Chick-Fil-A should donate all proceeds from Friday's sales to their favorite family focused charity. Wouldn't it be great if they did this and made the announcement tomorrow. bet that would discourage the other side from attending on Friday!

Stop giving away other people’s money. That’s a liberal idea/value.

They should keep every damn penny they earned and pay their routine taxes. That’ll be a far better contribution to American society than making them give it up.

Since when do liberal companies give up their profits to “charities”?

Why don't you concentrate on what to do with YOUR money instead of what others should do with theirs?

You a libtard or sumthin?

The Cathy family has a foundation that runs half a dozen different organizations . I don’t remember them all, but they include a foster child program, and a camp program and, I think, some kind of educational program.

From what I’ve seen today, while their sales may be very high, the profit margin may not be as high. They had to bring in extra staff, are going through a lot more inventory, and at least in the one close to my office, were renting tents and such to help workers outside keep the line moving. They were also giving away drinks to people waiting in line- eating into the profit.

I think your sentiments are well-intentioned. But I must agree with the others — CFA is a business, and the point of a business is to make a profit. If a bunch of politically-correct queers want to help CFA make a profit, I say let ‘em.

Are you going to donate your Friday pay to a charity of your choice? That would be pretty generous of you.

hey fellow freepers....you’re missing the point of the thread.

if the kiss in crowd that is planning on showing up on friday knows the procedes from friday sales will go to chick-fil-a’s favorite family charity maybe they won’t go there!

i’m very pro-chick-fil-a and i agree they can do whatever they want with their money. think we have a misunderstanding here.

my apologies for the confusion.

What are you talking about? They have a business, they pay taxes, in essence giving back to the community. They have payroll to make. Let them do what THEY want with their profits. None of any ones damn business how their profits are spent. And, I’m a business owner.

Absolutely not. They should reward their stockholders with a big “See what you get when you don’t let the liberal whackos win?” dividend check.

Baloney. I went there to enrich them!! This is free enterprise. Let obama print some more money and give it your cause. The costumers don’t want any money to go to charity. They can pick out their own charity. I pray that the “other side” is requested to leave and is arrested for lewd and lascivious conduct (which of course they will do) and trespass which is available if they set foot on the property after bad conduct!!! Like today. police will be every where so bring on the abomination to God.

You can’t appease libtards by tossing money their way (or any way)...

You have a disconnect usually associated with sleeper cells.

Damned EVIL RICH people. They should be ashamed to make money and create jobs.

I hope Proud Yank isn’t up there in Alaska raping the land and making lots of money, that would just be EVIL.

BullCow Shiite!


Chikin Shiite!!...<:

Saw that headline and thought we may have an interloper.

Love the way ‘these’ people like to spend other peoples money.

Of course the real thanks should go to those young people who were hit in the butt with a crowd and from all reports, stood up to the challenge with professionalism and politeness, which, of course, is what they are supposed to do. My Granddaughter worked for them in Jr and Sr year of HS. Apparently enough of me ‘rubbed off’ on my daughter and SIL as when cars etc come into the picture, start up help is given but it is up to the kids to maintain, tag and insure.
The very things my daughters ‘hated’ me for....hmmmm

This is what a ‘start up’ job is supposed to do, build character and prepare one for the real ups and downs that life will thrust upon them.

If Chickfila WANTS to then they can do whatever they want with THEIR money. Don’t they already give 10% of their revenues?

Just my personal opinion, but the so-called non-profits should try to be self sustainable and not expect handouts. It is not popular to say this, but there is a lot of waste in these non-profits (beggars) who use pity and feed on emotions, rather than ingenuity and entrepreneurship.

Chickfila is privately owned, so no stockholders or dividends. They could, however, reward their president by giving him bonus and publicly announcing it, thus driving liberals nuts.

I know for a fact all the liberal RICH people don’t give money to their causes. How dare CFA get richer on the backs of the poor disaadvantaged, disenfranchized gays.

Have you noticed the gays, in their protests, can’t just have a protest, they have to have an in-your-face let’s kiss and make out in public in front of kids event. That is what is pissing people off, I don’t care what they do in bed (private), but their “In your face, you WILL accept and embrace my lifestyle” BS is getting old.

“...eating into the profit.”

Lots of good observations. But I’m sure their profits will STILL be WAY higher than normal.

Although I think that Mr. Cathy, and it sounds like most of the franchise owners are like-minded, are probably not so concerned about the profits they are making today as they are about the statement that so many Americans are making today.

And I did see the post where the OP says to donate FRIDAY’s profits (as a way to mess with the protestor’s heads). Although I’m not sure how much, if any, the kissing protestors will actually be buying.
