People Excercise Freedom of Speech During Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day

Tools

By CBS 8 News

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee created the day, calling for a celebration after the fast food chain found itself in the middle of a controversy.

Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy recently said he believes in the Biblical definition of marriage -- between a man and a woman -- and adding that he loves and respects anyone who disagrees.

Supporters of same-sex marriage have accused the chain of discrimination and are are calling for a boycott.

Chick-fil-A says it does not discriminate against anyone.

It is an unofficial Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

I expect this kind of bigotry from this this close minded state. A state that once oppressed African Americans and kept them from eating in the same restaurants as whites, and used the very same arguments in marriage when trying to marry interacialy.

Why no pictures or video of the customer lines out the doors and cars shutting down Eastchase traffic? There is a silent protest by the masses against attempts to squash free speech in this country and CBS is trying hard to ensure it remains silent.
