If it were just a simple misquote, then Dan Cathy could have simply come out and corrected it.
But he didn't do that, did he?
He didn't because it's not just his words that reveal his mean spirited bigotry.
His actions mirror his words.
He isn't simply saying negative things about gay people.
He's actively trying to discourage the gay lifestyle by donating some of chick-fil-A's profits to groups like the Family Research Council, whose mission includes (among other things) criminalizing homosexuality.
So, if you're FOR smashing down homosexuals and denying them rights that straight people enjoy, let's hope they broke all previous sales records and continue to do so.
I was hoping this campaign against gay rights (disguised as a campaign for free speech) would fall flat but apparently there's a whole lot of folks who value a chicken sandwich more than they value their gay relatives, friends or neighbours.
There really should have been no controversy and no protest.
Dan Cathy has a right to disagree with gay marriage.
Homosexuals have a right to boycott Chick-fil-A for his statements.
