I guess it's pretty good? Haven't had it in a few years and not planning to go there again anytime soon.

#152 Edited by verticalstripes (33 posts) -

I find all the people saying that they won't ever eat at Chick-fil-A ever again because of this whole "controversy" hilarious. So what if you disagree with their stances on certain topics? I go there to get awesome chicken, not to talk politics and morals. Practically every company is gonna have people you disagree with on some topic if you bother to search. What they said was blown hugely out of proportion anyways. They don't discriminate against costumers or employees for their beliefs, they just personally don't believe in gay marriage, which is a huge shocker coming from a Christian company. It's not like they were actively campaigning against gay marriage, they were just stating their stance. I hate how everyone is so easily offended and ready to freak out nowadays, it's ridiculous.

Edit: Never actually answered the question haha. Their chicken and milkshakes are awesome. Wish they had more variety in the menu, but what they have is great.

I am absolutely dumbfounded that some people are unable to distinguish between bigotry and... not. The CEO of Chick-fil-A said he is personally against same-sex marriage. This does not mean that he hates gay people, he just happens to believe that the institution we call "marriage" should be reserved solely for the joining of two people of the opposite sex, nothing more. One can be opposed to gay marriage, and not be a bigot. Shocking as it may seem, it is possible, and really in my experience, that's the norm. I have yet to meet one person who is opposed to gay marriage and also claims to genuinely hate gay people. Opposing gay marriage is not bigotry... that's the point I'm attempting to make here.

Personally I don't care how government defines marriage or anything else; I don't feel that government reflects on me personally. If I ever go down to the States I'll be sure to go to Chic-Fil-A for spite: I might buy a second one for the birds.

Can you not read? THEY DONATE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO ANTI-GAY GROUPS. Let's see here. Some money to a group called "Exodus International." A group 100% anti-gay. They say they can "cure" your gay, and 2 million to numerous other anti-gay groups.

Pretty sure supporting the causes and donating millions of dollars to anti-gay groups that claim to "cure" gay people and to "pray the gay away." fits the definition of bigotry.

Technically by that definition people who are against Chick-Fil-A's views are bigots as well then [See 1). and 2).]. Boycotting their products and not allowing them to start a chain in certain states because of their religious beliefs certainly fits the definition. Thus, claiming they are bigots is rather hypocritical don't you think?

I'm fairly certain a vast majority don't 'hate' gays and if we're going to claim intolerance it would be rather simple to state the aforementioned people boycotting products etc. are intolerant as well.

Intolerant:

a. Unwilling to tolerate differences in opinions, practices, or beliefs, especially religious beliefs.

b. Opposed to the inclusion or participation of those different from oneself, especially those of a different racial, ethnic, or social background.

This is why an argument based on semantics doesn't work.

#169 Posted by KingPossum (236 posts) -

Essentially, its good for fast food when it comes to chicken sandwiches. They also make a good chicken noodle soup.

But all of this is arbitrary since what you can personally make is much better than whatever they can dish out if you put some time and care into quality ingredients. (also at the fraction of the cost)

It's a shame that many newly developed areas in the US get quickly over-saturated with national chains that create their menu based on the financial efficiency of food delivery and storage rather than taste. Go to even an average chef's local restaurant shack where they put a second thought into their craft and you'll taste the difference.

The "victim card"....really...

What rights are they purportedly 'taking away'? You said yourself that they donate to groups who pray and attempt to 'cure'.

These are the groups they donated to [according to the link posted]:

  • Marriage & Family Foundation: $1,188,380
  • Fellowship Of Christian Athletes: $480,000
  • National Christian Foundation: $247,500
  • New Mexico Christian Foundation: $54,000
  • Exodus International: $1,000
  • Family Research Council: $1,000
  • Georgia Family Council: $2,500

Marriage and Family:

The mission of The Family Foundation is to strengthen families in Virginia by applying founding principles and faith to policy and culture. The organization seeks to establish through citizen advocacy and enactment of Virginia law a safe, prosperous and wholesome climate for families. All of its public policy decisions are based on the principles of life, marriage, parental authority, constitutional government and religious liberty.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes:

About FCA

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching millions of lives... one heart at a time. Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA is the largest Christian sports organization in America. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.

The FCA Vision

Since 1982, we have received over $4 billion in contributions and made over $3 billion in grants to thousands of churches, ministries, and non-profits.

New Mexico Christian Foundation:

See above.

Exodus International:

Doctrinal Statement

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word Of God, the final authority for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction for right living. We believe in one God, existing eternally in three Persons:Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, fully man and fully God, only begotten Son of the Father. he was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, buried and rose physically from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will come again in power and glory.

We believe that faith alone in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord frees us from the mastery of sin, and its consequences of death and eternal damnation. He assumed the penalty of death Himself, and enables us to live out of His resurrected life unto eternity. We believe the Holy Spirit carries out this work of renewal in our lives, empowering us to grow in loving union with our Heavenly Father and to walk in obedience to His will. We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is formed of all those who know Him as their Savior and Lord, regardless of denominational beliefs.

Family Research Council:

Since 1983, Family Research Council (FRC) has advanced faith, family and freedom in public policy and public opinion. FRC's team of seasoned experts promotes these core values through policy research, public education on Capitol Hill and in the media, and grassroots mobilization. We review legislation, meet with policymakers, publish books and pamphlets, build coalitions, testify before Congress, and maintain a powerful presence in print and broadcast media. Through our outreach to pastors, we equip churches to transform the culture.

Georgia Family Council:

Georgia Family Council (GFC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) research and education organization committed to fostering conditions in which individuals, families and communities thrive. Carrying out that mission is a challenging endeavor that requires a multi-faceted approach

Not sure what's so 'evil' about these groups...

Exodus International, the group they donated the least to, are the only ones who appear to have an openly 'anti-gay' stance. Are we going to silence them because their beliefs differ from ours? Wouldn't we be 'bigots' then?

"Earlier this month, a Change.org petition with 700 endorsers prompted Starbucks founder and CEO Howard Schultz to back out of a speaking engagement at a leadership conference hosted by well-known evangelical Christian pastor Bill Hybels, whose Willow Creek Church teaches marriage is reserved for one man and one woman."

Do you see how hypocritical the 'Christians are bigots' stance is now? If you want, I can produce some more stories such as this one, there are plenty.

#176 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -
@Flawed_System Who ever said Christians are all bigots? Not me that's for sure, and yes the victim card. When I see a person trying to "cure the gay." and is openly against gay marriage and somebody calls them an idiotic bigot, they ALWAYS pull out "stop being intolerant of my opinion." and to me that's absolute bullshit, you're the one trying to take rights away from a group of people, and deserve to get chastise for your beliefs.

Could you imagine the backlash of suddenly black people were not allowed to get married, Muslims not allowed? Etc.

For the new page, here's the rest of that quote:

UCLA law professor and blogger Eugene Volokh observed, "[D]enying a private business permits because of such speech by its owner is a blatant First Amendment violation." Echoing those views were Glenn Greenwald of Salon, professor John Turley of George Washington University, and Adam Schwartz, a senior attorney with the ACLU.

Denying a business license in America because of someone's religion or personal beliefs is absolutely a human rights issue. The ACLU and First Amendment agree. Gay marriage is also a human rights issue, one that is currently being decided on a state by state basis.

But it's not because the CEO said something bigoted, it's because they donate to companies like Exodus International. If Gizmondo had wanted to open a location in Chicago after their ties to the Swedish Mafia were uncovered, or Monsanto had wanted to open a terminator seed production facility in the city, or if a front for Kony's Lord's Resistance Army had wanted to open a location in the city, I don't think banning them from entering the city or state would have been illegal.

But Exodus International, despite how fucked up their organization might be, isn't doing anything illegal. At least not that I'm aware of, and please correct me if you know something that I don't. If not, then they are clearly not on the same level as the Swedish Mafia or a Terminator production facility.

And besides, that Terminator factory is totally legal.

No, I get that about the legality; ties to the Swedish Mafia, unless illegal activity can be proved, are not illegal either. I'm saying that I don't think banning them from practicing in your city/state is illegal/unconstitutional either.

@Jumbs: The company isn't bigotry. It is all blown out of porportion. This is from Chick-fil-A's own website

Chick-fil-A is a family-owned and family-led company serving the communities in which it operates. From the day Truett Cathy started the company, he began applying biblically-based principles to managing his business. For example, we believe that closing on Sundays, operating debt-free and devoting a percentage of our profits back to our communities are what make us a stronger company and Chick-fil-A family.
The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our Restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect –regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.Our mission is simple: to serve great food, provide genuine hospitality and have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.

http://www.chick-fil-a.com/FAQ#?category=1

uh sorry dude, but their CEO has a very strong and well known anti-gay and anti-gay marriage position. He funds anti gay groups and back politicians with anti gay marriage policies. He even came out in the press recently saying that he was"guilty as charged" in regards to his anti-gay stance and funding. This has led to both Henson Inc. and the authors of the Berenstain Bears to pull their support from working with Chick-Fil-A. Don't take corporate wording as truth, because it's often a lie.

In other words you agree with his point of view concerning homosexuals and you're going to use one poll to justify your stance. In your opinion then the other half of America is insane. Yes, that sounds logical. You don't sound extremist at all.

@SeriouslyNow: Not nearly half of America would make a news story out of absolutely nothing. Not half of America is pestering a man with a set of views that similiar to half or close to half of the their country. I respect that other people have other views and even try to understand those views. I do not try to personally disrespect people who have a differing opinion than me; I would appreciate the same courtesy.

McDonald's southern chicken sandwich is a completely viable alternative to chick-fil-a. People who will stake their reputations on Chik-fil-a are from the south.

Yes it is. Don't you doubt it. It's that fuckkng good. I'd rather get a chicken sandwich there than many nice, sit down restaurants.

You know how I know you don't live in a big city? Cause of that statement.

It's a higher quality fast food chicken sandwich, it's not great; it's not terrible.
