Americans have turned out all over the country today to stand in support of Chick-Fil-A. A minor controversy broke out weeks ago when the chicken fast-food chain’s CEO, Dan Cathy, made public comments to a reporter about his financial donations to pro-family groups.
In response, liberal lawmakers around the country expressed outrage. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino declared that Chick-Fil-A wasn’t welcome in his town, and both Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a local Chicago Alderman said they’d work to block any proposed restaurants being built in their jurisdiction despite the obvious violation of the First Amendment that implies.
Menino and Emanuel backed off their stances, but former Arkansas Gov. and Fox News host Mike Huckabee thought that pro-family Americans should stand in solidarity with Chick-Fil-A and declared that August 1 would be “Chick-Fil-A day.”
Reports have flowed in throughout the country of massive lines for the chicken chain. Here are just a few of the photos.
