What really happened at the homosexual 'kiss-in' at Chick-fil-A in Massachusetts
Revealing view of homosexual movement -- and outrageous media bias. Police look the other way.

on Aug. 3.
As soon as the "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" was annnounced, the national homosexual movement quickly decided to counter the support Chick-fil-A got from mainstream America by a simultaneous mass gross-out "kiss-in" protests in Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country. If there are families around, so much the better, it seemed.
Public "kiss-ins" are a strategy homosexual activists have been developing over recent years to both intimidate and disgust the general public and also businesses they wish to target. It's a statement of "You'd better accept us exactly as we are." Much like the "Act-Up" stunts of the 1980s, it's also meant as a show of power. But now, with increased support from the mainstream media (and increasingly pro-gay police) it's become easier for them to do, and thus even more effective. By widely publicizing them in advance, the media helps legitimize it and increases the general intimidation value.
Attempt to "answer back" massive outpouring for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day
What happened at the "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" across the country was very shocking to the liberal establishment and the homosexual movement in particular. As many saw, thousands of people across America jammed into Chick-Fil-a restaurants not so much to eat but to make a statement about both traditional values and the freedom of expression -- both of which are under attack by the left (and which a lot of people have had enough of). This was their chance to do be counted.
And emotions were particularly high here in Massachusetts over it. After all, it was the bizarre, offensive letter from Boston Mayor Thomas Menino that started it all off.
So despite the fact that there was almost nothing in the mainstream media beforehand about the Appreciation Day, people from across the state crammed into the few Chick-fil-a restaurants in Massachusetts. At the Chick-fil-A in the Burlington Mall, just outside of Boston, we talked to people who came all the way from Cape Cod and Springfield, and even from other states, though it was the middle of a work day. There was definitely a statement being made.
The media's hype for the homosexual "kiss-in"
Even before the August 1 "Appreciation Day" the local media was hyping the "kiss-in" to take place two days later. You could feel the disdain that the mainstream media had for the success of "Appreciation Day." They reveled in anticipation of the upcoming "kiss-in" as a big counter-event.
It seemed that every newspaper story reporting on the "Appreciation Day" crowds also mentioned the upcoming "kiss-in." And the hype continued. Almost daily there was something in the Boston Globe, the Boston Herald, or on the TV news about it. Although homosexual groups were quoted and interviewed widely, to our knowledge, no pro-family groups were quoted at all.
According to the press reports, the major target in Massachusetts -- the world gateway to "gay marriage" -- was the Chick-fil-A in the Burlington Mall around dinner time on August 3. The Boston Herald even interviewed the fringe homosexual group "Join the Impact" which helped organize terror attacks on a downtown Boston church and at a recent Tea Party event on the Boston Common. They said they were hoping for 500 people at the Burlington mall. The media ate it up.
The protest -- ten minutes of gross behavior and adolescent weirdness
That evening at the Burlington Mall food court, the first things one noticed were some uniformed Burlington police and also several uniformed mall cops. The mall cops approached anyone they suspected was a reporter and told them they couldn't take photos or videos.
(For the flood of people on "Appreciation Day" there were no police that we could see and maybe three mall cops. And lots of people took photos and videos the entire time with no trouble.)
Around 7:45 pm about a dozen or so activists suddenly came marching into the food court and gathered in front of Chick-fil-A.
They began yelling, chanting, and kissing each other as publicly as possible. Several had signs pinned to their clothes and danced around screaming slogans about "bigotry" and "homophobia." A few of them pulled out cameras and started taking pictures and videos of it all. As with many homosexual "public actions" it looked a lot like a bunch of immature adolescents.
What was almost more surprising was the behavior of the police and the mall cops. Rather than protect the patrons from the loud, bizarre, and offensive spectacle, the cops did the opposite. The police gave the "protesters" all the room they needed for their activity and stood on the perimeter to keep customers from coming close or interfering with them! Nor did they discourage the "gay" activists from taking photos or videos, as they had with everyone else.
After five or ten minutes the "protesters" re-grouped and marched out of the food court. They began parading through the mall, continuing to scream and chant their slogans. The police simply followed them but didn't bother them. Customers in the mall were clearly startled and most did their best to get away from them.
One expected that these activists, who were clearly there to cause trouble, would be charged by the police with disturbing the peace, trespassing, or something of that nature. But the police seemed to have no interest in even challenging them. It's hard to imagine that anyone else could have ever gotten away with that.
It was eerily reminiscent of the recent Boston Common Tea Party event where the Boston Police stood to the side and allowed homosexual activist rioters disrupt the Tea Party speeches with obscene screaming and chanting.
Lopsided media coverage (So what's new?)
Judging from the mainstream newspaper accounts the next day, one would have thought that this was a smashing success on a par with the "Appreciation Day" two days earlier, but much more sophisticated and powerful. The Boston Herald devoted a full page to it. The Boston Globe went into great detail about the various homosexual groups and individuals involved, and the signs and slogans they used, etc.
Interestingly, about an hour after the demonstration a Boston Globe reporter phoned MassResistance to ask if we had been the ones who called for the police to be there. (Of course not!) He then asked for our reaction to it all. We told him. But no quotes from us or pro-family sources appeared in either the subsequent Globe article or Herald. Hmmm . . . probably not enough space.
A few lessons learned
There are at least a few things to be learned from all this. The pro-family sentiment is much greater than the establishment wants us to believe. The homosexual movement is obsessed with pushing their sexual "identity" on the public as bluntly as possible. The police in general are either in solidarity with or are afraid of this movement and cannot be counted on to protect the public in this regard. And the media is even more biased than most people realize, and simply cannot be believed when it comes to these issues.
