Do you still support Chick-Fil-A after the CEO's comments about marriage?
Comment: GETTING TIRED OF EVERYONE THINKING EVERYONE ELSE SHOULD ALWAYS AGREE WITH THEIR POINT OF VIEW. by
Comment: He can think and feel and say what he wants. but stop trying to make me feel the same or feel less than him if I don't feel the same. by lorie
Comment: I don't choose my restaurants by the opinions of the CEO's. However, I may go to Chick-Fil-A more now because of the media smear campain. by Bob
Comment: Why does this have to be an issue??? They did not say anything that is not guaranteed by the First Amendment. It's all in how you take it. No one is "forced" to eat at Chick-Fil-A. Go eat somewhere else. Done deal. by Lenny
Comment: 1) Chick-fil-A has donated at least $5 million to organizations (including a certified hate group) that, among other things, depict gay people as pedophiles, want to make "gay behavior" illegal, and even say gay people should be "exported" out of America. by Lauren
Comment: I believe in equality for all. by Lori
Comment: Chick is a christian based company and has always been, this is nothing new.And I am going there to eat not get married anyways.. gees by Penny
Comment: Most definitely!!!! by Michelle
Comment: While I respect Chick Fil A's right to free speech, I cannot in good conscience give my money to a company who has given over 5 million dollars towards for causes that promote discrimination. by Robyn
Comment: Went to have lunch today to support freedom of speech, equal rights, and to defy slander bought on by CNN! by Jenifer
Comment: i don't think going to a restaurant or not is gonna change anything. what they really need to be focusing on is making a change legally instead of focusing all their energy to make a point..in the end who are you hurting or benefiting. by not making a big deal about it you can give them less business. but because it's such a big deal they just gave them more business by making it public and giving them attention. The focus is miss targeted and for that i do not support neither nor. by dina
Comment: The CEO has every right to voice his opinion. He is not discriminating in his stores, this is his belief he is expressing and, so far as I know, everyone has a right to their own opinion. by Chlora
Comment: I too support traditional values. Who's bullying who? by Stan
Comment: Its not an issue of straight marriage versus gay marriage. Its an issue regarding our freedom of speech. We ALL have the right to say what we want even if others do not agree with our view. by Stephanie
Comment: Absolutely not by D
Comment: No one has the right to judge or sling crud. All this restaurant is doing is causing publicity for more business. It is called smart marketing and they got away with it. by EW
Comment: Chick-fil-a and the CEO are wrong for having the community against normal people like everyone else i believe in equal rights and everyone should believe it as well chick-fil-a won't change the gay community if anything were taking over one state at a time with or without their support! by Priscilla
Comment: The gay population has aright to there opinion and express it quite often and rather loudly. Why is wrong for someone else to do the same. Rather hypicritical I'd say by Rick
Comment: DON'T EAT THERE NOW, NOR DO I PLAN TO IN THE FUTURE..HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT 1 PERSON'S VIEWS ABOUT MARRIAGE ARE..DON'T CARE...I AM JUST A LITTLE STUNNED AT THE NEWS ATTENTION THIS 1 PERSON'S VIEW ON MARRIAGE HAS GOTTEN..REALLY???ISN'T THERE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO REPORT ON..? by LEAH
Comment: I'm Just there for the Waffle fries. by Christine
Comment: I am glad someone finally stood up for what they believed in. by Mark
Comment: Why are people surprised that a man of faith would believe that the biblical definition of marriage is one man and woman standing before God and taking vows. This is a business with a Christian founder and it has surprise Christian values--they never said gays or people who disagree with them are not welcome. Let's be clear gay is not a race it is a sexual preference--it takes a man and a woman to make a child. Why are people only intolerant and racist when they don't agree with Liberals. Look. at all of the hate speech drummed up. by Ken
Comment: It's not just about the marriage statement. It's mostly that even conservatives have 1st amendment rights. by Nancy
Comment: I absolutely support Chick-Fil-A after comments made. This is a top notch restaurant chain that most others could take notes from. As liberals always claim to defend a person's freedom of speech, the CEO has the right to say whatever he wants. He didn't say anything derogatory towards anybody or any group. He just stated in a generalization, how he feels about a certain subject. It is my view that the mainstream news media has blown this whole thing way out of proportion. by Todd
Comment: who cares we live in the usa we are aloud to have our own opinions.....and chick fil a has always been a religious company and thats what he believes so get over it....there is so much more to be worried about in the world by nicole
Comment: He has a right to voice his opinion just as everyone else does. by Joe
Comment: Whether or not I agree with everything he said, I defend his right to express his beliefs, When I got to CF [281 @ 1604] at 2:30 I counted 50 cars in line for drive thru and I was the 105th customer in the restaurant. I will go back Friday to bust the CF boycott. I love America and I love our Constitution! by Jim
Comment: The comments are his opinion. He never said anything offensive toward same sex marriage. He just said he RELIGIOUSLY BELEIVES marriage should be between man and woman. P.S. the chicken is awesome. by rudy
Comment: I support the fact that everyone has their own opinion & we should respect that we all don't & won't ever think the same (man, that would be a boring world), wether or not I agree or disagree... but I'll still eat there, not for their opinions, but for, well.. lets face it, I like the lemonade & chicken. =/ by Anna
Comment: I support Freedom! First it will be Chic Fil a that is regulated or closed, then who is next??? I don't have to support their choice in order to support their RIGHT to choose! It's not about "gay rights", it's about human rights! by Pam
Comment: Everyone is entitled to their opinion. That is what makes our country great. People bothered by their comments, need to just get over it and move on. by Geraldine
Comment: I ate breakfast, lunch, and supper there today ! by Debra
Comment: Because he is right by Joe
Comment: I didnt ask for a side of opinion with my chicken! Keep your beliefs to yourselfs Chick-fil-a! If he was a real Christian then he wouldnt judge! not going there anymore~ and that is my right! by hollie
Comment: Everyone has a right to their opinion and donate as they please. If someone does not agree with them, they have the right to boycott and protest. All in good taste though. This is getting way out of hand, on both sides.
Comment: It's time to STOP the religious rights hateful and intolerant ways of forcing their beliefs on others. by Roy
Comment: Love those sandwiches, but lovepeople more. I cannot support a company that says it is Christian but does not promote loving all people. WWJD? He didn't say love everyone but the gays. by Elizabeth
Comment: The First Amendment to the US Constitution gives us the right to Free Speech. Those who disagree with that speech are morally wrong in trying to close the business of those of who they disagree. by Joe
Comment: He didn't say anything bad about gays and lesbians. And he's entitled to his opinion. by Cindy
Comment: One man one woman don't need to learn about sin. by Fabian
Comment: We are all equal, and millions of gay Americans should not be discrimnated as second class citizens. Shame on Chick-Fil A for using prejudice words against a minority sector, you have the right to freedom of speach but dont announce your hate to the public. by Johnny
Comment: The CEO of Chick-Fil-A is just another bigot hiding behind religion. by Gordon
Comment: Freedom of speech goes both ways. by Doug
Comment: I dont support hate and prejudice, shame on chick fil A for announcing their hate! America this is not the 1930 we are all equal and are entitled to human rights! by Debbie
Comment: "If a man also lie with mankind, as lieth with a woman both of them have committed abomination..." -GOD by Ang
Comment: If you don't want an answer don't ask a question, if you don't like what they stand for don't tell me what to do. by Maria
Comment: marriage is between a man and a woman by art
Comment: I know that the CEO has his right to choice and beliefs, but I also as a proud gay American also have the choice and rights (even though some will deny) and that will never to step foot into another Chick-fil-A franchise. Side note...It's amazing how very little press is being given to the cities, colleges and universities throughout America that are either not permitting Chick-fil-A to build new locations or universities that are petitioning to have current stores removed from their campuses. by Daniel
Comment: It so sad who someone can proclaim hate to the American public and donate money to hate groups! Its the principal, just picture it if the waffle house donated money to the KKK...what attention that would get its the same! by Jason
Comment: No one force you to eat there, it our choice if you dont like it dont eat their, American will always have hatful bigots! by Mary
Comment: Absolutely!!!!!!He represents the Christian values that the Bible set (per God's word) and the Constitution that guarantees freedom of speech. by Susan
Comment: I was tought to love everyone, why cant everyone else? by Emily
Comment: Smell like bad chicken and hate. I just not going to eat there....am a hetrosexual but I think we should all be treated equal and the same civil liberty..you are born that way! by Phil
Comment: As a gay professional female, I believe that everyone has a right to their beliefs and opinions. If people don't agree, then they can choose to not eat at the restaurant. The idea of the gay community going to Chick-Fil-A on Friday to kiss is ridiculous. This will only feed into the idea that all gay people are perverted. I have children of my own and I would be uncomfortable to see this kind of behavior in any restaurant. I beg the gay community to go ahead and boycott but do it in a mature and dignified manner. That behavior is not representative of all gay individuals. by L
Comment: I have gay friend that who they are the should not have belittled by public discrimination. by Cindy
Comment: I will still eat their just dont believe in Chick Fil A hate principals! by Brenda
Comment: I hate how companies use God name to broadcast hate....they need to get their facts correct and exam their life! by Pete
Comment: Besides marraige between a man and a woman the first amendment is also a factor in this situation. We are free to voice our opinion to stand up for what's right and what we believe in. Both parties are standing up for what they believe in by purchasing food or boycotting. My personal morals and values are through the bible so its obivious what I believe in. by Jackie
Comment: This is America we should be the leader of anti-Hate! by Brandy
Comment: I find this very upsetting, why cant we all be equal? by Farra
Comment: This is why Canada band Chick Fil A in their country- they dont support hate. by Nasha
Comment: I'm a right activist and find this harsh to be happening in America in the year 2012, people learn how to hate. by Josephine
Comment: This mans business will not be effected, If God is for you who can be against you ? by Rob
Comment: hate is denial, how can a major American company support hate? how shameful "true AMERICAN" companies such as Honda and Toyota support gay marriage ....how ironic. by Hilla
Comment: Our country should just adopt the motto: We have freedom of speech as long as Christian values are not mentioned! That pretty much is the way it is anyway! Would the Fox news cast have even mentioned on TV "if you agree with the CEO attend a rally at ChickfilA?" I doubt it. Of course the newscast called for the homosexual population to go on Friday and kiss in oppostiion. Typical! by Cristina
Comment: I dont thnk this is fair to the millions of gay American just picture it if Chick Fil A thought the same about blacks...if this was 1960's am sure he would have! LETS MOVE FORWARD AMERICA by Martha
Comment: No more Chick Fil A for me- am boycotting I dont support hate- reminds me of growing up in Alabama in 1950's! by Harvey
Comment: Me and my Partner who a US Marine eat here all the time- makes you think how they think about us- are we not equal as Americans? A Marine who fights for his country? by Brandon
Comment: I support the first amendment to the constition and freedom of speech. http://youtu.be/jARGmKjJtCo I will go to Chick-fil-A now as often as I can. by Matt

Comment: YOu've gotta be kidding, let's see half those people show up to actually DO something to make San Antonio's most vulnerable safer, better, healthier... Instead they go buy a sandwich and worry about denying people rights. Courageous. by Ren
Comment: grow up Chick Fil A keep your comments to yourself- dont get yourself into trouble. by Sophia

Comment: I think human right and and business should not be connected. by Luis
Comment: "straight" to the ground...it wasnt such a big deal when nothing was said..he expressed his opinion just the way the gay community do. by Peggy
Comment: I'm sure people have twisted Bob's word, has any one heard hate from his mouth? by Zelma
Comment: I am eating there more often by Eric

Comment: Gay or straight we should all haved the right to be happy...that is so uneducated to profes hate!! one of the first amendments they ignore! by Helen N
Comment: whats next attacking other religons? attacking other minorties? by mindy L
Comment: Chick Fil A should not shove their ideas down people throat just like their sandwiches....silly Christian myths are for kids. by Al B
Comment: Regardless we should not spread hate.
Comment: That is his opinion and he has that right to voice it. you can probably disagree with something about every CEO out there today. We have bigger things to worry about. by R
Comment: He has the right to express his personal Christian belief. Everyone has a right to speak their opinion
Comment: CHRISTIAN values? Does that mean that now ATHEISTS are PERSONAE NON GRATAE at Chick-FIl-A? by Michael
Comment: Controversial comments?! give me a break. He said what he believes, marriage between a man and woman is NOT controversial. by Craig
Comment: it's all about free speech and that is just his opinion by Ann
Comment: I do not support any individual or any organization or business who takes a stand to voice views that attempt to discriminate against any group of people. It's unfortunate that he could not keep his personal beliefs out of his business. He has some supporters but has exiled many others. by C
Comment: Everyone has the right to their own opinion.
Comment: Chick-Fil-A is standing up for traditional American values. Good for them. by Jeff
Comment: The lesson to be learned here is to keep religion and politics out of the business world. Your views will inevitably offend someone and in this case, lose business from a large group. If this company/CEO is providing funding support to hate groups, then anyone who could be discriminated against (for race, ethnicity, gender, handicap, or sexual orientation) should be boycotting this business. by Chris
Comment: WHAT ABOUT WHATABURGER? Don't they have a similar stance about gays? After all, they proudly advertise "One nation under God, indivisible"? by Jose
Comment: Everyone's entitled to their own opinions and beliefs and if we condemn them for it then the ones that claim they're for equal rights and freedom of speech are all hypocrites. by Nicholas
Comment: absolutly, these are his beliefs and opinions by Andreia
Comment: He is entitled to his opinion and no one should try to use economic pressure to change his mind. by gerardo
Comment: It's still a free country & we all have freedom of speech. If the gays are offended just don't eat there. You can't MAKE or FORCE someone to believe a certain way @ least not yet! by Jose
Comment: Roy-religious right is NOT hateful, not forcing beliefs on others. Gays have the freedom to choose their lifestyle, but the WORD OF GOD says they won't be allowed in heaven unless they repent. I Corinth.6:9-10 by Maria
Comment: This is the USA. Our troops fight so that we can have freedom. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. by Hazel
Comment: Why is it ok for someone to voice their opinion about being gay and gay pride but it is not ok when a Christian says they believe in traditional family's. This is a two way street and should be free for both side's, they feel they are being judged but yet they are the one's pointing fingers. Who is being judgemental now? by Dani
Comment: Its his right to free speech. People dont seem to be bothered if they were for gay marriage but as soon as someone opposes it they are intolerant. Its absurd. by Jeannine
Comment: The CEO was asked a question. He was just answering. Censorship is becoming more rampant in America and those "backlashing" the CEO may have this happen to them one day. Christans are considered "judgemental" when we speak up for what we believe, but yet others can say what they want and we are told that we need to be tolerant of those beliefs. If the homosexuals and their supporters do not agree with the CEO's comments, just don't eat there! There are other issues and concerns in this country which we, as citizens, need to be concerned about. by Gail
Comment: Being queer is a sin. by lee
