Chick-fil-A restaurants 'mobbed' by appreciative patrons

Want to improve business? Then take a pro-marriage stand. LifeSiteNews is reporting Chick-fil-A restaurants have been packed with customers in support of CEO Dan Cathy's stand against same-sex marriage:

Conservative leaders from across America described the chicken-crazed chaos.
Jim Sedlak of the American Life League said that “our little Chick-Fil-A in Stafford, Virginia was absolutely mobbed at lunch time,” forcing hungry families to journey over from nearby parking lots.
“They have a very little parking lot, but it was just absolutely mobbed today. It was terrific,” Sedlak told over the telephone. He said the drive through line “snaked almost twice around the building” and, “from the size of the bags people were carrying out, purchasing LOTS of food.”
 The mainstream media has also picked up on the frenzy. Fox News points out that a Chick-fil-A sandwich is also a sign of freedom:

It used to be that taking a bite of a chicken sandwich just meant you were hungry. Now it has become a symbol of whether you stand for or against same-sex marriage, or – alternately – the right to express your personal views without fear of retaliation.
At Chick-fil-A locations across the country, people voted with their wallets today, coming out to express support for the fast-food chain after CEO Dan Cathy said in an interview that he is a firm backer of traditional marriage.
Chris Johnson sees a double standard. “He (Dan Cathy) said the exact same thing that President Obama said,” Johnson told Fox News -- referring to the president’s past opposition to gay marriage – “And he gets negativity, and Obama gets positivity.”
While our neighbours to the south expressed their freedom of speech while enjoying an assortment of chicken goodies, it wasn't all good news for conservative Americans today. Aug. 1 is also the first day of the Obama healthcare mandate.
