Why is everyone bashing on chic fila?

The owner never bashed gay marriage nor did he bring it up. He was asked a question and he answered politely. Now cities are banning him from opening stores there. Liberals are the discriminating ones. This country Is making me sad

I agree with you on this one. He answered honestly and he's allowed to have his own opinion on it. I've seen pictures of these stores vandalized and everything. It's ridiculous. I guess in the end, Chic-Fil-A won anyways. I never heard of them before this. Now, everyone in the country has heard of them.

Sad isn't the word It's become pathetic it's like walking into a bar and asking the owner if he thinks selling beer to hard working men and women is his right. Then trying to slander his buisness because he answered exactly how you expected him to.

Dont you know its only a free country when it benefits those that feel they arent getting a fair shake.

I love how its horrible for him to say he believes a marriage is between a man and a woman. But its ok to say you believe it can be between whoever.

Just a quick heads up to those that believe a marriage is between anything other than a man and woman...

YOU JUST KILLED THE HUMAN RACE...

Steve + John = who carries the baby
Jen + Jessica = sperm anyone....

Because babies aren't born out of wedlock and it's the duty of every married couple to procreate?

I don't think population will be an issue for a while. Traffic is bad enough as it is

Haha, I love that.

Everyone's entitled to their opinion.

Just gotta feel sorry for the gay cashiers who have to sit there and listen to someone who goes on a "I'm glad this place hates the gays" rant and the straight ones that have to listen to a "I'm never eating here again because this place hates the gays".

No one wins in this, it's pointless for both sides.

Chick-fil-a is awesome, however It's sad that this country has people who care more about what the owner said then all the people who were killed at the Colorado shooting, and the people who care so much about animal abuse and anti fighting dogs but you can watch two guys beat each others ass on tv. This country has become soooooo politically correct it makes me sick.

That's society.. **** happens then move on to the next attention getter... look how many people slow for accidents. Were a society that would rather record someone getting assaulted rather than help them. Look how fast Starbucks and those mayors were like we support you.. don't want to offend anyone...

I could care less what people did so why doesn't your complaint carry weight towards people who believe the other way. Why are so many bashing the CEO for his beliefs and it's ok but if you bash on a "minority group" it's not right...

Gays can cry foul on straight people who don't believe they are right but if you cry foul iron disagree with them then let's protest. Grow the **** up. No matter what decision you make you must live with the consequences. Absolutely EVERYTHING.

This is what it comes down to. Does he have the right to his own belief? Yes. But as a CEO, when he made his statement it was made as if it was the view of the company...not him. Now whether or not he meant it that way is here nor there. The fact is when you are in that position, he should have not answered b/c it had nothing to do with Chick fila and there was no way that any good could have come out of it. And I don't know about where you guys live but down here the "holyer than tho Christians" are what really made it a big deal, escalating it....getting on the news and talking about people like they are the scum of the world. But coming from a professional viewpoint, he was in the wrong for his own ignorance of answering that question by the media knowing what it would turn into. Its the media, controversy sells.

I really don't see what the big deal is. It's proven that gays only like seafood and beef anyways.

Hopefully y'all realize I am making a joke. Anyone that knows about Chic-fil-a should realize they are run by very devout Christians. I mean did anyone not notice they are closed on Sundays?! So are you really surprised that the CEO believes in the definition of marriage as a man and a woman?

I wish we could all have the opinion of "WHO GIVES A F&@K?!" Don't we have much more important issues to worry about?!

If some gays wanna get married, fine good for them. If they can get a priest to marry them in a church, hooray. If a church refuses to marry them, that should be fine too....go to a courthouse. Let the gays join in the misery we all get to experience!

You sir, are the type of person ruining this country. We have the right to have an opinion, even if it's conservative. I hate when it's ok to have a liberal opinion but a conservative one is not ok. That's discrimination.

Yeah, I had never heard of Chick-Fil-A before I moved to Charlotte and I have to say:

Best. Fastfood. Ever.

Seriously, great food (they have the greatest breakfast burrito ever), always clean, always the quick, friendly staff at any one I've been to, just a good chain.




EDIT: Bojangles can go f*ck itself.

Wow, you either didn't read my post well or you are ignorant. Did I ever say that it was not ok to have a opinion?????? Nope I didn't. What I said is that when you are a professional representing a company not yourself then you have to watch what you say. When he was up there as far as the media was concerned his words were the voice of the company, and since I know they have gay employees that is not the case and actually degrades them. So please rethink your comment and get your foot out your mouth. What I do have a problem with is people that are "Christian" that badmouth these peoples preferences even though the bible says don't judge others and that a sin is a sin, but they somehow forget that b/c like I said they are holyer than though. But deluzer, if you ever get in a position of a leader than you will understand what I meant. You have to put your followers ahead of your own agenda. His comment has put a bad image on the company that he was supposed to lead. I highly doubt his view was the view of the whole company therefore he should have kept it to himself. B/c if you actually looked into that, he was questioned b/c his company is one of few that are supposed to be family and religious oriented ie closing on Sundays. So stop being narrow minded and read what I wrote again and than maybe just maybe you might understand what a Leader is supposed to do. Hey isn't that the problem we have now, we have a gov't that is doing what it want to do even though it goes against what the general public wants even though its supposed to serve us? Servant Leadership...google it

And if he wanted to voice his opinion why keeping it along the lines of what Christianity really is he would of said something along the lines of " I personally do not agree with it, but everyone has the right to be happy and I will not judge someone for doing something that makes them happy as long as it is legal. " B/c after all it is God's job to judge the actions of others, not us. Or he could of been smart and just said "I'm not sure why this has anything to do with the company as a business so I'd prefer to keep my personal opinions personal". He can think whatever he wants, but imo he was ignorant for getting obviously baited into something like this.
