Although I have not been in any of its branch to taste their famous chicken, knowing their stand against gay marriage will make them more popular to both sides of the issue; to the opposing side, their chicken will leave a bitter taste while to the supporting side, it will become tastier.
What’s wrong with taking a stand nowadays? Our society have become so politically correct that many traditional beliefs are eroding like this one. Also, speaking out in public and making a stand about a hot button topic like gay marriage will surely get you into trouble as it has become evident on Chik-fil restaurant. Here’s what has been said by the Chick-fil President,
““We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that,” Cathy is quoted as saying.
Reading this statement, is it really sowing hate to stand for traditional marriage as opposed to gay marriage? Just like many people from both sides of the issue, I think he was being open and proud of what they have and who they are. Just my thoughts and personal stand on the matter.
