Chick-Fil-A Apppreciation Day

Postby Retro Lyra » Wed Jul 25, 2012 1:02 am

Article can be found here.

As many of you have heard, Chick-fil-a has had quite a lot of anger and hatred pointed toward it because of their anti-gay status. Apparently, Mike Huckabee has had enough of this, and has decided to make August 1 "Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day". His words on the matter:

The goal is simple: Let's affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1. Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we're considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.


So far, 8,000 people have signed up to participate in the event. What are your opinions on the matter, NS? Personally, I believe he has the right to believe what he wants, and if he wants to throw his faith into the Bible, so be it. I do not like this entire celebration, however. It gives off the stink of "shove your morales down everyone's throat".

As one comment on the article read, "I will be celebrating Chik-Fil-A day at Popeyes."

Any time now, Lyra. Any time. Watch your car keys.

And your weed stash.

And your bedroom door. Chances are, he'll rape you first, the Genocidal Bastard.

He doesn't specifically deny being homophobic, fundamentalist, hate-mongering, and intolerant.

1) Mike Huckabee was once considered Presidential material. Those days are over!
2) Why would I care either way about a fast food chain I haven't visited in four years?

Thanks, but no thanks Mike. I'm thinking Arbys!

Her first sign of trouble should have been receiving a hamburger at Arby's.


Also, surely this could have gone into the already existing thread on Chick-fil-a? At this rate the front page is going to be just three topics eight threads each.

Does anybody in the US ever cook a meal, from scratch using raw unprocessed ingredients, because the way fast food chain names are bandied about it gives the impression you all just eat takeout?

I felt that it was different than the other thread because it might focus on Chick-a-fil, but one thread is about Muppets dropping the buisness and this one is about Huckabee trying to create a celebration praising it. If worse comes to worse, we can always get a merge.

I have a garden and wildlife near my home for the sole purpose of feeding myself with my own effort.

But I do like me some fried chicken, and not the kind I make when I take a chicken from my coop and make it myself. Popeyes fried chicken :D

It's too bad Huckabee didn't call for a Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day on a Sunday.

It all basically reads as- "stand up against the people oppressing our right to oppression" "If they're against us, they're against God".

It kinda looks like it, though it'll be incorrect as simply being Christain isn't what he/Chick-Fil-A is being critisised for, but rather the oppressive, fundimentalist style of their practice. Like the Neo-confederates, they're hiding behind nice buzz-words like "God" and "Freedom" in order to continue their oppressive politics.
