Help stop the anti-gay support at the Chick-fil-A restaurants in St. Louis

140
Supporters

This restaurant is a menace to the LGBT community. They're raising over 2 million dollars now to support against LGBT rights including marriage equality.

Chick-fil-A is “very much supportive of the family,” according to Dan Cathy, president of the popular fast food chain. That is, “the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said. And that doesn’t include Adam and Steve, suggests Cathy, whose father S. Truett Cathy founded the Atlanta-based company. In a new interview with Baptist Press, Cathy puts on the record what critics say his company’s actions have indicated for years. “Well, guilty as charged,” he said in the interview when asked about Chick-fil-A’s backing of families led by a man and a woman. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives,” Cathy said. The chain, according to the report, has 1,608 restaurants, sales of more than $4 billion and employees who are trained “to focus on values rooted in the Bible.” Chick-fil-A's across the country shut down on Sundays. “We don’t claim to be a Christian business," Cathy said. "But as an organization we can operate on biblical principles.”

We must stop Chick-fil-A from getting support for anti-gay issues by removing the restaurants in St. Louis.

Stop supporting Chick-fil-A

This restaurant is a menace to the LGBT community. They're raising over 2 million dollars now to support against LGBT rights including marriage equality.

Chick-fil-A is “very much supportive of the family,” according to Dan Cathy, president of the popular fast food chain. That is, “the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said. And that doesn’t include Adam and Steve, suggests Cathy, whose father S. Truett Cathy founded the Atlanta-based company. In a new interview with Baptist Press, Cathy puts on the record what critics say his company’s actions have indicated for years. “Well, guilty as charged,” he said in the interview when asked about Chick-fil-A’s backing of families led by a man and a woman. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives,” Cathy said. The chain, according to the report, has 1,608 restaurants, sales of more than $4 billion and employees who are trained “to focus on values rooted in the Bible.” Chick-fil-A's across the country shut down on Sundays. “We don’t claim to be a Christian business," Cathy said. "But as an organization we can operate on biblical principles.”

We must stop Chick-fil-A from getting support by shutting down the restaurants around St. Louis!
