Chick-Fil-A: Est. In Hateful, Georgia

Posted on

id=”attachment_917″ “Hate the sinner, love the chicken sandwich.”

Chick-Fil-A President, Dan Cathy is on the defense against gay blogs after his company (and meal ticket!) was caught greasy-handed supporting an anti-gay conference series called “The Art of Marriage” in Pennsylvania. He digs his hole deeper by telling us, “Marriage has long been a focus of Chik-Fil-A, starting with my own mom and…”, and the he hesitates at the 1:10 mark. Mom and what? Mom and Aunt Linda? Mom and her ladyfriends? Mom and dad? Oh.

The video below, which honestly does little to change my opinion of Chick-Fil-A’s homophobic business dealings, is intriguing if only for the various oddities that appear throughout it. For instance, did you know that Chick-Fil-A was started in Hateful, Georgia in 1946? Check the 0:10 mark! We can’t make this stuff up!

Tell us the other tiks you catch below. And just remember, he is lying to you. His video is filmed from the chest up so you can’t see that his pants are on fire! Chick-Fil-A has a long history of anti-gay donations and support, and they do not deserve your lunch money.

  • Chcik-Fil-A Mom

    I live in HAPEVILLE, GA where Chick-Fil-A was founded in 1946 (NOT 1961). I am an out and proud lesbian whose own child works for Chick-Fil-A. We are always welcome there as a family. True, the founding Cathy family are conservative Christians who have long supported common Christian causes. However, that is their right. Furthermore, the vast majority of Chick-Fil-A locations are individually, not corporate, owned. Please keep in mind that there are, undoubtedly, Chick-Fil-A owners who have gay and lesbian family members who they are supporting and in fact employ.

  • Ex-Southern Baptist

    I am a gay man, also from the south and I agree with Chcik-Fil-A Mom that is it OLD news that the Cathy family support their religious beliefs… but I also knew gay and lesbians who worked for the company with no problems. I attended a conservative southern baptist college in Alabama, and the Cathy family were very generous and they were genuinely warm sincere people… albeit, misguided concerning gays and lesbians, but then, my dad is a retired southern baptist minister and my family still thinks I’m going to hell … rofl.. but otherwise, they are kind, gentle people.. so, what’s one to do?

  • Not-Hiding-My-Name Kerry Wano

    I have to admit, I was pulled in by this at first. Then, after seeing Dan Cathy’s statement, I remembered that most restaurants are franchises, and, subsequently, independently owned and operated.

    For an organization that is so against hate, this sure was a quick jump to hate. Someone did not do their research. Hateful Georgia? Really? It takes just a few clicks to find out where they are founded.

    It’s incidents like this that have coined the term ‘race card.’ Is that what this is turning into? Are we really going to keep going to extremes until we are simply playing the ‘sexuality card?’

  • We’re big believers here in voting with our dollars. In no way am I detracting from the fact that many LGBT employees work for the company. I believe their accounts that they are treated fairly on the job, as well.

    I do take umbrage with any organization or business that transforms money gay consumers spend with them into financial support for organizations that would do that gay community harm. This is clearly the case with Chick-Fil-A.

    It’s well documented, and it’s been going on for years. A quick snapshot here:
