If there’s one thing the left hates more than President Trump, it’s the Christian fast food giant “Chick-fil-A.”
Nothing can froth up a liberal pie-hole faster than mentioning a delicious golden brown and tender Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich.
The left absolutely hates Chick-fil-A because they are a Christian company that lives by the teachings of the Bible, and does not support gay marriage.
The company leadership strongly believes what the Bible teaches – that marriage is between a man and woman. Period. And that’s okay. That’s their religion and their faith, and this is America, where freedom of religion is supposed to reign supreme. It doesn’t matter what Obama and the SCOTUS decide – those politicized decisions have no impact on a person’s personal believe system or faith, I don’t care how progressive and diverse it is.
But that’s not how the left operates. See, in their tyrannical progressive world, you’re not allowed to believe in what you want, and live and let live.
The LGBTQ Alphabet Mafia demands that you not only accept them, but celebrate their lifestyle as well. This is the oh-so-tolerant and loving left at work. You must love and celebrate them, while they demonize and tear you apart.
The controversy began in 2011 when Towleroad, a blog focused on news about gay and transgender issues, posted the headline: “If you’re eating Chick-fil-A, you’re eating anti-gay.” The headline was in response to the company’s support of a seminar hosted by the Pennsylvania Family Institute, which opposes same-sex marriage.
In 2012, Dan T. Cathy, the son of the founder of Chick-fil-A, said he was “guilty as charged” when asked about his opposition to gay marriage. Years later, he said he regretted his comments but that his views hadn’t changed.
In response to the backlash, the company said it would stop donating to all political groups and those opposed to gay rights. But critics say the company has broken that pledge by donating to groups such as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, whose student leadership application says “neither heterosexual sex outside of marriage nor any homosexual act constitute an alternative lifestyle acceptable to God.” [Washington Examiner]
So, as you can imagine, there have been a slew of liberal boycotts against the fast food chain. They vowed to destroy Chick-fil-A and take them down.

Well, better luck next time lads, because these boycotts have all been in vain. Sales at Chick-fil-A have never been better. They’ve more than doubled since the left started their miserable boycotts.
That’s what I call WINNING.
Chick-fil-A has more than doubled its annual sales since gay rights advocates called for a boycott of the chicken chain restaurant after it was revealed nearly a decade ago that the company donated to organizations that opposed same-sex marriage.
In 2018, the company had $10.5 billion in total sales, becoming the third-largest chain in the nation behind Starbucks ($20.5 billion) and McDonald’s ($38.5 billion). It was a 16.7% increase in sales from the year prior.
An analysis credited the growth to a variety of factors, including the opening of nearly 700 more locations in recent years, low start-up costs, and digital sales via delivery apps.
There are now more than 2,400 locations nationwide, and the $10,000 in startup costs for an operator are significantly lower than the costs needed to open a McDonald’s.
The company’s growth has happened despite the calls for a boycott. [Washington Examiner]
