A not-quite-chicken Chick-fil-A alternative in Gulfport

I'm going to be honest: I think Chick-fil-A is boring. It's way too overhyped, and if you don't know about the chain's ever-growing anti-LGBTQ history, well, you do now.My solution for your fried pickly, kinda-chickeny cravings can be found at Gulfport's Golden Dinosaurs.Their Chick-fil-Nay, made with fried seitan, house-made bread n' butter pickles and Dino Sauce on a toasted brioche bun, is a super yummy alternative. I loved it, and even my meat-eating friends said it was tasty. You can tell this is obviously not chicken, but it definitely satisfied my fried meat craving.Plus: The eatery is donating proceeds from sales of the sandwich this month to Metro Inclusive Health. So you can actually help the LGBTQ community and eat a damn good sandwich, too.

Southern Baptist Convention 2021 offers a Trump and critical race theory litmus test

Want a preview of the 2022 election cycle? Look no further than the Southern Baptist Convention, or SBC, starting this week in Nashville, Tennessee. The Republican "culture wars" playbook will be front and center at this high-profile meeting of America's largest Protestant denomination. The SBC is set to tackle buzzy topics like critical race theory, or CRT, sex abuse and women's role in ministry. But the most pressing question is how will a denomination that formed in part to defend slavery deal with racism. Will it condemn CRT and risk losing Black churches and members? Or will it strike a middle ground?
