    ^ That is the weirdest story. Dude is disturbed.

    ETA: The security guard did really, really well – it’s hard to imagine what he may have prevented.

    And…. here’s the reversal!

    Chick-fil-A says it will stop funding anti-gay groups

    The chicken-sandwich chain ignited a furor both online and offline this summer after its COO Dan Cathy said that it was company policy to support “the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.” He stated that in his view, same-sex marriages invite “God’s judgment” and its proponents “have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”

    In response, gay rights protesters launched nationwide boycotts and staged same-sex “Kiss-In’s” at Chick-fil-A stores. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee launched a “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” where supporters of the company’s stance on same-sex marriage descended on their local stores to purchase chicken sandwiches en masse.

    According to the release by the CRA, the letter stated that chain’s charitable wing “is now taking a much closer look at the organizations it considers helping, and in that process will remain true to its stated philosophy of not supporting organizations with political agendas.”

    Based on what I’ve read in your link and on gawker, there has been no confirmation yet from CFA. I hope it’s true of course.

    What will be interesting to see if this does turn out to be true, how enraged the supporters of “CFA appreciation day” will be?

    Hopefully not too enraged, probably don’t need to add stress to their cholesterol and bigotry diets.

    Yeah, it’s an odd deletion considering the tone of the entire thread, and what the owners of Exit Trinity actually said regardless of this employee.

    Disappointing Walker.

    Looks like I have been boycotting them too.

    It is surpring how many businesses have a religious slant when you delve more into it. My insurance agent keeps telling me how active he is in his church and how pro family values and community he is. Maybe I should ask him what he thinks of ‘the gays’?

    There was some similar weirdness with Exit Trinity Realty a while ago.

    It appears Walker deleted all the threads.
