While a change in the law would benefit gay couples greatly, it costs straight people nothing, so there is no legitimate reason for us to oppose it.

When someone wants to make others miserable while gaining no benefit for themselves or one's family, that's just being an asshole.



I agree. Like I said, I see him as a "Pious asshole". "Sanctimonious asshole" would also apply, IMO.

I've read all these posts and I can't help thinking that just maybe this fella has a guilty secret. If he bans gay people from his outlets there's less chance of a random encounter he had at the Blue Oyster Club walking in and saying "Oooh-I didn't recognise you without the leather!"

There's an old saying-'The frightened dog barks the loudest'.

It's my understanding that the CEO never "took a stand against homosexuality." He simply expressed his PERSONAL opinion on gay marraige. It has nothing to do with the resteraunt. It's everyone else who is turning this thing into a conspiracy. It's stupid. Whether you like his beliefs or not he still has a right to express them. To try and ban the resteraunt because you don't like the way the owner sees the world is complete bullshit.

I was talking about this a couple days ago, and one of the people in the discussion was a homosexual black male.....this is what he said: "I ate Chick-Fil-A for lunch today. I may be gay but I'm still black and I love my fuckin Chicken!"

Anyone ever hear of the phrase "free speech?"



I have to agree with this. He has the right to express his views just like the rest of us do.

Yes, but he does more than just talk. Some small percentage of every dollar you spend there goes to support ultra-conservative causes. And now that he has told us about it, we are morally responsible for what we do with that information.

Mike Huckabee has a right to his opinion too, but it's a bastardization of journalism when he intervenes in a story and gives Fox News a bigger controversy to report on. He was the one who made this into a huge national story. I can't believe how few people are calling him out on his role in all this.

I do not eat there so my money does not support his cause. Anyone can protest against him and his views by either eating there or not. If we buy at Wal Mart we are basically supporting China. We keep Americans in jobs here but most of the stuff comes from China. China's view on citizens rights are not what they should be either. Yet we don't line up and protest Wal Mart.

I think anyone should be able to marry anyone they choose without any kind of repercussions. Unless it is you cousin-sister-brother ect.

I have plenty of issues with China, and with our trade policies in general, but that's a topic for another day and another thread. ;)

If it was just what the CEO said it be one thing but the fact that so many people have rallied behind him and a flocking to the place to support what he said makes me ne'er want to eat there just like the civil rights movement makes me never want to go to mississippi I don't like bigots and I avoid the places the frequent

Well if you think about it, he has a right to voice his opinion and support the groups he believes in. I sincerely don't believe he hates anyone. I agree with his opinion and yet have several Gay friends and family members that I Love just the same.

As far as not supporting the business or its charities. I would say at best he gives 10% to charities and if you chicken sandwhich makes up 1/1000 of a penny that you dont want to go to charities then I dont think anyone really minds you voicing your opinion with your wallet.

I think the majority of support has been for him to have a right to free speech.

I didn't think it could be done.

didnt read all the comments but im thinking this is genius marketing if he has a fast food chicken chain that caters to the gays. he can get them both buying chicken as a boycott/protest against the other and sell more chicken with the free publicity from such an environment.

I'm sorry but no u don't love them let's not pretend. If u loved them u would want them to be happy and to have the same rights as everyone else but u don't so you don't. The thing about free speech is what bigots always hide behind but it's not him exercising his right to free speech it's him abusing it. Things like this hurt other people and I don't care what rights you have that's never ok.

What does that have to do with this thread topic? The First Amendment says nothing about protecting anyone from non-governmental criticism, unfavorable media coverage, protests, boycotts, etc. Anyone who brings up a controversial subject is fair game.

Yes, more than once.

He also strongly implied that he would not promote someone into upper management who got divorced and remarried (straight). That policy is illegal. You can't run a company like a religious organization. They're not the same thing.
.


I have read through this thread and its not that he doesn't support gay marriage that would make me stop going there... Whats in bold is probably if anything would make me stop going.. Its not like i really go there much anyway.. Thats just not right and now those kinds of things should not be mixed with business.. He doesn't know the situation or anything that may have happened that husband or wife could have been abusive or not faithful.. anything... If someone is going to do something like that they just shouldn't be in charge of a business.. that can be filed as discrimination still... am i right? and the organizations that money goes too i probably wouldn't agree with any of them and that can possibly stop me from going there also i would have to look at them.

And Karen J i must say you have made some really good points throughout this thread.. and i understand you have the right to disagree with this guy just like he has the right to disagree with gay marriage but at the same time i think protests and graffiti is a bit too much over a fast food restaurant...
I work at the childrens place in the mall so i am in the mall often and we do have a chick fil a restaurant there and they keep security gaurds at that location all of the hours of the mall...... should a fast food restaurant really have to be gaurded? Like seriously? I guess only in America huh.... americans sure do take their fast food seriously. Like just the other day i was on the bus to work and this little 'ol man was like im boycotting chick fil a!! Just shouting about it on the bus.. is that REALLY necessary?
