Chick-fil-A is a successful American fast food chain. Based in the Atlanta area, the chain has over 1600 restaurants in 39 states and Washington, D.C.
As the name suggests, the Chick-fil-A chain specializes in chicken, not beef products.
It’s also the sponsor of the annual college football game played in Atlanta, formerly known as the Peach Bowl and now simply the “Chick-fil-A Bowl.”
The company is owned by the Cathy family. The Cathys are devout Baptists. One of the company’s hallmarks is that it closes on Sundays, almost unheard of for a fast food chain.
Many customers like the restaurant’s food, and Chick-fil-A has done well. But now it faces protests, criticism and a harsh challenge. Why?
The company has dared to offend the Radical Gay Movement. That’s a movement that carries a lot of clout in our society today.
So what has Chick-fil-A done to hurt homosexual people?
it refused to serve gay customers? No.
Has it fired employees for being gay? No.
Has the company supported violence against homosexuals? No.
The Chick-fil-A folks are not accused of any direct attacks against gay individuals.
Chick-fil-A’s president Dan Cathy and his company are being attacked for opposing the Gay Agenda. In this day and age, that’s enough to land you in hot water.
A lot of corporations donate money to various causes, and some support the Gay Agenda. Chick-fil-A, on the other hand, has donated money to several organizations which oppose gay marriage and the Radical Gay Agenda. This has made the company a target.
When interviewed by Baptist Press, Chick-fil-A, President Dan Cathy affirmed that "We are very much supportive of the family - the biblical definition of the family unit.”
On a later talk show interview, Mr. Cathy stated that "I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage'. I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."
Many Americans would agree and besides, doesn’t Mr. Cathy have the freedom to speak his mind?
To the Radical Homosexual Movement, to oppose the Agenda is to become a target.
Note too that the company is not actively involved in the political dispute over gay marriage. Its website states that “our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”
But it doesn’t matter. Dan Cathy, by his donations and comments, has dared to oppose the Radical Gay Agenda.
As a result of the publicity, several mayors have threatened to block the chain’s expansion in their cities.
The mayor of Boston (founded by Puritans) said Chick-fil-A could not open restuarants in his city. Mayor Menino proclaimed that "We are indeed full of pride for our support of same sex marriage and our work to expand freedom for all people."
“Freedom for all people”? Or just freedom for those who support the Gay Agenda?
In Chicago there’s already one Chick-fil-A, but the the mayor and an alderman oppose the construction of a second. You’d think in Chicago they’d be more concerned about the high murder rate, but then, what do I know?
In San Francisco, a city named for a medieval saint, the mayor declared on his Twitter that he’s "Very disappointed Chick-Fil-A doesn't share San Francisco's values & strong commitment to equality for everyone." The next tweet was a threat: "Closest Chick-Fil-A to San Francisco is 40 miles away & I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer."
There is also talk of gay activists storming Chick-fil-A restaurants and kissing each other as a form of protest. Just what you wanted to see while eating a chicken sandwich, right?
What is this really all about? It’s about the power of the Radical Gay Agenda in our society. If you oppose the Radical Gay Agenda, you become a target.
This is not an issue of discrimination against gays. That’s not the issue. Nowadays it’s those who oppose the Radical Gay Agenda who are trouble.
The goal of the Radical Gay Agenda is not for homosexuals to be protected and left alone. The goal is the transformation of the family and of society. And they’re going after your children.
This is not just a problem in the U.S.A., it’s going on in various Western countries.
Last summer my family and I visited Mexico City, to see the traditional tourist sites (see here). What we hadn’t planned on was winding up in the middle of a Gay Pride festival (see my article about it here).
It was an educational experience. If you’ve seen one, you know what I mean.

We were passing through the crowd to return to our hotel. I was walking with my 11-year old son, and my wife with our 8-year old. A participating individual taunted my wife (in Spanish) , saying, “When your son grows up, he's going to be like me."
That’s the agenda.
Many of the supporters of Chick-fil-A are planning to eat at one of their restaurants on August 1st, as a show of solidarity (and to support the company financially).
If you support Chick-fil-A against the onslaught of the Radical Gay Movement, I suggest you eat at their restaurant from time to time to support the chain. It’s the principle of the thing.
