Peace-Loving Gay Community Violently Protests Chick-fil-A

Peace-Loving Gay Community Violently Protests Chick-fil-A
Some gay rights activists protested Chick-fil-A.

Since Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy vocally supported traditional marriage, the LGBT community vowed to boycott the intolerant, hateful fried chicken chain. But the protests have been anything but a tolerant love fest.

On Thursday, a Chick-fil-A in Torrance, Calif., became a canvass for a gay artist. The words “Tastes Like Hate” and a picture of a cow were scrawled across the side of the building. Manny Castro claimed the artwork.

Castro denies any wrong doing. “Everybody is entitled to free speech, but it seems like for the gay tribe, this is more of an issue of equal rights — human rights,” Castro told the Huffington Post. “I’m against what these people stand for, what this company stands for. They’re trying to take away what little rights we already have. It’s paint on a wall. It got removed in less than an hour. It’s not that much of a crime — it’s a protest.”

A Chick-fil-A in St. Louis was also vandalized. “Don’t Hate,” was written on the side of the building which serves drive-thru customers.

At a Chick-fil-A in Chicago, a group of Chick-fil-A protestors congregated around a homeless man reading his Bible. An eyewitness recounted the event.

While there, a group formed around an elderly African-American homeless man, who was reading his bible while seated along a fence rail off to the side of the protest. Some in the group confronted the man, who was reading the bible aloud, and engaged him in theological debates. A few others took the opportunity to mock the man, which I captured on video:

Adam Smith was the CFO of an Arizona-based medical device manufacturer. Smith waited in the drive-thru to receive free water and berate a Chick-fil-A employee. Smith later posted another video, apologizing to the employee.

Some gay rights activists have seen the hypocrisy in the protests. Most notable of which being internet sensation Antoine Dodson. (Dodson became famous overnight when he appeared on a news station in Hunstsville, Ala., to discuss the attempted rape of his sister.) Dodson spoke to a Birmingham, Ala., talk show, “The Matt Murphy Show,” and said that the gay community is “becoming bullies.”
