Chick-fil-A: WE HATE GAYS! STAY OUT!!!

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 7, 2014, 12:02 PM
Would you like your fried chicken with a side of homophobia? That's what's on offer at the Calgary International Airport, where notoriously anti-gay restaurant Chick-fil-A has just opened its first Canadian branch.

The fervently Christian American company donated nearly $2 million to anti-gay organizations in 2010, with a particular focus on lobbying against equal marriage. In 2012 its CEO Dan T. Cathy owned up to being 'guilty as charged'. He openly condemned those who “have the audacity to define what marriage is about,” saying they were “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

Chick-fil-A has been beset with boycotts and protests ever since, but this hasn't stopped it planning to expand into 108 new locations this year - including Canada.

Click the petition action.sumofus.org/a/canada-ch… to tell Chick-fil-A: we don't want your bigoted views here. Please stay out of Canada.

The fast-food giant is one of the largest privately-held restaurant chains in the US, but its public image took a nose-dive in 2012 with revelations about its anti-gay stance. Since then, some new US branches have been prevented from opening, and one was removed from the University of Atlanta campus after opposition from students.

We can do the same in Canada. The Calgary branch opened quietly with almost no publicity. Reporters who did cover the launch were told not to ask customers about the restaurant's anti-gay reputation. Chick-fil-A is clearly worried about a backlash. So let's give it one!

Sign the petition at action.sumofus.org/a/canada-ch… to show Chick-fil-A that homophobia is not welcome in Canada.

I love orchids. I tend to ignore them and they do well but they all died in the spring. When I get a chance, I'll get some more going
