The Huffington Post threw down the gauntlet. In a piece that’s gotten some attention today, Noah Michelson declared that you can’t continue eating at Chick-Fil-A “if you really love LGBTQ people.” What follows from that headline is a lengthy and emotional screed demanding that the reader suppress his desires for delicious chicken sandwiches in the name of a higher cause. “If you care about queer people… you have absolutely no business eating at Chick-Fil-A,” Michelson announced with authority.
