and Chick-fil-A won. When are you people going to understand that no one gives a fuck about gay rights or marriage. It's all a mirage created by the lame stream media so they don't have to cover Obozo's inept job preformance daily. The democrats playbook is so easy to read. Create fake social outrage, gin it up to seem like the entire counties biggest concern is gay marriage or climate change to divert us from real issues that the democrats are failing at everyday like unemployment, Iran, ISIS...God the people of this country are stupid.

Same-Sex Kiss Day sounds like Mommy Make-Out Day...

I ate at the Chick Fil-A here in North Palm Beach that day... I also recall the threats/promises of protests against the restaurant from the LGBT supporters... They sold out of just about every scrap of food in the place.. It was absolutely packed, with hundreds waiting to get in.. Customers were cheering on the young workers as they tried to keep up.. For myself, and most I talked to there, the occasion was about free speech.. And no one harassed,  took issue with or tried to deny the 2 women across the street holding the Rainbow Flag from exercising theirs...
Whatever dude
This is really silly, for both sides... I mean, the kissing shit, the support, the backlash. This was one of the silliest things christians and homosexuals have been a part of. It was silly
This was not necessarily only about supporting the true definition of marriage, but supporting a man's 1st amendment rights!  I have all right to stand against gay marriage, I will never support it, not in my lifetime!  The liberal media and dirt-bag good for nothing politicians tried to boycott Chick-fil-a and look what happened? The total opposite! Record breaking sales.

+Gio Vince I feel like allowing businesses in the United States to conduct free trade, as is their RIGHT;  as long as they don't break the law.   This is whether or not I personally agree with the owner's philosophy about something unrelated.... "Tiger".
