    I stopped going to that place long ago. I hope the whole chain shuts down soon.

    I'll be sure to stop by for an Amazing Chicken Biscuit in the morning, no two and I will give away to an unsuspecting ObamaZombie.

    Surely, somewhere, there's a group
    that boycotts gays that have dropped
    money in a place named Chick-Fil-A.

    How can anybody who's gone through
    the hoops to earn the Appélation Gay
    possibly have any desire whatsoever
    to penetrate a hole named Chick-Fil-A?

    Well... good thing it's garbage. Nothing to give up for me. I will spread the word among my friends though. I hope this backfires on them. Large companies have got no business in social issues, it's bad business in the long run.

    the anger in you is so sad that you seem poised to turn something not related to the president into a platform for you to spew garbage, especially considering this post about a company that thinks you're immoral. there's a difference between being a conservative and being an idiot douche bag, and you sir are the latter.

    I've reposted this on my Facebook and I hope you'll all do the same... Thanks, Metta, as usual, for keeping us informed.

    This is an especially potent message for my fellow Chicagoans, who have been celebrating (??? blech ???) the new Chick-Fil-A that just opened downtown. I've been trying to explain that they are anti-gay, and no one really cares or believes me.

    However, if they'd put some fucking cheddar cheese sauce on those waffle fries, I'd woo women faithfully for the rest of my potato-laden days.

    However it is alright for other companies to push the homosexual agenda? This is American and even if you don't agree with the companies practices or policies, they have just as much right to voice their opinion on public issues, even if they risk a boycott, like many of you are already doing with Chick-fil-a.

    yeh, they have a right to do or say stupid things, and mixing business with religion or politics is one of the STUPIDEST THINGS any business could do, esp. when it comes to singling out a group of people who might be customers for hatred. And can you please name ONE company that 'pushes the homosexual agenda' what ever that is??? You are a fake profile and an idiot

    I can't believe this. I actually know a few people that work at the restaurant near my house and the people there are always so friendly and helpful.

    I would have to say I agree with spidey54, there is absolutely no reason Chick fil a should be pushing an anti-homosexual agenda. Although I am not an avid pride goer, I still hope for progressive movement toward homosexual equality. This isn't progression its regression. A company supporting anti-homosexuality will not be seeing me any time soon.

    it's not surprising. Chick-Fil-A is run by religious people. That's why they have a "Closed on Sunday" policy. The owner of the restaurant chain is a 90 year old Southern Baptist.

    I agree. I've never eaten their garbage, and now I never will be tempted to set foot in any of their locations. I'll be sure all my friends know as well. Southern Baptists own this chain? Why am I not surprised?

    There's quite a few that support the gay movement, though I'd hardly call it pushing an agenda. Any establishment that hosts a gaydays event down here (Disney, Universal, etc) or sets up a booth at a pride event could be seen as doing this. That's not to say they are exclusive to that, as I'm sure they support many different groups and many different events, but still to answer your question.

    But yes any business who chastises a particular group is just shooting themselves in the foot and losing money and customers as a result.

    I have to wonder how much more up in arms people would be about it if Chick Fila was openly anti-black or anti-jewish instead? They'd go down in flames in a heartbeat.

    Just playing devil's advocate...

    These so-called sponsorships are typically local franchises donating box lunches to a charity event. Here's another instance of a Chick-fil-a donating lunch to a charity golf tournament for wounded veterans: http://www.ultimatekaty.com/stories/253503-events-golf-tournament-aims-to-raise-10k-for-wounded-veterans

    I have often wondered if a Chick-fil-a franchise would likewise donate lunch to an HRC or other gay event. I wonder if anyone's ever asked.
