    All of it is processed to hell and back, best to avoid whenever possible.

    I don't mind what the man believes, I just wish they'd use organic greens, vegs, fruits and healthy oils.

        No one's saying that Chick-fil-A shouldn't be allowed to donate to anti-gay groups (well, maybe some people are, I don't know; but if so, they're wrong). But as for why it's OK to support gay marriage and "not OK" (in the sense of inviting shame and ridicule from progressives) to be anti-gay marriage, it's the same argument as being pro-interracial marriage or pro-civil rights. LGBT[and all the other letters, maybe I should just write queer? I don't know what the preferred term is] rights are the civil rights battle of our generation. Legal gay marriage is the logical and fair conclusion stemming from the beliefs that a) the government has no business dictating people's love lives or sexual practices and b) all people should be treated equally under the law, not just in the narrow, technical sense of "everyone is free to marry someone of the opposite sex" but in the broader and, yes, more liberal sense that "every adult is free to marry whomever they choose".

        Progressives won't "give it a rest already" because it is a fight that needs to be won yesterday--because the the status quo is a gross injustice and a tragic failure of the majority of Americans to tolerate lifestyles, beliefs and behaviors that are different from their own.

          The gay marriage debate is just more politicians trying to divide America even more. GET GOVERNMENT OUT OF MARRIAGE ALL TOGETHER. Let every union be a civil union in the eyes of the law. Let churches worry about marriage, if a gay couple can find a church to perform a ceremony so be it. Marriage is a biblical term and should have no place in american law.

            I wish we had Chick-Fil-A here. I'd totally go buy something.

            The part that drives me crazy is that everyone seems to be thinking they're discriminating against people, or saying anything hateful. Ya know... I've been searching and scouring the web, and I fail to find anything Dan Cathy has said that can be construed as "hateful" towards gays. Being pro-traditional family doesn't mean you hate gays or discriminate against them. I mean, just because I choose to promote and support Primal lifestyle, doesn't mean I hate Veganism. Think about it. If you're pro-choice, does that also mean you hate life? (Well, maybe it does.) Furthermore, I give the guy credit for standing up for what he believes in, as unpopular as it may be. He's not out just chasing the almighty dollar, selling out his ethics for money. That's why I will support Chick-Fil-A.
            Those 2 Chick-Fil-A brothers & their scion are the single richest family in the fast food business. Whatevah. I don't support boycotting them or their biz based on their personal beliefs nor their decisions to publically voice their views on gayness or whatever else they oppose/support... I don't personally support them COZ THEY SELL CRAP & call it food... But I don't boycott them. People are free to line up to buy the crap, they do it everyday. So get in line, kenn

              Also, the more you divide the American public/voters by the "moral" b.s., the more you can keep them from banding together for important things like bank bailouts and sneaking GMOs into the food. The power structure isn't stupid. They want all us crumb snatchers to keep bickering about stupid stuff while they blithely go about raping and pillaging.

                Didn't he say,"I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say 'we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage' and I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."

                That's kind of a douchey thing to say, but that's just my opinion.

                I'm pro-any type of marriage with consenting adults. Even group marriage. Everyone views marriage differently, and people promoting discrimination are A-holes.

                  I would not buy from a business who had used some of their profits to support anti gays etc. if it anything like the UK they probably get massive tax relief on any donations.
                  Live and let live are the rules I live by, as long as there is no harm to others who are we to judge each others sexual preferences etc.
                  Saddens me, all the terrible things going on in the world - kids starving in third world countries etc and people choose to devote their energies and money to trying to prevent gays marrying etc.
                  They really need to get a life. And yes I know everyone is entitled to an opinion - this is mne.

                    Yep...
                    He/they have the right to say it, and donate to those anti-gay orgs.
                    And everyone else has the right to respond to what they espouse.
                    Ain't it grand!

                    I have asked a couple of friends if they would respond the same way if he had made racist remarks instead of homophobic, and if they would feel different if he was donating to the KKK or similar.
                    They admitted that they hadn't thought of it that way.
                    To me bigotry is bigotry regardless of who it is aimed at.

                    Also, I've always thought their chicken sandwiches were kinda gross and bland so it's not a place I ate at anyway even pre-Primal.
                    I tried it once or twice in my life because other people picked it... Bleh.
                    Not good food.
                    But then I have never really liked any fast food, and theirs wasn't 'better' as far as I could tell.

                      +1 Douchey, agreed.

                      Oh & a primal group marriage sounds fun: can we serve raw meat & offal @ the reception & a primal wedding cake or 2 or 3?

                        I have never intentionally bought their sandwiches, mostly because don't buy much fast food. The one time I can remember eating a Chick-Fil-A sandwich is that is what the food was at the end of a 5K I ran 4 years ago. I remember not liking it much, but I don't remember why. Too salty is what sticks in my mind and I do like salt....

                          That's exactly what I thought... flavorless bread, flavorless chicken, and salt. Bleh!

                          Makes me wonder what version of marriage from the bible this guy promotes...
                          Polygamy... lots of that in there.
                          Marrying your dead brothers wife and getting her a son... also in there.
                          Raping a girl, paying her day a bit of money, and becoming her husband... also in there!

                          Not sure where he got the marriage is ONLY one man loving one woman thing.

                                I kind of doubt he had any intentions of actually eating there.
                                More likely he just wanted to start a thread about it to see the fuss.
