The willingness of Chick-Fil-A to help Pennsylvania Family Institute and its director Michael Geer, by providing lunch at a couple marriage enrichment events next month has landed both in the middle of a cultural battlefield, taking shots from the likes of the Huffington Post, numerous "gay" blogs, and even the notorious internet gossip columnist Perez Hilton, who wrote "Shame on you, Michael Geer" and called him "hateful" for taking a stand on marriage!
It has subjected PFI's staff to dozens if not hundreds of profanity-laced emails and blog posts. Crank calls, nasty emails, an online petition calling them "bigot" and "hate-filled," and calls for a boycott have all arisen out of this friendly partnership as they work together to build stronger marriages. It's amazing how intolerant these "promoters of tolerance" really are.
Winshape Foundation. I hope that you will reward them by taking your family out for breakfast, lunch or dinner if there's a restaurant near you.
Also, please consider a generous, tax-deductible gift to the Pennsylvania Family Institute, so that they can continue to take bold, winsome stands for family faith and freedom in the public square, and to have strong, healthy marriages and families.
