Who would ever want to eat chemicals pretending to be chicken? Jesus would be more concerned with unethical advertising than true love and marriage between consenting adults.

It's a shame that some people live for hate.

I'd be curious to see the reaction if Chick-Fil-A had a significant presence in places other than the South.

I'm sure the franchise operators would really appreciate if he would just keep quiet and not alienate potential customer base. He's got the entire LGBT community and most democrats not willing to set foot in their restaurants, one must wonder how that is good for business.

This is a very serious problem killing many innocent people. American people need to be protected from spreading of AIDS. Why is this not front page news? The FACTS ARE.. Nearly 29,000 new cases of HIV, the AIDS-causing virus, were attributed to gay and bisexual males in 2010, and 82 percent of those cases occurred in large cities, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. "The HIV epidemic in the United States highlights inequities," said Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC's Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention. "One is that gay and bisexual men are over 40 times more likely to have HIV than heterosexuals

The founding fathers of this nation would applaude this decision - they put their lives on the line to provide a nation that was not ruled by religion - anyone who supports any laws based on the Church is in direct opposition of our constituion, of our founding fathers and of patriotism.

I feel guilty for having purchased one sandwich from this guy 5 years ago. I prefer to support people who share my values.
