    The Georgia-based fast-food chain Chick-fil-A has never hid its conservative leanings, but now the full scope of its antigay agenda is coming to light — according to Equality Matters, the charitable arm of Chick-fil-A distributed over $1.7 million to antigay groups in 2009 alone.

    That's their right as a business to donate to whomever they see fit.

    As for me, I'll make my own chicken sammies, and they'll be likely healthier for me too.

    To you, yes, but many people like to use their money by rewarding businesses they agree with. Money is power--everything we buy is a vote in favor of the product and/or business. It's not much different from buying supplies at local shops instead of large chain stores like Wal*Mart. No one is arguing that Chick-fil-A's should not have the right to donate to anti-gay organizations.

    It would be like me not doing business with any company that sends money to democrat shit. I heart cawfee and even tho its not my primary or my favorite Coffee is coffee when Im driving around and sleepy.

    Because I refuse to also buy in to what the gay political machine says I need to do to get equality or whatever.

    Their food sucks anyways. Blandest chicken I've ever had. Even Carls Jr. has better sandwiches - and they are pretty shitty!

    This isn't a democrat/republican thing--it's deeper and more specific than petty partisan politics. I do not want to support Christian evangelical fundamentalist organizations or those who support them. Some of us are idealistic. I refuse to shop at Wal*Mart for many reasons as well.

    If you were to stop shopping at businesses that support the democratic/republican party that is your choice... I'm sure some radical idealogues do.

    I've never eaten at a Chick-fil-A before in my life. Now I have incentive never to try it. Besides the fact it's tremendously bad for you to begin with.

    Carl's Junior has some bombass spicy chicken sandwiches for a dollar. That alone is a good reason not to buy from Chic-fil-Awhatfuckingever.
