That's right, get in line Fatty McFatty and eat more chikin. Just think, 2000 years ago your plump self would have been lining up to gather stones! But alas, we as a society are improving even tho a self proclaimed Christian company closes it's doors once a week...on the wrong day. So chow down and fatten up your belly to spite your brain for once again the South has given itself yet another black eye and plenty of fodder for late night tv. Well done mentally challenged, well done.

Sad wyldmon. Just sad. You miss the entire point. Not surprising.

Oh do share oh wise one...what is the point? Is the point that you're patronizing Chikin's freedom of speach? Is the point that you want to protect financial contracts (marriage) that have a 50% failure rate?

Nationally it's about an even split, with a bias to Chick-fil-a in the south and other conservative states. But in 10 years the chain will be gone - for reasons that will be nothing to do with opinions of homosexuals or marriage.

wyldmon seems to be a typical angry liberal. I am a Christian, a conservative, a vegetarian, and a Constitutionalist. I support Gay rights. I also support freedom of speech. I actually don't believe that our government has any right to legislate marriage - a religious institution. This is properly the purview of the church. God gave us freedoms and our Constitution protects those God-given freedoms. While a gay partnership is not right for me, I cannot make that decision for others. I must defend their right to choose for themselves. I support traditional marriage. I also support civil unions for whoever wants them. And if a minister chooses to "marry" a gay couple, it is the responsibility of church membership to agree or disagree. That being said, wyldmon is a fool (an angry fool) with a very nasty disposition. As a vegetarian, I bought 6 chicken biscuits to give away this morning (from Chick-Fil-a). Before you crucify Chick-fil-a, look at all of the good they do for the communities they build in.

I agree with wyldmon that stuffing our faces with fatty food to show support for a viewpoint is kind of odd if I really think about it. I'm not sure if that was his/her point, but that's what I got from wyldmon. I appreciate KnottaHero's reasonable response. I don't like fast food at all and seeing the physiques of typical fast food patrons kills my appetite. However, Chik-Fil-A has every right to express their views on anything and their customers have a right to show support. I'm curious about the good things they do in communities. Would you give some examples, KnottaHero? I'm not challenging you at all, I always want to know when corporations are community-minded. Thanks!

Andy, the good CFA does includes donating money to christian camps for kids. Knott, if you're a Constitutionalist then you must be aware that this is a secular country...period. You can support traditional marriage and it's 50% divorce rate all you wish, but to deny gay couples the rights to share benefits through work (which is what denying them a marriage license does) is not only wrong but spiteful. Hell, I don't have gay friends or family and know better! I even find what they do to be gross! I mean two guys...eww. So if that makes me the "angry fool", what does that make you...another self righteous hypocrite with an ax to grind against those that love differently than you? Did you pre-screen your chikin biscuit recipients for the "gay gene" before you handed them out?

It's not about people having a right to their opinions or freedom of speech. Gay people are trying to get civil rights. I think it would be like a company saying they're against interracial marriage back in the sixties.

A 50 year old man can marry a 16 year old girl with her parents' consent. Cousins can marry each other. But, two consenting adults in a same-sex relationship can't get married because it's "unnatural". Where's the logic in that?

Right on, Bryseana. It's about civil rights...in a part of the country that is stuck on 1865.

Too bad you never see the support we saw at CFA at local homeless shelters and food banks. Hypocrites. Atheists and Agnostic do it but without the fanfare, because then it's not a selfless act. Watch and learn and don't fear the burn.
