I can still make an esoteric argument that gay marriage amounts to liberal meddling or social engineering or whatnot, but I have lost my ability to put my soul behind it.

It was a private moment. I ate the sandwich first, knowing that if I was truly full, the logical thing to sacrifice would be the fries. As the salty-sweet crunch melted on my taste buds, I thought about all the calories I had consumed over the years.

Stop Dismissing the Chick-fil-A Fight

Chick-fil-A is a direct insult, and treating it as anything else requires that gay people either in some way say they're not gay, or consent to a belief that heterosexuals have the right to insult us.

We've long known that Chick-fil-A is a Christian-based company. That's joyous and wonderful. And who doesn't support free speech? I certainly do. But the proposal of Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day turned into something awful and misunderstood.

Who The Chick-fil-A Boycott Really Hurts

Good actions frequently involve something bad within them. Rarely (if ever) is an action wholly good without any unintended negative consequences. This boycott is no different.

The Nugget Boycott: Week Two

Some of the money that Chick-fil-A is using to fund these groups came from my wallet, which means I share in this brokenness and violence that has been done in the name of Christ. As a person of faith, I have a responsibility to respond.

Schoolmates, family members, communities of faith and employers reject us. Corporations alienate us by funneling money to organizations that exist to deplete our rights. But Jesus becomes the sustaining bread we need when navigating the wilderness of social and emotional estrangement.

Chick-fil-A Is Not the Issue

Here in the South we are, sadly, used to hearing anti-LGBT rhetoric -- from business leaders, politicians and preachers. It's hardly news, it's hardly surprising and it's hardly ever the whole story.

The truth is, Chick-fil-A should be able to open wherever it wants in the same way that I should be able to marry in any state that I want.

While I don't dispute that corporations, like individuals, certainly have a right to freely support any ideology or issue, it seems to be a bad business model to willingly alienate a large faction of consumers.

There's a point at which a boycott jumps the shark, and when agents of government are discriminating against a business on the basis of political belief, the line's been crossed. At this point, the Chick-fil-A haters have lost sight of what we're really fighting for.

Chick-fil-A: The Right To Be Stupid And Offensive

I won't ever give my business to a Chick-fil-A, and I know that many LGBTs and our allies will also stay away. But Chick-fil-A has every right to be in business, in the city of Chicago and elsewhere. I would never want their bigotry to keep them from getting a business license.

Each time a new Chick-fil-A opens, they reward their first 100 customers with a year's worth of free chicken. LGBT activists/supporters should line up at openings in order to monopolize the year's worth of free chicken, and then donate it to LGBT homeless youth and/or shelters.
