I like to challenge the localized thinking of individuals to make global change

Well….I guess I’ll have fries with my Burger!

Ah Chick-Fil-A how I will miss thee!  People are entitled to their own opinions I suppose, but is it good business practice to have your opinions alienate current and potential customers by telling people that they are supporting your efforts against same-sex marriage when they patronize your establishment.  I mean if he said I am against black women with natural hair, would you still pick out your fro, gather up your twists, or cinch up your locks and go buy that chicken sandwich, nuggets, salad, shake, etc. even though your money is helping to protest that which you have every right to as a part of your life?

I’m not naive enough to think that others will see anything wrong with this position and continue to happily answer the question, “How may I serve you today?”  However, I now find myself in a precarious position.  My daughter is in a same-sex marriage and if I continue to patronize Chick-Fil-A then I will in essence be supporting that which is against my daughter.  This just doesn’t sit too well with my spirit.  So I’m down to a choice of a chicken sandwich or my child.  Well, to me that’s a no-brainer.

I doubt that Chick-Fil-A will miss my little $26.00 at least once a week when I feed the whole family.  But I will know in my heart that I am protesting something that is totally against that which I support and if it costs me a few waffle fries….well, so be it!

Peace and Blessings
