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

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.

"What harm would it do, if a man told a good strong lie for the sake of the good and for the Christian church ... a lie out of necessity, a useful lie, a helpful lie, such lies would not be against God, he would accept them." ~Martin Luther.

It's OK to lie if you're really religious. You see, to the fundamentalists and the religious extremists, the rules really only apply to other people. It's just fine for them to lie, cheat, steal, snort crank off the glans of a lubed up rent-boy, etc. It's just not OK for anyone else to do so.

Chick-fil-A and the rest of the religious whackos are much more prone to act like Martin Luther than to act like Jesus.

You do realize the sandwich is symbolic of the holy trinity right? The bread, chicken, and pickle equal the father, son, and holy ghost. You are never actually pouring sauces on the sandwich, you're baptizing them. Would you expect a preacher to separate the holy trinity? No, so you shouldn't expect your Chick-fil-A to do the same.

I'd be really careful about self-righteous moral consumerism. That's a very deep rabbit hole.

No no no, the pickle is a metaphor for a penis. Pocket Ninja is saying he's not gay so why do they keep trying to shove their gay agenda (the penis pickle, in this analogy) down his throat, even though he always says, "No penis please." Then they wrap themselves in religious dogma (the insulated bag) and try to trick him into gobbling down some penis(pickle). When he complains about constantly having to avoid slurping down some pickle/penis, they respond by saying "Just take it off." implying they mean the pickle-penis, but really they mean his pants.

Here's the thing, you see. It's not JUST that they give all of this money to hate groups who actively work to deny American citizens equal rights, it's just that they're so PROUD of it. They brag about it. They make a big deal out of it. They let it be known. And I, as a supporter of equality, will choose to get my friggin chicken sandwiches elsewhere because to me, it's not worth it.

It's not just that they've taken a position against gay-marriage, it's the fact that they're actively funding hate groups in the process. I'm sure there are many CEOs who's personal views I don't agree with, but when they're using that company to fund hate groups (instead of just leaving it as an opinion), then they've crossed the line.

If I knew that even a cent of what I spent there went to something that I am opposed to, then I would be ashamed of myself. Especially when it's something as unnecessary as some mediocre chicken.

I don't drink Coors products because of their donations to the Heritage Foundation (also because it's terrible).

I'll have an occasional 6-piece McNuggets from McD's when I'm waiting in the airport or whatever. Its good enough. But I can't understand the "love" for anything fast food.

*Popeyes blend of spices is noticeably different than any other chicken I've had, and *is* spicy. Every other fast food chicken, the "spice" mix is usually salt and maybe a tiny bit of other stuff. Still, can't understand someone being obsessed with Popeyes.

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.

downstairs: Something I'm curious about as well. Are they any different than any other fast food chicken (besides Popeyes*)?


The chicken itself is definitely better in apparent quality (texture, appearance, etc) than that formed, molded muck you get in the batter shell at McDonald's, but every time I ever tried their chicken I felt like I'd just shoved a whole salt lick in my mouth.

I don't care for their food much at all. If I'm going to eat artery-clogging, evil-causing chicken, I'll stick with KFC. It's cruel, but delicious.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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 don't think the call is to give up fast food, just that one restaurant. I doubt their profits will go up (or down) very much because of this. Most people don't care. Not just about this, they don't care about much of anything.

As an example: A few years ago, an airline kicked a man off of an airplane for being muslim. That man was a secret service agent, trusted to carry a gun around the president. It was an outrage. Does anyone remember which airline it was?

Just in case anyone was misinformed: The reason the Mormons start these businesses is to raise money for their church and programs. It's not that the CEO of C-F-A at some point decided that some portion of corporate profits would go to funding XYZ groups, the entire premise of starting the business was to send some portion of money to these groups.

These groups are mainly focused on helping the Mormons themselves. Not only is the money earmarked for programs you might not agree with before the business starts, but the programs you might actually support are "Mormon Only" meaning that the intent of these programs (such as food pantries) is to help members of the church and are not generally open to the community.

Maybe I should give up the chicken sandwich because CFA is doing it wrong, in that
they are not taking an interest on a personal level with those that do not have the same beliefs as they do.

I missed the part of the Bible that told us how the kingdom of God is glorified by
legislating morality. My question to CFA, and other Christians and Christian based groups)
what does this accomplish? Will making it illegal for gays to marry show them how
God loves them? Does being associated with a "hate group" further the kingdom?

What do I think the church (and these christian based groups) do to reverse the damage
that's been done to the religion?
1. stop being a goob. really. Make an effort to get to know your neighbors that
do not have the same beliefs and/or values as you. You'll find out that you both
have more in common than either of you realize.
2. Stop with those big churches and "building campaigns". There are hungry women, children,
and widows in your community. Remember, care for the widows and orphans. Not build
sprawling chruch campuses and ever larger buildings.
3. Remember, every person you meet does not have to go away "saved". would be nice, but
it's not going to happen. Were you "saved" the first time someone told you? Your job is not "saving" people. It's showing love and compassion
of our Lord. If the opportunity arises, and it will if you are being genuine, you'll have
plenty of time to share. Remember, less is more sometimes.

In other words, victrin, I believe you should have the same rights and opportunity as I.
Legislating morality fails on all levels. It fails the religion and belief system that
initiated the legislation, and it fails you because of your limited civil rights with
the government telling you who you can and cannot marry.

We've got a lot of fast food around here, including at least two chicken chains (KFC and Popeye's), and I don't hear anyone going nuts about any of it. I have to assume there's a dearth of good places to eat down there.

So, here is my idea. Instead of just boycotting CFA, seek them out when on road trips and you need a bathroom break. Then leave without buying anything.

I know it isn't much, but if they are going to fund hate groups, I'm going to use their water and paper towels for free. Now if I can just get a few thousand more people to do this, it will slowly eat into their profit margins, which is really the biggest concern of the business I'm sure.

PoochUMD:
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?


You've never looked into getting one of their franchises. They are cheap to get ($5,000) but there's so many people trying to get one that the odds you get it are way low. Along the lines of 75 new licenses per year out of over 10,000 applications. And with that comes strict stipulations. Such as the corporation chooses where it goes. If it's not where you want to be then too bad. You can't be trying to do anything else besides run the restaurant. You can't have more than one and try to incorporate them.

Plus 15% of gross sales AND 50% of the profits go back to the corporation. So yeah, half of all cleared profit goes back on top of the food costs. This is unlike other franchises where only a small amount goes back to cover mainly corporate advertising. Their franchise rules are the worst out there.

FWIW-I'm a pro-gay marriage liberal episcopalian, so I'm sure Stuart Cathey thinks I'm going to suffer eternal torment, too.

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.

So what other businesses are you boycotting because you just realized they have taken a position that conflicts with your morals? Or should I ask, which businesses aren't you boycotting? I don't have chick-fil-a in my town so it has never really come up, I try to avoid wal-mart but that isn't always possible.


It's not possible to avoid Walmart? Why? Do they hunt you down and corner you, forcibly take your money, and then give you some cheap Chinese-made crap? Of course you can avoid them. You *choose* not to. Just man up and be honest about it. You're not an evil person for it or anything. But it is kind of jerky to make excuses instead of be honest.

As for who's boycotting who and why, this came up several times in the earlier CFA thread, and I'm still not sure if the people saying it are bullshiatting, making excuses, or honestly don't get it. Look, here's how it works: No sane person sits down and researches the habits of every damn company out there they might do business with. That way lies madness. But what conscientious people do do is pay attention to the news. If they hear that some company is doing something they might *personally* object to, they may make a mental note of it, which might affect their consumer behaviour later on. This is a personal choice, though: If you don't care about what someone else cares about, that's your choice, as a consumer free to make their own decisions. People boycotting CFA may or may not hope the company founders for it (which is very unlikely, I think), but at least don't want to feel like they're personally contributing to things they object to. That's their personal choice, no one else's, and it's part of how our modern consumer culture works. Companies want to contribute to politics, organisations, or causes, fine; consumers can choose whether or not to contribute to businesses based on that. I happen to think it's a very good system. But it's not about trying to figure out what every damn company is doing with their money. It's just about paying attention and being aware what a given company may be doing if you happen to hear something about it, that's all. I would have thought this obvious, but it's apparently not.

James!: same with In and Out.

I know the family that owns In-N-Out is religious but do they actively support intolerance like Chik-Fil-A?


Yeah, that's how I think about it, too. There are all kinds of businesses around that like to project their Christian values, and that's fine. There's a very wide variety of what are considered 'Christian' values, and I find many of them commendable. What someone's faith or values or political views are doesn't concern me very much when I'm decided where to spend my money, and I don't ask. It only concerns me if it comes to like that they're actively working against *my* values. I don't care what the Christian donut shop down the street does with their money, and I won't ask, either. But if I walked in and saw NOM materials or the like, you bet I'd walk out and not come back.

Chicken Filet is to fast food chicken sandwiches what 5 Guys or In-n-Out is to fast food burgers. They taste a bit better and have developed a name for producing fresh, quality chicken that really isn't. I've eaten at one and found it to be unremarkable. Not in the Anna Nicole's anus unremarkable, but unremarkable in the way that I can't believe people would brush off their own beliefs to continue eating them.

And I support traditional grammar. I can not in good conscience spell their name in that farked up way anymore.

Sylvia_Bandersnatch: 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.

It's a fast-food chain specialising in chicken. Apparently with crack in it. I don't get it, either. We've got a lot of fast food around here, including at least two chicken chains (KFC and Popeye's), and I don't hear anyone going nuts about any of it. I have to assume there's a dearth of good places to eat down there.

my_cats_breath_smells_like_cat_food: So, here is my idea. Instead of just boycotting CFA, seek them out when on road trips and you need a bathroom break. Then leave without buying anything.

I know it isn't much, but if they are going to fund hate groups, I'm going to use their water and paper towels for free. Now if I can just get a few thousand more people to do this, it will slowly eat into their profit margins, which is really the biggest concern of the business I'm sure.

/I know it is pennies, but I gotta poop somewhere, so why not stink up a CFA for freedom


Are you insane? Long road trips require road trip rules. This means eating only food from truck stops/gas stations. About 3 gas station burritos will leave something more effective than "it isn't much".

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.


You'd think these pickle pushers would be a little more tolerant of gays, seeing as their entire business is based on encouraging cock gobbling.
 
2012-07-25 06:16:09 PM

PoochUMD: 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?


Chick-fil-a takes 15% of gross sales & 50% of net profit per month, plus various other fees and charges, including rental on the premises and equipment according to this FDD disclosure. (Aside: Instead of guessing, you could have looked this up yourself in under two minutes. What is it about the Internet that the easier it becomes to look stuff up, the less inclined people are to do so?).

As for the rest: There's two big differences. One, an employee is not the owner. The employee is going to make a living somewhere, and what they do with their salary is very different with what the owner of the business does with the profits. As I said in the part of my post that you cut, that way madness lies.

And second, there is a huge gulf between being opposed to gay marriage and the degree of active campaigning, funding, lobbying and -- worse -- demonization of gays that the owner of Chick-fil-A pursues.

Yes, difference of degree does matter.

sisterinarms: 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.


Is this that group of asshats who parents pay to have their own kids abducted in the middle of the night and carted off to a (often outside the US) paramilitary camp to have the gayness cured? I had thought C-F-A annoying in financially lobbying for anti-gay legislation. If this is who I think it is, then that's over a hole new line.

Also, a quick search didn't turn up anything close to a comprehensive list of the groups C-F-A money does go to. Anyone have a citation?

We have no shortage of other chicken places here - KFC, Popeye's, Church's, and even Go Chicken Go! (exclamation mark not mine). C-F-A breading is lighter, not as greasy, and the meat quality seems higher (than KFC and Church's at least..). For me, though, it's also about the Chic-Fil-A sauce - like honey mustard, with something extra to it. At least Popeye's has a new Mardi Gras sauce, which I think is a step up, anyways.

I'll just have to comfort the loss of C-F-A with a trip to Stroud's or RC's (some of the best pan fried chicken ever).

This is all perfectly fine - but I don't have any obligation to spend my money there, and won't. I can do that for any reason I wish, or for no reason, and don't feel obligated to answer to anyone about it. Does anybody really have a problem with that, or think it's any of their business?

HeartBurnKid: roncofooddehydrator: sisterinarms: 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?

So you ask every business person who you do business with where they spend your money to make sure it conforms with your views? You also choose not to buy any product which was made overseas without first confirming that their working conditions are to your satisfaction?

I'm betting he doesn't. I don't either. But if their CEO went on the news and said how proud they are to support Westboro's traditional family values, you bet your ass I'd stop eating there.

Ignorant is one thing. Willfully ignorant is another.


Exactly, this, and correct.

If I find out that a business supports, espouses, or gives money to causes that I abhor has practices and policies I dislike, I will stop doing business with them, it's that simple. No one business has a monopoly on anything that I need, especially someplace like a chicken store.

I don't shop at WalMart
I don't eat at Chik-fil-A
I don't buy from Amazon
I don't use E-Bay
I will never purchase an Apple product

and so on.

If I don't know the policies, especially if the company owner has not gone out of his/her way to be an asshat in public, then there's not much I can do unless and until I find out. The CEO, owner, company can be as big of a farkwad as they want to be, and I have the right to avoid their farkwadery.

I used to be a HUGE Amazon customer until I found out that they treat their shipping/packing people like shiat. Actually, they aren't even their shipping/packing people, they hire an outsourcer. The people are paid minimum wage with no benefits and are herded (literally) around to fulfillment sites to pack and ship in bad and unsafe conditions. My hubby is a shipper and I don't want to support the outsourcing of that kind of job to horrible companies that treat their workers like shiat and I don't want to support the companies that use the outsourcers.

Ignorant is one thing. Willfully ignorant is another.


I think we're all fairly aware the manufacturing conditions overseas are not good. I think people are being willfully ignorant if they pretend that Nike, Reebok, Adidas, Old Navy, Gap, or any other manufacturer who bases their production in a third world country are ok to buy while Chick-Fil-A is not. The fact of the matter is that once you start looking at all these companies, if you're going to be up on a moral high horse boycotting them for whatever you are against, it becomes difficult to buy any good that you like. In my opinion, the world is not black and white and there is a balance to every decision. Does a company produce more good than bad?

Let's do some math here. Chick-Fil-A does $2.3 billion in sales each year. Say the Cathy's give $2 million per year to anti-gay groups (as they did in 09 and 10). That means that 0.009% of every sale ends up in the hands of an anti-gay group. They have also given $18 million to help fund foster homes and camps in 2010 alone and have given out $23 million in scholarships to employees over the past 35 years.

If the logic for the boycott is that you don't want to finance anti-gay groups, then by that same logic you also do not want to fund scholarships to Chick-Fil-A employees, you don't want to fund foster homes and camps, and you certainly don't want to fund anyone involved in the other 99.991% of their sales, which includes good people just earning a living.

You know what would make more sense than a boycott? Donating a dollar to a gay-rights group every time you ate at Chik-Fil-A. If the average sale is $10 (picking a round number), then that would equal 1,100 times what the Cathy's donate to anti-gay groups.

Refusing to buy Chick-Fil-A under the guise that "doing so supports bigotry and I don't support bigotry" means that a person should also refuse to own a computer because "doing so supports human rights violations in China and I don't support human rights violations in China".

People who are using this line of reasoning need to admit that they're jumping on this because it's easy to do and it makes them feel better. If the claim is a moral high ground, like so many have been doing, they're hypocrites (as evidenced by the fact they own electronics).

It's not just the CEO's personal opinion, he's made it the official policy of the company.

I used to be a HUGE Amazon customer until I found out that they treat their shipping/packing people like shiat. Actually, they aren't even their shipping/packing people, they hire an outsourcer. The people are paid minimum wage with no benefits and are herded (literally) around to fulfillment sites to pack and ship in bad and unsafe conditions. My hubby is a shipper and I don't want to support the outsourcing of that kind of job to horrible companies that treat their workers like shiat and I don't want to support the companies that use the outsourcers.

I was a warehouse wage slave

The difference is companies who abuse third-world workers are doing it because they want to provide cheaper prices, and while reprehensible, it is a necessary evil in this day and age.

Chick-Fil-A just hates gays because Jesus. Which would be fine if everyone believes in Jesus and thinks homosexuality is a sin and evil, but obviously many, many people don't.

Funny thing about that, is that if given a choice on whether to buy a Chinese-made piece of electronics from a slave factory, or buy one from a decent assembly plant where workers are treated well, those of us who stand against Chik-Fil-A would also choose to purchase from the latter factory. Sometimes the choice isn't ours to make.

And yes, electronics are a requirement for the vast majority of us. My job alone has be toting around two cell phones, a tablet, and my own private workstation back at the office.

So what should I do? Buy a chicken sandwich knowing full well that part of my money will go to the persecution and oppression of several very good friends? Is that your suggestion? Or is it your suggestion that that choice I have to make isn't a question of morals? That deciding my friends' lives are valuable and more important than junk food isn't somehow grounded in morals?

You should re-read what you just responded to, and then take a step back from your original argument and see where the problem lies. You're trying to shame us into accepting Chickfila's shiatty stance on gay rights just because none of us are going to drop completely off the grid and live in a field, eating berries to avoid unknowingly supporting ALL of the evil in the world. So let me repost it for you, with a bit of emphasis:

I don't think I'd buy a computer that had a sticker on it that said "We abuse our workers, and we're damn proud of it!" It's inpossible to avoid complicity with all evil in a complicated world - but I don't have to give my money to people who treat their assholishness as a prideful selling point.

Do you see it? Do you see the part where your "You're all just hypocrites because you have an alarm clock" argument stops applying? Because I can make it bolder and biggerer for you. And I agree with him. You are right. To an extent. We ARE being hypocrites. But everyone is, aren't they? Name me one person in the history of man (a real person, not a fake person like Jesus or Superman) that wasn't a hypocrite. HOWEVER. What we CAN do is stick to what our soul tells us is wrong, and refuse to support that which we believe IS wrong. Chickfila played their hand. Unfortunately, they believe in bigotry. I don't.

On this point, I would disagree. It's not necessary. It isn't our decision to make, but it isn't necessary. What you're describing is a race to the bottom, and it's never the right way of going about things. It's corporate profit-chasing run amok.

Unfortunately, the people that run these giant, faceless corporations are completely and utterly morally bankrupt. The only thing that matters is having more than everyone else. More sales, more employees, more stores, more distribution centers, more everything. Nothing is, or ever will be, enough. It's a depressing thought, but that's the world we live in.

I read the entire thread and I'm still curious. How does chikfila think they can win in a PR battle against one of America's most beloved institutions, the Muppets?

Since the late 60's, those furry farkers have taught us all about love, acceptance, and understanding. Even bigots raised on the puppets are stopped in their tracks when reminded of the words of the Sesame Street characters.

Is this corporation seriously so stupid to think that they can win this? The generation that watched the golden age of PBS will always side with their childhood friends.

Hell, I'm an atheistic alcoholic that lost all hope in humanity long ago and I keep a Mr. Rogers quote calendar on my desk.

That's not fast food. That's American food. The over-seasoning in the US is insane.

It's funny how Britain gets such a thumping for its food, when the average American restaurant serves 20lbs bowls of half butter and half salt for a meal

I agree. I've been all over the UK and found the food awesome. Don't quite understand the bad reputation.

If you want a Chick-fil-A sandwich, it's been "reverse engineered".

I have no problem with you spending your money as you see fit. I just wish people admitted they were involved in this boycott because it made them feel better, not because they're acting under some sort of moral imperative.


What? Why the hell do you think ANYBODY does ANYTHING? It's the things that make us "feel better" that differentiate us as human beings. Some people "feel better" when they kick puppies. Others "feel better" when they stand up for something they think matters. Do you hold the two to be equivalent?

Part of your money?

Unless there's something very unusual about your relationship with Chick-Fil-A, buying a sandwich there is an exchange, not a gift. You're not supporting their political views by purchasing their product, any more than they're supporting your political views by selling it to you.

Thinking of a food purchase as some kind of smokescreen for the world's most attenuated political donation seems just as foolish from the anti-Chick-Fil-A side as it would for bigots who might buy extra.

Yes, "part of". Or do you think CFA doesn't turn a profit, or doesn't write-off those political contributions? They aren't spending every cent I would be paying for their crap in the processing of their junk food. They're selling something worth mere pennies, which costs them a few more pennies to supply (logistically, on a per-unit basis), for quite a few more pennies than they used getting it to the customer. That's how business works. Part of the proceeds from every sale go to hate groups and actively working toward the oppression of a segment of the populace.

So nothing I said was incorrect. There are other options. There is no reason at all to give bigots money while other (better) options exist.

I was just saying that it ceases to be "your money" when you transfer it to someone else.

Anyway, if you don't feel that you are getting $X of value for the $X you are spending at ChickFilA then don't spend it. If someone else perceives that value and makes that exchange, then CFA is supporting that person's political views by supplying him or her with food to (at least) the same extent that he or she is supporting CFA's views by paying money to the company.

Same reason why Dairy Queen and McDonalds have "cones" and not "ice cream cones"..... their stuff is legally "ice milk", not "ice cream". Although according to DQ's website, they can now be called "lite ice cream", but, I don't think they've jumped on that.

Point 1: can Facebook shut down CFA's Facebook presence if they determine that their EULA was violated by making fraudulent accounts?

Point 2: can they be screwed by the stock company or the person in the pic because it disparages the person in the pic? Most stock agencies have clauses that you can't use identifiable people in a way to negatively affect their reputation.

pregerstheHobo: I read the entire thread and I'm still curious. How does chikfila think they can win in a PR battle against one of America's most beloved institutions, the Muppets?

Since the late 60's, those furry farkers have taught us all about love, acceptance, and understanding. Even bigots raised on the puppets are stopped in their tracks when reminded of the words of the Sesame Street characters.

Is this corporation seriously so stupid to think that they can win this? The generation that watched the golden age of PBS will always side with their childhood friends.

Hell, I'm an atheistic alcoholic that lost all hope in humanity long ago and I keep a Mr. Rogers quote calendar on my desk.

/still don't understand the logic
//I know! We'll make Americans hate the Muppets! Then we'll stilll be able to hate the f***ots and still sell shiat loadds of chickin!
///I think I just wrote the plot to the new Muppets movie


They're not. Henson's Muppets are no longer of the body as far as they're concerned. They don't care if every single Muppet fan in the country boycotts them. From their perspective, it's not about the money, it's about being morally superior. Hence, the donations to various groups that aggressively oppose gay rights, or progressive values in general. They're true believers. I'm sure they'll win some new business from bigots, but that won't make much difference to their bottom line. It's far too early to guess what the loss of gay-friendly business might mean for them, but I wouldn't expect much of an impact, at least in the short term. Ten or twenty years down the road, this might hurt them a lot more, for but for foreseeable future I doubt it will.

Did anyone conclusively prove that the sock puppet came from CFA or someone they new and authorized to act on their behalf?

The reason I ask is there's this website called Fark, and sometimes people make throwaway accounts on it just to make rude and offensive posts....

Also, southwest chargrilled chicken salad with the spicy dressing is So Damn Good. You cannot believe how pissed I am that CFA has made me choose between mouth-scorching spicy goodness and personal integrity. I can only hope that they see the light sometime soon. I can't eat the sammiches or planks, though- I can't digest them, for some reason. Might as well throw 'em directly in the turlett and skip the gut-wrenching cramps and exclamations of "how the fark did it get through me without even losing the breading!" and "the flipping pickle is STILL intact, for fark's sake!"

tillerman35: Did anyone conclusively prove that the sock puppet came from CFA or someone they new and authorized to act on their behalf?


No, no one's proved that yet, and it might not even be provable, just like it's not provable that CFA pulled the Muppet toys in retaliation, instead of for a legitimate safety concern -- you can't prove a negative. But both are suspicious, to say the least. Some folks near the top of the thread claiming to know a lot about SEO say it's a common tactic, especially for companies facing controversy, as CFA is right now. But even if is traceable to CFA, it might not be their direct doing, or their idea -- again, very hard to prove. Short of a smoking memo, it's hard to know exactly what the nondisputable facts may be.

As it happens, though, there's been very little chatter in this thread asserting either of those suspicions as more than that. It's been mostly a rehash of the CFA thread from a couple days ago, about gay rights and boycocks and such.

It isn't the only recourse people have in a free market. That is the problem. You can picket a business on public land outside the privately owned property of a business and get the word out. You can hold open forums in the place of business on the subject and the business owner can't retaliate as long as you are following the letter of the law with it. You can do many things that get the point across in a more profound way than just "not showing up" because just not spending your money there is faceless and unnoticable. Hell in Colorado, during the deliberations on the State Amendment 2 vote the entire LGBT community almost held a boycott of businesses across the state for two solid years and accounting every single business the estimated net loss to the state was around $75 million which considering the state brought in over $10 billion in just tourism those two years doesn't really amount to much. It is always far more effective to show your face and take a stand than it is to not show up at all.

rohar: Monkeyfark Ridiculous: rohar: Monkeyfark Ridiculous: Kuroshin:
So what should I do? Buy a chicken sandwich knowing full well that part of my money will go to the persecution and oppression of several very good friends?

Part of your money?

Unless there's something very unusual about your relationship with Chick-Fil-A, buying a sandwich there is an exchange, not a gift. You're not supporting their political views by purchasing their product, any more than they're supporting your political views by selling it to you.

Thinking of a food purchase as some kind of smokescreen for the world's most attenuated political donation seems just as foolish from the anti-Chick-Fil-A side as it would for bigots who might buy extra.

That's right, and it'd be the same if Charles Manson owned Chick-Fil-A (fark I'm tired of typing that with all the hyphens) and wasn't jailed. Just because the owner of a chicken joint is a despicable excuse for a sack of meat is no reason to question giving him money!

That's a really convincing argument, because murder is exactly like political speech!

Imagine someone holding an opinion contrary to what the mob thinks.


This is one of the things that always irk me when people think that all you have to do to be "edgy" is hold an opinion that is "contrary to what the mob thinks". Like being a unique snowflake automatically makes you a rebel.

"HA! Everyone thinks the earth is round, well I'm gonna say it's FLAT! I'M SO PUNK ROCK! YEAH! "

Sometimes, holding an opinion contrary to what the majority hold simply makes you an idiot. Doing something to BE edgy automatically makes it not edgy. It just makes you a hipster douche. And if you're doing something to BE edgy to make it not edgy so you can be ironic then you're a grand poobah hipster douchebag.

I'm making the point that so many posters in this thread are incensed that the owners of CFA
are adhering to their sincerely held beliefs. They seem to think it's wrong to not go along with
the rest of the lemmings. What makes the mobs consensus any more valid??
.
They are not discriminating against anyone.
They are not intimidating anyone into complying with their wishes.
They are not forcing anyone else to agree with them.
They are not depriving anyone of their rights and freedoms.
They are exercising their 1st amendment right to follow their consciences as their faith leads them.
What makes their beliefs inferior to the beliefs of those that disagree with them?

If someone has a beef against the Cathy family doing with their money what they wish to do,
then they should start their own business to compete against CFA and use any profits earned to support the
causes which they prefer. But, that would take more commitment than just biatching and calling
someone a "hater", so that's probably not an option.

As for the grand poobah hipster douchebag comment...

I don't eat at Chick-fil-A because of their religious wack jobbery, same with In and Out. I actually don't eat fast food period, but I'll tell people who talk about those places what their stances are.


So.... you dont eat fast food, but you boycott chic fil a and in n out, and you dont drink coors, but you you are boycotting them too?

You are impacting the world in amazing ways with your boycotts.

I don't agree with Chick-fil-A, but they haven't broken any laws nor are they infringing on anyone's rights by expressing their opinion.

The mayor of Boston made it a matter of public record that they would use the power at their disposal to hassle Chick-fil-A for no other reasons than Chick-fil-A's opposition to gay marriage on religious grounds. That is corruption and religious discrimination. The irony is that the mayor's declaration made it more difficult for anyone in Boston to do anything to Chick-fil-A. If CfA has any difficulties with permits, fire marshals, health inspectors or whatnot; CfA will run to a judge and use the mayor's statements to claim discrimination. The mayor's behavior isn't just unethical, it is poor strategy.

Rationally, "the power at their disposal" refers to lawful actions, whatever anyone thinks of them specifically. CFA is using the powers at their disposal to prosecute what they believe in (or at least what they say they do -- many outright bigots hide behind the Bible, that's not new at all). Same for Boston. Menino isn't some guy who took office by armed force. He's been elected four times in a row. Clearly, the People of Boston agree with him, and vice versa. At this point, it's probably fair to say that when Menino speaks, he speaks for the People of Boston. And the People of Boston, abrasive as they may be (I used to work there, don't get me started) have made it clear they don't want CFA there. It's not just Menino and city government who are ready to fight. It's all three million people there. Even if CFA somehow managed to lay a foot on the ground there, they can count on it getting stomped. Boston's not a 'nice' town: If Cathy opens a store there, he just might get to find out what a chicken sandwich with brick and broken glass tastes like. Menino's being pretty decent, I think, in giving fair warning.

But this isn't unique to Boston. CFA has 1614 stores. Not a single one anywhere in New York or New England. It's not because we don't like fast-food chicken -- we've got plenty of KFC and Popeye's, just for starters. It's because those companies aren't publicly pissing on the things we believe in. They *did* have a few stores here, that all got run out. Welcome to equalisation, biatches.

But i had no idea that this many Farkers had such horrible taste in food.
I've had the misfortune of tasting Cick-Fil-A's "food" on a couple of unavoidable occasions. It's hog vomit. Greasy, slimy, salty, foul hillbilly chow. Why would anyone deliberately subject themselves to swallowing garbage, let alone like it? Have they no taste buds?

Apparently, you believe that an elected official in the U.S. is supposed to some bureaucratic apparatchik who stays out of the way and lets riots solve problems. Not so. As a duly elected representative of the People, Menino is not only legally empowered to do these things, but obliged to do so. You may disagree, but if you do so, bear in mind that you're actually objecting to the Power of the People that folks like Bostonians take deadly seriously. For Bostonians, the Revolution was not so long ago, and they still think like Minutemen. If you think one guy is the problem, you're sorely mistaken. Menino by himself is nothing, just a pasty old white guy; he's powerful because he's got 600,000 angry assholes backing him up. And unlike him, some of them don't care much about what the law says. You can make of THAT whatever you like, but the practical upshot is that Boston isn't a good place for CFA.

I know it isn't much, but if they are going to fund hate groups, I'm going to use their water and paper towels for free. Now if I can just get a few thousand more people to do this, it will slowly eat into their profit margins, which is really the biggest concern of the business I'm sure.

Same can be said the opposite direction though and it's that free speech everyone is up in arms against. I'm for equality in way of life and beliefs for everyone including CEO's of major companies. Just because it's a large company doesn't mean they don't have the same rights as we do. We try to stamp out anything we don't like but really that's against what the U.S. Constitution grants to all of those that live there. So you give your money to PETA to keep me from eating this T-bone steak I slapped on the ass and told to stay on the plate and let them pay money to whoever they want. What you REALLY need to be doing is phoning your local Congressional member and making sure they vote for equality not regulation on beliefs and ways of life.

As I've said before, boycotts do very little to actually get anything done. Unless you single handedly can stop all commerce of a company in its tracks then you wont make a dent. This has been tried many times before and it never gets the job done. Boycotting is anonymous and you can't take a stand if you're anonymous. Everyone complains that CFA is so against the LGBT community and yet I've worked for one and worked with two openly gay men one of which MANAGED the store. The company knew about their orientation and they were working their anyway with no ostracism. Most of the charities they CFA supports are for gay therapy which many might not agree with but seriously if someone is going to one of those for help it's because they wanted to go there themselves to "get help" and that's their business not ours. Really there are far better things to be fighting for like getting ALL of our damn troops back home like the bastard in the White House said he would do before he went into office.

It doesn't matter how many times Menino has been elected or how much support the gay community has in Boston. It is unlawful for the government to discriminate against a business for stating their religious beliefs, and that trumps everything you posted.

Even if I was wrong (which I'm not), do you think our nation would benefit from allowing politicians to pick and choose what businesses are allowed on their turf based on the company's position on the controversial issues of the day? That would be ridiculous.

MadMattressMack: PoochUMD:
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?

You've never looked into getting one of their franchises. They are cheap to get ($5,000) but there's so many people trying to get one that the odds you get it are way low. Along the lines of 75 new licenses per year out of over 10,000 applications. And with that comes strict stipulations. Such as the corporation chooses where it goes. If it's not where you want to be then too bad. You can't be trying to do anything else besides run the restaurant. You can't have more than one and try to incorporate them.

Plus 15% of gross sales AND 50% of the profits go back to the corporation. So yeah, half of all cleared profit goes back on top of the food costs. This is unlike other franchises where only a small amount goes back to cover mainly corporate advertising. Their franchise rules are the worst out there.

Sources are here (franchise reviews) and here (CFA's website)


Damn, the franchise fee is really low, but the only thing that gets you is the right to use their name and business model. To actually build, equip and open the restaurant you're probably looking at $750 grand to a million.

I don't know a lot about restaurant franchises, but the royalties are high and I've never heard of a franchisor that takes from both the top and bottom line. And fifty percent of profits? Damn!

They've even said that they do not discriminate against gay people, and openly hire and employ gay people. What irks a lot of people is that they are putting so much money towards groups who have denying homosexuals the right to marriage as one of their primary goals.

It's like they had the policy of "We have nothing against blacks and even often employ them, but we're gonna do all we can with our resources to keep them from marrying whites."

People trying desperately to work the free speech angle in favor of Cfa are pretty much putting their fingers in their ears and screaming "lalalalacanthearyou" at this point. This IS NOT A FREE SPEECH ISSUE. This is not a RELIGIOUS ISSUE. This is a matter of CHOOSING not to SUPPORT a company that SUPPORTS AN ANTI-GAY AGENDA. It really can't be anymore clear.

And I'm still trying to figure out how a boycott is going to stop this. The only way to stop laws from being made or change laws already made is to petition your local Congressional member. Again a boycott just doesn't get anything accomplished because its anonymous and never actually makes a statement. Any financial impact will be felt by the workers at the bottom of the chain before you would EVER hurt the main company's ability to fund these groups.

I think Fred Rogers is a true, model Christian man. He doesn't hate, he loves. He may not like homosexuality, but he will not bash, hate, condemn, or fight to deny a homosexual's rights, nor will he give a dime to groups that would.

This is not an either-or proposition. How 'bout I not eat at CFA because of their repugnant political stance, AND donate to gay rights groups?

Because a boycott doesn't stop this it's like not voting for president and expecting your ideas to be represented anyway by whoever gets elected. If you want to put a stop to this you have to actually make your presence known. Not only that but when you boycott a business you boycott other things too like the farmers who provided the chicken they server who also might be LGBT for all you know or the company that supplies its bread which btw actually DOES support gay rights (Sunbeam Breads). So really who are you boycotting?

And you also end up teaching her that it's ok to make a point against one entity regardless of whoever else gets drug around in the effecta and aftermath of it. Minimum wage workers, suppliers of the company many of which are oddly enough pro-gay and actually support pro-gay charities. The problem in this country is people never think of what the lasting effects of things they do are. The immediate is all they ever care to see.

As for you saying people are loudly proclaiming it again the LGBT community tried this in the ENTIRE STATE OF COLORADO for two years and it failed miserably (around $75 mill impact over two years to a state that makes $5 bill a year in tourism alone). Not only did it not make any significant financial impact but the goal they wanted to achieve was in no way effected by it as the amendment still passed and wasn't defeated until the Supreme Court finally added the final nail in its coffin by stating it didn't meet the rational basis test. The community would have been better served by petitioning state legislatures directly which oddly enough the community largely seemed to ignore.

Boycott if you want but just realize the only one it makes feel better is you and it doesn't actually make a huge difference like other options would and the end result is going to effect others more than it will ever hurt the company as a whole. If you can live with this and it helps you sleep at night then go for it. I'll pat that single mom on the back for you on her way to the unemployment office while Mr Cathy keeps sending his money to these groups.

It's not, nor is it intended to.

If you see a homeless guy asking for change that you're sure he will spend on drugs and alcohol, and don't give him any, that doesn't mean you think he will stop begging, nor will it stop him from drinking or using drugs. It just means that you aren't helping him get high.

Get real. No minimum wage workers are being fired because CFA isn't getting my $20 every month. None of CFA's suppliers will need to adjust their charitable giving plans based on the loss of my business. Meanwhile, I have the satisfaction of knowing that my money isn't going into the hands of people working against me. That's good enough for me.

Rationally, "the power at their disposal" refers to lawful actions, whatever anyone thinks of them specifically. CFA is using the powers at their disposal to prosecute what they believe in (or at least what they say they do -- many outright bigots hide behind the Bible, that's not new at all). Same for Boston. Menino isn't some guy who took office by armed force. He's been elected four times in a row. Clearly, the People of Boston agree with him, and vice versa. At this point, it's probably fair to say that when Menino speaks, he speaks for the People of Boston. And the People of Boston, abrasive as they may be (I used to work there, don't get me started) have made it clear they don't want CFA there. It's not just Menino and city government who are ready to fight. It's all three million people there. Even if CFA somehow managed to lay a foot on the grou ...

It doesn't matter how many times Menino has been elected or how much support the gay community has in Boston. It is unlawful for the government to discriminate against a business for stating their religious beliefs, and that trumps everything you posted.

Even if I was wrong (which I'm not), do you think our nation would benefit from allowing politicians to pick and choose what businesses are allowed on their turf based on the company's position on the controversial issues of the day? That would be ridiculous.


Lawful actions are unlawful. Got it. Why didn't I see it sooner.

Do you apply the same logic to both sides? After all, by opposing gay marriage CFA is taking money out of the pockets of wedding planners, florists, bakeries, tuxedo rentals, bridal shops, printers, bands and disc jockeys, photographers, videographers, limousine services, ballrooms and caterers. Not to mention hotels and airlines for the honeymoon, and department stores for the gift registries.

We have to look past the superficial, right? Or does that only apply to me?

No my argument is that boycotts never work the way to make change happen in things like this is through making sure that you lobby for the laws that support freedom of way of life and belief and make sure your voice is heard in a public forum. By just boycotting his business you have succeeding in nothing more than patting yourself on the back and leaving things the way they are. Trust me this boycott itself will have no lasting effect as much as voicing your wishes to your local Congress member and pushing the subject into the public light personally will. Boycotts through history have always had a majority failure rate because they are too impersonal. The ones that succeeded did so because they used other methods as well and they made change happen proactively. There is no face to place with a boycott so soon people will forget it and move on. Movements like PETA make more fuss over their advertising campaigns and making sure the word is out constantly in public memory than they ever do by getting people to boycott specific businesses that don't follow their beliefs. This is just one example of many.

No the problem is that they are only focusing on the fact I said the boycott itself doesn't work and ignore all the things I said DO work. I gave alternatives and they ignored them because the lazy way is easier I guess. And it's odd you say "common sense" because a man named Thomas Payne wrote something called that that basically was all about what I said you do to make change in society. Guess he didn't understand it either. Then again people like him are the reason you actually have the freedom to do the things you are doing now.

No the problem is that they are only focusing on the fact I said the boycott itself doesn't work and ignore all the things I said DO work. I gave alternatives and they ignored them because the lazy way is easier I guess. And it's odd you say "common sense" because a man named Thomas Payne wrote something called that that basically was all about what I said you do to make change in society. Guess he didn't understand it either. Then again people like him are the reason you actually have the freedom to do the things you are doing now.



Find the spot where anyone said that we should boycott INSTEAD OF taking other actions.

I understand that's what you wish others were saying, but I really am not seeing it. You seem to be operating under the assumption that people have to choose between boycotting and taking other actions. This seems like a false dilemma. One can boycott and write to elected officials, and picket, and write news editorials, and set up websites, etc. These are not mutually exclusive activities.

I suggest that you stop making up straw men positions and accusing others of supporting them, but that's just me. Maybe that tactic works for you.

I never said that you should not boycott I just said it doesn't work alone. I even said earlier to boycott if you want to just don't leave it at that which is what it seems most people end up doing. You just didn't read everything I've said and seem to think I am just going against the boycott. I'm against people who do it only because they think its the only way or the easy way and expect things to change.

The Why Not Guy:

No my argument is that boycotts never work...

The ones that succeeded did so because...

So boycotts never work. Except for when they do.


Context is important though. I did say it that way in that once instance but previous instances and later said boycotts alone never work. I'll give you this one as it was a failure in how I said it in that one instance.


Evidently the lot of you have missed my point entirely through everyone else only focusing on one thing I said and at this point you are set in keeping that stance so you keep on with your ideas and I'll keep fighting this the way I know works. As always I will continue to focus my efforts on direct verbal debate with my government as only the government has the power to limit my freedom and not the voice and whim of a single person. If you are doing the same then I applaud you but I fear too many don't. But the obvious point is the whol lot of us are stubborn.

I would like you to read the following sentence and try to take it as seriously as possible, because it is a very important point that you seem to be missing.

Nobody is making the argument that you are trying to refute.

Do you understand that?

You are arguing against a straw man that only exists in your imagination. You are accusing others of holding positions that they do not hold. It is a sloppy, ineffective, and extremely annoying rhetorical strategy that everyone who has been on Fark for more than a few hours can see right through. Please stop doing it.

Gimmick: Sylvia_Bandersnatch: Gimmick: profplump: Gimmick: political/religious differences

It stops being a legitimate political/religious speech when it starts infringing on the rights of others. You can argue about where that line falls -- and that argument is valid political speech, and that argument might change the law -- but it is the duty of government officials to uphold the rights of all citizens.

I don't agree with Chick-fil-A, but they haven't broken any laws nor are they infringing on anyone's rights by expressing their opinion.

The mayor of Boston made it a matter of public record that they would use the power at their disposal to hassle Chick-fil-A for no other reasons than Chick-fil-A's opposition to gay marriage on religious grounds. That is corruption and religious discrimination. The irony is that the mayor's declaration made it more difficult for anyone in Boston to do anything to Chick-fil-A. If CfA has any difficulties with permits, fire marshals, health inspectors or whatnot; CfA will run to a judge and use the mayor's statements to claim discrimination. The mayor's behavior isn't just unethical, it is poor strategy.

Rationally, "the power at their disposal" refers to lawful actions, whatever anyone thinks of them specifically. CFA is using the powers at their disposal to prosecute what they believe in (or at least what they say they do -- many outright bigots hide behind the Bible, that's not new at all). Same for Boston. Menino isn't some guy who took office by armed force. He's been elected four times in a row. Clearly, the People of Boston agree with him, and vice versa. At this point, it's probably fair to say that when Menino speaks, he speaks for the People of Boston. And the People of Boston, abrasive as they may be (I used to work there, don't get me started) have made it clear they don't want CFA there. It's not just Menino and city government who are ready to fight. It's all three million people there. Even if CFA somehow managed to l ...

DeerNuts: Damn, the franchise fee is really low, but the only thing that gets you is the right to use their name and business model. To actually build, equip and open the restaurant you're probably looking at $750 grand to a million.

I don't know a lot about restaurant franchises, but the royalties are high and I've never heard of a franchisor that takes from both the top and bottom line. And fifty percent of profits? Damn!


It doesn't work like most other franchise operations. CFA picks the location (the franchisee has no choice and can't dispute it), builds the thing, and owns it outright. The franchisee never owns it and can't build equity. The franchise kicks up a huge portion of sales to HQ. That's why the entry is so low -- the owner takes very little risk and invests very little. Even the fee is returnable. Compare to, say, Dunkin Donuts, which you need a quarter million *cash* (*not* financed) just to ask. Both can make the franchisee a lot of money if run properly, but CFA 'franchisees' are not owners -- just managers.

Saberus Terras: pregerstheHobo: Hell, I'm an atheistic alcoholic that lost all hope in humanity long ago and I keep a Mr. Rogers quote calendar on my desk.

I think Fred Rogers is a true, model Christian man. He doesn't hate, he loves. He may not like homosexuality, but he will not bash, hate, condemn, or fight to deny a homosexual's rights, nor will he give a dime to groups that would. He knows that we should love our fellow man, and let God be the one to judge us when we all reach the afterlife.*

*The above is strictly opinion, no claim of accuracy is made. Please, Farkers, don't f*** up Mr. Rogers for me.


I agree with you, though I hasten to note that the main reason Fred Rogers "will" not do any of those things is that he's been dead for nine years.

Why not treat them the same way as you would a friend who is anti-gay marriage? If they are, on balance, good people you can still hang out.

Guess I just don't see politics as something worth ruining a relationship over, whether that be business or personal. Probably got a few ex-friends who disagree.

Old Smokie: Why not treat them the same way as you would a friend who is anti-gay marriage? If they are, on balance, good people you can still hang out.

Guess I just don't see politics as something worth ruining a relationship over, whether that be business or personal. Probably got a few ex-friends who disagree.


I respect your tolerance and patience, but when someone's politics include the idea that some American citizens do not deserve to have basic human rights and should be treated as less than fully human, well, "polite disagreement" is not sufficient.

Let me put it this way:

Gays are about 10% of the population of the US. Some people think that gays should not be allowed to marry the people they love.

Texans about 10% of the population of the US.

What would you say to someone who claimed that Texans should not have the right to marry? If you're like me, you'd say "f**k that; nobody can tell me who I can and can't marry! " and rightly so.

That's what the US is all about- personal freedom. Either everybody has the same rights or the "rights" don't mean squat. Rights are rights, and they are either ours simply by the nature of our existence (which I think), in which case everyone has the same rights, or our rights are "granted" to us by the government (which I don't think), in which case, some people get to decide who has rights and who doesn't. To me, the second case, which the anti-gay people are supporting, seems un-American.

So when someone tries to tell the gays "we get to decide who you can and can't marry," well, it gets my hackles up.

Now in the interests of full disclosure, I'm not personally interested in getting married to anyone at all, gay, straight, or otherwise. To me, marriage seems like a bum deal and I'm not interested in doing it at all. But that's my personal choice, and I understand that lots of people like the idea of getting married, and that's their choice. I don't want anyone limiting my rights, so I don't really care for someone trying to limit the rights of someone else. If they can deny rights to some of us, they can deny rights to the rest of us. If the owner of Chick-fil-A doesn't want to marry another guy, that's fine; he doesn't have to. But it's not his place to tell other people who they can or cannot marry. It's just "un-American" to try to limit someone else's freedom when it doesn't affect you; you know what I mean?

That's your right. However, be aware that part of the social contract in a relatively-unregulated market is that customers make purchasing decisions based not only on quality and value of service and product but also on the spending decisions of the company. (In this case, funding anti-gay groups.) We call this "voting with your dollar."

If you're opposed to voting with dollars, you should support a much more regulated marketplace, in which, for example, companies pay higher taxes to support social safety nets and/or are not allowed to contribute to political causes.

In other words, people who are choosing to boycott Chik-Fil-A are using the tools that a somewhat-free market gives them. There is nothing illegal about what you're doing but there is something anti-social about it (i.e. you are demonstrating that you indirectly do not treat gay people well) so people are judging you on a social level, not a legal one.

/same argument for people hating on Tosh - it's not illegal to suggest that a women should get gang-raped because she heckled a performer, but it indicates certain unsavory aspects of a person's character.

You try waaay too hard. For a more successful trolling career, I'd recommend:

A) Showing up to the thread when it's actually active
B) Be more subtle. No one believes it when you go full-tilt into retard mode.
C) Make some kind of sense, even if it's only to other trolls. Right now your posts read like you're not only socially retarded, but mentally retarded as well. No one likes arguing with a special needs person.

If you could iron out those problems, you could actually make a decent troll. You've certainly got the spirit, you just need focus. You're all over the place. A good troll makes you wonder if maybe the person is serious, if even for a split second. Your entire "rant", coupled with the fact that you meekly waited out all the real discussion in this thread tells me you're not ready yet. Keep practicing, though. One day you might actually be good at something.

Saberus Terras: Sylvia_Bandersnatch: Saberus Terras: mooseyfate: Saberus Terras: Sylvia_Bandersnatch: I agree with you, though I hasten to note that the main reason Fred Rogers "will" not do any of those things is that he's been dead for nine years.

Damnit... Will you permit me to move these goalposts to he "didn't" do any of those things?

Unless you have linkable evidence... then I'll eat crow/my hat/my words and go cry.

Sorry, Phil Payne used of all the goalpost moving in this thread. You'll have to wait until the next thread about Chickfila shooings themselves in the foot, which should be any second now.

Damnit2!! So is this when I'm supposed to start foaming at the mouth and vehemently denying he's dead, and that he's really in Guatemala breast-feeding a pair of puma cubs that lost their mother to poachers?

To be fair, we only have the reports of the liberal media that he died. It would be in their interests to try to conceal a living Rogers who didn't parrot their socialist agenda.

Bah, I suck at this. Sorry.

So do I. Wanna meet up for drinks? :P


Unfortunately, I think there's over a thousand miles between us, and travel is costly these days. :(

mooseyfate: No, in true idiot coward form, you've arrived several days late and a few hundred dollars short. Have fun raving to no one in particular with these opinions that you just suddenly got "brave" enough to post in a dying thread.


so i took your advice and posted in an active thread found here

do you have something you'd like to add to that one?

or you do you plan on showing up in true idiot coward form, arriving several days late and a few hundred dollars short. Having fun raving to no one in particular with these opinions that you just suddenly got "brave" enough to post in a dying thread?

sorry i can't hear you over how cowardly your silence is...
