Chick-fil-A said it set a one-day sales record Wednesday after thousands of diners poured into the chain’s stores from coast to coast.
Doesn’t eat at Chick-fil-A“We are very grateful and humbled by the incredible turnout of loyal Chick-fil-A customers on Aug. 1 at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country,” Steve Robinson, the company’s executive vice president of marketing, said in a statement. “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was not a company promotion; it was initiated by others.”In what was dubbed “Appreciation Day” by organizer Mike Huckabee, the GOP presidential candidate-turned-Fox News show host, thousands came out to show support for the company after its president, Dan Cathy, made controversial comments about gay marriage that month and in June.
The privately held company declined to provide revenue figures. The company has released annual sales figures in the past, though not profits.
“While we don’t release exact sales numbers, it was an unprecedented day” Robinson said.Stores throughout metro Atlanta and the state were packed with diners, who waited in lines that snaked out doors. Drivethru traffic also outpaced capacity, reaching into streets and stretching for blocks. LINK
A few reactions from the Black Community:
“This will be a little more like “the black experience” once someone takes a fire hose and washes them off of the street. It will be more like “the black experience” when someone sets the dogs loose on them. It will be more like “the black experience” when they can be arrested for protesting.”
“It’s insulting to equate being gay to having black skin. We didn’t march one inch, not one foot, not one yard for gay people. We marched for equal rights for black folks. The right to vote and not be discriminated against. For the gay movement to try to make civil rights for blacks equal to saying a man should marry another man is very insulting to me.”
Gay marriage supporters, like Obama, offend people daily. Their self-centeredness makes them oblivious to the discomfort of others.
For this reason and for so many more reasons, conservatives will win the elections of 2012.

It's a classic case of the .05% trying their damnest to scream loud enough to get what they want… And based on Weds outpouring of support, I think the majority HAS spoken!
Should the anus be used as a sex organ?
Actually I don't care whether or not people use any body parts or plastic toys to scratch the itch. The problem is that it's taken to an absurd place by the "progressives". Homosexual relationships can not produce children on their own. They are a genetic dead-end (pun intended).
Marriage is defined by the nation as a union between a man and a woman, and that is affirmed by the 'natural right' that created each and every human being. Man and woman, not man and man.
You have to wonder what the ObamaNation is thinking when the numbers seem so skewed against their notions on the eve of a presidential election. Maybe POTUS is going to flip flop on his support for gay marriage?
The result of a liberal knee jerk reaction, where they hate to be disagreed with.
I could say other things to express my opinion, but I'm trying hard not to be struck by lightning.
I wondered the same. I think he sees it like this – its close to 50/50, so he has to get his base interested, and so he moves to the far left. The far left was excited in 2008, not so much now. He will start to talk about 'ending' the wars, etc. Hopefully the middle left will not put up with it…
