Chick-Fil-A recently came out (pun!) with their position as a company in regards to gay marriage. Why a company feels the need to make political statements, I’ll never know. We get it, Chick-Fil-A. You’re closed on Sundays so that your employees can attend church. Super. I always liked that about you (the craft mega-store Hobby Lobby does the same thing) and thought to myself that if I ever wanted to prepare chicken ‘n pickle sandwiches I would at least get one weekend day off guaranteed. Can’t beat that.
There are lots of people (mostly in the LGBT community and those who support it- I’m one of those supporters) who think this is nutso. Can’t we all just eat gross fast food and get along? Honestly, I can’t stand Chick-Fil-A. Their food is not good. Eating at their restaurants hurts my stomach in ways I don’t feel like getting into because it’s just THAT unpleasant.
What else hurts my stomach like a funky-tasting sandwich? Hate towards anyone.Bigotry is wrong. Duh. I could quote the Bible in regards to this because CHRISTIANS, AS WELL AS ALL PEOPLE, SHOULD BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER. JUDGE NOT, ASSHOLES, LEST YOU BE JUDGED.
Ack. Name-calling. I could delete it but I think I’ll keep it. Stream-of-conscious writing is my thing, after all. I digress.
So I guess it’s okay to make up the rules but then not follow them? I bet the chemical-laden sandwiches from Chick-Fil-A would have been against the law to consume in Biblical times. No apostle would have been able to walk with Jesus if he had to keep running behind a tree to take a shit after eating one of their foul value meals. He’d be all, “Sorry, J, my lunch isn’t agreeing with me.” And Jesus would reply, “I got your some fish and a shit-load of unleavened bread, dude! Why would you swing by a donkey-thru when you know we have to be in Gallelee by seven! Dammit, Jim. And besides, that stuff causes diabetes. If you lose a leg from eating junk food I am NOT going to give you another one. You’re a man, Jim. Not a starfish.”
There wasn’t an apostle named Jim. OR WAS THERE?!!?!
What I really wanted to say was boo on Chick-Fil-A but hey, free speech goes both ways. If Chick-Fil-A doesn’t want you to have equal rights, bummer. They’re dicks, that’s for sure. You can demonstrate your dislike for this by not eating there or protesting your local chain.
Let’s remember this: forty years ago black people weren’t even allowed to dine in the same restaurants as white people. See how embarrassing that is to us stupid Americans when we look back on how we treated people for just looking a little different? It’ll get better. We just have to keep speaking up for what’s right. Chick-Fil-A, you are doing it wrong.
