My husband and I ate at Chick-Fil-A on Saturday night in support of the CEO's and company's stand against same sex marriages. We will also be eating one or more meals on Wednesday, August 1st in support of this great company who still holds the Christian values more sacred than social pressure. Praise God! from Mema 41881

Are we going to start interviewing the CEO of every company to see what their "views" are? It's ridiculous that those who preach tolerance are the most intolerant of those who disagree with them. Has Chick-FilA denied anyone service for any reason? What in the world are they boycotting?

i hope one day you feel the pain of discrimination for who you are, sandi. love is love. people who love each other should be able to have their relationship legally recognized. don't force your views on others. i am a christian & straight and i believe in EQUALITY. i support gay rights and do not condemn others. and who cares what the CEO personally believes, but people don't want to see their money fueling HATE groups.
