I’m Boycotting Chick-Fil-A Next Wednesday

Next Wednesday, I won’t be eating at Chick-Fil-A. I’m boycotting the place.

My decision to boycott CFA has nothing to do with the CFO’s statements about same-sex marriage. I’m actually not in favor of same-sex marriage either, so of course I wouldn’t be boycotting for that reason.

Here’s why I won’t be eating at Chick-Fil-A next Wednesday. With all the people who plan to eat there in support of CFA’s stance, and all the other people who plan to show up in opposition to CFA’s stance, it’s just going to be too darn crowded there. The place is already busy enough, and as much as I like their food, I’d rather go another day and just skip Wednesday entirely. So I guess you could say that since I’m not going to CFA Wednesday, on purpose, that’s kind of a boycott. Which is a new thing for me, since I normally think these little boycotts are childish and silly.

Oh just something to consider… if you’re going to have opinions about controversial things, one way or the other, then be secure enough to not freak out if someone voices a different opinion than yours. It’s probably nothing personal. It’s just that on an issue like same-sex marriage, with the country divided approximately in half over it, a lot of people are going to disagree with whatever view you have. But cheer up – a lot of other people are likely on your side. That’s just the way it is; a boycott likely won’t change anything.

Anyway, I’ll be boycotting Chick-Fil-A on Wednesday. However, I might go on Thursday, so if anyone needs me to pick up a chicken sandwich or something for them that day, let me know.

    I will be eating at chic filet Wednesday…. God loves all of his people and I want all people to know that God loves everyone no matter what. This is a opportunity to let (remind) both sides that God is for all folks. I will also honor the word of God and stand on the truth that one man and one women only should be together marriage. God can and will have a personal relationship with each of us. We must speak the truth in love and let God handle his people.

    The whole hullabaloo about Chik-Fil-A just makes me crazy. We do live in a country with freedom of speech. If you have the freedom to speak out in favor of gay marriage, then Chik-Fil-A has the freedom to disagree with you. They’re a great American company that takes VERY good care of their employees and makes great, Southern Food. They’ve always been closed on Sundays, so that should have given everyone a heads up years ago.

    Stay away from the madness, and enjoy your Thursday chicken sandwich. Have some fries with ranch for me. It’ll be a couple more months before I get some chik-fil-a. 🙂
