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'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.

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.)


 

Haha exactly what I was wondering

yes, KFC got a lot of heat for their practices a few years back.  but in reality, it is the suppliers to KFC that are doing the dirty work...and yes KFC is responsible b/c they choose to buy from these farms.  Buuut, in reality if you are eating chicken...you are supporting the cruelty of chickens.  even if it is labeled "organic" or "free range" which is a big load of s*** 9/10 times...those chickens are treated like trash as well.  Most cases, a "free range" chicken can be labeled such if there is a little door to an opening outside cage which is about 3x3meters or something ridiculous like that.  All the chickens try to cram through the door, but only a select few can get out and then prob have to stay there.

and even if a chicken IS truly free range, it doesnt change the fact that a chicken could live around 10 years under normal conditions and a chicken for meat - 2 months.  they are then hung upside down and shocked, run through scalding hot water and "murdered" as some may say.  now when you see that some places are kicking/stomping/throwing chickens....does this really make it ALL that much worse?  it certainly doesnt make it better....but if you ask me, cruelty is cruelty. 

Im not saying that eating chicken makes you a bad person, but the point is eating chicken supports the cruelty of chicken, whether you eat KFC or Free Range Organic chicken....all of those chickens live a short miserable life.

One of the big difference here is that Chick Fil A is not a public company.  Since it has no stock holders, they are not obligated to do their day to day operations that fit with the status quo.  If it was a public company, then they would have little to no choice but to stop supporting such organizations, because of the shareholders who may disassociate themselves.  Personally, I would like to know if CFA ever discriminated against gay employees, but that apparently is not the case as that is clearly against the law for any company to do so, private or public.

The other thing I pointed out here is In N Out.  They put biblical stuff on their paper containers.  One could argue that they are promoting religion and that it discriminates against atheists.  It could also be suggested that maybe they are anti-gay marriage supporters too.  Even though these arguments can be presented, they are still a private company and they have the right to do that.

None of us are obligated to buy CFA's food.  Thankfully we got a lot of different choices.  I just want to point out that no matter what choice you go with, there might be something bad about the company that you wished your money never went to in the first place.

I'm not too familiar with the other organizations, but Fellowship of Christian Athletes is an anti-gay organization? Since when? Did they just sift through their contribution list and find Christian based organizations and label them as "anti-gay"? 

Also, It's never been a secret that Chick-fil-a holds and sponsors Christian values, and I'm not quite sure how Dan Cathy's comment: 

“Well, guilty as charged. We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families – some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that ... We intend to stay the course. We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

Was interpreted as "WE HATE GAYS!" Can someone fill me in, or is this just some band-wagon bull s***?

"Biblical Definition of the family unit"

yes, as i stated earlier...chick fil a can do whatever they want with their money.  that is totally fine.  but the point is that i just dont want to give them MY money.

the thing with In N Out is completely different.  they are not using the money that we give them to fund anti-athesit organizations.  they are just putting John 3:16 on their cups...which is actually a really good verse to read, whether you are christian or not.  if chick fil a had bible verses of "the biblical definition of the family unit" or something like that...i wouldnt agree with it, but they would just be voicing their opinion....not funding their opinion.  and it COULD be suggested that In-N-Out are anti-gay...but that would complete speculation whereas chick fil a is public about their decisions to fund anti-gay organizations.  big difference there.

I left my point about In N Out open ended for one specific reason.  Do you know exactly where In N Out's money goes?  As far as what I've been looking at, there isn't much out there to trace exactly who they support.  There might be one very big reason why.  I have read that they support "Christian Causes."  As we have learned through our discussion, that can be something that works against you.

no i dont.....but i DO know where chick-fil-a's money goes, so I can start there.  And supporting "christian causes" could be anything from anti-gay to feeding starving children in India.  I see what you are trying to get at...but the fact is this: Chick-Fil-A publicly supports anti-gay causes, ergo I do not support Chick-Fil-A.  If I find out the people who farm my avocados use slaves to grow them, I won't buy those avocados anymore....but I dont have time to research every product that I buy.  When it comes into the light that my avocados are slave grown...that is when I will stop buying them.

All this talk about CFA is making me hungry.  I'm going to go there and try them out soon.
