Everyone here has the right to spend their money or donate it to whom ever they wish. If someone wants to donate to the KKK then so be it, it's not for anyone of us to decide where someone's money goes. Wether you like it or not. It is a free country, atleast most of it still is.

As far as the restaurant in question, all that would matter to me is the deliciousness of the food, and the sanitation practices of their facilities.

If you do not like the Chick-fil-A because it donated money to an organization you do not like, then don't eat there, simple as that.

If they donated to Hitler, to criminals on death row, it doesnt matter it is their money and they can donate it to whom ever they wish.

(I havnt had any Chick-fil-A, but with all this talk I might try it out, and if it is delicious I will report back on this thread lol)

Gay Rights are Human rights.

Factory Farming is a horrible practice:

I think that is probably because it was publicised by CNN, which was the link in the OP.

If some media outlet wants to make a business' donations public, then there's no problem with that.

What I'm struggling to see is what exactly people are complaining about ?

People have the right not to use any business that they may personally be morally against, and they have the right to publicise the facts that led them to this conclusion.


I really can't see what the problem is here as everybody seems to be just about in agreement on this issue, yet we still spending our time debating something that we pretty much agree upon.

Yeah my
still stands.

Putting animals on par with humans is ridiculous.
It is you that are being intolerant of their view points.
Kind of like a fart telling poop that it stinks and should go away.

Their food is not healthy. It's fast food after all. If you want to debate that I'm more than game.

They use factory farming as part of their business model. Want to debate the dangers and ethics of that? Let's go!

What is there to debate?
Do I really care what they sell? No.
Do I care if their food is deemed not health? No.
Do I care if they use farming standard "A" or "B"? No.
Do I do battle with internet tough guys? No.

If you don't like them, their company or their food, don't spend your money there.

That was easy.

You won't find any disagreement from me there, as I am a vegetarian.

I'm wondering whether you are, or whether you prefer your animals tortured and killed in the ''humane'' way ?

So now your main arguments are their food nutrition and source of chicken? Do you recommend McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's, or any of the other fast food chains are any better? Or should they all be boycotted now?

Funny, I was thinking the same thing.
Personally, I know that there is no real "humane" way of killing.

It's up to you to decide what matters and what does not. It's easy for you to ignore, but my concious forces me to realize the concequences of my actions, whether it be factory farming, human rights, or nutrtion.

People can eat meat if they want.

What I can't stand are the supercilious kind of meat-eaters who cry crocodile tears over factory farming and slaughterhouses in an attempt to ease their own nagging consciences.

Either it's acceptable to torture and kill an animal for food or it's not.

You don't understand that a company may use its resources as it sees fit?

And we wonder why America is so borked.

I think all factory farming practices should be boycotted on principle.

As far as nutrition, that should be a no-brainer.

That is good that you realize and confirm that it is my choice and mine alone.
I don't ignore anything.
I just know that animals are a source of food. How they are slaughtered means little to me.
At the end, they are killed as a food source.

Do you understand the difference between a quick death and torture?

I'd say we can solve both problems by just eating breaded gays, but I hear the meat is too sweet. That, and I hear they b!tch too much if their cage isn't fashionable enough.

Animals are tortured in the ''quick death'' process.

In fairness, above all else, I'm sure the animal would like to live and not be needlessly slaughtered.


Your argument is akin to a murderer ''justifying'' his crime by saying ''at least I didn't torture my victim for too long before I killed him''.
