I might be a former employee, if the incentive is enough.

The gay activists are evil...like the hate filled feminazis they were in a previous political movement when they made the normal interaction of love and fliration of heterosexual men and women illegal in the name of sexual harassment.

Those are the laws we can use against them now!

That they even have to search to find a disgruntled employee of a fast food chain says much more than their eventual report could ever say.

They can talk to any of my three daughters who all got their first jobs in high school at Chick-Fil-A. Every one of them is now a college grad and a productive member of society and every one of them still eats at Chick-Fil-A whenever the opportunity arises. As do we, their parents.

I don't suppose they would be interested in speaking to any of these former employees or their families.

Has CFA refused to hire gays? Refused to serve them? Been rude to them? If not then is non conforming thought sufficient to torment the company?

It's over, this is what it looks like.

* They made gay people reach into the fryers with just their fingers to get the food
* Gay people had to take their breaks in the walk-in freezer IN THEIR UNDERWEAR
* Gay people were chained to their stations and not allowed to make change.

What Newsweek is doing is so far out of bounds that I would think a law suit should be forthcoming.

It is not their job to create the news, which is exactly what they are trying to do.

Just plain crooked.

If Newsweek wants to do something productive with their time, why don't they look for organizations who ACTUALLY DID donate to gay organizations? I thought here in the United States, if we wanted to donate money to ANY organization, we could. Maybe they could really do something productive and find out what organizations from outside the United States, illegally donate money to Obummer’s election campaign in 2007 and 2008.

Life at Chick-Fil-A?

Families came in to eat.
Two men came in together and didn’t go to the bathroom at the same time.
A man kissed his girl at the table.
Men dress like men and women dress like women.

NOT

Two fruits sashay in together and go to the bathroom.
A woman dressed like a man with a woman.
A man dressed like a woman going in the ladies room.

This is Chick-Fil-A, NOT Look-I’m-Gay!!

How are they anti-gay? They oppose gay marriage, but what else? I mean, I think I might be “anti-gay” by some definitions, but I don’t consider myself to be “anti-gay”. Truth be told, compared to most freepers, I am positively libertine on the subject, but I still oppose much of the “gay agenda”. Hmmmmm.

I’m a courier and have no affiliation with Chik-fil-A other than as a customer. The place is packed every lunch hour for ONE reason: the food. It doesn’t hurt that the employees are nice and the place is clean and the service is excellent. Chik-fil-A will lose none of the business they’ve earned, the food is that good (remember, we’re talking about fast food).

I e-mailed.

How can a group claiming diversity, exclude a certain other group?

I thanked him for the publicity, claiming before all this publicity about Chik-Fil-A I had no idea how good their food was. And now I’ll probably eat there every Wed.

That’s what my first post is about. They will make something up, loudly, get caught, and whisper a lame apology about how sorry they are they got caught.

I found the closest Chick-Fil-A today and took my grandson there for lunch. I was astonished at their level of service. Way beyond what I expected from a fast food place. I will go back.

Chick-Fil-A came under criticism this month after a report by the organization Equality Matters revealed that the company donated around $2 million to antigay Christian organizations in 2010.

So? I think businesses that give to pro-homosexual organizations should be outed. Let's see who get's Americas business then.

We need a list of homosexual supporting businesses so we can spread them around the web. Why not? Shouldn't people know who these businesses really are, and their vision of what they want America to be like ??? Queers raping little boys everywhere?

Pose as a gay person and sing rhapsodies about how Chik-Fil-A treats us with dignity and respect.

You know, that quote has me wondering. "The company" donated $2 million? Really? Could it be Cathy (along with other employees) donated $2 million? I don't see any company donating funds from their coffers, but I could be wrong.

Of course the gays are going to lash out, 1% of the population means nothing to me. They can whine all they want, it will do no good. The 99% of the rest of us says go away, you have no say in the matter. If the gay people want to push the issue, then they will have to face the backlash, and it will be ugly.

I never heard of them until this. Now I'm a huge supporter. There's one within driving distance of the grocery store. I didn't even know it was there.

It would be a good idea to start family nights at Chic Fil A. Maybe extended families can use this to get together more often. Maybe all relatives can meet on a certain night. It would strengthen the family that some times gets too busy to see each other.

Oh, and remember to find pro-family organizations to donate to. I'm sure they'd appreciate it. What's happening to Chic Fil A could be used to start a national "Fight Back Aganist the Thought Police" campaign.

"It’s not over, this is part of the beginning"

You're right. But we have been pushed over the cliff. It will get worse, there is no chance it will get better.

Don't wait for the next event that locks us in death's grip. That has passed. This is what (in deference to your precision) the beginning looks like.

It always amazes me to see the reaction of the liberal crowd on issues like this. I have believed for a long time that the most intolerant people are the liberals. If you to not believe in what they believe in, they will scream at you, curse at you enough to make a sailor embarrassed, all at the same time firmly believing that behaving as such will get you to switch to their views.

I always have tried to get the options of both sides so I torture myself by trying to read some of the posts over at DU. I can usually make it between 10-15 minutes before I feel the over whelming urge to take a shower to rid myself of the filth posted there. Even the head of the site, Skinner, cannot post without cussing and trying to berate others. I have even seen a thread started by Skinner with a 2 word title and one was the F-Bomb. That there shows the level of maturity of the far left liberals.

GMTA we thought of that, too. Now don’t go sign an exclusive!

They made me check the chickens to see that the hens all liked roosters and the roosters all liked hens. It was a horrible job, one that left me emotionally scarred.

Look no further than JC Penny. Their stock has tanked after the Ellen hiring and other gay friendly items. So it’s a contrast...and not a good one for JC Penny (CEO let go).

Liberal media types are such jerks. NO ONE SAID CHRISTIANS are perfect. NO ONE but effing liberals. Why don't these two bit media whores get someone on the record saying they're perfect.. then they can do their creepy routine.

Or better yet, get some liberal on record saying he thinks it find for a man to cheat on his wife ... I'd like to see that... I suspect even effing liberals profess on their marriage days they'll be faithful... What's with these liberal media lowlifes? Are they all fourteen year olds?
