A chicken in a bun is still a chicken…

Wendy’s, KFC, and Mc Donald prepare chicken meals, on an assembly-line served on plastic/cardboard containers, with drinks in plastic cups covered with promo peel off stickers and give- away toys for children. All have drive through service, indoor playgrounds etc.

Chick -fil-a, a new eatery about to open in town pretty much serves similar quality of food as its competitors; and uses similar aggressive advertisement with promotional sales wild enough to keep customers standing online since the night before.

So what is different with Chic-fil-a?

Chick- fil-a owned by Dan Cathy, through his charitable arm:“The WinShape Foundation”has strong ties to anti-LGBT organizations donating millions of dollars to hate/ anti- LGBT groups such as : Focus on the Family; the Fellowship of Christian Athletes; The National Christian Foundation [NCF]; The Alliance Defense Fund [ADF]; The anti-LGBT Family Life; The Family Research Council; Serving Marriages; The Florida Family Council, and The Marriage CoMission's annual Strategy Summit among others. Of course Mr. Cathy is free to give his money to whoever he pleases…

However people who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender are not second class citizens. They are students, soldiers, paramedics, doctors, lawyers, firefighters, police officers, politicians, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, neighbors, even members of your own family or people you know.

If you don’t care about the LGBT community or careless about any form of discrimination go ahead and enjoy a piece of chicken in a bun from Chic-fil-a. I on the other hand, can’t reconcile to give my money to a company who in turn will give it to hate groups and still think their food is tasty.

After all it is just a simple piece of chicken in a bun that leaves me with a very bitter taste in my mouth.

Well Carlos, take your rod licking, fudge packing rear end some place else. Us straight people would rather see common folk in Chic-fil-A anyways. I would pay three times the price because of what and who the Cathey family supports.
