They absolutely have the right to speak their mind against gays, its part of their deeply held religious beliefs, guaranteed by the Constitution, not that it should need to be guaranteed by anything....

The food is great quality and the places are among the cleanest and best managed in fast food - however, the reason I make the effort to eat there (even though I like beef and pork a lot more than chicken) is because the liberals hate them so much.

Heck, I'm also a vocal opponent of christians imposing their will on people (not a great fan of religion at all), but in the Chick-Fil-A battle, Chick-Fil-A clearly come out as the good guys. In fact, they are the good guys for the very reasons to liberals hate them - they (company owners) put their principles ahead of money.

I think Chick Fil A is a great fast food restaurant. I don't understand why they are being bashed on. They just stated their beliefs (which I agree with), they didn't say anything other than what they believed. I agree with Bren for Chick Fil A standing their ground and beliefs.

Why do gays need special rights anyway, don't they have rights as citizens of the United States just like everyone else.

I'll just say I like KFC better and don't visit Chik-fil-a at all. Just not impressed enough. I appreciate free speech but don't prefer individuals speaking on behalf of a corporation. There probably are gays and lesbians that have to hide who they are to work for the company, or people who support gay rights.

Second, no, gays don't have the same rights as citizens of the Unuted States just like everyone else. Case in point Sally Ride: An America Hero died last week of cancer, an Astronaut, first woman in space, and her partner of almost 30 years (or so) can't get government benefits that a male survivor (husband) would have.

From all reports I've read, they welcome gay customers, and treat gay employees well. So they are not discriminating against anyone. They merely express their religious beliefs that gay marriage is immoral. One article I read says they are using personal funds for donations, and are not even using company funds to donate to that cause.

Food for thought. Still want to boycott them? They seem to be striking the right balance between expressing their beliefs but treating people right. Love the sinner, but hate the sin sort of thing.

CFA is to be applauded for the excellent manner in which it treats its employees. If someone is a queer or some other sort of sexual pervert, then they are wise to keep quiet about such things as no business would want to employe such people.

Homos have the same rights as any other normal person who is a citizen of the U.S. They do not however have more than equal rights

Now as to heros, partners, survivors benefits, etc., all that stuff is just hog wash. It would be hard to consider her a hero. As to the partner, it is nothing more than any other hook up by anyone else. There is no legal relationship, nor should there be one invented. As to survivor benefits, tough.

But I'll just address the hero aspect: there is no guarantee of survival, and the loss of human life in the pursuit of human space flight definitely proves the risk. If risking your life for the benefit of mankind isn't heroic, I'm afraid you'll forever be without real life heroes.

It really should have been tip-off to you if you noticed they weren't open on Sunday. They set it up that way so they would only have like-minded folks.

“Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and of directing our attention to things that mattered more than our business." Now what kind of person other than Christian is going to want to work in, or invest in, such an environment? They've pushed it as far as the law allows, and on several occasions they've been sued for going too far.

You didn't even read the article, did you? Why do I bother?

I read the article. Lets see...

"I tell the kids, 'This is not just selling sandwiches; it pays for your upbringing,'" says Yadkowski
Hard work = earning a living. OHHHH horrible stuff there

" The turnover among Chick-fil-A operators is a low 5% a year. Among hourly workers turnover is 60%, compared with 107% for the industry."
Employees stay at Chick-fil-a at a rate of 47% higher than others in the same industry. WOW must be a HORRIBLE place to work for people to stay there. Oh I know they are probably brainwashing them!!! :upeyes:

Chick-fil-A's corporate mission, as stated on a plaque at company headquarters (and by Cathy), is to "glorify God." It is the only national fast-food chain that closes on Sunday so operators can go to church and spend time with their families;
Letting employees off on Sundays to spend time with their families. They should be shot!!!

"You don't have to be a Christian to work at Chick-fil-A, but we ask you to base your business on biblical principles because they work," says Cathy.
Their business, their right. Note that you don't have to be a Christian to work there.

They screen prospective operators for their loyalty, wholesome values. God I hate those wholesome values. That's whats wrong with the world today. Wholesome values.

and willingness to buy into Chick-fil-A's in-your-face Christian credo,
Judgement call by the author, don't see anything in your face so far. Unless by Christian credo he means that pesky wholesome value thing again.

The company asks operators to pay just $5,000 as an initial franchise fee. KFC, for example, demands $25,000 and a net worth of $1 million.
Heartless bastards!

One in three company operators have attended Christian-based relationship-building retreats through WinShape at Berry College in Mount Berry, Ga.
Lets see that would mean two out of three operators HAVEN'T. Yep they are using thumbscrews there.

"If a man can't manage his own life, he can't manage a business," says Cathy, who says he would probably fire an employee or terminate an operator who "has been sinful (read immoral or illegal) or done something harmful to their family members."
Man will it never end with these people, they want moral people who are good to their family!

She says she can't hire a good manager who, say, moonlights at a strip club because it would irk the company.
Shoot who wouldn't want a manager who has a second job taking their clothes off for money. That's good public relations and promotes the values the company is looking for. :upeyes:

Latif, a Muslim, says he was fired a day after he didn't participate in a group prayer to Jesus Christ at a company training program in 2000.
That's his side of the story. I don't buy it.

Yup Guss you are right. These people are probably causing the downfall of America with their desire for honest, wholesome, employees who want to spend Sunday's with their families and who treat their families right, and who don't commit illegal or immoral acts. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

We know where the man gets his "personal funds". It's a family-owned company.

Exactly, so there is no reason the company can't make the same donations - big deal. Good luck with your "boycott" - as usual, the people boycotting Chick-Fil-A have made them more money than they ever could have by eating there.

As noted in the OP's article: "many Christians want to support businesses owned by fellow believers, and the loyalty intensifies 'when Christians see a fellow Christian being persecuted.'" That has been the recipe for succfess for religion since it was invented, and the christian and jewish religions most of all, and the boycotters are giving them a legitimate does of it in this case.

Boycotting christian businesses is like punishing Popeye by making him eat his spinach.

I, on the other hand, am an atheist and even a former member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation - In this case, I support Chick-Fil-A 100%.

Don't ever confuse Christians with Christ, my friend.

Christians aren't perfect, Christ is. Many people use the name of Christ in vain, live the vain life. Some don't.

I am convinced that many people would follow Christ, if it weren't for the "Christians" ! It's either a case of stolen name or mistaken identity.

I voted no but it has nothing to do with the Gay Marriage nonsense circling this.

I've been to three. The first the food was terrible then I gave it a second try thinking I had caught the place at a bad time - worse than the first.

The third was in a different city with the same result.

However, even now I wouldn't eat their since their president is too stupid to keep his mouth shut. If he wants to say HE is against it...great. To say his company is against it is irresponsible at the least since he is now proclaiming to know what the employees of his company want or don't want.

As for gay marraige - politicans keep this topic out there just to prevent some people from seeing they are raping this country left and right.

This arguement is as stupid as the Olympian uniforms. Politicans are on the bandwagon with torches and pitchforks at the door of RL because the uniforms were made in China - genius on their part since its deflects blame from the real problem which is politicans have created an business atmosphere in this country where making the uniforms overseas is better for RL's bottom line.

After months or years of never being able to support is leftist/liberal arguments with any credible evidence or reasoning, he has started these sarcastic "pretend to be a right-wing nut" responses. I can only assume that, since he can't make a good argument for his side, he hopes that bad arguments while pretending to be on the other side will have the same effect.

The local place here is very clean. My son did not really like the food. The local Chick-fil-a owner is a well educated very proper person with Christian values. As a non-Christian, I have no problem with that. I would go there without hesitation.

I also believe in the rights of gay union/marriage as well as the right of the Chick-fil-a CEO to vocalise his opposition.

Given the choice, I'll eat at a Chick-fil-a every chance I get when looking for fast food for the simple reason that there food taste better than McDonalds, Burger King, etc.

I would think even liberals have learned their lesson about making liberal knee jerk reaction decisions without thinking, after electing Obama.

My local CFA has a manager who is also a full time parole officer. They never had any problem with him coming in wearing his weapon.

I've had an epiphany. This has nothing to do with gay rights, free speech, or religious issues. It is all about class envy. The Cathy's didn't earn their money, they stole it from Chick-Fil-A and their customers. They can't spend it however they choose. It must be approved by their detractors.

AHA, you are just a baby-step away from seeing the similarities between the leadership of the LGBT movement and Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton.

They are pawns of the progressive Marxists as lightning rods for minority groups to actually disenfranchise those groups and seperate them from society, via protests behaviors and conduct, so they can be made to feel persecuted and therefore are easier for the progressives to manipulate.

Agreed. That I've seen for a while. I'm talking about the rank and file people, especially some of the posters on this board and some friends I've been discussing this issue with lately. Most of them either don't realize that is what they are personally advocating, or aren't willing to admit it.

Some people are trying to compare this to businesses that put the gun-busters signs up. That is disingenuous at best. If Chick-Fil-A had a no gays sign, or traditionally married couples only, or no atheist allowed, I would agree with the comparison. The private entity has the right to refuse service to anyone they wish and for whatever reason they wish, but that's not what Chick-Fil-A is doing..

If however they were to exclude groups from their establishments or divert funds to foster exclusion I might care. So, yes I'll eat there. Plus, I don't appreciate anyone telling me what I can or can't do.

My family is from a rural part of Oregon, and staunchly conservative. I grew up in the Portland area and went to college there. I worked my B**t off so I could escape and return to my family roots.

There are a lot of conservatives in Oregon but the libtards are louder,and they have browbeaten the populus areas into liberal domination.

CF sells franchises to, hires, and serves gays. The founder is simply a Christian who was asked and stated he believes marriage is a man and woman. It is his opinion, not company policy!

Hard core Liberals are the most intolerant people in the world, only open minded to their own beliefs.

I, on the other hand, am an atheist and even a former member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation - In this case, I support Chick-Fil-A 100%.+1000

I disagree with their position, quite strongly in fact. But in a free country I stand firmly for their right to believe what they wish. How does that saying go? I disagree with what you say, but will defend your right to say it? Doesn't mean I won't argue with you about it.... :tongueout:

I'd eat there. Actually, it sounds like the food is pretty good, problem is it seems there's only 1 in Michigan, and its quite a ways from me. I'll have to keep it in mind in case I'm ever in that neck of the woods.

Its just as unAmerican to deny equal marriage rights to gays as it is to punish people for their sincerely held religious beliefs. In my opinion, anyway.

I am waiting for tose who would follow orders and protest or boycott to realized how badly they are being used.

There isn't a chance that it will effect the corporation's bottom line. the people giving the "marching orders" know that.

Why, in the 21st Century couldn't they suggest instead that, say, 'thursday is gay day" at Chik-Fil-A" suggest that people from the LGBT community simply go into the franchises and have a civil meal with out a word of protest. Show people that they are a part of the community. show the franchise owners and the public they are no different than anyone else. Do something positive?

Instead the "leaders" of all of this have pushed for confrontation. I can tell you why,

Confrontation sets the the "group" apart from everyone else. this is a group supposedly wanting "acceptance" but are driving a wedge between themselves and the rest of society so then they can complain about not being accepted. As long as they are isolating themselves the yhave to get their support and sense of community from "the Group" and therefore are dependent on that Group.
If there were actually the acceptance they claim to want there would be no group and no leadership to politically direct them. They would have to think for themselves and wouldn't be as easily manipulated.

The liberal progressive left have been pouncing on and supporting every minority that has a gripe, and they have been careful to always promote confrontational solutions to keep their power base dependent on them.

Go back to the first part of the 1980s. The "Women's Movement" collapsed under it's own weight and the absolute reality that a woman, just out of college could probably make as much as her Dad had in the middle years of his career. But take a look at how many from that movement jumped on the Gay rights movement. Gotta keep the confrontation going.

Try my suggestion. Pick a "gay day" see how that works instead of confrontation.

I dare you.

Given that the question is "Will you eat at Chick-fil-A?" and not whether their position on this issue has changed your opinion about eating there, 43% is an unusually high number. Do most fast food chains get 43% of the population eating there? I'd guess not.

You and your friends would like to imagine that CFA has lost customers, but consider this:
1. Nothing brings a group together more than enemies outside the group.
2. That has been a central tool of the Christian religion (and all the big religions) since it began - "we have enemies/we are being persecuted."
3. This controversy is, quite correctly, telling people 2 things - CFA puts Christian principles ahead of money and CFA is being attacked by anti-christian left-wingers.
4. 76% of American adults claim to be Christian.

As long as christians are a majority...a big majority, this controversy only serves to alert christians that CFA is a "christian business" and the only one willing to follow "christian values" over money. Of course, many argue that thsoe aren't christian values...but even the average christian realizes that claim is mainly coming from those outside or on the fringe of their religion.

Just because you want to protest to hurt them, instead of help, doesn't make it true.

Exactly. The ones around here are not hurting for any business. As a matter of fact, I walked out of one Saturday because they were too busy. I didn't have the time to wait.

I think what has helped the cause the most is the big city Mayor's getting involved. Now everyone has to decide do they wanna support a company with Christian values or side with the mayors and want governmental discrimination and intrusion because of a personal opinion of the owners.
