Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Seems a small apology is in order.

Thursday, as you know, I…uh…had a little disagreement with a company called Chick-Fil-A.

KORRIOTH:&#160 “Little”?

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 Yeah, and the Titanic only had a small problem with an ice cube.

MERLIN:&#160 Sire, you never&#160 do anything “little”.

OZY McCOOL:&#160 I thought Titanic&#160 was destroyed by an energy ribbon…?

[Korrioth smacks McCool upside the head, Gibbs-style.]

Naturally, the staff chimed in with an advisory that maybe, just maybe I should invoke the time-honored “48-hour rule” – let something sit for 48 hours before diving in with a rant.

And, as it turns out, they were right, and I was…was…wr…wr…w…

RAYEGUN:&#160 C’mon, you can say it.

VICAR:&#160 Really not that hard if you put your mind to it.

VENOMOUS:&#160 …wr…wr…

THE SPATULAGODDESS:&#160 Now, now, hon, you can do it, really.

…wr….wr………wr-not entirely accurate.

ALL:&#160 (groan)


Anyway, as I found a couple days ago…and what Denizen & fellow blogger Alan K. Henderson later reiterated to me…Chick-Fil-A did not, in fact, cave in:

Contrary to reports first made by the gay-activist group The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) on Tuesday and later picked up by mainstream media outlets, Chick-fil-A and its charitable-giving arm, the WinShape Foundation, did not agree to stop making donations to groups that support the biblical definition of marriage in exchange for being allowed to open a franchise in Chicago.

“For many months now, Chick-fil-A’s corporate giving has been mischaracterized,” executives said in today’s statement. “And while our sincere intent has been to remain out of this political and social debate, events from Chicago this week have once again resulted in questions around our giving. For that reason, we want to provide some context and clarity around who we are, what we believe and our priorities in relation to corporate giving.

“A part of our corporate commitment is to be responsible stewards of all that God has entrusted to us. Because of this commitment, Chick-fil-A’s giving heritage is focused on programs that educate youth, strengthen families and enrich marriages, and support communities. We will continue to focus our giving in those areas. Our intent is not to support political or social agendas.

And this is where the “not entirely correct” aspect kicks in.&#160 Chick-Fil-A has, in fact, given $$$$ to Focus on the Family&#160 in the past.&#160 Before I completely exonerate then, at least, I want to see them give to FotF again.&#160 And I want to see the heterophobic community squeam (squeal/scream), screech & throw a temper tantrum over it.

For now, the boycott is lifted.&#160 And I offer an apology to Donnie Cathy and the Chick-Fil-A management staff.&#160 (And, if you’ll notice, the post in question has been scratched out.)

Provisionally so.&#160 The folks at Focus&#160 could probably use a few bucks…
