According to the story, this franchise owner is offering to provide CATERING to an event that will be held elsewhere, NOT AT HIS RESTAURANT.
And Mr. Cathy never said anything about not serving homosexuals in his restaurant, or elsewhere. THAT is the mistake made by too many in this whole kerfuffle. Mr. Cathy will gladly serve anyone who comes into his restaurants. Some folks think that Chick-Fil-A hates homosexuals and wants them all killed (THAT was a quote from some idiot in the comments section of a TV station that aired a story on one of the local Chick Fil A yesterday). This franchise owner will be dispelling that myth.
“This franchise owner will be dispelling that myth. “
I agree, let’s see how his plays out. The danger when playing with Alinskyites is that they can take advantage of anything. What if he caters the event, and 150 gays all call in sick because they claim they got salmonella? hat would make huge news since any cluster of salmonella makes the news. The the spin begins.
It says this CFA owner is going to help SPONSOR the gay pride event as well as cater. As far as I can tell, there was never an assumption the freak show would be held in the restaurant.
Of course, I wouldn't put it past the "senior director of Pride Fest" to lie about Mr. Piccola's sponsorship commitment. It's quite possible his only involvement was to serve food and the gay guy embellished a bit.
