Comment on Chick-fil-A Copycat Chicken Sandwiches by Anne.

I will never deny how fabulous they taste-however, Chik-fil-A has been reported nationally for funding anti-gay marriage projects and politicians thru their WinShape Foundation –nearly 2 million bucks in 2010 (read the Huffington Post article http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/02/chick-fil-a-anti-gay-group-donations-_n_1 644609.html )
I’m a southerner raised on Chik-fil-A and while the taste is sublime, I won’t eat it because of their politics. I will also say that I was living outside Atlanta ten years ago near Decatur and if you ate inside there was a man who was walking the tables and ‘witnessing’ for Christ–happened every time my husband and I ate there and he was wearing an employee name badge.
I know you can’t reproduce the exact sandwich at home, but thank you for coming up with a very delicious looking copycat for those of us who don’t want to give money–however indirectly–to WinShape and its politics of intolerance
