Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 11, 2019

The principal of Lusher High School turned down a free lunch offered to the school's teachers by Chick-Fil-A "out of respect to our LGBTQ staff." According to a statement from Dr. Steven Corbett, principal of Lusher High School, Chick-Fil-A's values don't align with the school's. "Out of respect to our LGBTQ staff, we have chosen to not serve Chick-Fil-A at an employee lunch. The #1 rule at Lusher is to 'Be Kind' and we live this motto every day," Corbett said. "Chick-Fil-A has been politically outspoken about its views, and we feel it is not part of Lusher's culture of kindness and community." The free lunch for Lusher High School is just one of many being given to Orleans Parish schools by the College Football Playoff Foundation. According to Tony Fay with the CFPF, this meal is one of several things the foundation is doing to leave a positive impact on the New Orleans community for hosting the Sugar Bowl and College Football Championship.

According to Fay, the foundation will bring teachers food from another restaurant. He said he understands and respects their decision and is just "glad teachers will have a good lunch tomorrow."

Chick-fil-A has donated millions over the years to groups that oppose same-sex marriage. In 2012, the company's chief operating officer criticized same-sex marriage, prompting some politicians to block the chain from expanding in certain areas.

Odd one of the the principal's values isn't freedom of speech. If it was, he'd let the teachers decide for themselves if they want a chicken sandwich or not.

Chick-fil-A is about as good as a fast food chicken sandwich gets.
The waffle fries kinda suck, but the sandwich is not bad.
I also applaud Chick-fil-A for giving their workers Sunday off.
It's not easy to get one guaranteed weekend day off at the low end of the wage scale.

I'm not a fast food eater except for Whataburger, but Chick Fil A's sandwiches are good. They have no dressing, so I put mayo on it. The marinade is tasty and it is fried crispy, yet the meat is moist -- and I never eat breast meat otherwise because its lack of taste an moisture. Somehow they make white meat taste good.

Another thing that impresses me is that their employees are very polite. Of course as I said in my previous post, I don't eat much fast food, so I may not have a large enough sampling to make a valid assessment, but I don't know how they could be any more polite and helpful.

Chick-fil-A has good pickles. That is a big reason their sandwich is better than the rest. And the chicken isn't buried beneath hundreds of chemicals made in New Jersey.

I get coffee at McDonald's from time to time, and sometimes I get a fries. McDonald's fries dipped in in a McDonald's hot fudge sundae would be a world-class desert if McDonald's didn't exist, and it was min-maxed for quality, not profit.

For fast food it's Whataburger or In and Out, but even with them, it has to be when I'm in California. They are great out there, but it didn't translate to Texas. The ones here are not that good. Then Chick Fil A. Those are the only fast foods at which I eat.

#42 I also like McDonald's breakfast The Bacon, egg and cheese biscuit plus the hash browns.

Everything else sucks though. Their fountain sodas are the best though. My wife came across a great article a couple of years ago - headline: Why Does Diet Coke Taste Better at McDonald's?

The write did some research and the results were very interesting. McDonald's uses a very elaborate water filtration system for their fountain drinks. They also go through so much that they order their syrups in the much larger metal drums as opposed to the stuff that comes in cardboard. They take meticulous care of their fountain machines and all new employees are given a full day's training as to how to properly maintain them.

Hands down the best fried chicken you will ever have - it will match anything a high-end restaurant can produce - is Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken.

It's a smaller upper-midwest chain, but damn....seriously good stuff by any objective measure. I grew up on that stuff and the one in Michigan is close enough that we still have it a few times per year and it's always a special treat.

Every single time I go to the one by my mom and dad's house it's lined up out the door. Every. Single. Time.

The bone-in breasts are to die for - just order the 2-piece "snack" pay the extra dollar and make both pieces breasts and get one original and one crisply plus.

I came across this video of some random dude doing a review (he goes with the boneless breast pieces) and his overall experience wasn't great because they messed up his order but his reaction to the chicken itself says it all.

Amusing story - My wife and I met at the beginning of our sophomore year in college. I was at her mom and dad's house the following summer one evening and they decided to get KFC carry-out. Up to that point I'd never eaten KFC because we always had Lee's as it was the closest geographically. I was very much looking forward to having KFC and assumed it would probably be better than Lee's . Whoo boy was I wrong about that. There was no comparison between the 2. So I told my wife (then girlfriend) next time try to talk your family into trying Lee's instead. Well, a couple of month later they followed my advice and Lee's is the only fried chicken they've had since.

Of course he does, but it has nothing to do with Chick Fil A. It is about his ability to cook and smoke/grill meat.

Jeff: Meant to tell you, since you have dabbled with fermentation. I made my normal salsa a few weeks ago. THen I had to leave town suddenly (help Dad during the Dorian) and put it in the back of the fridge. I forgot it was there. I found it about three weeks later. I cautiously tasted it. It was great! The lime and cilantro in it got more mild, yet bolder in flavor, as oddly as that sounds. Much better than a week at room temp. I finished it in two days.

A friend of mine told me a funny story - when he was in college they were bar hopping and at 230 in the morning (alcohol sales stop at 2 in Michigan) the only place open was a small burger chain called "In and Out" (yeah, a lot of fun can be had with that name).

Anyhow, they were in the drive-thru and a delivery truck pulls up and the driver starts unloading boxes. Some of the boxes were labeled:

"Hamburger Patties

Grade D, but edible"

Yup. If ever in the Southeast try Zaxbys, it's great. Blue Bell ice cream and Zakbys are the only reasons to ever visit south.

I'm in the minority on In-and-Out and Chick-fil-A. If freshly made Wendy's spicy chick is miles better, but the best fast food chick is Backyard Burger's blackend Hawaiian. Pretty much everyone makes a better burger than I-n-O.

Pretty sure you can find a Zaxbys in Texas, you wont be disappointed. I think Blue Bell comes from Texas so I know you can find it, I'd imagine you already know how good it is. Backyard Burger is more rare. I think they stretched themselves thin years ago and had to shut down a lot of locations.

You are right about Blue Bell. I've been eating it long before it was outside of Texas. When I first startetd eating it you had to live within a hundred miles of Brenham. My father who lives in Savannah had me bring him some he liked it so well. He even paid for the cooler and dry ice to get it there.

Funny thing about Blue Bell is that people were still begging for it to come back after they shut down because of the listeria outbreak that killed three people. There was a dark humored bumper sticker that said, "Blue Bell -- Ice cream so good people are willing to die for it".

Once again we have a tax payer funded school system taking it upon themselves to make decisions having nothing to do with education and forcing their own values and morals and beliefs onto everyone else.

Oh...that's ok because it's the "right thing to do".

Is it?

Anywhere else other than a tax payer funded school, it would be fine.

They stepped over the line when they chose to not educate students about Christianity, but to teach students they should oppose it.

Whether you agree with Christians or Chick-fil-A is beside the point.

However, I'm sure in that environment peer pressure among the teachers is likely a dominating force so no one would have been allowed to eat.

IMHO, any and every business, which chooses to do battle in 'culture wars', obviously understands the potential for negative reaction by the portion of the populace they have chosen to alienate. These businesses deserve whatever political push-back their position invites.

These businesses have chosen to identify themselves as an "us vs. them" player in the culture wars, and likely have a notion that for each consumer whom they dissuade from patronizing their product, will be offset by another consumer, who patronizes them for their culture war participation.

Those who object, or react, one way or another, to the attendant consumer consequences, are simply bleating "Hooray for our side, your side is bad".

All publicity is good publicity. Some posters here were puppeteered to run out and buy a sandwich, while others chose to resist. The overall effect is cooked into the decision to participate in the culture war skirmish. The choice is a calculated business decision.

Really?

You don't know what conversations students and teachers will have about this.

The school's actions make it quite clear.

The anti-Christian message is there whether they intended it or not.

Good job.

We're getting off point here.

It's not the teachers I'm questioning.

It's the decision of a tax payer funded school to come out against Chik-Fil-A for their religious views.

I understand the whole gay/religion thing is complicated and conflicting legal viewpoints are the problem.

I'm no legal expert but it just seems to me the principal was out of line and played to the politically correct crowd because it was the most expedient.

I am pointing out to you I am not faulting the teachers but the principal.

You're forgetting the atheist whiners who tremble every time a Christian teacher wears a cross on their lapel.

Ohhh....the fearful cross. It might bite you.

Really...Christians should modify their doctrine to say they are "required" to wear the cross like other religions get exemptions.

People drag out the constitution when it suits their needs.

But if I talk separation of church and state I'm a "whiner".

From what I've Christian teachers for the most part have long since accepted the concept of public schools not endorsing or suppressing religions.

Chick Fil A's CEO spoke out on gay marriage. As an American he has that right. But what you and your ilk continue to dishonestly ignore is that his remarks as a private citizen are not Chick Fil A's. They are his.

Yes, Chick Fil A the company, donated to Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Salvation Army whom have been said to be anti-gay. Have you ever put money in the red bucket next to the bell ringing guy dressed as Sanata at Christmas, AU? Well, if you have, you hate gays, too. Do you support Christians whom your party likes to betray as bigots and homophobes? I know you do. You invoke the name of the invisible guy in the sky a lot. So there you go being bigoted, just like Chick Fil A.

What was it your sky god's son said? "If your slate is clean, then you can throw stones", I think it was.

Inclusion?

As harsh as this might sound what Jesus said was accept salvation through Me by admitting you are a sinner or spend eternity in hell.

But love your neighbor is much more acceptable so you can stick with that.

Christians frequently use the phrase "hate the sin, love the sinner"

Works for me.

Sure. You can say anything you want. It's America. Chick-fil-A's CEO and owner also donates a lot of money to anti LGBT organizations.

People who care about the LGBT community have the right to boycott his products and spread the news about how profits from the company are used.

As Americans, it's their right to do so.

Nobody is ignoring that.

Rather, they are aware that his remarks as a private citizens are amplified through expenditure of the money he's earned through Chick-fil-A.

Especially since Chick-fil-A is a privately held company owned by the CEO's family. That means the voice of the CEO and the voice of Chick-fil-A are two sides of the same mouth.

If Chick-fil-A were to go out of business, that voice would be diminished, with less Chick-fil-A money to amplify his message.

Dan Cathy can spend his money on hate speech in America. There's plenty wrong with that, but that's his right. Likewise, consumers can choose to buy chicken sandwiches elsewhere, so as to not have their chicken sandwich purchases fund hate speech.

If you have a problem with informed consumers making decisions they think are in their best interests, then the free market isn't the right economic paradigm for the society you want to live in.

Unless it comes from a Chick Fil A letterhead or official announcement on behalf of Chick Fil A, no he does not speak for the company. It's like him saying he likes crunchy peanut butter, therefore Chick Fil A endorses crunchy peanut butter.

His salary.

If you are implying that chicken sandwiches fund his hate speech, then Ford funds hate speech because their KKK member employee uses his salary to further the Klan. If Starbucks has an employee who spends his money on anti-gay organizations, then Starbucks must support anti-gay causes using your logic.

One more time: Chick Fil A's CEO is a separate entity from the company. He gets a salary from Chick Fil A. How he spends it is his business and is not a reflection on the company any more than the the aforementioned Ford or Starbuck's employee speak for their respective companies because of how they spend their salary.

This ain't rocket science, snoofy.

And now... you're equating the CEO with the line worker.
And you're equating a privately held company with a publicly traded one.
As I'm sure you're aware, after Hobby Lobby, privately held companies like Chick-fil-A are allowed to have religious beliefs and impose them on their workers. (Chick-fil-A doesn't do that, but it shows how the line you want to exist simply doesn't exist.)

Like I said, running on fumes.

Just to pick it apart for you: In terms of CEO worth, salary is usually a tiny portion.
Like Jeff Bezos, whose salary is about $150K, yet his worth is in the billions.
Dan Cathy's net worth is around five billion.
It didn't come from his salary.
It came from his ownership stake in the business.

It's really, really simple:
The money Dan Cathy spends on hating gays comes from his business.

"so Ford must also be a hate promoting organization using your logic."
I never claimed Chick-fil-A is a hate promoting organization.
I simply pointed out the owner of Chick-fil-A uses the profits from his business to promote hate.
And, as any reasonable person can see, if you don't wan't the money from your chicken sandwich purchase being spent by the CEO on things you don't like, then it's kind of a no-brainer to not shop there.

That's the hateful way to look at it. But the logical way is that they have been the most popular fast food restaurant in the last 4 years.

And how does eating there hurt other people? I would think it helps their employees by either giving them over time, or creating new jobs. I can't figure out the petty mindset that wants to hurt a bunch of employees -- including the LGBT ones -- to get at one man. It's stupid. It's petty. And it gives SJWs a bad name.

Seriously, does it make sense to throw hundreds of LGBT employees under the bus to get at one man who doesn't like the LGBT agenda? Not to a rational person, it doesn't.
