What did they do wrong? I know that there is a thread similar to this but this is kind of a different question (so please don’t lock it or I will be sad :C )   but really what did they do wrong? It’s not like they said “we should stone gays and not let them into our stores!!” they were simply stating their thoughts,  so here is what I want you to do, this is going to be like a pole I guess, I want you to state what chick fil-a  did wrong. Simple as that
Please no arguing, I just want to see what people think they did wrong

Again please don’t lock this mod it will make me sad :C  it’s not a duplicate

I think the answers for your question can be easily found in the other thread with a bit of reading; it isn't that hard.

But anyway, if you want my opinion: it wasn't wrong to state their opinion. It is wrong to fund anti-gay organisations. Simple as that.

They funded groups who do say similar things though.

im not sure if you cant see what they did wrong or dont want to see. i can see 2 options:

1. you dont really know what they did (and in that case you didnt even read the first thread properly)
2. you yourself would give money to an anti-gay organistion and think its ok.

i wouldnt be too surprised if its number 2 since your the one who started the homosexuality thread, got countered by many people and im guessing you didnt change your mind (or at least tried to understand) even a little bit.

anyway, i probably sounded really mean in this post. thats not what and how i was trying to point it out. what i was saying is that you wont see whats so wrong about what they did until you can understand the other side.

This.

If they didn't hang black people but gave money to the KKK, would it be wrong? Erm, yes.

They donated millions to a number of organizations such as Family Research Council.

Family Research Council was designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty law Center, a nonprofit civil rights organization. The criteria used to list them as such,
"Generally, the SPLC’s listings of these groups is based on their propagation of known falsehoods" claims about LGBT people that have been thoroughly discredited by scientific authorities" and repeated, groundless name-calling. Viewing homosexuality as unbiblical does not qualify organizations for listing as hate groups."
You can read the article for yourself.

Campus Pride released "5 Simple Facts About Chick-fil-A."

1. Chick-fil-A profits fund documented hate groups that aggressively work against LGBT people, advocating for their criminalization, psychological abuse or death.

2. Chick-fil-A profits support the radical-right-wing group Eagle Forum, which supports LGBT people being considered criminals.

3. Chick-fil-A profits support Exodus International, which claims to “cure homosexuality” through psychological coercion of LGBT people. It says LGBT people are “perverse.”

4. Chick-fil-A profits support Focus on the Family (FOF) and its off-shoot group, Family Research Council (FRC), which has been designated as a hate group by Southern Poverty Law Center. FOF aggressively defames LGBT people as a threat to children and FRC spent $25,000 to stop the US Congress from condemning Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” policy that would execute all gay people.

5. Chick-fil-A profits come from YOU. When you choose Chick-fil-A, you help fund hate groups.

These accusations are not denied by Chick-Fil-A.

Seems to me folks are focusing on the wrong bit here. The controversy about the opinions expressed by the corporation are indeed distracting, but the real issue is more basic. It's not about a chicken joint being anti-gay... it's about a corporation having the RIGHT to have an opinion at all. All the arguing simply validates that a corporate fiction (not the CEO, not the employees, but the CORPORATION) should be allowed an opinion. Enough blood has been spilled in the name of the bottom line that I for one resist completely that non-entity like a corporation should have the precedent set that it's views are valid in any way. I shudder at the laws that would come into being when a CORPORATE FICTION is allowed to vote in elections, or demand extraterritoriality, or hire legitimate private armies... No. Just no.
