"One gay employee who works at Chick-fil-A headquarters in Atlanta, Ga., and asked to remain anonymous for fear of losing his job, says a customer who came in and said he supported Dan Cathy and e.g. 'I'm so glad you don't support the queers, I can eat in peace,'"
Gabriel Aguiniga, a gay employee at a Chick-fil-A in Colorado, also said the hardest part "[it's] constantly having people come up to you and say, 'I support your company, because your company hates the gays,'" Aguiniga, 18, wrote in an email. "It really takes a toll on me."
How to Make a Chick-Fil-A Sandwich at HomeBy Lindsay Beyerstein
Adam Kuban, Creative Commons.Yesterday, countless Americans braved long lines and risked heat prostration to show their appreciation for homophobia by way of a Chick-Fil-A sandwich:
[A lady at the Northridge Chick-Fil-A] was one of many people who ventured to the restaurant to show support for Chick-fil-A, which drew criticism after chief executive Dan Cathy said in a recent interview he and his company were against gay marriage. The comments drew strong reactions as customers pledged to boycott the chain and some mayors proclaimed they would not allow Chick-fil-A to open within their cities.My foodie friends assure me that Chick-Fil-A sandwiches are the In-N-Out Burgers of the fried chicken world, the very pinnacle of fast food cravability.
In response, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee declared Wednesday "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," calling on people to eat at the restaurant to show support. [LAT]
