There’s still time to go run out to your local Chick-fil-A and make out with another dude or lady. That’s the response to Wednesday’s groundswell of support for the company, whose president has received criticism (as well as threats from politicians) due to his comments favoring traditional marriage.
There’s even more bad publicity for the gay marriage supporters, as a restaurant in Torrance, Calif., was vandalized, with “Tastes Like Hate” scrawled on the side.
Will this effort have any impact? Hmm. The Facebook page for the event has a grand total of 13,788 people listed as going. Compared to Wednesday’s apparent record-setting sales, this is not much of a response. People are invited to post their pictures on the page, but there’s only a handful so far.
Also, why would it have any impact? We’re talking about a company that deliberately reduces its own profit potential by closing one day a week. I’m not sure how exactly one might get the leaders of Chick-fil-A to completely reverse their positions on gay marriage, or if it’s even possible, but I’m fairly certain that boycotts and kissing aren’t going to do it.
