I have never eaten at Chic-fil-A and some of the bloggers have raved about the chicken sandwich.
Ergo, my intention is to give it a try. And who
gives a rats butt what the CEO said, as long as
it is not racist in nature and he doesn't put
in the chicken sandwich.

<quoted text>Oh, I am SURE there was plenty of "backfire" as those creaky old geezers returned home after shoving down gobs of fried dough and deep fat fried chicken parts. I would have HATED to have been in some of those cars as the poor old dears began to LET GO!!!!
Maybe for ONCE the stick most of them have up their asses may have blown free by the copious amounts of chicken reeking farts.
actually, Chick Fil A has many healthy items on their menu ..you silly inconsequential immature little gaybot

the backfire came when you azz-blasted the crisco from your poop-shoot in an expression of gaynal disgrace

Did you think to load up on Chick-sil-A and take it to a homeless shelter or inner city school, or maybe take a load over to the local fire station or police station, or did you sit in there and shove it down yourself, never giving a thought to those less fortunate than you are? A true Christian would have shared with the poor.

In my eyes, not one bit and not remotely. I wrote a longer post explaining why; I would doubtless get some sort of flak and I literally *don't have the time*.
I understand various points in the article but to me, the *point* of a boycott is what's being missed. You won't change anyone; you're standing up for an ideal -- so long as you actually do stand up for it.
No matter *what* came of this, the very act of the boycott *itself* was a success, and nothing afterward takes that away. The very point is that you *cannot* take that away. Everything I'm reading about what happened afterward is meaningless, to me. Immaterial.
Not to mention the "health" value of the place in question (the part that makes me laugh out loud).
this makes no sense

no country be came successful because of gay marriage. but rather gay marriage became possible because of there success. if there is say a economic conflation. gay marriage will not survive it.

The churches in this area are just social clubs, you can think for yourselves, read your own Bible, give that ten percent of your check to help someone in need. Getting dressed up on Sunday, showing up at a new fancy church to see your friends and judge everyone. I don't think that is what God defines as church. What would you do if your preacher told you wrong you went to hell and wasted ten percent of your check. God is Love, not Hate. See the truth and quit giving these bogus churches your money, they cannot get you to heaven, they just want to scare you so they can get that ten percent. And yes God does answer my prayers. I use my ten percent to help someone, not pay for a chandler for church.

It's very simple. You should never put human rights up for a vote. It has failed in the past and could probably fail again.. Blacks would still be riding at the back of the bus and women would still be denied the right to vote if it were up to an ignorant, superstitious, deeply prejudiced mob.. IT'S NOT A BEAUTY CONTEST.. And it's being treated as one just for the pleasure of the more despicable part of humanity.. The sane part of America is trying to fight these outrages.. Let it not be said that a great country will end up hanging back with the brutes..
put simply you want a DICTATORSHIP and to do away with voters and democracy? WOW!
