not that it matters because I never ate at CFA in the first place

Cartoon is referring to municipalities refusing to grant licenses for Chik Fil A stores. Whatever people think about CFA, government shouldn't be using license/zoning laws to keep them out. If the community really doesn't want them, they should just not eat there.

This.
Separation is there for a reason. Unless corporation is doing something unlawful, why is the govt standing? Tarded.

If there is transparency for other corporations directly supporting causes which I oppose, I'll take a stand back. Otherwise it is a clusterfuck of fingerpointing.

Where is your rebuttle other than "I'm wrong and a complete dumbass" ? My simple point was: Some company is always making record profits, because the people are always focused on something.

Homosexuals are gay. All they ever want to do is find something to complain about or say they are being unfair, blah blah blah. Seems awfully familiar to racial groups, eh?

I don't see anything wrong with it? KKK isn't much different than any of the millions of black activist groups. But either way, what the fuck has the kkk done anytime in the last 15 years? I never see them in the news

It's pretty unfair they're not allowed to get married in most states, and the groups that CFA donates to are harmful to gay youths, so I think the protestors are in the right on this one. I don't expect the boycotts to have much effect, though

The backlash against CFA is dumb. But the boycotters are entitled to it, just as the CEO is entitled to his free speech both by saying AND by donating money to whatever groups he wants to. As long as what he does is not outside the law, he's free to do it. Just as those who disagree are free to not eat there. I don't have a problem with either. What I do have a problem with is this:

Opponents can't stomach Chick-fil-A's plans in Mountain View

Quote:
Opponents filed an appeal Thursday of a zoning administrator's recent approval of four permits that will allow the Atlanta-based company to build a 4,200-square-foot drive-thru eatery at 1962 El Camino Real.

David Speakman said Chick-fil-A's stance on gay marriage motivated him and others at Highlight Cam, a Mountain View startup, to launch an online campaign Wednesday to raise the $1,000 fee needed to appeal the zoning administrator's decision. They reached their goal in just 14 hours, receiving donations from the likes of former Assemblywoman Sally Lieber.

"To be honest, if it wasn't a Chick-fil-A, we probably wouldn't be standing up and opposing it," Speakman told The Daily News as he prepared to deliver the appeal to the city clerk's office.
Mayor Menino Vows to block eatery over anti-gay attitude

Quote:
Mayor Thomas M. Menino is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from bringing its Southern-fried fast-food empire to Boston — possibly to a popular tourist spot just steps from the Freedom Trail — after the family-owned firm’s president suggested gay marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

“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 they need licenses in the city, it will be very difficult — unless they open up their policies,” he warned.
Moreno tries to block restaurant that opposes gay marriage from opening in his Northwest Side ward

Quote:
A Chicago alderman wants to kill Chick-fil-A's plans to build a restaurant in his increasingly trendy Northwest Side ward because the fast-food chain's top executive vocally opposes gay marriage.

Ald.Proco "Joe" Moreno announced this week that he will block Chick-fil-A's effort to build its second Chicago store, which would be in the Logan Square neighborhood, following company President Dan Cathy's remarks last week that he was "guilty as charged" for supporting the biblical definition of marriage as between a man and woman.

Moreno stated his position in strong terms, referring to Cathy's "bigoted, homophobic comments" in a proposed opinion page piece that an aide also sent to Tribune reporters. "Because of this man's ignorance, I will now be denying Chick-fil-A's permit to open a restaurant in the 1st Ward."
San Francisco is the third city to tell Chick-fil-A: Keep out
Quote:
Edwin M. Lee, mayor of the progressive city, tweeted Thursday night: "Very disappointed #ChickFilA doesn't share San Francisco's values & strong commitment to equality for everyone."

He also added a warning to his subsequent tweet: "Closest #ChickFilA to San Francisco is 40 miles away & I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer."
Christine Quinn, New York City Council Speaker, Wants Chick-Fil-A To Leave New York University's Campus

Quote:
A prominent New York official is joining New York University students in calling for Chick-fil-A to be removed from the school's Manhattan campus, the fast food restaurant's only location in the city.

New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, an out lesbian, wrote a letter to NYU President John Sexton on July 28, calling for the university to take action against Chick-fil-A after recent controversial comments against LGBT rights were made by company president Dan Cathy.

"Let me be clear ‐‐ I do not want establishments in my city that hold such discriminatory views," Quinn wrote. "We are a city that believes our diversity is our greatest strength and we will fight anything and anyone that runs counter to that."
Umm, councilwoman, what's the definition of "diversity"?

I thought it was more about equal rights for employment like hiring handicapped people and midgets.
