Chick-fil-A Coupon: Trade Your Homosexuality for a Chicken Sandwich

Chick-fil-A Coupon: Trade Your Homosexuality for a Chicken Sandwich July 31, 2012

I thought for sure that there must be some good bits of humor out there related to Chick-fil-A (sorry, I meant “chicken restaurant that must not be named”), given the current controversies. But the web’s offerings were surprisingly few – barely an extra-small fries’ worth. But then I found the coupon below on a site called “Chick-fil-A Foundation”, which I think is actually from months ago, which seems like it is worth circulating now:

There is also another coupon on the site offering a free sandwich to traditional couples.

I think that satire is likely to be a more effective weapon in the controversy over Dan Cathy’s views and donations, and the broader social and cultural issue of gays and lesbians having the right to marry, than protests and boycotts.

And so where are the satirists? What are they working on, to bring painfully sharp witted insights to bear on this matter? Anyone come across any satirical treatments of this topic that are worth sharing? And what do others think? Is the struggle to change public opinion as well as legislation best waged through protests and boycotts, or satire, or some other means?
