'Chick-fil-A restaurants become rallying points for supportersBy the CNN Wire Staff
updated 4:04 PM EDT, Wed August 1, 2012

The controversy came about after an interview with the fast food restaurant chain's president and COO, Dan Cathy, appeared in The Baptist Press on July 16 and he weighed in with his views on family.

"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit," Cathy said. "We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that."

On a Facebook page Huckabee created announcing the event, more than 620,000 people said they would participate.

"The goal is simple: Let's affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1," wrote Huckabee, a former pastor.

Lines snaked around a Chick-fil-A in Dallas, CNN affiliate WFAA reported. Patrons packed a Chick-fil-A in Smyrna, Georgia. A food court with a Chick-fil-A was flooded in Laurel, Mississippi.

On Facebook, fans posted photos of themselves holding bags emblazoned with the restaurant chain's bright red logo.

Edwin Guzman told CNN's iReport that he wanted about 30 minutes for his lunch at a "crazy packed" Chick-fil-A in Clarksville, Tennessee.

"It's really hard to find people or leaders that stand for something good and stay firm," he said of the restaurant chain.

In Barboursville, West Virginia, Brett Walker said, "the scene at Chick-fil-A seemed like a massive silent protest."

Walker told iReport he chose to eat at the restaurant Wednesday "in support of free speech" and waited 40 minutes to receive his order.

Have you seen demonstrations at restaurants in your area?

A police officer directed traffic as cars jammed the area, and employees walked car to car in the drive-thru line to take orders, he said.

Roger Cates told iReport he had lunch at Chick-fil-A in Owensboro, Kentucky, and planned to return with his family for dinner. Political leaders who have criticized the chain, like the mayors of Boston and Chicago, are hypocritical, he said.

"I think it is ironic that the so-called forces of tolerance and inclusion are calling for the exclusion of Chick-fil-A from cities simply because of the beliefs of their chairman.... People that disagree with me have a right to their opinion, and I have a right to mine," he said....

In the Atlanta area, CNN affiliate WSB warned of traffic delays around Chick-fil-As.

Support extended beyond the restaurant chain. Some Wendy's franchises in North and South Carolina weighed in Wednesday morning with signs outside their restaurants saying, "We Stand With Chick-fil-A."

"Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we're considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant," Huckabee said on the Facebook page, adding that neither the company nor the Cathy family was involved in proposing or promoting the event.

Jennings is right about what? < From the information I posted >.
There is NOTHING RIGHT about Kevin Jenning's school teachings or his advocacy of NAMBLA, which promotes the legalization of sexual abuse of young boys by older men.
Do you agree with this sexual abuse being legalized ?
And taught by a sexually perverse deviant ?
If you do, you are just as mentally perverted as Jennings.
Didn't read the link. Not interested in Hannity being right, wrong or failed. This is MY view. And the debate isn't about Hannity. It's about your hypocrisy toward "molester enabler" and KKK admiration on The Republican side, while denying The Democrats Klan Members and PEDOPHILES.
Yeah, The KKK Byrd got buried with full "honors" via a speech given by the "upstanding" William Jefferson Clinton -
Downplaying Byrd's role as a Klan Member.
The Byrd just joined to gain respect so he could go on to become a Senator, or some prep school palabra.
"Jennings is right"?? And you're a disgrace.
<quoted text>
So now we're in racism history land? And you guys just seem to love Byrd.

So how about MLK calling out the radical racist right(i just loved posting that in the comments on The Blaze site. seems Becklings are worse than FOXbots when presented with anything that shows that their idol is lying.) Though that's one history lesson that seems to be forgotten 2 seconds after I mention it.

As for the Jennings farce....I'm not of the leap of faith crowd. You have your right wing take and I have the truth. You can throw crap at me all day long, and much like you will to me, I'll just ignore it. I might as well since nothing will ever come of it....Hannity/FOX failed.

Anyway, if Jennings was all that you wingnuts claim he is, he'd already be in jail. You know, just like all those perverts that Arpaio won't lock up who haven't done anything wrong.[?]

So tell us...are you an Arpaio fan? Seems to me if you are.....you're supporting the continued abuse of Latino children.

Obama is currently running a campaign ad saying he has a plan to ‘pay down the debt in a balanced way.’
He has made this claim in public remarks as well.
But his updated budget—submitted two weeks after the legal deadline—reveals just how dramatically false this claim is.
These ads ought to be pulled down.
