Chick-fil-A Goes Antigay ... Again

Chick-fil-A Goes Antigay ... Again


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 to

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, reported Chick-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.

A representative for Chick-fil-A tweeted on Tuesday that the company was looking into the sponsorship and would release a statement shortly.
