I WAS IN THE CHARLOTTESVILLE CHICK-FIL-A ABOUT 5:00 P.M. I spent 20-25 minutes just working my way in the parking lot, just to find a space to park. Inside the line wrapped around tables, I spent about 20 minutes in line to order. IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE SIGHT, VERY MOVING TO SEE SO MANY PEOPLE COMING OUT TO SUPPORT CHICK-FIL-. Everyone was happy and proud to be there. When I left the line was out the door into the parking lot down to the drive-thru. What an incredible memory. 

Rick Warren: Chick-Fil-A's Owner Told Me They Set a New World Record in Sales Today - Hot Air - Rick Warren ✔ @RickWarren @dancathy just called me. #ChickFilA has already set a world record today, with 7 more hrs to go in the West. #OutOfChicken 1 Aug 12  - Not a word about today’s activities has been whispered on Chick-fil-A’s feed even though CFA has been trending on Twitter off and on all day. As noted in the earlier post, the suspicion is that the company’s lying low about what’s happening in order to extricate itself from the front line of the culture war, but I wonder if today’s outpouring will draw some sort of recognition tomorrow. If Dan Cathy’s willing to tout the numbers to Rick Warren, presumably an official acknowledgment and thank you is on the way. There’s no shortage of local news stories out there about huge lines at the neighborhood CFA; if you’re curious, these two, from Iowa and Kentucky, are fairly representative. Meanwhile, I assume some sort of “Unappreciation Day” is in the works on the left, if only to respond to such an impressive show of strength, but I don’t know. Could be that, between this and the thuggish idiocy of Rahm and Mumbles Menino, they’re ready to cut their losses. Exit question: How big a political victory is this for Huckabee? Per this Fox News clip (via Mediaite), even he sounds surprised.


Black Pastors: Banning Chick-Fil-A 'Same Thing' As Banning Blacks from Restaurants - CNS News - The President of the Coalition of African-American Pastors says supporters of traditional marriage are facing the same discrimination that blacks faced during the civil rights movement. “Some people are saying because of the position that Chick-fil-A has taken - they don’t want them in their cities,” Rev. William Owens said at the National Press Club on Tuesday.  Read more........

Black Pastors Oppose Gay 'Marriage' Warn Obama: We 'Will Not Stand With You' - CNS News - The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) announced at the National Press Club on Tuesday that the grassroots group - comprised of the more than 3,000 members - is a launching a national campaign to support marriage between one man and one woman and to oppose the Obama administration’s efforts to advance same-sex marriage.  Read more........

Will Democrats End Marriage As We Know It - Townhall When the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) passed in Congress in 1996, the vote was bi-partisan and overwhelming. In the House, the tally was 342-67. Only the farthest left of Democrats and a handful of Republicans voted against it. A majority of Democrats supported marriage. In the Senate, the vote was even more lopsided and bi-partisan, 85-14. Again, most Democrats backed marriage. In both houses of Congress, the DOMA passed with such strong margins that President Clinton could clearly see the measure had better than "veto strength." That is, if he had vetoed the Defense of Marriage Act, Congress could have passed it over his veto. That would have required 67 votes in the Senate and 292 votes in the House. Bowing to the inevitable, Clinton signed the bill. Now, President Obama has refused "to take care that the laws be faithfully executed" if he disagrees with them.  Read more........
