When asked point-blank by the Baptist Press during a recent interview if his company opposed same-sex marriage, Chick-fil-A President and COO Dan Cathy responded: "Guilty as charged."
Yesterday, Cathy doubled down on his remark, telling the Ken Coleman Show that supporting marriage equality was "inviting God's judgment on our nation."
He continued: "I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."
Chick-fil-A's financial support of anti-gay groups and propositions has long been known, but it's becoming harder and harder for supporters of gay rights to justify giving the company their business. Thankfully, they may no longer need to feel bad about getting their Chick-fil-A fix if they are willing to prepare it themselves.
Austin-based singer/actor/comedian/YouTube chef/Lisa Kudrow lookalike Hilah Johnson found herself facing the same dilemma, and decided to do something about it. "I love fried chicken sandwiches at Chick-fil-A," she says. "The problem is, I have a lot of gay friends and I love them too."
Using her YouTube culinary skills, Johnson has managed to come up with a workable solution: The "Even-Better-Than-Chick-fil-A's Fried Chicken Sandwich" AKA the "Chick-fil-Gay."
Finally: A fried chicken sandwich without the guilt. (You know, except for the part where they're not very healthy.)
