    Just an observation, but the Chick-fil-A lines are spilling out into the main traffic today. This has turned into a huge boon of business for the guy.

    I haven't read the entire thread, but is someone saying others should not be allowed to boycott? Because I have zero problem with that. I, and I suspect most, have a problem when the government (council woman, mayors, governors) starts getting involved and pulling for the removal of the restaraunts, or threatening not to allow the restaraunts in their cities/wards/etc. That is the infringement on free speach that most concerns me.

    No, but some people are confusing "consequences of free speech" as meaning government intervention. There are legal consequences to free speech. For instance if two gay men are dressed outlandishly and legally skimpy, the consequence to their act of "free speech" could be loss of support from a heterosexual because of it. Likewise the consequence of free speech from Chick-fil-A is some people are boycotting it legally.

    I agree with you there.

    That buttered bun, tasty pickles and warm crisp filet of chicken is going to win this battle.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    The irony of this whole thing is that this has energized a nation of obese people to eat more unhealthy fast food.

    I just got back from Chick fil A, and the war has been won....the one here in Logan is about a year old and we go there about 2 times a month. Today the line was ALMOST out the door, and the drive thru lane was packed. Parking had spilled over to the ShopKo lot. Took us a while to get our order placed and delivered. They must have run out of cheese and bacon as my club sandwich was missing those items. A camera man was there taking video, and got the crowd to do a little pro chick fil A chant for his camera. It appears that business is booming....

    Breaking News....
    Wendy's, McDonalds, KFC, Burger King, Arbys, Pizza Hut, and several others have just come out against SSM.....

    Truth rings hollow in empty heads.

    Funny...I go to CFA quite often and have been there three times this week yet have not seen lines pouring out of the building. To me it just looks like business as usual.

    Today was supposed to be "Chick-fil-A" supporting day, so probably some were able to rally a bit easier than others. The supporting day was an event sponsored by fans and not the restraunt itself which is most likely why it didn't happen as much in some areas.
