Chick-fil-a's owners break my heart. They make an excellent product, treat their employees exceptionally well, run the business with a conscience rather than solely for profit motive, and are, in most respects, excellent and admirable people.

But, they are also bigots, and that cannot be overlooked or excused.

Saddest of all is that it is so farking unecessary. They take this stance on gay marriage because they believe it conforms to their Chritistian beiliefs, yet Christ never said ANYTHING about gays, much less gay marriage and in fact the bible itself is silent on the subject except for one ambigious line in Leviticus (back among the prohibitions on shrimp eating and wearing cotton-poly blend clothes) and one oblique reference by Paul, who was actually condemning the general moral excesses of NERO for fark's sake. (and Paul was almost certainly a self-hating closet case himself who thought EVERYBODY should be celibate , because why make babies when christ was coming back before the end of that generation anyway? Since he blew that call so badly I wonder if he really should be christianity's go-to guy on this stuff anyway)

Screw em. Their kids won't care, because their kids are growing up in a different generation that isn't scared of gay people. Let the bigots whine about Kermit and Miss Piggy. It just makes them look more marginalized and ridiculous. I hope they make a huge fuss about this, all the better.

WanPhat: Which side is the intolerance on?


The side that is bigoted against gay people.

Look, I don't care what an individual's personal beliefs are, but the Cathy family has created a wing of their business that's devoted to supporting these "family friendly" (read: anti-gay) organizations.

When the company itself, that is, Chick-fil-A, is funding these hate groups, that's more than just the personal views of the CEO. That's where I have a problem.

I do not want any of my money going to fund bigotry. Chick-fil-A is supporting bigotry. Funding bigotry.
Just as I wouldn't go to a place called "N*gger Fried Chicken". Because that's supporting bigotry.

hbk72777: Smoky Dragon Dish: Muppets are irrelevant and past it's prime.
Chick-Fil-A is irrelevant and never had a prime.

I think I've been to Chick-Fil-A once or twice in my life and I was not impressed. My kids don't like Sesame Street, Muppets, etc.

Having said that, I'm not going to question every business that I do business with to make sure their political agenda fits with mine perfectly. Do you support gay marriage? Do you support a woman's right to choose? Who did you vote for for President? Are you a Democrat, Republican? Do you support RON PAUL? Death penality? Are you an atheist, Christian, Muslem, Jew, Hindu, etc.? Did you support the Iraqi war? Do you support our troops? Do you employ illegal aliens? Does anyone in your supply chain employ illegal aliens. Made in America?

Yes, if I find out some business is supporting some organization that morally offends me, I'll be less likely to go there. But I can't survey everyone, and I am fairly sure many businesses support causes I may disagree with.

/ Sort of went off on a little tangent.

Exactly. It's sad people only support others who think exactly like them. If there is even one thing they disagree with, it's BOYCOTT TIME!


This isn't accurate at all. I do not 'survey' businesses to ensure their beliefs align with mine before giving them my money. What I do do is pay attention when someone loudly and proudly proclaims their intolerance. This takes almost no effort on my part and not supporting said business also takes no effort.

It's also important to remember that this isn't an all or nothing proposition. Generally speaking, people are quite capable of assigning varying degrees of importance to an issue. For instance, if 'Company X' only supports 'City College' instead of 'State' because those boys at State are big mean poopy heads...who gives a fark?

But when 'Company X' is very proud of their stance of anti-gay rights, then I tend to give the issue a little more weight.

Hey, if you own a company and you aren't ashamed of your beliefs and want everyone to know what those beliefs are, then more power to you. But don't start crying when some people start saying "Huh. I never knew they were so farking stupid. Guess I'll go to 'Company Z'".

WanPhat: Meanwhile, very few companies or organizations with anti-gay-marriage leanings have severed ties with Starbucks or Levis or other companies that have come out in support of gay marriage. Could it be because they are tolerant of others' beliefs and/or don't think you should make your purchasing decisions based on the social beliefs of some company's executive?

The one that isn't contributing to organizations that fight every day to strip rights away from citizens based upon their sexual orientation.

So we're supposed to tolerate the intolerant? Argument fail. Your personal beliefs are irrelevant, and I really don't care about them. The point I do, OTOH, is when you start using your personal beliefs to affect the lives of others who have done nothing wrong.

This.

History will look back on people who have discriminated, lobbied against, and persecuted people for their sexual orientation with the same horror and shame as they do those who did the same to people because of the color of their skin, or the gender they were born with.

I'm opposed to any sort of fundamentalism that espouses violence or hatred, regardless of what religion it is. Not all Muslims are violent or hateful. Just as not all Christians are. Some, however, are hateful without being violent.

I would classify those who fight against gay marriage, like the Cathy family, as being bigots.

bhcompy: Those aren't "hate groups". None of them are violent, they're just anti-gay. Do they do shady things(misrepresent research, etc)? Sure, but I don't consider that "hate" as defined by "hate group", "hate crimes", etc. Sea Shepherd is more of a hate group than these guys.


Since when do you have to be violent to be hateful?

The violent part of the term "hate crime" is the "crime" part, not the "hate" part. The "hate" part is just the motivation. Violence is an act, Hate is a thought.

I say when the purpose of a group is to deny a set of people their Constitutionally-Protected rights for whatever reason, then it's accurate to label them as a "hate group." I can't think of any other way to reconcile the statement "I don't like what you do, therefore I want to use the law to prevent you from having the same rights as me" with any other description than "hate."

LOL. Funny you mention this. I have a cousin who is a Jesus freak and also anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-everything else, and a few days ago she got on the God kick, and decided to preach at me about the evils of gay marriage and how it was against God's law, blah blah blabbity-blah... and how it said so in the bible, to which I calmly replied "Really? Show me where." She of course, couldn't produce the goods. She just got all red in the face, and that was the end of the discussion.

She made a FB post awhile back about how gay people shouldn't be allowed to adopt because they would molest their kids. To this, I responded with a laundry list of about a dozen cases of fine, upstanding Christian ministers molesting their adopted kids, which was disturbingly easy to do. (not to mention that whole Catholic church thing.) Then I un-friended her dumb ass.

She's also a big follower of televangelist Jesse Duplantis, who's being investigated for fraud.

As the bigots in a generation die out, their beliefs go with them. Sure, some of their offspring hold the same beliefs but in fewer numbers. The radicalized Christian organizations (Dominionism included) are more prominent because they are on the losing side of history. This isn't the 1950's any more people. Deal with it.

APPARENTLY somebody in one of these churches or organizations gave their followers the directive to patronize the HELL out of Chick-Fil-A today. I pass one on my way to work every morning, and this morning, it was wrapped around the block waiting for people to get through the drive-thru.

Smoky Dragon Dish: I think it's simpler than that. A marriage is a contract. Always has been, always will be.

The Contract Clause appears in the United States Constitution, Article I, section 10, clause 1. It states:

No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

The Muppets have always been about inclusiveness and non-discrimination.

In the end, The Henson Company had to do it, as Chick-Fil-A's position of hate and segregation went against the very core beliefs that the Henson Company was founded on.

I, for one, am more than happy that they did so.

That's all you really needed. Difference is that ChickFilA made its stance quite public about how the correct definition of marriage is the biblical definition.

I've never seen a muppet toy in any of the hundreds of the Chic-fil-a kids meals I've bought for my kids. Lately, all I seen is booklets in the Chic-fil-a kids meals. And what toys my kids have received in their Chic-fil-a kids meal usually are tradied for a kid's ice cream cone.
