I happened to be talking about Chick-Fil-A to Trevor just yesterday, but someone just coincidentally sent this to me.

If I still ate chicken or if Chick-Fil-A was even in Australia, I would boycott it.  But I can't, so you should instead.  I knew that they were a Christian organization, but had no idea they went this far.  Yes, prejudice tastes really good in this case...but you can make a chicken sandwich just like this at home.  Two pieces of bread, chicken breast, pickle...done!  As for the waffle fries...I'm not sure how they do that, sorry.

I wonder if, being good christians and all, they're going to remove pork items from their menu... or only serve fish on fridays... or if the shirts their workers wear aren't some sort of polyblend....

but in their defense, they are just against gay marriage.  they aren't discriminating against gays in their workplace to give quality food.  there's a big difference.  the company owner can do whatever he wants with his philosophies.  can we agree that people in america are entitled to believe in whatever they want as long as they have hurt no one in the process?  as far as i know, he has committed no crime against humanity to deserve this kind of fall out.  being that it is an election, i think that he unfairly got cherry picked because his ideas are more in alignment with "traditional" values. 

there are probably likely a few organizations who i have contributed to who have key people who have belief in things i am totally against.  i try not to pay attention about these things.  i just want the value for my dollar and to walk away happy.

it's not so much his personal beliefs as it is the fact that chick-fil-a has donated millions to anti-gay organizations that are more than simply "against gay marriage." i'd rather get the value for my dollar and walk away happier knowing that i didn't just inadvertently fund an organization i disagree with. 

and he didn't get cherrypicked, he actively spoke out about the issue.

     

for the record i don't eat at chick-fil-a because their overt christianity has always rubbed me the wrong way. closed on sundays? come on!

yes, i think people in america can do whatever they want with their philosophies AND with their money...but i want no part in giving them money if it is going towards something that i dont support.  i am sure that there are many other companies that get my money and fund things or have practices that i am against as well....but once i become aware of said funding/practice why would i continue to give them my money?

have any of you thought about that?

and he did get cherry picked by these news organizations.  out of all the issues going on, this is apparently so important - meanwhile, we got growing debt, corruption within the banking system, terrorism worries, people doubting the future of america

i dont have an iphone, dont plan on buying one even if their sweatshop conditions were fixed.  i do have a mac computer, but will not need another one for many years.  if the conditions in apple factories are not resolved by that time, i promise you that i will go back to PC.

debt, corruption in bank system, terrorism, etc. are all serious issues...but they have nothing to do with the topic.  just b/c there is a possibility of terrorists, should i abandon my moral ground?  i think not, my morals remain intact.

i don't buy apple products either. 

look i'm not going to pretend that i'm perfect. plenty of the products we use in this country are made in sweatshops. in some cases there are few (affordable) ways around it. if i was actively avoiding all companies that use unscrupulous business practices i wouldn't be able to live the lifestyle that i live. i recognize that, and i try to make up for the bad by doing something good.

the point is that if company A and company B are both selling chicken sandwiches for $5, but company A will give one dollar from each purchase to an organization that finds and kicks puppies, then i'm going to support company B. (and if company C is selling me a chicken sandwich sourced from a local sustainable / organic / hippie chicken farmer for $9, then i'll probably try to support them when i can afford to do so.)

Hypocrite Christians drive me crazy. They give other Christians a bad name. :(

Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.

-Luke 6:37

I'd say that sums up my thoughts on it pretty well.  The money I give Chick-fil-A will go towards the anti-gay causes the owner subscribes to, and knowing that I can't reasonably give them my money.  I can choose to spend my money at KFC, the gayest chicken place in the world.
