If you disagree with the CFA guy, then quit eating there. Are they breaking any laws? No

Until they don't serve a gay person, they are only voicing their opinion. And those that disagree with it are trying to force them to change it. So much for respect of diversity.

This. I'm bisexual, work hard for GLBT rights in a corporate advocacy group and speak at national events on the subject and I still don't mind Chick-Fil-A having their own beliefs. I eat there anyway. That way, they can be tainted by my gaydollars and I can enjoy delicious chicken.I have no problem with this.

Man, I just discovered that in Houston. That's some good farking chicken.

Popeye's used to be my only place. Now Church's has fried okra (love me some fried okra), and Raisin' Cane's is just insanely good. No desire whatsoever for Chick-fil-A, before or after their homophobic remarks.

They're perfectly allowed to have and voice their opinions, just as we're perfectly allowed to mock them for it.

I see no problem here.

And to vote with our dollar.

Not that I would ever eat at Chick-Fil-A as long as there is a Raising Canes nearby, but those gay-hating cretins will never get another dollar out of me now under any circumstances.

That's the American way.

Right, just like organizations to which Chick Fil A donates money respect diversity so much that they try to "straighten" homosexuals, force things off of TV that they don't like, and actively oppose diversity in education.

No, you see, it's like the Klan merely has a diverse opinion about attractive and successful African Americans. If you don't respect that opinion then *you're* the bigot.

I don't agree with the final line of his way of thought. but I love that he's sticking by his guns. Especially in today's world of giving in to special interest/agenda groups immediately..I like seeing this guy stand by what he honestly believes are his morals.

There was no legitimate business reason for the refusal of service, and so the discrimination was arbitrary and unlawful.

A Houston-based C-f-A once fired a Muslim employee for not participating in prayers. So actually they have broken the law about their dickishly Christian views. (It was settled out of court)

Anyway, good on the Daily show. I've said it before: if my money profits the C-f-A owner, and he turns around and donates it to anti-gay groups, I simply cannot give him my money. And guess what, I'm not pussy-whipped by their fried food , so it's not even a difficult choice.

If you want to eat there because you don't care about gay rights, or you don't think your $5 will make a difference, then that's absolutely fine. But if you think what they're doing is wrong, but you can't stop eating there beccause "oommmg their chicken buscuits soooo good!!11!!", well, that's just pathetic.

profit margins for those places are super low - let's assume their net profit is like 5%. so if i spend $10 there on a meal, i'm giving them a bottom-line profit of 50 cents. so even if they are donating 100% of profits to anti-gay groups, it's not a huge individual contribution on my part (or exclusion via boycott). some industrious gay rights group needs to get a volunteer to stand out in front of each restaurant with a donation bucket and a sign that said "for every $10 you spend in here, you donate $0.50 to an anti-gay group, make up for it here."

make it easy for me to pay to absolve me of my sins and i will. but i'm probably not going to give up the occasional chick-fil-a over this.

Actually, if their total profit on your $10 is 50 cents (you're probably close)... they aren't giving 100% of their profits to said anti-gay groups. More like 1 penny on your 10 dollars, if that.

Still, they're a biggoted orginization and I can go to Popeye's, so I'd never give Chich-Fil-A money anyway.

yeah i was assuming all profits going to donation to highlight the point. why abstain when you can pay to absolve? if you donate a dollar each time, it would do much more good than if you just had boycotted the restaurant. chick-fil-a isn't going to stop donating just because a minority of customers stop coming. they already forgo an entire day of profits each week to align their business with their beliefs, a little boycott isn't going to convince them.

So I have to pay a gay-tax on my Chick-fil-A to make myself feel better about supporting their agenda? How about I just choose to not eat there, go to one of the much better chicken joints located all across town, and then donate a dollar to the LGBT community?

Their food really isn't that good, and not worth supporting them.

You people know exactly the groups of people I'm talking about.. the loudmouth jerks that exist in every special interest group that ruin the message for everyone else. Let a comedian on stage make a joke that a special interest group doesnt like.. and that group bullies the comedian/theater. A movie or tv show with a reference someone doesn't like.. it's a boycotting!
You have to be kidding me if you don't think the people REv Al surrounds himself with don't bully people.. they sure do.

Those bullies in these special interest groups are the ones that sicken me. The ones that go too far.
For the record, I am NOT FOR Cathy and his donations to what amount to (depending on your definition) hate groups. I live in Colorado Springs and hear about Focus on the Family and their camps which humiliate kids suspected of being gay..Cathy donates to that group.. I don't agree.

So I don't agree with the stance of the groups Cathy donates to.. and I also believe (and there's evidence) that too many special interest groups bully people.. so where do we stand?
Very well, have a fine Tuesday. :)

I mean to each his own and all that, but given that Chic-Fil-A is a profit driven organization first and foremost, and that cash is completely fungible, I'd say that you're actively working against whatever you're trying to achieve when you make this argument. They're more than happy to work against your civil rights and laugh at you as they deposit those dirty gaydollars into their own bank accounts. They don't care.

EnviroDude: If you disagree with the CFA guy, then quit eating there. Are they breaking any laws? No

Until they don't serve a gay person, they are only voicing their opinion. And those that disagree with it are trying to force them to change it. So much for respect of diversity.


Yes, and that doesn't stop me from calling them bigots and encouraging everyone I know to not eat there as well.

I love how your respect for diversity extends only so far as trying to force people to accept bigotry as a virtue.

Let a comedian on stage make a joke that a special interest group doesnt like.. and that group bullies the comedian/theater. A movie or tv show with a reference someone doesn't like.. it's a boycotting!


So... you're against people standing up for their beliefs and attempting to change other people's views, and the world as a whole?

Yeah, fark those guys!

EnviroDude:

I agree 100%. Barack Obama is on record stating the marriage should be between a man and a woman. Rabbi's in California, liberal for every other cause, helped to vote down Prop 8 in California. Let alone the thousands of ethnic and racial minorites who also voted no for the Prop 8.

Its not like he's denying gay people work or their dolllar. The mayor of Boston seems like a worse ass than the political troll Nutter in Philly.

2012-07-24 02:17:33 PM  

doyner: Crotchrocket Slim: logistic: they can be tainted by my gaydollars

I mean to each his own and all that, but given that Chic-Fil-A is a profit driven organization first and foremost, and that cash is completely fungible, I'd say that you're actively working against whatever you're trying to achieve when you make this argument. They're more than happy to work against your civil rights and laugh at you as they deposit those dirty gaydollars into their own bank accounts. They don't care.

Anti-gay initiatives fund GOP campaigns. GOP is for cutting corporate taxes. Opposing gay stuff is good for business in their calculation.

Not that their math is necessarily correct, but they support their own business interests and get to be self-righteous, so it's win-win for them.


Yup.

BTW the bolded part is for anyone who wants to forget that the people who do make a profit from Chick-Fil-A WILL use that profit against fellow Americans who don't fit into Chick-Fil-A's vision for America.

To me this all seems like a reason for a private corporation to stay out of politics altogether, even if its individual owners were donating to the exact same campaigns etc. at the same rate.

2012-07-24 02:19:49 PM  

scottydoesntknow: thomps: downstairs: thomps: profit margins for those places are super low - let's assume their net profit is like 5%. so if i spend $10 there on a meal, i'm giving them a bottom-line profit of 50 cents. so even if they are donating 100% of profits to anti-gay groups, it's not a huge individual contribution on my part (or exclusion via boycott). some industrious gay rights group needs to get a volunteer to stand out in front of each restaurant with a donation bucket and a sign that said "for every $10 you spend in here, you donate $0.50 to an anti-gay group, make up for it here."

make it easy for me to pay to absolve me of my sins and i will. but i'm probably not going to give up the occasional chick-fil-a over this.

Actually, if their total profit on your $10 is 50 cents (you're probably close)... they aren't giving 100% of their profits to said anti-gay groups. More like 1 penny on your 10 dollars, if that.

Still, they're a biggoted orginization and I can go to Popeye's, so I'd never give Chich-Fil-A money anyway.

yeah i was assuming all profits going to donation to highlight the point. why abstain when you can pay to absolve? if you donate a dollar each time, it would do much more good than if you just had boycotted the restaurant. chick-fil-a isn't going to stop donating just because a minority of customers stop coming. they already forgo an entire day of profits each week to align their business with their beliefs, a little boycott isn't going to convince them.

So I have to pay a gay-tax on my Chick-fil-A to make myself feel better about supporting their agenda? How about I just choose to not eat there, go to one of the much better chicken joints located all across town, and then donate a dollar to the LGBT community?

Their food really isn't that good, and not worth supporting them.


if there is better chicken all across town, why would you go to chick-fil-a regardless? my argument only applies if you would like to continue clogging your arteries with their boner-inducing sauces.

If you live in any halfway decent city, it's likely there are local restaurants that fry chicken a hell of a lot better than that chain shiat anyway, beit from a colonel or from a reverend. Even if they hate gay marriage, there's little they can do about it, and I'd bet they'd keep it to themselves and serve you good chicken just the same. There's my proposal.

I find it really hard to respect anyone involved in this stupid nontroversy, either the owner of the chain for stupidly mixing religion with business or the idiot protesters that actually think this is worth an organized boycott.

Do we as a country seriously not have anything better to do than worry over whether our fast food has non-food-related political associations? Pick your battles, man.

//Unless Chick Fil-a has crossed a line into something actually illegal, in which case obviously feel free to exact the appropriate penalty.
 
2012-07-24 02:22:26 PM  
Look I don't eat at Chick-fil-a it has been a sacrifice but I don't want hate chicken. I have actually seen them refuse to serve an quasi LGBT event. They had promised to sponsor lunches for a youth choir that was singing at a World AIDS week event a friend was organizing. A day before the event they called and said they were no longer going to provide those lunches because the event didn't represent Chick-Fil-A's values. This is also why I don't get heated up by the Million Moms saying they won't shop at LGBT friendly stores. It is a personal choice.

Do you want to go together, like on a date? Seriously, a date with SkinnyHead to support someone who hates gays would be something I would like to do with my life.

Um *raises hand* do you want to come with me to Cracker Barrel instead? They hate the blacks.

like i said, they already close their doors and refuse customers every single sunday because of those beliefs. according to people up-thread, they turn away catering opportunities due to beliefs. living your life in fear that a couple of your pennies might end up indirectly supporting a cause you don't believe in is too exhausting for me to deal with.

Pretty classic, right there.

I keep seeing conservative commentary like "libtards talk about tolerance and are intolerant". Echoing that we have EnviroDude with this gem.

"If you respected diversity so much, you'd be ok with me espousing bigotry.. or do you want to shut down another viewpoint?!? HUHUh!?!?
"If you were so tolerant, you'd be tolerant of my intolerance because you respect diversity!"

Seriously? That's the best the right has? And by 'the right' I mean 'Fark Independents'.

Personally I don't look into this sort of thing unless the restaurant in question is stupid enough to make a stink about whatever political "values" it wants to foist upon the rest of society.

Frankly half the reason I would not go to Chick-Fil-A even if they had locations near me is they were stupid enough to think people go there to be entrenched in some sort of culture etc.; how can anyone think mixing preaching in with selling cheap chicken is a good thing? Aren't they simply in the fast food business? Why would anyone care what the people running Chick-Fil-A believe if Chick-Fil-A wasn't being a dick to those it "dislikes"? Why would they even get involved in this sort of thing? Dumb dumb dumb.

A big and coordinated enough boycott would put the private business out of business or at the very least, force it to downsize to the point that they wouldn't be giving the personal fortune to idiotic political causes that they now are.

In theory, of course, because in practice I cannot imagine coordinating that many people across that many states for a long enough amount of time to get the boycott to affect the company.

Fear? Way to misread anything, I don't even care about this (there aren't even Chick-Fil-As near me) and somehow I'm still aware of this. CFA fails at PR if nothing else (note: I don't care about the politics of anyone unless they are trying to make a retarded stink about it, I'm objecting to the way people running CFA are making this particular stink); smart businesses don't continue to do business while looking for excuses not to serve customers. In a market where I have politically inactive options this is poor marketing.

In the late 90s, I used to work in marketing for Naturally Fresh (the salad dressing in a mason jar that is sold in the vegetable aisle). Chic Fil A corporate HQ is across the street from there. Truett Cathy came over one day to speak to us, and gave us all autographed copies of his book, as well as copies of the first "Dwarf House" menus from back in the day. Sweet old man. Naturally Fresh was trying to woo Chic Fil A into carrying their sauces and dressings. It was on track to happen until Mr. Cathy found out that Naturally Fresh was owned by the same guys that owned Hooter's. The deal came to a screeching halt.

I don't eat fast food often enough for this to affect me, but if I want a chicken sandwich I'd hit a Zaxby's first. They taste better and while I respect Chic Fil A's right to their beliefs I don't agree with them so I'll spend my dollars elsewhere.

I mean, it's completely (completely) different from their campaign against JC Penney (gay ads), Home Depot (gay pride), Sears (how-to manuals - check it out!), AARP (Pride), and Office Depot (Born this way).

If you're willing to wash your hands afterwards, check out AFA's main page. www.afa.net To the left, OMG Sears, Office Depot, Home Depot, and AARP love the gays and push the "agenda" information.

Please let the AFA know that you're against their boycotts as well, would you? I'd say they're a bit worse since it's an organized campaign to silence people they don't like.

Link

The AFA has boycotted companies for various reasons, most often relating to Christmas controversies, pornography, support of pro-choice activism, support of violence or sexual content in entertainment, and support of LGBT activism, including same-sex partner employee benefits. These organizations include: 7-Eleven, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Airlines, American Girl, Blockbuster Video, Burger King, Calvin Klein, Carl's Jr., Clorox, Comcast, Crest, Ford, Hallmark Cards, Kmart, Kraft Foods, S. C. Johnson & Son, Movie Gallery, Microsoft, MTV, Mary Kay, NutriSystem, Old Navy, IKEA, Sears, Pampers, Procter & Gamble, Target, Tide, Walt Disney Company, and PepsiCo.

...

In 2005 the AFA boycotted the company American Girl, seller of dolls and accessories, because the company supported the charity Girls, Inc., which the AFA called "a pro-abortion, pro-lesbian advocacy group".

In Spring 2005 the AFA launched a boycott of Ford for advertising in gay magazines, donating to gay rights organizations, and sponsoring gay pride celebrations.After meeting with representatives of the group, Ford announced it was curtailing ads in a number of major gay-themed publications, due not by cultural but by "cost-cutting" factors. That statement was contradicted by the AFA, which claimed it had a "good faith agreement" that Ford would cease such ads. Soon afterwards, as a result of a strong outcry from the gay community, Ford backtracked and announced it would continue ads in gay publications, in response to which the AFA denounced Ford for "violating" the agreement, and renewed threats of a boycott.The boycott ended in March 2008.

On Independence Day 2008, the AFA announced a boycott of McDonald's, which had a director on the board of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. In October 2008, AFA announced the end of its boycott following the declaration to be "neutral on same-sex marriage or any 'homosexual agenda' as defined by the American Family Association" by McDonald's in a memo to franchisees.

On August 25, 2008, the AFA announced their boycott of Hallmark Cards for their decision to start selling same-sex wedding cards.

In December 2008, the AFA issued an "Action Alert" which called for members to protest about the Campbell Soup Company, which had purchased two two-page advertisements in the December 2008 and January 2009 issues of LGBT magazine The Advocate. The Action Alert said that Campbell's "sent a message that homosexual parents constitute a family and are worthy of support". The advertisements showed a married lesbian couple with their son. AFA spokesman Randy Sharp said "the Campbell Soup Company is saying 'we approve of homosexual marriage.'"

...

In 2012 they led a failed boycott against Archie Comics when they published a comic book featuring a same-sex marriage.

In July 2012, they considered boycotting Google due to Google's "Legalize Love" campaign which supports LGBT rights.

I've seen a few recommendations for Zaxby's and since they just opened one on my way home from work, I'll have to check them out. I'll admit that I do love the taste of the Jesus Chicken, but I haven't been able to force myself to go there since all this came out a while back.

Crotchrocket Slim: ManRay: Thank CF-A. Since you brought it up, now I am going to need a stance on gay marriage from every fast food chicken joint before I can eat again.

Personally I don't look into this sort of thing unless the restaurant in question is stupid enough to make a stink about whatever political "values" it wants to foist upon the rest of society.

Frankly half the reason I would not go to Chick-Fil-A even if they had locations near me is they were stupid enough to think people go there to be entrenched in some sort of culture etc.; how can anyone think mixing preaching in with selling cheap chicken is a good thing? Aren't they simply in the fast food business? Why would anyone care what the people running Chick-Fil-A believe if Chick-Fil-A wasn't being a dick to those it "dislikes"? Why would they even get involved in this sort of thing? Dumb dumb dumb.


Why does any company give a dime to any cause? Because somewhere inside that corporation is a person with certain values and control of purse strings. Chik-Fil-A is privately held; the founder is simply spending his money to support his values.

I agree 100%. Barack Obama is on record stating the marriage should be between a man and a woman.


Link

"At a certain point, I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married," Mr. Obama said.
---
"I had hesitated on gay marriage in part because I thought that civil unions would be sufficient," Mr. Obama said. "I was sensitive to the fact that for a lot of people, the word marriage was something that invokes very powerful traditions and religious beliefs."

"The thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it's also the golden rule - you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated," he said. "And I think that's what we try to impart to our kids, and that's what motivates me as president."

I'm guessing that if Chick-Fil-A were overtly donating millions of dollars to prevent you from marrying the person you love you'd have a different attitude.

Smelly McUgly: A big and coordinated enough boycott would put the private business out of business or at the very least, force it to downsize to the point that they wouldn't be giving the personal fortune to idiotic political causes that they now are.

In theory, of course, because in practice I cannot imagine coordinating that many people across that many states for a long enough amount of time to get the boycott to affect the company.


Exactly. I'd estimate that 99% of Chick-Fil-A's customers either don't care one bit about their politics (even when informed)... or actually *agree* with their politics.

The whole gay rights universe is pretty small, in the end. (I'm a big supporter of all LGBT issues, personally. But I know- when you take all of Americans into account- I'm in a rather large minority.)

i guess. it's not like i'm going to a f*cking klan bake sale. if i spent $10 on a meal at chick-fil-a in 2009, literally one half of one penny would have ended up funding some terrible group. that sucks, but i've indirectly done worse for the world buy purchasing a smart phone. if i feel bad about that, i'll donate money to a group that fights against those travesties because it's more direct and much easier than figuring out which company donates to what cause.

i will admit though, that in cases like this where it's front page news already and top of mind, i'd probably consciously steer clear of the joint until i forget about it again. but this is coming from a guy whose only eaten at chick-fil-a once.

there's a difference between knowing what a company supports (CFA in this example) and researching what every company you patronize supports. If you continue to patronize CFA knowing about them you either agree with them or are indifferent. It is impossible to research what EVERY company supports but if you already do know and still go there or buy their products, you are at best indifferent to the causes they fund.

if you're going to limit this only to times where it is front-page news, then sure i'll avoid chick-fil-a until i forget about it again. but doesn't that just teach companies not to be so vocal with their donations? i assumed that if you are for a cause you would want to avoid all companies that worked against that cause.

I was just speaking to this situation on which you commented. I was just countering the notion that not eating at Chick-fil-a when it requires no effort at all would be "exhausting."

I agree with your other thing, which is why I don't do that. Luckily we live in a world where idiots like this CFA guy never turn down an opportunity to display their derp. Why "research" anything when most will just tell you without asking?
 
2012-07-24 03:25:32 PM  

downstairs: thomps: yeah i was assuming all profits going to donation to highlight the point. why abstain when you can pay to absolve? if you donate a dollar each time, it would do much more good than if you just had boycotted the restaurant. chick-fil-a isn't going to stop donating just because a minority of customers stop coming. they already forgo an entire day of profits each week to align their business with their beliefs, a little boycott isn't going to convince them.

Gotcha. Also, I agree... boycotts don't work. Its always a tiny minority that actually sticks to the boycott. (And to be perfectly honest, most people "boycotting" Chick-Fil-A probably never ate there anyway.)

I'm 100% against their anti-gay stance. But I can't really boycott them, seeing as I've never actually eaten there. Heck, I didn't even know what Chick-Fil-A was until they sponsored that stupid bowl game.


True dat. Can't hurt a company I would never patronize. I think it would be a great idea to make a donation to a LGTB group/charity in CFA's name.

If CFA's founder wasn't using his position as its CEO and founder to spread his laughable "values", I wouldn't care. Just because one owns a business does it make it not crass to use it to advance one's politics. If nothing else, in politicizing his business, he's cutting off potential business from people who would be opposed to his agenda, and this would not be an issue for him or the rest of CFA if he wasn't treating a money-making organization as a political one. That's my whole point.

Sleeping Monkey: EnviroDude: So much for respect of diversity.

Since when is hate called 'diversity'? That statement is almost too stupid for Fark. Almost.

Pretty classic, right there.

I keep seeing conservative commentary like "libtards talk about tolerance and are intolerant". Echoing that we have EnviroDude with this gem.

"If you respected diversity so much, you'd be ok with me espousing bigotry.. or do you want to shut down another viewpoint?!? HUHUh!?!?
"If you were so tolerant, you'd be tolerant of my intolerance because you respect diversity!"

Seriously? That's the best the right has? And by 'the right' I mean 'Fark Independents'.



Really, all you get is tolerance, that's it. Forget the the gay issue, the racial issue, etc.

You get tolerance, just as you get tolerance for your screwy left wing views. Frankly, I don't care who you are banging - man women beast, just no kids. I still think gay lifestyle is an abhorrent lifestyle but go ahead and do what you want, I'll give you tolerance and I won't do anything to deny you your right to do that.

Diversity, diversity doesn't make you stronger, that's just a nice little cliche for public service announcements. Diversity does give you a nice wide range of restaurants but that's about it. But you get tolerance so drive around waving the Mexican flag when you want or march down the street in a parade advocating what ever your "culture" is all about just don't do anything to impact my own rights and we are okay.

Yes the left preaches tolerance but what they really want is acceptance and if you don't accept then you are a hater, as if that means anything.

No one's asking you to "accept" anything. Asking you not to deny someone Constitutionally Protected Rights because of who they are is not tantamount to "acceptance." You are free to "accept" or not "accept" whoever you want for whatever reason you want. What you're not free to do is to curtail the rights of others because you don't "accept" them.

The problem is that they can't easily stop at this point.

If they quietly stop, the boycotters won't know that they've stopped funding anti-rights groups. So the boycott would continue.

If they say they've stopped, the right-wingers will brand them as traitors.

By stepping out front, their CEO has pretty clearly put them into one path, and I don't see how to get away from that path.

Buffalo77: Yes the left preaches tolerance but what they really want is acceptance and if you don't accept then you are a hater, as if that means anything.

No one's asking you to "accept" anything. Asking you not to deny someone Constitutionally Protected Rights because of who they are is not tantamount to "acceptance." You are free to "accept" or not "accept" whoever you want for whatever reason you want. What you're not free to do is to curtail the rights of others because you don't "accept" them.

I think the Dallas Cowboy Fan lifestyle is an abhorrent lifestyle. That said, I don't think it should be legal for Soldiers to quarter in their house without their consent.



Which is exactly the point I made. Let's look at what this guy said. No where did he say he was denying gay couples the right to marry. He said he believes in the traditional family unit (paraphrasing) so everyone makes their inference to fit their agenda by saying he is against gay marriage.

I am pro traditional family unit also but if you are gay and want to marry, so be it, I am not going to try and stop you. They are not mutually exclusive. I tolerate your lifestyle unless it restricts my rights.

I like brunette women, it doesn't mean I hate redheads or blondes. Also I am with you on that Dallas cowboy lifestyle.

Obama coming out for gay marriage is one of the biggest political smokescreens ever, and people like you eat it up with a spoon. He is telling you what you want to hear, without lifting a finger to get it accomplished. Is same-sex marriage a "right" or isn't it? Why allow the states to vote on something that should be an unalienable right, like Obama claims? So believers in traditional marriage are automatically bigots?
Obama ran for gay marriage when he was running for state senator in Illinois, then changed to broaden his base across the State when he ran for US Senate. We have zero clue how he really feels. Your quotes are used to fit your point of view.

Nice try though.

Serious question here, not a flame. What does "pro traditional family" mean, then? You're clearly straight... so you'd never marry someone of your own gender anyway. So your belief seems hollow.

It seems that if you're "pro traditional family" you need to be against gay marriage.

If you want to have that opinion and say live and let live, that's fine and I prefer that attitude to putting money to stopping gays from marrying, but I'd like to know the specific reason you don't like it. Being anti-gay is inconsistent with both the natural explanation (the false premise that all complex animals are heterosexual) and the Biblical explanation (the quotes that condemn gay relationships but ignoring all the other condemnations in the same books that are given a pass, including the definitions of marriage used).

Then why not be honest and say "it's gross," or "I think it's gross?" Instead of applying a universal moral judgement on it, describe it in the context of your personal tastes.

However, the mayor of Boston has said that he will do his best to keep Chick-fil-A from opening in the city. The mayor of a free society has NO say in what business operates anywhere. Period. It's up for the people to decide through supply and demand.

And this all highlights another issue: our government should not be able to be bought. The problem isn't companies giving money to politicians, it's the fact that such laws pressed by companies can be pushed on everyone else because our government allows it.

I believe it is how you live your own life. Marry a woman you love, have kids because you want them and believe it is a blessing. Raise those kids to have moral values and respect other people's views and opinions. Respect and take care of your in-laws and parents, work hard, don't screw around on your wife or beat your kids. There are others.

One of the things I believe that has lead to this whole issue is the term "marriage". I think all unions between people who love each other should be civil unions (man woman, woman woman, man man ) for the purposes of legal proceedings and civil issues. Then if you want to get "married" in a church that is holy matrimony and is between the couple and the church and god or flying spaghetti monster if that is the deity in that church.

Many people view marriage as holy matrimony and this is where the problem arise.

Yes, there is a problem when people see marriage as something so personally sacred it has to be applied using the same religious definitions to everyone in the country. There's also a problem when peopl hold that position with no understanding of scripture and history, and don't realize that the current concept of marriage is different from what it was decades, centuries, and millennia ago. Things change, and the idea that marriage is an equal partnership with the considered consent of one man and one woman of any race or nationality is pretty farking radical compared three generations ago.

Biblically, the Bible has a lot of unsavory shiat about marriage.

Naturally, the animal kingdom has a ton of bisexual and homosexual behavior.

If you want to have that opinion and say live and let live, that's fine and I prefer that attitude to putting money to stopping gays from marrying, but I'd like to know the specific reason you don't like it.

Well here you go William, all opinion is subjective and all opinion will be disagreed with by many people. You know, some of you opinions are insulting to me. Get over it, you don't have a right to not be insulted or have your feeling hurt. Why is it abhorrent to me is because I would not practice it and can not imagine wanting to but you go ahead an do what you want, it doesn't impact me. Put your dick in a vise and crank the handle down, that's an abhorrent thing to do but go ahead and do it if you want.

Until they don't serve a gay person, they are only voicing their opinion. And those that disagree with it are trying to force them to change it. So much for respect of diversity.


So a gay person should respect somebody who believes that they should be treated like a second class citizen? And not that, one who donate considerable amounts to anti-gay groups to ensure that they continue to be treated like second class citizens?

I've no conflicts over the times I've eaten there. Both cases involved a bunch of "free sandwich" and "free waffle fries" promo coupons that were being given out for blood donations... which might only have taken a dollar that Chick-Fil-A could have spent bashing gays, but that's still a dollar out of their pockets.

Buffalo77: I am not sure what your religious background is (I am not a religious man) but you realize that religion is not derived literally from the bible. Catholics do not take a literal interpretation of the bible.

Things change over time, yes that is true. Interpretations of scripture may change. Anglicans allow gays to be priests now.

You should not look to the bible as the definitive answer unless you are an evangelical baptist, then god help you.

That means it's just a bunch of shiat that men made up, and we can advance our society and increase our quality of life without any regard for those guys.


Didn't you have that same sentiment before I wrote that? Just be tolerant of those who do not have your belief or god will strike you down.

freetomato: In the late 90s, I used to work in marketing for Naturally Fresh (the salad dressing in a mason jar that is sold in the vegetable aisle). Chic Fil A corporate HQ is across the street from there. Truett Cathy came over one day to speak to us, and gave us all autographed copies of his book, as well as copies of the first "Dwarf House" menus from back in the day. Sweet old man. Naturally Fresh was trying to woo Chic Fil A into carrying their sauces and dressings. It was on track to happen until Mr. Cathy found out that Naturally Fresh was owned by the same guys that owned Hooter's. The deal came to a screeching halt.

I don't eat fast food often enough for this to affect me, but if I want a chicken sandwich I'd hit a Zaxby's first. They taste better and while I respect Chic Fil A's right to their beliefs I don't agree with them so I'll spend my dollars elsewhere.


Well, my work here is done.
 
2012-07-24 06:18:58 PM  
I look at it this way, I believe the Mormon church has a right to their beliefs but they over step that right by funding work to place gays as second class citizens, same for Mr. Cathy.

If the richest people in the world spent zillions to influence laws against the civil rights of a minority then our Democracy is lost. Right now I see it hanging in the balance.

Raising Cane's? Most overpriced terrible chicken fingers ever. The fingers are passable at best, and only if you dip it in their sauce, which they never give enough of and charge extra for. I occasionally can partake of a catered Cane's lunch, and once the sauce is gone the fingers go untouched because they taste like nothing without it.

Give me Chick Fil anti-gAy any day.

I don't think anyone presents their opinion as fact on either side - left or right.

I know Christians who believe anyone that doesn't believe that JC is their savior is doomed to hell. My opinion is that your ultimate destination is revealed to you in different ways - be you christian, muslim, buddhist, Jedi or whatever. Rarely are facts ever presented in Fark, its all opinion or interpretation.

With regards to others, you may believe you have to convert people to their way. OK, but if I tell you to STFU and get out of my face, then you should or we have a problem.

I believe it is. But I'd shoot for a mom and pop diner, where the locals eat. You're guaranteed a good chicken dinner at most of those places.

Shirley's Country Kitchen in Newnan GA, for instance. I've submitted her place to Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Her fried chicken is heavenly and her banana pudding is sublime. All the veggies are out of her garden, and her kids work the line.

You? Think?

Good one.

Menino is well aware that Chick Fil-A is a political football in Boston despite the fact that there are two franchises out in the burbs already. Earlier Chick Fil-A's plans to open a franchise in Boston's Northeastern University were ground to a halt when student protests convinced school administrators to nix the plans. Menino has already successfully kept a Wal Mart out of his turf by making necessary licenses next to impossible for them to get and his constituents seem to like him for it. I imagine he will employ similar tactics here.

Dick move, you say?

Cathy has donated at least 5 million to date to anti-gay crusades and has now come out on the record as saying he thinks gay marriage will lead to God's Wrath being visited upon the USA.

I'd say that was the bigger dick move myself.

Not being tolerant of bigotry is not a form of bigotry itself.

He doesn't. The OT law (to the Jews) to not eat shellfish was part of the "Law" that God gave the Jews to live by, which, of course, they couldn't, because it was too hard. Thus they were always offering sacrifices and stuff to make up for it. So God sent Jesus, His own Son, to be a sacrifice for us all, because in Him, the Law is fulfilled. Thus, we are not bound by the "don't eat this" "don't wear that" instructions (which were set up by God to prove to us that we couldn't live a perfect life and that we needed a Savior who would do that for us). Of course, the OT is much more than just Jewish Law, it's stories, history, psalms and, of course, instruction. Homosexuality was condemned in the OT, and it was also condemned in the NT, therefore it's not something God wants us to do, ever. God doesn't change. His ways are forever.

Here is an instance where the Bible does says God "changed His mind," but in reading the commentary, you find out that He really doesn't. He knew what He was going to do all along.
Link

But I was correct in saying that God doesn't change his mind in relation to people wanting to do things that He's commanded us not to do. God doesn't bow to peer pressure (He has no peers!). Look at what happened at the flood: all the world was engaging in evil continually. Did God say, Wow, Everybody's doing this, maybe I'll just go with the flow? No. He brought the flood and judged them. God don't take sin lightly.

The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is a sin: Genesis 19:4-7; Leviticus 18:22-28; Judges 19:22; 1Corinthians 6:9; 1Timothy 1:10; Romans 1:26, 27 and Jude 1:7, 10. In both books. In lots of places. It's a recurring theme. If it's condemned in the OT and upheld as condemned in the NT, then it's something God has condemned. Period. There is no place in the Bible where homosexuality is looked at favorably. So it's a sin. Should sin be condoned? Should it be celebrated? Should it be forced upon the public by law? What about adulterers? Shouldn't they have rights, too? A right to cheat on their life partner without any consequence? And pedophiles? Don't they have rights? Where does it stop? Sin begets sin. Bad behavior begets bad behavior. There is a certain way God wants us to live. It's not bigotry. It's called righteousness. And you can't get into Heaven without it. So if you want your "heaven" here on earth, by golly, that's all you're going to get, because there's a pretty good chance you won't be getting any in the hereafter.

Heh, I found this in the Bible:

Genesis 19:6-8 (Lot is very nice to offer a bunch of virgin girls to these rapists)

6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof."


BTW, this sounds more like rape than gay sex:

9 "Get out of our way," they replied. "This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We'll treat you worse than them." They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

Romans 1: 21-25

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.


Looking at you Prosperity Gospel heretics.

Myria: The next time I eat at Chik-Fil-A will be on a Sunday.


But you'd have to buy it on a Saturday, and eat it the next day. It doesn't re-heat well. I've tried. The crust on the chicken gets all soggy, and the waffle fries need to be re-fried. Just go to Zaxby's, and act as gay as possible (wave flags, wiggle-hip-dance in short shorts in the lobby) and nobody will care. Or make your own!

I think if you break into a CfA on a Sunday and make the food yourself, I'm pretty sure they have to burn the entire building down and salt the earth. It's in the employee's manual.

Sorry I'm so late to the party. I wanted to make this picture last night but did not get around to it until just now

Good job. Is that a font or did you draw that?


Thanks. I just shooped the letters from their ad

I assume Chik-Fil-A is the official fast food chain of the Boy Scouts of America.

Actually Im surprised none of the franchise owners have talked about suing over damage to the franchise. Personally I think this sort of thing has no place in business.

(Although keep an eye on the jews, those folks know how to make a penny)

Jim_Callahan: I find it really hard to respect anyone involved in this stupid nontroversy, either the owner of the chain for stupidly mixing religion with business or the idiot protesters that actually think this is worth an organized boycott.

Do we as a country seriously not have anything better to do than worry over whether our fast food has non-food-related political associations? Pick your battles, man.

//Unless Chick Fil-a has crossed a line into something actually illegal, in which case obviously feel free to exact the appropriate penalty.


Dude, it's not that big of a deal. I'm not eating there. I'm not losing sleep over it...

tony41454: The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is a sin: Genesis 19:4-7; Leviticus 18:22-28; Judges 19:22; 1Corinthians 6:9; 1Timothy 1:10; Romans 1:26, 27 and Jude 1:7, 10. In both books. In lots of places. It's a recurring theme. If it's condemned in the OT and upheld as condemned in the NT, then it's something God has condemned. Period. There is no place in the Bible where homosexuality is looked at favorably. So it's a sin. Should sin be condoned? Should it be celebrated? Should it be forced upon the public by law? What about adulterers? Shouldn't they have rights, too? A right to cheat on their life partner without any consequence? And pedophiles? Don't they have rights? Where does it stop? Sin begets sin. Bad behavior begets bad behavior. There is a certain way God wants us to live. It's not bigotry. It's called righteousness. And you can't get into Heaven without it. So if you want your "heaven" here on earth, by golly, that's all you're going to get, because there's a pretty good chance you won't be getting any in the hereafter.


I don't give a damn about what the bible says, because the bible is not in the Constitution.

Here's the thing.

To people who aren't in your version of Christianity the only sin here the sin of bigotry and you are the one guilty of it.

You are a bad person and you should feel bad but your morals are too unevolved for you to even process this simple truth.

Nope. It is impossible for a society that didn't think of human sexuality in the way we do today to comment on it.

Sodom is a story about inhospitality to strangers, not homosexuality. See Ezekiel 16.

Leviticus talks about a specific act. Homosexuality is not defined by a specific act that is practiced by less than half of all modern homosexuals. Indeed, many straight people participated in the act as well (rape, fertility rituals). In addition, Leviticus contains a lot of banning of everyday behaviour, and picking and choosing here makes you quite the hypocrite. And we know what Jesus thought of the hypocrites.

Judges is simply a repeat of Sodom. Raping a stranger in order to humiliate and show them that they are not welcome, a common practice in those times.

Corinthians and Timothy are bad translations of a word Paul coined, "arsenokoitai". It didn't exist before Paul used it, and he provides no context (the words appear in lists). However a later use of the word in a text provides some context. If we take the word to mean homosexuality in this text, the sentence would be translated as "And the Men performed homosexuality with their wives". So it's unlikely that this word means homosexuality.

Romans might be one of your best bets for an argument against homosexuality in the Bible, but unfortunately, Paul clearly ties it to pagan rituals. These kinds of rituals were quite common. We all know about the infamous Roman orgies. However, the participants in these fertility rituals and orgies were not necessarily homosexuals. In fact, they were attended by lots of people who would go home at the end of the day to their heterosexual spouse and families.

Jude is a terrible example. The original Greek for "strange flesh" in the KJV is hetero sarkas. You know, the same word we get heterosexual from. I know why this is and what it means. Do you? Or are you just one of those people that takes the Bible at face value and sees what you want to see in it?

You clearly need a good Bible scholar to talk to. That or the Holy Spirit. Sheesh!

So... you've got nothin'. Got to love the people that are completely ignorant of their own religion.

/P.S. My information comes from reading books by scholars - in religion, history and language.

There's your problem, right there. Biblical truth comes from the pulpit and the interpretations of the clergy, not from scholars.

I just want to thank all of you desperate straight people for telling us poor gay and bisexual people what we should be offended by.

I am going to continue going to Chick-Fil-A despite the 300 comments above that I didn't read. Go find something else to rage about, because this smells like "pathetic pseudo-outrage" to me.

Mugato:
So which is it, is he an empty suit that can't stand up to Congress and can't get anything done or is he Emperor Palatine?

Its actually a little bit of both. His ego could apply for statehood, but when he is pushed to the wall, he folds like a tent. This is what happens when you are hopelessly unprepared to be President and sail into office simply because your predecessor was so terrible.

Bush sucked, but I refuse to believe Romney will be anything but a moderate. And dont give me the "same economic team" as Bush- Obama rehired ALL of the same people from the Bush era bailout.
