The Independence Hall Tea Party Association called Tuesday for a month-long "BuyCott" for Chick-fil-A beginning Aug. 1. This is the latest local reaction to a statement by the fast food restaurant's president supporting traditional marriage, which made national headlines and sparked calls for a boycott in some communities.

“We believe thousands of our members and friends will show their support for Chick-fil-A by dining at Chick-fil-A restaurants tomorrow and throughout the month of August,” said Tea Party Association President, Teri Adams.

Adams’ organization is the largest independent Tea Party group, with members in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.

Supporters gathered at a San Fernando Valley Chick-fil-A restaurant Wednesday morning to rally behind the chain after its president recently said he does not support gay marriage.

The San Fernando Valley Patriots, an affiliate of the national Tea Party, held the rally and ate breakfast at 7 a.m. at a Chick-fil-A in the 8800 block of Tampa Avenue.

“This really isn’t about the chicken, it’s not even about the product, it’s just about whether the person who is the executive of a company can still speak his mind,” said [politician Mike] Huckabee. “We expect that every day from the CEOs of Apple and Starbucks and Ben & Jerry’s, and it ought to be the same set of rules applied to a person who is a conservative, and in this case, an evangelical Christian.”

From "Tea party group shows support for Chick-fil-A" by Zack Southwell, Monroe Louisiana News Star 8/2/12

Members of the Northeast Louisiana Tea Party braved Wednesday's heat as they stood outside the Chick-fil-A restaurant on Thomas Road in West Monroe.

Nell Bradley, a member of NELTP, said the show of support is part of a nationwide movement.

"We are out here to show our support for Mr. Cathy's right to free speech," Bradley said. She admitted the group chose to stand outside around noon Wednesday because the lunchtime rush on Thomas Road would give the group high visibility.

"We believe in the (U.S.) Constitution," Bradley said. "We're grass roots, (but) we're not stupid. We're concerned about where our country's going."
