I’m over this Chick-Fil-A thing. wePRIDEny.com was one of the first people to bring you the story of this restaurant fowl when their awful and discriminatory practices were being exposed. We told you how The Muppets dumped them, and how Chick-Fil-A lied about the removal of their products and created fake Facebook accounts to support their hate. Ouch! Then a top CEO over there had a heart attack! I can imagine why!
The mayor of Boston said he’d never let them in his city and then the idiot known as Mike Huckabee declared August 1st ‘eat at -chick-fil-a’ day or as I like to call it ‘come show how hateful and ignorant us ‘Christians’ really are’ day. Hence the top pic, which I love. To combat this, many gays showed up at Chick-Fil-A on the 1st to protest the hate. My friend was at the Chick-Fil-A in Hollywood holding up a sign that read ‘Who do you think designed your wedding dress?’ and was pictured in the Park Labrea News Beverley Press!
There’s James in the plaid! So cute!
Now another weird chain of events has unfolded in the controversy. Anthony Piccola , a Chick-Fil-A franchisee in Nashua, NH has decided to cluck the system (ha!) and try to be welcoming to the LGBT community. So much so that when he met Ryan Manseau putting Pride Parade flyers amongst Chick-Fil-A literature (including their lit on the bible, etc.) he offered him a meal and a conversation. One that turned into Anthony’s want to donate money to the Pride parade in NH and another for him to set up a table handing out free food.
Aye. Well, I really appreciate the gesture, but I don’t know how I feel about this. Even if Piccola owns the Chick-Fil-A and decided to be welcoming to our community, the money he is making from his food-court-chicken is still going to fund the removal of our rights. And I kind of almost feel that him tabling at Pride is a bad idea. I know many people who may be apt to react badly before knowing Anthony Piccola’s intentions ( and many who will despite them, based on what I’m trying to break down and process.)
(Hayley don’t eat that! Dylan works for Wendy’s now!)
All I have to say is good luck to you man. I really hope all of these chicken places burn down overnight magically. I’m sick of hate and food being combined. What do you all think about this interesting turn?
