Chic Fil A Appreciation Day

I was out there to protest against this job creating, wealth building and stable family promoting hate corporation. The turn out was massive at my local store in support of the franchise. Quite frankly I'm appalled. Anyone else experience similar failure at the hands of intolerance?

I'm not against gay marriage, but I support the first admendment more. The fact that a mayor would block a business from setting up in his cities that would bring more jobs just because he doesn't agree with their political stance is bull**** to me.

But no I didn't go eat there.

I thought that would be obvious considering my posting history.

Humor aside

What do you guys make out of the turn out around the country?

Hardly surprising, if you can get people to assemble en mass for church, getting them to show up at Chik-fil-a's a ****ing walk in the park.

I caught a few segments on the radio. Quite a few homosexuals calling in, in support of the establishment. Which I found fairly surprising considering the twist that was put on the COOs words.

Fighting hate with hate will only get you so far. Eventually you just learn to accept them for what they are and bide your time. Homosexuals know they'll eventually get the rights they seek, it just may take a generation or two more.

Why do people automatically assume that people that don't agree with gay marriage "hate gays"? Did Obama "hate gays" before he flip flopped on the issue? Was he banned from having a business in Chicago? Wouldn't that be the same as people on the right saying Obama "hates business" because he thinks somebody else made that happen?

Literal interpretation is literal, you should have read it as a common phrase.

That being said those who show up to actively support a company who's leader is so outspoken against equal rights probably have pretty strong feelings.

I'm against any mayor/city banning it from opening in their area.

That said, I do support a quiet personal boycott to any who also disapprove of the restaurant because of the anti-gay places their donations go to.

But public protests and news coverage is ridiculous. We should have more important things to talk about, even in the LBGTQ realm specifically. As far as citizen protestors, both sides have every right to do it, but really they both look dumb in the process. I mean who stands outside of a fast food joint yelling about gay rights? Dumb.

Although I do think this was a dumb move for the company. They might get some extra sales in the short term, just because of the free advertisement of this news circus, as well as many people purposefully eating there more often now to support some misguided cause. But long term, I'm guessing there will be a large chunk of the population who never eat there again, since they have now been painted as an anti-gay rights establishment.

The company has been openly Christian. I don't think this whole thing was their orchestration.

It's not a right for them. Civil unions with the benefits are fine by me. The title of marriage is not. The leftists who are trying to ruin this guys business just because he expressed his religious beliefs deserve to be deported because they are a danger to the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. That's textbook Communism.

I'm aware. Most people who eat there are likely aware of the company values as well. But the founder did make the statement, and even included, "...we are inviting God's judgment" which sounds to me like he is saying that America is at risk of God made disasters for our inability to repel homosexuality in our culture.

The major news outlets are likely at fault for the circus though. Heard the statement, spun the story with polarizing sides, drew a line in the sand, and waited for battle. Really just the spin changes pending where you first heard the story.

lol I can't help the rights are only granted through marriage. Open them up for everyone and replace marriage with civil unions in the law books and we're golden.

Read Dan Cathy's statements. He's the definition of a hater.
