    because I do like some of their food.

    I've always had a minor problem with not being open on Sundays for "religious" reasons-- but the anti Gay campaign is just stupid and has to stop.

    has the Boycott started? details, please

    •  I've been "boycotting" them for years (4+ / 0-)

      Not hard to do, since there are none in my area and I can't eat their food, being gluten-free. Being an atheist keeps me from doing business from companies that push religion with their products.

      an actual organized boycott is as likely to hurt their bottom line as National Organization for Marriage's has been for Starbucks.

      So, attempting it is an invitation to create a political embarrassment.

      But, public education about where the profits they reap go is smart. And they have taken a serious hit in the PR game. It does mean we can't ask ESPN why they're still partnered with Chick-Fil-A even as ESPN has taken steps to eradicate homophobia in sports.

        story...

        are you aware of the boycott of Anheuser Busch (Budwiser) by Jesse Jackson, Sr?

      I'd be tempted to call for a buycott.

      See, they sell these coupon calendars around New Years. And while some are 'buy this get that' format, the coupons for the no-strings free items have always been worth more than the calendar purchase.

      Now, they're counting on the purchase of additional items to make money off the deal - who just goes to a fast food place for a large soda or a sandwich with no drink or fries? - BUT there's nothing in the coupon policy preventing someone from buying a calendar or three and only redeeming the no-strings coupons while making no additional purchases.

      Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.

      •  Strike that. Judging from comments I hadn't read, (0+ / 0-)

        it appears the corporate falling-apart is occurring at too fast a rate to be sure they'd last long enough to get to the Net Free Food point.
