Not that we all didn’t know anyway. They’ve been donating millions of dollars to anti-gay causes for years now, but for some reason, we just look the other way and wolf down waffle fries anyway.
Stop looking the other way. Their COO just flat out said Chick Fil A is not pro-equality, so now you have no excuses. Stop going there.
From the Advocate:
Dan Cathy, the chief operating officer of Chick-fil-A, said there is no denying that his company opposes marriage equality.
…Cathy told the Baptist Press he aims to operate the restaurant chain “on biblical principles.” When asked whether his company had an established position against marriage equality, Cathy said, “guilty as charged.”
He added, “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. … We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”
Ok? Are we clear now? It’s all out in the open. Chick Fil A is anti-gay. Forreal. No wiggle room or opportunity for different interpretations.
So stop giving them money! I know it’s hard, but damn. It’s JUST a chicken sandwich. I know how good it is. Trust me. If anybody knows how good a Chick Fil A sandwich is, it’s this guy right here.
- I worked in a mall. Food court Chick Fil A spots are better than Christmas.
- I’m from the South. That sweet tea is The Business Dot Com. So good.
- I’m black. We know good chicken.
But I stopped! I haven’t given those hatemongers one red cent since I realized they were giving money to keep me from reaching The Fullest Potential of Rafi. Do you want that to happen? Do you want me to be less than great just so you can get a waffle fry? I mean, would you donate money to Westboro Baptist? Would you donate money to Maggie Gallagher and NOM? No, you wouldn’t. So why give money to a business that turns around and gives your money to people like that.
You might as well be writing bigotry paychecks directly.
