Chick-fil-A restaurants face day of "Kiss In" after conservatives deliver record sales

Aug 3, 2012 | Posted by: Burento | Full story: www.cbsnews.com

Gay rights activists and other supporters of marriage equality plan a national "Kiss In" at Chick-fil-A restaurants Friday to protest the fast-food chain owners' opposition to same-sex unions, two days after gay marriage foes delivered the chain a one-day sales record.

Why is it that Chick-fil-A has an opinion about everything except good food?

The CEO of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, was asked a question. He professed his Christian faith about keeping marriage between one man and one woman. He didn't say anything about homosexuals.

I don't see why they pick on him, don't they know how much harm they might cause every employee and vendor, if they hurt his sales? Don't we have a right to say political opinions without jeopardizing livelihood?

I heat Ben and Jerry's ice cream, even though I don't agree with their politics. If I lived by a Chick-fil-A, I'd eat there to show solidarity against the shutdown of civil discourse.

If chick-fil-a does not pay a living wage with health insurance they have no business calling themselves 'christian.'

Then I suppose you don't recall him saying this?

"We’re a restaurant that has a hospitality that says we’re here to embrace everyone who wants to come and be part of Chick-fil-A. We have a whole spectrum of team members that work with us who are part of the gay and lesbian community. They know as employees of Chick-fil-A that they are welcomed, they are embraced, and they are part of the Chick-fil-A family. So to be identified with some sort of hate group that has a political agenda—that is not Chick-fil-A at all.”

He's a hypocrite and not a very good one at that.

So just I understand.... you *Heart* Ben and Jerry's, right?

anyway ...*WE* have a right to express socio-political opinions.*We* have a constitutional right to express them.

There is NO right to be immune to the ramifications and consequences of expressed opinions, particularly in the marketplace. IF there are un-lawful actions against the speaker(s) of such opinions, those should be redressed in our legal system.

I haven't been in a Chick-fil-A in quite awhile and I've not making to point to go partake or protest.

I just hope Mr. Cathy's going to make enough profit to pay for more cow commercials.

Yesterday the local New Bern newspaper had an article about how the local Chick-fil-a was packed with people the day before in support of what the CEO said.......the reporter saw a person in the parking lot driving through waiving a bible out the window shouting churchie type bible thump'in stuff.
One dude interviewed said "I just want my sandwich". Chick-fil-a IMO should keep to making their fast food and leave the rump riders/kitty lickers to do what they do.......ride rumps and lick kitty
And some people, should stick to posting only in game threads and leave the intelligent posts to those with a minimum of a 4th grade education.

So, HomeDepot can publicly support Gay farce marriage, but if you are not for gay marriage you can't say anything? Blah! Too bad whiners. Nobody is "attacking" you. You can cornhole each other or whatever you want in private, but you don't redefine marriage into a perversion. Marriage is one man and one woman(and maybe some Robot on the side).

personally i have never been affected by gays in anyway whatsoever,never had a gay proposition me or try to convert me to being gay(yeah because it's a "choice"right?)
but yet i've had many family oriented so called morally correct christians harras me and proslytise to me on how i should accept jesus or i'm going to hell,etc and ad nauseum.

personally i wish christians would read thier bible now and again because thier are many things in it on family values that would get them arrested today.

something to think about...

Question:

When the Vice President of a major fast food chain dies of a heart attack, does that make all the greasey chicken sandwiches and greasey waffle fries taste that much better?

Long the friend of the do-good, halo-bearing SB's of the south - the bible is not without it's flaws.

The bible is an interesting read, but I prefer the pre-stepped on version in Hebrew - a lot more believable stories, recorded long before the idiots re-wrote it.

Example: The bible puts dinosauers and man living in the same time period - kind of like Fred Flintstone.

"So, HomeDepot can publicly support Gay farce marriage, but if you are not for gay marriage you can't say anything? "

Where did THAT come from? Of course, you can. And boycott Home Depot. Organize the hell out of the boycott.

AND ... your group can be criticized. See? Same process with Chik-fil-A and any other business. It all works out.

See my previous post about this.

i agree with you on that and no one says they can't,but it seems to be the anti gay religious nuts that have the problem with gays protesting chick-fila-a
i don't recall the so called million moms having a problem protesting jc penny for having ellen degeneres as a spokes woman.

everyone has a right to thier opinion and to be able to say it under the first ammendment. the first ammendment however does not shield you from the consequences of what you say

now here is a thought that's likely to set the religious nuts on edge. religious folks say that man was created in gods image. well if that's so then god is also a little gay since he created gay people as well....

Oh! So you see bigotry as a business? Perhaps, with more bigotry we can erase that deficit, end taxes and all live unhappily ever after?

BTW, if you heat Ben & Jerry's ice cream, you're not getting the full effect of the ice or the cream.

I can assure you that I am not homosexual. I have, however, dined at Chick-fil-A once in my life and can't for the life of me figure out how they sell over-priced McDonalds' chicken sandwiches like they do. Protests aside, I can't believe that all those people would spend $10 for a re-packaged McDonald's chicken sandwich, large cup of sugar water (sweet tea) and some greasey, hard as hell, waffle fries. Like I said, they have something to say about everything except good food.

You need to read page 2 of this thread - he contradicted his earlier statement. Cathy doesn't know if he's foot or horseback.
