The gay marriage/equality debate of modern times takes fun turns everyday. Personally, its the saddest debate in the US today. Gays should be able to marry; its really that simple. History, I feel, will look back at our generation the same way we look at the civil rights movement of the 1960’s. In 200 years they will say things about us to the effect of “uncivilized times”. Go ahead, bet me on it.
This week, was nevertheless filled with more fun when CEO of fast food joint Chick-Fil-A, Dan Cathy, said we should not get in the way of God’s will, therefore who are “we” to say gays should marry? OK, people are entitled to their opinion, no matter how ignorant it may be. But the country just couldn’t let it be, particularly politicians. Below you will see a few reactions and my critique of those reactions.
Former Governor Mike Huckabee declared this past Wednesday “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day“. I usually like Huckabee, but hes being an asshole here. I’m kind of hoping he’s just good friends with the CEO and he’s just trying to help out the brand during this minor setback for the company. Otherwise he’s he’s just being an asshole.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says Chick-Fil-A is not welcome in Chicago. Ironic really how all the organized crime in politics is typically welcome, but not a chicken sandwich. Again, I usually like Emanuel and his naked pressuring of congressmen, but he’s being an asshole.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino – I don’t really know anything about you, but you’re being an asshole. And according to the Boston Globe, you’ve hurt the charge for gay marriage. Way to go.
Seriously people, everyone is entitled to think whatever they want. Afterall, our thoughts are the only freedom we have left these days. Protest by chicken sandwich is just stupid though. If you avoided a Chick-Fil-A or intentionally went this week in protest or support of the CEO, you’re kind of an idiot. Again, this is just my opinion so don’t not read blogs/read more blogs if you disagree/agree with me.
