Chick-fil-A Anti-Gay: 'Guilty as Charged'
After years of masking anti-gay policies and affiliations under a guise of friendliness, Chick-fil-A is boldly embracing one of the darker values that drives their organization: discriminating against LGBT Americans.
When questioned about Chick-fil-A's donations in a recent interview, COO Dan Cathy replied: "Guilty as charged."
In a follow-up interview, Cathy continued: "We're inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say we know better than You as to what constitutes marriage."
Join HRC in standing up to this discrimination. Sign our pledge now and let Chick-fil-A know that they are on the wrong side of history.
As support for LGBT equality grows, fair-minded customers now have the facts they need to decide whether they want to support a discriminatory company like Chick-fil-A.
I am dismayed to see Chick-fil-A's COO, Dan Cathy proudly touting his company's business decision to discriminate against LGBT Americans. Cathy claims to run Chick-fil-A based on biblical principles -- but he is ignoring the fact that the Bible calls us to treat all with love and respect.
In addition to the majority of Americans who support marriage equality, we know that a large majority of Christians -- nearly 90 percent -- say the very tenets of their faith lead them to reject discrimination against LGBT people.
As support for LGBT equality grows, fair-minded customers like myself have the facts they need to decide whether we want to support a discriminatory company like Chick-fil-A. While I respect Mr. Cathy's right to his personal opinions, I strongly urge Chick-fil-A to stop using money from customers as part of a larger effort to oppress LGBT Americans. Until then, I will have to reconsider whether I spend my money at Chick-fil-A.
