    Personally, I love a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and waffle fries. However, when your company supports certain groups that might be viewed as controversial, I'd assume you're prepared for possible backlash.

My wife always has to go to Inn-N-Out when we are back in California as well. We see no reason to not go to a business just because they openly promote their religion.
    Was it the Parker hospital?

    Every group is viewed as controversial by someone...
    Is it more important to be free or to be equal?

    Probably so, but I guess I don't remember college students picketing Subway or Wendy's or whatever, maybe they have. Free markets rule!

    Nothing wrong with college students exercising political power to pressure corporations when those corporations spend money lobbying against the students' belief.

    Isnt that the American way?

    Personally, I don't have a problem with chick fil-a, but I wonder why their shareholders think spending corporate money in that manner is good for the bottomline.
    Agree.

    If it was a conservative group of college students protesting Starbucks in Washington state, the conservatives on this board would be all aglow with pride and posts about how great America is.

    Actually, I would find it as ridiculous as protesting Chick fil-a. Seems their time would be better spent studying.

    I have no idea what Starbucks politics are, but I will not spend $4 for a cup of coffee. I prefer my coffee hot and black and drink it at my own home for about ten cents a cup. If I am travelling I will pay a buck for a good cup of coffee at WaWa or 7-11, but I will not pay four bucks for a cup of Joe.

    Privately held company so no shareholders worries

    I think people have too much free time on their hands.

    Holy crap, are you seriously comparing Chik-Fil-A donating money to traditional family values organizations to the Ku Klux Klan? In the first response to the thread?

    I think this shows just how little you know about conservatives. Why would a conservative group waste time protesting Starbucks? Their products are overrated and overpriced, but I can't stop the Occupy-types from spending their unemployment checks there.

    Absurd, this conservative doesn't care a whip about one's corporate policy. Just like I watch Alec Baldwin, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, etc (name your most Hollywood leftist) movies/shows without having a fit on their politics.

    If a owner of his/her company does something against my community standard guess what ? i don't go there.
