God bless this Baptist who truly lives Christian values — there’s a lot more info at the site.
(I hate excerpts — LOL!)
You might want to do a Baptist ping for this article.

My co-workers and I eat a Chik-Fil-A quite regularly. When I drive to work I indulge in their breakfast, and when we have to drive during the work day, our default lunch spot is Chick-Fil-A. In addition to having delicious food, their staff is the most pleasant, courteous, and efficient fast food clientele I have ever met.
I have to say, I am very pessimistic about the moral future of this country. I regularly visit a popular beauty/health product website to read reviews and get recommendations. Today I took a look at its message boards. There was an ongoing discussion about the Chick Fil-A/sodomite marriage issue. Many women were taking part in the discussion, and EVERY ONE sided with the homosexuals. A few were saying how bad it was to have to look at Bible verses on the wall of the restrooms at Chick Fil-A.
Trying to work a stop into my schedule tomorrow — if I can get myself to walk through the West Village.
Dropped $45.00 tonight to feed the family. They were hungry.
Shopping at their online store tomorrow.
The more the queers attack, the more I will spend at ChickFilA. And I let them know that.
I made it a point to eat at Chick-Fil-A yesterday and today. The spicy chicken sandwich is so good and a great value. I think I could eat there every day and I might just do that LOL!! Kids also love the food and I know they are getting a decent meal for a good value.
That is sad about the Bible verses.
I’ve never been in one.

S. Truett Cathy, Founder and Chairman Chick-fil-A and his wife have 3 children. His two sons, Dan, is president and CEO of Chick-fil-A, and Don (”Bubba”), is senior vice president and president of the Chick-fil-A Dwarf House division and vice president of the WinShape Foundation. Cathys daughter, Trudy Cathy White serves as the director of WinShape Girls Camps.
WinShape began as boys and girls summer camps and college scholarship program. It now includes foster homes, a challenge/ropes course, corporate and marriage retreats, and sponsors mission trips both within the United States and internationally.
In 2006, Cathy welcomed the third generation of Cathy family members to the business. Truett Cathy and his wife, Jeannette, have 12 grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren (as of February 2012) and more than 150 “foster grandchildren.”
WinShape also has a sister foundation that was started by Cathy’s daughter Trudy and her husband John called Lifeshape. The foundation hosts three separate ministries: IMPACT 360, The Summit at Fort Payne, and Communities in Transformation (CIT).
Thanks for calling them what they are.
Great information. thank you so much!
ESQUIRE You can get a chicken sandwich anywhere, which may explain your low expectations. Boneless breast. Bun. Blah. But down south, there lives an eye-opener.
A come-to-Jesus sandwich.
The Chick-fil-A. Seasoned, breaded breast served on a toasted buttered bun with dill-pickle slices. No mayo. No sauce at all. Deceptively simple, yet transcendent. The hook is the breading: spicy, with an intoxicating crunch. The meat is always juicy, never chewy. The bun is like lingerie -- there, but not, providing delicious support without obscuring the main flavor. The first bite changes everything you think you know about chicken. And about the need for condiments. --Allison Glock

Just order a deluxe w/ lettuce, tomato and slice of
cheese, with a side of waffle fries and large lemonade.
Couple containers of the special sauce and you got lunch.
Just post the statistics on the damage a homosexual lifestyle has on health.
“The more the queers attack...”
“Thanks for calling them what they are.”
I NEVER let the destructive Left lay the terminology ground rules; a basic and consistently repeated error made by Conservatives.
“Gay” my ass. My Aunt Rose is gay, not pathologically narcicisstic homosexuals.
The Lord is offering us an opportunity to bear witness in an age when bearing witness means true sacrifice. Grace is free, but not cheap.
The family and I just polished off our large Ice Dreams...a great alternative to ice cream on a warm South Carolina evening:o)
This is literally a time to put your money where your mouth is,
Eat more Chik-N.
I like it
Will make it a point to patronize in the future.
In the middle 80s, I was a member of Spirit of Atlanta Drum & Bugle Corps, and we did a show at Chick-Fil-A Headquarters. Fun gig.
Cheer up--the vast multitude of the righteous in heaven and on earth who align with the Word of the Almighty will never be moved no matter how many choose the evil side either willfully or by blind deceptions.
King James Version (KJV)
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
We certainly will.
If it makes you feel any better, my English teacher, Mrs Tweet, said the same thing back in 1963.
It’s been going on a long time.
I consider myself quiet literate and actually hold writing and English lit degrees, so in general I share your concern.
That said, I do not hold cows to the same spelling standards as humans and, therefore, happily eat Chick-Fil-A with a clear conscience.
S Truett Cathy, “It’s Better to Build Boys Than Mend Men”
A definite part of my high school baseball coaching philosophy.
Chick-Fil-A for dinner tomorrow!
I’ve become a huge chick-fil-a fan in the past week!
That was the one book title that jumped out at me!
Cathy is a man? Now I’m real confused!
Click on the link — lots of pictures of him — even one teaching the Sunday School class.
Yes, you are queer. I mean in the old sense: peculiar.
I'll try the spicy chicken sandwich tomorrow. I can ignore the carbs for a special occasion.
I appreciate the Christian family values of this company and I sincerely hope they do not crumble to the pressure of the few loudmouths of society. If they ever get bought out, then I believe it will be the end of their success, I hope it remains in the family for another hundred years!
Clearly the cows were taught using the whole language approach.
I go to the Woodstock Chick-Fil-A in Georgia. This is one of four that has sit down waitress service with difference in menu too. Great southern recipes. Breakfast too. You would love it. If you live in the Altanta area I was told four like it. I do not remember others but excellent sit down. Also I heard one worker talking to a young new worker about the scholarship program. My jaw dropped that was yesterday . Thousands of dollars towards students and sounds like for workers too. What great Christian people. Please support them!
Put your money where your mouth is while eating! Lol! Literally! I can't say enough about this great organization.
“Many women were taking part in the discussion, and EVERY ONE sided with the homosexuals.”
I don’t know if you will think this appropriate or not, but I’ve had some success with minutely detailed descriptions of what male sodomites get up to. The more detailed the description, the more nausea is produced—usually.
That’s true. I can’t call myself righteous, but I can say with certainty that I will never be bullied into going along with the Godless homosexual agenda.
“Gay” is such a pleasant little word....it really doesn’t describe the nastiness and the perversion of what the lifestyle entails, does it?
“Gay is such a pleasant little word....it really doesnt describe the nastiness and the perversion of what the lifestyle entails, does it?”
That’s why I try not to use it, and often try to persuade others not to.
I also resist other euphemisms, such as “sexual orientation” and “lifestyle.”
Same-sex attraction disorder is just what the name implies: a sexual, psychological, and spiritual disorder.
I agree. “Sodomite” works just fine for me.
