Actually, Chick-Fil-A is partly to blame for this. If the company did not make religious based discriminatory statements, their employees would not have to deal with those angry customers. They can have their religious beliefs without putting their employees at risk.

Sure, there should be only civil discussions, but on every controversial issue from abortion to gay marriage, there are nut balls which support certain views.

Tolerance Bully ...


While I don't agree with the corporate stance of the Chick-Fil-A, this guy was wrong. Bullying a minimum wage worker that's just happy to have a job in this economy?

I don't support the corporate views of Chick-Fil-A, but, yeah, this guy was in the wrong.
And to top it off, he was the CFO, an executive at a company? Bullying a minimum wage worker?
He got was was coming to him, and I doubt he's smiling much and acting all cheeky now.

I really like that phrase "tolerance bully." May I steal it? It really fits some of the people I've run across who are incredibly intolerant and mean in their cause of tolerance and acceptance. No saying that there is anything wrong with the concept of tolerance but, rather, that you always have those personality types that will go overboard.

I thought that it was the CEO stating his personal view during an interview...how does that translate into the company being discrimanatory? I think this whole issue was blown quite a bit out of proportion.

He should have been a hero and mocked the CEO of Chick-Fil-A. But since he didn't, and chose to mock someone "lesser" than him, he absolutely deserves to have been fired. The CEO represents the goals and ideals of a company, and if he or she acts in a way that harms the company or goes against their ideals even outside of work, they deserve to be fired.

That CEO has donated over 5 million dollars to anti-gay groups.

Why can't he do that with his own money?

The problem is that this age of folks on the web have totally forgotten about responsibility for your actions. You see in the real world, you act all high and mighty or call the wrong person the wrong thing face to face, you might get your ass kicked. The texting and only talking to people online everyday has given a false impression of anonymity so people really think they can just do and say what they want. Then when they try this in real life it comes back to bite them hard. He just so happened to lose his job, hes lucky he picked a young girl to berate, which is why Im sure he was so smug, if it had been a dude he would have gotten fired and a bloody nose possibly. If you dont like Chick fil a , dont buy their food, the end.

The worse part is this jackass will probably sue and not learn one thing out of this...

Here are some of the more poignant quotes from gay employees, many of whom asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation:

"[It's] constantly having people come up to you and say, 'I support your company, because your company hates the gays. It really takes a toll on me."

Wow, yet they have no problem whatsoever taking a paycheck from such a "hateful" company though.

The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.


More likely than not, he violated a clause in his contract. He painted his company in a bad name, and paid the price. He has every right to be a condescending jerk, but that doesn't protect him from being terminated for it.

Legally he can do it, but ethically he shouldn't.When you are in a position of power and responsibility, you can influence people, and he is using his responsiblity to promote discrimination.

Everything doesn't have to be a law to be considered a devious act.

They may not have a choice. And your company shouldn't be generating a hate filled environment to work in.

You can do better than that.

It does matter because he identified himself and his association with his employer and the name of his employer.

This is just another GREAT example of a person who demands tolerance not being tolerant. This is no different than what happened in the late 60's and early 70's when the troops came home and people spit on them. Just like the troops, the worker is doing what they are there to do. They have no say in the corporate policy. They are there to render a service which is to take money and hand the product out of the _

The guy in the video is overflowing with arrogance. This is also another example that people can buy you books, send you to college and you can still be an idiot. Society has told us that education will right all the wrongs. it will make us better. Well, I guess there is a partial truth to that. However, society has failed as teaching the right things. Putting crap into the brain, you get crap out of the brain.

He deserves to be blacklisted as a CFO. It is said that "The truth will set you free". Well, I guess that is correct. The truth that he is a pompous arrogant jerk has set him free from a job.

So on top of being biggoted, they are forcing gay people to work there? That's pretty messed up.

But you can't say 'ethically he can't' without questioning who's ethics we should be following? Who decides what's ethical?

You? Me? Him?


It's an interesting conundrum. Yes he might be funding agencies and causes I disapprove of, but moral objections aside, I can't argue that he can't do exactly that.

And my morality has no precedence or superiority over his.

None of this changes the fact the guy in the video deserves everything he gets for being a knobhead.

Well, the FRC has some pretty crazy positions. One of which included lobbying congress against the condemning of Uganda's death penalty for gays. Perhaps I am just an overly liberal nutjob, but I think it's really immoral to give money to a group that is actively harming people. Put em in prison? I get we are all allowed to have an opinion, but that is just freaking crazy. The CEO is an idiot if he can't even vet the groups he gives money too.

Um....no. Wrong on two points:

1. Chik-Fil-A, despite legal corporate designations, is not a person.

2. The person to blame is the person to committed the act. No one else along the way is to blame. Just him. Sole accountability, and without all the fuzzy logic that blames an entity rather than people.

Doesn't matter, he was off the job and his performance has nothing to do with Chick Filet. If he wants to be an arse that's his pejorative but to lose his job over this, is nothing short of politics. Not saying he was in the right, because I myself have dealt with it on my end, but for someone to get him fired, it's just wrong.


The trouble is he identified himself and his company in the video which he then put on the internet. Had he not drug his company into this mess by name, he wouldn't have been fired.


Yes, he thought 10 minutes ahead not 10 years ahead.

They played that clip on Hannity last night.

You only have to ask one question. Would you want this guy working for your company?

I wonder if he will behave like a pompous arrogant jerk during his next job interview?
