Chipotle Pulls Sponsorship of Utah Boy Scout Event
ap ^ | March 19, 2013 | Brady McCombs

Posted on 03/20/2013 12:08:01 PM PDT by george76

Chipotle Mexican Grill has pulled its sponsorship of Utah's "Scout-O-Rama" because of the Boy Scouts of America's long-standing ban on gays.

The popular Colorado-based restaurant chain initially signed on to provide about $4,200 worth of coupons to the Utah Boy Scouts' annual event, scheduled for May 4 in a Salt Lake City suburb. The Boy Scouts' Great Salt Lake Council is one of the largest in the country, with the majority of troops sponsored by Mormon churches.

Lines are drawn. You’re with the homos or against them.

This issue is a winnowing fork.

Are you wheat or chaff?

What with this and the new firearms laws, Colorado seems intent on joining the vanguard of Leftist states such as New York, Minnesota, California and so on.

Personally, I never eected to see it, but if it can happen in Colorado, it can happen anywhere.

What’s next - Texas?

We had Chipotle for lunch — guess it was the last time.

I have no problem with a company remaining consistent. However, this isn’t consistent. You make a commitment to make a sponsorship, you see it through, and then announce that this is the last go. Pulling out before the event is cheap theatrics.

A shame that Chipotle decided to do this, so much for dinner tonight.

The BSA national organization can suffer massive blows, but BSA itself, the various troops and councils, have little need to go debase themselves before corporate policies.

In this case, it’s a small amount of coupons compared to the 15,000 attendees; the same type of pack I’ve gotten from Chipotle for other community events, and pretty much what you’d get if you simply wrote them about your community event.

A bad decision on their part.

That, being the chain that was caught a few years ago with rampant hiring of illegals.

I’ve never eaten there either, and mostly likely won’t.

Can you post up a copy? Is it everybody but Chik-fil-A?

I started a list with retail stores a few years back but after we ran out of names to shop at, I threw in the towel.

It is now economic and cultural warfare everywhere. Go to a Chipole and observe. Turn them in for food handling violations, lack of handicapped access, illegal aliens, signage problems, etc.

Qdoba or Illegal Pete’s is an acceptable substitute....at least as far as food goes. Disappointing move by Chipolte. Have eaten there 4-5 times a month for years......will cut that at least in half ......next time in, the manager will be addressed on the issue.

Their food is really bad for you anyway. I had a bean burrito there about a year ago. I looked it up online later-it had 1800 calories! But no worries about me eating there again, now.

We don’t have Qdoba or Illegal Pete’s here. We have Chipolte and Moe’s Southwest Grill. I usually go to Moe’s since it is closer to my house, but the food is better at Chipolte. I wish Qdoba would make it here. Never heard of Illegal Pete’s.

Not sure about Va where you are, but in (far from the Mexican border) Indiana, it's pretty difficult to find a restaurant of any type without a lot of (probably) illegal Hispanics.

So, you want to FORCE us to accept homosexuality? I, speaking for myself, will die first. Throw me in the fiery furnace.

Oh, and just for the record, will never eat at Chipotle's unless they apologize for their stance on homosexuality publicly.

What needs to happen is for large groups of people to go into these restaurants, make large orders, and then, cancel the order, making the statement that, “Oh, that’s right, this company turned it’s back on the Boy Scouts! I don’t want to do business here after all”

Never eaten at a Chipotle. Guess I never will.

This is why these resturants can do this. The folks that are against the policy are the ones not eating there. They have nothing to lose (at least that is their thoughts).

This should clear up the phony argument about the alleged “Conservatism” of Hispanics on religious issues.

Someone ping me the first time a Hispanic politician stops eating at Chipotle!

I suggest that all Christians refrain from patronizing these progressive establishments. My list “will never go there again” keeps getting bigger. They may change their tune if millions of people stop giving them business.

I went to the website, to the place where you can ask for sponsorship of fundraisers, etc. On the application, it says:

“Chipotle will not support organizations that discriminate against a person or a group on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious belief.

I have read the above guidelines and my request(s) meet the criteria.”

I wonder what the Boy Scouts put on their application. I also wonder why Chipotle didn’t notice a problem until after they had gotten the Boy Scouts’ hopes up. What a fiasco.

How are Chik-fil-a’s burritos?

Liberals preach diversity but demand homogeneity.

In Liberal-Land there actually is no acceptance of diverse opinion.

Everyone must conform to Liberal-Think
Everyone must live in a way approved by liberals.
