Anyone else remember the Great Chick-fil-A War of 2012? Most of the action took place in August that year: we’re not going to bother linking to the posts, but Twitchy covered boycotts, bomb threats, kiss-ins, vandalism, celebrity hot-takes, a lot of Sarah Palin, and a shooting at the Family Research Council by a man who was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in a bag. Looking back at our archives, that was just the first two weeks of August.
Who wants to relive it all? HuffPost, that’s who.

If you care about queer people ― or you yourself are queer ― you have absolutely no business eating at Chick-fil-A. Ever.
It’s really that straightforward.https://t.co/Y5tvFezX8H

It really isn’t that straightforward. But let’s just cut to the chase: if you want to eat at Chick-fil-A, eat at Chick-fil-A.
They don't discriminate against LGBT employees.

I'll be the member of the LGBT community that doesn't go batshit crazy over a chicken sandwich. It's ok to eat Chick-fil-a. https://t.co/O5AkpJD6ZJ

OK, this is the dumbest headline written in English for a mainstream American news source in 2018.

There's literally no proof, this "article" doesn't give any evidence. Just because an organization is Christian, and said beliefs are based around heterosexuality, doesn't make it anti-LGBT. What happened to accepting all people no matter thier beliefs and sexual preference? https://t.co/wxVPvLPsZr
