|[Video] How to make a Chick-fil-Gay sandwich and not support anti-gay hate|

The anti-gay attitudes of the hierarchy of southern favorite Atlanta-based fast-food chain Chick-fil-A has been well documented for months now. The company continually donates to organizations that oppose same-sex marriage and president Dan Cathy said this week his company is "guilty as charged" in its opposition to marriage equality.
"We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives," Cathy told the Baptist Press.
The acknowledgment of the company's outright discrimination is causing a bit of a social media storm as well.
There was a local protest of Chick-fil-A's Leadercast conference in Atlanta in 2011 that pointed out the fast-food restaurant's anti-gay donations to organization such as the Family Research Council, the Alliance Defense Fund (recently renamed to the Alliance Defending Freedom) and Serving Marriages Inc.
And Equality Matters reported earlier this month Chick-fil-A donated some $2 million to anti-gay groups in 2011 through its Winshape Foundation, the restaurant's charitable organizations.
So if hate causes you heartburn and you still crave a tasty fried chicken sandwich with a pickle, check out this video from Hilah Cooking. No MSG included and you can have two slices of dill pickles, too.
