If Chik-fil-A uses their Christianity, they could just ask other Christians to be willing to pay a little more for their chicken to stay on Gods good side. Thats what Hebrew National hot dogs does.
Chick-fil-A could take a stand, cut their profit margin, and actually offer part of their menu as family farmed faire.

Oh please, McDonalds is still the poster boy, don't worry. Don't get me wrong...the company really has no obligations, after all, it IS a company. It is just a shame that blind-as-hell right wing evangelicals will gobble down GMO's, HFCS and MSG in a race to the grave/heaven. Evangelical culture is disgustingly ignorant and SHOULD have no place in American politics, the economy e.c.t. but only abstinence will bring its demise.

Well my friend.... I was a christian once..... a long time ago, ... in a universe far away.
... so i think I can provide some answers in defense of Chick-a-fil. Though you have to remember this is from the point of view of the former christian in me.
I noticed most of your passages are from the old testament..... but I was taught that when The Christ came a new covenant was formed.... and all of the old rules didnt apply anymore. You have to admit, ... as far as the old testament is concerned..... how to treat your animals isnt the strangest thing in there.
Also.... even if you were to take the passages at face value...... no where does it say it is a "sin".... it could be interpreted as merely offering guidance on the matter.
I'm not saying I agree with Chickafil, ... but this is how i would have responded 15 years ago.
..... it's like anyone else in life..... as soon as they start making a little money.... ideals usualy go out the window.

I don't believe God ever changed his mind to the point where he thought animal cruelty was acceptable. If anyone has proof of this, then by all means, let me know.
