Chick-fil-A: Tastes Like Bigotry!

image

I think this would be a much more accurate slogan for the anti-equality fast food chain, don’t you?

After denying they had an antigay agenda, Dan Cathy (I swear, that’s his name), president of Chick-fil-Eww, has admitted that the company is unapologetically antigay.

“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 operate as a family business … our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that,” Cathy emphasized. “We intend to stay the course,” he said. “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.”

Doesn’t that just make you feel all warm & icky inside? Well, get ready to start dry heaving! Equality Matters investigated The WinShape Foundation, Chick-fil-A’s charitable arm, and found that through WinShape Chick-fil-Assholes have donated to groups like Focus On The Family & Family Research Counsil. These groups have been designated hate groups by Southern Poverty Law Center.

So, yeah, Chick-fil-Awful! Gold stars for being honest about being a bunch of backward ass bigots! Now, I’d never tell you what to do with your money. But if you don’t want to fund hate-filled rhetoric, you might want to skip eating at this place. If giving up eating a chicken sandwich makes you haz a sadz, this site has a recipe for an alternative, the Chick-fil-GAY! I know. You just can’t wait to put that in your mouth. Dirty!

    He never actually said anything anti-gay, he just summarized that he is partial to traditional family values in the same way that gay people are partial to their lifestyle. I don’t see how that’s hateful. Gay Pride happens everywhere and it’s promoted often, and it’s even endorsed in most U.S. Cities. How is it wrong for a group to endorse their values but ok for another?

    • When asked if his company was against gay marriage, he said “guilty as charged” in the interview. Call me crazy, but I personally am of the opinion that denying citizens their constitutional right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness to be hateful. I also believe that contributing millions of dollars to groups that has been labeled time and again as hate groups is an act of hate. Gay pride doesn’t deny anyone of their rights as citizens, so there really is no basis for comparison here.

      It’s OK for a group to endorse any values it wants. Even when that endorsement goes to organizations that actively seek to deny basic human rights to marginalized populations. It’s totally fine and good. But it is also the right of every living soul to make sure that everyone is aware of this endorsement and to shame people for continuing to support a business that spends money on cultural supremacy.
