Quoting Mc Lovin:" is sooo yummy. I'm eating one of their chicken egg and cheese bagels right now.. mmmmm. I don't care ... [snip!] ... the purple people eater is coming tomorrow to send us all to hell. They make yummy food, no matter how ignant they may be. "
In some ways I agree with that.. On the other hand, if you are strongly opposed to their beliefs, but you keep giving them money, then you're helping them to have a bigger voice to express the beliefs that you're strongly against. (which just doesn't make any sense)..
The people (or corporations) with the most money have the biggest voice.. and I wouldn't want my money going to a cause that really got under my skin (this one does because it affects my mother and many friends .. and greatly affected me growing up as my mother's daughter)... Even if it was really tempting because the food was so tasty.. Fortunately, we don't have a Chick-Fil-A, so I don't have to make that difficult decision. lol.
I have heard a lot of people say that their beliefs don't matter because they're a fast food place, but to me, the fact that they are a business, and a successful one, is why their beliefs do matter because when it comes to political and social issues, money = voice = power.
And if they promote inequality.. I mean, what if they were saying that they don't want women or black people to vote.. Would anyone give them money to promote those causes?
The only reason it matters is because money = voice = power... so the more money they have, the more of a voice they have to promote their political views and beliefs... and if you happen to be strongly opposed to inequality, then it doesn't make sense to help them to promote inequality by giving them money.
And I can tolerate their opinion. They are more than welcome to their opinion and should be free to express it and to work towards whatever they believe.. but since I am strongly opposed to that opinion, I'm not going to help them express it.
...but that's just my opinion..
