The thing is, you can't definitively and authoritatively say that there are other restaurants TCU could've installed that are 100% pro-LGBT. Maybe the Rainbow Lounge?

 

Do we even know that all of TCU and its administration, donors, board members and regents in all departments are pro-LGBT? 

 

And why stop at restaurants? Why not talk about clothing manufacturers, office supply stores and auto makers? Do we know that Daimler-Chrysler or Ford Motor Company have never had anyone with (real or perceived) homophobic views?

 

Are we just assuming that the companies that don't speak publicly on the issue are pro-LGBT?

The thing that annoys me is that GLBT label any Christian objection to their lifestyle as "homophobic and wrong and full force of the law must be used to prevent them from having this belief"...but tell them that Judaism and Islam object to homosexuality just as much or more than Christianity and all of suddent their liberal moral equivalency kicks into high gear and its "well, thats their culture and religion which we have to respect even if we disagree with it!"

Too many people from all walks of life call themselves "tolerant" when the truth is that they only tolerate people who only believe what they do. I'd argue that 99% of people, myself included, are intolerant to many things.

So, Chick fil a is basically the KKK, Jesus had no problem with people sinning, and as long as a group of people claim persecution, they are right no matter what. Got it.

Oh, boy. We are a nation that has been totally deceived.

Great PR for Chick Fil A.  I remember lines around the block last time this issue came up.  Pretty much ensurese they are going to sell a lot of sandwiches the first few weeks of school.

It has more to do with the actions of the company as an institution than it does about the individual agents/employees. It is known that Chick-fil-a (as an institution and not individuals that work there) has given loads of money and support to anti-LGBT groups. It is one thing for an individual to act a certain way and a completely different thing for a group of individuals that make up an institution to collectively act that way.

So? What is the point? Corprorations dont and shouldnt give to social, moral or political causes or organizations? Where do you come from?

Lets even things out here a bit...

I believe that the issue is not so much what employees/management said, but the history of funding organizations that are constructed to go against homosexuality (in certain ways). I don't eat at chick-fil-a anymore for similar reasons. And I am a seriously practicing Catholic.

As for the Christian university part, I'm fairly certain that Christ would have fully accepted homosexuals like he did the marginalized ppl of His time. I'm sure that He would love and respect them for who they are bc God made them who they are.

All of that to said, it's pretty stupid to put up a stink about a Chick-fil-a coming to campus. Just don't spend your money there...

End of rant...

Please don't kill me for my liberal views :)

You are very right in your thinking that Christ would love and accept them. You are very wrong if you think Christ would have condoned their homosexual behavior.

Maybe if Chick-Fil-A had more weiner shaped foods, or if they decided to swear off serving all meat, they could attract either the gay or lesbian crowd, respectively.

Maybe taking veggie patties and infusing them with meat and pumping them with hormones may get the post-op transgender crowd on board. Everybody wins.

Well my daughter (high school senior ) is very supportive of her G/L friends. She works at Chick-fi-a. If a corporate stance offends you, then don't eat there. But I am tired of others trying to force their views on me.

I don't care what anyone's sexual preference is, as long as it's with consenting adults.  If I remember correctly, Chick-fi-a is a privately owned company.  The owners of the company can do what they (legally) want to do with their $$$.

 

I've had friends who are Gay and I respect most of them, but don't try to push me around, it really pisses me off.  Never forget that freedom of choice is part of this entire American Experience (at least in theory)...That said, the LGBT group at TCU looks really stupid and is only hurting themselves on this one.

Actually, it's a fair point. You may choose not to see it as a civil rights issue, but many if not most do.

does chick filet ask customers if they are gay and , if they say yes, management refuses to serve them?

I have good friends who are gay, I accept them for who they are. I like Chick-fil-a and I eat there every chance I get. My gay friends won't eat there, I get it and I don't care. I'm still gonna eat there, get over it, it's awesome. I like their product and I like they stand behind what they believe in regardless if I agree or not.

The funny thing is the only Chick-fil-a in NYC is tucked away in an NYU Jewish Dorm. I think that's pretty funny.
