(Newser) – If you love the taste of Chick-fil-A but loathe the company president's recent statements against gay marriage, you may want to head over to ChickenOffset.com, a website that allows you to donate money to gay rights campaigns after you've wolfed down that spicy chicken sandwich.

Here is chicken for thought… if you and your ‘partner’ were not having sex, you’d be just considered good friends, no different from two people sharing a residence for financial reasons. So that being the case and the fact that your brand of sex cannot result in having children, can you please explain to me why it is that people should be granted special privileges,benefits and rights solely on the type of sex they are having?

This chick fil A thing is so annoying. I would have hoped Gay Rights would have had a more meaningful battleground than "KFC vs Chick-Fil-A" The owner is an ignorant old timer, though. Open your mind, guy. It's 2012.
