    tak, tsk, Mr. Cathy…

    Was the food provided gratis? In today’s increasingly politicized economic world you seriously must know who you’re getting in bed with… so to speak.

    It’s really very simple; why would I knowingly spend a dime with a company that is helping, or at minimum complicit, in furthering my ‘legal’ discrimination? I wouldn’t. Would you?

    We are entering a era where Corporations are happy to pander to hate groups in exchange for their business. Fine. Stay away from Chick-Fil-A. They don’t want gay business are are quite blunt about that.

    Beware of sheep in wolves clothes… and might I just say that is one ugly sheep!…LOL I agree I wouldn’t trust that man if he offered me all money in the world!

    This dude’s an idiot. Actually, he’s not an idiot. He’s opportunistically dishonest. The problem isn’t that Chik-fil-A “served” these people food. The problem is that Chik-fil-A “donated” food to this anti-gay organization for this anti-gay event. No one is saying that Chik-fil-A should turn away paying customers based on their political beliefs. We’re just saying that we are not going to spend our money at a restaurant which turns around and gives it away to anti-gay bigots. I am never eating at Chik-fil-A again.

    So a Christianist business man lies when caught doing something that may lose him some business.. that’s hardly news.

    Until he donates free food to a PFLAG event or a Pride event or say… a fund raiser for the Hetrick Martin Institute, he is just that: a liar.

    And again Andy: Please do not use the “Pro-Family” propaganda descriptor for these anti-equality, anti-gay hate groups.
    Not even in quotes or euphemistically. Don’t let them win that branding game on your blog.

    This guy’s statement kind of reflects on some individuals’ beliefs (i.e., Sarah Palin) that we all exist in our hermetically sealed vacuums. We do not. Our actions affect those around us. Burgers donated to an anti-gay organization have anti-gay ramifications. Cross-hairs and symbols of violence used to highlight certain states have violent ramifications. And so on and so on.

    I wouldn’t be caught dead in a Chick-fil-A.

    One thing I learned from living in Texas is that people can be very nice to you, as they stab you in the back. Being nice or “hospitable” means nothing. Bigotry is bigotry.

    Mr. Cathy – There is a difference between supporting all customers at your stores (i.e., Welcome to Chik-Fil-A, heres a sandwich, thank you for your money) and providing support to groups and events that are clearly anti anything. Of course you welcome all into your store to buy your sandwiches. You must. It’s the law. It’s the support of this hate group that is called into question. You have not appropriately addressed that. I love Chik-Fil-A but will no longer support your business.

    This shouldn’t be too shocking – Chick-fil-A has given out Focus on the Family cassettes/CDs/DVDs as “toys” with their kids’ meals for years. (Ironic that homophobic groups like FotF whine about alleged “gay indoctrination” while themselves preaching directly to kids from kids’ meals, of all places.) Considering all the money they pour into anti-gay groups and the soapbox it provides them in its own products, providing a free lunch like this is just a drop in the bucket. Steer clear of Chick-fil-A.

    They have the best chicken ever. They have the best service of any fast food chain. They have the best people working there. This is a good company.

    Should all straight people boycott chick-fil-a if they serve gay people? NO! come on , get real people.
