    Welcome back Gerry, I was worried that you were being a bit darker than usual today. I figured you were just having a bad day. Seems you are back to your happy (gay?) self.

    @LandoGriffin: IANAL, but I don`t believe that`s true. To my knowledge, this can only be enforced for any organization that specifically receives federal (or state) funds or is a public entity. I believe that Chick-Fil-A doesn`t fall under any of these categories and thus is not subject to discrimination statutes.

    "Pretty sure discrimination by sexual orientation is against the law, so I`m calling troll."

    Not true, depends on the state, but federal law does not provide employment discrimination protection based on sexual orientation. (Thanks, GOP!)

    Simbha - thats not right, think about civil rights protests back in the day, where resturaunts would not serve people of color. The feds can regulate that because it impacts on interstate commerce.

    Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays because of Christ - interesting fact.

    And unless a person is in a protected class, you can discriminate against them all you want. Don`t like liberals? Then you can fire them or refuse to hire them. Don`t like gays? If gays aren`t protected in that state, don`t hire them because they are gay.

    America has a long way to go, but the march of progress keeps rolling forward despite conservative efforts to wind it all back to the 50`s.

    It`s probably fake; religion is a federally protected class, meaning that one`s religion cannot impact the decision to hire or fire.

    Gay-owned company hires mostly gays: OK!

    Christian-owned company hires ANY Christians?

    HELL NO! Don`t even let them open a store here!!!

    Notice: I didn`t include @nubblins & @IrishJesus because although they criticised me, they at least made a point!

    @drgnfire: excellent `catch` there! Any REAL poster would have been extensively proof-read, and such obvious typos would be removed/fixed.

    FYI, the Chick-fil-A website (source) says, "The franchised Operators of Chick-fil-A Restaurant locations [..."> set their own employment policies and procedures." So, even if this was real, which is unlikely, that`s the policy of that one franchise, not the chain as a whole.

    This is likely a fake born out of the protests by NYU students against Chick-fil-A due to their support of various anti-homosexual causes. NYU just announced on 3/1/`12 that it won`t ban the campus franchise.

    @5Cats: No, any form of discrimination is wrong. And this isn`t about "hiring ANY Christians", this is about them discriminating against non-Christians and homosexuals. There`s a big difference between "hiring mostly X" and "refusing to hire any Y".

    Chick-fil-A fans, we`re aware of a fake and inappropriate flyer that is circulating the web right now. We can assure you that this was not created or distributed by any Chick-fil-A Restaurant or any of its independent Operators. Chick-fil-A serves all of our customers, team members and potential team members with the utmost honor, dignity and respect. Thanks for your continued support!

    Not many religious offer so much hypocritical flip flopping as does the jesus based religions. Hell these people dont even know which translation to follow. Most of them have never fully read the bible, and the few that have make it a point to "forget" about the horrendous Murders that god and his followers commit.

    Yes, Chick-Fil-A is known for being Christian, which is of course something unique from most other fast food places....thus they are traditionally closed every Sunday (which really sucks when I crave something from there on that day only, inevitably happens now and then). And their food is really awesome....so I don`t care what religion they are.

    Employers are not allowed to base hiring practices on religion, creed, race, sexual orientation or anything like this implies.

    When I was a teenager I dated a young guy who was the manager for a local Chick- Fil- A store. While he never discussed with me Chick- Fil- A` s hiring qualifications, I did get the impression that Chick-Fil-A liked to hire people that shared the values of the company`s philosophy.

    To the public and especially at work, this guy like to play the good little Christian, but behind closed doors he was a religious hypocrite. To say the least, he was a player with a serious drug habit. When I called him on his behavior he simply smiled, shrugged and said, "sometimes I backslide".

    wouldn`t get away with that across here, It`s religious discrimination not to hire someone because there are a different faith. Also sexual preference discrimination. I`m not a religious man but if they said they won`t hire me because of that I would kick up a legal storm they wouldn`t win.

    Hate this.

    You can only religiously discriminate (or any other type) if you have a specific purpose, and are a non-profit organization. Yep, you are legally allowed to discriminate, but this company can`t because they are not non-profit.
