Chick-fil-A

NO 'DUCK' FOR US

We're NOT Behind Chick-Phil-A Day!

1225-chick-fil-a-phil-day

They've got A LOT in common (killing poultry, homophobia) ... but the people at Chick-fil-A are adamant the company is NOT involved with a growing pro-Phil Robertson campaign called "Chick-Phil-A."

The Chick-Phil-A campaign is picking up steam on social media ... encouraging people to eat at Chick-fil-A restaurants on January 21st while wearing Duck Commander or camouflage gear to show their support for the "Duck Dynasty" star.

A Facebook page for the campaign says, "Stand for free speech. Sit for good food." So far, more than 40,000 people have already committed to participate

But despite the fact Chick-fil-A knows a little something about anti-gay marriage controversies, the restaurant says the event "is in no way sponsored by or affiliated with Chick-fil-A."

Chick-fil-A says Chick-Phil-A was created by an "independent group" ... though at this point, no group has come forward to take credit.

Cluck. Cluck.

What if Phil had said something like, "Why do you white guys want a black vagina when a white vagina is sooooo much better? " What if he'd started preaching about how the bible is against interracial marriage, what then, huh? Well I got news for you idiots . . . IT'S THE SAME DAMN THING!

This is an opportunity for Chick-Fil-A to redeem themselves and take a public stand away from their hateful image, and of course they won't. I haven't been to Chick-Fil-A since they had to turn food into politics, bad business and oh-so unnecessary.

Chick-fil-a is well known as a gay-hating company. Even though I'm straight I stopped eating there. Food is fine, but the corporations nasty anti-gay stance was more than I could deal with.

There you go again...calling people and organizations names because they don't agree with your perverted agenda. Newsflash TMZ, Phil Robertson and the owner of Chic Fil A do not have a fear of you. They just don't agree with your sick lifestyle.

The bible also claims that slavery is ok. Why don't all you people claiming "the bible says gays are evil" use that to demand slavery be brought back? I know it's scary, but things have changed in the last 2000 years. A man cannot enslave another man anymore and gay people are slowly getting more rights. Deal with it.

People are afraid to say that homosexuality is wrong. Then they will be afraid to say that Islam is wrong. People are afraid to say anything is wrong if it goes against the standard perception and government procedures. Is anyone saying that Obamacare is wrong or that the continued support of the rebels in Islamic nations is wrong?

Where are the big protests about that? All people feel safe to do is go consume some more corporate products in favor of corporate celebrities. You would think that at least Chick Fil A could say that they appreciate the extra business. Even they want to hide from being associated with free speech and protecting traditional marriage.

I think our nation is full of cowards and is falling apart as a result This eat-in is a tiny step in favor of protest but it seems like it will be easily tamped out in the future.

TMZ. Perpetrating hate that is NOT THERE. He did not hate on gays, but anything to perpetrate Obama's agenda, right? And keep in Clooney's good graces?

What a bunch of haters you are . Where you been on this "knockout game"? Would love to hear Revs Al and Jesse on that. No freedom of religion or speech there; just groups of blacks killing whites. See story regarding the carjacking in NJ last week. Wait...you didn't hear? MY SHOCKED FACE.

Get over yourselves. The rest of us struggling to get by because we've been forced to "fair share" our money to pay for other people's ****, and you all are worried about some guy who busted ass to make his wealth...he doesn't live in LA LA land full of plastic and playing pretend for huge amount of that hate money. Piss off.

You want to know why Christians in this country aren't standing for this anymore…..According to the vatican over 200,000 Christians are killed each year because of their faith. Christians are being tortured, raped, imprisoned in the Middle East by the hundreds of thousands each year. It's not being reported. Millions are being displaced. Having to move from their homes. That is the real battle we are facing. The gays should take heed because talk about persecution... The Christian is not what they should be worried about. 37 people killed on Christmas because they are Christians. Maybe the media will report this, but I doubt they will share how massive this agenda is .

They're not homophic!! How ignorant! They are Christians and read their bible and believe in the word of God. They have their right! Homophobic are those whose have phobia about gays and what we feel is not phobia we just see homosexuality as it is a sin! No, no one is perfect but we have our right to believe and follow what we KNOW is right..
