'The Daily' Gets The Scoop On NJ's Chick-fil-A Supporters: VIDEO


Religious conservatives traveled far and wide to support a Chick-fil-A outpost at the Paramus Park Mall in New Jersey.

The Daily reporter Justin Rocket Silverman was there to get the inside scoop on why they're backing the fast food franchise. To most, the issue isn't about free speech, as Fox News and Mike Huckabee would have you believe, but about "traditional marriage."

“It’s important to support Chick-fil-A and what they believe in, their values, traditional marriage and that’s why we’re here," said one of the customers who spent one hour of his life waiting in line for a chicken sandwich.

  1. So, how many young boys has the priest had sex with? Please, ask the tough questions! That is the problem with our society...we are a bunch of wimps!

  2. I am sorry but I can't help but laugh. Is this really what Christianity has come to? Standing in line to buy junk food to show you hate queers. LOL... Jesus would be so proud.

  3. They are so incredibly misguided. We heart straight marriage, therefore we heart Chick-fil-a. The groups that Chick-fil-a freely admitted to giving financial backing to have been labeled as hate groups by the SPLC. NOM and Exodus international want to do their best to spread lies and misinformation and get more queers beat up. A disgusting amount of the people that showed up at these things were ignorant rednecks who just wanted to hate queers in public for a day. It's disgusting. I hope they choke on it.

  4. Inspired by a previous comment on Towleroad, this is for the history books...

  5. The last question the interviewer asks is masterful.

  6. :sigh: I just think the sooner this whole thing ends the better- I appreciate the support from our allies in the various mayors who tried to move against Chick-Fil-A, but that move was no only illegal, but ill-advised public-opinion-wise. It only helped to galvanize right-wingers, and made gay people and their supporters look like they were penalizing people exercising their free speech rights. It's much easier to go support a business, especially a restaurant, than it is to go show up at a church or protects- and I think this is why the majority of companies supporting LGBT rights have done well recently- because we're already buying their products- like General Mills and Tom & Jerry's. Also- the majority of Chick-Fil-A's are in the southeast and Mid-west- Bible country. So protesting "the queers" isn't a hard thing.

    I think it would've been better for all the mayors/politicians to simply say, "I'm not eating there-because etc." Huckabee would've still had his "Eat Hate" day, but they would've had less of a leg to stand on. I think the eat thing is to continue boycotting them- but let this die.

  7. If they are so into the Bible, doesn't it say "thou shalt not kill"?

    They just killed chickens.

  8. Did that African American women just say "We can't redefine things that have been established for thousands of year?"

  9. @ Will:
    aaaaaah....I see what you did there!

  11. I'm getting bored with every other article on this site being about Sh1t-fil-A. Enough is enough.

  12. The annoyingly drippy girl with the pony tail is the worst kind of idiot....i could have predicted that she would say something like 'I have gay friends'...'I dont have any bias just call it something different and then everyone is happy'...for some reason these pseudo friendly bigots are far more annoying...give me a bible bashing crazy loon at least you know where you stand with them. she clearly doesn't have gay friends otherwise they would give her some polite notes on her posture, dirty hair and grubby t shirt.

  13. I haven't been keeping up with the comments on this site but has it been established that towleroad has turned into just an anti-chik-fil-a website.

    don't eat there and post more pics of maybe gay olympic divers. move on.

  14. Why is something negative not considered hate, when religion is used to justify it?

    Posted by: Blake | Aug 2, 2012 1:42:06 PM

  15. The more people talk about the marriage equality issue, the more it helps republicans. The democrats are too far out in front of average Americans on this issue. In 20 years the numbers will be different, but thats not going to help Obama in about 3 months.

  16. Yeah Towleroad, this is getting so old now! Enough with the Chick....

  17. The frenzy of the maddening crowds out in the noon day sun must be like the Nazi party celebrations of last century. Except for all the clucking.

    Let them have their day.

  18. If it's called "Chick-fil-A appreciation day", shouldn't Chick-fil-A be giving free food to it's customers to show their appreciation?....Also isn't McNuggets, as stated by the priest,a product of McDonalds?

  19. "Did that African American women just say 'We can't redefine things that have been established for thousands of year?'"

    I don't know if most Caribbean Americans call themselves African Americans.

    And could it possibly be that to justify her narrow-minded remark she knows the difference between an "institution" that has gone on for thousands of years as compared to that other one that affected "her kind" for hundreds? Could she have thought ahead of time, and anticipated your cute criticism, Will?

    No, she couldn't possibly be that intelligent...and you know why, don'tcha'? see what I did just there, Myackie.

  21. To follow Dan Cathy's Chick Fil hAte logic, Long John Silver's can't serve shrimp to menstruating women wearing poly blend slacks! It's in the Bible!

  23. sorry Derrick...but I think that woman should be a bit more sympathetic to others, considering this planet's history. That woman is supporting hatred...but would probably be very quick to scream out if someone hated her for just being her.

    I have little tolerance/sympathy for people like that.

  24. Me thinks the good father was confused.

    He thought he was going to get a "different" kind of chicken, and some young tasty-boy buns.

  25. Ummm can someone explain to me why there are ads for Mitt Romney turning up at the bottom of this site?
