For one, it has absolutely nothing to do with fried chicken, it has to do with a person who happens to own a fried chicken joint. and T1000 I’d love to know why this is fake. You think it is so ridiculous there is no way anyone would post this as their status?
I do not understand anyone who believes this controversy is about chicken. You have to be real fucking dense to get that message. It’s about the fact that this company has donated over 5 million dollars to groups which are known as hate groups. It would be like finding out that McDonalds donates money to the KKK and people getting angry and boycotting. And then some dumb motherfuckers saying people are getting mad about burgers.
@ nopers: Thank you for educating everyone from other countries who do not know what this is all about. Actually, I mean fuck you for not getting it right, and using the same propaganda that the gays use.
Actually, they call them “hate groups” in order to put a bigger, albeit untrue, emphasis on their point. The CEO of the company plainly states he doesn’t support gay marriage. He never discriminated against anything or anyone eating there. The company isn’t open on Sundays, because they’re based upon Christian beliefs. And they do very well financially, which is interesting.
That’s the beauty of this country: religious freedom – you can believe in what you want, or nothing at all (and freedom of speech, and to bear arms, and due process, etc.). It’s completely legal. Eat somewhere else if you don’t like it.
He supports groups that support traditional marriage, and do not want gay marriage to happen (whether that includes “civil unions” or not is another matter). Currently, on a federal level, gay marriage is not legal. Some states allow it, but that doesn’t mean another state has to. That’s another beauty of our country: you can’t force one state’s laws on another state. That’s how our Republic works – the federal government does NOT get all the power… well, they’re not supposed to.
But I digress… your comparison of the KKK to groups who support traditional marriage is a fucking fallacy. Go eat rancid ballsacks and die.
@ Nails, and yet, we Nevadans have to adopt many of California’s laws because Californian’s like to come lose their money in Vegas. And try buying a new car that doesn’t meet California’s emissions and safety standards. Those tricky bastards.
Right, beatus; in other words, the country is going to shit because we’ve lost almost all sense of what we were founded upon. I kind of allude to that, but not enough.
Anywho, are there any more 3rd-world countries with injuns living in them we can take over and expand our borders into? Anything? Preferably something with rich mineral deposits, a shitload of oil and natural gas, and lined on both sides with beaches.
#18: Are you seriously comparing Focus on the Family to the KKK? Are you SHITTING me? Besides that ridiculously idiotic comparison, Chick-Fil-A also donates to organizations that benefit communities like Big Brothers, Big Sisters and give their employees scholarships so they can go to college and not have to work in a fast food joint for the duration of their lives. All this Chick-Fil-A hate is stupid, and I for one applaud them for sticking to their beliefs and am disgusted with anyone who bashes Chick-Fil-A for openly disapproving of gay marriage to the point of “boycotting” them while themselves criticizing organizations like Susan G. Komen for the Cure for not donating to companies that disagree with THEIR beliefs.
TL;DR: stop making a big deal out of f*cking nothing and living lives of outrageous hypocrisy.
I read quite a bit before my teeth started curling up on themselves, but I’m pretty sure that even if robby’s dad had stuck around (spoiler, he didn’t), he’ (robby) would still be a limp, wet, sad excuse of a man. because of his terribly cloistered childhood, young robby NEVER got see “…traditionally masculine and traditionally feminine social mechanisms…” and this was utterly terrible for the poor, delicate buttercup to cope with.
robby’s whole spiel seemed to just be how TERRIBLE IT IS TO BE DIFFERENT, OMG YOU GUIZE.
Whatever else, they don’t do deep-fried like KFC; they make motherfucking good chicken sandwiches, bitches!
But all that other stuff, too.
Oh, and Bacchante, you might wanna research that picture you memed a bit more. It’s a well-known fact, reported a thousand times that Christians/religious donate more time and money than folks identifying themselves as secular:
“The differences in charity between secular and religious people are dramatic. Religious people are 25 percentage points more likely than secularists to donate money (91 percent to 66 percent) and 23 points more likely to volunteer time (67 percent to 44 percent). And, consistent with the findings of other writers, these data show that practicing a religion is more important than the actual religion itself in predicting charitable behavior. For example, among those who attend worship services regularly, 92 percent of Protestants give charitably, compared with 91 percent of Catholics, 91 percent of Jews, and 89 percent from other religions.”
Find the sources yourself, because I don’t wanna copypasta that much.
