Chicago—Picketers gathered in front of the only Chick-fil-A in Chicago to protest the company CEO using his chicken joint as a bullhorn to attack marriage and other civil rights for Gays. We were outnumbered by the customers who had streamed in for Chick-fil-A “Customer Appreciation Day,” an anti-Gay campaign concocted by avowedly Christian groups and Fox News. Some customers actually changed their minds after talking to picketers.

The restaurant is at Loyola University Law School. One young woman law student let us know that she and fellow students in the campus chapter of the National Lawyers Guild had protested leasing to Chick-fil-A even before it moved in. Loyola is a private Jesuit university and was not compelled to rent to this franchisee with a national reputation as a supporter of anti-Gay causes.
