Jessi, I understand that, but the truth is not everybody is qualified for every job. I would never expect to be hired on at Hooters for example. Does that mean I get to sue Hooters?

It is not only that Chik-Fil-A puts money into anti-gay groups (Including money to congress to try and get them to not condemn Uganda's "Kill the gays" bill)

For me this crosses the line. Could you provide some evidence that Chik-Fil-A is really doing this?

Namaste

Well, nobody I know wants to work there. But this economy is terrible. There's only one job for every five unemployed people (At least according to statistics last month). Chik-Fil-A may be bigoted and ignorant, but they still represent thousands of potential jobs that many people aren't receiving equal or fair competition for. One shouldn't be disregarded from a job because of their orientation. If it's a church or religion-related job I'd be more understanding but it's a fast food restaurant that caters to everyone. Everyone should have equal opportunity to work there.

Well, I don't agree with Dan Cathy's position on same sex marriage. I think if two people of the same sex want to get married, so be it. But Chick-Fil-A is a private company and Dan Cathy, as the owner, should have the right to do whatever he wants with his company - including donating millions to organizations who oppose same sex marriage.

My opinion is that the man is allowed to have an opinion and no one should chastise him for having one.  Just because he is the head of a big company then it doesn't mean he has to eat, breathe, and sleep Chik Fila.  He has a brain and can use it.

He didn't say anything about homosexuals being diseased or gross or any of the other hateful things many people have openly said.  He also hasn't stopped gays from working there or eating there.  He just feels marriage is between a man and a woman.

I think the homosexual population is just becoming too militant and looking for a reason to fight someone at this point.  It is kind of an oxymoron because homosexuals are very "be who you are," that is unless you think differently than them.  Then you are homophobic.

Um, actually, yes it does.

Quote
In 1997, three men from the Chicago area sued Hooters after being denied employment at an Orland Park, Illinois, restaurant. Each of them was awarded $19,100. Four men who filed a similar lawsuit in Maryland received $10,350 each. The settlement allows Hooters to continue luring customers with a female staff of Hooters Girls. But the chain also agreed to create a few other support jobs, like bartenders and hosts, that must be filled without regard to sex.[14]

I remember when that happened back then. You may not agree with it, but that's how it is. They can't just NOT hire you because you're the "wrong gender" or "have sex with the wrong people."

It depends on where you live actually. There are no federal protections for homosexuals, and only 17 states along with the District of Columbia have laws banning discrimination based on sexual orientation.

In the case of Hooters would you agree that the majority of their customers are guys wanting to see hot girls?
