[Ed. – ChickfFil-A would probably be happy to stay open past the 6-month “trial” lease, but the shopping center the restaurant is leased in wants them out. And the attitude of authorities is all on the side of “operate at your own risk, if you don’t embrace radical-intolerance themes.” America is perilously close to the same tipping point.]
Just a little over a week after Chick-fil-A opened its first location in the United Kingdom, the restaurant will be closing because the shopping center will not extend the restaurant’s six-month lease in response to the protests of LGBTQ activists.
“Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October,” reports the BBC.
A spokesperson for The Oracle shopping center told the BBC that “the right thing to do” was to prevent the fast-food chain from doing business in response to the LGBTQ outcry.
