Ed Helms

I Won't Eat at Chick-fil-A

... 'Cause It's Anti-Gay

"Office" star Ed Helms is officially boycotting Chick-fil-A ... claiming the restaurant chain's anti-gay stance has caused him to lose his appetite.

Helms is responding to a statement issued by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy ... who recently told a Christian publication that when it comes to accusations his company is actively opposed to gay marriage, Chick-fil-A is "guilty as charged."

Cathy claims his chicken people support the "biblical definition of the family unit." In fact, Chick-fil-A reportedly donated nearly $2 million towards religious groups that oppose gay marriage in 2010 alone.

The comments clearly didn't sit well with Helms ... who tweeted, "Chick-Fil-A doesn't like gay people? So lame. Hate to think what they do to the gay chickens! Lost a loyal fan."

Helms ain't alone ... the gay rights campaign NOH8 -- supported by stars like Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and the Kardashians -- has also called for a Chick-fil-A boycott.

Best chicken in town! I don't agree with gay marriage so does that make me homophopic? WOW ! I thought over 200 years ago Americans won the right to disagree without being persecuted for it, I guess the history books are wrong.

I don't understand why Chick-fil-A is always under fire for this stuff. They're not the only big corporation who is hugely homophobic. Frankly, it's impossible for someone to boycott every single homophobic business.

Target is now selling pro-gay marriage cards.
Walmart sells things made in China (by child labor).
Apple I-pods, Ipads, etc., all made in China by forced labor......
I'm pretty much against all those things.
But, once in a while I still shop there.

Chick-Fil-A has never, never hid the fact it is owned by management that actually respects the historical value of Sunday...it's closed that day....and it has never hid the fact it is owned by a LDS family. Is this a secret? Why in the world would they alter their personal views? To appease Hollywood?

In fact, they are standing by their beliefs, and their cool chicken salad is fine w/ me. I don' t eat there much.

I do shop at Target a lot. I don't like the gay marriage cards. I don't like the fact they banned Santa Claus Christmas collection bells and buckets. But, hey, they did.

I don't like that Walmart sells so much junk made in China, when it could sell things made in the USA.

I don't like the political views of George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Mel Gibson....yet, once in a while, I will see their films, and put a few dollars in their pockets.

Should I boycott all of them? Ed, let me know.......

Chick Fil A Rocks! The gays are such bullies. No one has a right to their own opinion anymore.

Helms has a right to his opinion, but so does Chick a fil. I don't understand why when someone takes a stand for what they believe, the other side is offended and wants to boycott. Christians don't believe a man and a man should be together. Gays and their supporters do. Why should anybody boycott the company? That has nothing to do with it. You have your opinion. Let them be free to have theirs. That's really what equality is about.

"biblical definition of marriage"? Which one? The one where once a woman is raped she has to marry her rapist? The one where it's ok to have 700 wives?

Just a little confused to the exact definition here.
