Will Chick-a-fila Open on Sunday?
chick-a-fila

Posted on 04/13/2014 8:52:03 AM PDT by TNoldman

Has Chick-a-fila turned their backs on God by apologizing for their position against same-sex marriage?

yes they have. Even Huckabee looked dumbfounded last evening on his program when he learned Chick-FIL-A was caving in to the gay agenda.

First, it isn’t “Chick-a-fila”.. it’s Chick-fil-A.

And opening Sunday does not equate to turning one’s back on God.

What are you basing this on, anyway?
Did you read something, hear it on the radio.. have a divine vision?

It is a satirical piece stating the La Habra location would open Sunday 24 hours, and close Mon-Fri...

This news was posted here last week and re-affirmed last evening on Huckabee’s Fox show last evening. It is true the CEO Dan Cathy caved. Now I feel vindicated as I was berated for being anti Christian because Dan Cathy wants to be friends with the enemy inviting a gay journalist to a football game and giving in to demands that they stop supporting (to the liberal MSM) anti-gay organizations, and going so far as to offer IRS documents proving they stopped giving to these so-called anti-gay organizations.

In Italy it is indeed “Chick-a-fila”

In Canada it is “Chick-fil-Eh”

And in soviet Russia it is “Fila-a-Chick”

You really got to wonder about what pressure has been given against Chick-fil-a from the current Totalitarian Regime that runs this former republic... Maybe they were going to audit the whole Chick-fil-a company and find something.

When a Company tells the World they respect God so much they will be closed on Sunday and then gives in to radical gay groups for Greed is counter to their basic business tenants. Sorry if this is old news.

I didn’t know Chick-Fil-A had a position on the iminent abolition of true marriage. All the fuss was over Dan Cathy’s opinion wasn’t it?

You are an idiot. They NEVER apologized and I suspect you are just a troll trying to stir the pot.

If Chik were open on Sundays I would eat there because I like the food. The fact that the family (who owns the business) will not allow any store to be open on Sunday is not only well known but is part of the mission statement posted on the wall when you walk in.

Obviously you know nothing about Chik-fil-A or FR

You speak wrongly about Mr. Cathy. Because someone is kind to another human being (inviting them to a football game) does NOT mean that you agree with them or that you have ‘caved’.

Lordy I wouldn’t want to be near you. Mr. Cathy has repeatedly stated what I believe to be the Christian position...that he loves the sinner and hates the sin.

I will give you a real shocker now that may just give you a stroke....Chik-fil-A hires homosexuals and even has homosexual owners.....OMG

get over you self righteous self

So what do you call it when the CEO is catering (yes I also call that caving) to a president of a gay advocacy group to reveal a list of their donors to PROVE to them that they stopped giving to these so-called anti-gay organizations? I call that the same BS we see RINOs like McCain doing to being able to “reach across the aisle” to give a reach around to the gay agenda.

Here is his page.

https://www.facebook.com/mikehuckabee

I searched visually and electronically and there is no mention of the word “chick fil a” or “chick” for that matter in any of the initial loading, let alone “hundreds” of people. Show me my mistake. The link is there and you have a computer.

I posted this last week, let me find it again:

Chick-fil-A’s socially conservative agenda, which formally led the company to donate millions to charitable groups opposed to gay marriage, has been tempered(because of the gay advocacy that put pressure on Chick-FIL-A). This, just as the company aims to expand into Chicago, New York and Los Angeles.

Chick-Fil-A wings in new direction after gay flap

I think you need to read the article you linked once again—slowly and not while making unwarranted assumptions and leaps of the imagination. By the way, Chick-Fil-A serves great food, at good prices by great employees. And, yes, they will even serve homosexual -—oh, no!-— customers who place an order.

But, good news...McDonald’s franchisees love comments such as yours.

I think anybody who wants to divine the truth about any story involving religion needs to start by blacking out the hour Huckleberry’s on TV. Whenever his face appears on the TV in another time slot, one must remind oneself this guy released convicted murderers who have gone on to commit more heinous crimes in his name.

In Presidential campaigns, he has willingly acted as a stalking horse for immoral candidates for the sole purpose of diluting votes from people we liked.

A thoroughly despicable man. Not godly at all, while pretending to be the best of us.

All this fuss over getting a chicken sandwich on a Sunday?

What I want to know is why are most barber shops closed on Monday? How annoying is that. You pull into a typical barber shop on a Monday and those red and white stripes on the barber shop pole are not rotating and the lights are off inside. Now you have to get your haircut on a Tuesday instead. Or even worse, on a Thursday.

Can anybody explain to me why barbers are closed on Mondays? I'm not worried about getting some stupid chicken sandwich on a Sunday at Chick-fil-A. If I want a chicken sandwich on a Sunday, there are dozens of other restaurant options. Or I can go home and make one for myself. But what I can't do on a Monday is give myself my own haircut. Otherwise, I'll look like that guy from the "Dumb and Dumber" movie.

Let's focus on things that actually matter.

I didn't see anything in your link about cutting back on donations - just something about eliminating chicken that've been heavily dosed with anti-biotics and cutting back on corn-syrup in the soda, and the fact that the controversy created a friendship between Dan Cathy and some gay spokesman. Here's the latest quote I can find from Dan Cathy - it was made about a month ago:

"“I think the time of truths and principles are captured and codified in God’s word and I’m just personally committed to that,” he said. “I know others feel very different from that and I respect their opinion and I hope that they would be respectful of mine.”

I don't see any reversal in position or any real issue here. And they continue to make good fast food.

I have read it many times despite what I already surmised. I only ask you to do the same. I already posted the quote that points this out in post #24, but here it is again since it seems to get glossed over:

Chick-fil-A’s socially conservative agenda, which formally led the company to donate millions to charitable groups opposed to gay marriage, has been tempered(because of the gay advocacy that put pressure on Chick-FIL-A). This, just as the company aims to expand into Chicago, New York and Los Angeles.

I can't make this any more clear than this.

If I have to ask you a question it would be this, why did Dan Cathy or Chick-Fil-A feel to need to temper their donations to groups opposed to same sex marriage? It should be a simple answer... they caved!

You are delusional. Mr. Cathy has consistently stated his and his companies position and beliefs. Being kind to someone hardly constitutes catering (in your words). I refuse to live in your world. Being a pharisee does not make you right

I have posted that they have changed who they donate to. To appease the gay advocacy president Shane Windmeyer, Dan Cathy opened his books to show that they no longer give donations to “the worst offenders” (labelled as such by liberal MSM) of anti-gay marriage organizations.

I was in Baltimore on a sunday in 1976 under the blue laws. Thank God the hotel had a cafe.

Barber shops used to close on Sunday. Then in the late 70s I notice some in Sacramento open on Sunday. My wife cuts my hair now, so doesn’t matter to me. BTW when I say hair, it’s singular.

From Sept of 2012

“”There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect,” he said in a statement posted on Huckabee’s website. “Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been.””

And in the same article “multiple news reports pointed out that the memo’s promise to treat everyone the same was basically the same thing the company had claimed in previous statements over the years on Facebook and elsewhere.”

‘Will Chick-a-fila Open on Sunday?”

Whats a “Chick-a-fila”???

The title sounds like the names of people who might manage a Indian owned convenience store.
Chick-a-fila and his cousin from Bombay named Chick-a-Patel.

You are still avoiding my question of if Dan Cathy goes out of his way to no longer support and donate to “the worst offenders” (liberal-speak of MSMs) of anti-gay marriage, what does that tell you? Are you suggesting none of Chick-FIl-A’s donations have changed since 2012? If you believe that then you are wrong as it was mentioned in the link I provided in this thread which you are purposely ignoring.
