I was concerned upon reading your article “Chick-fil-A plans ruffle Feathers” in the Wednesday, June 5, edition of the Daily Journal. Many submissions to your letters page followed, but I am not sure the truth has really been told. If this were simply another example of a politician pandering to a well-heeled special interest group or just another person with a sinecure who doesn’t have enough to do, then that would just be politics as usual, right?

I suspect that Mr. Canepa’s antipathy to Chick-fil-A is because it operates on a specifically Christian business model. It is noted in your article that Chick-fil-A is not open on Sundays. If the CEO of Chick-fil-A does not approve of same-sex marriage, it might be because he has actually read the Bible and takes it seriously. Wow. But none of this should surprise us. What did Jesus say to his disciples, the night before His death? “If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you.” John 15:18. Who’s the hater now?

Clayton, could you please connect the dots? Closed on Sundays, run by Christians, no restrictions on who is served when open but the owners are haters? You lost me.
