Pat Boone Swings By Chick-Fil-A Protest In Hollywood For A Bite

Third Rail Media was at the demonstration at the Hollywood Chick-Fil-A on Sunset and Highland Boulevard. We were surprised to see milquetoast icon Pat Boone among those supporting the bigoted chain. Not that we didn’t think he was a right-winger—we just didn’t know he was still alive!

Boone, 78, gave conflicting statements, saying both that “some of my very best friends have been and are gay”—never a good opening line—and “I think marriage was something instituted by God.”

The “Wang Dang Taffy-Apple Tango” singer was joined by the Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, who opined that “homosexual got involved with the civil rights movement because they wanted to use black people for their own personal gain—They didn’t care about black people. [they were] just taking advantage of them at the time.”

Using people’s spiritual needs to advance your own agenda? Sounds right up your alley, Padre.

      The bigger news is that Pat Boone is still alive.

      Pat Boone, benefiting from bigotry in every era. When will he shuffle off this mortal coil? Well, I suppose that’s what the greasy chicken’s for.

      The best part of all this is, about 10% of the people in those long lines is gay.

      Ugh, these ignorant homophones make me sick. It’s so sad that they use ancient myth written by man thousands of years ago and “free speech” to protect their hate for anything they don’t understand. We need more love, not bigots using religion as an excuse to bash what they don’t understand. >_< Wishful thinking?

      “The man who views the world at 50 exactly as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.” If, at 78, you remain proudly un-evolved and have picked up no human decency, you never will.

      If he’s such a good Christian how do you explain his beating Justin Timberlake to the “dick in a box” routine by decades?

      Leave us not also forget his heavy metal album or should we chalk that up to living next door to Ozzy and the rest of the Osbournes too long?

      Wow things must be getting really serious if they had to drag out the big guns. Boone hasn’t done anything but informercials for oldies and life alert necklaces for something like 20 years. I’ll bet the majority of people who even know who he is thought he died 10 or 15 years ago. Once the radio stations started playing R&B and black artists Boone’s career of covering their material was pretty much over.

      Later that night– having already had one supernatural experience encountering the ancient mummy known as Pat Boone– the Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson was haunted by the ghost of Bayard Rustin.

      The more the homophobes eat there to show “support”, the sooner their
      increasingly clogged arteries will rid us of them. The Lord works in
      mysterious ways.

      The people in that video are scary ignorant. Gay and gay supportive people should avoid going to a Chick-Fil-A restaurant for their own safety.

      I’d avoiding going there for my own arteries! I’d have to run a bit over three and a half miles to burn off one Chick-Fill-A chicken sandwich. If you add a side order of cole slaw (medium, the smallest they have), 6 miles would not be nearly enough.

      Besides, I do things for fun where being at the 1% body fat level is a distinct advantage. Going to Chick-Fil-A is asking for trouble.

      If you are gay, and have convictions and want to be treated as an equal (you should be!)….exercise your convictions, integrity and values and boycott this place. Trust me, the chicken is frozen (friend worked there for 2 years). You are truly not missing much. They donate millions to causes that destroy our livelihood, so if you believe you should be treated as an equal to others…avoid this establishment, and go somewhere better, where you can have peace of mind and not feel like a sell out. That’s my 2 cents anyways.

      I agree; that randy, bogus, oriental (music-rip-off-artist) old queen Pat Boone is still alive?!?

      “Instituted by god?” Which one? There are lots of them. Public declarations of commitment have been around as long as civilization. The fact that the christians had to ban gay marriage when they came to power in the Roman empire shows that it predates your pathetic deity. Suck on that, Pat.

      @SOLUS: I remember reading this in Rock Hudson’s bio and thinking it was really weird. Didn’t he just show up out of the blue and hover over Rock every day? He was probably trying to save Rock’s poor gay soul before entering the pearly gates or hoping that Rock would turn straight on his deathbed.
