Chick-Fil-A dealt with a storm of bad press a short while ago because of a statement by Dan Cathy, the president of the fast-food chain, saying he was "guilty as charged" when asked about his opposition to gay marriage. His comments, along with Chick-Fil-A's monetary donations to anti-gay organizations, led to a media frenzy.

But times have changed. Now, a Chick-Fil-A executive has confirmed that the chicken-loving, fast-food chain will stop donating to such anti-gay groups like Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council, according to The Civil Rights Agenda. Do you think this news is a great step for the fast-food company? Or do you feel that Chick-Fil-A was bullied into making this decision?

Chick-Fil-A had plenty of support for its anti-gay-marriage stance, but in the end, the restaurant chain chickened out.

    Boycott is akind of blocking entry to business. Then business owner have rigts to call police to clear up blockage. Suppose bocott group refuse to clear pathway to business then police has rights to arrest... What will happen next? one little stubborn lead into big action Then taxes come in picture with overtime of enforcement officer , appearance in jail and appearance in court... Eating up tax that could had go other better way to improvement of living condition in cities.

    Boycotting is NOT blocking entry to a business. What you describe here is picketing.
  • Turings... silentart 2012/09/23 23:21:46
    Boycotting IS refusal to patronize. Violence and police are associated with picketing. No one is doing that.
  • silentart Turings... 2012/09/25 05:40:15
    What is difference between boycott and picketing? their action is so similiar.
  • Turings... silentart 2012/09/25 17:31:13
    Boycotting is a refusal to buy anything from a particular company. You can do that staying home. Picketing interferes with OTHER people's choice to buy by standing in their way carrying protest signs. Nothing similar about it.

    Well, Chick a fil is not far from my home, I watched action . I noticed that some people were blocked by "boycotting" so that influence my viewpoint of 2 wordings between boycott and picketing.
  • Turings... silentart 2012/09/27 04:21:11
    Really? There were no protesters at CFA when I went. Just lots and lots and lots of customers.

    Being Bullied
    None of the above. The Chick-fil-a board of executives are being smart about getting free publicity by milking the conflict over gays. It's free advertisements and makes them look like the "good guys".

    Wake up! They are treating you like a herd of sheep and you follow. This is getting silly.

    That is yet another lie coming from the bullies and of course NYT jumped on it because the lie suits their agenda. Chick-Fil-A has not changed their policies at all as a result of the bullying. Yea Chick-Fil-A!

    Being Bullied
    And this move won't help them. Their critics will ask for more, now they will demand that they donate to the charities they approve. Typical.

    the real Hate and Bigotry lies with those who have your mentality, you HATE all who disagree with you and your lifestyle choices and think you can Bully them like the rest of the 20% Liberal Progressives who act like they have 80% behind them..

    they don't HATE anyone. they are Christians, and would prefer Male, Female marriage so the earth will continue with people. Why if we disagree, you think people hate people? That's really pretty closed minded.. Chick-fil-a also closes on SUNDAY, so is that wrong too?? Obama HATES the USA, SO do you have anything to say to him about that? , OR do you have his same Beliefs??

    Dear Eddie,
    I can tell you I don't lie, it only causes you heartache, and I'm sorry people do lie to you.. I don't hate anyone, and I have been beaten, raped. I have friends of all walks of life, gay, straight, black, native Indian, etc.. We all have to decide what is best for us in life.. God does love everyone, but it is up to each one of us whether we follow HIS Commands... He does give everyone a choice.. Remember, Satan is the deceiver. He always wants you to think the grass is greener on the other side..

    Ahhh, Thomas Jefferson, I believe....

    "I have examined all the known superstitions of the world, and I do not find in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth."

    What hate groups did Dan Cathy donate to?
    I keep hearing about all these hate groups he donates to but nobody has named a single one of them.

    Your statement is not factual therefore it is a lie and any attempt to defend your lies are foolish.

    Joseph, I have friends of all walks of life. NOT all Christian's are haters, that is not what we are taught. God does not HATE anyone either. He gives you a choice as to what you want to do in life. I wish you the best in life, and a great 2013..

    Isn't it funny how the people who don't want gays to have equal rights aren't haters but gays are haters because they want equal rights?
