Fast Food and Antigay Family Values Go Together at Chick-fil-A

Fast Food and Antigay Family Values Go Together at Chick-fil-A

Nationwide fast food chain Chick-fil-A has thrown its support behind “The Art of Marriage,” a series of antigay marriage conferences being held next month in south-central Pennsylvania. Chick-fil-A is backing events in Harrisburg and Reading, and while promotional materials for the events aren’t specifically antigay, the Family Institute is Pennsylvania’s largest antigay, anti–marriage equality group.

Nationwide fast food chain Chick-fil-A has thrown its support behind “The Art of Marriage,” a series of antigay marriage conferences being held next month in south-central Pennsylvania.

On February 11 and 12, the Pennsylvania Family Institute and Chick-fil-A will sponsor two events, designed to “help couples apply what the Bible teaches about marriage in a powerful way,” according toGoodAsYou.org.

Chick-fil-A is backing events in Harrisburg and Reading, and while promotional materials for the events aren’t specifically antigay, the Family Institute is Pennsylvania’s largest antigay, anti–marriage equality group.

This isn’t the first time the restaurant chain has been taken to task for its support of antigay groups. In 2009, Change.org reportedChick-fil-A had supported Focus on the Family.

That group, founded by the Reverend James Dobson, supports reparative therapy programs and has donated hundreds of thousand of dollars to passing antigay legislation.

Calls to Chick-fil-A for comment were not returned by press time.

Here's a video promoting “The Art of Marriage.”
