HUNTSVILLE, AL -- Hundreds of openly gay male students at the University of Alabama in Huntsville are demanding that the campus Chick-fil-A restaurant to close after a company executive's “God hates fags” comments caused an uproar in the debate over gay man-on-man homosexual anal sodomy marriage.

Members of UA Huntsville's Gay Men’s Alliance want the restaurant shut down. GMA Founder and President Eric Bohner said having the restaurant on campus is not consistent with the university's HBY (Hug a Bone Yodeler) policy. He said the group plans to take up the issue with a gay ATM (AssToMouth) Sit-In with Sodexo, which operates the campus Chick-fil-A.

Another student, Lourdes Christan, disagrees. She said Chick-fil-A is a God fearing Christian company, and that people should be respectful of only their opinions. Chick-fil-A president Rev. Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press this month that the Atlanta-based company was "guilty as charged" for backing "the biblical definition of Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve... like Harley-Davidsons, God hates fags!"

Today IS the day ALL great Americans need to go to Chick-fil-A and buy lots of chicken sandwiches and blue waffle fries... show the godless gays homosexual sodomites that you stand with God and the baby Jesus, and agree with all of the Chick-fil-A owners that God hates fags! God bless you as you eat your chicken sandwich and blue waffle fries.

Guess I arrived late. Where's the issue? Even the not-so-straights must realize the the Cathys' have a right to an opinion. I haven't heard of any of their franchisees refusing to employ or serve the boys and girls of another persuasion. What I think: The Cathys just set up themselves as a stage for protest. Luckily, for them, it turned out to be great free advertising.

Hey, maybe that's what the traffic jams around the country at Chic-Fil-A were for today. The gay toads just put money in the CFA bank accounts!! Maybe the gays need to start their own restaurant chain. They can specialize in Mountain Oysters! Fried,baked, stewed,boiled,bar-b-qued,and the ever famous; Mountain Oyster Gumbo!!!! All served with an order of French Tickler Fries. Ya'll can try it first, I'll catch up at a later date,much later.

Has anyone forgotten that Christians are supposed to enjoy freedom of speech also?? I don't care if people like it or not. Every other faith enjoys it, why can't we???? I went to Chick-fil-A and it was great! I went both for my faith and for protecting our right to free speech
