Oh Chik-Fil-A, you so fuuuuuuuunny~

by
And what better way to to stand up to say, "I oppose gay people's right to get married" than to head down to a Chik-Fil-A and grab a hold of two buttery buns, split them open and gobble down some of that hot, greasy cock~! :D

I've been trying to work on getting a job since coming back to TN, and Chik-Fil-A is on my list, but also, what better way to insult this stupid campaign by being hired, then coming out and saying, "Hey, guess what buddy? You're now supporting and funding a man who has been in an official gay marriage and who is bisexual~! Suuuuuuuuck iiiiiiiiiiiiit!" XD

That's my simple two cents. >:3

I would say that on your last day of work, if you got hired there.  Rub salt in the wound.

However.  That's not why I'm going to eat there ever again.  I've discovered that Chic-Fil-A uses MSG (monosodium glutamate), HCFS (high fructose corn syrup), food coloring known to be petrochemicals, dimethylpolysiloxane (an anti-foaming chemical), soybean oil (which is 90% or more likely to be derived from genetically modified soy) and a lot of other things I can't immediately recognize.

Dimethylpolysiloxane, a type of silicone, is used in caulks and sealants, as a filler for breast implants, and as key ingredient in Silly Putty.
It is also famously used in McDonald's "Chicken" McNuggets.

And people wonder why I've all but given up on fast food.

Soooo, in simple terms Americans like who think eating chicken fights homosexuality can understand, they're eating cock >and< boobies. =0

Most of those are not actually harmful. MSG has been tested for decades with no actual harmful effects, same with HFCS (though I prefer real sugar), and there's nothing wrong with genetically modified soy.

I don't blame you for skipping food with ingredients you don't recognize, though. I try to stick to food with ingredients I can easily pronounce. >.>

Just keep in mind discrimination protection laws for gay people have been done away with here in TN. I wish it wasn't that way (cause I live here too :b) but it is, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Tennessee). I really dislike this state -_-. Still though, I bet you could get somewhere with a lawsuit if you fight the good fight for a while.

*edit*

hope this didn't come off negative, cause I'm jus tryin ta help out a fellow furry person. ^^ it's crazy in this state :b

I live down where the whole chain got started, and Dan Cathy is one of the nicest men I've ever met. When I completed my Eagle Scout project, he sent me his father's book and a $100 check at random. I still don't know how he found out, but he's very involved with the community.

My point is this: What did he say specifically (quotes) that was homophobic? All he said was, "I believe in the sanctity of traditional marriage." But even then he was in an article for a Baptist magazine. And what are the organizations that he supports that are anti-gay? Boy Scouts of Ammerica, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He's not the intolerant biggot that alot of people are trying to paint a picture of.

And the funny thing is, I'm an Eagle Scout. XD

Basically he said, "I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,' and I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is about,"

Either way, I don't really care, even though I support gay rights, stuff like this doesn't bother me, only causes it to amuse me. XD

Ditto: It's just a restaraunt.
I know people who went out on Wednesday just because of this, and they almost all said they were there because they were pissed that it was being blocked from opening in some places in California and Boston. It wasn't a protest against gays, but against the fact that it was being pressured for the owners opinions. But you're right, he did go too far with the last quote. And yes, there will always be the idiots on both sides that are alot louder than the average Joe, and sometimes they drown him out with garbage. Watching coverage of this from both sides of the aisle made me want to kill my television.

I agree with you.  Chick-Fil-A was my first job.  I hate these meaningless protests and condemnation for someone's belief.  I can understand actions, like Crackerbarrel actually firing lesbians and such, but this is just an opinion that someone doesn't agree with gay marriage.

*I* dont agree with gay marriage and I'm gay.  (Brian Kinney school of gaydom) why try to act like straights and do their mistakes in the name of Romance?

And the mayors who are trying to ban a business from entering their cities are douchebags.  Would love to see Chickfila sue them and win, because I'm pretty sure that's religious discrimination if nothing else.

He has donated to other organizations who want to be able to have the right to fire homosexuals, believe that gay people can be cured with gay therapy, reinstate DADT among other things. IRS tax forms proved that to some of the organizations he's given to. I have nothing against him donating to Scouts or to other religious groups. But if those groups are going to try and do things along those lines, that's not Christianity, that's discrimination. I wouldn't have a problem if he didn't donate thousands to organizations who does that. I know someone who went through a Christian "gay therapy" and he goes to a councilor three times a week in order to recover. He can't hold a relationship for more than a day, because he breaks down. That, my friend, is what disgusts me. I've known plenty of people who are kind for the community, give a lot back and such, but are bad people in their own way.

No matter the reason, there is no reason to donate money or support to a group to try and push religion into politics, or to take away the rights of another person. We already went through this with the Whites vs Blacks after the slavery instance.

Slavery and Jim Crow laws have nothing to do with this. I cant understand why that is the first argument people bring up. The company is  a private organization: If Dan Cathy wanted to donate to the Klan, I'd be pissed about it (and wouldn't eat there any more) but that's their right to do so. Freedom just isnt something that can be whittled away here and there. If you take away Mr. Cathy's freedom to think what he wants to about gays while continuing to run his company, what next? Will you take away a teacher's job because she voted for someone you dont like? And its called 5 degrees of separation: You can link any one person through at most five people, to another person, no matter how far apart they are, and even if they dont know the other person exists. I'm sure Cathy didnt donate to the 'Gay Torture Foundation,' but sure, any company is likely to have a few extremists about gays, though it's not a path the company is centered on. Have you seen a list of the companies, or do you just take what you're told as fact? Ive heard similar things being accused, never seen any evidence at all.


And about your friend in "gay therapy..." Im sorry: I've read about what the therapy is like. It can get pretty bad.
That being said, just tell him to walk out. Unless he is a criminal, he can leave whenever he likes, and never show up again.

That was done to him as a child, it's done and done. In order to function on any level he has to have regular counselling. That did that to him when he was fourteen or so.

And there is proof of him donating to those organizations that want to take away gay rights if you go looking. IRS tax forms linked to the IRS public sight that anyone can see. The organizations that he donates to wants to make it legal to fire gay people for no other reason than them being gay, reinstate DADT, and make it impossible for same sex couples to adopt. I won't be giving my hard earned money to a organization that donates to these people, as he is supporting them. I could care less if he just didn't support it, but the fact he donates to take away our rights is what I will not accept as a American or Christian value. And, it is the same thing basically as our past, the step after the Slavery. The discrimination, and the fact we are seen as lesser and should be able to be fired and not have rights as the "straight" person up the street.

I wouldn't fire a teacher for voting for something I didn't like, Nor am I saying that everyone should Boycott Chick-Fil-A. I am mearly stating facts that are public to EVERYONE, and letting them make their own choice. A lot of people support or oppose without knowing the true down to earth reasons why they should or should not.

I agree with you, but he has never said anything reguarding slavery. The worst thing about a mess like this are those kinds of accusations, because you would have no way of defending against them. It would be impossible for Cathy to prove that he doesnt support segregation, but now that he's been accused, he's practically radioactive. I could just as easily say that everyone who supports shutting down Chick-fil-A is a Nazi, because they would shut down anyone who disagrees with them. In both cases, it's an obvious exaggeration.
Rowannero

You missed the point as it is to me a comparison. I'm not saying he is racist, I am saying the fact of taking away the rights of one group of people is returning to the point we where AFTER the slavery, fighting for rights of a group "lower" than another group.

The problem isn't what he said, or even what he believes. The problem is that he has donated massive amounts of money to organizations who make life harder for gay people. That includes Focus on the Family, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated a hate group.
Dan Cathy has a perfect right to his beliefs. He has a perfect right to say whatever he wants. Hell, he has a perfect right to donate to any and all of these "pro family" organizations. ("Pro family" being code for right wing Christian anti-gay bigot.) Thing is, people who don't care for this stance also have a perfect right to say so, with their voice as well as their dollars.
As an atheist I greatly care about these things, because the same bigoted Christian assholes who want to fuck with gay people also want to fuck with me. Make no mistake, these people will not be happy until they turn this country in to a theocracy along the lines of their morally bankrupt, intellectually lazy and generally vapid fundamentalist beliefs. /rant

Why do you hate Christians?
shadycat
6 years, 2 months ago
I don't, or at least not all of them. I think I made it fairly clear why I dislike the ones I do. Christians have the right to believe whatever they want. (Just as I have the right to find the proposition ridiculous.) They do NOT have the right to push their superstition on me, or use the organs of a pluralistic secular democracy to force me to live as if I believed their nonsense.
My real problem with Christianity (not Christians) is that it, and the other desert religions, are intellectually lazy and teach people to be content with simple answers to complex questions. "God did it" and "The Bible says so" are not acceptable answers to me. It should also be blatantly obvious that the overwhelming focus on inculcating this stuff in small children, who are still able to believe in Santa Claus, demonstrates the suspect nature of the claim. If no one was told about Christianity until the age of, say, thirteen, it'd be gone in a generation.
Sorry for the rant but hey, you asked! ;)

Basically there is a big protest of Chick-Fil-A going on right now, as the company has been documented supporting anti-gay marriage organization by donating over a million dollars in supporting them and when the CEO was interviewed about this, his remarks were, "I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,' and I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is about,"

Yeaaah...that was just dumb. Seriously. It, at the very least is a good business move on Fil-A's part. Got them ROLLING in dough all of a sudden.

I'm all for free speech. I don't mind that they feel that way, I don't mind that he said that. But to suddenly flood them in protest of gay marriage? Wat? That's not free speech, that's 50 Shades of stupid. o3o

I would point out that Chik-Fil-A is a franchise, which means individual locations are not owned by the corporate parent. The person who owns/runs a location may in fact be cool, and wishing like hell that the people at corporate would shut their pie holes.
