Still not sure what to think about the whole Chick-Fil-A brouhaha? Let’s ask for guidance from the bed intruder guy:

Whether you’re an activist or apathetic, whether you’re gay or straight, whether you love succulent fried chicken parts or you’re an incomprehensible weirdo, you need to get out and support Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day on August 1st. Here’s why:
– It stops political hacks from setting the precedent that fascism is acceptable: You do not want to live in a world where bureaucrats can decide whether or not you participate in commerce based on your political beliefs. You may think it’s great that they’re suppressing people who disagree with you, but soon enough, they’ll get around to you too.
– It supports free speech: This all came about because a man was asked an innocuous question about his beliefs, and in a world of Clintonian bet-hedging, he answered with unvarnished honesty. Should that be something that could lead to your financial ruin? Hell to the no.
– Does everything have to be political?: Let us all push back against the idea that you can’t pick up a box of freaking chicken nuggets without doing extensive research into the political contribution history of the guy who fried them.
– It give us another excuse to go to Chick-Fil-A: Did I mention their food is delicious? Try the cookies’n’cream milkshake. Thank me later.
