I can't wait to see the fake stay at home mother facebook friend that CFA invents to cite biblical sections in support of the proposition that a women's place is in the home.

"in at least one other case, this happened after the woman became a mother."

Wait, so one employee, in one store was let go because she was knocked up. And this is news?

Keep this up, and they will change their name to Cult-fil-A.

No, the complaint identifies 4 women in the same store who were fired so that they could stay home and raise their children. The Walmart case started with a complaint about one store.

Hm. Chick-Fil-A is a franchised chain. Do you blame the zealot owner or the chain?

Owner for the firing, chain for promoting outdated ideas where such an action was considered acceptable.

Chick-fil-A also collaborated with Pol Pot and pushed an old woman down some stairs.

Did the chain tell the owner to fire them? I saw another owner of a chain saying that he welcomed all people of all backgrounds to his restaurant. I don't see reprisals from corporate office from that stance.

I don't know enough. Seems like they have a case with the franchise owner, not the chain.

I was wondering that myself. The complaint alleges that the "mom's stay at home" policy is corporate wide.

Chick-fil-a once shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die so they could administer last rites.

I don't know if this store was corporate owned or a franchise, but either way it behooves Chick-fil-A to police its brand. If they've got a franchise manager who's violating civil rights law, they need to put a stop to it.

In before the 'I don't like their politics but I love me some of their chicken sandwiches!' posters.

Chicken Filet is to chicken sandwiches as 5 Guys is to burgers. Sure, a little bit better then mainline fast food but nothing like you could make at home or get at a restaurant that isn't attached to a mall or truckstop. Why people fawn over this middling fast food, swearing it's truly fresh, real and natural is beyond me. The fact that these things exist mainly in malls or attached to truck stops should be all you need to know.

I'm going to write something stupid on their FB now.

I have two cousins who were vice-presidents in major companies (one media conglomerate; one hotel chain) who were fired for the same reason, albeit given other terminology for their dismissals.

In my experience, being a native english speaker has no effect on food quality. Is it that much of a big deal?

I wish I could get mad at this, I really do, but I'm just disappointed that despite nearly any city larger than a grocery store parking lot having a decent small place that serves, not to mention pretty thorough directions available anywhere (online, even), people still frequent chain fried chicken restaurants.

Seriously, there's probably a gas station in your town that fries chicken better than Chik-Fil-A.

I'll go ahead and assume you own absolutely nothing that was made in China. Otherwise, you obviously condone some fairly horrific human rights abuses.

I see they want to be sued out of existence. I guess that saves us the trouble of a boycott.

It also proves the defenders were wrong about blatant descrimination being the actions of the owner and not the company.

Indeed. If you can't make sure every corporation is perfect and without flaw, why avoid the ones you know have glaring anti-gay policies. It's the exact same thing!!!

How many people who are blasting Chick-Fil-A for their anti-gay stance have written to their Senator or Congressperson about repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, or written letters to their state legislator about changing your state's laws to recognize the rights of homosexuals?

Because if you haven't and you're participating in this boycott, you need to shut your slacktivist ass right the fark up.

One manager does it, so it's Chick-Fil-A policy? Riiiight. That must mean that guy in the California Parks Department who's being being sued for sexual harassment is indicative of the entire state government's policies.

Let the litigation decide based on the merits of the case.

Would be politically incorrect to point out that it isn't uncommon for parents to have to take time off from work, or late to work, after they have a child?

Is it politically incorrect to say that many times the mother, not the father, gets stiffed because men tend to earn more on the average?

Would it be politically incorrect to point out it isn't an employer's place to put up with an employee who takes too much time off?

It would be politically correct to blame the father then, after all, he is a MAN.
