Gays Protest Chick-fil-A

A few dozen Gay Rights activists gathered outside of the newly opened Chick-fil-A location in Hollywood, CA this last Saturday to protest what they call Chick-fil-A’s anti-gay policies. The protesters claim that the company contributes to groups that openly oppose gay rights including Focus on the Family and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Chick-fil-A released the following statement in response to the accusation:

“At Chick-fil-A, we have a genuine commitment to hospitality for all of our guests. We are not anti-anybody and have no agenda, policy or position against anyone as some continue to confuse with misleading reports. We have a 65-year history of providing hospitality for all people and, as a dedicated family business, serving and valuing everyone regardless of their beliefs or opinions. We support a number of organizations that enrich the communities where we serve daily. Some of these organizations are faith-based and marriage focused and others are not. These donations have not been given to support an anti-gay political agenda.”
