It's really a bummer that we don't have Chick-fil-A here so that I could boycott them!

I thought you'd appreciate this, Kit!

According to the Huffington Post:

"Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and Fox News host, has had enough of what he called the 'vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry' aimed at Chick-fil-A.

On his Facebook page, Huckabee announced that Aug. 1 will be 'Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,' a day on which he is encouraging people to patronize the fast food chain."

So, according to Huckabee, the vicious hate speech and bigotry is aimed against Chick-fill-A, and not homosexuals. And how nice of him to stir up all the homophobes to buy a lot of chicken in a show of support for Chick-fil-A's policy of hatred and exclusion.

I've always loved the way TomCat puts tinfoil hats on politicians of questionable intelligence. I'm wondering if he'd be able to fashion one for Huckabee using an empty KFC bucket --lined with tin foil, of course!

i just don't feel like even hearing about chickens in sandwiches ever again. . .the whole thing is disgusting and just makes me feel really ill. And i know Jesus and John the Baptist would boycott these chickens in sandwiches outfits and tell all their friends not to go near them. And they would probably all throw up just thinking about it. . .once they were safely back out in the wilderness.

LOL Kit. What a hoot. One could go on for hours about this idiocy. Huckabee doesn't get it at all does he Susanne?

Chuckle, burp. Well, well Scarlet which person are you today? You have my permission to take the imaginary god of your understanding elsewhere.

Thx so much Kit! Gave me a great laugh. Never been to Chickie Land and I know I'm never going now. I happen to be a Christian too but I do NOT judge people. I have some best friends who are gay. Who cares? We're friends. Their sexuality doesn't mean a hill of beans to me. I'm married. So what? Do they care? NOBODY has the right to judge anyone!

Scarlett P. needs to come to grips with the fact that the anit-gay crap came from the Old Testament which is a book of myths based on pagan stories that have been rewritten to suit local ignorant warlords and tribal chiefs in order to fit their own political power agenda. Your Jesus said in the NEW testament , "I Give You a NEW commandment, to LOVE ONE ANOTHER" The Jesus character NEVER condemned Gays. Actually there is no historical mention of Jesus. He was based on older mythical characters. Just like the Virgin birth. The entire bible is certainly not to be taken literally. It's all myth. Read the "THE LAUGHING JESUS" So don't count on Chick Fil A to be blessed for their ignorance.

That’s right Agent Charlie, even Scarlett and Chick Fil A are entitled to their beliefs and opinions, no matter how far up their asses they’re derived from. It’s also a great way for real human beings to find out who these scum buckets are.

‘No Homo Ham’! LMAO. That’s priceless. One thing Kit, don’t tip them off to the satire. The funniest thing is watching the truly gullible twist in the wind.

Scarlett, with statements like that, I wish there was the opposite of a green star! Maybe a black skull and crossbones for poisonous comments.

Poor Scarlett, you think Obama is a liar and yet you call yourself a Christian and pretend to understand what God had in mind when he made us all.I've actually read the bible all the way through and there is plenty there that you do not follow.

Joined Jul 26, 2012, jo M ?? I say YOU are that 'buy-bull' wielding, proselytizing thug and bigot who goes by the name of Scarlett P.

You know, jo M (0)/Scarlett, it's people like you that have destroyed the whole purpose of Care2. It's for people who care about people, not a place to spread their hate. Get it through your head Scarlett, frankly, NO ONE GIVES A DAMN about you and your hate speech. Take it and shove it up your church's........where it belongs.

Chick-fil-A Controversy is a Matter of Life and Death, Not Free Speech Debate

Scarlett, this article has a term for you and your like, you are a MENACE and a CRIMINAL!
It is you who are the terrorists!

Funny that jo M only noticed that Scarlett's comment was missing and then assumed it was some bigot that caused the problem.

It's a problem at Care2 and other comments were accidentally removed from many sites. No one cares what Scarlett has to say, other than the humor it provides for others. You and Scarlett are nothing but a bad joke to many here who actually do care about many things beyond ourselves.

'[CfA CEO Dan] Cathy believes that homosexuals should not exist and that LGBT teenagers should be sent to camps to be shamed into believing that their deepest human feelings of desire, affection, and love are illegitimate. He believes that children should be rounded up, separated from their families, and subjected to a pseudo-scientific treatment that results in psychological and emotional damage that lasts a lifetime.

He believes in disseminating lies about sexuality in order to influence legislation - lies which the Southern Poverty Law Center says "almost certainly contribute to hate crime violence directed at the LGBT community, which is more targeted for such attacks than any other minority group in America."

Believing that a whole group of people should be beaten, imprisoned, and brainwashed - and supporting organizations whose mission it is to carry out this agenda - is not a political belief. These people are a menace. They are criminals. And - I probably shouldn't use this word, but it used to mean something besides "Muslim" - they are terrorists.' [From AlterNet]

Chick-fil-A, or SICK-fil-A, has thru its nonprofit arm given 5 MILLION DOLLARS to HATE GROUPS.
This is not a matter of "Free Speech". It is a matter of, EVERY TIME YOU BUY A SANDWICH AT CfA, YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE STUFFING $$$$$$$$ INTO THE POCKETS OF HATE GROUPS.
For example, the American Evangelical-based organizations that are BEHIND THE "KILL THE GAYS" LEGISLATION IN UGANDA AND OTHER AFRICAN COUNTRIES.

Good point, MJ M: "people like you that have destroyed the whole purpose of Care2. It's for people who care about people, not a place to spread their hate."
Because of the upcoming elections, Care2 right now is INFESTED with Trolls whose SOLE PURPOSE IS TO PERPETRATE HATE; against Liberals, against Democrats and Democratic candidates for office, against Gays, against anybody with a shred of Intelligence... oh yes, and against GODLESS people like me, against the GROWING NUMBER OF ATHEISTS AND AGNOSTICS in the world, coming out and revealing ourselves SHAMELESSLY, ha ha!
These Trolls are being PAID BY THE KOCH BROTHERS -- paid thru the RNC, the Repukelican National Committeee, which is where they all get their TALKING POINTS, which is why they end up ALL SOUNDING THE SAME...
Anyway, back to the subject. Which started OUT, to be SATIRE -- but is actually indicative of something quite serious!
The GOOD NEWS IS, Sick-fil-A IS DEFINITELY GOING DOWN! There is a Care2 News Item to that effect. With a chart! They have WAY, WAY LOST BUSINESS. Just "one" single day sponsored by that Idiot Huckabee, did NOT, could NOT POSSIBLY, make up for all their LOSS OF BUSINESS ON ALL OTHER DAYS.
More GOOD NEWS is, that OTHER BIGOTED BUSINESSES are ALSO DOING POORLY. And, businesses which SUPPORT LGBT Rights, those which are "boycotted" by Million Moms for example, are DOING WELL! You KNOW that the Money lies with LGBT people, their friends and families and neighbors and many, many Allies!!!

One reason that Sick-fil-A is GOING DOWN, is that
STUDENTS on College Campuses all over the country, have initiated PETITIONS demanding that CfA Franchises be terminated on their Campuses and in their Student Union Buildings; or not allowed to start there in the first place.
Students even in HIGH SCHOOLS have Petitions demanding the closure of CfA Franchises in their High Schools! {Sick-fil-A is in HIGH SCHOOL CAFETERIAS???!!!!!}
Students also have Petitions demanding that CfA be not allowed at, or sponsoring, Sports Events.

These are Petitions ANYone can sign -- you don't have to be a Student, or in that City or State.
There are also Petitions against CfA being in Shopping Malls, and other venues.
I don't know how many Petitions remain up -- but I myself have signed, I believe, over 60! of them!

Please go to change.org; then go to Gay Rights. Then "turn some pages" under Recent or Popular.

Sick-fil-A is an Atlanta-based Franchise that was hoping to expand into other venues!
GREAT TIMING, I'd say!
Good Luck with THAT!

PLEASE HELP PARTICIPATE IN THE CHICK-FIL-A BOYCOTT;
by not only NOT EATING THERE, and NOT GIVING YOUR MONEY TO HATE ORGANIZATIONS THRU CfA;

but ALSO, by SIGNING THE MANY PETITIONS at change.org.

Please go to change.org; then go to Gay Rights; then go to Recent or to Popular.
"Turn some pages" because these Petitions have been up for a while.

Quite a number of these Petitions, come from STUDENTS, who of course have LGBT members on their College and High School campuses,
and OBJECT STRONGLY to CfA being there making MONEY off of the students! {Not to mention the BAD NUTRITION! fats and additives!}

Please go to change.org; and sign as many of the Petitions as you feel you have time for!
