Not wanting to take this away from the original focus. However, Christ made it clear believing in Him was the only way to secure happiness in the life after this one. You either believe that or you don't.

I feel some need to point out what He said, but in no way feel need to say I am right.

I agree totally with the CEO that we are not very smart to tell the creator of marriage what constitutes marriage when He plainly tells us what constitutes one. You don't have to agree, but don't claim to be a Christian if you are the one making up the rules.

Maybe, just maybe, Chick-Fil-A likes to sell chicken sandwiches to people? No matter where you get money in America, it's always green.

Agreed. Not a difficult concept. You don't have to be Christian to have a good lifestyle and care for others. And it obviously does not preclude one from being a certifiable a-hole.

Unfortunately many still believe that one can't be morally sound without religion.

How is he being judgmental? He's just saying if Christianity is right and all the others are wrong, those betting on the wrong side won't be real happy.

I think most everyone gets it. The issue is who is going to set the standard of what is moral?

Sure most everyone has good intentions and does not want to harm others. That achieves morrality on some level, and it is fine if that is all you desire.

That seems to be extremely judgmental to me.

Nobody knows what Christ said, the Bible is bs. And marriages were arranged in Biblical times, they meant nothing. They weren’t based on “love.”

I wouldn't consider a Muslim saying if they are right and all the others are wrong as being judgmental even though I am Christian. It's their belief and opinion.

One of my most controversial takes is that Chick-fil-A is overrated. But I do love how they trigger the libs.

The funny ting is, Dan Cathy actually stopped making donations to groups supporting political or social agendas and admitted it was a mistake to do so clear back in 2012. So his opinion basically "evolved" around the same time as their lord and savior Barack Obama.

I can see not frequenting a place that in someway supports something I was against but pretty hard to live a life that way, unless "off the grid" I guess.

It's a chicken sandwich. People really get this upset if the place doesn't fit perfectly in everyone's world? Or if someone has an impression that doesn't fit the annointed role they've assigned to a... STORE.




Is it really, you must be a "lib" if it's not perfect to your tastes or a "pub" if it's the only place in the world for you? People, that's sad to think there have to be such deep reasons behind an impression or preference.

I have always felt that you as a consumer can control where your money goes, if you do not like Dan Cathy and or Chick-Fil-A do not spent your money there go else where. Back when Target announced their new restroom and dressing room policy, I decided I did not like them and quit spending any of my money at said stores. Did target care whether I shop at the target stores or not? They seemed to have given me an answer to how much they cared by canceling my credit card. Never once did they say they missed me or my money. I can say I have found several new places to buy what I use to at Target so I guess I can say I do not miss Target either.

It's not all I desire, but will fight to the death (figuratively and in some cases literally) against anyone attempting to set those standards for me.

And if I desire more? Is religion then necessary?

They wouldn’t “say it”, they’d just lop your head off and rape your wife.

It’s not even intentional. This whole article is unprovoked and bigoted.

Then I suggest you pay attention for a while as you go about your life. Take notice of the store clerks, counter people, etc. How many times are you greeted with a smile, or a greeting that made you feel like a person, how many times have you felt like you were an intrusion on the person who's job it is to wait on you? How many people seem sloppily dressed (or even dirty)?

I've never not been greeted with a smile at Chick-fil-A. I've never noticed anyone shuffling through the store oblivious to the customers or dirty tables or empty ketchup dispensers. Regular teenage employees have stopped at the table to ask if they can get me a refill on my empty iced tea or if they can take my tray and trash. I've never had to go back to the counter because there was no ketchup or straws available. The floors are clean, the trash isn't overflowing, the condiments are full, and the tables are ready for the next guest.

That's service.

Maybe if I was hanging out in the middle east. Haven't heard of many beheadings here in the US though.

Really! And where did you get your degree in Theology? Or are you just stating your opinion which is bs as well?

I feel the same way about Taco Bell.

Ditto Jones' Good BBQ and Foot Massage, if ever in the Chicago area.

Here's a suggestion for you. Pay attention. Be nice and people are nice back, anywhere. It doesn't just happen at chicken places.

Like I wrote; I stood in line. I read the menu. I got my food. I left. They're friendly at the local fast food places. They're clean, they get inspected. Google chick fil a failed inspection. You'll find instances. No miracles going on. I liked the place, they just don't generally seem to put them in neighborhoods like mine prefering the more toney areas. That's fine. Good business. Our local fast foods donate a lot to our very needy schools and services. They hire our kids. They're generous. They're here. I'm sure if they put one of your restaurants here, they'd do the same.

I don't really need a "company line" nicety performance but it's nice. Bless your heart, if you need to go to a restaurant to have that experience, then do it.

Anyone else reminded of the Seinfield episode where a Kenny Rogers chicken restaurant opens up in Jerry's neighborhood, and Kramer and Newman become hooked on the chicken?

It is usually my belief and opinion that I am right and everyone else is wrong.

Many people believe that makes me "judgmental." Apparently they are wrong about that too.

Yes! Lol.

Also of the one that only hired big breasted women. In this case the turn on is wholesome white Christians with friendly smiles against gay marriage. That is fine. Hey just give me good chicken. Only have about 50 options at the moment.

Chick-fil-A is good. Krispy Krunchy is better. Hope that helps.
