The theocrats over at SPLC-designated hate group Family Research Council are saying a prayer for… wait for it… Chick-fil-A?
Really! Why? What happened?
Christians Deeply Troubled over Chick-fil-A Turn — The third largest fast food restaurant chain in America won the respect and loyalty of millions of Christians and non-Christians alike due to their unwavering devotion to the principles of its founder Truett Cathy, who passed away in 2014. But the Christian world was shocked when it learned that the stand-out Christian business had succumbed to years of pressure from LGBT activists and pulled its annual support for the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (both of whom hold to natural marriage in their guiding statements) in favor of groups like Covenant House, which hosted a local “Drag Queen Story Hour” for children.
Christians who have loved and wholeheartedly supported Chick-fil-A (CFA) because of their Christian principles have received the news with disappointment, disbelief, anger, and mourning, with some feeling wounded by a sense of betrayal. Still others, in Christian charity, have tried to give the company the benefit of the doubt.

And what’s the prayer?, you ask?
