Demand Chick-fil-A Pull Sponsorship from Anti-Gay Event

You might like the tasty pickles that they put on their chicken sandwiches, but if you're eating at Chick-fil-A, you're also eating at an establishment that partners with some of the most ferocious anti-gay groups around.

Take a look at an event scheduled for February 2011, co-sponsored by Chick-fil-A and the Pennsylvania Family Institute, the leading anti-gay group in the Keystone State and a group that has worked hard to try and pass a constitutional amendment in Pennsylvania banning same-sex marriage.

The February event co-sponsored by Chick-fil-A is called "The Art of Marriage," and it's intended to be a launching point for Pennsylvania to return to "the biblical definition of marriage." Given the work of the Pennsylvania Family Institute, it's hard not to see where this event is going to go -- straight for the jugular of anyone who supports marriage equality for same-sex couples.

The Pennsylvania Family Institute has been a leading opponent of marriage equality, and has condemned the expansion of civil rights for same-sex couples. They've called same-sex marriage a threat to children, argued that same-sex marriage destroys civilization, and said that gay couples hurt families.

Is this the type of politics that Chick-fil-A wants to support? Send the restaurant chain a message asking them why they're partnering with such extreme anti-gay groups, and urge them to pull their sponsorship from this February 2011 event with the Pennsylvania Family institute.

      I only know of this place as a feeding ground in and around shopping malls in Jersey and across the river in Pa. Pretty bizarre for the entire chain of franchises to compete with Sbarro, the local Asian "food courtiers" and the bigger guys by giving the public another reason to go elsewhere. Maybe they're drumming up business for Michele Bachmann's husband: you know, the guy who gets federal money by running a psych clinic that "cures" gay!

      I've never even heard of this place, but I'm not gonna eat there after this. This is an awful decision moral-wise--and business-wise. Remember, gay people eat too!

      Chick-fil-A, why would you spread even more hatred? Think about how much misunderstanding and hatred there is in this world already. Business wise alone, you should at least stay neutral. Duh.

      Chick-fil-a you have officially lost my business and my partners. We are relgious and go to church too. If you want to go back to the "biblical defintinon of marriage" maybe you should be living by everything that the old testament says, hope you are not wearing any clothing made of more than one type of material.

      I've never eaten anything from Chick-fil-a, and after signing this petition, I'll stick with my home-cooked meals from now on.
