Comment on Chick-fil-A Copycat Chicken Sandwiches by Missy.

I just want to know why yourself, as well as many others, have boy-cotted Chik-Fil-A for their own opinions and beliefs? If you know the history of Chik-Fil-A, then you obviously know that they are a company founded on Christian beliefs. This has nothing to do with the food they serve. We frequent restaurants and stores because of their products, not what they believe in. This boycott is doing nothing to support the gay and lesbian community, it is only bringing on more advertisement, and more money, to Chik-Fil-A. I don’t agree with their beliefs but they have their right to their opinions. At least they are not hiding what they feel is important to them like most people do under the spotlight. I’m sure the owners of similar fast-food chains would never admit to these types of beliefs even if it were what that believed in. So basically what I’m saying is that why is it OK for the gay and lesbian community feel that what they believe in is right, and if everyone else doesn’t support them, then they should be boy-cotted?

You’re missing the point. Why can’t Chik-Fil-A be against gay marriage? Why? Does it change the fact that they have great food?
