Recently, I had to rent a car for a few days while my car’s radiator was being replaced. I noted an interesting option on the rental contract: a way to allieviate the “damage” the rented car was causing to the environment by doing something proactive elsewhere to help. A friend of mine mentioned the same idea about the Chick-Fil-A controversy.
Check out nearly any television station or newspaper’s Facebook page on Friday and look for reports about gay groups’ threatened “kiss-ins” at area Chick-Fil-A restaurants. You’ll likely find complaints demanding the media stop “stirring the pot.”
As I predicted, Chick-Fil-A set an all-time sales record on Wednesday after former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee encouraged Christians to flock to the chain to support its owner in a growing gay marriage controversy.
It was standing room only at Chick-Fil-A restaurants in the Lowcountry Wednesday in response to an unofficial celebration of “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day.” One local owner said it was the biggest number of customers he’d seen since that location’s grand opening, and even worried that he might run out of chicken before the day was over.
So I’m the type of Christian the LGBT community loves! So says an angry commenter who identifies herself as a Christian, despite an epic fail at acting like one. Her response is typical of a growing problem in society: people who disagree deciding to make it personal.
How do you feel about the ongoing controversy surrounding Chick-Fil-A and its owner’s stand on gay marriage? I’m conducting a poll, and no, “I‘m tired of hearing about it” isn’t one of the options. Vote in the poll (if you haven’t already) after the jump.
“Guilty as charged.” Three simple words caused an inexplicable controversy for restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A during an interview with the company’s president, Dan Cathey with the Christian news site Baptist Press. I find myself more than a little shocked by the “shock.”
