Unless you've been living under a rock, you know August 1 is "Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day" aka support CFA for their stance on "traditional marriage."
I just don't get it.
I understand why someone wouldn't support gay marriage. And that's fine. Maybe you don't know any gay people or you think you're going to hell for supporting homosexuality or whatever.
I just can not for the life of me understand why someone would be so vehemently against it.
WHY DO YOU CARE IF TWO WOMEN GET MARRIED?!? What does it change in your life?
I understand not caring. I just will never understand feeling so strongly that you will eat some freaking chicken just to show your support the denial of equal rights.
Pretty much any other issue I get. Pro-life? Killing babies is bad, protect babies! I get it. Pro-choice? Your body your choice! I get it!
Death penalty? Killing adults is bad too! I get it. Some people do horrible things and need to be taken out of society. Protect our families! I get it.
I just do not understand the strong feelings for the denial of a civil right. Who are you protecting?!
If two men get married, how does it personally affect your marriage? Why do you give a damn?
As for those who keep saying "we're just supporting a business owner's right to support a cause he believes in!"
Please show me where someone said a business owner doesn't have the right to an opinion.
If the owner of Sonic comes out and says he supports making abortion legal through 9 months of pregnancy and available to everyone for free regardless of age, parental consent, or any other factor, are you going to run to Sonic and load up on tots?
What about the Olympians who got banned from the games for making racist remarks? Why aren't you rushing to throw money at their right to have an opinion?
And as for me personally with Chick-Fil-A... I'm not saying I'll never eat there again. I'm not boycotting. I freaking love that Christian chicken and those waffle fries and that diet lemonade. I'll just throw $7 towards a civil rights group and call it a day. And that's exactly what I'm doing on August 1.
