Chick-fil-A for the Thirsty

Who wants to go with me to Chick-fil-A today?  I'm thirsty!

My two favorite quotes from this video:

“If you’re going to claim that you stand up for Biblical principles, stand up for them.  But that means stand up for all of them.  Don’t just stand up for the ones that give you a person to hate or an easy victim to ‘other’.  Stop wearing polyester and stop watching football and go marry your dead brother’s wife.  I have no problem with people standing up for their religion.  But I have a big problem with people standing up for hate and trying to say it’s because of religion.”

“Mike Huckabee wants everybody to go to Chick-fil-A on August 1st and spend some money there and show their support for Chick-fil-A’s stance on marriage, or as I like to call it ‘hate’.  I would like to suggest an alterative.  There’s this Bible passage, Proverbs 25:21:  ‘If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.’  So if you are not a fan of Chick-fil-A’s stance on hate, on August 1st I suggest you go there and ask for a large water.  If they say you need to order something, site Proverbs 25:21.  I mean technically if they’re operating on Biblical principles they should give you an entire combo meal if your stomach growls, but let's keep it simple.  Just ask for a large water and nothing else.  If they give it to you, then you just got a few pennies of their profit and less money goes to their hate foundation.  And if they don’t then I guess they’re not even operating under their perverted version of Biblical.”
