Chick-fil-A has been hated by liberals for years now, dating back to when it was reported that they had co-sponsored a pro-traditional marriage conference with the Pennsylvania Family Institute in 2011. That, and CEO Dan Cathy’s confirmation that he opposed same sex marriage caused liberals to blast the company “homophobic” and launch a boycott that backfired spectacularly.
Opposing gay marriage isn’t the same as hating gays like many of the company’s liberal critics would like to have you believe – and they’re going to be at a loss of words to explain their response to the Orlando shooting.
Although it is not known how many, various franchises near Orlando stayed open on Sunday — when the restaurant chain normally shutters its doors — to provide food and aid to people in need, many of whom were waiting in line to donate blood or enforcing the law, according to FOX 5.
One location at University Blvd. lowered the American flag to half-staff and displayed the message “Pray for Orlando. God Bless the USA.”
The location at C470 and Kipling followed suit.
“Today we fly our flag at half-staff as a mark of respect for the victims of the act of hatred and terror perpetrated yesterday in Orlando, Florida. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families during this heartbreaking time! #PrayforOrlando,” this franchise posted on Facebook.
More than a few people thanked Chick-fil-A on social media.
A few posts really stood out.
