Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Aug 4, 2012, 12:10 AM

Other corporations which are "religous" like Chick a Fil, although consumers may not know it, are:

Tyson Foods
Mary Kay
Jet Blue

I just heard this snippet on the local news, right after they covered a protest outside of Chik a Fil.


There were two more corporate names, but I didnt catch them. I will not be flying Jet Blue.

"religious" they call that religion?

4. tyson and Bill Clinton are/were very good friend. Should we throw Bill to the wayside?

By the way, what is your definition of "religious corporations?" I haven't ever heard that phrase before. I'm just curious.

6. It sure is not my definition. thtas' why I put ". It is ridiculous to call them religous!

They are bigots. Religion is not an excuse for bigotry.

5. I knew that Cathy was a fundy long before this controversy began.

I still ate at his restaurants on occasion because I believe that a man's personal beliefs are his own and I shouldn't shun him because I don't agree with his religion. However, when Cathy decided to jump in the middle of the fray and chime in with the bigots against marriage equality, I saw that Cathy apparently didn't care if he offended me and therefore didn't want my money. So if the owners of those other companies want to be fundies, that's their problem, but as long as they keep their mouths shut and aren't overtly offensive, I don't consider their personal beliefs to be an issue.

8. But did you where their money goes?

But what if they use their money to speak?

And it's just the restaurants, there's also the annual football game Chick-Fil-A sponsors.
