RTHere's some pretty good news, people who believe in free speech and free markets blasted the Chick-fil-a boycott into irrelevance.
@rickwarren: @dancathy just called me. #ChickFilA has already set a world record today, with 7 more hrs to go in the West. #OutOfChicken

And the homosexual activists and their liberal supporters along with the lick-spittle liberal media have only themselves to blame.
For years Conservatives and Christians have sat silently by while gay activists and their supporters whined, screamed at, threatened, insulted and denigrated them. They've attempted to bully and browbeat others to accept, what to many, is the unacceptable and this time they've pushed it to far.
Exactly what did Dan Cathy say to cause such an uproar?
He offered his own opinion.
"I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'" Cathy said. "I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."
Cathy explains that the company that his father created and the one that he now runs is possible because of family and the support that families offer.
"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that … We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy said.He also expressed something that has become pretty foreign nowadays, the idea that there are virtues worth living up to.
Things like fidelity, commitment, support of family and a humble gratitude for what he's been able to help build.
These are things that, at one time in America, were desirable characteristics in a business owner and something he looked for in his employees. Things that good men and women aspired to.
But virtues seem to be out of fashion these days, a commitment to marriage, fidelity, family and humility have become worthy of scorn and ridicule from the gay crowd and their liberal political panderers.
The truth is that real Americans have been pushed to far, the incessant demands of the entitlement crowd, gay activists and "give it away" liberal democrats has just reached the point where we are saying "enough".
What happened today was a peaceful and orderly message. It's the way Conservatives and Christians do things and in a sane world it would be a wake up call.
But the truth is it won't be, and the liberal bullies will just keep pushing until there will be another peaceful and orderly message sent loud and clear in November.
