Skip to comments.Is Chick-fil-A Anti-Gay? And if so, Should You Not Eat There?
Posted on 03/04/2012 11:17:41 AM PST by Rummyfan
Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit points to a story at Tax Prof Blog about Northeastern University's decision to bar the fast-food chain Chick-fil-A from that fine institution's campus.
Why the exclusion? On the basis of some of its charitable giving, Chick-fil-A is considered to be anti-gay by the gay rights group Equality Matters. Among the groups that raise ire are outfits such as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Focus on the Family, The Family Resource Council, and Exodus International. Certainly some of these groups talk often about pushing back on what they consider "the homosexual agenda" that has continued to spread like chlymidia despite the cancellation of Will & Grace some years ago. Exodus International is a leading "pray away the gay" outfit.

If they're anti-gay, that's just a bonus!
Hmmm...I had the chance to eat there last week in Utah. Kinda makes me wish I’d have stopped in and patronized them. Oh well...next time.
They always were anti-homo and that’s why I go there, especially the new one here in Hollywood. Our company always deals with the fudgers so why not once take a break?
Their loss. I’m sure there’s a Pepsico institution they can find to fill that void. That’s some crack chicken.
Now opposing homosexual Leftists pushing for para-constitutional non-existant so-called “rights” based on behavior choices—well that's just being a damn good American!
Don't let the bastards rule the language.
It keeps the AIDS and STD’s out of your sammich. Thank you Chick-Fil-A!
I don't recognize you or your authority on anything. You are nothing more than a parasite feeding off the decency of kind hardworking people. Crawl back under the rock you call home and devolve back into the primordial slime you came from.
I eat where I want. Except the Chicken and Waffle House in Watts.
So, what was REASON’s conclusion?
Do they endorse a boycott because of the owners political opinions?
WHich would make them the same as the leftists
They are a Mormon family, and thus, the values all come through. Heck, they openly put biblical sayings on some of their cups (in the past) and had VeggieTales for kids things. Not to mention the “Virtues” items, which you know aren’t socialist/liberal “virtues”.
My husband reads the local “food” blog, and about 6 mos ago a bunch of liberal harpies (typical in this area) went on about a Chick-Fil-A in PA (an hour or more above us, and we have CFA right here in town) supposedly being “anti-homo” because they supplied food for a “marriage counseling” seminar which would not include homos (they were a Christian group). Oh the cackling from these wenches. It ANGERED me when 1 of these harpies had the gaul to say, in the face of this controversy, that “CFA morals are QUESTIONABLE” and of course all of them thought they might boycott. OOOOOOooooo, that ticked me off. Unfortunately, I did not have an account and decided I did not wish to get involved in that type of thing yet. I have enough stife on-line with my other things, and that would be LOCAL - they would probably find out who I am and picket me. Bastards.
I LOVE Chick-Fil-A, and it’s just a bonus that they are MORAL.
Agreed. The chicken salad on wheat toast is a nice lunchtime sandwich. Their salads and lemonade is delicious as well!
2% of the population with maybe 30% going along with their political agenda, versus the rest of the country.
Wonder who might win that one, lol?
Equality Matters [that surely violates truth in advertising?] is ANTI-Christian.
My biggest problem with Chick-Fil-A is getting anywhere close to the one near me at mealtime. That place is always a mob scene.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding your reply, but Truett Cathy is Southern Baptist through and through, not Mormon. Those are the values shining through at his establishments.
I think we should start a list of the Anti-Gay companies and frequent them more often.
I am SICK and TIRED of the Gays demanding we accept their perverted lifestyle. I don’t like it and I WILL NOT accept it.
Wish we had one or many here.
FROM URBAN DICTIONARY
A way to apologize to someone you didnt know you were going to hurt with your actions
“I gave a Chicken Power to them after what I did last night”
“nobody would buy Domino’s pizza because it supposedly refused to include fetuses among its toppings”
Huh? ‘Splain, please....
BTW, I knew Nick Gillespie would write gutter and get smarmy sarcastic. Not sure why he’d do it in a public publication like “Reason”, but that’s 1 action I could judge by his dress and demeanor on Stossel.
Gays can eat there any time they like. They are anti beef.
They are not Mormons, they are Baptists. I went to school with Dan Cathy. He was a heck of a nice guy and strong as an ox at 16.
So, in other words, when the butt pirates go to eat there they go as homosexuals with their preferences stamped on theur foreheads, or do they go there to get a fricking sandwich to eat.
Maybe this establishment doesn’t like men hanging around their bathrooms or slobbering all over eachother in the booths. It is clear these jackasses can’t go anywhere without their sexual preference going before them. This restaurant should move. Better clientel elsewhere.
Funny, a classmate from high school worked at Chik-fil-A all through high school. I liked him, we were both Boy Scouts, he like Ronald Reagan, and wanted to go into the military.
Now, he is a lawyer, specializing in gay activism...and his Facebook page is cluttered with photos of him and his ‘partner’.
I just chuckle to think that he once worked for Chik-fil-A...and now he’s gay.
Yes, but their service is SUPERB. They are the fastest by far. They are nice, and correct, and fast. We have long lines EVERY lunch at our CFAs, but you can be out of there in 10 min. Meanwhile, ANY other “fast” food with that line will be a half hour. And screw you up.
You are right. I am sure I have read that he is a member of First Baptist Church of Atlanta.
Sorry, I thought I remembered reading long ago that they were Mormon. I thought it interesting given they were from the South, but we have Mormons here, too.
Are gays anti-Christian? If so, should they even bother eating at Chik Fil A?
The Left’s spin on C-f-A: anti-gay.
The Right’s spin on C-f-A: pro-Christian.
I’ll have a Chik-fil-A sandwich, thank you very much.
“Don’t let the bastards rule the language.”
“I am SICK and TIRED of the Gays demanding we accept their perverted lifestyle”
I’m S&T, too, but actually I DO “accept” and certainly “tolerate” it. I’ve done nothing to deserve the vitriol of these people.
However, I DON’T like them publicly going on about their antics (”Gay PRIDE”? Parades? Am I proud to be hetero? It just IS!), telling kids all about it, and griping about a “right” that doesn’t exist for anyone. I’m sick of them making an issue of something very personal and private, not just in the legislature, but in SCHOOLS, about something I never peeped about.
I’m not a fan of white meat processed chicken.
Thank you, I was just going to point that out.
There use to be a website www.buyblue.org that was a tremendous help for conservatives even though it was put up for libs. Unfortunately, the site has been inactive for several years now. I loved going there to note what companies they supported so I would do the opposite.
Another reason not eat chicken. LOL
The homos` “boycott” of Chik-Fil-A has been a boon for the company, if the numbers of customers is any indication. It`s turned into a wonderful family environmentbnow. I hope the “boycott” stays in place forevermore. What we`re seeing is a “Thank you Jesse Jackson” moment.
Just what IS “processed”? Cleaned?
CFA does NOT grind up meat. Every piece is a genuine cut of meat. That’s all I can say.
It is fantastic - tasting (chicken products, carrot salad, and milkshakes), service, and Godliness. Probably the only company I can support 100% whole-heartedly.
Truett Cathy is VERY religious (I go to his church) and even as wealthy as he is, still teaches Sunday School as he has for over 60 years.
He’s not “anti-gay” as much as he is Southern Baptist. That says what he is and isn’t.
Many times in the kids meals will be Veggie Tale books (religious cartoon) and of course his closing on Sundays.
But the food is so dang good that you just mumble and wait till Monday!
Yes, they’re definitely Southern Baptists, and yes, there are plenty of Mormons here in ATL as well. Not nearly as many as SBs, though.
They are not Mormon. They go to a Southern Baptist church in a southern Atlanta county.
You went to school with Dan???
We must be from the same town!
It’s about as unprocessed as fast food chicken gets.
I did a consulting gig several years ago for the $4B chicken division of a Fortune 100 food conglomerate. The HQ guys *knew* chicken. If they ate fast food chicken, they ate CFA, and it had nothing to do with who they had contracts with.
FBC of Jonesboro.
But he speaks at many churches around Atlanta.
