3. Tilting the hat

This is the only article, as of yet, to make a ground breaking statement:

"...Is it possible this person could start a franchise rebellion? or is it more likely he will loose his franchise?

"I certainly don't know on this one. Brave fucker though. Gotta give him that."

You see, this is not a display of corporate beliefs. Dan Cathy did that all on his own, and look what it has done to him. This is a display of one man's values being greater than his need to fill his wallet. Anthony Picolia has stood up to show his morals, his personal convictions, and he's doing what's right. He bought a chick-fil-a franchise long before this controversy and now he's drawing the line between right and wrong.

In a time of hate and greed, this is truly an inspiring gesture.

I'm not saying go out and burn your next pay check at chick-fil-a. I am, however, saying that we members of the LGBTQ community can be proud of ourselves and our supporters. Chick-fil-a has become a massive force against equality these days. BUT, we of the LGBTQ community have just shown this tyrant that there is NO home for homophobia in this nation. The fear and hatred has no where to hide any more.

All my best,
Sr. Director of NH Pride Fest: Ryan Manseau
