Chick-fil-A Asked To Stop Serving Gay Chickens
Chick-fil-A restaurants have been accused of being anti-democratic, anti-people and what not on account of the chain’s President Dan Cathy’s statement decrying same sex marriages . His words have created quite a storm with almost all of America taking sides both for and against it. The controversy has also seen the politicians jump into the bandwagon by turning the issue into a political one. The Chick-fil-a restaurant has seen a decline in its profits as well although Cathy remains grateful to the customers who are standing by him in a steadfast manner. Here comes a new twist now! It is in the form of a petition which asks the chain to stop serving gay chicken! Sounds confusing? Let us see what the protestors have on this.
What Does It Mean?
Stephen Hoffman, one of the primary organizers behind the petition which goes, "Chick-fil-A: End the hypocrisy! Stop serving gay chickens."- explains that chicken have been observed to follow homosexual practices sometimes. This isn’t a new discovery either, he explains stating that the fact had been established since 1764. He also put the fact on paper, asking the restaurant chain to stop being a hypocrite and trying to pass off as a good Christian by misinterpreting the Holy Bible. Of the 300 million chicken products sold yearly by Chick-fil-A, at least 30%-40% are bound to contain gay chicken meat. His statement was scathing in its attack saying, "tell Chick-fil-A to put their money where their mouth is and only sell animals that are 100 percent heterosexual." Surprisingly the petition has already amassed more than 1500 signatures endorsing the view.
While research studies into the behavior of fowls and other birds do validate that homosexuality and bonding among males is quite common, the current petition seems to be more of a humorous take instead of a serious one. However, it sure is yet another way of protesting Dan Cathy’s words. The 'Chick-fil-A appreciation Day' has seen a huge gathering and support from the general public meanwhile. However, we need to keep our eyes open for noting the reaction to “National Same Sex Kiss Day” to be held at all local franchises of the restaurant on Friday, the 3rd of August. This event has been organized by the LGBT(lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) supporters and is expected to have thousands join in.
The battle will undoubtedly be a long drawn one. Do keep waiting for more News on the latest developments on this issue.
