I absolutely LOVE Chick-fil-A and it has been my go to “fast food” for decades. This past weekend Chick-fil-A announced that they were going to stop supporting certain Christian charities, such as the Salvation Army, that support education, homelessness and hunger in preference to non-Christian charities that support education, homelessness and hunger. Did they not hear the story of last week when Ellie Goulding who threatened to not sing at the Cowboy’s Thanksgiving halftime show if the Salvation Army didn’t jump through certain hoops proving that they serve the LGBT community. The Salvation Army DID NOT cave but simply provided the, already obvious, proof that they faithfully serve that segment of society in their commitment to not have some litmus test for who they serve. Ellie Goulding wisely walked back her threat and is going to sing.
Really, Chick-fil-A??? Can no one in your corporate office read? Does no one in your corporate office listen to the news? Are the lights even on in your board meetings so you can see your growth chart over the past 10 years? You have only benefited and grown to become the #3 fast food company in the nation as a result of support from almost every sector of American society because they could see though the pathetic accusations and attacks from the far far left (and because you make a killer chicken sandwich). Now you decide to betray that support and trust by capitulating to the far far left. What’s next, opening on Sunday? This will not end well for you as evidenced by GLADD’s response yesterday saying that you didn’t go far enough. And as sad (and hungry) as it makes me, this writer for one will choose to go elsewhere when I can from now on. Where is the nearest Popeyes anyway?
