19. For 30+ years Winshape Foundation has been helping children

Dain, you may remember I do have a record on D.U. as part of the LGBT community.

I think Don Cathy isn't P.R. savvy. He should publicly keep his opinions to himself on controversial issues.

I grew up in GA. My family was acquainted with Truitt Cathy back when he stared the 'Dwarf House'. He is an admirable human being.

Chick Fil-A's 'Winshape Foundation has helped hundreds of at risk young people by assisting foster families, giving kids camp experiences, mentoring a scholarships.

The Chik-Fil-A company treats their employees better than any fast food competitor. Fair wages, reasonable hours, Sundays off , for a start.

I believe the owners of Chik Fil A are free to believe whatever they want because Constitutional freedom of religion and freedom of expression. They are free to contribute to Focus on the family or whichever groups they choose. I know when my lil family had evacuated to ATL from NOLA, the gay African American manager of the Chik Fil A nearest where we were staying gave us a handful of cards for meals. That manager is still with Chick Fil A. He seems a pretty happy man.

However, people are certainly entitled to boycott anyplace they want. I think the media is trying to stir up trouble, as usual.
