RE: The snack wars have just gotten ugly
I haven't eaten at a Chick-fil-a in over a year, and I have no intention of doing so while they hold such blatantly bigoted views and company policies.

RE: The snack wars have just gotten ugly
For anyone interested here's a link to something that sort of shows the other side of the story. It's a bit weak but It's what I found. Also note that by posting this link it does not mean that I'm for Chic Fil A and what they stand for, I'm just trying to be somewhat fair by posting the other side of the story.http://www.mrc.org/articles/chick-fil-publicly-acknowledges-its-conservative-media-upset
I have studied the Bible and the theology behind Christianity for many years. I have been to many churches. I have walked the depth and the breadth of the religion and, as a result of this, I have a lot of bullshit to scrape off the bottom of my shoes. ~Ziploc Surprise

If anything, the article read to me like "So what? We're 'conservative'. The liberals just don't like it"

They seem to be persisting under the delusion that the problem people have with them is that they hold a position that is markedly "traditional" or "conservative." That's not really the issue at all (at least insofar as I'm concerned); they can have whatever backwards beliefs they want. The issue for me is their monetary support of organizations that work to disseminate anti-equal marriage propaganda and that actively attempt to fight against equal marriage as though it's an issue that they have a right to decide on. It's an issue of basic civil rights, and it shouldn't even be up for debate.

Yet here we sit.

And now Chik-fil-a seems to be creating sock puppets on social media sites to spin some damage control.

I don't have an interpretation. Thank you for the complimentary Rabbi status though, I'm suitably flattered. I'll get back to you on your inability to use the internet later. Busy having a life here. I hope that you understand.

Oh Boston...

Quote:“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion,” Menino told the Herald yesterday.

“That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”

If he can stop a Wal-Mart from opening, I'm pretty sure Chik-fil-a doesn't stand a chance.

Here's another article about the (I guess it's called a) sock puppet ploy:
http://freethoughtblogs.com/ashleymiller...is-caught/

I haven't had time to debunk this if it needs debunking though. I'm working on a time consuming project right now and I just don't have time to do this.
