Chick-fil-A Unveils Biscuits & Bigotry
After outrage spread over the Internet, the chain's name was erased from the website promoting the event, but no word yet on whether the sponsorship has been cancelled. A tweet from the Georgia-based company on Tuesday stated "For those seeing reports of a CFA sponsorship w/ the Penn Family Inst, we are looking into the issue and will provide a response ASAP."
This isn't the first time Chick-fil-A has found itself in the deep-fryer of controversy. Back in 2009, it supported Rev. James Dobson's anti-gay Focus on the Family group. Apparently, the unconventional marrying of pickles and chickens are fine, but when it comes to human beings, Chick-fil-A sticks to a more conformist pecking order.
Good As You's bottom line: "If you're binding your cash with this fast food restaurant's fowl, you're in some way giving resources to those who hope to foul Keystone State gays' marriage plans. Plan your fried carnivorousness accordingly."
