    California Chick-Fil-A Offers Free Meals To Gay Marriage Supporters

    I truly do not think they are sincere.

    After all, you just do lose your bigotry and hate over night.






    California Chick-Fil-A Offers Free Meals To Gay Marriage Supporters

    A California Chick-fil-A did something shocking for same-sex marriage supporters this week: Supported them.

    Corey Braun, the franchisee of the Chick-fil-A in the Victoria Gateway Center in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., provided dozens of free meal coupons to a group of same-sex marriage advocates demonstrating Monday at an intersection near the restaurant, PinkNews notes.
    The move came months after Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy revealed his anti-gay stance in a July interview, saying he is "guilty as charged" when it comes to his franchise's "support of the traditional family."
    "There were a lot of things said over the past year," Braun told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin. "I wanted to show that Chick-fil-A doesn't discriminate against anybody. We serve everyone. We're happy to serve the community and this was an opportunity to have this group come in and show them our hospitality regardless of their beliefs, sexual orientation, or whatever. Chick-fil-A has never been about hate"
    Back on Aug. 1, hundreds flocked to the Rancho Cucamonga restaurant on "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" in defense of Cathy and his anti-gay marriage comments. But on Monday, things were different, and same-sex couples and same-sex marriage backers were surprised at Braun's act.
    "[W]hen people are open and apologetic and accepting, it's touching to us," Eden Anderson, a board member with LGBT rights group Equality Inland Empire, told the Daily Bulletin. "It feels like acceptance and we just want to be accepted and engaged in society, so when it's confirmed, I think the overall reaction was, yes, certainly that Chick-fil-A in Rancho Cucamonga is welcoming to us."
    Meanwhile, same-sex marriage advocates Wednesday posted signs in defense of equality on the front of a Chick-fil-A in San Antonio, Texas, according to Houston station KHOU. The signs were scrawled with messages like "Government can not dictate love," "Support love note hate" and "Your son is gay and everything will be okay."
    The demonstrations come as the Supreme Court reviews the constitutionality of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California's Proposition 8. DOMA defines marriage as a legal union between a man and a woman; Prop. 8 is a same-sex marriage ban passed in California in 2008.
    In contrast to Chick-fil-A, other major companies have proudly come out in support of same-sex marriage. Budweiser, Expedia, Martha Stewart Living and HBO each designed their own versions of the red equality sign this week in a public display of unity.

    Even though you're obviously a very naive, nanny state Liberal, do you have any idea how "For Profit" businesses operate?

    Editing a post to try to insult is so 3rd grade.

    At least the second time in a 24-hour period; a thread with an OP that seems almost specifically designed to demonstrate the point that I often make, about how those who most loudly proclaim their opposition to bigotry usually turn out to be the worst bigots of all.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I thought your idea was suspect once upon a time.... i'm coming around to it though....primarily because I can't ignore the evidence.

    I will welcome you to Republicanism with open arms. See, Republicans are not against gay-marriage, we question why government recognizes marriage in the first place! And see what happens? An organization that donates directly to the FRC can have franchisee's that support gay-marriage without punishment to said franchisee. Now, the government would punish Chick-Fil-A for not complying with their new compliance laws... but you can't truly have a free society if the government is oppressing people, something governments have been known for.
    Most self-described liberals and progressives aren't nearly as liberal or progressive as they believe themselves to be.

    The single greatest threat to liberty is the collective belief that government grants it.

    Repubs not against gay marriage?? LMFAO. really? So, before the big push for equal rights, the Republicans were making noise to keep the gov out of marriage? LOL, i dont think so. A good majority of religious people are republicans/libertarians. They are the bigots.

    Let me entertain you a bit here: GOP chairman urges tolerance for views on gay marriage

    The homophobic comments were made by the CEO of Chick-Fil-A. This action was made by a franchisee who is not the CEO of Chick-Fil-A
