    i dont think its shitty to not give your money to a business because you dont like what they believe and support. but i just kinda think if yer gonna be the kinda person who is all into not giving your money to these places - you should also really be looking into every business you give money to before doing so. otherwise you are just satiating yer ego. just sayin'

    What do you expect from a company that still believe the Sabbath laws are still in effect and that the Sabbath is Sunday?

    While I usually don't care what the opinion of the owner or CEO of a business is, it is a special case when one goes out of its way to hinder gay people with the money it gets from sales. I'd support a boycott on this no matter how tasty the chicken were.

    My money is gay too.

    They're pretty ridiculous. They were one of my clients when I worked back in Atlanta after they fired a gay teenager because they didn't approve of his lifestyle thus denying him tuition reimbursement that they offer to all employees. This was back in 04? They're notorious for doing shit like this. Their customer service 800 numbers has "approved language" so they can spin shit like this including their reasoning for closing on Sundays so they can still take your money, but not look like the evangelical freaks that they really are.

    I pretty much wrote them off years ago - despite the fact their the fastest growing "Quick Serve Restaurant" in the US.

    This honestly hilarious, because the chik-fil-a in my hometown in Texas was staffed, almost completely, by gays. IDGAF what he says, because clearly he's out of touch with what's going on with his business. They make great food and I'm sure his anti-gay sentiment will die with him and not carry on in the business.
