I want a Chick-Fil-A


When I am next in America I want to go and have a chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A. I had never heard of Chick-Fil-A until the storm recently broke out in America because the CEO, Truett Cathy dared to say ( in an interview with a Christian magazine) that he believes in the biblical definition of the family unit. It is also part of the company's ethos that they refuse to open on Sundays, run debt free, and contribute a percentage of their profits back to the community.

City Mayors are refusing to let Chick-Fil-A open new outlets. Rosanne Barr went further, saying anyone who eats at Chick-Fil-A deserves to get cancer. Gay groups are asking people to stay away from Chick-Fil-A but as the picture above shows, the boycott doesn't seem to be going so well. I agree with Matthew Archbold's analysis of this attack:
[...] the left's reaction to the fast food joint has little to do with gay rights and everything to do with silencing dissent. This reaction along with the media's help is essentially the head on the pike that tells people "you're next" if you cross us.
