Ah, but therein lies your fallacy. A study was done that showed if you cut hours/days, a great deal of customers who wanted to go on the days/hours you cut will find time to go when you're open.
Two things:

1. Link the study. I'm calling BS.

2. You're saying the CEO closed on Sundays as a master plot to make more money? That was his motivation?

No, I'm sure it was originally done on principal. But it doesn't hurt their profits; its purely principal and also employee-relations.

I'm sorry, I can't link the study so you're free to call BS. We get taught how to run a business in "pharmacy management" at AU HSOP and it was one of the things they taught us.

the question at hand, though, is if you would support the same rights and benefits package for gay employees that you do for straight married couples
Chick-Fil-A has a written non-discrination policy that includes both employees and customers. This policy includes sexual orientation. You can look it up.

I read every word of it.

Answer my simple, direct question. Why can't you link it?

Oh yeah? Do they provide spousal health coverage for the partner of a gay man?

Once again, what they do now as a matter of policy and law is not the issue at hand. The question is whether Chik-Fil-A would support laws that place gay marriages on the same legal and benefits package footing as straight ones.

re: California Chick-Fil-A Offers Free Meals To Gay Marriage Supporters


I guess I'll spell it out...


We were taught it in class. The teacher put up a slide that said "Studys have shown" blah blah blah.

I don't have the link and I seriously am not that pressed for my point to go look for a slide set from a year ago to find her references slide, so I'm conceding your BS call.

My guess is that they do and will obey the laws of the land.

Is there a list of companies that do?

Precisely.

It has the same weight as if I said, "Well I heard one time that blah blah blah."

But the point is moot since you already acknowledged that the CEO didn't close on Sunday out of concerns for profit. He did it out of conviction. So if he benefits financially from his decision, it has nothing to do with his motive for making the decision in the first place.

Yeah, except you or I really gain nothing from winning or losing this debate, I was just attempting to educate you which is apparently a lost prospect. Keep on keepin' on

Decades ago Truett Cathy and his brother opened a 24 hour diner. Each worked 12 hour shifts. They slept in bedroom in a building next to the diner.

At the end of the first week, neither could go another step. So they closed. that Sunday. And never opened on Sunday.

It's good for employees / morale. That said, work is often done at the locations on Sundays (renovation, major cleaning, management meetings).

The religious reason for the closing has simply taken on a life of its own.

Interesting. That doesn't fit the narrative we hear all the time. Thanks for posting.

Stop acting like a child. You lost the debate. You contradicted youself logically. Now you're just being petulent.

Btw, you could have looked up that slide in this amount of time.

Three things:

1. Link?

2. Let's suppose what you say is true. Are you saying that people can't change over the decades? Or that change is bad or implies some type of character flaw?

3. Do you know anyting about Dan Cathy at present? Because you seem to be implying that he is NOT motivated by religious principle, but rather by expediency.

If I had lost, I would think I was wrong. I know I am not and I know you are. I could have, probably, but I really just don't feel like it.

If you accept my premise, I didn't contradict myself. You choose to reject my premise and that's fine. I can't prove it and you don't have to believe me.

No link ..

I have toured CFA HQ in Atl twice. They have the little museum at the beginning that tells the story.

Once, on the verge of total bankruptcy, Mgt met for a "what do we do" conference. At this conference the corporate purpose was formulated:

quote:

"To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us. To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A


Too many focus on the first part of the purpose, not enough on the 2nd part.

Good Lord, what an utterly absurd statement. You think every redneck racist in Mississippi knows he's wrong? Or that he's not wrong as long as he doesn't know it?
