    And then they go back to using products made by a company that is most likely against gay marriage. Either that, or they used child labor to produce the product. Selective outrage? From this crowd? Never. Time to tar and feather the obscure chicken sandwich chain!

    this is not even a good way to protest because I highly doubt any of the employees have any say in any policies whatsoever. I don`t know why anyone is even making a big deal about this anyways. The owner of a restaurant has an opinion. wow... big deal.

    If you are talking about Dan Cathy, then yes, in a manner of speaking, the mayors of these cities who said they would block a business license application because of his opinion, basically violated his 1st amendment rights. So, he was denied a government service due to either his speech, which is unconstitutional, or his religious beliefs, which is unconstitutional.

    The boycott "backfired" for one day. Those people won`t be back at CFA on a regular basis, I`d bet many of them had never been there before. In the long run, CFA will lose a lot more business and that record day won`t mean much.

"I wont go to XYZ store because the owner hates blonds" sounds just as ridiculous as all of these arguments. People have a right to his or her own opinions, and i have a right not to have bull pucky shoved in my face all the time

    Uhhhh Freddy, CFA is always packed. They consistently do more business than McDonald`s on a per restaurant basis, but they have less locations and their labor cost/food cost is higher, so they don`t have the massive profits.

    I don`t see them losing any business any time soon. They are the healthiest option in fast food (next to Subway, but Subway doesn`t have drive through).

    Religion does not excuse bigotry. Religion does not excuse everything. If I belonged to a religious sect that believed mexican babies should be burned alive and I made that opinion public I would hope public officials would block my business from their cities.

    aj, CFA`s approval rating has drastically dropped (from 65 to 39 which is below the national average for fast food chains) since the incident and there are plenty of people who aren`t going to eat there anymore.

    "Religion does not excuse bigotry."

    That may be so, but CFA as an entity does not have an anti gay policy.

    Also, Religion does not excuse bigotry, but religious based bigotry is protected by the 1st amendment. (as a side note, I do not agree with religious based bigotry. Just pointing that out)

    Money given to chick-Fill-a is then given to groups that actively fight gay marriage. So I disagree with you.

    You left out a step. Money given to CFA is given to CFA franchisees who then in turn pay CFA corporate a franchise fee (usually 3 to 7%). Cathy gets a salary, but it is paid by the corporate entity. The direct profits of CFA do not go into his pocket.

    CFA donates to all manner of groups who do mission work, feed shelter, and clothe the homeless. It just so happens that one of these groups also opposes gay marriage. Lots of people do. So? It`s their right to do so.

    Here`s the question. Did CFA, or Dan Cathy make the donation in question?

    Another question. You guys cite the donation to a group that may or may not oppose gay marriage, which they have the right to do. The outrage started when Cathy gave his personal opinion to a group of Baptists at a religious meeting. Which is it?

    We are not talking about an individual restaurant. I`m sure gay people are treated perfectly fine. We are talking about where that money goes when you spend it.

    Since you want facts:

    "Though Chick-fil-A continues to deny supporting an anti-gay agenda, the company has donated over $3 million to organizations like the Family Research Council and Exodus International between 2003 and 2009. And in 2010 alone, Chick-fil-A donated over $1.9 million to anti-gay causes, more than any other year for which public records are available."

    "The WinShape Foundation is Chick-fil-A`s charitable arm, created by Chick-fil-A founder and chairman S. Truett Cathy in 1984. WinShape has received a substantial amount of funding from Chick-fil-A: in 2010 alone, WinShape received $8,067,161 from Chick-fil-A Inc."

    WinShape Gave Over $1.9 Million To Anti-Gay Groups. In 2010, WinShape donated $1,974,380 to a number of anti-gay groups:

    Marriage & Family Foundation: $1,188,380
    Fellowship Of Christian Athletes: $480,000
    National Christian Foundation: $247,500
    New Mexico Christian Foundation: $54,000
    Exodus International: $1,000
    Family Research Council: $1,000
    Georgia Family Council: $2,500

    Stated goals of the Marriage and Family foundation on their homepage:

    Opposing Domestic Partner Benefits | Homosexual advocates have worked to diminish the status of marriage by providing marriage benefits to any relationship. Already, private companies in Virginia can do so. Despite a marriage amendment that prohibits this, efforts are underway to expand this to state and local government.

    Opposing Homosexual Behavior as a Protected Class | Every year there are efforts in Virginia to add homosexuality to the list of protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

    So chick-fil-a gives money to their charitable arm. And their charitable arm gives over a million dollars in one year to an organization that states quite clearly their goal is to not only oppose same sex marriage but get rid of domestic partnership benefits and oppose homosexuals from being protected by non-discrimination laws.

    Still have the same opinion?

    How is that for facts?

    Gay marriage should just be legalized everywhere, and gay pride parades cut completely. Then nobody would have anything to complain about and just shut the drat up and carry on with their lives.

    Honestly people this is drating ridiculous. If the biggest issue in your life right now is gay marriage (whichever side of the argument you`re on) then you should take a drating trip to the nearest big city and hang out with some homeless people. Then tell me you life is drating hard because you can`t get married/seeing gay people in the streets bothers you.

    Therefor, it`s perfectly legal to donate money to them.

    SO: You oppose an American Citizen LEGALLY exercising his 1st Amendment RIGHTS.

    Facts > Gossip.

    What you call "anti-gay rights" is what others call "obeying Amwerican Laws" ok?

    Oh come on. You sited CFAs official written policy. Then you said "Obviosly HATE filled!" sarcastically. I was just proving that their actions are hate filled no matter what their "official" policy says.

    We aren`t going to agree obviously. You don`t think gay people are entitled to every single right straight people are. I do. If you would have been around 40 years ago you probably would have said black and white people shouldn`t be allowed to get married. It`s OK. The bigots always lose in the end. It just takes time.

    Most of the civilized world, including your country, has no problem with gay marriage or gay rights. So I`m sure the fact that it is still such an issue here makes us look incredibly stupid to them.

    @SnoopyBG: yes, fast food and gay sex. Americans, especially conservatives, seem to ponder around the political, philosophical image of handsome, young men in pink shirts holding hands and playfully kissing each other on the beard. I bet this is the very first image that appear in the mind of COO at Chick- fil- A, when he wakes up and proceeds to angrily brush his teeth, as he realize that he has another day before him to fight this gay agenda, the only outlet to suppress his own homoerotic fantasies, because he knows, that homosexuality is a choice and it is unnatural. It is, therefore the only solution to how he can justify suppressing homoerotic fantasies: by repeating "it`s not natural" to the extent that he is no longer even a chicken salesman.

    I think they are the real victims here. If someone opened up a hotline, "Conservative homosexuals closet hotline" a lot of this could have been avoided.
