Chick-fil-A Name Removed From Banners for Antigay Event

The Chick-fil-A name has been removed from banner ads promoting a marriage event sponsored by the antigay Pennsylvania Family Institute. The company tweeted that it was “looking into the issue” on Tuesday but has yet to issue an official statement. Chick-fil-A had been listed as a sponsor for February’s “The Art of Marriage” event, sponsored by the conservative, antigay group.

The company tweeted that it was “looking into the issue” on Tuesday but has yet to issue an official statement. Chick-fil-A had been listed as a sponsor for February’s “The Art of Marriage” event, sponsored by the conservative, antigay 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 reported Chick-Fil-A had supported Focus on the Family.

That group, founded by the Reverend James Dobson, endorses so-called reparative therapy programs in efforts to turn gays straight and has donated hundreds of thousand of dollars in support of antigay legislation.
