The news is the stuff of headline-writers’ dream:
“Chicken Lips Are Scarce”
“Great gay kiss-off lays a gigantic egg”
So screams a New York Post article by Andrea Peyser on yesterday’s “Kiss Off” protest launched by homosexual activists across the United States against the restaurant chain Chick-fil-A. Peyser writes:
This was billed as the greatest protest since Occupy Wall Street. Thousands of scantily clad gay men and lesbians said they’d lock lips in a coast-to-coast red-hot make-out session.
They were to blast anti-gay-marriage comments made by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy. But gays preferred staying home to watch “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
Tumbleweeds could have rolled through the Paramus Park Mall in New Jersey yesterday as a symbol for the lack of stamina in the national kissing campaign.
From Georgia to California, protests drew yawns, not saliva.
Even in Atlanta, the home of Chick-fil-A, only two dozen kissers showed up. And there was a similar lack of necking in Chicago, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and San Francisco.
Susan Duclos of Wake Up America, Aug. 4, 2012, observes that “The size of the two events are not the only compare and contrast moment though, the pictures also tell a story of a very different type of crowd. One showing quiet but massive support while the other an in-your-face type of mentality.”
Below are three pics to compare and contrast.
The first pic (below) was from Friday’s Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day (Via Twitchy), which is typical of the scene at other Chick-Fil-A restaurants across America
Now contrast the Chick-fil-A supporters with these two pix from yesterday’s Gay Activist Protest “Kiss Off” (Via PJ Tatler):
There are more Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day pictures over at Twitchy (scroll down for dozens of them), and more photos taken on the “Kiss Off” Day over at PJ Tatler.
