It was time to show up for another protest. The fundamentalist, Bible thumping, relig-iots are quacking about “free speech“. Sure, the CEO of Chick-fil-A can say whatever he wishes, but that won’t immunize him from the repercussions. Choosing to marginalize, subjugate, and discriminate against a percentage of the American public, LGBT people, is not good for business. It’s also illegal in many states. Dan Cathy, and his family owned corporation, have donated an estimated $5 million to anti-gay organizations and hate groups between 2003 and 2010.
