Keep Eating Chick-fil-A, Says DC Lawyer, and Give to GLBT Causes When You Do

Center for Class Action Fairness founder Ted Frank supports same-sex marriage. Yet the Washington, D.C., lawyer and blogger also loves Chick-fil-A sandwiches. Rather than boycotting the deep-fried, 430-calorie item in light of company president Dan Cathy’s opposition to gay marriage, Frank devised a plan.
Donating $1, Frank’s blog says, amounts to one "chicken-meal offset"; $6 will buy 10 offsets.
It Gets Better and the Williams Institute will receive at least 90 percent of the proceeds from Chicken Offsets, according to Frank.
“We promise your offsets will provide far more money to non-profits that support gays than buying a sandwich at Chick-fil-A ends up putting in the pockets of anti-gay rights organizations,” he writes.
