A Promotional Chick-Fil-A restaurant that was launched to test the waters across the pond has met with a severe backlash from an LGBTQ+ group, Reading Pride.
The UK’s first-ever opening of the retail chain restaurant, known for its friendly service and fried chicken among other things, was on a six month projected try-out. However, pushback from the pro-sodomy group has dampened the prospect of this venture succeeding.
In a statement Reading Pride stated, “we are staunchly opposed to @ChickfilA setting up shop in the UK at @OracleReading [a shopping mall] and certainly in #rdguk [Reading, UK]. The chain’s ethos and moral stance towards #LGBTQ people go completely against our values and that of the UK.”
In a statement to The Reading Chronicle, a Chick Fil-A Inc. spokesperson said: “We understand and appreciate that people will have questions about our company and want to be clear that Chick-fil-A is a restaurant company focused on food, service, and hospitality. We do not have a political or social agenda, and our brand is represented by more than 145,000 people from different backgrounds and beliefs.”
It is a shame that politics trumps decency in such matters. As believers fully are aware, God states in His Word that whatever you do, whether you eat or drink, you do so to the Glory of God. Perhaps, it is because Chick-Fil-A has made this possible and fostered that concept publicly in a harmonious environment, that the minority LGBTQ+ folks both here, and now in the UK, are dead set against.
