Chick-fil-A and Focus on the Family: Not fans of gays

The Christian-backed purveyor, whose pleasure it is to serve the best damn chicken nuggets ever made, is currently in the news for a fun development: Chick-fil-A? Not a fan of gay folks, says Change.org. And like me — with regards to their hate-filled, yet delicious, hunky chunks of white cock meat — guess who those chicken-lovers can't get enough of? Good ol' FotF.

And so it goes like this: Chick-fil-A is a restaurant where franchises frequently donate to anti-gay organizations like the Pennsylvania Family Institute, Focus on the Family and others. The restaurant's charitable arm, WinShape, holds conferences for opponents of gay marriage and praises their work. And this charitable arm's retreat program puts a blanket ban on gay couples using their facilities, because they "do not accept homosexual couples."

Yet the president of Chick-fil-A still says that all people, including LGBT people, are treated with respect by the restaurant? Huh, what a funny definition of respect.

The whole rigamarole began over at the website Good As You, where the function of the restaurant's WinShape organization began to take, uh, shape. Click here for the entire backstory, including a video of Focus president Jim Daly at a conference sponsored by the restaurant's nonprofit, and here to leave comments on the company's Facebook page like this:
