Vegetarian Florida Politician Eats Chick-Fil-A To Prove How Much He Hates Gays
Meat had not passed the lips of Jacksonville City Council member Don Redman for thirty-five years. That's not even a euphemism. Dude has been a solid vegetarian for three-and-a-half decades.
The chow down actually occurred back in August during the original Chick-Fil-A hoopla, and ahead of close vote in Jacksonville over a gay rights ordinance.
So, remember how way back in the '70s Anita Bryant got all pissed because Dade County passed a bill that prevented gays from being discriminated against in matters of housing and education. She lead an effort to repeal the ordinance. Then, back in 1998 Miami-Dade reinstated the ordinance. Yeah, well Jacksonville is still stuck in the days of Anita Bryant.
"You sound like a misguided & miserable individule [sic], who needs our prayers," Redman wrote back. "I pray that god will speak to your heart & show you the truthes [sic] of his word."
