Pensacola Goes Whole Hog Eating Mor Chik N

It appears Pensacolians have no beef with the chain. Kinda thought so.

Chick-fil-A supporters flock to Pensacola-area stores

Chick-fil-A restaurants across Northwest Florida and the country are overflowing this afternoon with customers showing support for the company president’s stance on gay marriage.

At Pensacola’s Nine Mile Road location, the line stretched through the restaurant and out the door, where at least 50 people waited to get in. The drive-through line wrapped around the building and down the street. Employees are handing out water bottles to people standing in line.

Traffic is backed up around all area Chick-fil-A locations.

I especially liked what one young man said when he sent along a picture (included in the article) of his Ft. Walton Beach Chik-fil-A to the local fish wrap:

Arc J. Thames of Pace took this photo at a Chic-fil-A on Beal Parkway in Fort Walton Beach. The building was surrounded with cars, and people were parking in other parking lots and walking over.

I’m a Christian, but I also have close friends that are gay. For me this is more about a person’s right, no matter who they are, to be able to speek freely. It’s our right and one of the reasons I’m proud to be an American,”

Thames said in submitting this photo. / Arc J. Thomas/Special to the News Journal

You betcha, kiddo.

ths update: Self righteous, ill-mannered ASS example in 3…2…1…:

Oh, gosh. You beat up on the DRIVE THROUGH GIRL. WHAT a BASTION BASTARD of ALL that is RIGHT and MASCULINE you are and a FINE EXAMPLE of the LIBERAL LEFT.

Thank you for making our point, douchebag.

Looking at this weasel’s YouTube channel, he’s got several young children and lives in Tucson, out there by Ebola. THIS is how MINDLESS these idiots are. He’s getting eaten alive in the comments and all I did was look at his own stuff to figure out who he was and where. How about if someone ripped one of his sweet little boys working the drive through at In-N-Out like that, just out of the blue, for something they disagreed about with the owner (who lives in California, for God’s sake). He’d go BATSHIT BERSERK.

Don’t they THINK before they run their hateful jibs and POST them for the world to see how CLEVER they are?

Never mind. I answered that.

Bingley Update:
Poor widdle douchnozzle, I mean Brave Valiant Rights Avenger, removed his video because, er, people rightly told him what a DOUCHENOZZLE he was and the lovely girl was properly deluged by marriage offers as a result of her grace and class.

But once you post something it’s forever…

ths Update Redux: From Twitchy, some Chik-fil-A Day Liberal Love. Lots of these dickweeds probably’ll wish they were as bold as “beat-up-the-drive-thru-girl-guy” after seeing his adventures, when they just settled for badass “hope you choke on your fat laden fried chicken, homo haters” Tweets.

    Is the schadenfreude for the hysterical thought police separate?

  2. JeffS says:

    No, aelfheld, that’s gravy.

  3. Laura says:

    I stopped eating at Chick-fil-A because they stopped making their Banana Pudding Milkshake! Sonsabitches never told me it was for a limited time! And “limited time” is pretty relative, isn’t it?

  4. tree hugging sister says:

    Limited is, as limited does, laura. You should probably check next time and that way your tender (chicken or otherwise) feelings don’t get hurt.

    I dodn’t get over there today, having my hair on fire in other ways, but here’s what I left on the the fishwrap’s site (and it seems to have gone missing ) in response to one “Christian” woman’s saying, “Time for Christians to stand up”:

    Christians are fine, but it should be Americans as a WHOLE. I’m not beholden to any particular relgious group and am firmly FOR the right of gay couples to marry legally, HOWEVER. I am 100% OPPOSED to using this bastardized “civil rights” gambit to attempt to FORCE churches and those with deeply held religious beliefs to compromise and KOWTOW to the liberal left and the gay advocate agendists. My husband and I were married in a civil union in a courthouse, because we didn’t have the time, nor, quite frankly, the inclination to go through the stringent Roman Catholic requirements for a church wedding. We KNEW that and ACCEPTED it. “Thems the RULES.” I no more would have called them “bigots” because they wouldn’t cut me a huss, when I knew full well my courthouse wedding was legal and binding. This entire exercise is an effort to completely subvert the influence of the major religions and their freedom from oversight embodied in the Constitution. Even though you welcome them, nurture them, cure thier ills, succor their wounds, feed them ~ but just won’t perform your sacred ceremonies at their behest, if they fling “BIGOT” and “RACIST” and “HATER” enough at you, perhaps you will crumble and lose those very things that made your beliefs what they were. When there is nothing intrinsically hateful about them. Or you. As Americans, we are guaranteed a bulwark against that assault by the Constitution and they are cheapening the very words they use, especially in the states ~ unlike our own ~ where they DO have the right to legally marry, as, again, I believe they should. THAT’S why we should stand with Chik-fil-A. It’s not AS Christians, but because you might BE one. But surely you’re an American who wants his opinion respected and disagreements kept civil.

    I didn’t manage to get there – I can’t leave the parents that long – but… a significant portion of Fort Myers filled in for me.

    Let’s just hope it keeps up. I’ll certainly drop by in the future, when I can (as I have in the past).

  6. Kathy Kinsley says:

    Oh, yeah… and just FYI, here’s where I am.

    I don’t think the state should have anything to do with marriage. (FOR ANYONE) Civil unions, maybe – if people feel a need to register with the state. But marriage is a sacred thing among most religions. States should butt out. And I’ve attended a gay marriage (in a church that recognizes them). And happily approved – 15 years later, they are still together. And I suspect they will still be 15 years from now.

  7. Skyler says:

    If people want to boycott this restaurant or any other business, that’s fine with me.

    What I can’t believe any American should ever put up with is an agent of the government trying to bully any person or business to adopt a viewpoint or philosophy.

    The only proper response should involve pitchforks. I’m sickened at what is happening in this country. We should never put up with what these mayors said.

  8. Michael Lonie says:

    This flooding of customers to Chik-fil-A is happening right across the country. A lot of people seem to be paying attention to what the Liberal Fascists are doing, and they don’t like it. Today was a massive protest against the increasingly heavy hand of activist government. They’ll all have another oportunity to express their views in November.

    I’d never heard of this chain before this brouhaha, and have never seenone.

  9. tree hugging sister says:

    Well, Kathy, of COURSE you have to register with the state for your union to be recognized legally (Joint tax return, child custody, wills, hospital rights, etc. anyone?) and the ONLY way to do it is if your STATE allows gay unions. Ours doesn’t. You can dance on a mountaintop all you want, but until there’s a law allowing it, it’s not binding.

  10. Gary from Jersey says:

    Those leftoid boycotters might want to look back 70 years or so to see how well that worked out in Germany.

  11. Syd B. says:

    For a government to declare that your beliefs must match theirs is incredible, but nonetheless, it is what the current day Dem Party is.

    It looks like this issue has staying power, just like the “you didn’t build that” horseshit. Hopefully, those that have been asleep for the past four years, will wake up and realize what a mistake ’08 was. Nov/12 – The end of an error.

  12. aelfheld says:

    By the time I could swing by the local Chick-fil-A they were out of everything.

  13. Lori says:

    Interesting. Here’s the thing, I don’t think he should be censored from making bigoted comments. I think people have a right not to give him money to support bigoted hate groups, though. People have a right to boycott his company. Using the Bible to prove that your hate thoughts are moral has a long history. Refer back to slavery and how the Christians used the bible to prove that it was what God intended. So, lets let the bigot continue to say he is a bigot. Let’s let the people who don’t want their money to fund bigotry boycott the bigot’s chicken places. Let’s stop pretending this is about just gay marriage. He funds a great many organizations which are considered “hate groups.” The most offensive to me is the camp for gay teens to re programmed. AND please keep your religious zealotry out of everybody else’s laws.

  14. tree hugging sister says:

    Lori, what did he say that was “bigoted”? That he supports traditional marriage qualifies as “bigoted”? And nowhere did anyone stop anyone else from not patronizing the restaurants because they disagree with his particular religious beliefs, which have ALWAYS been CLEARLY stated and part of the whole Chik-fil-A “thing”.

    I’m going to turn your twisting of what actually happened back in on itself, where it should be. See, people who disagreed with what this fellow expressed as his PERSONAL OPINION never had a problem NOR HAVE BEEN IMPEDED FROM boycotting his restaurant, as you have erroneously implied. The problem came with his expressing said opinion of traditional marriage being characterized as “bigotry” by flamethrowers such as yourself, who then decided that an opinion of that ilk also equated to some sort of applicable business ban.

    Oh and righteous douchebags like the asshole berating said youngster at the drivethrough, when EVERY SINGLE CUSTOMER at Chik-fil-A is treated respectfully, regardless of their persuasion, race, sex or planetoid origin.
    The only “bigotry” I’ve seen so far is the unfortunate predilection for those who disagree with the “traditional marriage” stance to scream “bigot” hater” etc, right off the bat. Cheapening the words, you know?

    Because hereabouts, MOST of the same screamers, hit by a bus, would haul their wounded asses off to Sacred Heart or Baptist Hospitals, just chock FULL of those same exact bigots, but compassionate, skilled in the medical arts ones, for care! Everyone in your bigot flamethrowing community excoriates the Catholic Church for the exact same thing, but who was in the forefront of AIDS/HIV intervention and care, Lori? THOSE SAME BIGOTS. The ones who took in desperately ill GAYS when no one else would, funded the research DECADES ahead of society and STILL DO. Yet they’re BIGOTS, right?

    “Hate thoughts”, my ass.

  15. Michael Lonie says:

    The issue was that several powerful politicians threatened that they would prevent Chik-fil-A from being licensed to operate a new business in their cities because the President of the company did not parrot the ideological dictates of their Party. Because he did not parrot an ideology he does not believe in and publicly stated that he holds a position on an issue that liberals disapprove of, the company was going to be punished. That is corruption, just as much as if they demanded a bribe for issuing the license. That is a use of government power to coerce a demand for the sort of totalitarian conformity to ideology that we saw all too much of during the 20th century. Anyone who does not see the danger in government officials making decisions whether or not to provide government services or benefits (in this case a restaurant license and permission to build a new restaurant) on the basis of the ideological conformity of the people requesting the service or benefit, is a fool or a knave. Take your choice.

    All I can say is that the young lady handled the attempt to upset her extremely well.

    I probably would have jumped through the window and into the car and beat the crap out of that inciter.

    Yeah, I’d be in jail and out of work.

    That’s why I admire her composure.
