On Wednesday, August 1st, we need to let Chik-Fil-A know that Cape Girardeau won't tolerate their bigotry. Hate is not okay, and we need to protest them and let everyone know that Chik-Fil-A donates money to hate organizations that fight to deny equal rights to our gay and lesbian friends, family, and neighbors.

Let's show them we stand together will not accept hate and discrimination in our city. Boycott and protest Chik-Fil-A on August 1st and make sure all your friends and family do the same. Together we can make a difference!

Free speech does not include hate speech, and there is a difference between saying hateful and backwards things and actually donating money to hate organizations like Chik-Fil-A does.

There is nothing "radical" about believing all people are created equal. If you believe that to be radical, you don't belong in a country founded on that principle.

I don't have any gay and lesbian friends, family, or neighbors. If I did, I damn sure wouldn't want anyone to know about it. You people need to just just shut-up, you make me sick.

Since when does disagreeing with a lifestyle choice become hate and bigotry. Are you fine with taking away their civil liberties just to promote your own? What you are constituting is is the biggest hipocrasy I've read in a long time. Be gay all you want, It is a choice, and wouldnt hate on it. But, Ill be in line buying 5.

Name one civil liberty the LGBTQ has ever tried to take from anyone. I'm sorry you feel hating people for who they are is okay.

They got the same damn rights everyone else has.

Chic fil a isn't preaching hate or bigotry. They just don't support same sex marriage.

Liberals always label something as hatred, bigotry, or racist if you don't agree with them.

They haven't said anything filled with pure hatred, as you all have. I for one (who never goes to Chik-Fil-A) will be showing up to show my support. Funny how we give gays the freedom to speak out and protest for their movement, but when someone tries to use their free speech to give an opinion against homosexuality there's a national uproar...

Hate speech is protected by the constitution. All speech is. He can SAY anything he wants. It's his right. It's yours to choose whether to patronize his business.

The LGBTQ community has the same rights as anyone else? Then I suppose they can get married and don't have to live in fear of violence from homophobes? Stop basking in your heteronormative privilege.

Hate speech and speech that incites violence are both very clearly exempt from the right to free speech. This is one of the first things you should have learned in school about our Bill of Rights.

I do have gay friends, but I don't care one way or the other about gay marriage, but I DO care about someone's right to think its wrong! And to SAY IT OUT LOUD! I also support your right to disagree with them. Such is the price we have to be willing to pay to keep the right for ourselves.

The only violence that's being incited is by the protestors. Preaching their hate on people who don't support their homosexual lifestyle.

We should all have the right to go eat chicken without fear of you crazy protestors. Stop taking away our rights to the delicious chicken. Stop hating people for loving Jesus and chicken.

Please show me where I advocated violence, I'm afraid I did not. I don't hate homophobes, I feel sorry for them, and you're welcome to no support the LGBTQ community. It's your constitutional right to not support the LGBTQ community, but it is not okay to deny them their constitutional rights.
