ATLANTA – The president of Chick-fil-A, the fast food chain with more than 1,600 restaurants and $4 billion in revenue, has come out against same-sex marriage recently. The president and his company have received a large amount of criticism for their bold stance on the hot-button issue. Despite their stance on the gay marriage issue, Chick-fil-A has pledged to still serve homosexual clients, but refuses to stop saying “faggot” under their breath.
“We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit. But if those sinners are willing to come into our restaurants and give us their money, I’ll take it. In fact, I’ll probably donate some of it to anti-gay organization,” said Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy.
The WinShape Foundation—Chick-fil-A’s charitable arm—donated more than $1.1 million between 2003 and 2008 to anti-LGBT groups, doubling that amount to $2 million in 2009.
“We know that it might not be popular with everyone,” Cathy added, “but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values, operate on biblical principles, and use the money that our gay customers give us to deprive them of basic human rights by donating their own money to anti-gay groups. It’s almost too easy.”
While interviewing Cathy at one of his restaurants, we asked one customer who was proudly wearing an LGBT t shirt, his thoughts on Chick-fil-A, “It’s his opinion. He’s entitled to it. I’m just here to eat… I can’t believe they called me a “faggot” though. This chicken better be really good.”
