More Chick-Fil-A Protest News: So, We’re Still Doing This, Then?

On The Corner, Andrew Johnson brings us the story of Chick-Fil-A protests at the University of New Mexico. A little late to the party, huh guys?

Chick-Fil-A Reaches Detente with One Gay Leader

Sometimes the road to understanding is paved with waffle fries. Gay activist Shane Windmeyer lead protests against Chick-Fil-A over their support of traditional marriage. Now he’s going to football games with Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy: Yes, after months of personal phone calls, text messages and in-person meetings, I am coming out in a new way, as a friend of Chick-fil-A’s More …

Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, Part II: 12 Days

We now pause in our countdown to Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, Part II to appreciate the subject of Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, Part I: Intense national media and social media attention — much of it negative — was heaped on the chain three months ago, after President Dan Cathy told a religious publication that his company was “guilty as charged” in supporting More …

Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, Part II: 14 Days

Thank goodness that’s over. The last debate was tonight, and based on the commentary I read on Twitter (I can’t bear to watch political jibber-jabber anymore; you always know exactly what each candidate is going to say, yet they always manage to say it in a much more irritating way than you can imagine), it sounds like both candidates were More …

Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, Part II: 15 Days and Counting

So it’s come to this: What the country needs more than anything is an election day that’s just like a day when the normally silent throngs of hard-working, God-fearing people who make America tick all decided to go out and buy fried chicken together. If the lines look like this outside the polling places, election day should be a breeze. More …

Your Go-To Source for All Chick-Fil-A-Related Information

In an effort to become for Chick-Fil-A what the E! network is for the Kardashians (except without the draining of America’s collective IQ), I continue devote an exorbitantly high percentage of my output to the fried chicken chain. Today, Bill McGurn examines the latest volley in the war on Truett Cathy’s gift to mankind: Now the controversy is back, after More …

Chick-Fil-A Don’t Swing That Way

Counting on the mainstream media to produce accurate reporting about Chick-Fil-A is like… counting on the mainstream media to produce accurate reporting about anything else, really. Last week, there was a widely-reported story that Chick-Fil-A had caved to pressure and agreed to stop supporting pro-traditional marriage organizations. Turns out that story, like many widely-reported stories, was just flat-out untrue. Contrary More …

Did Chick-Fil-A Just Cave?

I’m not ready to quite believe it, but I need to hear some clarification from the company tout suite: The Christian-rooted fast food restaurant agreed to stop funding groups such as Focus on the Family that oppose same-sex marriage in a meeting with the Chicago politician who had been blocking the company’s move there. Chick-fil-A wrote a letter to Alderman More …

How to Make Blowback

Americans love a winner, but we also love the underdog. We are The Man who loves sticking it to The Man. Because of this weird paradox of national character, protest movements find a lot of fertile ground here. Revolution is how this whole America thing got started in the first place, so we tend cut revolutionaries a lot more slack than they More …

Why You Should Support Chick-Fil-A

Still not sure what to think about the whole Chick-Fil-A brouhaha? Let’s ask for guidance from the bed intruder guy: (Courtesy of The Anchoress, and bless her heart for that.) Whether you’re an activist or apathetic, whether you’re gay or straight, whether you love succulent fried chicken parts or you’re an incomprehensible weirdo, you need to get out and support More …

Religious Battles to Come

The Center for Law and Religion Forum see foreshadowing of future clashes in the Chick-Fil-A gay marriage dust-up: The controversy does reveal something ominous, though. As Robert George and others have written, the coming clash over religious freedom in America will likely involve sexuality: abortion, contraception, pornography, same-sex marriage, and so on. On sexuality, progressives seem increasingly unable even to More …

Chick-Fil-A-Ramma-Lamma-Ding-Dong

Holy crap, I can’t believe we’ve hearing so much about Chick-Fil-A lately. Not that I mind–it makes my usual daydreaming about Chick-Fil-A seem less weird. To sum up: the mayors of Chicago and Boston have said they don’t want to allow Chick-Fil-A to open restaurants in their cities because the president of the company has said he and the company More …

If This is Going to Become an All-Chick-Fil-A Blog, I’m Going to Want a Sponsorship

And it just might, if liberal zealots keep trying to make Chick-Fil-A hatred their test for ideological purity. This time it’s Boston–home to great patriots and freedom fighters–deciding to turn its righteous ire on purveyors of quality fried chicken and milkshakes: … the sexual revolution is now well into its totalitarian phase. Boston mayor Thomas Menino gives us another particularly telling example: Mayor Menino More …

People Calling for Boycott of Chick-Fil-A Have Clearly Never Tasted Chick-Fil-A

There is a line that can be crossed by protesters where they go from being merely a nuisance to being a genuine threat to civil society and everything that is good and pure on God’s green earth. Rarely is that line more clear than in the calls of pro-gay-marriage activists to boycott Chick-Fil-A. Creative Minority Report notes recent incidents: Actor More …

Obviously, These People Have Never Eaten at Chick-fil-a

Students at both Northeastern University and NYU have been opposing the location of Chick-fil-a’s on campus, saying that the fast food chain is supposedly “anti-gay” because of their donations to Focus On the Family, Exodus International, and other organizations that liberal crybabies like to complain about. This again highlights why liberals should never be allowed to run anything. Anyone who More …

They Can Pry My Waffle Fries Out of My Cold, Dead Hands

I’m willing to put up with a lot, but when they start going after Chick-fil-a, baby, it’s on! Over the past month, several progressive-activist blogs have waged an ugly war against Chick-fil-A. The company’s alleged atrocity: One of its independent outlets in Pennsylvania donated some sandwiches and brownies to a marriage seminar run by the Pennsylvania Family Institute, which happens More …
