Chick-fil-A is Anti-Gay

Fast-food chain Chick-fil-A is sponsoring a conference of the Pennsylvania Family Institute (PFI), a rabidly anti-same sex marriage group.

Chick-fil-A, known for their clever advertising and their religious-based closed-on-Sundays policy, is also a  notoriously homophobic enterprise. In 2009 the company supported Focus on the Family, a group that advocates therapy to “cure” homosexuals of their “affliction.” The group once launched an anti-gay website that declared “dogs aren’t born mooing and people aren’t born gay.

Focus on the Family has also spent hundreds of thousands of dollars lobbying against civil rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Americans.

The February PFI conference, called “The Art of Marriage,” is designed to “help couples apply what the Bible teaches about marriage in a powerful way.”

While this particular event is not expected to focus on anti- same-sex marriage, PFI is Pennsylvania’s largest antigay, anti-marriage equality group.
