Since 1995, Chick-fil-A’s advertisements have been presented from the perspective of comedic, black and white cows. Looking through Chick-fil-A’s brief history, the American food chain reveals a story about a group of “fearless cows, acting in enlightened self-interest” who realized that “when people eat chicken, they don’t eat them.”
What kind of lesson does this impose on the minds of young children who delight themselves in a innocent chicken sandwich?
“Eat mor chikin -Cowz”
It is peculiar to note how the general population has only recently picked up on their anti-LGBT stance as their ad campaigns have been rooted in bigotry for nearly twenty years.
Wasn’t the purpose of the Nuremberg Trials in 1945-46 to punish Germany for their heinous crimes during WWII where the Nazi government decimated a devastating number of Jewish and LGBT people? Democratic officials have already began to speak against Dan Cathy, President of Chick-fil-A.
In July 2012, the Biblical Recorder, an online religious journal, interviewed Cathy where he stated “we are very much supportive of the family … the biblical definition of the family unit.”
To his company’s own detriment he continued on to claim that “we are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”
From that moment Chick-fil-A underwent intense scrutiny. On August 3, 2012 the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation proposed a “National Same-Sex Kiss Day” at every Chick-fil-A nationwide.
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino announced “Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population … we’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion.”
Mayor Rahm Emanuel in Chicago also told the media that “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values… they’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members.”
Edwin Lee, mayor of San Francisco, tweeted “Very disappointed #ChickFilA doesn’t share San Francisco’s values & strong commitment to equality for everyone.” The LGBT mecca refrains from any business with the anti-LGBT food chain.
Unfortunately, a survey by Sandelman & Associates discovered that consumer use rose about 2.2 percent and that their market share was also increased 0.6 percent.
“We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles,” Cathy informed.
“I appreciate the Cathy family’s public support for God’s definition of marriage,” defended Billy Graham, the most prominent and successful evangelist in American history.
