Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy is in hot oil after a recent interview with Baptist Press. Surprisingly, everyone was surprised that a person being interviewed by Baptist Press had this to say about the definition of marriage…
"I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say 'we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage' and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."
If gay marriage invites God's judgement, Cathy's stance invited the even more wrathful judgement of gay marriage proponents, including Boston mayor Tom Menino and the Muppets. That, in turn, invited Rick Santorum to tweet about being pro-chicken. Then Chick-fil-A trolled their own Facebook page.
Now what was an invite-only judgement party is raging out of control in that free speech circle of hell we call Twitter. Here are the best of the worst and worst of the best…
My kids are only allowed to bully teens who work at Chick-fil-a.

I'd marry a dude for a Chick-fil-A sandwich and waffle fries right now.

How awesome would it be if Chick-fil-A turned out to be a front buried within a German multinational heavily involved in the meth trade?

"Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values," says Rahm Emanuel. Yeah, 1/3rd of Chick-fil-A management hasn't been charged with corruption.

Score! Just got this Chick-Fil-A coupon: two chicken biscuits for the bride-price of a hundred foreskins of the Philistines!

Oh sure, the Muppets left Chick Fil A because of "equality." It had NOTHING to do with the place dismembering and frying Gonzo's chickens.

It's 2012. Frankly, I'd be disappointed if candidates weren't picking sides in theological battles between fast food restaurants and muppets

Let's have a "Take a Boy Scout to Chick-fil-A Day." Liberal heads will explode…
