Same Sex Kiss Day

2012-07-23 20:43:33.925962+00 by Dan Lyke 17 comments

National Same Sex Kiss Day at Chick-Fil-A is August 3rd!

Unfortunately, the closest (hmmm... almost typo'd that to closetedest) Chick-Fil-A is in Fairfield, and going to Fairfield has no appeal.

Gotta say Dan, I love that quote " It's kinda like Woolworth Lunch Counter Appreciation Day for the new millenium!"

While I'm not surprised at all that Mr. Cathy has come out as pro-traditional marriage it was certainly surprising to me that he would come out as anti-gay marriage. There is a difference between those to positions. It turns out that a lot more is being made of what he didn't say than of what he did say.

@andylyke: I get the same thing from Burning Man, and it's more fun. But in either case, yes a few days without some things we American's take for granted does help adjust things.

BTW: Had a good "dinner" at a place that was essentially some tarps and rugs ove metal frames.. Turned out it was mostly rabbit. It was very good. They laughed when they told me it was rabbit, they looked at me funny when I said my father used to raise them for meat..

@meuon: nothing like being in west Africa to clear the vision and help understand priorities.

I support Chick-Fil-A's stance as a private business to do whatever they want. I respect them for their "closed on sundays" and distinctly born again christian staff with mall bangs. Sometimes I even eat their food. But rarely. The food is ok, slightly overpriced for what it is, and I don't feel comfortable with their clientelle. I'm afraid I'll spout off a rant at some tortured spandex wearing fundy and they'll smother me in waffle fries until I accept Jesus as my lord and savior. (He's just not Dom enough, sorry. Nice guy, I'd love to drink some wine with him, chat about things.. talk about his Dad.)

Chick-Fil-A is to fried chicken what Hot Topic is to punk/goth/emo.. and they both belong in the mall.

They gay marriage crowd will make more enemies than friends doing a "Same Sex Kiss Day" at Chick-Fil-A, my advice if they really want to do business there: hold hands, be just borderline acceptable. move the boundaries a little at a time.

Right now, I'd like to be back in a place (like the USA) where such small things mattered. Life in W. Africa is about water, or rather the lack of it. Food... and honking your horn from a motor scooter in a swarm of traffic.

OOOOps. Shoulda clicked through first. Now the world makes a lot more sense to me. I had expected that chik fil a would have an anti gay bias, so my (mis)reading of the link title shocked me. Now the Earth's axis is tipped at 23.5 degrees again.

Didn't read the link, but on the face of it, this is surprising to me. Chik-Fil-A has (had?) a close link with devout Christians. They are (were?) steadfastly closed on Sundays, regardless of how much money was trying to be spent. A good sign, IMO
