Gut Check Poll: To Chick-fil-A or Not to Chick-fil-A?

Gut Check just finished reading about how four dudes have pitched a tent outside a brand-new Chick-fil-A restaurant that's set to open this morning in Des Peres.

Said dudes are determined to take advantage of a company promotion that awards the first 100 patrons at a brand-new Chick-fil-A a one-year supply of Chick-fil-A meals.

We actually got wind of the promotion the other day, when we received a press release from Chick-fil-A's flacks. We figured maybe we'd send one of our photo interns out to Des Peres to shoot a slideshow's worth of pics of whoever's idiotic enough to pitch a tent in temperatures forecast to drop into the single digits.

(Funny thing: Neither intern responded to our e-mail.)

Then we got to ruminating about how Chick-fil-A has been ruffling feathers in the LGBT community (yes, that's a pun) lately.

You see, it has come to light that the company is all kinds of anti-gay: Yep, franchise owners are known to support sanctity-of-marriage groups, and the privately held, Christian-fried parent corporation runs a pro-family, anti-same-sex-marriage nonprofit, the WinShape Foundation.

Now, Chick-fil-A execs want you to know that they have absolutely no problem taking money from L's, G's, B's or T's who want them some chicken. They even made a video swearing to it:

But what do y'all think?

Even the "closed on Sunday" thing is enough to weird me out...


love chick-fil-a? then eat there....ya don't? then don't go there!....for a company that put their beliefs ahead of profits (not open on Sunday) then it looks a though their beliefs are much more important than their profits....simple isn't it!......


What does selling fried chicken sandwiches have to do with marriage, gay or otherwise? Let me be clear--- leave personal values of employees and patrons out of your business plan. The only reason this ridiculously named business doesn't come out and state it's religious orientation is that it would be illegal. Gimme those LGBT atheist Druid Moslem Jewish $$$$$.


Disagreement is not bigotry. Make your point and change hearts and minds through witness and persuasion and dialog, not bullying scare tactics and half truths.
