    Good grief. Can you spell "journalistic malpractice," Ashley? Recall the boycott and not the much larger backlash of support?!? Thanks for the misinformation.

    In your efforts to create a story in 1,000 words or less, you’ve conveyed inaccuracy to your readers. It’s not so much that the Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy publicly announced that his corporate mission is to uphold traditional family values including the standard heterosexual marriage that caused such a major stir but, rather, the discovery that the fundraising arm of his corporation was donating significant amounts of money to organizations whose focus was to implement drastic means to spread misinformation and hatred toward gays, lesbians and transsexuals, one specific religious initiative which was ultimately responsible for contributing to the national legislation in Uganda to imprison and punish LGBT people with death.
