    More confrontation outside Chicago Chick-fil-A

    More confrontation outside Chicago Chick-fil-A

    There was another protest outside the Chicago Chick-fil-A last night, but unlike the other day when Anne filmed, there were protesters on each side of the issue.

    Rebel Pundit has the video, involving Father Gerald O’Reilly being jeered by anti-Chick-fil-A protesters and seemingly led away by police so as to avoid the confrontation:

    There isn’t much available online about O’Reilly, but he was profiled in a 2010 Chicago Archdiocese publication.

    Following up on a theme, would this get more coverage or be viewed differently if the roles were reversed?

    Was it unnecessarily provocative for the Father to walk into the protest line?  He could have prayed off to the side, although who knows, that may have led to a similar reaction.

    You could just feel the “tolerance” oozing out of the crowd. Who was that nasty “woman” who kept shouting “hateful bigot” over and over again? Was she advertising her position?

    Yeah, he could have sat quietly on the sidewalk reading his Bible. No one would have bothered him then.
