I have a petition to Stop Paulding County Schools from using Chick-Fil-A as a fundraising partner. Please take a look and sign it. I don't care what the person positions of the company or it's owner or everyone else for that matter are. We think it's wrong for our families to indirectly support the known hate groups that Chick-Fil-A's owner donates millions of dollars a year to. This is teaching our students intolerance towards other students and people in our community. Please help us send a message to our school system administrators.
Thank You

I would thank that's their choice. Why not let the individual families choose? If you don't want to support Chick-fil-a, don't donate to the fund. Just donate directly to the school. Simple.

Don't you just wish NAMBLA would open some fresh chicken places?

It's more about the message we're sending our children about tolerance. If people want to eat there then fine... More power to them. When it comes down to our school system supporting the agenda of a known hate group. Well then We feel it crosses the line. There are many more companies that are less controversial to be partners with. Again I have no problem with someone voicing their opinions... This is a free country, but the fact that this company and it's owner actually donate money from their proceeds to a hate group and then our schools are being used in this effort seem a little disgusting.

Family Research Council

From wikipedia:
In February 2010 the Family Research Council's Senior Researcher for Policy Studies, Peter Sprigg, stated on NBC's Hardball that gay behavior should be outlawed and that "criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior" should be enforced.

If you don't agree then don't sign. I'm in no way trying to tell you what you should do. If you feel that same as we do then by all means help out. If not then please refrain from being so confrontational. I'm not trying to offend anyone her. Just asking for a little support. Oh by the way the LGBT community didn't blow this out of proportion it was the media. They wanted to make it sound like the LGBT community want to shut down the free speech of someone by boycotting. The reason the LGBT Community was boycotting was because of the donations to hate groups like the FRC. Sorry to confuse you. have a nice day.

The FRC also stated at one point on their website that gay people should be sterilized killed and or deported. Really not the message to be sending our children.

BTW, I get e-mails from change.org that (sometimes) crack me up. One of the recent ones was regarding a petition to get Target (I think) to not open early for Black Friday (Is Black Friday racist?) sales.

People who hated their neighbors stood in line for a chicken sandwich and on election day people stood in line to vote against that very hate.

So, where is YOUR tolerance for those who ALSO feel free to spend their money the way they see fit? The liberals only see tolerance going one way. The OTHER way.
Why not let the children enjoy being children and stop dragging them into YOUR agenda? Sheesh.

Oh, yes. The LGBT DID make a big deal of it. The kiss in. Remember that? At any rate, why don't you just not support those businesses whom you don't agree with? I don't CARE if gay people have the very same rights that I do. I ALSO don't care if Truet Cathy donates HIS money to the issues he supports. Again, why don't you just make a donation directly to the school? I believe the answer is actually obvious. So, never mind.
