The Republicans are so toxic that even Chick-fil-A has jumped ship.
Also, Iran does have a history of blocking the internet during protests and limiting internet speeds.

Wendy's and Arby's have always had the best chicken sandwiches. Zaxby's is also better, but I realize that is more regional. To each their own, of course.

These companies should have the right to believe what they want to believe and you have the right to not spend your dollars with them. Alphabet people just need to shut up and let it be. They're criticizing someone for their beliefs yet they don't want to be criticized for their beliefs..

if you sign w a label, you sign away all rights to all of your work. it’s so rare for an artist to own their own music. ever wonder why the chronic by dre is only on apple music and not any other streaming platform? yeah those two could’ve been nicer about the situation, but dude. owning the rights to your own music is SO RARE

cfletch8able (9 days ago)
I am a practicing Catholic and find it confusing/disappointing when mine and fellow christian's views are labeled 'homophobic' simply because we believe that sex is reserved for married persons between one man and one woman. I have no problems, hatred, dislike, and do not practice any prejudice against persons who choose to live their lives contrary to these beliefs. I agree that some Christians practice very non-Christian beliefs in actually being homophobic and hateful towards persons who identify with the LGBTQ community and it is wrong. However, participating in having these beliefs does not mean that we are all 'homophobic', in using the definition of the word; "having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people".

Extremely controversial opinion and I'm sorry if I offend BUT to the people who hate LGBTQ, you can hate the practice and call it a sin, but WHY hate the people themselves? You teach God doesn't hate ANYONE, yet YOU hate people, why? I don't get it
A.M. Hamilton (12 days ago)
The whole Chick-fil-a thing just shows you that no matter what you do, you're never going to win. It doesn't matter what you pick or don't pick, who you support or don't support, you're always doing something wrong according to someone else's opinion because nothing is universal these days. Salvation Army isn't butthurt because Chick-fil-a chose not to partner with them due to anti LGBT+ stuff, they are butthurt that they aren't getting money from them. No matter what they say, they've lost a benefactor.
Everyone needs to chill the fuck out and spend their breathe on other things rather than a fast food chain that sells chicken. You don't want to support? Don't. Don't want them to be in business anymore? Fine, they boycott them, but stop running your mouths on the internet like you're actually taking action on this, when really you're just flapping your gums behind a computer screen because you can. Me? I don't even go to chick-fil-a. Why? Because their chicken sucks. How bout them apples?

Mark Morgan (13 days ago)
Regardless of the donation company is faith-based or not... withholding any donations really hurts everyone. People need to get their head out of their ass, this means fewer people are going to receive help because people just can't realize both sides help. What salvation army doesn't cover, other organizations will cover it. Trying to destroy the salvation army just means you are destroying an organization that helped millions upon millions of people yearly. You are basically destroying this organization that helped millions because they don't believe in your side of POLITICS which to me, is fucking pathetic. This purity test crap and cancel culture needs to go. These people are not helping people, they are hurting people and making the situation much much worse.

Re: Iran - Taxing necessities like food and fuel is a form of regressive tax - meaning a tax that has a larger negative effect on people of low income since it takes up a larger portion of their total income. Makes absolutely no sense to say the tax is meant to help low income families, completely shady.

Phil, do a story about Putnam County Sherrifs Department. They act like they are covering up something they claim to be a simple arrest over a domestic issue. The victim thought it was for a red flag law. The Police kicked the media out and cancel a press conference about the issue, and are keeping everyone in the dark and there have been hardly any facts come out. #supportwhiskywarrior556

Honestly I’m kind of uncomfortable with the mob like power the LGBTQ community seems to have. For a community that celebrates love there’s a lot of hate and anger towards those who don’t agree with them.

Everyone says that Chick-fil-As choice to close on Sunday is only a religious thing, but if you actually learn about why Cathy made that decision it was because the original Chick-fil-A was open 24 hours a day. And Cathy thought that everyone deserves a day to rest. Thus he decided to have his store close on Sunday so that he could rest, be with his family, and attended church.

I've literally been so excited for the Iran news. I live in Iran and my internet has been shut off until today, all contact with the rest of the world closed off and it felt like maybe no one even knew that this happened to us, also the gas wasn't "insanely cheap" to the people living in Iran, 25 cents is literally half of my hourly wages.

TBH, I am Christian, and, while I rarely even eat meat, I occasionally get some grilled nuggets at Chick-fil-A with the fam. I respect those who choose to "vote with their wallet" and opt not to support a business who goes against their values (I did the same with Carl's Jr a few years ago for a local issue.... though, I admit I might not have stood as firm had I actually loved their food.), but for me, Chick-fil-A just wasn't that big of an issue. I went before the controversy, during it, and certainly don't plan to avoid them just because they have chosen to support more socially acceptable charities now! First and foremost, IT'S A BUSINESS. THEY MAKE SANDWICHES, NOT LAWS. I think it's nice that they encourage their employees to be friendlier that other fast food places around here, and that they have a few slightly healthier options. It's cool that they donate to ANY charity, even if it is for PR and a tax break, and are free to donate to whomever they want (other than, like, ISIS or the KKK) without really affecting my life. But those to whom it meant a lot... You do you.

I feel the Iran protesters and the Hong Kong protesters and French protesters along with others around the world have a hell of a lot more moxie than the US. We are the Free Country, right? Many of those people protest even though they know they could die doing so. We have sadly worded tweets, the ‘tit for tat’ that has somehow be viewed as being patriotic. This sickens me.
Back in 2000 when Fox News announced that Bush had won. By the time the celebrations started, it was announced that in fact because it was by a very slim margin, votes needed to be recounted. Then the shit hit fan when the voting debacle started in Florida!!! At that time, Spike Lee made a statement that ‘Americans SHOULD have taken to the streets and demanded the recount’ that was already a Precident but was blatantly being ignored.
I remember feeling shame that I didn’t go fight or march and demand our rights to a fair election.
I am older now and not physically able to march but I look at this country and think about how ‘did it come to this point’ when I am writing letters of hope to the inhumanly treated refugees on on our soil! Yes Amnesty International has reached out to those of us who have written to political, race based and religious based Prisoners in some of the most horrific countries in the world. its time for us to get pissed! Hell, look at those other countries even in Russia, the protesters dare to let their voices be heard no matter where their dangerous civil disobedience may lead!
It’s time we take the words from Twitter and shove them down the throats of our Elected Officials!

It's so disappointing when people relegate push back to Chick-fil-A as "just leftist bullying and propaganda", for God's sake the LGBTQ community just don't want to be persecuted for being born a certain way and don't unanimously identify with leftist ideology. They didn't choose to be LGBTQ, but you can choose to remain a religious bigot. Stop dismissing people for being genuinely offended. People aren't easily offended nowadays, they're finally speaking up! People have always been offended but suffered in silence up until recent years.

1. Chick-fil-a bent the knee Phil, that’s what you’re not understanding. They even stated they wanted to expand to “liberal areas”. And the LGBTQ+made up unicorn genders community will never be happy, they want the company to donate only to the delusional alphabet community.
2. While I think Taylor Swift is an overall ugly and vile human being on the inside as well as her personality just flat out sucks, as an artist, it is good and I support the fact that she got her master copies rights to her music.
3. Disney as a Corp. supports and contributes to the cover up of Epstein’s murder, so nothing they do surprises.
4. Iran. It’s hard for me to feel bad for them with their “death to America” rallies. We are not the worlds police. They have hated us for years. So honestly, fuck them, America first
