Chick-fil-A

NO 'DUCK' FOR US

We're NOT Behind Chick-Phil-A Day!

1225-chick-fil-a-phil-day

They've got A LOT in common (killing poultry, homophobia) ... but the people at Chick-fil-A are adamant the company is NOT involved with a growing pro-Phil Robertson campaign called "Chick-Phil-A."

The Chick-Phil-A campaign is picking up steam on social media ... encouraging people to eat at Chick-fil-A restaurants on January 21st while wearing Duck Commander or camouflage gear to show their support for the "Duck Dynasty" star.

A Facebook page for the campaign says, "Stand for free speech. Sit for good food." So far, more than 40,000 people have already committed to participate

But despite the fact Chick-fil-A knows a little something about anti-gay marriage controversies, the restaurant says the event "is in no way sponsored by or affiliated with Chick-fil-A."

Chick-fil-A says Chick-Phil-A was created by an "independent group" ... though at this point, no group has come forward to take credit.

Cluck. Cluck.

I didn't realize there were so many backward "squeal like a pig" types living in this country.

They certainly wanted blood when Paula Dean said "*****ia" in the privacy of her own home.

The following greeting was deleted by TMZ staff/editors, “I wish all the gays, Jews, gay Jews and other fruit cakes working at TMZ, a Merry Christmas. “ I guess they can dish it out, but can’t take it !

This isn't a First Ammendment issue unless the government gets involved and punishes him. That's not to say that I agree with A&E but it's their right.

You do realize that disagreeing with someone's lifecycle doesn't automatically make that person homophobic. A person can believe that someone will go to he11 for engaging in homosexual activity without hating or fearing that person. Believe it or not, they can even LIKE that person.

Believeing that everyone who doesn't agree with what homosexuals do automatically hate homosexuals is like saying that anyone who is against the death penalty loves murderers.

Take the Obamacare ad that features all those buff guys frolicking around the Christmas tree. All they left out was them oiling each other up and going at it. Why couldn't they market to the gay community by showing gay men (and women, btw) in, I don't know, a work setting, with their clothes on? What does that say about overall perceptions of homosexuality, never mind the actual US Gov. perception of homosexuality? Looks like the Prez views male homosexuals as orgy-driven, hedonistic, sex -fiends. Maybe the government is really saying If male homosexuals contract any sort of disease during their frequent and indiscriminate sexual escapades, don't worry, The government will pay for their health care. You'll have to excuse me, I grew up in the dark ages when people didn't expect taxpayers to pay for their VD.

I don't get it? I had an XBOX Live account with the GamerTag of 'Filthy Nagger'. In dedication to a good friend of ours who was always dirty from his job and nagged all the time. Seems like TMZ is cooking up yet another story... Wait that's all they do... Well that and cheer on Harvey Levin and he drinks the blood of children.

Truth    

"Homophobia" is just a simpleton label created to slander anyone that doesn't take commands from gays.

Truth    

"The gay and liberal viewpoint", is that if they don't control you they call you whatever-phobic. GREAT PLAN.
