Via Barracuda Brigade:
The left’s attempt to damage Chick-Fil-A completely backfired yesterday. Not only did customers wait for hours in line to “eat more chikin” but many Chick-Fil-A locations ran out of food. Rick Santorum, Rep. Louie Gohmert, newly elected Ted Cruz, Sen. Lindsey Graham, Pat Boone and others tweetedabout supporting the company. Santa also decided to show up..in August! It’s fair to say the boycott failed miserably and that the buycott overwhelmingly succeeded. If this many people show up to vote in November, President Obama is in trouble.
She goes on to note this tweet from Pastor Rick Warren:
Ah, the delicious irony! Freedom of Speech and Chick-Fil-A are are thriving in spite of attempted thuggery by the left and a few lefty mayors. In fact, their attempt at fascism might just have backfired even more spectacularly than anyone anticipated. Hopefully, yesterday’s record-breaking sales and wrap-around lines are a preview of what’s to come in November when freedom-loving Americans head to the polls.
UPDATE: My friend Gary at the excellent A Time For Choosing Blog has a great follow-up post. Here’s an excerpt:
For the record, I don’t particularly care if a person is gay or straight. Like Dr Martin Luther King counseled, I’d rather judge folks by the content of their character. That said, marriage is a religious ceremony, and a concept that dates back thousands of years. It is supposed to be between a man and a woman. It’s no more difficult than that.
I aggravates me to see militant, and often hate-filled, radicals attack others for simply holding beliefs that are shared with the vast majority of people from around the world and every religion .
I’m also curious why these hate-filled, militant activists never, ever attack Muslim businesses or the Muslim religion. Islam teaches gays must be put to death. Christianity is just against two of them marrying. Which is worse?
Christianity teaches “love the sinner, hate the sin.” Islam teaches “kill em all!“
Of course, we all know the answer why these cowards choose to direct all their hate toward Christians, instead of Muslims. Christians don’t behead folks or strap bombs on their children and send them into crowds.
It would do the radicals good to remember which religion is more tolerant.
