    This is me using my free speech power to help keep you better informed about the potential danger of eating at Chick-Fil-A. I've see that link a hundred times today on Facebook. It appears that for a minority of Chick-Fil-A customers, the meal results in painful food poisoning.

    Can't be too careful.
    I see a conspirarcy, A supporter of Christine Quinn tainted the food in revenge of the CEO for utilzing free speech.

    Anytime you go out to eat, no matter the place, you need to be carefull.

    So you are ok with a local govt. to ban all business where owners may not agree with SSM?
    Can you show where Chick-Fil-A has refused to serve gay's.


    Too bad you don't realize you and other what power you have. If no one ate at a resturant, it would go out of business, at least at that location.

    NYU (one of my Alma Maters) can make up their own minds and I think I know which side they will come down on.

    According to NYU spokesman John Beckman, Chick-fil-A's President Dan Cathy's comments on gay marriage were out of step with the university's views.

    I've said the opposite several times in various threads. Don't put words into my mouth.

    No but I can show you where people have reported getting sick as a resulted of eating there food.

    If they fire someone for being gay, they may have a problem.

    Good.
    bad food and people getting sick from eating it is not unique to Chick..

    IMO, the councilperson overstepped her bounds when she mention her position. If she was speaking just for her, then she has all the right to say what she did.

    Sorry if you thought I was putting "words in your mouth".

    Then do you support the councilpersons action or not regarding Chick-F...?

    NYU students are bright. I'd be lucky to have my kids go there.

    You can't legislate (or withhold permits) based on Scientology, Islam, or even the twisted version of Christianity practiced by Dan Cathy and WBC.

    I don't even like calling Cathy a Christian, he lowers the religion into hate and bigotry just like Fred Phelps.

    Anyway, I absolutely don't think a city can withhold permits based on religious beliefs. But if a business practices discrimination, that's a different story.

    Well, the Chick-Fil-A critics are going absolutely hysterical with hate. Conspiracies to taint their food? Supporting politicians who abuse their power to an absurd and obvious degree? All because one guy in the company leadership said he preferred traditional marriage?

    I see ridiculous over-reach here that will burn these people in their rears but good. Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day shook them to their cores, and now they are reacting like little girls with spiders in their hair.

    Here's a prediction for you: Chick-fil-A Kiss In will be a big flop.

    You heard it here first.

    Slander? Or do you truely believe everything that is posted there? Do you think any of those posts could be motivated by a liberal movement?

    Here is what one comedian did: Function 4 Sports - Harrisonburg, VA

    Their google reviews were in the 300s, but google took them down because they were malicious.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
