‘Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day’ Was a Huge Success

Chase Colston, Townsquare Media

Looks like a lot of people around the country were eating more chicken yesterday. (I’m sure that made the cows happy!)  Chick-fil-A’s “Appreciation Day” was a huge success. It definitely was in Tyler, because I saw the long line of cars stretching to “forever” down  South Broadway and Troup Highway.“The Appreciation Day” was in support for the company’s stance against equal marriage rights and for the backlash the company received. According to CNN, the company won’t say exactly how much the demonstrations boosted the company’s bottom-line, but has confirmed that Wednesday was a “record-setting day.”

Mayors in some cities, including Boston and Chicago, responded to Chick-fil-a president and COO Dan Cathy’s recent remarks on his “Biblical” view of marriage by insinuating that the chain was not welcome within city limits.

The fast-food chain has always made it clear that they are an organization who believes in Christian ideas. I mean they aren’t open on Sundays, just for that reason. It didn’t seem to be a problem then, but since Chick-fil-a president, Dan Cathy’s recent decision to publicly affirm the company’s “Biblical” view on marriage to the Baptist Press, things have changed.

Meanwhile, gay rights supporters, are getting ready for what they’re calling “National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A” on Friday, a name that pretty much explains it all. Participants are encouraged to take a photo of themselves kissing in, you guessed it, a Chick-Fil-A restaurant.

Some feel this is not discrimination but a free-speech issue. What do you think?
