Where Chicken Little Is Served Up With a Side Order Of Hate


A restaurant serving up hate and marginalizing a whole group of people; Actually, encouraging their patrons to feel hatred and claiming that bigotry is GODLY. It's not only priceless, it’s mind boggling. thinkingblue

Chick-fil-A day: Don’t boycott. Infiltrate.  
EXCERPT: Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor and former Republican presidential candidate had declared Wednesday, Aug. 1, as “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” in support of the company “whose executives are willing to take a stand for Godly values.” He wants people to celebrate those values “by simply showing up and eating” at the fast food restaurant.
(TAKE A STAND FOR GODLY VALUES!!! SAY WHAT? If there was a supernatural MAN IN THE SKY do you honestly believe he would approve of HATE and BIGOTRY towards HIS prized creation, MAN? I doubt it! thinkingblue)
Exactly what are those values, which have not only been espoused by Huckabee, but Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum and Tim Pawlenty (maybe not such a smart move as he’s being vetted for veep by Mitt Romney)?

EXCERPT: Bishop Gene Robinson, the first gay Bishop in the Episcopal Church, has a new book,”God Believes in Love: Straight Talk About Gay Marriage.”

“What would Jesus think about two men and two women getting married?” he asks in his book. “According to the accounts of the life of Jesus as recorded by the Gospels, Jesus never said anything about sexually intimate relationship between people of the same gender. Nor did he comment on sexual behavior between people of the same gender. Period.”

According to the president of the company, Dan Cathy, “We don’t claim to be a Christian business. But as an organization we can operate on biblical principles.

{{{{{ The question is, what are biblical principles? }}}}

Bishop Robinson points out that Jesus was “consistently on the side of those who were outcast by society and bore the unfair burden of disdain, discrimination, and prejudice.”


I can't believe it... lines and lines of people supporting bigotry and hate. They all ought to be ashamed. thinkingblue

Chick-Fil-A Has 'Record-Setting Day' While Embroiled In Anti-Gay Controversy

EXCERPT: Equality Matters published a report on Chick-fil-A's charitable work that found that the chain donated nearly $2 million to anti-gay groups in 2010. Among those to reportedly receive donations include the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian organization that has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Does America really stand for bigotry?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    As a nation, the U.S. consumes the most hot dogs per capita. So you'd be wise to never underestimate our powers of denial.

      Uproar Over ‘Mass Firings’ At Minn. Chipotle Restaurants

      RICHFIELD (WCCO) – A Minnesota immigration rights group is protesting what it calls “mass firings” of Chipotle workers. According to the group, around 50 of the restaurant’s Latino workers have been fired in the last week.

      The Minnesota Immigration Rights Action Committeee (MIRAC), a local group that fights for the legalization of undocumented workers, says employees at local Chipotle stores came forward, saying they were fired over questions about their immigration status.

      “We started to piece together there was something larger going on than a few people fired at one store,” said MIRAC member Brad Sigal. “It appears to be a statewide attack on immigrant workers who are longtime employees. Most of them been working there for years.”

    Eventually bigots will stop eating there every damn day, but the rest of us won't go back at all.  I can't wait for the day when they have to start opening on Sunday in order to remain profitable.

      I give them 3 years max until they go out of business or change their name.

      Hard to believe anyone had hours and hours of free time on a Wednesday to stand in a food line. Apparently their most loyal customers are all unemployed.

    and I will continue to not visit Chick Fil A, but the New Hampshire Pride Festival has already sold us out.

    Chick Fil A will be one of their sponsors. What is this? Abused spouse syndrome?
