  CHICKENED OUT

Youth Group To Stage Protest Outside Chick-Fil-A Grand Opening In CA

Chick-Fil-A is getting burned again by its stance against gay marriage: When the fast-food chain opens its newest location in Laguna Hills, members of Youth Empowered to Act (YETA) will be there to protest.

Starting Thursday morning at 6am, as staffers hand out free sandwiches to the first 100 people who waddle in to the Orange County, CA, eatery, teens from YETA will inform potential customers of the company’s anti-equality stance, and direct them to more gay-friendly establishments.

We’re doubly impressed: Not even the end of the world could have gotten us out the door that early when we were in high school.

      They’re opening a stupid Chick-Fil-A here in Peoria, IL too. I wish we had a big group of protestors to be there when they had their grand opening, but that’ll never happen… Instead, I get to hear things like this from my father, “They really do serve good chicken sandwiches.” And this was after I explained to him that they were an anti-gay establishment…

      I’M JUST REALLY ANNOYED BY CHICK-FIL-A, GUYS. SO LET’S JUST BURN THEM ALL DOWN, OKAY? OKAY.

      Here’s an idea too. If YETA could be the first hundred and when they receive the free chicken sandwiches, they throw them away. Just a thought.

      @John: Sounds like your dad is an ass. I’m assuming you still live at home. Do not worry, when you get old enough to be out on your own and you do not talk to the ass for a year or more, they come around quickly to understand and accepting you because they realize you do not need them and if they want to be ass you do not want them either.

      @Me: Yes, yes, yes. They could put down the protest signs for awhile, make sure that they’re majority of the 100 (I’m trying to be realistic.) And simultaneously throw it in the garbage can.

      Gay is normal. And yet that is not accepted as truth 40 years after the American
      Psychiatric Assn said Homo was no longer a mental disease. Why is this so hard?

      They should really change their name to Youth Empowered to Intervene. I’d feel much more threatened by YETI than by YETA which sounds like an offshoot of PETA.

      There are many hungry and homeless people who would benefit from these free meals. Just tossing all that food isn’t right. They have the time to organize distribution of these meals.

      Think of receiving your chicken from Chick-Fil-A, as being served food by Fox news.

      Ah, so I should fear being poisoned as well as receiving NO nourishment whatsoever from that food then.

      Oooh. I like the idea of YETA collecting all of the 100 Chik-Fil-A sandwiches, and giving them to the homeless.

      Chick-Fil-A causes diabetes and stupidity.
