Every few years and now, every few months I see an article being passed around with the breaking news that Chick-Fil-A donated money to an anti-gay group. Then I see the stream of comments from people who are shocked by this. Really? Are these the same people that were shocked by Elton John came out as gay?
I have been boycotting Chick-Fil-A since my radio show back in 2001. While I am glad others are joining the boycott, it amazes me that progressives weren’t doing it already.
Anyone who has ever eaten at Chick-Fil-A and most people who have not eaten there are well aware that the restaurant is closed on Sunday. Even more than their chicken, that is what the place is known for. Why oh why would they be closed on Sunday? Could it be so that they could restock their kitchen? Or maybe they didn’t think it was profitable to be open on Sunday. No, everyone who has ever heard of Chick-Fil-A is well aware of why they are closed on Sunday. It is no secret and the owners put out a big sign on their store every Sunday explaining exactly why they are closed on Sunday.
Shocker, they are a religious chain. In fact, they are so religious that they are willing to lose money by closing their restaurant on Sundays. Now, I’m not saying that all super religious people hate gays (although the Bible has made it clear where God stands on the issue), but I am saying that most highly religious people do hate gays and/or see homosexuality as a sin.
So when you know a business is extremely religious, the first thought that should come to your mind is whether or not they are anti-gay. It is almost assumed that they are unless they specifically say that they aren’t. So how can anyone really still be surprised that Chick-Fil-A is anti-gay?
