"While we find his beliefs and actions to be deeply damaging, PFLAG National supports Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy's right to freely express those beliefs, religious or otherwise. And no matter how destructive the action, or how much we disagree with it, we support his right to funnel profits from his company into that company's charitable arm (WinShape) which subsequently donates dollars - over five million of them and counting - to groups that openly work to deny basic rights to our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) loved ones.

But let's be clear: It is also the right of millions of LGBT people and their families, friends, and allies to use this same right to free speech to protest that position, and to educate the public as to just where the revenue from Mr. Cathy's business is going."

-- Press release from PFLAG over the Chi-fil-A controversy.
