For those of you who haven’t fulfilled your “Give me a break!” quota for the day and want to finish it off with an enormous eyeroll, this story is just for you! We’ve just come across a website put together by
entrepreneur, er… I mean gay marriage supporter, Ted Frank, who found a way to cash in on the Chick-Fil-A controversy. This website is meant for those who just can’t stand the thought of supporting a Christian-based company who believes in traditional marriage- but just can’t do without their chicken sandwiches and waffle fries- albeit filled with the hate that they are.
Hi! I’m Ted Frank and I love the chicken sandwiches at Chick-fil-A. But I also like my gay-married friends and don’t like the guilt of indirectly supporting Chick-fil-A’s stance on gay rights. And I know there are lots of other people in the same boat. So I’ve started ChickenOffset.com. Every time you buy a chicken-sandwich meal at Chick-fil-A, you can buy an “offset” here. You can print out the receipt and demonstrate to your friends that the money you gave for LGBT youth more than compensates for the profits you put in Chick-fil-A’s coffers. $1 gets you 1 chicken-meal offset; $6 for ten offsets. We promise to send at least 90% of the proceeds (and will almost certainly send more than that) after our minimal expenses to It Gets Better and the Williams Institute. 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. We promise to update this site with data about how much money has been donated.
