A group of irate Christian extremists have launched a Change.org petitiondemanding an explanation from Chick-fil-A as to why the fast food chain is sponsoring Level Ground (which they mistakenly refer to as “On Level Ground”), an organization that hosts a yearly LGBTQ Christian film festival.
“Per our research and findings, Chick-fil-A is a sponsor of ‘On Level Ground’ (www.OnLevelGround.org) which is ‘a movement’ that ‘creates space for dialogue about faith, gender, and sexuality through the arts,’” the petition reads.
The petition goes on to attack Level Ground’s other sponsors, who petitioners feel “promote an agenda which is contrary to Chick-fil-A‘s corporate stance on Christian values regarding marriage and stewardship.”
“In light of these findings, we ask that Chick-fil-A issues an official response regarding this sponsorship,” the petition demands.
The petition has roughly 650 signatures and counting, with more than 100 new ones collected over the weekend, which is strage, considering Chick-fil-A issued its response three days ago.
In an email to the websiteEatersent last Friday, the company explained that it’s not sponsoring any LGBTQ Christian film festivals. The sponsorship is from a single franchise owner in Nashville.
“The operators make decisions on local sponsorships,” Chick-fil-A toldEater.
