    Chick-fil-A changes position

    Looks like that one day event didn't help Chick-Fil-A as much as the long term effect hurt them


    Chick-fil-A agrees to stop funding anti-gay groups, Chicago alderman says | The Lookout - Yahoo! News

    Chick-fil-A, the fast food chain that sparked a firestorm earlier this year after its president made public comments against same sex marriage, has agreed to stop funding anti-gay groups, a Chicago alderman says.

    Joe Moreno, the alderman whose opposition of a proposed Chick-fil-A on Chicago's north side helped fuel the controversy, told the Chicago Tribune the company has pledged to include a statement of respect for all sexual orientations in a memo to staffers and has promised that the WinShape Foundations, its not-for-profit arm, would no longer contribute money to groups that oppose gay marriage.



    Chick-Fil-A realized that bigotry was going to substantially hurt their long term profits.

    So long as this was all there was to it.

    While absolutely possible, I think I'll believe it when I see Chick-Fil-A do such action rather than when a Chicago politician says it

    I'm not sure the whole thing wasn't contrived to generate the short term sales increase. It wouldn't be the first time Christians played the martyr to make a buck.

    Could be...but it appears that all of those people who showed up one day to express their bigotry didn't go back enough to make up for all of the business that they lost as a result. If it wasn't for their nasty food, I would have to go and patronize them myself now.

    "Bigotry"?! How about removing that word and inserting 'belief". Contray to the left opinions are still legal in the U.S. You should feel very lucky to ;ive in a country where homosexauals are permitted to exist. Try marching for the cause in many other countries throughout the world and i guarantee you a quick trip to the gallows. Bless Chic-Fil-A And who gives a rat's rear what any trash ball from Chicago says.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Your assumed analysis of why the change is completely wrong. It was likely NOT a "profit" decision at all - plus this all has been extremely profitable to the company. But to some non-religious people I suppose they could conclude all of life is only about money, so I can understand your assumption.

    No, this isn't the first time politicians have created a diversion from real political issues that are otherwise the media topic. This was always a non-story.

    Free speech is in the process of effectively being outlawed by Democrats. Organizing protests against those expressing views they don't like and apologizing to rioters and murders for a video that is critical of their politically-correct now religion.
