Chick-fil-A is Anti-Gay but Mostly Just Cares about 'Creating Raving Fans'

New, 1 comment

As you may have heard, Chick-fil-A donates lots of money to anti-gay organizations and finally came out of the politically correct closet earlier this week to announce that, yes, actually, they are, as charged, guilty of being against marriage equality.

Today, the company tweeted that their "mission is to create raving fans; we plan to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the political arena," and issued a statement on Facebook that reads, "From the day Truett Cathy started the company, he began applying biblically-based principles to managing his business. For example, we believe that closing on Sundays, operating debt-free and devoting a percentage of our profits back to our communities are what make us a stronger company and Chick-fil-A family."

Here's the full statement:

The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.

Chick-fil-A is a family-owned and family-led company serving the communities in which it operates. From the day Truett Cathy started the company, he began applying biblically-based principles to managing his business. For example, we believe that closing on Sundays, operating debt-free and devoting a percentage of our profits back to our communities are what make us a stronger company and Chick-fil-A family.

Our mission is simple: to serve great food, provide genuine hospitality and have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.
