What? I don't believe that! In any case, you really should back that up with some kind of proof if you're going to make a blatant statement like that! So, you have proof that Chic fil a fires employees if they find out they are gay?

Yes, I have a comment.



The ACLU protects your freedom through a nationwide network of staffed offices in every state, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. The New York Civil Liberties Union is a state affiliate of the ACLU. This means that the New York chapter of the ACLU is the ACLU.

====================================================

What do you think this means.? "(The larger ACLU, which has been drifting from its once staunch support for civil liberties, has issued no public statement on the Chick-fil-A ban.)"


I think it means that your biased source is trying to make something out of nothing, and some of you are falling for it.

 

The fact is, the ACLU is defending Chick-fil-A. This particular case happens to be in New York, so the New York affiliate is handling it.


Assume nothing. Question everything. And start thinking.

You have a basis for that statement?  You have proof that is what they would do?  What about what a gay chick-fil-a has to say about that?

 

So when people boycott Chick-fil-A, it means I don't get hours. Which means I don’t get money. Not just me, but ALL of the LGBT employees at Chick-fil-A. Yes, CFA hires LGBT people. No one’s been fired for being gay or coming out. It’s a job. A job that can’t be taken for granted when work is scarce across the country.

If all businesses are aware of the rules and treated equally, what is the issue?

Is one is asking for special treatment?


And if one of the requirements is "whites only"?


Do you know if Chick-fil-a had such requirements? If not what is the point of your post??

In the past, Chick fil A closed on sundays. I wouldnt want a restaurant in my airport that wasnt available to my passengers 7 days a week. It doesnt matter why they are closed, only that they do. If they cant meet the 7 days a week requirement, they need to go. maybe its not a religious issue, but a business decision.

 


I would agree if that was the issue , but it isn't. It's a first amendment violation. 

 

I despise the ACLU. However all the free publicity has propelled Chic Fillet to the most profitable fast food chain in America. I love when hate back fires against the lefties. 

 

I'm proud of Chic Fillet and their community minded business practices and how they treat their employees. 


You mean, every employee except their gay employees. Those they fire. 


I agree, if anyone was fired due to their sexual preferences, that is wrong. Do you know that is what happened and I would think that would be illegal.

Whites only policy would be something that we do not want to see. 


Shouldn't equal opportunity rules apply this being at a public municipal airport?  The state of Texas has been taking a close look at similar action by the City of San Antonio.  They have even referred the question to the federal aviation people.

You're right - that was a strange post.
