News Drop: Five Things to Know About Chik-Fil-A via Huffington Post -

I’ll be perfectly blunt: love is love and a person should have the ability to express that in any way they’d like, weird things aside (by weird, I mostly mean NAMBLA). The comments made were outright hateful and Huckabee’s call to eat chicken to support that - or something? - is just silly. And baffling. I feel for these franchise owners, too, who might be caught up in the middle - though, hey, apparently your company is full of douche bags. Suddenly that Taco Bell with its Dorito shell full of dog food “meat” isn’t looking too terrible.
