    They want who to stop discriminating against who?

    Jim, if you walked into a Chick-Fil-A, they'd even sell YOU a sandwich. CFA is not discriminating against anybody.

    That's not crazy wacko, it's standing up for their rights.
    You really don't understand the situation at all.

    Yeah, actually I do understand the situation, but you apparently do not. It's not that they won't serve people, of course they will, they're not going to ask for your stance on LGBT rights when you order, but they, as an organization fight to limit those rights rather than minding to the business they are in. If they want to play that way, then they should expect the fight to come back to them. They don't like that part, and perhaps have learned their lesson.

    I never ate at Cick-Fil-A before (once while I was waiting on my glasses to finish getting made in the mall) so now I still won't eat there. Just not a big fan of their food and I try to avoid fast food joints in general.

    I'll be in the minority here but I don't think Chick Fil A had any moral obligation to continue donating in the same manner (or donating to anybody at all, for that matter). Mike Huckabee was the person who rallied the troops several years ago, not the CEO or anybody actually affiliated with the company, so I don't think the company obligated themselves to continue such donations indefinitely. I think people are feeling awfully entitled, especially given that companies having leeway to do what they want with their money is generally a conservative principle.

    Practically speaking, I suspect part of the reason for the change is because of reports coming out that the donations were going to groups that support the death penalty for homosexuality in Uganda. The charge is technically inaccurate (as no donations to any such groups have occurred in years), but it spread like wildfire, so I get it being a potential PR nightmare.

    I don't think they had any moral obligation to continue donating either. I just don't think they should have shouted it from the rooftops.

    I believe they can donate (or not) to whomever they wish as a private company.

    I just think they would have been more honorable to stand for their convictions.
