There's a CFA down the street from my office and I keep meaning to see if there's any sort of picketing going on out front. Is this going on anywhere?

And having never eaten at a Chick-fil-A, I'm sure my impending boycott will devastate them.

Pocket Ninja: I do like Chik fil A sandwiches, but those motherless whoremongerers always ignore me and put a goddamn pickle on the sandwich. I say, very clearly, "I do not want a pickle." And then they hand me the little insulated bag with the sandwich inside it and I go to sit down and pull apart the bread and THERE'S A FARKING PICKLE. JESUS CHRIST. And don't give me any bullcrap about "just take the pickle off." Once pickle juice taints something you can never get it out, never. It's always going to taste like farking pickle. So I'm sort of glad that I found out they're a hate group, actually, because now I get to feel good about not subjecting myself to that sort of aggravation anymore.


THAT'S THE SURPRISE!!!

sure haven't: /why do people give a shiat about what moral causes they support?


Because the causes they support are working to deny me rights. If there was a group dedicated to preventing you from doing something, would you support them financially?

Just today I saw one of our open & proud gay dudes here at work carrying around a bag of Chick-fil-a.

I was like "Hey, what are you doing with that?" and he thought I was teasing him for eating greasy fast food.
He has nooooooo idea about any of this. Weird.

why are we still linking to Gizmodo? Plus on Reddit they already went over this and no one could prove if this was a real employee it was just someone using stock photos which don't prove jack.

Also in the end it was just a coincidence they recalled the Jim Hensen toys at the same exact time Hensen's crew said they were pulling away from Chick Fil A due to their corproate douchbaggery.


/makes a good sandwich
//still wont eat there because of the Christian zealots

If they are conveniently located and have pretty decent waffle fries, yes.

Noctusxx: What is so special about these sandwiches? I live in the Pac NW and have never even heard of this place till all this silliness.


Maybe Chik-fil-A's aren't the Pac NW: but go to places like Texas or Georgia and they are friggin everywhere. Like almost as bad a Waffle House.

We just got the free-standing stores two or three years ago around here and people acted like they were the second coming of Christ.

James!: Isn't lying worse than gay marriage? I mean God thought it was important enough to come down himself and tell us that one.

//as far as the story goes.


Yeah, bearing false witness actually made it to the Top Ten, whereas gay marriage didn't even warrant an actual commandment.

Besides, if you're looking to make a Chick-Fil-A sandwich at home, it's pretty easy to do.

God wants you to have the pickle. Chick fil A knows what you want more than you do.

That is not a euphemism.

FormlessOne: First, if you're trying to stem the PR nightmare caused by your homophobia, using a fraudulent Facebook account and lying on it won't help, especially if you're caught at it on your (apparent) first attempt.

Second, if you think using a fraudulent Facebook account and lying on it is a valid PR strategy in any situation, well, you're an idiot - which, of course, probably explains the homophobia in the first place.


Think about it. Somewhere, in a conference room at CFA headquarters, a group of stuffed shirts sat around and discussed their options for improving their PR.

This is what they came up with.

Again.. this is another case of

A) Successful white christian business people trying to play the oppressed minority.
B) A situation that could have been avoided if your marketing department had at least one farker in the 20-30 demographic.

czetie: James!: Yeah, it's a chicken sandwich whose powers of attraction cause you to fund causes opposed to your beliefs. Don't worry about what happens with that money, you were hungry.

This is the key part. It's not about whether you agree with the politics, ethics, religion, or after-hours hobbies of the CEO of a company. There's probably something you disagree with about the owner or CEO of every company in the USA. That way madness lies.

But the owner of Chick-Fil-A doesn't merely oppose gay equality -- he's entitled to his opinion, however bigoted and atavistic it might be. He directly takes the money you choose to give him and uses it to lobby against gay rights and oppose equality under the law for gays. THAT is a good reason not to give him your money.


Chick Fil A are all franchises. So outside of money made selling frozen fries and chicken breasts to the restaurants, I don't think much of your money makes it out of the actual restaurant. But if you decide to spend your money elsewhere, is there any restaurants that employee 100% of people who don't give money to catholic churches or other religious organizations that don't believe homosexuals should get married?

As if a fight over gay rights between Muppets and a fast food place wasn't ridiculous enough, we've added fake facebook accounts, poor PR and ex-Presidential candidates into the mix.

You do realize they give real money to real organizations that deny many of us in the LGBTQ community our rights, don't you? Every time you buy one of their products you are literally funding hate groups. Not even using hyperbole here. I am gay and currently denied some 1100 civil rights and liberties guaranteed under the Constitution due to bigoted policies and politics. Please don't support organizations that keep me a second class citizen.
 
2012-07-25 04:15:16 PM
Reason I don't give the chicken people my money. #1 they can't spell. Look at their signs & advertising. #2 They support child abuse

I buy a sammich, money goes to Exodus International, Exodus tries to "cure" a gay kid by shock therapy, or any number of harmful gay away tactics as described by those who have made it out alive. Some don't.

No thanks. I don't want your child abuse sammich.

They can be anti-gay. They can be xtians. Whatever. If the money starts going from my pocket directly to hate groups that inflict physical & emotional pain on people, children mostly....um, yeah, keep your stupid sammich.

I wouldn't get a sammich from a place who donates directly to the KKK.

I wouldn't get a sammich from a place that donates directly to Westboro.

Would you?

Is she white though? Her skin complexion is just-tanned-enough and her facial features are just-vaguely-ethnic such that you have to wonder "what is she?".

I find those one-size-fits-all stock photos hilarious.

simple easy solution.

Don't be Gay.

after the 1 year waiting period of being straight we will probably even let you vote. You'll be 1st class.

It'll be fun to watch their profits go up as Real America supports them in their undying quest of Jesus and mediocre sandwiches.

And besides, laziness trumps principle, for pete's sake there's a Chick-Fil-A on the WAY to work for a lot of people.

Here here. The only place I've ever seen one in Portland is at the Lloyd Center mall and that's because I worked at the Portland State Office Building for several years so we'd often go to the food court there. Otherwise, I have never seen another one in PDX metro area. Granted, I don't get over to the eastside that much so maybe they are popular over there?
