Wouldn’t buy it, wouldn’t eat it.

Being legally married, while family and friends cannot, is bad enough. If those same family/friends were guests at my wedding, I don’t think a sign would suddenly make it okay.

We got enough flack from things like an unplugged ceremony, not inviting kids, and not inviting estranged relatives (MILs idea).

I wouldn’t use a company that is so widely publicized as having those beliefs, and so proud of it. I think their objection to same sex !marriage comes up just about someone mentions that company… 

 

I say find something else, since you obviously care about others thinking that!

Okay, I have to be honest here. 

You can’t have it both ways. 

You can’t profess to disagree with a company and then buy their products. The act has greater gravity than the intent. A sign is only going to emphasize cheap ethics. 

That’s kind of the hard truth, my friend.

Well if you don’t support their beliefs, then I think you should just not use their food at all. Why financially support them if you don’t agree with what they represent and feel so strongly about it that you would put a sign clarifying this? If I was a guest and I saw that sign, that’s what I would wonder anyway.

Your wedding, your choice but regardless of what you feel or believe, if you served that at your wedding and I were a guest, I would think you ignorant or unaware at best and aligned with their values at worst.

If you want to have their food (which is YUMMY!!) I wouldn’t have a sign. Just don’t put the food out in a way that shows their logo. Nobody needs to know that it’s chick-fil-a.

I wouldn’t buy it or eat it, either.

I haven’t eaten there in about 4 years, and won’t eat there ever again.
