Boston Rejects Chick-fil-A! Supports Rights For Gays!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspiration

What wondrous, inspirational news!!

Major props to the city of Boston, who dismantled plans to introduce the ig'nant, no-homo, fast food joint Chick-fil-A into their cobblestone surroundings!

The execs of the super popular restaurant were hoping to bring their waffle fries and special sauce to a spot near Boston's famed and historic Freedom Trail…

But only SOME are free to eat the crispy chicken, right guys? Ha!

The Atlanta-based chicken-sandwich chain is notorious for supporting anti-gay groups, and Chick-fil-A's president Dan Cathy recently said gay marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

In response to this hateful statement, Boston's Mayor Thomas M. Menino expressed Thursday:

“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against the population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion. That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”

Boston has joined the likes of numerous celebrities AND The Jim Henson Company, who have publicly stated they do NOT support Chick-fil-A's prejudice practices.

As much as we miss ourselves a spicy, peanut-oil fried chicken sandwich, standing up for equality, respect, and tolerance is infinitely worth it!

Hooray for gay! Down with Chick-fil-A!

    When the hell are you people gonna realize that there are far more heteros than there are gays. WE CAN AND WILL RISE UP AND RALLY AGAINST YOUR IMMORALITY



  3. 3

    I support Chick-fill-A and will participate in Mike Huckabee's August event supporting the chain. You homo bullies may get some spineless corporations to support you, but I'm going to support the ones that spit in your faces. You, Perez, are an asshole bully.

    Good for Boston. This company may have a right to a discriminatory opinion, but as they have seen, the reaction of a society that wants equality for all, will cost them business.

    Chick-fil-A has not discriminated against gays!!!! They employ them and serve them without question. When are you going to realize that you are the biggest hypocrite of all?? It's funny how it's okay to discriminate against any organization, company or person just because they believe in Biblical teachings , but it's not okay for anyone to disagree with you or your lifestyle. Just because I don't agree with the gay lifestyle doesn't mean I hate gay people, but you obviously hate anyone who disagrees with you!! HYPOCRITE!!!!!!

    Re: rosebud99 – I doubt they're losing much; for every homo supporter who stops buying their food, there will be two from the moral majority who will buy because of the company's stand. And then there will be those who won't care either way and will go there regardless. This is not a win for the pansies.

    Proud to be from Boston and from Massachusetts once again.

    Is this the same city where Joel Ward, who is black, scored in overtime for the Caps to eliminate the Bruins in the first round of the NHL playoffs this year, and Bruins fans took to the social media sites and racially attacked that n**ger jungle monkey? Yeah, great example of how socially progressive and tolerant the city actually is. Major props Boston, lmao. There are always 2 sides to every story, not just the gay one.

    Re: Wrenn – This company gives financial support to organization that push for legislation that discriminates against gays. So, while they may not ask for the sexual orientation of their customers, they do want to see them not have the same rights as everyone else. This is discrimination. And discrimination is hateful.



  10. 10

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Proud pansy right here. Head on into middle America where you can stuff your face full of all the Chick-Fil-A you want… making yourself that much closer to diabetes. Fine with me!

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – couldn't have said it better myself. way to blow this WAAAYYYY out of proportion mario.



  12. 12

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Yes, you are probably right. There are enough people out there who want a discriminatory country who will support them. Equality takes time. Hopefully, a generation from now discrimination will be history.

    People should be given the option to go there or not, without the government making the decision for them. I'm gay, and support gay marriage, but I feel the owner has a right to donate to whomever he wants.

    Would it be right to refuse a business because its owner donates to pro-gay causes?

    Re: SpiceGuy – Actually, chic-fila has MANY healthy options on their menu, a lot more than other fast food places and their food is awesome. they are a private company and can donate money to whomever they want. every cfa i've been in has been very clean, service wonderful and food awesome. love the fact that they aren't afraid to stand up for their beliefs and not cower to you idiots. if you actually read the man's statement regarding his beliefs, you'll see that he is NOT being hateful, just stating what he believes and does not try and insult the opposition.



  16. 16

    Don't be surprised if you see a lawsuit against the city of Boston & Boston losing. You can't protect only certain freedoms of speech. While I am for gay marriage, I am not about to shut down any person that doesn't support it.

    The gays continue their relentless assault on the American people by continuing to shove their gay agenda down our throats. I no longer support gays. I can't support the gay community when all it does is bully its opposition into submission. No thanks.



  18. 18

    Tolerating intolerance is not, in fact, tolerance. It is passive-agressive enabling of intolerance.

    Re: bluedot

    Quit word-smithing. It's one thing to be gay but it's a whole different thing when you attack people because they disagree with your views. Congratulations, you're gay, do you want a trophy?

    i say FLASH MOB a chick-fil-a! with a mob of gay folks, or gay-friendly folks, and commit to invading said store, and just start neckin'!

    You know what, I'm a Christian, pro-choice and I support Gay Marriage. I abhor Chick-cil-A's stance on this and will not eat there. However, banning a place because of their religious beliefs? Are you going to say the same thing about anyone or any company that disagrees with your beliefs?



  22. 22

    Re: david – Yeah, that is a perfect way to get people to accept gays. No wonder people are getting sick of gays. How about just go to work and pay your bills and taxes like the rest of us. We are too busy supporting the government to be staging protests for things we don't like.



  23. 23

    I'm conflicted.
    On one hand, I am proud to be from Boston and know that my city officials are will to take a stand against corporations who donate money to anti-gay groups.
    But I also really fucking love Chik-Fil-A chicken sandwiches and I'm sad I still have to go so far to feed that craving.
    But hopefully more cities will take similar stand and the company will reassess their stands.

    Chic-Fil-A donated money to Exodus International, which was PUSHING to release the KILL THE GAYS bill in Uganda!

    Wow it's nice to see how many people on here are homophobic and down right nasty. The comments do not portray God's love at all. Don't pretend to be a Christian if you have no idea what it really means to be one. God loves all people, for they are his children. I find that there is more important things in this world to worry about rather than attacking each other, whatever happened to peace and love?

    I don't understand how people are still homophobic in this day and age. Get over it, people come in all sorts of genders and sexual orientations, we no longer need to ascribed to a pathetic, heteronormative and hegemonic binary of gender and sexuality. The GLBTTIQ community has to continually push for their rights because they are constantly faced with oppression in all sectors of social life. Its the same with those who have to push for their rights because they are not able-bodied, or because they are considered an ethnic or racial minority. Hatred and intolerance is instilled in Western Nations if you're not white, middle-classed and male, and we need to continually fight back so everyone is equal.

    Re: Lady Who? – Agreed. Religion has unforunately caused most conflict and wars, which is a shame because its suppose to teach love and kindness.

    Re: KatieRe: M – I know right? It shouldn't matter what gender, race, ethnicity, age, class, sexual orientation, what should matter is fair and equal treatment of everyone.



  29. 29

    This is upsetting…very upsetting.
    It appears that Chick-fil-A is being persecuted for their beliefs, NOT their actions.
    They follow all laws, do not discriminate in their hiring or promoting to manager and higher and certainly do not discriminate in who they serve.
    So because management believes that homosexuality is wrong, they will be punished.
    That is unfortunate because someday anyone of us may have beliefs that someone will disagree with and we may be punished for that. It, very simply, is not right, not American and most gays would probably agree if they know the whole story.



  30. 30

    Chick-fil-A (stupid ass name btw) can believe whatever they want and support anti-gay, anti-straight, anti-alien campaigns for all I care once they are willing to take their slaps! I am not from nor do I live in the U.S but I do visit it regularly and I for one will never support their franchise.

    Funny. I always thought you were gay. Your posts always sound so whiny & pitiful. Still on here with your multiple aliases?

    It's the cleanest fast food place in the world. Good school kids that fear God and have to keep their grades up to continue working there. Not like every single other fast food joint that has baboons working…



  33. 33

    Interesting how the gays are all for equality then turn around and discriminate against anyone that doesn't agree with them.

    I respect LGBT opinion even if I do not agree with them, and so should LGBT ACCEPT THE OPINION OF THE AMERICAN MAJORITY,…especially this Moreno lawyer who tries to make a name for himself…by picking up on a controversial issue.
    We are a nation of diversity and we should learn to disagree in a MORE AGREEABLE WAY, without hurting and harming each other. We can do better than that.
    In an America where more than 65% of the people believe that the normal definition of marriage is "the relationship between a man and a woman," as the owner of Chick-fill-A does, LGBT should be very contempt with their status, without trying to IMPOSE their view of a MINORITY upon the will of a MAJORITY.

    So it's okay for you gays to love whoever they want, but Chick-fil-a can't hire whoever they want? Quit bitching and complaining. Freedom is freedom, theirs should be no different than yours. Quit making gay/anti gay such an ordeal, people are more accepting than you think, and believe it or not, bigger things are occurring in the world. Be gay, we really don't care. I'm all for gay rights. But if you want respect, respect others, and stop acting like such a victim. It's pathetic.

    Actually, this is failing epically. I have 2 friends in completely different states that work at chick-fil-a..they are both always jammed pack. If they lose 10% of their customers in homo filled states like NY/CA it won't make too much of a difference

    We as God loving - God fearing people are aloud to have our opinions just as you are. It is against Gods will to be gay, it says so many times in the bible. Chick-fil-a is a Christian owned place and they are aloud to believe what they believe!!!!!

    I don't care if they are religious or believe in the Santa…. Their lemon aid is freshly squeeze and helps with my kidney stones. The chick, I buy some to reheat the Chrispy chicken taste the same reheated. they've got good quality chicken! They are by far the cleaned company around. It's nice to go places and eat where ppl usually don't cuss and have nose rings. I could careless what the believe…THEY'RE CLEAN

    Re: Katiedora – Why should CFA have to reassess their stance just to make a minority group happy? I'm sorry, but I respect CFA even more because of their undying stance on this issue. It's very refreshing to hear of a company to stand together and not back down simply because others do not agree and more importantly, for our Lord, Jesus Christ! Every sin is created equal, I'm not perfect. I sin, homosexuals sin. I love all of God's children however, I don't necessarily agree with their choices just as some others may not agree with my choices. CFA is not worried about their profits going down because it's all about "Faith before profit" for them. God bless them ten fold! Just as our country was founded "One country under God" we have flourished; we turn our backs on God and look where our country is now.

    As a former supporter of PFLAG and GLAAD, now I finally understand all the anti-gay sentiment out there. These people have no sense of boundaries. They want to rub the faces of the world in their sexuality in vivid, TMI detail.

    Most normal, well-adjusted straight people don't want to turn on their computers every single day, 24/7, to see a blow-by-blow description of their friends' and relatives' sex lives and most intimate moments in graphic detail. Gay people have no such compunction. The higher-brained concept of "discretion" and "don't kiss and tell" escapes them. They don't care WHO they offend by providing way more detail than anyone cares to know.

    The offense isn't about being gay or straight. It's about boundaries, folks. But I have yet to meet a gay person who has ANY boundaries!! That is why now, for the first time in my life, but until my dying breath, I will fight against gay marriage, and against these self-serving exhibitionists' so-called "rights" to do away with any sense of boundaries in this world. NO. NO. A thousand times NO.

    You've finally done it, idiots. You've converted a staunchly pro-gay-rights activist AGAINST your cause. You've gone too far. It's called BACKLASH.
