Just incredible. I’d never dream of talking to my cousins’ kids about religion or sexuality; and not just because I’m gay and an atheist. It’s because that’s none of your fucking business.

At one point last week I was pretty sure that Chick-Fil-A had ruined my family.
When the Chick-Fil-A anti-gay controversy broke out during the summer, it was a no-brainer for C.J.’s Dad and I to have a conversation with our sons about the company’s beliefs and decide as a family that we weren’t going to eat there anymore.
Our little family took a big stand and let it be known. Most people assumed our anti-Chick-Fil-A stance was based on our love and support of my gay brother. It’s a correct assumption, but a limited one. My husband, my sons and I decided to boycott Chick-Fil-A in love and support of the entire LGBTQ community and, more importantly, because in our house we believe that all people are created equal and deserve to be treated that way. To us, there is no excuse for hate and discrimination, not even the go-to “the bible told me so” explanation. Call us crazy.
