NASHUA, NH (CBS) A Nashua Chick-Fil-A restaurant will be sponsoring New Hampshire Pride Fest.
Ryan Manseau, the senior director of Pride Fest, told WBZ-TV he was handing out fliers at the Pheasant Lane Mall recently to promote his event and noticed a man who appeared to be a Chick-Fil-A manager holding one.
Manseau said he approached the man, bracing for a verbal confrontation. He turned out to be the franchise operator, Anthony Piccola, who agreed to help sponsor the event and to serve Chick-Fil-A sandwiches there.

According to the story, this franchise owner is offering to provide CATERING to an event that will be held elsewhere, NOT AT HIS RESTAURANT.
And Mr. Cathy never said anything about not serving homosexuals in his restaurant, or elsewhere. THAT is the mistake made by too many in this whole kerfuffle. Mr. Cathy will gladly serve anyone who comes into his restaurants. Some folks think that Chick-Fil-A hates homosexuals and wants them all killed (THAT was a quote from some idiot in the comments section of a TV station that aired a story on one of the local Chick Fil A yesterday). This franchise owner will be dispelling that myth.
“This franchise owner will be dispelling that myth. “
I agree, let’s see how his plays out. The danger when playing with Alinskyites is that they can take advantage of anything. What if he caters the event, and 150 gays all call in sick because they claim they got salmonella? hat would make huge news since any cluster of salmonella makes the news. The the spin begins.
That kind of claim would be investigated, and easily refuted with science, and it being a huge story, can be shot down easily. Remember, THEY don’t own the news anymore, so if they tried that, when they fail, they WILL damage their own cause, and bring sympathy to the franchise owner, who WAS trying to do the right thing.
Optimistically, I hope you are correct. On the other hand many people believe in Global Warming.
When is the event he’s catering? We’ll see what actually happens soon.
You are right, the progs don’t have total control of the news anymore!
It says this CFA owner is going to help SPONSOR the gay pride event as well as cater. As far as I can tell, there was never an assumption the freak show would be held in the restaurant.
Of course, I wouldn't put it past the "senior director of Pride Fest" to lie about Mr. Piccola's sponsorship commitment. It's quite possible his only involvement was to serve food and the gay guy embellished a bit.
