I’m afraid I have some disappointing news, Chick-fil-A fans – anti-poultry bigotry is still alive and well as we prepare to ring in the new year.



The latest incident comes from the pages of Outsports, a website that documents significant moments in the world of athletics, like:

Outsports writer Cyd Zeigler is fuming over Chick-fil-A’s sponsorship of the Peach Bowl, calling it a “big ‘f-you’ to LGBTQ people.”

“Chick-fil-A’s sponsorship presence at this game precludes me from watching one second of this game. And that’s a shame. Sports should bring us together, not divide us,” he wrote.

Zeigler’s feathers got ruffled over Chick-fil-A’s financial donations to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a well-respected organization that ministers to young people around the nation.




Like most Christian ministries, FCA follows the teachings of the Holy Bible and they expect their leaders to follow those beliefs. And that includes the Bible’s teachings on marriage.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes believes that marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman.

“Fellowship of Christian Athletes is an anti-gay organization,” Zeigler declared.

So anyone or any religious organization that believes marriage is between a man and a woman is anti-gay? Is that what Zeigler wants us to believe? Outrageous.

If I was in charge of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes I would instruct my attorneys to demand a full retraction and apology from Outsports and SBNation. It’s time for people of faith to stand up to these unhinged bullies.




Meanwhile, Zeigler says he plans on boycotting the Peach Bowl.

“Until Chick-fil-A abandons its financial support of anti-LGBTQ groups like Fellow of Christian Athletes, and instead state the Foundation’s support of equality, I simply will not watch that bowl game. It’s a shame that the Peach Bowl, and the powers in college football who have elevated the profile of the anti-LGBTQ bowl game, would subject an entire community to this prejudice,” he wrote.

Yawn.

One more time, folks. Chick-fil-A is in the business of selling chicken, not hate. And they are more than happy to serve anyone who comes into their restaurants, straight or gay. It would be their pleasure.
