It was one of those things that I thought would never happen, but it did:

Grand Rapids now has two Chick-fil-A Restaurants and one just opened in Portage, just outside Kalamazoo.

Every time I turn on the TV and the news talks about Chick-fil-A opening, I see people camping outside of their store, camping out to check out one of their chicken sandwiches. That's right! A fried piece of chicken between two buns and a pickle. I even asked one of my co-workers, who LOVES Chick-fil-A why she loves it and she said that simply, the chicken is so juicy and tender. As a matter of fact, she's been back there several times.

Before the GR locations opened, the only Chick-fil-A in Michigan was at a commissary at Wayne State University in Detroit. I would never thought of the day that our state would ever get one of them.

Yes, there's many fast food joints that EVERYBODY loves - White Castle, Shake Shack, In-and-Out, The Habit and more - that are homeless in west Michigan. But at least this area has two Chick-fil-As to call their own. It's sad, since the family that owns the company is severely far to the right and have publicly bashed homosexuals.

Years ago, Dan Cathy, the son of company founder Truett Cathy bashed gay marriage in an interview. Of course, it's sad considering that the Cathys are devout Southern Baptists and yet, the book they worship from doesn't explicitly talk about homosexuality, especially from Jesus himself. Yes, it's nice that they gave out Veggietales toys and the fact that they're closed on Sundays is helping them get into Heaven a lot quicker, but the sad reality is, is that they're doing it all wrong. The fact that the Cathys support anti-gay groups doesn't help, either.

Personally, I'd rather drive to the Division Street ghetto where GR's Popeye's is vs. going to a Chick-fil-A. I love chicken, but I respect gays, too. For way too long, people have misread and disrespected the Bible when it comes to everybody from women, blacks and especially gays. Sadly, the Cathys are guilty of doing this and I sure as hell won't do business with them.

Some things aren't worth staying in a tent for. Chicken is one of them.
