August 1st - KFC sales go through the roof.

Sometimes a chicken sammich is just a chicken sammich. I don't care if the person making it beats his dog, watches granny porn all-night, cheats on his taxes, or is a moronic bigot. Everyone's got their own issues to deal with. I just want some chicken.

So there's no difference between a guy who beats his dog and a guy who donates millions of dollars to anti-gay groups, in the name of disenfranchising basic human rights? If you can't spot the difference, or if you perhaps don't care about rights of your fellow citizens, then you deserve all the artery-clogging cholesterol you can shove into your craw.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino even went so far as to tell the Boston Herald that "Chick-fil-A doesn't belong in Boston."

"You can't have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population," he said, according to the Herald. "We're an open city, we're a city that's at the forefront of inclusion."


Hmm. Gays allowed in your St. Patty's Day parade yet?

Clean your own house, Mayor.

Do you ask the opinions of every single employee of the places at which you shop?

Are you willing to have your money go to some low level schmoe's paycheck if he's going to donate that money to Fred Phelps?

The issue isn't that Chick-fil-A's owners have bronze age views about sexuality. The issue is that Chick-fil-A's owners are using their profits to undermine equality.

I can patronize a business with owners that have different political views from mine...in fact, I'm pretty sure I do.

But, the moment I'm made aware of the fact that a business is using the profits that I HELP GENERATE to stand in the way of progress, I'm going to decline to give them my custom.

Seriously, how is Chick-fil-A's announcement that they're funding hate groups different from, say, the neighborhood butcher putting up a sign saying he'll donate 50 cents from every purchase to the American Nazi Party?

If KFC has any brains at all, they'll jump on this and make a KFC anti Chick-fil-A, pro-rights event out of it.

Sadly, the most likely way to get Americans' attention on social issues is through their cholesterol-laden stomachs.

2012-07-25 01:50:22 PM  
IMHO
The main 2 reason why the religions various holy books tell their followers not to have gay sex is first to make more babies (not needed anymore) and second so that converts will not go back to their old religion (also not a problem now). The place where you find the most problem is when later scholars reinterpreted the original texts. [I also see Paul as a scholar for the new testament whose writings do not belong in the bible]

This is getting right to the heart of the issue; People who oppose same-sex marriage see it as an attack on their beliefs and are convinced that if it was legal they would be inclined or even forced to run to the local airport bathroom for the sodomy they have been trying to avoid all their lives.

Well that's a crappy argument. Because it's unrealistic to know what EVERYONE does with their money, you shouldn't boycott the one person who HAS made it perfectly clear that he's donating your money to anti-gay groups? I support gay rights, C-f-A money goes to anti-gay groups, therefore it's out of the question I give them my money. Why is that even issue?

I've found in these threads that a lot of people support gay rights, but "omg chicken biscuits are soooo good!11!" You can place everyone into one of the following groups:

1) I don't care about gay rights, so I'll keep eating there.
2) I do care about gay rights, so I'll stop eating there.
3) I care about gay rights, but can't stop because it's soooo good. Don't worry I feel bad! (which is a little pathetic)
4) I like to sh*t on people in group 2) because I myself am in group 3) and want to feel less guilty about my patheticness.

I would argue that legalized discrimination (within private groups, such as Augusta National Golf Club or the Ku Klux Klan) is an expression of the 1st Amendment right to freely assemble (and implicitly associate). While there is nothing illegal about assclowns being assclowns, I feel that it's perfectly acceptable to call said assclowns out for being assclowns.

Chick-Fil-A's owners and management have every right to believe what they choose to believe. If they control the majority of the company, they have every right to use that money in legal ways that maximize their marginal utility. And I have a legal right to NOT send them money.

How is a boycott affecting first amendment rights? If a company is promoting an agenda I disagree with it's not my job to support them. That's like saying "Donate to your local parish. I don't care if you're an atheist do it or you're trampling their religious freedom."

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier:

I would argue that legalized discrimination (within private groups, such as Augusta National Golf Club or the Ku Klux Klan) is an expression of the 1st Amendment right to freely assemble (and implicitly associate). While there is nothing illegal about assclowns being assclowns, I feel that it's perfectly acceptable to call said assclowns out for being assclowns.

Chick-Fil-A's owners and management have every right to believe what they choose to believe. If they control the majority of the company, they have every right to use that money in legal ways that maximize their marginal utility. And I have a legal right to NOT send them money.


To clarify my own words (should have done so earlier), I am only in support of private groups exercising their right to pick their own members/beliefs. Any group that allows the public to join or serves the public or is related to public service should be sued until bankrupt for that crap.

Okay: Starting a private club that's for X only, and serving dinner to X only members at a closed location

Not Okay: Starting a restaurant that allows anyone off the street to come in and eat, then denying service to X individuals.

At a corporate level, KFC has been run by idiots for 10+ years.

They've been chasing Chik-fil-a for some time now, and having this grand opportunity fall into their lap will be completely wasted. Their concept of PR is practically non-existent (Example: Free grilled chicken Oprah coupons!).

Later this year they'll be re-introducing Chicken Littles - that classic tiny little chicken slider sandwich that was hugely popular back in the day and still has a significant fan-following online.

The Chicken Little is back!

Except its not.

Its a totally different sandwich. Its a KFC Snacker with a different bun.

It is nothing at all like a Chicken Little.

So why is it being called a Chicken Little?

Because, at a corporate level, KFC has been run by idiots for 10+ years.

I'm confused about why this story has become such a big deal. I find it extremely hard to believe that there isn't a good body of knowledge floating around of people putting much more money into much more destructive causes that doesn't catch on. Of course gays should get equal rights, but at this point the cause has all the momentum and gay marriage is a couple decades away at most barring some sort of cataclysm. This guy's money will not cause a major setback, I'd say that even getting everyone to talk about it is more likely to do that by bringing even more polarization to an issue which is already heavily polarized.

That's the bit that always gets me--I have yet to hear a rational reason why letting gay folks marry would have any effect on the marriages of others.

Fighting to take people's right is not a positive thing, no matter who is behind it.

Bring Bachmann's Husband too. I'm sure he'll finally feel the wave of support he will need to remove his beard.

I find it extremely hard to believe that there isn't a good body of knowledge floating around of people putting much more money into much more destructive causes that doesn't catch on. Of course gays should get equal rights, but at this point the cause has all the momentum and gay marriage is a couple decades away at most barring some sort of cataclysm. This guy's money will not cause a major setback, I'd say that even getting everyone to talk about it is more likely to do that by bringing even more polarization to an issue which is already heavily polarized.


I think it's a big deal because Chick-fil-A has always had this super-friendly, wholesome image, so it's a bit of a shock to see them supporting policies that discriminate against a segment of the population.

Chunkabee isn't even wrong in calling for this day of support or whatever; if Chick-fil-A supports policies he agrees with, then I guess this is consistent. It's the claiming persecution part that infuriates me.

It looks like Jim Henson Company might be using this episode to retaliate against Chick-fil-A for pointing out possible safety issues in their puppet toys.

In this universe, however, causes come before effects and not t'other way 'round.

The Jim Henson Company could only be retaliating against Chick-fil-A for that if Chick-fil-A made the first move regarding the toys, and not after the Jim Henson Company issued their statement saying they won't partner with Chick-fil-A again.

Does your backwards view of everything even extend so far that it shatters your understanding of causation?


The Chick-fil-A sign in the photo says that the voluntary recall of the Henson toys began on 7/19. Hensen announced their boycott of Chick-fil-A the next day, on 7/20.

And besides, the Henson Company knew for long time that Chick-fil-A was a Christian company that donated to pro-marriage organizations. They didn't just discover that on 7/20.

So there's no difference between a guy who beats his dog and a guy who donates millions of dollars to anti-gay groups, in the name of disenfranchising basic human rights? If you can't spot the difference, or if you perhaps don't care about rights of your fellow citizens, then you deserve all the artery-clogging cholesterol you can shove into your craw.


If I knew that a business owner beat his dog I would shop there either. And I definitely will never spend another penny at CFA despite the fact that I lived on their sandwiches through my years at Emory U.

I remember knowing that CFA was a christian based restaurant back when they featured Bible quotes on their packaging. In n Out does this too.

The difference is that In N Out, despite it's owner being a Born Again, doesn't spend millions backing groups working against the civil rights of others. For Huckabee and others to say its an attack on Christian values is at best disingenuous.

I checked with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is usually the one issuing the statements regarding recalled toys. A rep at the CPSC told me that the agency has no record of any recall related to these toys. I've asked Chick fil-A for comment on why it chose not to involve the CPSC in the recall and will add any statement the company provides on the topic.

UPDATE: In spite of the language on the above sign, a rep for Chick fil-A says "This is not a recall - it is a voluntary withdrawal."

It started with the COO of the company making comments over the weekend in an interview about how they are fighting to prevent gay marriage. The Jim Henson Company found out about it and put out a statement that they supported gay marriage and as such they would no longer allow their products to be in kids meals and would give all profits from their business deal with Chik-Fil-A to GLAAD. Now Chik-Fil-A is trying to say that they ended the relationship with the Jim Henson Company because the toys were faulty, and claim they did it last Thursday despite only announcing it after the Muppet press release.

The Boston stuff was mostly just a coattails thing by a politician, just like this Huckabee stuff is.

Hey, that's genetic. He can't help it. To millions of people, cilantro tastes soapy and metallic. There's some sort of gene that affects how you taste cilantro, and many people of northern European descent don't have it. It's true. Go look it up.

bullshiat. Hatred of cilantro is a choice. He probably had parents who hated cilantro and taught him that it was ok.


Now that's funny.

Wow, falsely claiming a company's products are dangerously defective? Really?

That bone-chilling sound you just heard was Jim Henson Productions' legal team having a collective orgasm.

They should totally sue for defamation and then donate any monies they win to some pro-gay civil rights organization just for the lulz.

/Well, yeah and cos it's a good thing to do .


They already said that the money Chick-fil-A paid them for the promotion will be donated to pro-marriage equality organizations, which is a great start. I see nothing wrong with suing for defamation.

I'd boycott Chick-Fil-A, except their food is freaking awful so I already don't eat there.

Honestly, how much salt does a chicken nugget need on it? Are you people aware there are flavors other than "salt"? I appreciate that your chicken is actual chicken and not the sort of malformed gunk McDonald's calls chicken, but you don't have to use three pounds of salt per pound of chicken when cooking it.

If they're the kind we picked up last week, they're these plastic cubes with slots to put paper facial features in, kind of like a Mr. Potato Head. The cube is split and hinged, so it's vaguely mouth-like, and you put your thumb in the one hole in the back and use a little tab on the top hinged portion to make it look like it's talking--you're actually working the head not the jaw. It's cheap and honestly, kind of a sucky toy, but then again, Chick-fil-a toys have generally sucked, since they don't tend to do movie deals or anything. The Green Lantern toys from McDonald's were a heck of a lot cooler.

I've got no problem with them being sued for that kind of stuff or denied a business license if an existing store was proven to carry on like that. But what's at issue here is some corporate stiff making some sh*tty comments and a few mayors openly admitting they're going to ban some independent franchisee from opening a store in their city. Presumed guilty of some violation of the law before they were even allowed to break ground. People should have a problem with that regardless of what side of the aisle you fall on....I guess unless you'd be equally okay with some republican mayor not allowing a franchise to open in a town because the CEO of that company supports gay marriage.

The food is ok (its fried chicken on bread with a pickle) but it isn't that good in my opinion to constantly have that many people there.

because "supporting traditional marriage" is done solely because of religious objections to homosexuality. There is absolutely nothing that people who engage in heterosexual marriage lose by allowing homosexual marriage to occur. There is no legal, moral or even logical argument against gay marriage. God is not angry that you want people who care about each other to be able to reap the legal benefits (and drawbacks) that marriage confers. If anything, God is happy that you favor easing the lives of "sinners" if that is what they even are.

You oppose gay marriage because you find homosexuality to be icky. Even that in itself is not objectionable but get over your own selfish feelings and allow people to enjoy life and legal protections as you do.

Well, now, let's give Chick-Fil-A's owner benefit of the doubt.

Maybe Dan Cathy is actually against interracial marriage and thinks the Constitution should be amended to deal with Loving v Virginia.

He really should clarify which group of people he thinks are not deserving of equal protection under the law - non-whites or just gays/lesbians.

They have financially supported groups that actively fight to keep gays from being able to marry. They support the idea of preventing gays from being married. Preventing gays from getting married is a cause they wanted to donate money too. OK, maybe they don't hate gay people, they just want to continue discriminating against gay couples, that's all.

I agree with you except one point.

Well, Massachusetts has a couple of them.

a couple of them? Have you ever been to Provincetown? I'd say they've got a far more than a couple.

Google only showed a couple at first glance, and as I have no interest in ever going to Massachusetts, that's as far as I got.

Hehe, it was a same-sex couple joke.

lordaction: I just want a liberal to explain to me how supporting traditional marriage means you hate gay people. This is the only way these people know how to argue. Think unemployment is high means you are a racist. Don't support healthcare laws means you hate women. Liberals always claim to be morally superior intellectuals but they sure do argue like a child. If any of them actually knew who their fathers were I'm sure they would tell me that he could beat up my dad.


ok..."I support traditional marriage" in America today, usually means (CFA is a good example) "I am against gay marriage". The anti-gay folks are too cowardly to come out and say what they mean so they say something else. It's be like someone who opposes trucks saying "I support cars" rather than actually saying "I'm against trucks"...you know, pathetic.

now no one actually said it means "I hate gay people", like you're pretending, but we are saying that if you're going to actively work to limit the rights of gay people you're a bigot and you wont be selling any chicken to me.

jst3p: p-e-t-e: I've got no problem with them being sued for that kind of stuff or denied a business license if an existing store was proven to carry on like that. But what's at issue here is some corporate stiff making some sh*tty comments and a few mayors openly admitting they're going to ban some independent franchisee from opening a store in their city. Presumed guilty of some violation of the law before they were even allowed to break ground.

They aren't being presumed guilty of violating anything. They are being told "You are an asshole. We don't want your asshole business in our city."

Perfectly legit.


Not legit at all. These people are civil servants in place to uphold the laws as they are written and that is it. So unless there is a valid zoning issues or some such other land use ordinance not allowing specific types of businesses in certain locations those civil servants shouldn't give two sh*ts whether it's a Chic-fil-A or Ruth Chris Steakhouse. I'll ask again....would you be okay with a Republican Mayor not allowing a resident of that city to open a franchised business because the CEO of that franchise made comments supporting a liberal cause?

lordaction: skullkrusher: lordaction: I just want a liberal to explain to me how supporting traditional marriage means you hate gay people.

because "supporting traditional marriage" is done solely because of religious objections to homosexuality. There is absolutely nothing that people who engage in heterosexual marriage lose by allowing homosexual marriage to occur. There is no legal, moral or even logical argument against gay marriage. God is not angry that you want people who care about each other to be able to reap the legal benefits (and drawbacks) that marriage confers. If anything, God is happy that you favor easing the lives of "sinners" if that is what they even are.

You oppose gay marriage because you find homosexuality to be icky. Even that in itself is not objectionable but get over your own selfish feelings and allow people to enjoy life and legal protections as you do.

I agree with you except one point. In most countries - looking at Europe - where gay marriage is legalized church's are being shut down and/or having criminal charged put on them for not marrying gays. If a congregation doesn't support it why should they be forced to allow in their house of worship what they consider an abomination.

that is absolutely, positively not a required result of legalizing gay marriage - true or not.
I fully support the right of people to marry others of the same gender while fully supporting religious institutions' right to not perform the ceremony.

I completely disagree. I like to take a trip to the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder from time to time. You know what I like most about it? While there are some chains it is mostly unique stores they you wont find anywhere else. It is by design and I am fine with that. The city wants to create a particular atmosphere and they do a pretty decent job.

I'll ask again....would you be okay with a Republican Mayor not allowing a resident of that city to open a franchised business because the CEO of that franchise made comments supporting a liberal cause?

I'm not splitting hairs. I've been through the zoning process with my local city and have had business plans approved and denied. It is perfectly fine for a council to pass land use ordinances - that's why industrial areas are industrial, residential are residential, commercial are commercial. It's even okay to limit the types of stores; i.e. limiting the # of "big box" stores so as to mitigate traffic, sprawl, etc. it's why strip shopping centers often have a few "anchor stores" and the rest are smaller ones; I'm sure a developer would love the higher rents and larger square footages of all big-box stores in a retail development, but traffic would be a nightmare. I've got no problem with limits like that. It's the heavy-handed, finger-in-the-wind tactics going on that I think set a bad precedent.

I've got no problem with limits like that. It's the heavy-handed, finger-in-the-wind tactics going on that I think set a bad precedent.


Would you condemn a mayor who told the KKK "We don't want your white sheet laundry service in our town" (assuming such a store existed and it complied with all civil rights laws)?

It doesn't. What a strange question. Is that how you wanted to phrase that?

It's a valid question to your question below, phrased just as you typed, and it's in regards to my not agreeing with the heavy handed tactics of a mayor not allowing a business to open based on something someone said.

Soup4Bonnie: Does your hypothetical liberal cause make second class people out of a segment of the population? Does it deny them equal rights?

lordaction: I just want a liberal to explain to me how supporting traditional marriage means you hate gay people.


For starters, kindly be honest in this discussion. This is not about supporting traditional marraige. When (not if) gay marraige becomes a constitutionally protected right on the Federal level, straight people will have the same freedom to marry as they always have and always will. So let's put to rest this bullshiat about traditional marriage being under threat. If you really believed that, then instead of lobbying against same-sex marriage, you would be looking to ban divorces in this country.

As far as hating gay people, yes, I suppose you can argue that you could be against gay people marrying, but not necessarily hate them in the classical tradition of the word. The etymology of the word "hate" in the context derives from the civil rights struggles for non-whie races. The efforts of bigots who strive to keep a group of people being treated as second-class citizens have become knows as "hate speech". So, I suppose you can argue that just because you don't want those coloreds using the same restroom as you doesn't mean you hate them, you just don't like the thought of sharing a restroom with people you consider to be lesser than you. Same scenario applies here. You know damn well that gays getting married will have zero impact on your marriage (if you are married), you just don't like the thought of gay people enjoying the same rights as straight people. You may not hate blacks or gays. But you hate the idea that they should be considered your equal, not your lesser.

p-e-t-e: jst3p: p-e-t-e: I've got no problem with them being sued for that kind of stuff or denied a business license if an existing store was proven to carry on like that. But what's at issue here is some corporate stiff making some sh*tty comments and a few mayors openly admitting they're going to ban some independent franchisee from opening a store in their city. Presumed guilty of some violation of the law before they were even allowed to break ground.

They aren't being presumed guilty of violating anything. They are being told "You are an asshole. We don't want your asshole business in our city."

Perfectly legit.

Not legit at all. These people are civil servants in place to uphold the laws as they are written and that is it. So unless there is a valid zoning issues or some such other land use ordinance not allowing specific types of businesses in certain locations those civil servants shouldn't give two sh*ts whether it's a Chic-fil-A or Ruth Chris Steakhouse. I'll ask again....would you be okay with a Republican Mayor not allowing a resident of that city to open a franchised business because the CEO of that franchise made comments supporting a liberal cause?


Has the mayor actually done anything to stop them, or has he just told them "You're assholes and we don't want you here"?

The issue isn't that Chick-fil-A's owners have bronze age views about sexuality. The issue is that Chick-fil-A's owners are using their profits to undermine equality.

I can patronize a business with owners that have different political views from mine...in fact, I'm pretty sure I do.

But, the moment I'm made aware of the fact that a business is using the profits that I HELP GENERATE to stand in the way of progress, I'm going to decline to give them my custom.

Seriously, how is Chick-fil-A's announcement that they're funding hate groups different from, say, the neighborhood butcher putting up a sign saying he'll donate 50 cents from every purchase to the American Nazi Party?

Grungehamster: christianity: I'm confused about why this story has become such a big deal. I find it extremely hard to believe that there isn't a good body of knowledge floating around of people putting much more money into much more destructive causes that doesn't catch on. Of course gays should get equal rights, but at this point the cause has all the momentum and gay marriage is a couple decades away at most barring some sort of cataclysm. This guy's money will not cause a major setback, I'd say that even getting everyone to talk about it is more likely to do that by bringing even more polarization to an issue which is already heavily polarized.

It started with the COO of the company making comments over the weekend in an interview about how they are fighting to prevent gay marriage. The Jim Henson Company found out about it and put out a statement that they supported gay marriage and as such they would no longer allow their products to be in kids meals and would give all profits from their business deal with Chik-Fil-A to GLAAD. Now Chik-Fil-A is trying to say that they ended the relationship with the Jim Henson Company because the toys were faulty, and claim they did it last Thursday despite only announcing it after the Muppet press release.

The Boston stuff was mostly just a coattails thing by a politician, just like this Huckabee stuff is.


There is also no doubt that Jim Henson Company discussed ending their sponsorship with Chi-Fil-A prior to making the announcement public, which means that Chik-fil-A had plenty of time to come up with the "safety recall" cover story. It's pretty shameless.

Traditional family is considered 1 male and 1 female. The nuclear family.

No other arrangement can produce the same results. Support for the traditional family does not equate to hate.

It's old-school and perhaps a bit antiquated, but gay-marriage has no need for some of the benefits that come from current marriage.

If an employer refuses to extend benefits to a gay employee's significant-other in the same manner the employer would extend benefits to the significant-other of a hetero employee, does that equate to hate? Or is it just reasonable?

Why would a gay-couple have a significant other that should be classified as a dependent?

It wouldn't matter if the gay couple could be legally married because then they could get the same benefits as a married straight person.

freedom of speech requires the freedom to speak without fear of reprisal from government (within "fire in a crowded theater" sort of limits). I certainly don't think the intent is to protect you from direct punishment as a result of the words while allowing government to punish you indirectly for your speech. Speak out against the governor if you'd like, we won't jail you. You just won't be able to get a driver's license, hunting license, fishing license, gun permit, business permit or a library card.

You're missing the point. It's that you can't always use the same arguments used for instances of fundamental rights being violated when what's being discussed is merely a set of privileges. It's why the people who claim that you'd be violating a church's "free speech" by actually holding them to the conditions associated with tax exemption (or revoking it if they continue to flout it) sound silly.

Now, it might even be the case that a license to do business is a special kind of privilege held to a higher kind of scrutiny that wouldn't abide by those kinds of conditions. All I'm saying is that there are other arguments to be made, and that it's not an "open and shut" case of a fundamental right being violated.

It's a slippery slope because of the suggestion that cities would end up targeting individuals for spite's sake (not sure why else they'd be taking away somebody's library card or driver's license) for merely speaking out against a governor, as opposed to regulating organizations that are actually using the privileges that they've been bestowed to shape the political landscape in certain ways.

Let me go back to the tax exemption example to illustrate the point I'm trying to make. Somebody who didn't understand the justifications for the various scenarios in which the exemption can be revoked might (and occasionally people actually do) ask "How is it alright for the government to give out tax exemptions that they can just revoke if they don't like what the organization is saying?"

And on the surface, they have a point - it would be problematic if the government set up a system whereby tax exemptions were given out based on how much they personally liked what the organizations where saying. Only trouble is, that's not the system that actually exists (nor is the system that does exist likely to evolve into something even remotely resembling that).

As far as I know, Menino hasn't even proposed an actual change in policy, so it's meaningless to claim that what he's said amounts to something as specific and malevolent as "I don't like what you stand for so I am going to use the power of government to punish you". What I do know is that it would be fairly simple for such a policy to be crafted in a manner such that reasonable people would have a hard time interpreting it as "I don't like what you stand for so I am going to use the power of government to punish you".

that is a specific requirement to retain tax exempt status. You cannot preach from the pulpit, for example. Not that you cannot have a political opinion or volunteer for campaigns or register voters. You cannot use your position in the organization at an organization event (church service) to urge people to vote for a specific candidate. That is entirely different than this situation.

rufus-t-firefly: Here's what needs to happen:

1. Same-sex couples in states that have both same-sex marriage and Chick-Fil-A restaurants get marriage licenses .

2. Same-sex couples bring their officiant and a couple of witnesses (at least one recording video) to Chick-Fil-A.

3. Have a quick wedding ceremony in the middle of the restaurant that can be completed before they're all thrown out.

4. Repeat all over the country.

THERE is your protest.


If someone wants to cover my transportation costs to get to and from the Chicago area, I'll officiate same-sex civil union ceremonies for free at the locations in the suburbs. I just need to know a few days in advance so I can take off work.

DeltaPunch: Aarontology: DeltaPunch: mysticcat: Sometimes a chicken sammich is just a chicken sammich. I don't care if the person making it beats his dog, watches granny porn all-night, cheats on his taxes, or is a moronic bigot. Everyone's got their own issues to deal with. I just want some chicken.

So there's no difference between a guy who beats his dog and a guy who donates millions of dollars to anti-gay groups, in the name of disenfranchising basic human rights? If you can't spot the difference, or if you perhaps don't care about rights of your fellow citizens, then you deserve all the artery-clogging cholesterol you can shove into your craw.

Do you ask the opinions of every single employee of the places at which you shop?

Are you willing to have your money go to some low level schmoe's paycheck if he's going to donate that money to Fred Phelps?

Well that's a crappy argument. Because it's unrealistic to know what EVERYONE does with their money, you shouldn't boycott the one person who HAS made it perfectly clear that he's donating your money to anti-gay groups? I support gay rights, C-f-A money goes to anti-gay groups, therefore it's out of the question I give them my money. Why is that even issue?

I've found in these threads that a lot of people support gay rights, but "omg chicken biscuits are soooo good!11!" You can place everyone into one of the following groups:

1) I don't care about gay rights, so I'll keep eating there.
2) I do care about gay rights, so I'll stop eating there.
3) I care about gay rights, but can't stop because it's soooo good. Don't worry I feel bad! (which is a little pathetic)
4) I like to sh*t on people in group 2) because I myself am in group 3) and want to feel less guilty about my patheticness.


This one hurts more than the Cracker Barrel boycott, I'll admit.

Not as much as my Nestle boycott, though. 100 thousand dollar bar, (now100grand) oh, how I miss you.

But fark them.

ONCE AGAIN, there is a difference between not knowing your money goes to bigotry and not caring when you find out it does. CFA fires anyone they find out is gay, CFA donates to hate groups throughout the nation, and CFA donates money to causes that directly try to get homosexuals murdered (and have had success in doing so). If you eat there, you are supporting hate. I recognize they don't advertise this in places where it would cost them business, but now you know and you have two choices. Either you implicitly support them and their hate and their bigotry, or you don't.

I will even accept, "I can't keep track," though that will reflect poorly on your mental state, because the list isn't that long.

Also you shouldn't eat there because their food is disgusting.

Hey, that's genetic. He can't help it. To millions of people, cilantro tastes soapy and metallic. There's some sort of gene that affects how you taste cilantro, and many people of northern European descent don't have it. It's true. Go look it up.

Some people may be genetically predisposed to dislike cilantro, according to often-cited studies by Charles J. Wysocki of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia.

Flavor chemists have found that cilantro aroma is created by a half-dozen or so substances, and most of these are modified fragments of fat molecules called aldehydes. The same or similar aldehydes are also found in soaps and lotions and the bug family of insects.

Considering that 1. Officially, America is a secular nation, as decided by the Founding Fathers themselves, and 2. The 14th Amendment would render any homophobic legislation unconstitutional if the SCOTUS wasn't stacked with morons, I'd really like to see somebody explain why homophobia is a good (or even legal) thing without using the words "Jesus," "God," "Bible," "Christianity," "Sin" or any other religious references.

Of course, I'd also like a portal gun with a built-in bong.

I think the portal bong is more likely to happen.

Well, no. But if the owner goes out of his\her\their way to shove it down my damn throat that GAY IS NOT THEIR FRIEND and donates to hate groups...uh, yeah, let's think about this.

Because believe it or not, I couldn't have cared less until they decided they NEEDED everyone to know.

F*ck you, Huck. I'll eat wherever I damn well please, or not, and for whatever reason.

It looks like Jim Henson Company might be using this episode to retaliate against Chick-fil-A for pointing out possible safety issues in their puppet toys.


Someone needs to forward SkinnyHead's posts to Henson Productions to use as proof in the damages phase of their defamation suit against Chik-Fil-A.

I went there as a last resort during the undergrad years. They're nothing special, and inferior to pretty much any non-sandwich-based chicken place. As I asked in another thread, who the fark puts pickles on an already soggy fried chicken sandwich? The only reason people think their chicken sandwiches are good is because the alternatives are even worse. A few schmucks with Foreman grills setting up a kiosk next to a Chick-Fil-A franchise ought to bankrupt it in short order, if there's any justice in the world.

Did you ask for the sandwich without pickles? Apparently there is no justice in the world then. I drive by a Chick-Fil-A daily and the parking lot is always full of all kinds of people. Everyone goes for their own reason and I'm almost positive most of it has to do with the food. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean everyone must agree with you and try to bankrupt the company. And just because I like it doesn't mean you should either. Just trying to make your experience better. Next time ask for no pickles.

people who can't taste cilantro properly have a freakish genetic disorder preventing their sense of taste from working correctly. thought to tie in with the sense of smell in some way as well IIRC.

The reason I don't eat at Chick-Fil-A (and in fact have not done so for over fourteen years) isn't because I'm some hipster douchebag.

I just choose not to do business with religionationalist, discriminatory douchebags (and as others have pointed out, among the fun things at Chick-Fil-A besides the mass funding of some of the nastiest anti-LGBT hate groups in the dominionist movement include religious discrimination against employees--documented well over half a decade ago, along with reports of dominionist hate-speech against members of non-Abrahamic faiths and even tabletop roleplay gamers distributed in kid's meals, as well as being a very longterm funder of various "degaying" and "Christian mental health" groups including those where kids are involuntarily committed for the horrendous crimes of being gay and/or goth).

In short, the reason I don't do business with Chick-Fil-A (and haven't for over a decade) is much the same reason I refuse to do business with Maurice's BBQ in Charleston, SC (a BBQ joint that is, shall we say, rather notorious for its open espousement of neo-Confederate secessionism and Christian Identity racism up to and including selling Confederate-revisionist books in a gift shop at the main store--and of note, it has been subject to similar protests as has been Chick-Fil-A).

I don't do business with Chick-Fil-A for the same reason I wouldn't willingly do business with the now-defunct "Redneck Shop" in South Carolina (which was incredibly infamous for not only being a racialist bookseller but actually having a room full of KKK memorabilia)--I say 'defunct', as a note, because not only was it a target of protests but ended up being hilariously pwned by a former member of the KKK group who owned it (oh, did I mention said bookstore was literally owned by a Klavern?) who sold the building to an African-American church who is now technically the landlord.

I just don't like to give what little money I have to asshats who pretty much feel I should be destroyed. Just sayin'.
