reflections on a poultrycidal maniac

I haven't kept up much with the Chick-fil-A gay marriage kerfluffle. However, what little I know shows the fast-food outlet to be a cultish piece of bigoted work, and its founder and CEO a one-man hate fest, in addition to his pepetrating mass murder most fowl.

Chick-fil-A...has been sued at least 12 times since 1988 on charges of employment discrimination, according to records in U.S. District Courts. Aziz Latif, a former Chick-fil-A restaurant manager in Houston, sued the company in 2002 after Latif, a Muslim, says he was fired a day after he didn't participate in a group prayer to Jesus Christ at a company training program in 2000. The suit was settled on undisclosed terms.

See "The Cult of Chick-fil-A" at Forbes (!!) magazine's on-line site, 3rd paragraph from the bottom.

As a side note, I just love using sources like Forbes and the Wall Street Journal. They really hate bozos like Q. Throcklepidgeon Caty, or whatever his name is, who give capitalismo a bad name.
