Another Reason to Avoid Chick-fil-A

A little more than a year ago, I posted about why atheists should avoid Chick-fil-A restaurants. I'm happy to report that I have not spent one cent at a Chick-fil-A since writing that post. Many of the responses to that post were positive, but some protested that they like the food too much to stop eating it. Well, now you have another reason to rethink your reluctance to exercise the power of your wallet.

According to Metro Weekly, the Pennsylvania Family Institute has been sponsored by Chick-fil-A. Why should we care? The Institute is an anti-gay organization.

It is hard to imagine that this news will sway many people who refuse to stop eating at Chick-fil-A. After all, we already know that they support the Christian extremist group, Focus on the Family. So their support for anti-gay bigotry is already fairly clear.

Still, maybe some people will be inspired to pay more attention to what they are supporting with their money. We can always hope, right?
