My brief take on all the Chick-fil-A anti-gay business:
A Little Lucidity: Chick-fell-Atio
They're a privately owned company entitled to their opinions and beliefs. In the end, who cares?
To the Firefighters union and DC33-
"Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of man you are."
- Thomas Carlyle
To Mayor Nutter:
"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."
— Winston S. Churchill
I stopped at a Chick Fil A in Alabama once. All employees were wearing crosses around their necks.
The 'greeter' welcomed us as we walked in by saying 'God Bless' Instead of the 'My Pleasure' that we are used to hearing up here, they said 'God Bless' It was pretty odd, but I didn't care at all. The food was fast and pretty good.
Like PS on Facebook!
The chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A is unbelievably good for fast food.
Your ignorance can only get you so far. So now fellatio is just a gay thing? How did you get two kids? You must be pretty boring in bed.
Additionally, if you once stepped into a Philadelphia Chickfila and talked with any workers regarding this issue, you'd know that the franchisees, workers and management staff contain gay and straight people from all walks of life, so you're really only punishing them.
You don't get to contribute money to causes which actively seek to harm the lives of individuals, and then hide behind "that's my beliefs!"
I thought this take was pretty good: Chick-Fil-A Followup – Andy Ihnatko's Celestial Waste of Bandwidth (BETA)
Not having a legally-recognized relationship with your life partner can have devastating consequences during a medical emergency, during longterm care, and after death. The law protects spouses and ensures that they have rights in those situations, despite what their partners’ blood relatives might have to say. In many cases, same-sex partners are non-entities in the eyes of the state.
That’s the horrible state of affairs that the COO of Chick-Fil-A wishes to strengthen, extend, and perpetuate. While he and I are debating the subtle points about the definition of the word “family,” people out there are suffering, for real. For same-sex couples, this issue is anything but an abstract problem.
You're really focusing way too much on my sex life, which you know absolutely nothing about. Just sayin'. Can we get back to people's opinions about Chick-fil-A's stance now?

And once again-you are the one who brought up sex and can't quite seem to fathom fellatio as anything other than gay related. Meanwhile? If I saw your brother streaming gay porn at a restaurant? I'd beat the living piss out of him. Not because he loves ButtBongo 3-Fudge Below, but because it could be in view of kids or families and his filth pig actions would be met with a trip to the hospital.
Reading this thread earlier made me hungry as hell. So I headed to Chik-Fil-A for lunch. It was delicious.Originally Posted by alittlelucidity
I'm not saying your issue with them is unimportant, just that I don't care.
Bet it wouldn't take much hunting around to find something horrible about almost every business you deal with or buy products from on a daily basis.
Me? I'm content to patronize those that have things I like and need and don't sweat the politics too much.
Guess I'm evil or lazy.
I also find it interesting that you hate my "outdated blog", yet you've read at least 3 posts. I'm totally counting those page hits.
