Just wanted to express a quick word of congratulations to all the folks who sat for an hour or more yesterday with their cars idling so they could buy a chicken sandwich. I understand that that anti-gay chicken restaurant – which is now how it will be known – posted record sales for the day! That sure was a stunning victory, wasn’t it? In fact, it might even be a miracle!What else could possibly explain the fact that former governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, plus many, many anti-gay advocacy groups, utilized the media tools and church leaders at their disposal to call upon you to go forth and buy a chicken sandwich, and you did it?
Are you going to do it again tomorrow? I hope so, because the thought of you sitting in your car for an hour waiting to buy a chicken sandwich makes me laugh, in much the same way that thinking of you sending an urgent donation of $5, $10, or $25 to “Public Advocat” because it told you that “the Radical Homosexual Lobby has legalized sodomy and bestiality in the military!” and that “they actually consider the ‘right to violate animals sexually’ a basic human necessity”* makes me laugh.
Onward, you brave, brave, selfless warriors, you.
