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.

Just maybe if the gays stopped pushing their lifestyle as normal and shoving it in everyones face they would find life a lot easier. Nobody care what you do in your own home, you don't see straight people ranting and raving about their preference.

This Gay Vendetta is getting to be too much. Keep your sexuality to yourselves like the rest of us do. Stop trying to push this down our throats. There are people like me who do believe in what the Bible says about Homosexuality. Doesn't mean us Christians hate Gays, but the sin is wrong in God's eyes.

Not everyone wants to bend down and kiss the feet of gays. What make them so special that everyone has to love them? Because they're different we have to have butt sex with them? Give me a break. If you want tolerance, you need to be tolerant. Not everyone has to like you or agree with you. You need to be tolerant and accept that fact if you want people to be tolerant of homosexuality.

Every Chick-fil-A I've ever encountered has plenty of business. At the malls, the lines are out into the food court. So, who cares if Ed Helms and the Kardashians don't want to eat there. The Kardashians should lay off the fast food anyway.

Rats. I eat at Chick-Fil-A at the local mall cause they have decent food. After hearing about their anti-gay attitude, I won't eat there any more.

My family and I have boycotted that place for years, once we realized it's run by religious right-wing fundamentalists. What they want to do on their own time is fine, but how come they have to be so pushy about it? Is it a church or is it a fast-food joint? Make up your mind, CFA.
