What exactly is a BUYcott, you ask?
It is collectively showing appreciation for a company by purchasing their products or services – the opposite of a boycott.The AFA isn't buying that those boycotting Chick-Fil-A are not keen on supporting a restaurant with ties to bigoted anti-gay groups. In fact, there is a "culture war going on here in America," according to AFA president Tim Wildmon. "There are people who want to change our country for the worse."
You get the sense that there's more to this attack on Chick-fil-A than meets the eye. And you're right. There is. Chick-fil-A operates on Biblical principles and that irritates secularists.
- Chick-fil-A plays Christian music in its restaurants ... exclusively.
- Chick-fil-A closes all its locations on Sunday ... no exceptions.
*Sigh* You're on to us, Tim. We're pissed that they give their employees a day off on Sundays. We despise the good service, clean facilities, and that damned Christian music that I've never noticed once in my entire life of patronizing Chick-Fil-A.
- Chick-fil-A's stated corporate purpose is: 1) To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us; and 2) To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chickfil-A.
It's about the hate, Tim. Chick-Fil-A has deep ties to anti-gay organizations like Focus on the Family and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Its charitable division, The WinShape Foundation has provided more than $1.1 million to groups that deliver anti-LGBT messages and promote unsound and demeaning practices like reparative therapy that seeks to "cure" homosexuals.
