Sell Your Soul for a Chicken Sandwich?

The weight of hate is going to take this company down.  

Here's a simple truth:  When you crap in the punch bowl, even if you boil that punch bowl in Clorox later on, no one is ever going to drink from it again. 

Chick-Fila-A has crapped in the punch bowl, and the Internet has put it on YouTube and Facebook.  Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.

Someone said to me '...he was just voicing his opinion.' Sure. His opinion as a corporation. Corporations are people too, you know.

If I chose to boost the signal calling him out on his bigotry, I'm just voicing my opinion.

Funny how that works.

Sadly, the massive turnout of gleeful supporters on Wednesday's Mike Huckabee-spawned "CFA Appreciation Day" seems to prove your theory wrong.

HuffPo stated that they've lost a good amount of brand loyalty, but again, go look at video of Wednesday. It's depressing.

Even though a slim majority believes we gays should have the right to marry (and be miserable like everyone else...yuk, yuk, yuk), what happened on Wednesday, and what's happening on blogs and social media seems to support the idea that CFA ain't going anywhere.

I've been reading WAY too many comments on FB, and the stupidity, outright lies, misunderstanding of what the 1st Amendment guarantees, misunderstanding of "biblical principles," and general tenor of this whole mess has made me want to chuck my PC.
