I am going to assume that everyone with access to the internet or TV or telegraph now knows about the CEO of Chick-Fil-A and his disgusting and bigoted position on gay rights and on “traditional” family “values”. The company even donated to the Family Research Council, an odious organization that actively campaigns for laws in nations like Uganda that would allow for the execution and imprisonment of gays and lesbians! So I am going to guess they do not have a “pride day” at the Chick-Fil-A corporate HQ.
Apparently these epic ass-hats and their silly little company are benefiting from a Christian-Right organized “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day”.
This comes after the mayors of Chicago and Boston voiced their criticism and reservations about a business that actively discriminates against a segment of the US population. One Mississippi Libertarian candidate for Congress (who I will not give free publicity by naming) called for that new right wing trope “2nd Amendment Solutions” to remove these mayors from office for daring to stand up for the rights and dignity of their constituents. Nothing more (red state) American than calling for he assassination of public officials over a chicken restaurant.
There is a huge uproar over “boycotts” and “1st Amendment Suppression” from the right, but they seem to forget they do the same thing every time a business comes out in favor of human dignity (See J.C. Penny’s, NABISCO, and Home Depot for recent examples). But remember, when the right wing does it, it is NOT wrong. At least according to Jesus and David Gregory.
In the spirit of overreacting to everything, everywhere, every time I hear-by call for a boycott of all people eat at Chick-Fil-A restaurants. That means no contact, no smiling at them, no texting them, and especially no hooking up for hot, sweaty, glorious gay sex in Chick-Fil-A restrooms (come for the chicken, stay for the EXCELLENT anonymous rim-jobs!).
Why CEOs and owners think we need or want to know what they have on their tiny little Bible-rotted corporate “minds” I will never understand, but we all have to deal with the consequences. For me that means having to be greeted by dozens of “pro-family” photos on facebook and twitter extolling the virtues of people who happen to like people who have the same genitalia as they do. Wonderful.
So on behalf of all people who hate Christians who open their fat mouths and make the human race look bad, I say:
