The Way It Is, Like It Or Not...
A meticulously researched piece loaded with citations for every claim on why the Chick-fil-A story is more than some CEO saying something people disagreed with and a “hate mob” punishing him for it.
Chick-Fil-A has never discriminated. Its CEO, Dan Cathy, in a Baptist Press interview, merely declared his support for the biblical definition of marriage. And the Cathy family have been wrongly and viciously maligned in the press.
None of these statements are accurate, despite that pundits, the press, the religious right, and so many Republicans, have been repeating them for weeks. The real truth is Chick-Fil-A for years has been donating money to groups actively engaged in attacking gay people, advancing the dangerous practice of “ex-gay” reparative therapy, working to prevent same-sex marriage equality, and even supporting a certified anti-gay hate group.
