Chick-fil-A’s Cathy: “we support Biblical families”

By: Wednesday October 3, 2012 12:32 pm

ROTFLOL. The Chick-Fil-A COO just steps in it over and over. Dan Cathy spoke with 11Alive’s (WXIA-TV) Matt Pearl at the Cathy family’s ranch in Georgia. This past weekend, Cathy sidestepped questions about the controversy but did reiterate the company’s devotion to families. “Families are very important to our country,” Cathy said. “And they’re very important [...]

Chick-fil-A’s ‘new leaf’ on donating to anti-gay flips back over after one day

By: Thursday September 20, 2012 1:31 pm

Chick-fil-A’s chief operating officer boasts an anti-marriage equality rally sponsored by the fast food company in a Tweet. I guess Dan Cathy has pulled a fast one on Alderman Proco “Joe” Moreno and Illinois-based advocacy group The Civil Rights Agenda. They declared victory yesterday in an announcement that the lawmaker had negotiated an agreement with chicken sandwich [...]

Chicken Sandwich Eaters Refuse to Lay Golden Egg For NOM

By: Saturday August 11, 2012 12:59 pm

No food reward, no dice. That’s the message that Chick-fil-A’s anti-equality customers have sent Brian Brown of National Organization for Marriage in the wake of Brown’s attempt to ride the tail feathers of “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” into fundraising heaven. In an e-mail sent on Friday afternoon, Brown wrote: With “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day”—which NOM was instrumental [...]

Michelangelo Signorile on the Chick-Fil-A dustup – Where Do We Go From Here?

By: Monday August 6, 2012 12:29 pm

Over at HuffPo Gay Voices, Michelangelo Signorile does his post-mortem on the Chick-Fil-A battle, which didn’t exactlygo well for the pro-equality side, primarily because the pro-bigotry forces were aided by some self-inflicted wounds on our side that handed over the free-speech victim argument. And these people are hypocrites who cared nothing about the first amendment when [...]

‘Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day’ lets homophobes get their bigot on

By: Thursday August 2, 2012 10:50 am

The controversy also tests LGBTs and allies’ consideration of principle over tastebuds. As we’ve noted multiple times here, Chick-Fil-A Chief Operating Officer Dan Cathy’s offensive and bigoted statements about marriage equality are an expression of free speech. That’s not what the controversy is about — sadly the media has mostly taken the angle that the [...]

What Chick-fil-A’s money supports – a video montage of homophobia

By: Wednesday August 1, 2012 7:13 am

Today is “Chick-fil-A” Appreciation Day and I expect it to be a huge hit. That’s fine as far as I am concerned.  This day gives the gay community a larger platform to educate why we are angry at the restaurant chain. It’s not about it’s owner’s religious beliefs or opposition of marriage equality. There are [...]

Forbes: The Cult of Chick-fil-A – and how it boldly engages in discriminatory practices

By: Monday July 30, 2012 9:56 am

Emily Schmall at has an interesting piece on the anti-gay fast food giant Chick-Fil-A. The purveyor of waffle fries with a side of bible-based  bigotry has been for ages engaging in perfectly legal and ethically questionable ways of ensuring its franchisees adhere to their “Christian” point of view business model. And this was long [...]

Fake Christians are lying about Chick-Fil-A

By: Monday July 30, 2012 7:28 am

I have to admit that I am not totally in tune to the Chick-Fil-A controversy as much as my fellow blogging colleagues and the rest of my lgbtq brothers and sisters. But what I do see of it does bother me a bit. It’s not the boycott per se more than how folks who claim [...]

Chick-fil-A exposes NOM’s phony call for company neutrality

By: Friday July 20, 2012 7:23 am

With the news of Chick-fil-A’s stance against marriage equality, some of us were waiting for the National Organization for Marriage to show its hypocrisy. You may remember that a while back, NOM was demanding that companies in Minnesota adopt a neutral stance on the amendment the state will be voting on in regards to gay [...]
