A lot of people are saying that they're going to boycott the company (refuse to buy from them and fight any plans of expansion), while others are going to events at Chick-fil-a stores to show their support of the president's stance.
I'll admit, I like Chick-fil-a's food. I like that you can actually tell that it's chicken, rather than processed mush, seasoned and shaped into a patty. But I DO NOT like the president's views on the matter of gay rights/marriage, and it makes me sad that he is one of the many people who is so close-minded on the matter. At the same time, our bill of rights states that everyone is entitled to free speech... So, while I don't like what he's saying, I'm not going to attack him [or his company] for it.
I feel like attacking/damning someone for not sharing your viewpoints won't accomplish anything other than making you look like a self-righteous, close-minded person, which just puts you on the same level as the self-righteous, close-minded people who attack/damn those supporting gay rights/marriage. Just a little bit counter productive.
I believe that love is love, and no one should have the right to decide whether two consenting adults should marry, outside of those who are actually IN the relationship.
I feel that it is unfair for him [the president of Chick-fil-a] to accuse those who feel that way of having "a prideful, arrogant attitude", and of trying "to redefine what marriage is about."
In my eyes, marriage is about two people making the decision to become bound together, so that their relationship is recognized in the eyes of the law [and their god(s) if they so desire].
Most importantly- Why should gender, which is [supposedly] determined by one's physical form, determine matters of the heart?
Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now.
