Before the homosexual lobby picked a fight with the Chick-fil-A restaurant chain, its activists should have done their homework on both the company and its founder.
Restaurant owner supports traditional marriage. What a shock. His wife might have taken exception if he had supported polygamy, and as every girl knows, a marriage is something that is made in Heaven, not in a public restroom.
The Chick-fil-A restaurant chain was founded in 1946 by Samuel Truett Cathy, who at a sprightly 91 is the same age as the Duke of Edinburgh, and at the moment apparently in better health. As Mr Cathy is a billionaire and has made his money selling food - except on Sundays - he must have been doing something right. Something moral as well. In 1984, he set up the WinShape Foundation to invest in the young. WinShape has several branches, including an international one. Take a gander at their Rwanda Business Project; you've heard of Rwanda? This is the country where less than 20 years ago people were being hacked to death with machettes by their neighbours. Nothing like that ever happened to homosexuals in the United States, even at the height of the AIDS epidemic.
Below is S. Truett Cathy receiving a lifetime award from the President of the United States for service to his fellow man. If the homosexual lobby wants to pick a fight, there are plenty of people out there who will give them one. Let them hold their next kiss-in outside the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Riyadh, Saudia Arabia. Then they'll find out what homophobia really means.
