Eat no'' mo'' chikin: Chick-fil-A - We Explicitly Do Not Like Same-Sex Couple

The sad thing is, Chick-fil-A's sandwiches (and its chicken noodle soup and diet lemonade) are tasty, but talk about leaving a nasty taste in your mouth with this bigotry. (Change.org):

Bet Chick-fil-A wishes this month would end. Over the past few weeks, the restaurant chain's deep ties to the anti-gay movement have been exposed and uncovered by a number of activists, most notably Jeremy Hooper at Good As You. Whether it's Focus on the Family, the National Organization for Marriage, the Pennsylvania Family Institute, or Exodus International, Chick-fil-A ties run deep. Of course, the President of Chick-fil-A wants gay people to share no hard feelings. The restaurant will gladly feed homosexuals gobs of chicken sandwiches, after all. But when it comes to marriage, Chick-fil-A believes strongly that same-sex couples just don't deserve equal rights.

As we wrote about a few weeks ago, Chick-fil-A's charitable arm, the WinShape Foundation, has been particularly active in the fight against marriage equality. They've hosted conferences with some of the leading opponents of gay marriage in this country. A higher up at WinShape has even praised the efforts of anti-gay activist David Blankenhorn for working against marriage equality, and for articulating a solid reason why American culture should reject same-sex couples.

Now comes some email correspondence that Good As You has shared on their blog, where the WinShape Foundation's Retreat Center -- a center run by the charitable arm of Chick-fil-A -- admits that they have a severe distaste for LGBT people.

The email correspondence goes a little something like this. Someone writes WinShape an easy question about whether their retreat center is open to LGBT people. WinShape's response:

"WinShape Retreat defines marriage from the Biblical standard as being between one man and one woman. Groups/Individuals are welcome who offer wholesome, educational conferences and programs that are compatible with Biblical values and WinShape's purpose," WinShape wrote back. ..."We do not accept homosexual couples because of the statement in our contract."

They sure like homos to contribute to the bottom line, but no marriage for you...

Someone should point out to them that marriage in the bible had nothing to do with one man and one woman who want to be together for life. Mostly it's polygamy and enforced/arranged marriages.

This is not "new" news. It has been known for many years what a bigoted prick the founder has been.

Never been to a Chick-fil-A but I heard they play Jesus music in their stores. No thanks!

Is there anyone here who's actually eaten there? I knew they were fundies, so I've never given them one dime.

Exxon, Target and Chick-fil-A. Leading anti-gay Corporate America.

I've known this for quite some time. I have never been to a chik-fil-a and will never to to one either. They're just a bunch of chicken murders anyway. I never eat murdered meat, I love my veggies.

I'm vegan, so fuck them. Boycotting their fries and I'm going to spread the word. Same with evil Exxon.

On the bright side, Truett Cathy will be dead soon enough. Of course his son is probably just like him.

I drove all the way to Redondo Beach to try a Chick-fil-A sandwich -- not easy to find them in the LA area. WTF? it's chicken on a mucilaginous bun. Pass.

Shouldn't you be in church, r15? Chick-Fil-Hate is closed on Sundays so you can go plop your fat ass in a pew and hate homos together.
