No Berenstain Bear Promotion at Chick-fil-A

      Edinboro, PA

According to the Berenstain family, "Our publisher, HarperCollins, is marketing several of their Berenstain Bears titles through a kids' meal promotion at Chick-Fil-A scheduled for August. This program was in development for over a year. We were unaware of any controversy involving Chick-Fil-A until July 25th.

The Berenstain family does not at this time have control over whether this program proceeds or not. We hope those concerned about this issue will direct their comments toward HarperCollins and Chick-Fil-A."

We ask that News Corporation along with Mr. Murray, President of Harper Collins Publishing Co. not use Berenstain Bears books for children as part of Chick-fil-A's marketing campaign.

      I won't be going to Chick-Fil-A ever again. I'm a straight woman who doesn't like all this hate crap. If you want to hate people, hate child abusers. Take a stand against something like that!

      Dan Cathy is free to hold whatever bigoted, narrow-minded, asinine, and archaic views he desires. However, when he (1) donates company profit to groups actively working to deny same-sex marriage and equal rights while also aligning with causes (such as Uganda's Kill the Gays Bill) which would make homosexuality punishable by death, and when he (2) proudly represents his sectarian personal views of denial of equal rights to an entire segment of the populous as company rhetoric, he openly invites all consumers to 'vote' with their dollars in either direction. And my direction is that I oppose my dollars going to fund Dan Cathy's provincial, intolerant, small-minded, hate mongering, homosexual bashing, anti-marriage equality, bigoted, and dogmatic pet organizations. I refuse for any of my monies to further causes and groups endorsing bigotry while opposing equal rights for an entire group of hard working, tax paying, societal supporting, charitable, and caring Americans. I support marriage equality as a civil rights issue for all.
