Based on appearances, this is a company that knows what it's doing business-wise. But publicly taking a controversial position on the biggest civil rights issue of our time doesn't exactly seem like a smart business move.
I love Chick-fil-A. I truly do. And I have great respect for your values and your decision to be closed on Sundays and Christian holidays. I also love my gay friends. I really do. And I am convinced that loving Chick-fil-A and loving my gay friends do NOT have to be mutually exclusive.
While boycotting an establishment is a valid form of opposition, I'm much more of a sit-in, Woolworth's Lunch Counter type of person. I will not move from my table until you make me leave, and I won't be bribed to eat anything, even if it is free.
I ate at a Chick-fil-A restaurant the other day and my life was transformed. You see, at Chick-fil-A you get so much more than mouthwatering, delicious fast food. In addition to chicken, you also get a whopping helping of evangelism.
Chick-fil-A makes a chicken sandwich so good that footballer Cassanova McKinzy chose a college based on the proximity of said sandwich. So good that some people drive miles to imbibe. So good that God said only straight people can eat them. Wait... what?
