STARBUCKS Latte with your Chick-Fil-A???
August 7, 2012
fast-food social-issues war rages on. Last Wednesday there was
Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, which was a huge success and led to record
sales. (And at least one dude getting fired
for picking an unfortunate method of dissent.) And in response, last
Friday there was supposed to be a
People-of-the-Same-Gender-Kissing-Each-Other Day at Chick-fil-A, but it
ended up attracting more media than protesters.
How else are liberals in good standing supposed to
prove that people who disagree with them about gay marriage are evil
bigots who are bigoted and evil? How are they supposed to express their
righteous indignation? How are they supposed to vent?
Gay marriage activists are planning to swarm
Starbucks on Tuesday in an attempt to counter the record sales from last
week’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
The chicken chain enjoyed a surge of support during the Wednesday
event, dreamed up by former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee after
Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy went on the record backing the “biblical
definition of the family unit.”
A follow-up protest from Chick-fil-A critics on Friday, which was dubbed Same Sex Kiss Day, was more subdued.
And by “more subdued,” they mean “completely ignored.”
Advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
rights are trying again Tuesday with National Marriage Equality Day,
initiated by Equally Wed, a lesbian and gay wedding magazine. So far,
nearly 28,000 people have signed up to attend.
Wow, that’s a lot! I’m going to go ahead and predict that National
Marriage Equality Day is going to be very successful. And that
it’s going to “counter” the thing that happened last week that they
didn’t like, via some process that has yet to be explained. I figure it
was called Supporting Businesses By Giving Them Your Money,
which is pretty much how our society operates. I don’t get how that
“counters” Chick-fil-A’s sales.
It’ll also be amusing to see if the people who dismissed the Chick-fil-A buycott will change their tune.
