they aren't donating food to the national aryan nations convention. to equate a pro marriage counseling talk to that of a hate group is faulty reasoning. and negatively provocative.

It's about hatred and rebellion towards God and his Word, and the desire to wipe away everything Christian from existence and from memory.
Their "retreat centers" (for pro marriage counseling as you put it) refuse to counsel homosexual couples.

Who will win? Well, Chick-fil-A loses business, the protesters lose nothing. It all comes down to whether Chick-fil-A values profits or evangelism more.
Well, leave it to someone who has no understanding of Jesus and his teaching to try and use it against a Christian ideology.
Jesus was a Rabbi. As such, he would have taught the Torah in its entirety, without ommitions.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth. 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Now, with this in mind, there are dozens of laws made in the Bible (New and Old Testament) that state homosexuality as well as multiple sexual partners to be wrong and frowned upon by God.
Don't tell us that you know everything that Jesus stated. He preached for 3 years before his crucifition. That leaves alot of room for him to preach the Torah on every Shabbat. But they aren't, so that makes them hypocrites.

Pro-gay...How about anti-moral?
Whoa there ! This is a ''reach'' too far.
Chick-fil-A is a restaurant who offer their meals to consumers in exchange for money. Customers choose to part with their money in exchange for the food provided.
That is where the business/customer relationship ends.
Where the business may choose to distribute their money to is of no relevance whatsoever.

Who the hell are you to define mine or anyone else's morals.
Ummm.... sorry Annee, but isn't that exactly what some posters are trying to do? Define morality for Chik-Fil-A?
Just sayin'.. no offense...
Annee seems to want to restrict the conversation to her own views and ban any counter views. A company such as Chick-fil-A has the right, as a privately held company, to take a moral stand. Those who don't like that stand can take their business elsewhere. Annee should consider that she cannot deny anyone the right to speak their mind.
your entire logic fails once you realize Yashayah never ever contradicts scripture and this is a must to understand to interprete correctly. I will not argue scripture with you. It is pointless.
You want to teach me what you are COMPLETELY ignorant of attempting to place me in a box that you made.
But I am both spiritually mature and wise enough to know the futile attempts at discussing mature matters with you as you play a game very similar to "I know you are but what am I".
Rest assured though, I am not bound by any church dogma or subject to anothers interpretation, but you are it is obvious. You latch onto ANYTHING that fits your latest presupposed venture. There is a reason I avoid you and from here will continue to avoid you. it's an absolute complete waste of time. lol, you do believe in absolutes dontcha?
So I leave you with this logical conclusion based upon your own reasoning and understanding. Poligamy is next. And then Billybob, or sanchez, or chung gets to marry their goat. Because it's the "rights" thing to do.
Don't worry, by then you will have lost the defense of "well, a goat cannot willingly comply" because they are mapping brainwaves and they will easily prove the goat likes haveing sex with billybob sanchez chung (by then they will allow these lovers of the goat to add all their genes to an offspring maybe by donating dna) and everyones right to marriage will be "defined" in it's proper context....i.e., the right to an orgasm with whatever party we so choose.
