Customers line up for Chick-fil-A appreciation day

Customers are lining up to eat at Chick-fil-A restaurants across the Tennessee Valley. Supporters of Chick-fil-A are encouraging customers to eat at the company's restaurants Wednesday, declaring a "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day."

The restaurant chain became the subject of controversy after company president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press last month that his company supported the "biblical definition of a family."

"Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was not created by Chick-fil-A. We appreciate all of our customers and are glad to serve them at any time," (lying sack of chicken shit) said Steve Robinson, Executive Vice President, Marketing, Chick-fil-A Inc. "Our goal is simple: to provide great food, genuine hospitality and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A."

In response to comments, gay rights organizations have called for boycotts of the restaurant.

17. I still think this is a temporary bump.

And I still can't imagine why anyone would enjoy a piece of chicken fried in pickle juice with a side of pickle. Gag.

3. Heard about this on Huckabee RW radio show. Pukes

He was going from city to city getting people's responses:

"They're lined up around the block. It's a beautiful thing."

No, it's not a beautiful thing, you bigots.

Geeze DB, usually when you turn on the lights the cockroaches run.

Ever since Obama was elected, it seems people coming out of the cracks and wearing their bigotry with pride.

14. Instead of boycotting Chik-fil-A, why not turn them into GLBT hangout spots?
