Well, at least the founder still hates gay people. It’s unfair to speak for the chain’s employs. Furthermore, implying a chicken sandwich could hold any views, let alone homophobic ones is just silly.
Chick-Fil-A president, Dan Cathy was none too happy after yesterday’s Supreme-Court decision to legalize gay marriage on a national level. And what do out-of-touch rich guys do when they’re upset? They take to Twitter!
Dan Carthy tweeted, and then quickly deleted his sentiments:
Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed of our gen. to abandon wisdom of the ages re: cornerstone of strong societies.
Now, people play the, “founding fathers would have totally thought like I do” card a lot, but it’s really bad in this case. It’s not like the Declaration of Independence places heteronormality as one of the keystones of a prosperous nation. Honestly, the founding fathers would probably have seen gay marriage as a state issue and punted it off the docket. This is fitting considering that’s exactly what the Supreme Court just did.
Final note: My favorite part of every “dummy on twitter” story is that said dummy always tries to delete the controversial tweet. I guess it makes sense that the same people who don’t understand that saying hateful things on Twitter is bad are the same guys who don’t know understand how easy photo capturing is.
