Believe it or not, but this is America, people are allowed to have opinions….even opinions you don’t agree with. (Freedom of Speech ring a bell?) The Chick-Fil-A president saying he’s for the “biblical definition of a family” is his opinion. Do I agree with his opinion? Totally disagree. Do I…
Free speech is not free of consequences. You have the right to stand up and say you don’t condone gay marriage but you aren’t free from people choosing to not want to eat there. learn and understand exactly what free speech is.
I’m not saying they’re not allowed to choose not to eat there if that’s their choice. My intentions weren’t to stand up for him per se, I meant an opinion on gay marriage shouldn’t stop you from eating there if you still want to, even if you disagree with his opinion. People were saying if you’re really in favor of gay marriage you wouldn’t eat there, and if you do you’re a hypocrite or not standing up for what you believe in. Personally, I find that stupid; I’ve never eaten there because I thought he was an advocate for gay marriage, I ate there because I like the food. If anyone wants to boycott it, then go for it, but don’t criticize other people if they still want to eat there.
I’m not criticizing anyone who wants to eat there, it’s a free country, I just don’t want to be criticized for choosing to avoid the place. Trust me, many have been making us feel stupid for not wanting to eat there and that we’re condemning free speech or something, which is ridiculous because me not eating there is MY free speech.
