Great... no I gotta make a run to Chick-Fil-A

As a militant atheist, I hate religious businesses like Chick-Fil-A & absolutely refuse to patronize them. Except... My God! Those are some tasty chicken sandwiches and Sweet Jesus! I love those fries! If they replaced the wafers & wine with ChickFilA sandwich & lemonade, I'd go to communion every Sunday.

for you folks missing chik-fil-a (I'm among them), McDonald's (that's right) southern chicken sandwich is a fairly accurate facsimile (ask for extra pickles).

Chick-Fil-A is a classic example of how fast food SHOULD be done.

A. Excellent customer service.
B. Great product
C. Clean restaurant
D. Awesome

I swear I think I'm going to go apply for Chick-Fil-A. Sure, I won't make as much money as I did elsewhere, but I'll be happy. Every time I'm there the people working the restaurant are naturally happy, it isn't even a front.

/best fast food restaurant ever.
//Good on you non-crazy-Christians

I've heard the legend that is In-N-Out.

As soon as I'm in the vicinity of one (I'm east coast), I will binge on the greatness.

So yeah, I guess I should say "greatest Southeast US fast food restaurant ever"

I like Chickfila's food, but I've never had great service there that I can remember. The one I go to has some really snobby gay guys and ghetto chicks that work there and they act like it's killing them to even speak to you let alone take your order. But, it is in a mall, so maybe that's why.
 
2009-09-08 09:49:15 PM  
You know how when you say "Thank you," at Chik-Fil-A they answer "My pleasure," You should totally say to the hottest girl working there, Thanks for that sloppy blow job last night," just so you can hear her say "My pleasure,"

You really can't say Chick-Fil-A is better than In-N-Out burger or vice versa. In-N-Out has phenomenal burgers, great shakes, and fresh cut fries. Chick-Fil-A has phenomenal chicken sandwiches, great shakes, and waffle fries. And breakfast.

They're both great in their own right.

Had no idea the company was actively supporting fundies. I assume you have evidence?

That, plus the fact the chicken sometimes tastes heavily of some nitrite solution, bolsters my decision to never eat there.

Yeah, don't you hate THOSE people. You know the ones who live their faith and contribute to institutions which share their values. I think they are commies or hippies. Maybe some kind of terrorist.

We should start a committee maybe in the House of Representatives to investigate their unamerican ways. Yeah, we could call it the House Committee on Unamerican Activities. Maybe we can find a junior senator from ... say Wisconsin to head it up and ferret out these traitors.


Nobody says they're unamerican... we just don't want to support them financially. Especially those of us whom they would boycott, themselves :) But turnabout is never fair play, is it?

That's true. I just eat(ate) their chicken salad sandwiches instead of the regular chicken patties. But I'll put up with some more inconvenience and stay away, if they're actively supporting the likes of James Dobson. (If individuals in the company do, that's their own business; I just care if the company is doing it)

If someone comes up with similar dirt on Whataburger, however, I'm gonna cry.

Have you ever actually been to a Whataburger? They're worse. They have signs about religion, keeping "in god we trust" all over the place.

I will still gladly eat both however. It's not about your beliefs, it's about your food. I'm not going to punish myself because of someone else's beliefs, and skipping out on Chik fil A would be punishment.

If you have a free-standing store near you, try that one. The typical mall food court's (lack of) service standards tend to trump Chick-fil-A's service standards. Also, Chick-fil-A employees are not typically responsible for the cleanliness of the common areas of the food court, namely the tables.

As far as the whole "chicken with a side of Jesus" issue, I have this to say: I cannot agree with some of the causes that Chick-fil-A supports. Some, not all; they do contribute to the community in positive ways regardless of political or religious beliefs. That said, it is their right to fund/support the causes that I disagree with, and as far as I'm concerned I pay them for their chicken... their wonderful, delicious chicken. Sure it's rationalizing, but I just don't feel THAT strongly enough to forgo a good product because a fraction of the proceeds is used counter to my opinions. It would be different if I disagreed with the product, but why would I want to disagree with those lovely chicken nuggets?

If there comes a time when I really feel strongly about where the money is going (and if any of you feel that way right now), then there's always this "karma" system I heard about once to counter the indirect funding of opposing viewpoints. For whatever amounts of my money that they could use to further the causes in question, I can simply contribute a comparable amount to an opposing organization, preferably one more in line with my opinions. It has a net effect of neutralizing my contribution. Then, I'm free to add more if I like.

WTF is with the pickle hate? Eat it, its good for you. High in potassium and sodium. And don't forget, you actually NEED sodium (especially those of us who actually work). I sweat salt all day, so, more pickles. Plus, the potassium prevents cramps.

I found out about which organizations they give money to - not on purpose, just by chance - before I ever went there. Which means that I have still not ever been there, and plan on never going there, and if by some odd twist of circumstance I ever do find myself physically inside one of their restaurants, I will never give them a single red cent of my money.

There's only one of them in my city, and it shares a shopping center with a Wendy's, so when I want delicious chicken it's a spicy chicken sandwich from Wendy's for me. With the added bonus of not helping to fund the american taliban. Win-win!

my last summer of high school, i worked at a game room in a mall. job was mostly waxing pinball tables and unjamming quarters out of the machines that were clearly labeled "tokens only." also had to help people feed their money into the token machine.

anyhow, a hot redhead worked at the chick-fil-a around the corner and she accidentally give me too many contest game pieces when my boss sent me over to buy a small fry and a cup of ice water.

"every card a winner" except that the contest involved answering ridiculous trivia question, then scratching off the correct response. so the boss sent me over to the bookstore to buy the 1980 world almanac fact book.

armed with the book and a nickel, we'd answer the questions properly, then file the card by prize. didn't pay for lunch for about a month.

we'd get more cards every time we picked up free food.

i think i took her to see the heavy metal movie. (pops)

Glimmerous Fop: It's pretty easy to have a healthy meal at Chik-Fil-A, too. A grilled chicken sandwich and a glass of water there will fill you up nicely, and you'll consume fewer than 300 calories for your trouble. It's also delicious.


True, but a chicken sandwich with chick-fil-a sauce and waffle fries with more chick-fil-a sauce is even more delicious. Thus proving that more calories = more delicious.

Uh, what? I've been in a couple Whataburgers down here in Texas, and of course through the drive-throughs a number of times. Never noticed that. If they're all over the place, I must not have paid attention. Regardless, that's not like the company's giving money to people who preach intolerance.
