Reader: Chick-Fil-A scandal distracts everyone from Twilight

Chick-Fil-A has marginally good chicken sandwiches, badass waffle fries, and a company president with an avowed aversion to same-sex couples getting legally hitched. And last week plenty of critics were crying fowl about the fast-food chain, inspiring Jenn Wohletz to offer the "Five good things about the Chick-Fil-A controversy."

Bpsycle appreciated the effort:

"I am sincerely thanking whatever god that Dan Cathy prays to, or at, for sending Chick-Fil-A's oral-moral dilemma in time to save me -- and everyone else on Facebook -- from having to wallow in the pain of Bella tiring of Edward's glitter-hands being knuckle-deep in her gizzards." Great line. just great. This is a great post. Big-ups Jenn!

Will you avoid Chick-Fil-A because of the anti-gay stance of its president? Does Chick-Fil-A deserve to get plucked? Post your thoughts below, or join the conversation already under way here.
