I'm not following the story too closely, but you can't help but hear bits on TV, so I am surely missing information. Chik Fil A, for better or worse, is getting tons of free publicity though.
I ate at one for only the 2nd or 3rd time in my life right before all this happened (not my pick). I never thought it was all that great and is pricey for fast food and portions are small too.
I know they close on Sundays for religious reasons and that is fine..maybe even admirable you could say in our greedy/consumer driven culture. (I'm not religious and not anti gay either)
Everyone has a right to their opinions, whether or not you agree. If you don't like Chik Fil A don't go. IF you don't like gay marriage, don't get gay married. I think people should be able to do what they want, so long as it doesn't harm others.
I wouldn't be involved in either side...live and let live I say, and I certainly wouldn't wait in line (or picket) at any over priced fast food joint just to make a point (could be staged for all we know). There are bigger problems in the world right now to worry about.
I'm tired of all these sideline issues distracting people while we are being robbed blind by the government (printing money/inflation/spendi ng) and federal reserve and not dealing with the inevitable fallout of the economic situation. Meanwhile fighting unjust and trumped up wars, violating civil rights, misusing the military, completely corrupt government (both sides), corrupt banking system, widening wealth/poverty gap, high unemployment and acting like an imperialist nation. We can thank W for bringing our nation to the divide we are now.
Who would have thought on 9/12/01 we would be in the position we are in now and so divided over such things?
And seriously, something needs to be done about the non stop campaign cycle. It is out of control. All that nonsense will all start up again 2 mos after the next election.
bah..I usually stay out of these discussions. Stick to the light stuff.
