People eat fried chicken on biscuits for breakfast at Chick-Fil-A? Now that's just wrong.

Please dont be afraid of things you do not understand.

The only thing better than a nice chicken biscuit is a plate of Chicken and waffles.

My favorite prepared chicken is Costco rotisserie chicken. It's a big bird, lightly season, juicy and only cost $4.98. One breast and a microwave sweet potato is my typical dinner when I'm at work. I can usually get 4 meals from one bird.

McD's has a passable (nowhere near perfect, but hovering nearby) version of the Chick Fil A sandwich.

As a Public Service gesture for my fellow members, I went to McDonalds today to verify this statement.

I can report that McDonalds Southern Style Chick Sandwhich is equal to or better than the Chick-Fil-A. So now there is no need for us Chicken bisucit fans to go without.

*sorry for the blur, I was in a hurry to eat it*



You are welcome.

Thanks to WillyWump for once again going all Aztec, offering his beating heart as a sacrifice to the fat and cholesterol Gods so that we may thrive.

You will be remembered with fond smiles.

McD's does NOT offer nuggets in the same style. But seriously, if chicken nuggets are worth more to you than marriage equality, then I am truly out of arguments.

It's not like we're trying to boycott Gun Oil or anything.

I had a very testy moment with my aunt last week after I drove her home from the dentist about chick Fil A .

She asked me to stop there for a sandwich and when I refused she got really pissed off and told me I could eat elsewhere but she was going to get a meal from there . I'm pretty mild mannered with me older relatives so when I snapped back that I didn't care what she wanted because my car wasn't ever going to grace the parking lot of that dump for any reason it got her attention and she actually apologised and told me if it was that important to me we could go eat anywhere I wanted her treat .

Me too, Jeff.   I agree with Cleve Jones on this.....pissed at CNN too, for their coverage (or lack of).   It's not about the CFO being a bigoted homophobe...it's about C.F.A. making big contributions to organizations that want to HURT us and write discrimination into the Constitution.   I'm going to have to unfriend or block some folks on Facebook over this issue.   This (otherwise) intelligent lady I went to school with keeps posting how she plans to SUPPORT C.F.A., and how "I want to support any company that puts Jesus Christ first".   There is no discussion with people like this, because their minds are frozen in time..... it's that Republican brain atrophy that makes them totally unreasonable, and therefore, not worth a second of my time.

If anyone would like to read the letter the Boston mayor wrote

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/25/thomas-menino-boston-mayor-chick-fil-a-letter_n_1703770.html

So what happens when the mayor of Dallas does the opposite and starts to kick out all businesses with a pro-gay policy? Then add a few more Southern cities to the list and you'll see that a mayor of any city should not mandate what a business owner says in the public domain (free speech issue).

In a way, this story sort of reminds me of the recent controversy here in GA where the KKK wanted to adopt a part of a highway in N GA (like pick up litter and stuff).  They were voted down due to their recognition as a "hate group" and for being "inconsistant with GA values".  Living in the mountains, I can't say that speaks for everyone in GA...not that it would in any state, actually.

I guess it shouldn't surprise me that so many misunderstand the issue about CFA. It's not what the CEO said it's what the company does. The company actively contributes to organizations that actively campaign FOR discrimination against gays.

than again, look at all the gays that tithe to churches that preach against homosexuality. If we can't get our "own" people to understand, it's no wonder the wider world doesn't get it either.  ::)

I had two family members post on FB today that they "like" Chick-fil-A.  These are the same two I've posted about before, for saying they are against marriage equality.  It has caused a huge fracture in our relationship.  When I say family, they are my partner's brother and his wife.  We remained cordial at family events.  We kept hoping they would come around.

Both rarely post on FB.  I'm no longer friends on FB with the wife, but didn't delete his brother.  So, they both went out of their way to make a post in support of Chick.  I would have thought with our already fractured relationship, they would have left this alone.  To us, it feels like they are twisting the knife.  Man, I just hate this issue divides us.  It isn't like differences on tax policy or even war policy.  This is an assault on who were are.  Given that they are taking public stands and not just private views, I just can't imagine even being cordial at this point.  The insensitivity is what really burns me.  They both could have let this go and not made public comments--mocking those of us who see this as an attack, with their friends making comments about the "gay agenda."  It feels like the final straw to us.

Chick-fil-A Alienating Customers With Stance on Same-Sex Marriage

(the mountain has come to Mohammed...   )

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/the-crimson-white/chuck-fil-a-gay-marriage-_b_1717641.html

excerpt...

"But with a great deal of attention being placed on social issues this election year, many companies are taking a clear stance on diversity and acceptance in their corporate atmosphere. Google recently launched a new worldwide campaign to legalize and recognize same-sex marriage called "Legalize Love."

Google joins JC Penney, Kraft Foods and Starbucks for having all recently faced criticism and threats of boycotts from far-right groups for their support of equality and acceptance inside and outside the workplace."

"But with numerous polls showing Americans becoming significantly more supportive of marriage equality, these boycott attempts and calls for a recant of support gain almost no traction and look increasingly foolish.

While I don't dispute that corporations, like individuals, certainly have a right to freely support any ideology or issue, it seems to be a bad business model to willingly alienate a large faction of consumers.

Chick-fil-A's job should be to make delicious chicken sandwiches, not serve as a surrogate for one of the nation's most divisive issues. In a day where it seems everything is politicized, I'd like to think that my Spicy Deluxe combo and lemonade could offer a shred of normalcy -- not a channel for intolerance.

Cathy's comments haven't stopped me from ever eating at Chick-fil-A again, but I have lost confidence and respect in an organization that claims to be based on following and emulating a loving and accepting God.

Chick-fil-A executives should display the same amount of respect for customers that they expect out of their employees, easily creating raving fans of all backgrounds."

Sort of a mute point as there are no Chik-fil A's in the UK

The lines at Chick are very long here today.  Rush, Fox, and churches have a lot of sway to get people to stand in line so long.  I doubt you could get them to stand in line that long to save puppies from the gas chamber.

There is a Chick-Fil-A in the same shopping center as my gym. It appeared busy today but they are always busy and frequently have a line of cars stretching into the adjacent parking lot. BTW, for lunch today we went to a local Greek restaurant and had chicken souvlaki and salad, which was about the same price as Chick-Fil-A but healthier and tastier.

Miss P had General Tso's chicken (paging Wumpy) and not only that, I had it after picking up HIV meds and in the Gayborhood where even the city street signs have rainblow logos. For extra credit there is actually a Planned Parenthood across the street.

 We had a few protesters for Marriage Equality, at one of our Chick-Fil-A's but mostly they just went for the FREE FOOD & DRINK they were giving out today, there  some were arrested  for trespassing, & interfering w/ business    ;D

I'm under siege here today . While I was at AMG some of my family was very busy on FB posting away in support of C. F . I figured freedom of speech deserved freedom to reply so I posted some things of my own . One thing I posted was in response to my slightly effeminate 27 year old cousins support for C.F was to feign surprise and say we always thought you were gay . The boy is 27 and NEVER has been on a date . My mom called and is furious with me but I kept my cool and told her its not like I'm hurling insults at the guy , after all haven't we been giggling behind his back about it for years . It sums up allot about ones family when they think suggesting someone might be gay is a slur .   

I am not deliberately trying to start shit within my own family but some things are important to me and I will not remain silent . I'm not upset about this because its enough to know I'm right and I don't need an affirmation from any of my family to make it so .
