Rick Warren: Chick-fil-A’s owner told me they set a new world record in sales today

posted at 9:49 pm on August 1, 2012 by Allahpundit

And the day’s not over yet.

Somewhere, a Burger King ad man’s toying with the idea of having “The King” declare himself “100% pro-life.”

Not a word about today’s activities has been whispered on Chick-fil-A’s feed even though CFA has been trending on Twitter off and on all day. As noted in the earlier post, the suspicion is that the company’s lying low about what’s happening in order to extricate itself from the front line of the culture war, but I wonder if today’s outpouring will draw some sort of recognition tomorrow. If Dan Cathy’s willing to tout the numbers to Rick Warren, presumably an official acknowledgment and thank you is on the way.

There’s no shortage of local news stories out there about huge lines at the neighborhood CFA; if you’re curious, these two, from Iowa and Kentucky, are fairly representative. Meanwhile, I assume some sort of “Unappreciation Day” is in the works on the left, if only to respond to such an impressive show of strength, but I don’t know. Could be that, between this and the thuggish idiocy of Rahm and Mumbles Menino, they’re ready to cut their losses. Exit question: How big a political victory is this for Huckabee? Per this Fox News clip (via Mediaite), even he sounds surprised.

Hey, if you rearrange the letters in the word ‘faith’, you get ‘unicorn’.

Don’t test it out, just believe me.

The “Progressive” version of this logic is “we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it”…

Strike Hornet on August 2, 2012 at 2:27 PM

Overwhelmingly and strongly smacked down by (as is your concern) the ‘left’, ‘liberals’, ‘progressives’, etc.

Sorry, I must’ve missed that

Oh, look how cute! Selective editing. I can do that too – tag you’re “it”. Got something against farms, oh “worldly and tolerant one”?

Funny how you conveniently never addressed my question, though. Not unlike you at all. :)

Your amended moniker suits you perfectly.

I see that the circular firing squad that is this thread continues…

You progressives must just despise our President:
“As a “Christian”, I believe marriage is the “SACRED UNION BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN”.
~Barak Obama 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012

You voted for this obvious “gay hating Christian bigot” who (until last month in heat of a tight election year) “suddenly evolved”…

Why would you vote for a “Gay-Hating Christian Bigot” who wants to put Gay people back in the closet and doesn’t reflect “Chicago, Boston or San Francisco Values”?

…Jesus couldn’t feed the 5,000 today, because the local health inspector would be right there, demanding why the disciples weren’t wearing gloves, and where did all that bread and fish come from, anyway?

ROFL!!! So true! :-D

Many people are defending free speech, not necessarily CFA’s president’s views on gay marriage.

I find it interesting that not one person commented on my previous post (below). A telltale sign that people CANNOT see a different view. Of course, the LBGT absolutely MUST have the spotlight on them (as usual). ME ME ME!!! LOOK AT ME!!!!!!

Boston’s Mayor Menino “sold” $2 million worth of city property to the Islamic Society of Boston’ for $175,000, despite their well-documented links to Muslim extremism. The mosque teaches a form of Islam that condemns homosexuals to death.

However, Menino won’t let a guy spend his own money opening a restaurant (privately owned chain), because he doesn’t support same-sex marriage?

Does anyone see the hypocrisy here??

It’s a great point, and one which will never, never, see the light of day in the MSM, alas…

Hey, if you rearrange the letters in the word triple, you still don’t get sh*t.

Or do you?

Bmore on August 2, 2012 at 4:28 PM

As concerns marriage, in the Natural Law, there is no way in which you can argue for same-sex marriage as anything other than unnatural. It cannot be supported by appeals to morality (all religions who accept any concept of morality reject it). It cannot be supported by appeals to any sort of evolutionary dogma (that is, the athiest metaphysical beginning point). The only way in which it can be supported as a correct interpretation of marriage is in a post-modern hedonism – post-modern to toss out commonly accepted definitions, hedonism to make personal desire the ultimate good.

GWB on August 2, 2012 at 1:27 PM

You can certainly justify gay marriage with natural law. It depends, in part, on if and how your natural law relies on a telos as Medieval interpreters of Aristotle did.

Tolerance.

Nope. Consistently on the side of wrong and evil.

(BTW, I think I meant to respond to one of your direct posts to me abut Apple the other night and didn’t. Sorry, and I didn’t mean anything by it. Some of my best friends are Mac.)
