Eat more Chicken — at Chick-Fil-A

See BuyCOTT Chick-Fil-A.  That’s buycott, not boycott.

What is a buycott?

It is collectively showing appreciation for a company by purchasing their products or services – the opposite of a boycott.

Why buycott Chik-Fil-A?

You probably didn’t hear about this on the evening news or read about it in the newspaper, but after a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Pennsylvania donated some sandwiches and brownies to a marriage seminar hosted by the Pennsylvania Family Institute, pro-homosexual activists went ballistic. According to syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin:
  • Several left-wing activist blogs launched an all-out attack on Chick-fil-A.
  • Some started calling the company’s main product “Jesus Chicken.”
  • They mocked and belittled the company’s “Not Open on Sunday” policy.
  • They smeared company employees, calling them “anti-gay.”
  • One individual – Michael Jones – started an online petition campaign “demanding” that Chick-fil-A renounce “extreme anti-gay groups.”
  • Users of Facebook organized witch hunts on college campuses.
  • In a feature article that ran in the New York Times’ Sunday A-section, reporter Kim Severson attacked Chick-fil-A saying it is “anti-gay.”

All that because one Chick-fil-A franchise donated a few sandwiches to a seminar aimed at helping couples strengthen their marriages. That reaction certainly seems like making a mountain out of a mole hill. You get the sense that there’s more to this attack on Chick-fil-A than meets the eye. And you’re right. There is. Chick-fil-A operates on Biblical principles and that irritates secularists.

  • For Example:
  • Chick-fil-A plays Christian music in its restaurants … exclusively.
  • Chick-fil-A closes all its locations on Sunday … no exceptions.
  • Chick-fil-A’s stated corporate purpose is: 1) To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us; and 2) To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chickfil-A.
