I don't know too many companies that suddenly lose 23% of their business, and it not hurt. A smart company, would keep politics, and religion completely out of their business......if not.......be prepared to pay the price.
How many more people WILL eat there now? Did you even consider that?

BTW, I buy from starbucks, Ben and Jerry's, Apple.. I dont GAFF what they do with their money.

You libs are all about destroying anything and everything that may have a different view. You are very destructive, hostile people.

BTW, congrats on not using the word 'Bush'.

You see it that way because it conflicts with your hate agenda.
So, freedom of speech has no limitations or restriction? I wonder what I can get away with while telling my boss off... or the president... When does it become harassment or a threat?

The only one with a hate agenda are you libs who can't respect OR tolerate ANYONE who doesn't agree with your beliefs. You try to shut them down, vandalize their stuff, demean them and sometimes hard them.

to answer the prime question.....


WTF CARES??? really now?? this even a serious question??



You know what the comic is?? I don't like chicken particularly, given choice it's beef/pork/deer/game every time.....WIFE however likes chicken so I'm learning to squawk .......so maybe we will seek out a Chick A Fil down the street maybe tmrw....

Panera bread, got one on the silly side of the street here, impossible to get in/out of there without wasting a gallon of gas....so we have never been there, bread is a convenience item in the grocery store, it's either 'raw' or toast, comes in 3 colors, white/yellow/brown.....takes your choice, I eat anything, but prefer wheat/brown.....wife prefers white library paste.....

Some Vette related friends and me setting around Wed AM and talking and this came up, we just laughing out asses off, they all my age group, 68, working stiffs and you can imagine what was said.....and the guy who's driveway we setting in, his burb is heavy with gay types, I found that strange because the issue has NEVER been raised in the 15 years I been here, and sure enough, wife substantiated it, she being a native to Jax Fl......I"m an import....and never had a reason to 'track' such things.....

Considering the bad press the vandals and the nutbars are getting, the backlash against the gay community is going to grow

This never should have been a story in the first place. I happen to have a completely different viewpoint on the subject of gay marriage than the CEO (I support civil unions and think the Christian obsession with homos is ridiculous), but his comments were not anti-gay. At least not enough to cause an uproar over. This story was a huge backfire against gays.

I think the whole episode is sort of laughable, but I am hoping for a bit of anti-Obama political fallout.
Hate to break it to you, but Christians do not have an obsession with homosexuals. Truth is the subject is rarely brought up. Not too many homosexuals coming to the Church Spring picnic you know.

The whole "Christians are obsessed with gays" is just a stereotype created by the gay community to portray themselves as victims and win the sympathy vote. It's basically an Alinski technique in creating an enemy/oppressor to further their political agenda. Which is really how this whole thing started. The support of Chick Fil A is just a backlash against a bully agenda.

So, is it your contention that gay operatives have infiltrated this site to pose as conservative Christians and yap constantly about gays?

If conservatives "hate and fear" gays, then liberals "hate and fear" getting a job, working for a living, being judged on merit and accepting their own successes or failures.

I have no idea how you came to that conclusion from my post, and I doubt anyone else could explain it either.

Hate? Disagreement with someone is 'hate'? We could just as easily label you a pedophile. Proof? Who needs proof?
