Pictures That Make The Blog Want To Go Vegan (Or, At Least, Stick With KFC)

See all of these people lining up to support their favorite fast food provider?

Are they lining up to support a movement to feed the hungry? (Besides their own hungry fat asses")


They are lining up to support a multi-billion dollar corporation that maintains a policy of bigotry and hate and donates millions to far right politicians and hate groups, donating more than $3 million between 2003 and 2009 to "Christian" organizations with well-known anti-gay agendas, among them the Marriage & Family Foundation and the Family Research Council.

Unless you have been living in the basement of a KFC for the last few weeks, you know that Dan Cathy, president of junk food purveyor and sanctimonious arbiter of Biblical morality, Chick-fil-A recently doubled down on the company's anti-gay policies. In the process, he also managed to disparage a large majority of the American public, the very people who line up to purchase his deep fried chicken and waffle fries. Cathy has called his very customers a "generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."

And, oh yes, he "pray(s) for God's mercy," on his "arrogant" customers.


In fairness to Dan Cathy, he is merely parroting the philosophy of his dad, Chick-fil-A founder, CEO, and sanctimonious douchebag, S. Truett Cathy, who the not even remotely liberal Forbes magazine once described as a "cult leader."

Presidential race failure Mike Huckabee, in an attempt to remain relevant, declared August 1st, 2012 "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" and a disturbing number of pseudo-Christians came out in droves, all over the country. Waving signs and devouring deep fried goodness, smothered in hate sauce.

Let me be clear....

Chick-fil-A and it's corporate leaders have every right to hold any position that they want. And, to support any odious hate group that they choose.

And, I and all of my liberal and gay and lesbian brothers and sisters have every right to take our business elsewhere.

Not tolerating intolerance is not a double negative.

And, by the way...

Are you a righty who thinks that liberals should not boycott businesses that we do not agree with?

Then let me remind you of your hypocritical reaction to the position taken, recently, by J.C. Penny.

  1. THANK YOU for calling them "pseudo-Christians," because hate and bigotry are simply not Christian tenets (see The New Testament, people).

    No, these people are far more closely related to terrorism than they are to Christianity. Check out what the FBI has to say on the subject:

    "Investigating hate crime is the number one priority of our Civil Rights Program. Why? Not only because hate crime has a devastating impact on families and communities, but also because GROUPS THAT PREACH HATRED AND INTOLERANCE PLANT THE SEEDS OF TERRORISM HERE IN OUR COUNTRY." From
