[OFFICIAL CHARGES OF DISCRIMINATION FILED BY GAY RIGHTS REPRESENTATION AGAINST CHICK FIL A - IL]
The Civil Rights Agenda, a local LGBT rights advocacy group, filed multiple complaints with the Illinois Department of Human Rights Thursday, alleging that the Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A restaurant chains intolerant corporate culture violates Illinois law and a provision in the states Human Rights Act.
In our current high speed media and social media environment, Chick-fil-A has announced and caused to be published, to hundreds of millions of people, that LGBT people are unacceptable and objectionable, said Jacob Meister, Governing Board President of TCRA and the attorney who filed the complaint. They have made it clear the lives of LGBT individuals are unacceptable to them and that same-gender families are unwelcome at Chick-fil-A.

This is gonna backfire........pun intended...........
Gay F’n Nazis.
Oh, this should be fun.
They sure know how to change hearts and souls dont they
Keep it up LGBT crowd. Play with fire, expect to get burned.
I truly believe the civil war is very close. Our side came out in force yesterday and their side ain’t backin’ down.
OMG what next? The man was saying his beliefs, nowhere on their website does it say gays aren’t equal to the rest of us or that they won’t be served with the same great service as anyone else. So where is the discrimination?
I hope this is thrown out with a judgement against the organization filing the complaint to pay CFA’s legal fees!
This lawsuit reminds us what we are fighting for - free speech but even more importantly, freedom to be left alone by minority groups AND the government to exercise our God given rights to freedom of religion and to express that religion in a peaceable manner.
This is how anti-bullying laws work, people. Any questions?
I used to not care about what they do, or who they are. Now they are pissing me off!
Oh come on now! Chick-Fil-A probably has plenty of servers who are gay/lesbian and there are probably untold numbers of gays/lesbians who eat there on a regular basis. Hardly discrimination there. Did you see that Wendy’s is supporting Chick-Fil-A on gay marriage! I will eat more frequently at those establishments from now on.
Rumprangers putting the cart before the ass.
NOT every state has same sex marriage laws. It is perfectly legal to speak out in support of traditional marriage laws.
In Colorado, where there is no legal same sex marriage, they tried to claim discrimination in being denies a same sex wedding cake. The state there can no more enforce upon a business an artificial constract that the state itself does not recognize.
I hope their pockets are as deep as (some of) their throats, cause they’re going DOWN.
Charge the Gaystapo Lobby with Rackeetering for interfering with their legally operated business. There was at least one bomb threat called into a CFA and plans to attempt tomorrow to blockade the parking lots/drive thrus to restrict their business.
“This lawsuit reminds us what we are fighting for - free speech but even more importantly, freedom to be left alone by minority groups”.
I have no grudge with homos,nor with people that do it with sheep, I just don’t want people who do it with sheep pressuring me to acknowledge equal rights with heterosexuals.
I really don’t care what homos do with each other, regardless of how disgusting it is to normal people, just keep it to yourself and don’t try to tell me it’s “Pride”.
THIS INFURIATES ME!!! I hope CFA sues them for slander. If they want war, give them one.
I hope Chick-Fil-A doesn’t just settle.
This is more lawfare from the left. Inventive conservative legal organizations need to figure out to counter with their own lawfare to make the price too high for this form of free speech and religious harasssment to continue.
They are out for blood if you do not contribute to THEIR causes. It's like the AIDS RIBBON BULLIES episode of Seinfeld.
Not only pissing off, but actually horrifying. This is blatantly absurd: CEO said all would be treated with equal dignity in his restaurants regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation.
We really are in a civil war now.
No doubt about it.
I think this was revenge for yesterday - plain and simple.
Looks like Chick Fil A had a big success yesterday! The HomoNazis are in a tither
This is why we need to speak out strongly against HomoNazi groups...and....whip some of our own back in line when we call groups acting like fascists “Nazis”
Take a stand, or someone will step on you
LGBT... it’s not just a sandwich.
Absolute lies, CFA NEVER said gays were not welcome, could not work or eat at their restaurants. The CEO merely exercised his 1st amendment right and expressed his opinion on same sex marriage. The right of free speech is loudly proclaimed as long as you don’t disagree with any leftist libtard agenda.
I was willing to take the high road on Friday, and I still may. But my patience is wearing thin. I still don't think this fight should be at a CFA location, but there should be a fight, and I think its high time we took it to them.
What this means is they are going after Chick-fil-A’s pocket book/bank account to punish them all possible for going against their will, and that means WE have to step up to the plate (pun intended) in support of Chick-fil-A all the more.
I’ll be adding a stop at Chick-fil-A to my usual shopping stops every Thursday in Moreno Valley.
Doubling down on ignominious defeat is always a good strategy.
Remember . . . What goes around, comes around.
We are having dinner at CFA shortly. We were there yesterday for breakfast. I am sick to death of homosexuals demanding we approve of their perversion.
Why the Dems should just mandate that the USDA require that all roosters be evolved to gay and all chicken hens be evolved to lesbians. Any rooster who goes hetero on a hen will be first circumcised publicly and then charged with a hate crime. That will fix Chick-fil-A for good! (”
Now they intend to run all the restauranteurs out of the state who don't kiss up to homosexuals.
There's no end to this stuff.
We need to just start calling these people Sanduskies.
I use to be the same (the libertarian part of me..) until the folks from “ActUp!” starting breaking things in SF back in the late 80’s. I’ve been against Gay marriage ever since.
He left out "Filthy", "Disgusting", "Perverted" and "Obnoxious Irritating Whiners".
Hate speech/hate crime against Chick-Fil-A ....oh wait, didn’t some Dimwit DU say that corporations are not people? So then how could you sue non-people?
PS - how can they claim discrimination? What did they discriminate against?? Did they forbid any LGBT person from buying their products???
Unless it ends up in front of a queer or lesbo judge.
Countersue for liable and defamation. I know a lot of Christian lawyers that would offer pro-bono services.
What is the damage caused by a person saying they don’t support homosexual marriage? Is there some massive monetary loss from that?
And since he limited his comments to his personal views, what deep pockets are there going to be other than his?
What possible case does this group have?
I sure hope this guy doesn’t fold. Please don’t give them any concessions.
This is pure out and out overkill. It’s been my experience that overkill kills the killers.
Countersue for 100 million dollars. Name the attorneys in the lawsuit in that they are filing a bogus claim.
That will shut them up.
Uh oh—it’s notarized!
I never were impressed by CFA, and the only ones going there and telling me it was soooo delicious were gay embracing ultraliberals...
... and now all this...
too ironic and too typical of the f@g socialist self destructive hysteria.
They like something, they have to destroy it.
