scottydoesntknow: 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.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.

theorellior: ds_4815: This whole thread just sounds like one big pickle incident.I was getting hungry for some Lucky Charms, too.
jso2897: You know, what I find shocking about this thread is not the number of people who are putting others down for making what they believe to be moral choices with their own money - that's typical of Farkers, who tend to freak completely out at anything they suspect might be any form of "political correctness"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?
Supes: I think it was this guy trolling the rest of the group.
born_yesterday: 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.
mysticcat: I wish I could quit you, Chik-fil-A.Actually, I really don't give a shiat about their backwards politics. They make a damn good chicken sammich.
quantum_jellyroll: Ghastly: quantum_jellyroll: Sounds like an echo chamber in here.Imagine someone holding an opinion contrary to what the mob thinks./begin yammering wall of consciousness effluentThis 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.God damned posers ruin everything./end yammering wall of consciousness effluentI'm making the point that so many posters in this thread are incensed that the owners of CFAare adhering to their sincerely held beliefs. They seem to think it's wrong to not go along withthe 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 thecauses which they prefer. But, that would take more commitment than just biatching and callingsomeone a "hater", so that's probably not an option.As for the grand poobah hipster douchebag comment...You're too young, to ...
Phil Payne: What I think is just stupid is how people boycott businesses thinking the business who does these kinds of things even gives a damn while that single mom trying to feed her two kids losses her job because some boycott lost business for the company and they couldn't pay her anymore. Really do people even think of these things before they act? Stand on a principle and all. I'm all for dragging them through the mud for being wrong but seriously the only people who suffer from a boycott of a company are the people lower down the chain that actually NEED the job.
Bungles: James!: 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.The same reason anyone likes any fast food. It's loaded up with salt. People mistake salt for flavor.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

MikeyistheDevil: rohar: chewielouie: Sorry, but freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom to eat tasty chicken sandwiches and waffle fries trump exaggerated outrage expressed by those who chose a lifestyle that not everyone is willing to accept or embrace as natural, and who also oppose it on moral and religious grounds.Yes, there is intolerance and bigotry, but it's coming from the left.shotglasss: Who gives a fark. I'm still going to Chick Fil A every time I want a chicken sammich. It's the best one out there. Although Panera's got a great turkey sammich that works for me too.Oh you poor bastards in the south, no access to tasty fast food. You do what you will, but it doesn't compare to Zip's./oh, and for you smug Seattlites, Dick's isn't Zips.//Zip's has an awesome chicken sandwich, and the fries are to die for///and deep fried mushrooms, without the whole child abuse fundingYou must not have ever been to the South./Had Chick-Fil-A today, will probably have some again next week//u mad?

roncofooddehydrator: HeartBurnKid: 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.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. John 3:16

victrin: mysticcat: I wish I could quit you, Chik-fil-A.Actually, I really don't give a shiat about their backwards politics. They make a damn good chicken sammich.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.
Angry Buddha: 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.
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.
The Why Not Guy: 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?
theorellior: Mr.Tangent: Can't wait for the firing of the PR agency who runs the facebook front.I liked the guy Robert giving the shill a troll score in that screencap.
mysticcat: I'd be really careful about self-righteous moral consumerism. That's a very deep rabbit hole.I'm amused by the rising hissy-fit fervor of both sides as each tries to one-up the other on attaching a moral value judgement to a friggin chicken sandwich. It's absurd.FWIW-I'm a pro-gay marriage liberal episcopalian, so I'm sure Stuart Cathey thinks I'm going to suffer eternal torment, too.
Pocket Ninja: Once pickle juice taints something you can never get it out, never.
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.
