Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy Banned From Speaking At St. Louis Chamber of Commerce Event Over Anti-Gay Beliefs

Anti-Gay Christomaniac Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A’s President has been dis-invited from a speaking engagementt scheduled for next week by FOCUS St. Louis, a nonprofit organization, and the Clayton, St. Louis Chamber of Commerce after being informed of his company’s anti-gay beliefs.

“It has come to our attention that our co-sponsorship of a presentation by Dan Cathy, the COO of Chick-fil-A, would be seen by some in the St. Louis community as inconsistent with our deep commitment to diversity and inclusion, and that his appearance could become a forum for issues other than the business leadership issues which Mr. Cathy intended to address. As a result, we believe that the original purpose of this forum cannot be fulfilled and that it is in the best interests of all concerned that we cancel this event.”

Cathy’s father the devout Christian and  founder of the company, Truett Cathy, celebrated his 90th birthday on Thursday. Performers for the party included Jeff Foxworthy who has the gayest mustache in show business and  is obviously more bigoted than a 5th Grader.

I wonder if Foxworthy modified his normal comedy routine from “You might be a redneck if…” to “You might be an anti-gay bigot if………. you’re here.”
