• My Chick-Fi-A Ethic

    Since at least 1998, I have been boycotting Chick-Fi-A. I know some people just found out recently that they hate gays and are massively fundamentalist Christian, but this has been kind of there thing for a long time.

    Still, whenever I am at a mall and they have someone outside the store giving out free samples, I always make a point to get one. I do this for a lot of reasons. First, even though I am an apostate to Judaism, I still have enough Jew in me that I can’t pass up something that’s free. As Eric Cartman from South Park put it my, “Jew blood won’t allow it.”

    Anti-semetic stereotypes aside, I do love fast food and Chick-Fi-A’s chicken isn’t bad. I know some people love it, but I just think it is pretty good. Good enough to eat for free, but not good enough to over-look their hateful beliefs.

    Which brings me to my final reason for taking their free samples; it costs them money! I won’t give them a dime, but I will take anything they will give me knowing that it costs them at least a few cents. That’s money not donated to Christian hate groups.

    Has Chick-Fi-A been in the news again? Why am I talking about this today? Well, yesterday, my family and I went to a local town festival and one of the many sponsors was Chick-Fi-A. They were handing out free sandwiches so I made sure to grab one. They also handed out free coupon cards.

    This morning, I just so happened to be driving near a Chick-Fi-A and I had that free coupon card in my pocket. So I went to their drive-throw for the first time and ordered my free food. The lady who took my order was very nice and when I asked her what sauces they had she rattled off the list with a smile. I did get the impression that she was surprised that I didn’t know what sauces they had and part of me was very tempted to explain that I don’t hate gays, so I don’t usually go to Chick-Fi-A. But that might have been a bit mean and too Christian of me. So I just decided to write this blog post while eating my free Chick-Fi-A chicken and dipping it in the multiple sauces I asked for which also costs them a little bit of money. Hate tastes good when it is served up with poetic justice.

    1. A company is not a person, it cannot hate gays any more than my sofa can hate gays. And once a gay friend tripped on a corner leg of my sofa and fell down pretty hard.
      But yeah, company execs are not the company itself. I’m pretty sure that the nice lady does not hate gays, the boss of her boss’ boss does – taking it out on her wouldn’t be a very nice thing to do.

      So yeah, you did pretty good.

      1. Your sofa doesn’t donate money to anti-gay hate groups; Chick-Fi-A as a corporation does! Not only do they donate to hate groups and have done s for years, they have been doing it pretty publicly. In fact, they are now known more for their hate than they are for their chicken. When someone chooses to work for this company, they do so knowing what that company’s position is. So I’m sorry, that has to factor in here.

        That particular server may or may not be anti-gay, but if she isn’t then she should be getting a lot of crap from her gay friends.

    2. I don’t boycott anyone, but to be honest, I don’t like their food, therefore I don’t eat there. It’s pretty hard to be universal in a boycott anyhow, for all you know, the franchisee for McDonalds that you just went to gives money to the Westboro Baptist Church.

    3. Deep fried chicken anus and racist BuyBull quotes just aren’t for me. I refuse to clog my arteries for any fairy gods and I don’t drink the kool aid either. Anybody who “loves” fast food loves an early death by heart attack, stroke and/or cancer. But some ppl “love” death and that’s their “right”. Christians welcome death cause they turn into little angels and dance on a cloud…with Jesus. Glory be to the fairy gods.
