200 meals for free turned down….
Check it out:
A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage.
Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.”
The local Chick-fil-A had offered to donate 200 meals for free, having already given $21,000 to the booster club. However, because the deceased owner of the restaurant chain, S. Truett Cathy, was well-known for being a religious Christian, and his son, current president, Dan T. Cathy, is known for his anti-gay marriage stance, the school rendered this decision.
