LGBT Activists Launch Boycott Against Chik-fil-A, Conservative Christians' Response: Buy "Jesus Chicken"

Chik-fil-A makes "Jesus Chicken" doncha know. And now I suppose I have to answer the inevitable question: what makes Chik-fil-A chicken so good that the Son of God has given it his personal endorsement (through his earthly representatives, of course - Jesus is big on delegating)? Because, my dear heathens, Chik-Fil-A is under siege from the dreaded Angry Angry Homosexual Hordes!

The American Family Association, a conservative Christian group, is urging people to show appreciation for the fast food chain Chick-fil-A by purchasing their products during the week of April 25-30.

The so-called "buycott" is in response to an "attack by homosexual activists against the Christian-owned Chick-fil-A company," the group said. [...]

Chick-fil-A, which has 1,550 locations in 39 states, has been accused of having deep financial ties to nationwide organizations that oppose marriage equality and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights. According to an investigation by the progressive blog EqualityMatters, the restaurant chain's charitable division has provided more than $1.1 million to anti-LGBT organizations, including the Alliance Defense Fund and Family Research Council. [...]

The president of Chick-fil-A has insisted that the company is not anti-gay, but is merely operating a business according to Biblical principles and supporting healthy families.

One of those tales about America in the post 9/11 era that you just cannot satirize. Also one of those days when I'm glad I don't eat fried chicken anymore, period.
