Meh. I wouldn't care if CFA kicked small puppies in their parking lots just for fun...as long as they keep making that Chick-Fil-A sauce.

@mm4731: Nice! You and roseann should get together...See, that's what I'm talking about.
Why did you have to post something so demeaning like that? I hope you are trying to make fun of that red neck in the pic and don't really believe that disrespectful comment ...that's me trying NOT to be hateful toward you.

Does it matter to people that Saudi Arabians own Churches Fried Chicken?

My favorite fried chicken is Popeye's.  But now that I know that they fry in beef tallow, I rarely eat it.


@Retired_Engineer: Church's is listed as being owned under the name "cajun operating company", even though they are owned by the arabs. This makes sense as to why you see more church's locations opening up with  brand new arab owned gas stations. As for that beef tallow, some ( not all) mexican restaurants use the same thing to fry the tortilla chips in.

I mean really what are people going to do:

Prepare a questionnaire and distribute it to all of the folks I buy stuff from (barber, dry cleaner, vet, grocery store, every restaurant I go to) ask them to report in on their political and religious views. Then loudly cease doing business with all of the folks that aren't on the same page as me, and loudly and publicly wish them harm. 

or

Keep doing business with these folks, and be really nice, considerate and kind in spite of our differences. 

As for me and my family we'll be eating Chik-Fila!

@mm4731: Yeah, that was nasty. I see admn removed it...it must not be just me.
And read the previous posts to see what Roseanne said. In short she said people who will still go to Chick-fil-a should die from cancer.

Up until a few months ago, Obama's official position was against same sex marriage (Its not "gay marriage." Gays can get married now. They just can't marry each other.) who was his Chief of Staff? Rahm Emmanuel! Where was Emmanuel's righteousness then? Rich!

I don't think it's a matter of only liberals making a big deal about it. I'm by no means a lib but I fully support gay marriage. I think that what the mayor of Boston is doing is an abuse of power & is somewhat childish, but I think that more than anything he's making a statement about taking a stand against homophobia, & in my opinion that's a good thing. Now don't get me wrong- I couldn't care less who does & doesn't eat there. I do not agree with the owner of chick-fil-a's view on gay marriage but that will not stop me from eating there. I definitely understand the issue others have though. What if the owner was racist or against rights that directly effected you somehow? Would you not have a problem with that? I'm sure to people who aren't gay or don't care for gay rights, this isn't a big deal. But to people who are gay & those who support the life style, they fight for equal rights every day so this is a big deal. The owner isn't an evil person & is more than entitled to his own opinion, but if he's going to voice such controversial opinions, he should have expected some back lash. That's just to be expected. 


@Heathur:

Racism isn't the same as being against gay marriage. The owner is not saying that gays shouldn't eat at Chik Fil A or that gays are bad, shameful people (for example). He  only said he believes marriage is between a man and a woman. What if the owner was racist? I think racism in definition is far different from being against gay marriage. Even if his views were racist, but he was not "putting it into action" (such as attempting to only hire white people) it would still be my choice to eat there or not. He's against gay marriage, but is he doing anything to shame, harm, or descriminte gays? A big fat NOPE.

Conservatives are asking to show support by eating at Chick - Fila on Monday.  Those in favor of gay marriage certainly have the choice NOT to eat at Chick -Fila, but should not be bashing the owner for voicing his view-point.  Now, if he made it a policy that Chick - Fila will not serve gays, or anyone that supports gay marriage, that would be an issue they could cry about.  Otherwise they need to respect his viewpoint, not agree with it, but respect it.


@manhunter:

I have no problems with liberals boycotting the chain just like I have no problems with conservatives boycotting a restaurant where the owner proudly supports gay marriage.  We can choose where we eat based on any number of reasons.  Free country. 

So I don't understand what the hubbub is about.  Nobody has to respect anything.  I don't respect Obama's views, I don't respect liberal views, I don't respect most left-wing views.  I can't ask that liberals "respect" the opinions of others in the same way.

In any case, this obscures a bigger issue.  Have you seen the nutritional value of their sandwiches?  Sure, let's eat there on Monday and get a coronary!  There are much healthier choices if you want chicken, although I admit their waffle fries can be quite addictive if you must go the deep-fried route.

@Horsemagic:

Being against rights for African Americans isn't a whole lot different than being against same sex marriages in my opinion. It's denying someone a right who deserves to have the same exact rights as every other American citizen. I also followed that with "or any other right that effects you directly." I wasn't trying to harp on the racism thing. We have different points of view & that's great, but it does not change the fact that if he's willing to voice his opinions publicly, he should accept the backlash that comes with it. He should have expected it when he opened his mouth, it's just common sense.

I didn't boycott Starbucks for "supporting the gays" and I won't boycott Chik-fil-A for not agreeing with same sex marriage.  I don't buy my goods and services based on the CEO's political opinions.  That strikes me as silliness.

I just want my damn chicken and coffee.

@kpdad:
Uhhhhhh, I think you are missing something. This isnt about a citizen boycotting a product. It's about government officials using laws to prevent businesses from opening because they dont agree with the CEO's personal views. If you can't see the difference, you opinion is too misinformed to be taken seriously.
