Have You Stopped Eating Chick-fil-A? Then Stop Drinking Jack Daniels

Among the food and beverage companies who clearly HATE THE GAYS because they don’t do everything in their power to NOT HATE THE GAYS is Brown-Forman Corp. — distributor of such brands as Jack Daniels, Southern Comfort, Finlandia Vodkas, Herradura Tequila, Sonoma-Cutrer Wines, Korbel Champagne — which doesn’t provide employees with same-sex partner benefits. There are more like this. Yes, there’s a bit of a difference between being branded “anti-gay” because of something you don’t do (provide health care benefits) and what you do do (donate free services to anti-gay groups), but who said throwing your cash away on fast food and booze was easy? (NB: Apparently Chili’s is one place that deserves your cash, if Peter Labarbera says you don’t.)
