Chick-Fil-A Responds to Antigay Event


The restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A has responded to outcries about its sponsorship of a rally supporting "traditional marriage" in Pennsylvania, saying it provides food for several kinds of events.

The statement confirmed that a Pennsylvania franchisee was sending food to an event for the Pennsylvania Family Institute as its members work to protect "traditional marriage" in the state.

"As our fans, you know we do our best to serve our local communities, and one of the ways we do that is by providing food to schools, colleges, civic groups, businesses, places of worship, not-for-profit groups, etc.," the business postedThursday on its Facebook page. "At his discretion, the local Operator agreed to simply provide a limited amount of food. Our Chick-fil-A Operators and their employees try very hard every day to go the extra mile in serving ALL of our customers with honor, dignity and respect."

According to, Chick-Fil-A is also supporting an event next week that includes the Focus on the Family Institute and has provided food for events by the American Family Association and the Family Research Council in the past.
