cman: I applaud him taking a stand.

He took a lot of risk doing this.

I am curious if Chick-fil-a has some sort of franchise agreement that they can terminate under such a condition




Probably not... discrimination laws supercede contract law. In America, you can say whatever you want, have whatever opinion you want, and fund whatever you want... but if you actually discriminate during a business transcation, your ass is farking grass.

Ugh, not this shiat again. Can we just assign a GUID to every political belief so nobody's feelings get hurt by labels?

I doubt they would. He was letting the gheys know they're welcome to come into that establishment and spend their money there. That's presumably true of all chick-fil-As. He'd be a bad Christian if he discriminated.

Chick-fil-a sells a product that includes a product made by a company that supports same-sex marriage.  So since we're basing our preferences for products based upon that company's political stances, I've never known if they're really opposed to same-sex marriage or were in favor of it, because they're a company whose CEO took a stance against same-sex marriage, but they also support a company that is in favor of same-sex marriage.  This make me more confused.  And hungry.

Loucifer: Wendy's Spicy Chicken. It's not nearly as good, but it will do.


Except all the Wendy's where i live are owned by the same shiathead who had "We support Chick-fil-a" on the store marquee last year.

Not supporting companies that don't support hate groups is HARD.

You do realize that:

2) They will serve anyone and then use the profits to fund their Hate

Hell their franchisees could have "Gay is A OK" nights and I still would not east there due to the corporate ownership

A-1 Self Storage - cornering the self-storage market, I'm sure
Auto Zone - see above
Babies R Us - overpriced yuppie crap
Boy Scouts - how ironic
Celestial Seasons - whut?
Chick-fil-A - really need to elaborate? I think we've covered that
Cinemark -
whut?
Dole - fark pineapples and bananas
Domino's Pizza - tomato sauce on cardboard. Worst pizza ever
Exxon Mobil - fark them, and fark you if you support them by buying their product
Gold's Gym - juice head magnet, full of farktards
Humana - whut?
John Deere - trailer rat magnet
Keebler - fark elves
Kellogg's - fark cereal
Meijer - mediocre midwest grocery store, none where I live. I don't see why this is a problem.
Purina - oh no! What ever will I do with only one dog food supplier?!
Radio Shack - retards, HAM radio dork magnet
Salvation Army - I'll set a bag of dildos out on my porch, see if they pick those up
Sam's Club - bulk priced crap from WalMart
Toys R Us - overpriced
Urban Outfitters - contradiction in terms
Walmart - biggest trailer rat magnet. EVAR.  fark the Waltons and any douchebag that supports them by buying their cheap, imported-from-China merch

There.  Funny how I managed to come up with reasons not to buy from any of those places without reasons involving their stance on gay marriage, huh?  I wasn't aware "all of these companies" shared that stance.  Substantiation required, bub.

seems kinda dumb to be all butthurt about a place that stands out against the grain to be extra nice

but hey, if one man has an antiquated view on homosexuality
then each person at the 1,600 shops that buy the use of a business name that guy is associated with..
must all be evil bastards

Huffington Post still plays two or more video feeds at once and the pause buttons still don't work.

Today, Huffington Post is trying to get me killed and Chick-Fil-A is feeding my LGBTQ brothers and sisters.

I should go back to bed.

JohnnyC: robohobo: JohnnyC: Phil the SWO: I didn't know about these until now, so thanks for helping to keep my money from funding hate!

Meijer shouldn't even be on that list. Never trust a troll... ever.

Wiki.

Yeah... Wiki is just a bastion of 100% accurate information.

They're not anti-gay... they just don't advocate one way or another. They don't offer benefits to unmarried couples regardless of the genders involved. If the state of Michigan starts recognizing same sex marriages, I'm sure Meijer will offer benefits in the same way they currently do for other married employees. To call them anti-gay for not taking a stand and not advocating one way or another is quite a stretch.

But by all means... keep on taking everything on Wiki as 100% accurate.


Yep.

Which condiment serves as a better lube when you're farking that chicken? Honey mustard or Polynesian? Don't say barbecue, because that's just crazy talk.

I suppose this guy read his franchise agreement before he did this. Perhaps he even consulted his lawyer.

I guess the main question for Fark business lawyers though is whether the money though is still filtered up to corporate and then going right back to the anti-gay causes (don't know how it works). I do think we had a thread though where CFA dropped the particular groups, but I don't remember.


To be specific, they'd already stopped well before the outrage, but somehow that bit of the story didn't get quite as much airtime. (Kinda like when all the charges were dropped against that guy the editors demanded castration for.)

No, we're not.

I've worked with Shane before and he is an amazing guy, and he does a lot of good work for the community. But he got PLAYED by Dan Cathy. It's one of those cases where pure evil takes advantage of the person who tries to find the good in everyone. Dan Cathy is a manipulative monster.

Two things to keep in mind:

(1) When CFA released a statement saying they would no longer fund bigoted anti-equality groups, they still held a biker rally the next week...and asked attendees to make their bigoted donations directly to the anti-equality organization.  This way, the money wouldn't pass through CFA hands and they  technically would not be lying about not funding the bad men themselves. They still organized the funding drive and they will again.

(2) When Dan Cathy courted Shane, he specifically picked someone with ties to colleges, where CFA was battling to keep an on-campus presence despite their bigotry violating the ethics code of the schools. He also, as was astutely pointed out by HRC, selected because he is not a CPA. When Dan Cathy let him casually review records "proving" CFA wasn't funding bigoted orgs, it was a farce.

No, you can't go back to Chick-fil-A

And yet the thread right beneath one is about a gay, homosexual activist viciously assaulting and trying to rape a Godly man who was against sodomite marriage.

Each franchisee pays a contractual percentage of their store's profits to the main corporation, as part of their franchise agreement. So while the local franchisee owner may not be a bad person or even agree with the corporate president and major share holder, I will still have to refuse supporting them.

When I don't like a business establishment, I just go somewhere else. I don't feel compelled to boycot, protest, tweet about it, blog about it, go nuts on facebook, call my local news, and then finally fark about it. What is wrong with you people you need to do the same thing for everyone who is not like you?
 
2013-03-29 03:58:09 PM  
Lol, riiiight.  This is just for one particular store, not Chick-Fil-A as a whole.  Besides:

Braun told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin. "I wanted to show that Chick-fil-A doesn't discriminate against anybody. We serve everyone.

Of COURSE you'll serve anyone, you're interested in their money.  That was never the issue.
The issue was the opinion of the Chick-Fil-A ownership and their contributions to anti-gay groups.  Which still happens.  So screw off.
This is basically just saying "Uh oh, our opinion is unpopular.  Quick, do something to mollify the gays or we might lose business!"

A Google-ing reveals you to be a level 1/2 non-commital troll. You post a lot of whatevers and lazily attack women and homosexuals for being born different than you. But your greatest flaw? Daring to call National Treasure an Indiana Jones for the next generation. How dare you!
