Just ate my first Chik-fil-A an hour ago. Nice breading on the chicken. Got the deluxe, which included cheese, which was a little weird. Still, tasty.

Watched Davy Crockett last night and forgot how sad the ending was. The second film (prequel?) was much more light hearted and actually really funny.

Nice shot of nostalgia straight to the jugular.

Funny how that works.

Kirk seemed well-composed in his debate with Kyle Kulinski at Politicon. Kyle was just tired and maybe drunk/stoned; I would have been, too, going up against a right-wing hack puppet like Charlie. But he delivered his lame right-wing talking points without losing his cool, while Kyle was cranky.

As a capitalist who votes with his dollar, I decided to support this particular establishment after their latest decisions to acknowledge the humanity of my friends and family.

Get involved with politics, and you are either going to piss off the left or right. Chik fil A brought this on themselves.

Galatians 6:7

"Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap."

Chick-fil-a has enjoyed tremendous growth even during the liberal "boycott" years.

Doesn't seem like the liberal boycott hurt them much.

I'd venture to guess they will be opening on Sundays in the near future to compensate for the loss in sales.

Besides...closing on Sundays now just looks like a farce.

We as humans are so good at criticism and tearing people down; it does seem to have an American aspect, but that's hard to be objective on.

The press and much Christian opinion can be far too critical in an unhealthy way (see "discernment ministries"/heretic hunters who criticize every famous minister like Joel Osteen or TD Jakes).

I found myself defending CFA yesterday because I hate the nature of such criticism. But the SPLC is hard to swallow. They throw that "hate designation" around way too easily.

Who is undeserving of SPLC's assigned hate group status?

I don't defend any company slinging around religion to boost their bottom line. It's their right to do so should they chose to. That said, Chick has the best salads in town... they can keep their chicken sandwiches as far as I'm concerned.

I can get 2 McChicken sandwiches and a soda for $2 less than 1 chicken sandwich and a soda at chik fil a and they taste better.

Popeyes chicken sandwiches has caused infinitely many more murders and attacks (committed by blacks) than the joker movie - which was supposed to incite the incel uprising. Guess which fantasy got more media attention than the reality?

It's fun to watch Chik-fil-A continue to prove the hypocrisy and absurdity of America's political beliefs. Both sides now hate them for the same reason, which is "They don't agree with my opinion so they are bad!" I'm actually thinking Chik-fil-A is the bar now...anyone who says they won't spend money there for a reason other than they just don't like the food can now be considered a hate-filled partisan person that should be ignored. In fact, that's a new test when you start talking politics with someone...ask them that question first and if their response is hatred because of opinion, you automatically know to just pass them by.

"Besides...closing on Sundays now just looks like a farce."

So what you are inferring is that if Chik-fil-A doesn't donate to every Christian group in America, then their beliefs are a farce? I'd really like to hear the logic that went into that thought process.

But we were a better country when most businesses did close on Sundays and holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Hum,

"It's fun to watch Chik-fil-A continue to prove the hypocrisy and absurdity of America's political beliefs. Both sides now hate them for the same reason"

You definitely are not comprehending the mindset of the individuals involved.

The level of hatred directed towards Chick-fil-a for supporting "anti-gay" groups is WAAAAY higher than the disappointment many Christians are feeling.

No...Christians for the most part of not hating Chick-fil-a.

If anything they are angry towards the LGBT crowd and far-left liberals for using Capitalism to force Chick-fil-a into compromising their principles.

I guess it only proves their point when people say Capitalism is a tool used against humanity.

I mean...talk about "hypocrisy and absurdity of America's political beliefs"!

"So what you are inferring is that if Chik-fil-A doesn't donate to every Christian group in America, then their beliefs are a farce?"

No. That is not what I am saying.

"I'd really like to hear the logic that went into that thought process."

Contrary to the watered down explanation Chick-fil-a has on their website today why they close on Sundays, at one time it was due to the Christian Sabbath. Their website doesn't mention that but I suspect it might have at one time based on what we know about the original founder S. Truett Cathy.

There is a long standing conflict between the love of money (greed) and Christian philosophy. Jesus spoke on it throughout his ministry it appears many times. "No man can serve two masters". Christian history is fraught with this conflict from the granting "selling" of indulgences in the past to the prosperity gospel today.

S. Truett Cathy chose to close on Sundays and miss out on thousands/millions of dollars in revenue.

The new owners have chosen to abandon Mr. Cathys intentions.

Closing Sundays now is moot.

#32 | Posted by BillJohnson at 2019-11-29 04:55 PM | Reply

Hum,

The new owners have demonstrated they have a different attitude about money than their father.

That's ok...whatever.

Hey...this is America. They can do what they want.

But open Sundays now...it looks silly.

Dan,

This is a big generalization but the way I see it the 80's was a decade I call the great sell out.

Hippies cut their hair and were told "Greed is good" and Christians were told "God wants you to be rich".

It was profit at any cost.

The ends justifies the means.

The 80's were a turning point in America.

"...and Christians were told "God wants you to be rich""

When, exactly, did that stop? Before separating immigrant kids from their parents became the default, or since?
