Did I mention the freedom of speech?


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.

Yeah I mean fair game. But he had every right to say it. Just as you have every right to disagree.

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?

Boycotting the entire sandwich is a bit extreme.
I might boycott the pickles on alternate Wednesdays.

It appears that they are finally making the smart move and getting out of the political activism business:

They had no choice because they were losing money. I still will not eat there, though. I never ate there before the fiasco, so it is no loss to me or them.

Dan Cathy is back in the headlines with his religious beliefs:

I remember when eating a chicken sandwich wasn't such a big deal; but then again, I'm kind of getting old, lol

LOL aeri, I agree with you about eating a chicken sandwich shouldn't be that big of a deal.
This guy just needs to stop and keep his religious beliefs with HIS FAMILY AND PERSONAL LIFE! Not at work....

There is a time and place for everything...... and work and religious beliefs are not two things that should be incorporated together..

Dan Cathy is back in the headlines with his religious beliefs:


Without boring everyone to death with details, it appears that the company has communicated intentionally conflicting messages recently, trying to placate both sides, after some conservative groups started talking about boycotting the chain for backing down from their original position. :rolleyes:

Personally, I don't give a fuck what the CEO / founder believes or does in his own personal life, as long as he doesn't publicly contribute corporate money to causes that I believe are harmful, or mistreats employees or customers, in the name of spreading a particular religious point of view. He can spend all his free time studying Mayan theology or JFK conspiracy theories, for all I care. Have a blast, Dan! Knock yourself out. Whatthefuckever.

I remember when eating a chicken sandwich wasn't such a big deal; but then again, I'm kind of getting old, lol


When I go in a typical business, I have no idea what political or religious causes the owners support, and there is usually no easy way to find out. I like it that way, because I have no moral responsibility to take that unknowable information into consideration when deciding where to spend my money. That's the way the system is supposed to work.

I have a feeling this company wishes it could turn back time and not get publicly involved in this issue, but it's too late to unscramble that egg. They put one hand on the proverbial tar baby, and now there is no way to turn loose of it. I see no end to this.

I hope this ridiculous turn of events will serve as a warning to other businesses. Stick to what you know! Don't make everything political!
Life is short. Try to spend most of it on the good stuff.

I do not eat at Chick-fil-A, but if I did I would now make the association of my money going to fund anti-gay legislation via my purchase of their product.

He has a right to his personal opinion. As a business person, he should have known better and kept his trap shut. Gay marriage is one of those issues the powers that be love to use to get the masses all riled up. He is a useful idiot.

Fuck Bigots & Homophobes, & Fuck Fast Food Chicken too.
