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

12/25/2013 8:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


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.

Chick filet is not homophobic. Their owner believes marriage is for man and woman. Quit being so stupid and hateful. That's the gay and liberal viewpoint. "Don't agree with us, you're bigots, racists and homophobes" get over yourselves already. Everything in life does not revolve around gays. They're even trying to ruin the Olympics. Just be gay and shut up about it already, Jesus.

Doesn't "Homophobic" mean someone is scared of gay people?? I have read or seen nothing that suggests that chic fil a or Phil Robertson are scared of gay people. They simply don't agree with the lifestyle and support traditional marriage. The liberal media likes to embellish their comments and add things like " homophobic" to sensationalize the comments. its pretty embarrassing when they can't just identify Chic fil a or Phil Robertson as "Pro traditional marriage" and instead they call it "gay hate speech" and "homo phobic" etc etc...

Hey TMZ, being against homosexual behavior is NOT homophobia. Stop with your deceptive labels.

These people will find any excuse to eat at Chick Fil A. They eat there at the drop of a hat. That is their favorite form of protest. Forget marching in the streets, that is too much exercise. They want to sit down and eat some greasy chicken to show their support of causes.

Welcome to the Baby Boomer retirement protests. It is fairly ironic that this isn't being staged at Cracker Barrel. I guess they wore out their affiliatiion with the duck corps.

so Chick fil... is not behind this campaign.... who ever started it must of figured to give this chain the business since they (the owner) has similiar views... as opposed to say STARBUCKS (!)...

this is another NON STORY... while I know Harvey and others at TMZ are gay... and I respect and have NO problem with them or THEIR life styles.... THIS STORY is a NON STORY...

I am SICK AND TIRED of seeing people being ATTACKED for their VIEWS... STRICTLY their VIEWS... RELIGIOUS VIEWS.. We are not talking about people like those from the Westboro 'BAPTIST' (hate using the word Baptist because they are not from any recognized Baptist denomination) 'Church' who go out, cause CAOS, Violence, HATE, then SUE... (they are actually a small group, mainly FAMILY MEMBERS, mainly LAWYERS, who 'earn' their living thru lawsuits)..

No, we are talking about religious people who HONESTLY believe their religious books say it is wrong and are just stating their VIEWS.. and just their views.. nothing MORE.. no prejudice as not hiriing gays..etc.

when printed stories come out about how WRONG they are... i.e. STUPID , IGNORANT.. (AND MANY ARE COLLEGE EDUCATED...) it just makes people become defensive about their religion.. and their views will NEVER CHANGE... I know gays have waited a LONG TIME.. BUT things are changing.. PEACE.. AND CALM talking are the things to do .. with those like Chick fil a and those at Duck (westboro.. well, they are RADICALS.. AND AFTER THE $$$$$ ... talk is not going to happen and well both sides have those like this... SADLY..)

WHY DON'T WE HAVE STORIES BLASTING CHARLIE SHEEN? Or better, no stories about Charlie Sheen? He is an idiot and seems to blast off when he needs publicity-why give it to him?
