What Are You Doing for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day?

Members and staff: It’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. What are you doing about it, besides maybe tweeting? Will you be heading to the fried chicken giant’s Crystal City, Va., storefront or looking for the D.C. food truck? Or are you starting to get burned out, aware that recess is around the corner and there’s a tax reform vote or whatever?

Need motivation to show your support? Not to worry. Presidential candidate and Quran-burning pastor Terry Jones is on your side.

Jones, who announced his candidacy for the highest elected office in America in November, will show his support for Chick-fil-A President and CEO Dan Cathy’s anti-same-sex-marriage stance today in the best way he knows how: eating at a Chick-fil-A location in the Magnolia Mall in Florence, S.C.

Members of the pastor’s political party “Stand Up America” will join Jones in supporting Cathy’s stance by eating at a different Chick-Fil-A location in Gainsville, Fla., where Jones serves as a pastor at the Dove World Outreach Center. (The party has seven main points to save America, including deporting all illegal immigrants and legalizing industrial hemp.)

For those not aware of the fried-chicken/gay marriage wars, Chick-fil-A has come under a flurry of controversy after Cathy said he was opposed to same-sex marriage on a radio show.

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is about,” Cathy said on the “Ken Coleman Show.”

So tell us, HOH fans: What are you doing for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day?

    Somehow I don’t think your article would be as lighthearted if it was about showing support for a barbeque stand owner in the 1950s who, when quizzed about donating a considerable amount of his profits to the Ku Klux Klan, said “Darned right I do. Having all these n******s running around wanting to marry white folk is against God’s will.” The issue isn’t Mr. Cathy’s beliefs. It’s that he provides a substantial amount of funding from the profits of Chick-fil-A to hate groups whose only purpose is to deny citizens their civil rights.

      Why is there always a comparison to civil rights for blacks when we talk about marriage equality? I’m black and when I walk into a room, everyone knows immeidately what who I am. Unless a person goes out of their way to share their sexual orientation, no one knows if they are gay or straight… and the gay lobby wonders why they have such trouble winning over African Americans… #thestruggleisnotthesame

      Puh-leeze. Of course, it’s about his views. Anybody who doesn’t agree with you should be censored. That’s the mantra of the Left. Secondly, what hate-filled groups? Do you mean any group that doesn’t agree with your ideology? And lastly, Soros is the biggest hatemonger on the planet. He funds MoveOn.org. Who is a bigger danger to society than those kooks?
