Who else is sick of hearing about Chick-fil-A? I know I am. There must be nothing else going on in the national and local media. Thank goodness there aren’t wars, power outages, droughts, and the Olympics going on right now, or else we would be hearing about those things and not about how a known Christian fast food establishment does not support gay marriage.

This is news?

Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays cause they fear the wrath of God. What makes anyone think that they would support gay marriage?

Now I totally and completely disagree with their stance from two different view points. 1. Alienating a large demographic is bad business, duh. And 2. Personally I am a huge supporter of gay rights and civil rights in general. So I will never ever-ever-ever consume Chick-fil-A ever again. (I ate it once in an airport, didn’t think it was very good anyway.)

The cover of today’s NY Post features a huge line at a Chick-fil-A in New Jersey – citing that people were lined up to support freedom of speech. Oh how we love to pick and choose our constitution rights. Say whatever you want people, unless you are gay and you want to say “I do.” Not that I don’t agree that the owners of Chick-fil-A can say whatever the heck they want, but when we open our mouths there are consequences. So they can say that marriage is defined by the Bible, but I can say I am going to spend my fried chicken money elsewhere. (Really it just another reason why NJ is disappointing.)

My favorite part about the whole issue is that I have friends that are sorely disappointed that they are going to have to give up their beloved Chick-fil-A. I feel their pain. Maybe I am so dismissive cause I never had an affinity for their product. I mean if Dunkin Donuts turned around and said that they had a problem with 1/2 Filipino gals from Queens, I would be very sad that I couldn’t get my morning coffee there anymore. (Thank god that will never happen.)

Fingers crossed that the spokespeople for In N Out Burger (a well know and freaking delicious Christian owned restaurant chain) keep their mouths shut on the issue. I would be really upset if I couldn’t get my In N Out on.
