Why I Support Chick-Fil-A..

2 Aug

As, known, the restaurant known for amazing chicken and delectable waffle fries, Chick-Fil-A, is catching major slack for their stance on gay marriage.

The controversy came to a boil after an interview with the fast food restaurant chain’s president and COO Dan Cathy appeared in The Baptist Press on July 16 and he weighed in with his views on family.

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” Cathy said. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

Gay rights activist have since called for the boycott of Chick-Fil-A, and said they would protest in front of stores.

The restaurant has since received support from millions of people. From politicians, to other restaurants, such as Wendy’s.

I support their stance.

You can NOT expect every single person to think the same way you do. Because Chick-Fil-A, does not support gays does not mean that they are bad people. They feel the way they feel. It’s called free speech. It was a right given to us at birth.

It seems that some gay people tend to think like everyone should like they do. False. Everyone is entailed to their own feelings, own morals, and own personal stance on life issues. It does not mean they hate gays, it simply means they believe that the definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. Being gay is a personal choice, key word, personal, I think that it’s way too much being read into it. A personal matter, getting public attention. If you are gay, be happy in your own skin, and the person god made you, every single human being does not have to agree.

I read where a gay activist related this issue to the civil rights era when blacks were discriminated against. STOP. African Americans were not discriminated against because of who they chose to lay down with. They were captured, enslaved for many years, raped, beaten, killed, and still face humility because of the color of their skin. It is completely different and I was so disgusted that someone could relate such.

Since the controversy, Chick-Fil-A, has reported to have record setting sales. So, the boycott seems to be doing the exact opposite. So while all these activists are standing in 90+ degree weather, with the picket signs, and losing their voice, Chick-Fil-A is winning, and still has AMAZING FOOD. Point blank.

Keep the peace, and good waffle fries. 🙂 ♥
