Here’s How Chick-fil-A Responded to the Orlando LGBT Shooting

By: Jon Corrigan

Besides its delicious chicken, Chick-fil-A is known for two things: being closed on Sundays and opposing same-sex marriage.

In fact, every location has been closed on Sunday since the restaurant first opened in 1946.

However, this past Sunday in Orlando, following the tragic shooting at a local LGBT nightclub, Chick-fil-A set aside that policy.

At least two Chick-fil-A restaurants in Orlando opened, not to serve the public, but to make and donate food to the community.

Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy had previously spoke out against gay marriage, tweeting, “Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed of our gen. to abandon wisdom of the ages re: cornerstone of strong societies,” after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act.

He later deleted the tweet.
