Chick-fil-A and the Gay Marriage Controversy

“Everything popular is wrong.” 
--Oscar Wilde

Once again, while uttered decades ago, the words of my gayest of heroes Oscar Wilde, are still brilliant yet simplistic, sarcastically genius, as well as timely, and dead on.

As many of you know, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy recently said that he supports, “the biblical definition of the family unit.”

When I heard this, I thought to myself…

“That’s great Dan.  I think you are a moron who wraps himself inside of some un-Christ-like thinking, but whatever.  Enjoy stroking your poultry, and who the hell cares what the head of a chicken chain thinks anyway?”

Well, smack me in the gizzards and call me Foghorn Leghorn, because evidently, many Americans care what the big rooster in the henhouse of chicken sandwich chains has to say about gay marriage.

Well…many Americans who have an agenda based on immovable opinions, monocular thinking, and my way or the highway philosophies, seem to have a loud and profound opinion on Dan Cathy’s comment.

On the left we have Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, the dago mayor of Boston, Michael Menino, and a growing list of mayors of American cities such as San Francisco stating that because of Dan Cathy’s personal “religious” stance, Chick-fil-A is not welcome in their towns.

Feigned outrage equals hypocrisy, and please allow me to demonstrate.

If the President of the Chicago Bears, Bulls, Cubs, or White Sox held Cathy’s view, Mayor Rahm would not say, “You are no longer welcome in Chicago!!”

If the President of the Boston Red Sox or owner of the nearby New England Patriots held Cathy’s view on gay marriage, Mayor Menino would not say, “Get the hell out of here!!”

Hell no they wouldn’t!!

And the Lesbian and Gay community and activists?  They shriek like infants, screaming….

“We shouldn’t be subjected to this…Keep them out of our town, city, and or burg.”

If Dan Cathy’s comments bother you, just shut the fuck up and boycott Chick-fil-A by not going there.

Speak your point by not eating there, but please, honor their right to do business as you want your rights to be honored, and quit your damn whining.

They have as much right to do business in your town, and ANY town, as you have the right to express your gayness, and yes in my opinion, have civil protections in a union as do a man and a woman.

Now…on the right?

Former Arkansas Governor and incredible growing man Mike Huckabee has deemed tomorrow, August 1st, to be Chick-fil-A Day.  He wants everyone to go to Chick-fil-A and buy a chicken sandwich in support of their principled stance.  Of course…

He then wants you to bring your purchases to him so that in the name of GAWD, he can devour them all.

Sarah Palin and her first dude, whatever the fuck his name is, had a photo op at a Chick-fil-A in Texas, because nothing says trying to remain relevant like buying a chicken sandwich in the name of preventing two guys or chicks from becoming monogamous in the eyes of the Lord.

Oy…What the fuck has happened to this country?

We’re having a fight over gay marriage in a chicken coop, in order to prevent or promote the hens laying eggs together or the cocks crowing all over each other.

I miss you Mr. Wilde…I miss you.

Cheers!!

I've never been to Chick-fil-a and probably never will. But, trying to stop a company from opening a new location in your town because of their politics is ridiculous. They open up a new store, pay taxes, hire people, buy services from other local businesses etc. That's kind of needed in most towns.

If this "controversy" were happening in a year NOT divisible by four, it would be surreal.

As it is, it's probably not the dumbest thing we're gong to see between now and November.

Jayman: IKR? What the hell is wrong with people, especially, those who are allegedly in charge of building thriving cities, and wanting to see people employed? Uuch. Cheers Jayman!!

I've never eaten there because the spelling really bothers me.

Everyone's shrieking these days.

I'm With Stupid said...

Jo: Ha...Yeah, my OCD has a problem with the name as well. And you know? Shrieking and Feigning Outrage have become the two most popular American pastimes. Cheers Jo!!

With Chick-fil-A being a privatly owned company with 4 billion a year in revenue I guess they can do what ever the hell they want. Except have me as a customer.

I'm With Stupid said...

Mike: And Mike, that is perfectly acceptable, and that is exactly what I am saying. Cheers Mike!!

Did you see where the Chick-fil-A spoke person passed away yesterday. Guess the stress got to him.

He has the right to say it. I have the right to not give him my money. That hurts the scum bag much more!

I'm With Stupid said...

Peg: Yeah, I saw that which is sad, but you're right. If you don't like the guy's stance don't eat there. It is as simple as that. Cheers Peg!!
