I could make bad puns about the disgusting combo of a pickle on a chicken sandwich, but I'll let the article speak for itself.
Take a look at an event scheduled for February 2011, co-sponsored by Chick-fil-A and the Pennsylvania Family Institute, the leading anti-gay group in the Keystone State and a group that has worked hard to try and pass a constitutional amendment in Pennsylvania banning same-sex marriage.
The February event co-sponsored by Chick-fil-A is called “The Art of Marriage,” and it's intended to be a launching point for Pennsylvania to return to “the biblical definition of marriage.” Given the work of the Pennsylvania Family Institute, it's hard not to see where this event is going to go — straight for the jugular of anyone who supports marriage equality for same-sex couples.
The events take place:
- Harrisburg/Camp Hill: Christian Life Assembly
- Reading: Glad Tidings Assembly of God Church
If you've read this blog, you probably recall that the Pennsylvania Family Institute are rabidly anti-gay folks. They firmly believe in ballot initiatives as the Will of God or some such thing. The timing of these pro-marriage “conferences” coming on the heels of Darryl Metcalfe's latest mischief is not pleasant tidings for Pennsylvania gays.
Not to go all boycottey on you, but I'd rethink a visit to Chick-Fil-A in the near future. Why give your money to a company that thinks we are second class citizens and not entitled to marriage equality (and a heck of a lot more rights, my friends)?
