Not many people in his position would do so.

    Kind of makes you wonder how many CEOs feel the same way, and we patronize them because we don't know.
    What did he say beyond this? (This site tells us that this is what all the hoopla's about...is it wrong?)

    The latest uproar began this month when Dan T. Cathy, whose deeply religious father, S. Truett Cathy, started the company in 1967, told a Christian news organization that Chick-fil-A supported “the biblical definition of the family unit.”
    “As it relates to society in general, I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ “
    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/26/us...-a-widens.html

    Here's the smartest thing he said:

    Last week, Mr. Cathy said in a statement that his company would “leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Exactly the point I am making. As long as the discrimination isn't against your chosen cause you don't care. Equality is not your interest, merely pushing your chosen agenda is.

    Probably better. Based upon gay marriage votes in individual states, more anti gay people are out there than gay supporters. Look at all the publicity Chick-fil-A has gotten over this.

    I'm not a fan of dehumanizing anyone besides child molesters and rapists. That is my point.

    Using voters (only 25% of the population) is too small of a sample to arrive at this conclusion.

    I get you. I can only really go off my experience. In the five area I've lived or frequent in Virginia routinely the best service, nicest stores, and best tasting food (in my opinion) has generally been Chick-Fil-A. It helps that I simply like some of their things better. I prefer their nuggets to just about every other place, I prefer their chicken sandwich to just about every other, and since I"m not a big fastfood hamburger fan I tend to go with those two more than I do burgeres. Love me some waffle fries, and their plethora of sauces are great. A lot of times though it's actually service that does it for me. I rarely feel that I'm getting unfriendly service and often am getting chipper and friendly service at a chick-fil-a. I typically can understand employees there and get understood which frankly, for a service industry, is important for me. Things like refills, additional sauce, etc...many places I seem like I'm bothering employees when I ask for it, where as often I find them actually initiating the offer to me at Chick-Fil-A. I don't doubt others have experienced different things at theirs or in their interactions...but in all five places in Virginia I've lived or frequent, all of them have been very very good.

    hey look its a new day. Can the CEO still say he doesnt support equal gay rights? Yep, just like he could yesterday

    thats why this still inst an infringement on the freedom of speech but IMO unless theres more info the company's freedom not to be unfairly discriminated against is being infringed. And even with more info or some legal loophole I would still not personally believe its right. No matter how horribly his company gives money to hate groups.

    Maybe this is why I don't "ooh and aah" over Chick fil-A... I'm more a burger person to begin with. I like a good chicken sandwich on occasion, but I'm really a burger guy most of the time.

    As far as strips and chicken sandwiches go, though, I would have to say that the stuff Hardee's has been doing lately... the hand-breaded stuff... is by far the best of any national chain. CFA is good, but Hardee's is better, IMO.

    My previous comment regarding Popeye's had to do more with full pieces of chicken (and their strips, to a lesser degree). I really like their spicy version.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No such thing as bad PR - the nearest Chick-fil-a is 30 minutes away and I'm craving it.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    It shows complete lack of basic comprehension, though.

    Open acceptance of atheism? Yeah right.

    Had popeyes for the first time the other day and was unimpressed. Admittedly, that could be due to the really, really, really cold fries that were thrown in my box and because I don't like spicy stuff so got their nomral chicken nuggets which were about average. But yeah, cold fries can ruin a fast food meal.
