So this is a hypothetical 1st amendment debate. I love those.
lol @ anyone who waits in massive lines for slightly above-average fast food to prove a political point that doesn't need to be made.
the owner of the company believes that other human beings dont have the same rights he does because an old book of fables told him so...imo thats the beginning and end of it....
i dont really get why a hater giving money to hate groups is surprising or newsworthy...its like saying rush limbaugh is a racist and thats to bad...but wait - he also gives money to the kkk!!!!
what the hell no way!!!!....im never listening to him again
When the Sonic opened up in Bel Air they gave a discount to military, police, and EMTs but told the firemen to fuck off. Not sure how that worked out for them.
Probably burned to the ground.
a lot of firemen got in trouble for making a similar job on facebook.
LOL. What did you buffoons think was going to happen? Most of the people in here who are pro gay marriage are attacking peoples religion by calling them stupid and the bible a book a fables.
You want to know why things don't get done in this country? Its because of you. Gay marriage can work in this country and most people wouldn't care. Keep protesting in front of churches and equating it with the civil rights marches and you've now backed most black people and religious people into a corner.
For the record, I'm not religious and I'm pro anyone over the age of 18 can marry anyone else over the age of 18.
I'm sooooooooooo ashamed. The Terp football team would feed the players Chick-Fil-A bag lunches after games, and I ate one once. This has got to stop. Boycott Terps Football. Oh wait!!!! Most of you are already doing that. Carry on.
Those comments drew a sharp response from Rev. William Owens of the Coalition of African American Pastors. “Some people are saying that because of the position that Chick-fil-A is taking, they don’t want them in their cities. It is a disgrace. It is the same thing that happened when I was marching for civil rights, when they didn’t want a black to come into their restaurant," he told a press conference in Washington, DC.
Do you think he has the slightest idea how hypocritical he sounds? (btw, he is trying to argue in favor of Chick-fil-A, which may not be obvious by his words).
Yeah, a minority used to have their equality denied by the majority - just like how the gays are fighting against Chick-fil-A 's right to equality! Oh wait....
If the mayor said "Catholics or Baptists aren't allowed to open restaurants in our cities" would that make it more apparent?
A powerful New York politician claims she was just speaking as a private citizen when she tried to run Chick-fil-A out of town, but she used her official letterhead and even invoked her position as City Council speaker to apply pressure on the embattled chicken chain.

That goes to show the inherent insanity of liberals, taking offense when none is given.
And you'd be posting this exact same thing if he got his chicken from some pc chicken company, too.
Do you really think the only threats to freedom of speech or freedom of religion occur when 'Congress makes (a) law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech...'?
Look, my love of free speech puts me on the side of "Cathy can say and believe whatever he wants" in this debate, but I'm not sure it is "inherently insane" to take Cathy's comments to oppose gay marriage. What on earth do you think he was talking about when he said he supports the "biblical definition of the family unit?"
Actually, yes, I would. It would be equally absurd and a hilarious/pathetic level of pandering if someone on the left was trying to make some political point by his choice of chicken. (And I think Ted Cruz is brilliant and I strongly support smart people like him of all political persuasions entering political life.)
I think you, and they have read way too much into his words in SUPPORT of the family. That's fine, although a bit touchy, imo. He hires gays, he serves gays, in full compliance with the laws.
What makes libs loony, in my mind, is how they've reacted to him having an opinion of his own, that they don't like. This is the hottest topic on this board, and not because board conservatives keep praising the guy. Rather, it's because of the ass holes on this board calling him a monster.
No, what I meant was, if Cruz somehow ended up with chicken from a gay-owned chicken restaurant, or anti-family chicken shack (if there is such a thing), or a commie leftist Marxist poultry co-op, you'd have poked fun at that, too.
Basically, you just wanted to make a cheap chicken joke. It's okay, I understand cheap jokes, I make them all the time.
This is rather true.
And as early as page 3, most rational people were saying, "Lots of people hold lots of stupid opinions. IMO this is just one. Where's my sammich?"
He is just lying or can't read. I have no clue how you can read that article come away thinking Cathy wasn't negative towards gay marriage.
Oh come on that's code talk.
When people talked about "states rights" in the South after Brown everyone knew what they meant.
I don't think the guy is evil or anything like that but I do think that his opinions on this issue are repugnant in ways that I wouldn't if I disagreed with him about the environment or something where I think reasonable people can disagree.
(And I think it's completely reasonable for people to want gay marriage out of their church. I don't care about that one bit. That's their business, not mine. The focus on the law for all is what I'm against.)
Data point 1: When asked whether his company had an established position against gay marriage, Cathy said, "guilty as charged."
Data point 2: Cathy expounded on his comments as follows: "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. I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."
Data point 3: Cathy reiterated that Chick-fil-A is “very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit."
YOU INHERENTLY INSANE LIBERALS!! HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST HE WAS TALKING ABOUT GAY MARRIAGE/!?!?!?!?!?!?

Yeah, he's clearly against gay marriage because of his churches religious beliefs. I don't know how you can argue that isn't what he's saying.
Dude is allowed to believe what he wants.
