    i beg to differ. have you been to or driven by a chick fil a since this whole thing started? This has helped them. I have been there personally 5 times now and each time took almost an hour. Thursday night it took forever just to park.. saturday i couldnt get food because they actually had to close the chick fil a near here because they ran out of food. This is not hurting them..

    i do find it a bit funny how chick fil a's owners values have not changed nor has he ever hidden them and henson had no issue entering into a partnership with him. Then when chick fil a decides to pull her crap out of its boxes suddenly she does. hell of a coincidence.

    he is entitled to his opinion whether he owns a business or not. the fact is his restaurants in no way discriminate against gays or lesbians in service nor employment.

    Where do you get the audacity to pretend that liberals are any more or less conceited than you?
    are you somehow under the impression these things were ok or that I thought they were ok?

    I don't think for the most part that this will hurt their business. It would depend largely on area. Some of these restaurants are located in areas that have a large LGBT population, but even there they don't report considerable loss of revenue. The reality is that this just isn't the firestorm that the media is making it out to be and that most people simply don't care one way or the other. Not to mention that persecuting your local Chick-fil-A franchise is not likely to have that much of an impact on the national headquarters.

    I've never ate at their restaurants and I don't intend to start. However, I live in the south and if I didn't frequent businesses that are anti-gay then I would be in trouble because most of them down here are that way. I do try to throw extra business towards companies with good track records, like Starbucks, but regionally speaking, I'm just out of luck.

    What are you talking about? I wasn't quoting you.

    I just find it funny that conservatives get rattled about one anti gay business being protested by liberals when several pro gay businesses are protested by conservatives.

    It's only political because someone else made it so. The company is just doing business, and the owner has personal religious beliefs which are offensive to some people. It is the right of anyone who wants, to refuse to do business in his establishments, just as it's within the rights of Henson to sever ties with whomever she so wishes.

    The president of the company made it political.

    My problem is attempting to shut down or ban a business, as these 4-5 mayors want to do, when Chick did not discriminate against anyone. We, as a country, are bleeding jobs. The economy is tanking. And the future isn't looking any better and we're playing political dice with jobs.

    If you don't like where this one particular citizen gave their money, then don't buy from them. It's your right to do so.
