you are prepared to allow your children to be indoctrinated in the six insanities above, then vote with GCM.

    We'll take the other side of the question.

    Re Gio # 117 “Why are so many Christians so obsessed with the private relationships of gays that they can't leave us alone?”

    I am sufficiently libertarian that I pay little or no attention to the private relationships of gays. It is when someone tries to change the underlying basis of family law by redefining and repurposing marriage so that it is de-gendered and totally disconnected with procreation that I become engaged. It is when someone tries to curtain free speech and free enterprise to advance a PC agenda that I become engaged. California has a legal structure where gay families have everything but the word marriage, and that is considered intolerably hateful by the LGBT lobby. This is not a live and let live attitude. Redefining marriage in California isn’t their final goal. Redefining marriage in the whole U.S. isn’t their final goal. The final goal is crushing anyone who doesn’t endorse the LGBT agenda. That means the schools will be the next battleground. If they can crush Dan Cathy, whom will they try to crush next?

    The part of my post you disagreed with was actually a quote taken from "I Know You Will Censor This" in post 94.

    Except for the case of mistaken identity, your comment was an excellent reply to that blogger and others of that camp.

    You are aware that Saudi Arabia, which sells oil to the US, legalized the public execution of homosexuals. Thus whenever you fill up your car's gas tank, you are funding the mass murder of homosexuals you rail against. A truly righteous person would bike to work.

    Just something to think about.

    Proponents of same-sex "marriage" fail to mention what would follow in their wake. Schools will be compelled to teach same sex unions as good , normal, and acceptable, and morally equal to normal marriages. Children from normal families will be indoctrinated and encouraged to consider homosexuality as a positive alternative. But not one child so taught sprins forth from homosexuality. It is a biological impossibility. This contestt is about our children's and this society's future course. It is not hatefull to understand cause and effect . It is not hateful to laud marriage between a man and a woman as the fountain of life and strength to all nations. If same sex "marrige" never

    If same sex "marriage" dies as a notion, life will go on as it provides nothing essential to any people. If it were to take root, our children will be recruited into homosexual acceptnce and experimentation. Opposition to ihomosexuality will be punishable even as Catholic adoption agencies are denied contracts or funding for their work for refusing to support adoption by homosexuals. This is about far more than many understand. It's time to stand tall for marriage even as we ought humble ourselves before God for the terrible tolerance of fornication, cohabitation, pornography, abortion and other plagues we witness but are largely silent about. We need to repent and pray. Then we might wonder in awe at what the living God and Redeemer might do!

    When asked Mr. Cathy was condemmed as hateful when he gave his opinion. I support marriage between a man and a women but if others feel differently so be it but don't slam me for my beliefs. As Gio # 117 expressed above you are right it is none of our business who you want to marry so why do you go to such lengths to make others feel the way you do. Mr. Cathy should be granted the same freedom of speech as you enjoy. This isn't hate.
