Wendy’s has already come out as pro-homosexual and anti-Christian and anti-American.

Press Relase by ‘Wendy’ herself:

“Wendy’s Spokeswoman ‘Wendy’ Stands With Gay Marriage Supporters

Dublin, Ohio, July 25 2012: Wendy’s corporation found Dave Thomas believed in treating all people, customers, employees, and vendors with the utmost respect. As the woman you see on the sign and in the logo of Wendy’s, it is my belief that Dave would, as I do, support the rights of same-sex couples to marry.

Being ginger, I have faced discrimination my entire life. I’ve been called “firecrotch” and “carrot top”, have endured countless barbs from people such as “you’d better get out of the sun, ginger”, and “they don’t make an SPF high enough for you.” Growing up different from your peers is hard, and when you’re already a cartoon likeness of a human being, to know that you’re a cartoon minority is itself an added struggle.

On behalf of the entire Wendy’s organization, I would like to express our solidarity with all minorities, and our firm commitment to stand beside you as you fight for equality. I would condemn other fast food chains, whether it be their company President or their chicken-hating cows, who would not offer you the same respect.

At Wendy’s, we believe that all loving couples should be afforded the same rights — the right to marry and all the legal protections that accompany the institution. We live in a nation that trumpets freedom and individual rights. It’s time to ensure that we live up to the values we espouse. Besides, I’ve got my eye on that chick from Brave. Rawr!

In addition to her role as corporate mascot, Wendy has been a tireless supporter of minority rights and equality since she was first drawn in 1969.

Who knows what the late Mr. Dave Thomas would have think but he probably would side with Chik Fil A since the founder of Wendy’s is a Christian.

Buycotts work. If you don’t live near a C-F-A and want to be part of the wave you can buy a C-F-A T-shirt or Ball cap!

Regrettably, many of the Wendy’s locations here in Jax have gone completely downhill. Several, in fact, have closed down completely. Expectations of a clean restaurant, friendly service, your order being filled correctly, and feeling safe while you eat are now apparently racist. Dave Thomas must be spinning in his grave.

A large number of the local Burger Kings are suffering from the same problems.

That is a shame. Although when in Jax, I LOVE to go to The Loop!!!! Best Hamburgers ever!!! I wish they would be everywhere. (Sorry off topic). I hope that Wendy’s especially gets their acts together...perhaps find better franchizers or managers.

I never even bothered with chick file a before. I always got the elcheepo sandwich to hold me over till I can’t get a proper meal.

But that chicken sandwich is to die for. You put one on the tops of your head, and your tongue will beat your brains out to get to it. I thick that was a jeff foxworthy joke.

You know, there’s nothing wrong with writing a short note to the manager explaining your point of view.

“I tried to be a new customer for your franchise the other night. xx/xx/12 I was moved to do so, because I wanted to support your CEO against attack in the media.”

“As a new customer, I didn’t know your hours. I drove up shortly after you had closed having driven x miles to get there, only to be waved at and laughed at by your staff.”

“I would like to support your facility, and I will, but I thought you should know what your evening staff was up to.”

“Take care...”

The manager may not have a clue they were doing this. He’ll kick their butts. You may even get some free food out of it, even though that’s not your goal.

MaxMax, take care. Thanks for the mention.
