Interesting to watch the kiddies moving to remove Chick-fil-A from the food service from on campus (they deliver once a week, and given all the latest brouhaha, our little liberal-minded campus took note). Sadly, a smaller bunch have decided to "boycott the boycott," which would be amusing if it weren't so sad (and really, they're just doing it to be contrary - ah, youth). What's even sadder is that none of them seem to be able to come up with a more cogent discussion point beyond, "FUCK OBAMA" and "I'm not a homophobe because I like chicken!" (which, of course, no one is accusing anyone of). They can't seem to answer simple questions put to them, but accuse those who are trying to find an alternative local supplier of being "butt hurt" (pun no doubt intended). I probably shouldn't be posting to the various Facebook pages for and against the idea, but I can't help myself (and fortunately am not in a position of any kind of authority on campus so no one can claim some kind of breach of ethics, plus my militant feminist lesbian boss would have my back anyway).

The saddest part of all is that, alas, this is the final nail in the CFA coffin for me - no more sweet tea, waffle fries and nuggets for me. I was fine with them being a private, Christian-centered business, but if they actively support anti-LGBT organizations and initiatives, and openly discriminate against LGBT people, well, that's definitely the line for me. Ah, well - lots of other companies want my 3-dollar bills! :)

I never had their food. I guess it was good but considering the lines at the mall for it i never wanted to wait and beside the Panda Express had Chinese food and i like that better anyway.

and it is not like there is not Church's chicken and KFC and other places. Hell Long John Silvers has good chicken (and HUSH PUPPIES OM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM!!!!!!!! My dad used to have me believing they were sea urchins to try to gross me out and then i ate them and was all NOM SPINY SEAFOOD LOVE! turns out i really like Uni anyway! )

but yeah i really really wish some like Methodist or such groups that are pro homo would stand up and scream and shout or something. i know there are gay positive christians out there and they need to stand on top of the bell towers and scream WE EXIST!

it would be nice.

but hey this is a sign of the fact that they know they are losing the fight and are grasping at any straws like mad men drowning.

The Unitarians are pretty outspoken about their support of GLBT people, but maybe they're not in the same camp as Methodists or Episcopalians. (We are nominally a Christian organization, but have many, many members who would bristle at being called Christian. People who herd cats have an easier time of managing their flocks... :-)

I have heard that. I know Unitarian Atheists. which just confused the fuck out of me. since most atheists would also be loathe to be called anything remotely religious

UUs are certainly a different breed entirely. There are a TON of UU Pagans, too.

I had a friend in college whose parents were both atheist UU ministers. Takes all kinds I guess.
