Anthony Piccola, owner of the Chick-fil-A franchise in Nashua, New Hampshire, announced this his shop will be a sponsor of the area’s gay pride festival next weekend. From Picolla’s statement:
“In both my personal and professional life, I have had and continue to have positive relationships with family, friends, customers and employees in the LGBT community. It would make me sad if someone felt that they were not openly welcomed into my life or restaurant based on their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender.”August 3, 2012 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm #506981
Was there ever a debate about Jesus’ food preferences? The folks at memgenerator.net could have done much better, like removing the added single quote after figs.

Many cities accross this country annually spend significant amounts of money to ensure those in the LGBT community get to have their “pride” parade and pride weekends. No matter their stance on marriage, the tax payers have their money go toward the cost to close down the streets for the parades, the extra overtime for police officers and the significant cleanup cost involved.
Following these parades, you will absolutely never, ever, see news networks, politicians, facebook pages & blogs full with “traditional marriage” advocates blasting the beliefs of those in the parade. That would be “politically incorrect”. Much less you would never see a public figure call for a boycott of the businesses that sponor the parade. Nor would you see a politician want to ban their businesses from being built in their cities. (Rahm Emanuel)
Yesterday millions of Americans required no parade or tax payer dollars to quietly show their support of traditional marriage and a business who supports their values. They simply showed up at a private business, stood in line and made a purchase.
Traditional American values cannot be boycotted or banned. I feel this falls election has already been decided by two things:
“You didn’t build that” & “Boycott Chick Fil A”.
No Republican candidate could ever energize voters more than “you didn’t build that” or “boycott Chick Fil A”.
We will get a new president this year but cities will still have pride parades, all still paid for by taxpayers. You can’t be much more tolerant than that.
Wow … Just wow! Go back to topix please!August 4, 2012 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #506983

Hmmm, just remembered that the loved one of mine who stood in line to support Chick-Fil-A? They’re divorced.
