Not as big a deal as, say, a City Council election. (Palm to face) The state of "news" today ...

This is the "new" Encinitas? Not just another fast food outlet, but one whose president is hostile to members of our community? I won't set foot in this place http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/17/dan-cathy-chick-fil-a-president-anti-gay_n_1680984.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular

Carol; "Huffington Post" . .PUKE !!! I -and ALL my friends WILL make up for your ignorance and intolerance. "hostile"??!! HOW you figure? They adhere to Federal and State "employment" laws! They, like the MAJORITY of CA voters, believe that 'marriage' is between 1 man & 1 woman. They are VERY welcome to the neighborhood and will prosper.

Isn't a shameful situation when the gay, lesbian scream hostility because there are people who disagree. I've been yelled at because I refused to sign a petition when coming out of Target by a young woman asking for signatures. Called a hate monger and probably believe abuse is okay. We will give Chick-fil-a our business. Where is the positive accolades for what this business for their employees? How quick people forget the good when a company, in their opinions, is not politically correct. Shame, shame.. Who is the actual negative side?

Time to get the blinders off folks, check out their benefits and they do adhere to the employment laws. http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Company/Careers-Info/Entry-Level

I went for the first time last week to one in San Marcos to show my support. I was very impressed with the employees, service and enjoyed the food. I pass by the location in Encinitas every day and will make it a regular stop. Gays stand up and take 'pride' in their lifestyle but when an employer supports traditional marriage (as Obama did before he flip-flopped), his business is targeted. How unAmerican is that? P.S. CFA also gives back to the community by offering college scholarships.

Right, Rebecca. You got YELLED AT by someone asking people to sign a petition. You, one of the thousand people they came into contact with, got YELLED AT. I'm sure that happened.

It is indeed very disappointing that our wonderful town of Encinitas will be blighted by the presence of this homophobic Christian fascist business. It will be boycotted by those of us who do not patronize places where the profits goes to the promotion of hate and oppression of fellow citizens who deserve the same rights and equality as everyone else.

It's a fast food chain, they don't need your "support" other than as a chikn' burger consumer. Eat there, if you must, because you want a greasy sandwich, or because the place is convenient, or whatever.... But to go there to "show support" is just the same as advertising your own personal bigotry. Don't deny it either.
