I think I have been to Chick-fil-A one time years ago.... but obviously won't be going there again.....  Not that any of the information below was a surprise.... just confirmation.....

It's Official: Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy Comes Out as Antigay

"We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. ... We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."

The company has reported millions of dollars in donations to antigay groups including the Family Research Council and the Marriage and Family Foundation. Because of Chick-fil-A's ties to antigay organizations and causes, many LGBT people and allies are boycotting the restaurants, and plans to open a restaurant on the Northeastern University campus were quashed.

(FYI: According to Equality Matters' analysis of the restaurant's donations, its contributions of nearly $2 million is more than the group has given in any other year "for which public records are available." These contributions compound the estimated $5 million in donations Chick-Fil-A made to anti-gay groups between 2003 and 2010.)

Speaking of Chic fil- a...  Just heard this on the news: they made a goof in print, it's Henson , not Henderson

The Muppets cut ties with Chick-Fil-A restaurant after president's anti-gay marriage comments

    The Jim Henderson Company, which is behind the Muppets, have said they will never work with Chick-Fil-A again
    Fast food chain Chick-fil-A issued a statement in response to the widespread criticism of the company president Dan Cathy's anti-gay comments
    Cathy had previously said that the company is only supportive of heterosexual family values
    The company donated more than $3m between 2003 and 2009 to Christian organisations with anti-gay agendas

By Alex Ward and Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 12:24 EST, 23 July 2012 | UPDATED: 14:23 EST, 23 July 2012

   

The entertainment company behind The Muppets has cut ties with restaurant Chick-Fil-A after the fast-food chain’s CEO revealed his anti-gay marriage stance.

The Jim Henderson Company had partnered with the eatery to provide toys in their kid’s meals from mid July until August 18.

However, following Chick-Fil-A’s president Dan Cathy's comments last week that his company supported families headed by heterosexual couples only, The Jim Henderson Company said they would never work with the fast food giant again.

Muppets: The Jim Henderson Company, which is behind the beloved TV show The Muppets, have cut ties with Chick-Fil-A after the chain's president Dan Cathy, left, revealed his anti-gay marriage stance

The Jim Henderson Company, which is also behind popular shows such as Fraggle Rock and Labyrinth, posted that their were severing their ties with the restaurant on their Facebook page on Friday.
 


The company also said they would be dedicating their payment from Chick-Fil-A to the charity Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination.

Their full post, reported on the Huffington Post, read: 'The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors.

'Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD.'

'Going forward': The Atlanta-based fast food chain released a statement on Facebook saying they will 'leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena'

This is the latest in a huge backlash to comments made by the multimillion dollar empire’s president Dan Cathy when he said his company is ‘very much supportive of the family,’ but only when it involves heterosexual couples in an interview with the conservative newspaper Baptist Press.

As well as customer backlash, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has vowed to block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in the city.

To appease disgruntled consumers Chick-fil-A issued a statement via the company's Facebook page on Thursday saying their restaurants ‘treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender’.

The statement continued: ‘Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.’

More than 13,000 comments were posted on the company's Facebook page in response to the statement.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Mr Cathy he previously said: ‘We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives.’
Contradictory: Mr Cathy's backing of 'traditional' families as husband and wife is a far cry from the ensuing statement from Chick-fil-A

The Atlanta-based business currently has 1,608 locations and boasts sales of more than $4billion.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Chick-fil-A workers are trained ‘to focus on values rooted in the Bible,’ and the eateries nationwide are closed on Sundays.

Mr Cathy said: ‘We don’t claim to be a Christian business.

‘Companies are not lost or saved, but certainly individuals are but as an organisation we can operate on biblical principles.’

In response to Chick-fil-A's Facebook statement there was a range of criticism and support for the company's position.

One user posted: 'I believe that anytime a person or a business uses their time and money to ensure that someone does not have an ability or a right they are not acting with grace, only with selfish intent and fear.'

Another posted: 'You can stop eating there if you want but I don't think he should have to change his values and beliefs.

'You want you rights to be "gay" but you want to take our right to believe what we want from us?'

On Twitter user posted: ‘I shall not ever eat at chick-a-fil-a again.’

The company, founded in 1946 by Cathy’s father, S. Truett Cathy, has also come under fire for donating more than $3million between 2003 and 2009 to Christian organisations with a well-known anti-gay agenda, among them the Marriage & Family Foundation and the Family Research Council.

According to a report from LGBT advocacy group Equality Matters, in 2010 alone Chick-fil-A gave nearly $2million to such causes.

I find it humorous that you object to people exercising their right to free speech by boycotting a business. But hey, go ahead and defend homophobia... it's not like you're gay in the first place.

And there's the rub. 

As much as Mojo would like to believe that he'd never react in such a way he was describing, I'm quite certain that is not the case as it would be going against human nature and how we're programmed to react when we encounter something that gets our dander up.

 One lesson that I learned long ago, was to not allow what someone else has to say affect me negatively. Life is way to short for that kind of stress.

So we know what you're not.

You're probably not a racist, either.

Most of us here agree that Chik-Fil-A have a right to be douchebags. That's really not the issue. The issue is do you agree with their particular brand of anti-ghey hatred?

Enquiring minds want to know.

For the record, I think their Christian chicken is delicious and the service of their shiny, happy employees absolutely Stepford-- grandma comes by with free ice cream and if you are not served immediately the manager begs you to take a coupon for a free sandwich. Law enforcement eats free, so you pretty much have police protection at all times. Unfortunately, as any fan of sci-fi knows, there is always unspeakable evil lurking just behind the too perfect community: human sacrifice, pod people, homicidal robots. So I am sadden but not surprised the owners of Chik-Fil-A don monk robes, retreat to their underground sanctum and, with Pat Boone records playing softly in the background, pray to The Unnamed God for a pox on gay people.

Oh, how I will miss the grilled spicy chicken wrap.

Indeed.  The same part that tells us these are the ends days - and you'll know them when people start shacking up in stead of marrying and listening to the rantings of lesbians and vegetarians.

Alright, Alright! I can't deal with the Guilt any longer! I ate at Chik-Fil-a today. I blew a hose on the Benz and had to stop at a Goodyear, and the only thing in walking distance was aChik-Fil-A.

Had a #5 Meal with sweet Tea. They have amazing Buffalo dipping sauce.

I am sorry. If it's any consolation I did give the manager a stank look.

You can commence with the Tomato throwing now.

Alright, Alright! I can't deal with the Guilt any longer! I ate at Chik-Fil-a today.

So we know what you're not.

You're probably not a racist, either.

Most of us here agree that Chik-Fil-A have a right to be douchebags. That's really not the issue. The issue is do you agree with their particular brand of anti-ghey hatred?

Enquiring minds want to know.

MtD
I do not agree with any brand of hatred. I am only aware of the CEO of the place standing against same sex marriage. That does not always equate to hate. But, as I said, I am unaware of any other actions by this company. I do not eat there, therefore do not follow its politics....Same goes for McDonalds, Burger King and several other establishments that I do not use.
 One has a right to disagree or even hate.... As long as you do not infringe on anothers rights. I don't worry about the haters, cause most of them are looking for something or someone to hate..In this country first it was women, then black people, now it is people who are gay.  Let them hate, thats what they do.. the best counterfeite to hate is to live you life as if they do not exist...that pisses them off.

So, your advice is to simply keep quite and ignore Chick-Fil-A.  Brilliant!

Fuck that shit.  There are times where you need to speak up and / or take action.  It's all too easy to just turn a blind eye.  That is how discrimination is perpetuated.

Ah.

You know, we're really very different people.

I'm rather partial to hatred. Those who would call me faggot and subhuman?

I hate them. :)

Not only do I hate them but I look forward to the day when I and my kind will rise up righteous and wipe the earth of such filth. 

Hatred, properly based and appropriately focussed, purifies and makes the oppressed free.

It cleanses and liberates.

We don't ask for our rights, we demand them. When our demands are denied, we simply take our rights.

We don't think twice.

And once we've cleansed the world of the christian, the bigot, the conservative and the enabler: then we'll turn our attentions to you.

Because whilst the road to Hell may be paved with good intentions, the road to freedom is paved with the skulls of people like you.

It's seriously sad how these Southern queers live so hard for fried chicken.

Two quick things

McD's has a passable (nowhere near perfect, but hovering nearby) version of the Chick Fil A sandwich. Once a month and a half maybe I eat one.

Also, there is quite a bit of difference between a CEO coming out in a personal stance against equality and making certain his company donates millions of dollars to prevent aforementioned equality.

One is an act of free expression.

The other an attack on my rights as a person.

I forget who said (and I am too lazy to google it) but one man's freedom to swing his fist ends where my nose begins.

I definitely interpret the actions of that odious man as a swinging fist that directly impacts my nose.

Had I millions of dollars, then I could play tit-for-tat. Having misplaced those millions, I will boycott and ask others to do the same, making as much noise as I feel I should, when indeed other pressing matters are not in the forefront.

I do not find that grassroots-style activism inappropriate at all.

By the way, if you can make it out, this is the sign on the window of Chick Fil-A regarding the muppets issue:

http://i.huffpost.com/gen/699985/thumbs/o-CHICK-FIL-A-SIGN-570.jpg?4

It says in part (it's rather hard to read)

"Chick-fil-A is initiating a voluntary withdrawal for our Jim Henson Creature Shop Puppet Kid's Meal Premiums due to a product issue (even though all puppets passed safety testing requirements).
In lieu of the kid's meal premium we will offer a Kid's Icedream."

So they'd rather fatten kids up than admit to philosophical differences. You'd think if they were indeed PROUD of their stance, they would say so right there. The fact that they continue to skulk behind the scenes and do evil while hiding that fact from their public tells me that they know very well how unpopular their stance really appears.



"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

They oppose same-sex marriage, so what!!!!!!!
Says the man who doesn't want to marry someone of the same sex.  The "so what" is this -- they give lots of money to groups that spend this money working hard to stop states from allowing same sex marriage. 

So what you say??  If I die tomorrow, my partner of 22 years could lose everything we've built together because the state of Virginia doesn't recognize us as family.  Despite the money we've spent to create every conceivable legal document that expresses our view -- a judge in VA could simply invalidate them and give everything to a "real family member".  And there are PLENTY of judges in this state who would be willing to do just that.

So what you say??  How would you feel if your ability to "marry" the person you wanted was put up to a vote where deep pocketed people and corps (like Chik-Fil-A) are able to persuade folks to vote in the manner THEY think they should.

I will be marrying my partner on Sept 1st, in Massachusetts -- it won't, legally, mean shit where we live, but it will make a statement -- to ourselves and to the rest of the world (or our little piece of it). 
So -- FUCK your "So what??"  Free speech is one thing, working hard and spending money to limit the rights of others is never a "so what" -- except to those who aren't impacted by it.

And oh yeah...Mojo:  Sally Ride's partner of 27 years, for example, won't get shit in benefits now that Sally is deceased because their relationship isn't recognized.

His "opinion" is not the real problem -- it's his ability to spend millions spreading his opinion.
The fact that you are so cavalier about other people's rights is, simply, appalling.  If you can't get what you said was wrong and just find a way to excuse or minimize it, there is no reason to have a dialogue with you.

I was about to say careful or you'll find yourself subjected to the same affirmative defensive that I was but I see the tune changed before I could even type this  ::)

One lesson that I learned long ago, was to not allow what someone else has to say affect me negatively. Life is way to short for that kind of stress.

perhaps you should keep abreast (see what I did there? LOL) of the news articles about CFA before posting. The company itself donates to designated hate groups. This isn't about the CEO but about the company. The CEO is just the asshate mouth piece of the company's policy of hate.

It says tthat they are withdrawing the puppets because kids fingers are getting stuck in the holes. ROFLMAOwut!? It's a puppet. Couldn't they think of a better bogus reason? So not only are they Homophobes, but they are uncreative Homophobes.
