My uncle expounds on the neutrality of the chicken:
"Muslims do not eat pork. Hindus do not eat beef. The lesson?"
He pauses for dramatic effect.
"Don't be a chicken."
A highly politicized storm is raging over the fast food chain Chick Fil-A, propagated by the admittedly Christian ownership for their support of opponents of same-sex marriage. LGBT advocates are staging a same sex "kiss day" as a form of protest. But what kind of power does a chicken fillet sandwich hold to engender such passion?

Filipinos refer to the more ancestral phenotypes as "native" - which is quite accurate. Meat from native fowl is much leaner, but more flavorful. Modern broilers were also bred for increased meat to bone ratio. Feral escaped chickens in the Micronesian islands reportedly revert to a jungle fowl like appearance and behavior.
