After a delicious Sunday brunch at Tupelo Honey South the Citizen Thymes spotted the unthinkable at Chick-fil-A on Hendersonville Road, people working.
Apparently the day of rest is only for individuals working on the inside, not the outside. Its kind of like tax cuts being for only people in certain tax brackets.
Chick-fil-A has always taken its religious background seriously. In fact company president Dan Cathy says the company was founded on biblical principles.
But the Citizen Thymes has no problem with a company or person expressing their religious freedom, except when such expression trounces on or harms other people’s rights. According to Equality Matters:
The company has strong, deep ties to anti-gay organizations like Focus on the Family and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and its charitable division has provided more than $1.1 million to organizations that deliver anti-LGBT messages and promote egregious practices like reparative therapy that seek to “free” people of being gay.
Which is why every time my girlfriend eats at Chick-fil-A I tell her she just took a bite out of a gay person’s soul. But sometimes even people that our of the LGBT community can’t help but eat at Chick-fil-A, which the following video satirizes:
Nonetheless no matter where you stand on certain issues it’s good to know in true Portlandia fashion, not only what farm your chicken comes from, but what the owner of the establishment cooking the chicken believes in and supports with money from your purchase of such chicken.
