Being stationed in CLNC (that's Camp Lejeune, North Carolina) for 4 years, one of the off-base fast food joints we had was Chick-fil-A. Their chicken sandwiches were decent, nothing to write home about, which is why I never wrote home about them.
However, before going into the specifics, let me ask you; When was the last time you mistook a quick fried chicken breast for a leaf of kale? Chick-fil-A is attempting to stop Vermont artist Bo Muller-Moore from using the phrase "Eat More Kale" because according to their bevy of Corporate criminal lawyers it violates their phrase "Eat Mor Chikin".
If Corproations are people, then Chick-fil-A is an ignorant, authoritarian, homophobic, self-righteous, chicken-shit bully with a cow udder fetish...
Now, to be completely fair the original founder of Chick-fil-A, S. Truett Cathy, appears to be an incredibly generous, hard-working and giving man (the opposite of the Ayn Randian Superman) as he spends time and gives vast amounts of money to charity.
But, just as Polybius described in the cycle of political revolution, once the goodly beloved king passes away or loses control of the realm (or in this case the Corporation) the small elite cadre which eventually takes over doesn't have the same benevolent aspects and descends into tyranny.
Of course, when the Mythical Age of Corporate Self-Regulation occurs we need not worry what a business like Chick-fil-A is doing because every cease-and-desist order or whatever they may be doing, it'll be with our best interests at heart.
