The evangelical right is watching…
Do you really want to abandon them? They have been your customer base since the political left instituted boycotts to your establishments. Can you afford to alienate both sides?
The only thing to be accomplished by riding the fence is that you will get a sore @$$.
IMO, no they can’t afford to alienate a lot of their customer base..
Unfortunately, jangle, the political left targeted Chik-fil-a precisely BECAUSE of the owners’ evangelical Christian beliefs and actions, and their attack has been RELENTLESS, and, I have no doubt, EXTREMELY costly to this company! Chik-Fil-A will not be able to continue fighting the good fight if they are driven out of business by the Loony Left “cancel culture.”
As hard to accept as that is, it is the reality of the world we live in, where the media has joined forces with power-mad Leftist politicians to BRAINWASH the American public into accepting their view of things. Most Americans have NO CLUE what is really happening in their own country and around the world, thanks to the highly-filtered and Leftist-controlled “news” they receive from media that has become little more than the Propaganda Ministry of the Demmunist Party.
Chik-Fil-A is NOT the cause of this insanity. They’re just one more VICTIM of it.
I don’t agree. Chik-Fil-A was doing just fine, in spite of the cancel-culture attack on it. Those of us on the right supported them for being true to their beliefs. True liberals (the ones who believe in individual civil liberties) supported them for being steadfast in defiance of their attackers. And the majority of people who don’t care about, much less follow, all of the political nonsense supported them because they make a tasty chicken sandwich.
Now, they have cast aside the first two groups in the hopes of placating those who can never be placated and hoping to extend their business further into Canada. They will likely pay the prices for this betrayal as they will gain ZERO support from the lunatics on the left, and have no alienated those of us on the right. And, frankly, they deserve it.
Capt: I agree with you, they are not a victim.
Chick Fil A has been named America’s #1 favorite restaurant for last four years & wonder why they would think sucking up to the tyrannical LGBTQ activist mob could possibly make them more favorite than #1.
I didn’t think it was legal for groups of people to gather for purpose of harassing, disrupting, interfering with or protesting against legally operated companies simply because they dislike owners personal opinions re: politics, philosophy, religion or science.
If it is then we should demand laws to ban such protests & interference within 300 feet of company property.
Otherwise, I presume that activist groups could also employ same type boycotts, media attacks, harassment, disruption & protesting on business properties that are owned by LGBTQ or whose owners hold personal opinions in support of LGBTQ re: politics, philosophy, religion or science .. right?
Unless we submit to tyranny & let govt dictate what we think & must believe, then we are all individually & collectively allowed under the constitution to own & operate legal businesses & be protected from harassment, disruption, interference, boycotts & protests to shut down our business or penalize us because of our political, religious or science beliefs & opinions.
Well, we don’t know for sure they were “doing just fine,”captjellico. I imagine it was a challenge to remain profitable while being constantly attacked and boycotted by the Gaystapo and other Leftist LOONS for the “sin” of being Christian, and running their business according to Biblical principles. Sure, they SAID they were doing great–but of course they WOULD say that.
I suspect this decision wasn’t made lightly–it was probably a matter of surviving as a business. Of course the sad thing IS, I doubt this will help, since the Leftist LOONS will not suddenly start patronizing Chick-Fil-A because of this action on their part.
BUT how much costlieness could the left really heap on them, WHEN THE VAST MAJORITY of their customer base is christian?
Plus, like with a school bully, THE MORE KIDS CAVE INTO THEM, the MORE THAT BULLY will push folk around. SO the more companies CAVE INTO the LGBTQ mafia, the MORE EMBOLDENED they get, to bash other companies..
I AM Wondering, WHEN THE HELL WILL we finally get a business, that stands up to them and tells them to BUGGER OFF!!!
Chick-fil-A just killed the goose that laid the golden egg for the company.
Business 101: Never alienate your base.
