For Chick-fil-A, a Hard Lesson Is Coming

It is a truism that a blackmailer is rarely satisfied. Once the payoffs start, there often is no end to them.

The Chick-fil-A fast-food chain is about to learn this hard lesson, far too late, as many victims of blackmail and extortion generally do.

For conservatives and evangelical Christians, Chick-fil-A has been a model company that has consistently stood against the “anything goes” spirit of the age. It’s founder, the late S. Truett Cathy, ordered that his restaurants be closed on Sundays to allow employees to attend church and spend time with their families.

They came across as standing for what I believe is Godliness, morality, honesty and American values then turned into abortion supporting heathen lovers. Screw'em.

  3. I am with Kye on this. I don't do fast food and there is no Chick Fil A here where I live so it is easy for me to say, my bucket list no longer includes a meal from them.
