Chick-Fil-A gets more support (*that helps us more than it helps them)

I'm posting a longer than normal excerpt from Bryan Fischer's latest column because you really must see the level of seething, unhinged contempt that he holds for us: President Dan Cathy, who to this point has been somewhat reticent in...

Chick-fil-a: 'Going forward, our intent is to leave policy debate over same-sex marriage to govt., political arena'

Social conservatives have defended the company and shot the many messengers who brought the facts to light. But clearly Chick-fil-a is rattled by their President and COO's choice to say that "prideful, arrogant" gay marriage supporters "are inviting God's judgment...

With latest comments, Chick-fil-a can no longer deny anti-LGBT feelings

Let me say, first and foremost, that I, a vegetarian who lives in a city where only one of the restaurant's chains is within a twenty mile driving distance, am really not that personally invested in the Chick-fil-A thing. Some...

Audio: Chick-fil-A President & COO Dan Cathy says 'arrogant' same-sex marriage = 'shaking fist at God', 'invites God judgment'

If Chick-fil-A wanted to get beyond their anti-LGBT controversy, this wasn't the way to do it. Take it away, company president and COO Dan Cathy: "(1:05)…I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist...

Chick-fil-A's flippant response to years of LGBT controversy: 'Guilty as charged'

Chick-fil-A has come under fire over the past few years for its strategy retreats featuring anti-equality speakers, its expressed policies against gay couples (married or otherwise) staying at its WinShape retreat centers, and considerable financing of organizations that work to...

The other side's work is rarely limited to marriage; coverage of their work shouldn't be either

There are few people in America who are more pro-marriage-equality than I am. Not just politically, but personally. I seize any and every opportunity to have the conversation, even when it might be a difficult one, proudly stating the facts...

Donations to anti-gay groups: Chick in, not for little

Remember back to the first of the year, when I unearthed all of those connections between Chick-Fil-A, the fast food chain's gay-excluding Winshape Foundation, and this nation's "protect marriage" (aka "ban gays") movement? Right, Well -- that story's not going...

SPLC 'hate group' plans to inundate Chick-fil-A with paper: Worse for environment or Chick's PR dept?

Ya know, it's interesting --- the American Family Association surely thinks they are helping with this effort: [SOURCE] But one has to wonder: Does the fast food chain, which has been so eager to downplay the eyebrow-raisers that have surrounded...

Video: Chick-Fil-A → WinShape → LoveisHere.com → Marriage experts who stand against our own

- Reminder: LoveIsHere.com is a project of Chick Fil-A's Winshape Foundation. The same WinShape foundation whose retreat center explicitly bans gay couples and hosts annual "protect marriage" seminars that have featured a host of anti-equality speakers. The same Winshape Foundation...

Fil-AFA: Getting our Chicks in a row was the goal, so mission accomplished

During the whole Chick-fil-A brouhaha, some people, both conservative and not, wanted to attach false motives to this site's work. People said we were calling for a boycott, when we never did. Others accused us of twisting items that we...

Pride in sponsorship: Regardless of intent, all companies need to own advocacy

In a Tweet to RedState.com's Erick Erickson, Peter LaBarbera makes this point regarding the Chick-Fil-A controversy: [SOURCE] But while Pete is attempting to spin the Chick thing as the "gotcha" liberal media coming down on conservatives, what he's really doing...

Chick-Fil-A head makes another statement; we truly hope this can be our last

Here's what Chick-Fil-A defenders don't understand: The more they shoot the messenger, the more we're going to dig up new messages!

First some background: The WinShape Retreat Center on Berry College’s mountain campus is just the kind of development to advance Martha Berry’s vision, said Don “Bubba” Cathy, senior vice president of Chick-fil-A, at the retreat center’s grand opening on Wednesday....

Our bottom line is equality. Businesses can decide if ours benefits or threatens their own

In light of the whole Chick-Fil-A brouhaha of this past week, we keep getting the same note from the company's defenders. Whether in email or in forums, both on this site and elsewhere, there's this idea that by simply making...

This post will build on our last one, in which we highlighted some level of connection between Chick-Fil-A's WinShape Foundation and Jennifer Roback Morse's Ruth Institute (an affiliate of the National Organization For Marriage). So if you haven't read that...

Chick-Fil-A's WinShape Foundation: Now partnering with NOM's Ruth Institute

Okay so this is going to take a little explanation. But stick with it. It's a good find, especially in light of the recent Chick-Fil-A/Pennsylvania Family Institute sponsorship controversy and Chick-Fil-A's corporate silence on the matter. So alright, let's begin...

The one where Michael Geer lies about this site

Our initial post on Chick-Fil-A's supposed partnership with the Pennsylvania Family Institute for its upcoming "Art of Marriage" seminar did one thing and one thing only: It showed the flyer for the event, noted PFI's mention of Chick-Fil-A being a...

Chick-fil out: Pennsylvania Family sponsorship seems grounded

Very interesting: Either Chick-Fil-A has pulled sponsorship from the upcoming Pennsylvania Family Institute/Family Life effort, or the person responsible for the promotional materials (on PFI/Family Life's end) has chosen to mask the fried sandwich company's name: Chick-Fil-A Vanishes From Anti-Gay...
