Chick Fil A Shows Its Cowardly Side
Up until now I have had no strong feelings one way or the other about Chick Fil A. It wasn’t until fairly recently that there was one semi near me (about an hour away) and the one time I ate there I was not that impressed with the food.
I disagreed with their stance on marriage equality but recognized that it came from sincere beliefs of the owners, and even though I felt those views wrong I felt they were entitled to them.
In addition I have had issues with the whole “boycott some business or performer because you don’t like their views” theory.
In short given a choice I would go somewhere else but if they were the only place around or had a really good deal I was open to the idea.
Today however came the final straw.
As you may have heard in the news, the Jim Henson Company decided to end their relationship with Chick Fil A because of Chick’s anti marriage views.
Now Chick could have simply told customers that they had decided to end their relationship but instead they have put up signs saying that they (Chick) decided to stop distributing the Muppet products for “safety reasons”
As I see it you are entitled to your views but with that goes accepting the consequences of those views. When you are too cowardly to do even that, it’s enough for me to say I am done as a customer.
