I am still waiting on a large company to come out and endorse "Christians"! Will it ever happen? Why just do this for the gay community.

I'm not a spambot
I think we have it pretty good, actually.

Sorry, double post.

Triple post... stupid computer.

Maybe it's because Christians make up a majority of the population in the US and aren't being persecuted for their religion.

It's all part of a Satanic conspiracy to make you complain about large companies not endorsing Christians.
This complaint will then make you look like a douche and your co-religionists look like whiny bitches.

Well, Chik-Fil-A is actually pretty tolerable, since the advertising usually doesn't play up the evangelical Christian aspects, and I admit that their food isn't that bad. But I suppose this sort of thing is in the eye of the beholder.

Curves exercise salons. A pity, because their machines work pretty well.

'Eat Mor Chikin' ring a bell?

Will it ever happen?
Look into the early history of the Kellogg Company. Scary stuff.

The Republican Party (they count, right?)

It's not going to happen.
Idealistically, this is because Christians, not being persecuted against in this day and age, don't need people to explicitly support them.
Cynically, this is because it won't raise the company's profile as much to support Christianity as gay rights.
In either case, you're just old news.

CHICK-FIL-A, you hilariously ignorant woman.
Why the FUCK did you think they were closed on Sundays?
7/11/2012 1:25:17 PM
Won't somebody think of the Christians?

@Berny - Chik-Fil-A is the poultry equivalent of McDonald's. They claim to have invented the chicken sandwich, and I swear to GOD they put something addictive on those chicken sandwiches, AND in their chicken nuggets, because for the love of all things holy, those things are fucking delicious.
And waffle fries. They make waffle fries that, when dipped in mayonnaise, are irresistible. And their home-spun shakes. OK, it's finally become clear to me... Chik-Fil-A simply
itself as a Christian company, what with being closed on Sunday and all. They and their cursed delicious food are clearly of the devil, and probably directly responsible for those 10 pounds I can't seem to lose.
I do, however, find their advertising of a cow suggesting that we "eat more chicken" quite disturbing...

I actually those ads to be hilarious. I love the cow calendar.

"I am still waiting on a large company to come out and endorse "Christians"! Will it ever happen?"
Well, once you're actually
- as in abused physically/verbally/psychologically & subject to 'Religophobia' - just as you & your ilk have been doing so to them via
phobia - then maybe, just
, will you garner the merest hint of sympathy from the likes of Pepsico, McDonald's, Disney etc.
...oh, and speaking of the latter, as in leisure parks:
Butlins Holiday Camps.
Every year - at Easter - they hold what is called '
', an annual
Even in my time, when Butlins was more than just Skegness, Bognor Regis & Minehead, at
, post-September (and the end of the official Spring/Summer seasons for regular holidaymakers), they'd have a two week Christian convention.
All part of what is in the contract; no matter who owns the organisation, it must
be called 'Butlins', and host at least
annual Christian festival in perpetuity, reflecting it's founder Sir Billy Butlin's own devout C-of-E Christian beliefs.
Why not Google 'Butlins'; I'm sure they'd be glad of the extra business!
(and there's discounts for those existing holidaymakers with them, who 'recommend a friend'; 'Win-Win' or what?! >:D )
...oh, and there is already:
Have your cake
eat it, much?
I doubt those establishments exist here in the UK (hell, it's only a couple of months ago we got a 'Krispy Kreme' in a shopping mall in my locale! :9 ). But there's always the deli/rotisserie section in my local Morrison's supermarket. Medium roast chickens; 30 mins or so prior to closing, they reduce such (as well as their pies, pasties etc), to as little as £1 each.
That in itself makes this chicken

Well...it would be uselessly redundant because Christianity is universally accepted in society, not marginalized and demonized.
Christians are already endorsed.
7/12/2012 9:29:12 AM
In fact, I don't even feel persecuted after reading this site. Even when people are rude, Christians are still a majority. So, turalura, I don't think you have much place to whine.
7/12/2012 10:01:44 AM
Chick-fil-a's a fast food restaurant that almost entirely just sells chicken products. It's also very, very good.
7/12/2012 10:51:04 PM
What about In and Out?
Also explicitly delicious.
7/13/2012 8:50:49 PM
The problem with these people - at least most of the time - seems to be that they don't see Christians as the majority, since they only count their own (and maybe their neighbour's equally crazy) denomination as Christian. Catholics are half-pagans, Baptists and Pentecostals claim the other one is of teh debbil, Lutherans and Presbyterians are "dead churches," and the list goes on...

Christianity is a choice, and the most popular religion on this planet. Homosexuality is not, and you Christians constantly bully them.
7/16/2012 12:38:47 PM
There's definitely no persecution in America when Christianity has the Republican Party backing it up.
