In terms of the recent Chick-Fil-A controversy, I tend to identify more with the two sides of the cultural war than I do with those who act like they're above the whole thing and preach about "love". Some of the ones who act like they're above the whole thing come across as condescending, holier-than-thou, and self-righteous. But those involved in the cultural war? Yeah, I can understand the conservatives (and others) who show up in mass at Chick-Fil-A to show liberals that they will not let others bully them about what they can and cannot say, and where they can and cannot eat. And, on the other side, I can sympathize with the gay rights activists who kiss each other at Chick-Fil-A to proclaim that they will not sit quietly while others tell them that their relationships are sub-standard or that they do not deserve the same rights as straight married couples.
But I have to admit: My eyes do well up when I read of concrete incidents of love----not the rhetoric of love, mind you, but actual acts of love. And that was the case when I read the article, ‘Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A’ draws kissing activists. The article states the following:
"In Wichita, Kansas, the owner of the Chick-fil-A handed out free chicken sandwiches and water to gay rights activists gathered for the kiss-in. 'He was a very nice gentleman,' Jeanne de Grasse, one of the sandwich beneficiaries, told Wichita's KAKE-TV. 'He was very reasonable, we had a nice dialogue and he shared sandwiches and water with us.' In Decatur, Ga., Chick-fil-A employees served lemonade to the protesters."
