Group Axes Chick-Fil-A President Appearance Over Gay Rights…

A St. Louis area business group has canceled a planned appearance by Dan Cathy, president of Chick-Fil-A, over the restaurant chain’s recent support for an anti-gay marriage group.

The Clayton Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday their decision to rescind their invitation.

“We are a pro-diversity culture here and certainly don’t want to offend anyone,” Ellen Gale, the head of the chamber, told, the website of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “We didn’t know anything about this when he was booked.”

Gale was referring to the chicken restaurant’s sponsorship of a marriage seminar closely associated with the anti-gay marriage group Pennsylvania Family Institute. deets here
