Rick Warren: Chick-fil-A’s owner told me they set a new world sales record today

And the day’s not over yet.
Somewhere, a Burger King ad man’s toying with the idea of having “The King” declare himself “100% pro-life.”
@dancathy just called me.#ChickFilA has already set a world record today, with 7 more hrs to go in the West.#OutOfChicken

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 -- http://siouxcityjournal.com/business/local/de... -- and Kentucky -- http://www.wave3.com/story/19171392/business-... --, 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.

Chick-fil-A, the now notoriously anti-gay fast-food chain, is once again involved more controversy, this time involving gender discrimination.
Brenda Honeycutt, a former employee of a Chick-fil-A establishment in Georgia, is suing the restaurant for wrongful termination, alleging that she is a victim of gender discrimination, according to GLAAD.
The lawsuit, which was obtained by GLAAD, refers to a June 27, 2011, incident in which Jeff Howard, the owner and operator of a Duluth, Ga., Chick-fil-A, fired Honeycutt so she could be a "stay home mother."
Click here to see the lawsuit filed by Honeycutt, courtesy of GLAAD.
According to the document, Howard held meetings without Honeycutt present and eventually replaced her with a male employee. Her termination is allegedly part of a pattern of gender discrimination "against female employees" at the Duluth establishment.
Prior to her termination, Honeycutt's performance had been "satisfactory-to-above satisfactory."
Jezebel's Doug Barry recently poked fun at Howard's decision to replace Honeycutt with a male, writing, "you know, because guys don't have all that baby-making liability stuffed into their abdomens."
The most recent Chick-fil-A controversy raises temperatures even higher on the pressure cooker.
"This comes after last week’s statements by Chick-Fil-A’s Chief of Operations, Dan Cathy, in which he openly declared that he does not support marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples – now the company has taken one further step of being out of touch with American values," Brian Pacheco, GLAAD's Spanish-Language Media Strategist, wrote on the organization's blog.
The company's anti-gay stance has outraged the people in Hollywood, as well as some politicians in cities across the nation.

The magnitude of the public relations disaster for liberals can't be overstated. They've sown the wind, and they're reaping the whirlwind.
"notpoliticallycorewrecke d " in California: "Just left our local CFA. We were given the honor of being the last in line. They wanted to ensure that there was going to be enough food and that they would close by 10. After an hour in line we were informed that they were out of food. The manager could not believe the response. Everyone that didn’t get served all commented that they were coming back tomorrow."
"FlingWingFlyer": " in The Mother of All Exploding Cigars. LOL! Liberal freaks crack me up."
"Jonty30": "The Chik-Fil-A eaters are also active voters. Obama and the Dems and the leftist media have ticked off a lot of people. It wasn’t looking good for the Dems and now it looks even worse."

Now there's the kind of diligent, fact based arguments we have come to know and love from right wing morons: quoting anonymous posters from unnamed boards. Like that means something???
You gotta at least try a little bit...

Gotta love seeing liberals getting hoist by their own petard. They whine, they pout, they bluster, they threaten ... and multiplied hundreds of thousands of customers set a new world sales record at Chick-fil-A restaurants. The Mother of All Exploding Cigars, indeed.
View 'em and weep, libs. We couldn't have accomplished this massive turnout without your overwrought petulance.

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Customers across the nation who turned out for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day were in for a surprise, as the chicken restaurant chose today to launch a new product, Hate Sauce.
Delighted customers mobbed the restaurants to try the zesty new sauce, with many chicken fanciers ordering their sandwiches with extra hate.“It’s so spicy it makes your mouth feel like it’s on fire—like a gay couple in hell,” said Harland Dorrinson, who sampled the sauce at a Chick-fil-A in Orlando.
But even as Chick-fil-A prepared to call its new hate sauce an instant hit, it faced a challenge from an upstart rival, Wing-n-nuts.
The rival chain, based in Falls Church, Virginia, chose today to introduce a new product targeting Chick-fil-A patrons, the Chicken Bacon Bigotwich.
“We think we’re going to take a big bite out of Chick-fil-A’s customer base,” said Wing-n-nuts corporate spokesperson Carol Foyler.“Their founder is anti-gay. But ours is anti-gay, anti-immigrant, and anti-woman. When word gets out about that, there’ll be lines around the block.”

CFA supporters send message: Make us fatter! Give us more heart disease! With a side of diabetes! Obesity for Jeebus!
Isn't it ironic that all these poor deluded evangelicals would do something so self-destructive as to consume fast-food junk food to express support for the denial of equal rights?
Isn't it ironic that a person like Huckabee who has been morbidly obese (and appears to be headed toward that territory again) would be the person to encourage evangelicals in this type of unhealthy behavior?
Eat up, bigots. Die out faster.

Let us shed a solitary tear for a liberal [writing on Democratic Underground] who learned painfully how massive were the consequences of his and his fellow liberals' hysterical caterwauling about Chick-fil-A: "They have caused traffic jams all over KC. I was driving around for busines today and twice got stuck in traffic for over thirty minutes due to extreme traffic caused by their crap. The authorites need to move this traffic on as its wrong to create a nuisance and safety issue for drivers."

Liberals, we can't wait for you to pitch your next hissy fit. Look at how marvelously well your last tantrum turned out for us and the target of your juvenile pique.
