Face, Meet Palm: Liberals Outraged NCAA Would Allow Chick-Fil-A To Sponsor Bowl Game…
Via Daily Beast:
Tuesday is the Chick-fil-A Bowl, which in 2014 will be part of the new college football playoff system. But how can the NCAA keep partnering with an anti-gay marriage poster child?
The NCAA is facing a momentous decision in 2014: Will it stop partnering with Chick-fil-A—or revise its bylaws so it can support discrimination against gay Americans?
The choice won’t be easy. The NCAA has a long history of doing business with Chick-fil-A. Tuesday night is the 16th annual Chick fil-A Bowl, which the NCAA’s selection committee earlier this year named “one of an elite group of six bowl games to host the new College Football Playoff” system that kicks off in 2014.
But let’s be brutally honest. Chick-fil-A is the corporate poster child for opposition to same-sex marriage. And it appears to have chosen that position deliberately. Not only has Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said his company supports “the biblical definition of the family unit,” but the company’s charitable arm also has donated millions to anti-LGBT organizations.
