    understand why large national chains and corporations get into the social conservatism game. FISCAL conservatism, yes. That makes obvious sense. You would expect the the people who run them to be Wall Street Journal/Alex P. Keaton types. But THIS?????

    Target gives to anti-gay hate politicians... Carl Karcher is (was?) another geriatric, fundie, frothing, gay-loathing slimeball fast food mangate who dontated tons of money to Yes on 8 and other groups similar to what Chick-Fil-A does.

    Why on earth do they think that catering only to right-wing Christian Fundamentalists is good business sense? Maybe this is how they wish their "lost" America still was, but with the internet in this day and age and the changing attitudes of people, especially young people, towards LGBT people, how can they not see that it's business suicide? They would rather smite gay people and liberals than get them as potential customers?? How screwed up is that??

    F*** Chick-Fil-A.

      If a person achieves wealth, that doesn't inherently mean they abandon the principles they were raised with. If a person's spiritual or religious values are precious to them, then they can endure despite a person's wealth. It's not as if the owners of Chick Fil A suddenly abandoned their principle of allowing workers off on Sunday, which I'm sure also affects their bottom line.

      And there are many many business owners who are true believers too.
