Gays and Chick-fil-A back together again?
The Kansas City Star
Back on Aug. 1, many Chick-fil-A customers flocked to the stores to show support for the company’s anti-gay stands.
And, yes, to buy some darn good tasting chicken sandwiches.
Meanwhile, gay customers and their supporters called for boycotts of Chick-fil-A and put pressure on government officials to deny permission to build future stores.
But now it turns out Chick-fil-A may be changing its mind and will no longer discriminate against its gay customers by contributing large amounts of dollars to anti-gay groups.
The pressure applied in some cities, especially Chicago and on college campuses, seems to have worked.
Hopefully, conservatives who favor the anti-gay agenda will at least concede in this case that the market worked: City governments and universities that have the power to decide whether businesses can locate in their markets worked with Chick-fil-A to change its ways, and the company responded correctly.
The customers who showed up on Aug. 1 to back Chick-fil-A now have the perfect right to not eat at the chicken franchise because it is abandoning its anti-gay stance.
Or, they can keep showing up to eat some darn good tasting chicken.
