No one cares anymore! Sick of hearing about chick Fil a. When someone supports our troops, or something else that MATTERS, let me know.

Did people seriously not have anything better to do with their time than sit in line at a fast food joint for an hour just to prove whatever point they thought they were making?

Yes. A sad story of a starving group of people all gathering to spread the hate as thick as the mayonnaise on a filet O fish sandwich. At a movie theatre soon.

Chic Fil A just needs to take their message of hate somewhere else i think its a media stunt but why attack people who don't bother you?!?! I get that not everyone supports gay but that doesn't mean you have to line up at a restaraunt claiming "i love chic fil a cuz you hate the "F*gs" its not something constructive like go to a restaraunt to support our troops or to try and cure world hunger or something. This restaraunt makes me sick with their comments!!

It wasn't about hate. It was about A christian restaurant standing by their beliefs and not caving just to please people like every other place. Its not like they say gays aren't allowed to work or eat there ..that would be hate. Gays can show their pride wherever they want but if anyone else does it its such a problem. How dis all of this get started ..did chick fil a just decide to protest one day or did a bunch of gays get mad first and then chick fil a started to stand by what they believe. Face the facts most places only say they support it so they don't stir up drama because look at what has happened. Gays can stick together but when the christians do its a big problem. Not everyone is going to agree with what you stand for, that's life. Everyone should be able to stand by what they believe ..there sure are enough gay pride fests.

no the problem with them is they did say not only do they stand by their christian values which is fine and dandy but they have said that they do not want to serve anyone of an orientation which is not backed by the christian values meaning a gay/lesbian/bi/transgender nor do they want someone who does not represent those values to work for them...thats one main reason why it stirred up controversy. They can stand for their beliefs by all means by being a christian or whatever religion they please my problem with it is the above which is similar to the civil rights movement when many restaraunts came out(via sign or what have you) saying that a race was not allowed because they believed it to be wrong. Just saying a lot of similarities. I don't have a problem with their christian beliefs nor anyone else's i just think that they should appreciate everyone's beliefs whether its a religious standpoint a matter of politics, sexual orientation, race...whatever. One way or another it'll all go back to the same thing...pregidice in some way for a belief. That's why this stuff is meant to be on hush bc its controversial, but when you boil it down Civil rights(whether its for race or orientation), Politics and Religion will always be controversial..unfortunately in the south Church and state are not seperated like its meant to be that's where things get blurry and well we wont go into it.

Maybe the gays could start their own chain of restaurants.
Gay men could have the "Dog n Bun"
Gay woman could have "Licks"

Why is it a message of hate? The man simply stated that he supported what the bible defined as marriage. This is not hate, but you like to use that word because you think it helps your arguement. Also, explain to me, how he "attacked" anyone. The gays are the ones that got aggressive and "attacked" him and his business by calling for a boycot. Chick-fil-a didn't organize the response to this attack, people just felt the need to show the gay community that enough is enough.

Just like Jerry Falwell did. He didn't spread hate. Nooooo. Not at all. If there is a heaven and hell, ol Jerry's cooking up rather nicely.

These "so called" christians interpret the bible like a winger does the constitution. Cherry picking to make their case. Ignoring when it doesn't.

Geeze. How uneducated can some people get. Has anyone actually bothered to research the actual comments that Dan Cathy made?

Cathy was asked if he supported the traditional family - he said, "Guilty as charged."

The media took this and claimed he made a comment about gay marriage.

They then went to a different article that he was cited in that was from June, a month prior to the interview in question, where he does talk about homosexual marriage.

The fact that you are not doing the research on your own is alarming.

But instead, this was said: "no the problem with them is they did say not only do they stand by their christian values which is fine and dandy but they have said that they do not want to serve anyone of an orientation which is not backed by the christian values meaning a gay/lesbian/bi/transgender nor do they want someone who does not represent those values to work for them...thats one main reason why it stirred up controversy."

By all means, find me that quote! That is ridiculous and you are a liar. Nothing of that type was ever even hinted at. You're full of crap and the reason that Chick-Fil-A has caused so much headline news. You took one thing they said, didn't bother to do the research, and have placed words in their mouth. So when you complain that they are getting business, blame yourself.

There is nothing hateful about someone saying simply they support the traditional concept of man/woman marriage. It has been a mainstay of civilization for six thousand years. The extremists are basically saying that six thousand years of human history has been hateful. It's absurd.
What would have happened if they said they supported same race marriage, which, if I remember correctly WAS regarded as "traditional marriage" and was still being largely fought for well into the 60's.

In that case, he's not only against gay marriage but also biracial marriage and is in favor of not only marriage between a man and a woman but marriage between a rapist and his victim, marriage between one man and many wives, and marriage between an adult and a 12 year old.

The people who made a big show of hogging down greasy fast food that day won't even come close to the number of people who,silently and without a rally,simply will choose never to set foot in chic-fil-a again.

Hope it was worth it because in the long run the bottom line will show a lose of business.yes haters and intolerate people have a right to their opinion but for the life of me I can't see what business it is of yours who someone else has a relationship with. Love is love.

And as I've said before----JESUS UTTERED NOT ONE WORD AGAINST HOMOSEXUALITY.
