Okay, so you take one mid-grade piece of chicken, bread it in such a way that the grease just sort of rolls onto your tongue, grab a bun, no, not a good one, preferably a fairly cheap one that isn’t strong enough to sustain said piece of chicken, and then you go to the pantry and find a couple pre-sliced pickles and stick them on there haphazardly, and then you spend millions on an ad campaign featuring dyslexic, uneducated cattle with hearts of gold, in order to hide the fact that your secret chicken sandwich recipe is something that a resourceful five year-old could replicate with a microwave and a bag of Tyson chicken breasts, and probably better. Then you sell that awful stomach-churning thing to people for about twice what Wendy’s charges for something far better. Profit! Then you take all that money and, along the way, give over $1.1 million to groups that work tirelessly to teach Americans to hate gay people.
This is the heartwarming story of Chick-Fil-A, revealed in an investigation by Equality Matters:
When two Missouri organizations, the Clayton Chamber of Commerce and FOCUS St. Louis, decided earlier this month to cancel a presentation by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy over his company’s controversial affiliations, they made the right decision. Although Cathy has unequivocally denied being anti-LGBT and claimed that he and the company have “no agenda against anyone” and “will not champion any political agendas on marriage and family,” Equality Matters research proves just the opposite. In fact, the company has strong, deep ties to anti-gay organizations like Focus on the Family and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and its charitable division has provided more than $1.1 million to organizations that deliver anti-LGBT messages and promote egregious practices like reparative therapy that seek to “free” people of being gay.
Not only that, but some of that money has gone to known hate group affiliates! And Truett Cathy doesn’t confine his bigotry to “charitable” giving either, but even extends it to his own employees:
Chick-Fil-A’s Employment Practices Are Hostile Towards “Sinful” Candidates. Chick-fil-A requires potential franchise operators do disclose their marital status, number of dependents, and involvement in social, church, and other organizations. Employees may be fired for engaging in “sinful” behavior, and Truett Cathy has said he aims to hire workers who are married.
Nice. Also, they are not open on Sundays, which has been proven to be the only day people get cravings for their vile “food.”
Read the whole thing, and then never go there again.
