The refrain from Britain’s most famous patriotic anthem, Rule Britannia, “Britons never, never, never shall be slaves,” apparently requires an asterisk to note that the former proud empire is now enslaved to LGBT ideology.
After opening its first UK location earlier this month, Chick-fil-A will soon have to close after the owner of the leased space decided to cave to pressure from disgruntled LGBT protesters.
As soon as the restaurant opened, gay rights activists called for a boycott of the Chick-fil-A in The Oracle shopping center in Reading, England.
“GET THE CHICK OUT,” tweeted UK Pride Network.
Local LGBT activist group Reading Pride told the BBC that three Christian-based charitable organizations that the Chick-fil-A Foundation has donated to — the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Paul Anderson Youth Home, and the US Salvation Army — are “hostile to LGBT rights.”
A spokeswoman for the Oracle center said: “We always look to introduce new concepts for our customers, however, we have decided on this occasion that the right thing to do is to only allow Chick-Fil-A to trade with us for the initial six-month pilot period, and not to extend the lease any further.”
