THE US fast food chain, Chick-fil-A , has learned to its cost that a great many Americans have no stomach for its for its anti-gay bigotry.
According to this report, the Atlanta-based chain’s brand approval ratings have plummeted in the wake of Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s homophobic remarks earlier this month.
The company is operated on “Christian principles”, and has spent millions supporting right-wing anti-gay marriage outfits.
The company’s overall consumer brand health among fast food eaters has dropped to its lowest levels since mid-August 2010 in the wake of the media firestorm.
Just before Cathy’s interview was published, Chick-fil-A’s Index score was 65, well above the Top National Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) Sector average score of 46. Just four days later, however, Chick-fil-A’s score had fallen to 47, while last week, the chain had a score of 39, compared to the Top National QSR Sector average score of 43.
Aaron Fruh blames gay marriage for the Great Flood
Nonetheless, there are lunatics out there who fully support the company. One is Aaron Fruh, a pastor at Knollwood Church in Mobile, Alabama, who applauded C-f-A and claimed that the Great Flood was God’s response to same-sex marriage.
Fruh, on American Family Radio, challenged listeners to:
Find any society in human history that ever tried that experiment [of same-sex marriage] and lived to tell about it … they’ve all been destroyed.
Identifying a “society just prior to the flood of Noah” as the only one prior to the present to offer same-sex marriage – Greece – Fruh went on to note:
God knew that the people on the earth were going to destroy themselves through same-sex marriage, and so that’s why he brought the flood.
As Dan Cathy said, we’re shaking our fist in the face of God.
