Intolerance with Feathers

I once heard a woman say, "I don't eat no feather meat of no kind."  I am petty much with her when it comes to Chick fil A chicken.  It is not a bad meal either as far as fast food chicken goes, but now that the religious right organized an 'appreciation day' for this gay hating and chicken killing chain I have pretty much decided they are off my menu.  I will bet you the leadership of the boy scouts will endorse them pretty soon.  Now mind you, this is all your standard brand of fundamentalist christian hatred at work.  Make no other assumption.  One could say these religious zealots have something in common with the Islamic Taliban.  They all hate people who are different.  The christians deny it of course.  But it is true.  Next thing we will see is the Chick fil A mascot cows holding signs saying "Kill a queer for Christ."  But, they do have a right to their opinion and some Mayors around the country are overstepping their bounds in trying to ban the fattening food outlets from their towns.  The best protest is to not spend your money there.

Actually this is all pretty scary.  Not funny.  As we see evidence of continuing divide between the classes one could imagine that corporate giants like Chick fil A could use this issue to keep some of the poverty stricken religious right in an alliance.  Boy that is a crazy statement, isn't it?

I love it! Then again I am what consider a rational Republican. I was once considered a conservative, but things have become so crazy with the GOP's love affair with the tea parties and Mittens that I am now called a "socialist". I was on the phone today, with another Republican who will most likely soon be exiled from the party by the irrational extremes. I read your commentary to her. I love the sarcasm. I'm working on a post for my Pink Flamingo and am using a bit of it, along with Gal 3:26-29.

These people are so embarrassing that this is the first time in my life I'm not voting for the GOP nominee. Heck, I'm just going to deal with it and vote for Gary Johnson. At least people here in NM have a sense of humor. (Except for the civic leaders of Ruidoso - but that's another tawdry tale).

Religious people should be able to convince others to join their religion and follow their faith, but they shouldn't be able to make civil laws that prevent people of other faiths from getting married however they wish to marry. It just sounds unconstitutional - an inequitable government intrusion on some people's freedom and happiness. Don't like gay marriage? Don't have one.

This is so stupid! That chicken sandwich doesn't care if I'm gay or straight when I'm eating it.
Why does the owner?

It all about making money and who has the best product. This is business, not the Jerry Springer show.

Let see where chick-fil-a is five years from now. Hopefully most people do not eat there, or not, because the owner is a bigot.

Reminds me of Lotta Burger. Let's see where it is five years from now.
