Beyond boycott: Christians, gays and Chick-fil-A
Re: “The personal is political for this gay boy and Chick-fil-A” (Blog by Bo Shell, Feb. 24)
"My sentiments exactly. I contracted with CFA corporate for some time, and never had an issue though I’m sure they read between the lines. The company put my sister through a private (secular) college for less than it cost me to go to Georgia Southern. They have principles that not everyone may agree with, but the actions of one operator and support of a straight marriage counseling event don’t make a company evil. (How many gay-only couples counselors are listed in this publication alone?!) Being Christian is not necessarily anti-gay, though I would not count on them to put a float in the Pride parade any time soon, but then, neither will McDonalds, BK or Wendy’s. As for the boycott? No skin off my back. I’m vegetarian."
