Frederick Chick-Fil-A Restaurant Vandalized

View Comments

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Frederick police say vandals put stickers promoting marriage equality and a gay pride flag on the windows of a Chick-fil-A restaurant.

Police say the vandalism was reported Sunday morning. Several homemade signs were also left at the restaurant.

Cpl. Gregory Santangelo told The Frederick News-Post that the store hired a cleaner to remove the items.

Gay marriage supporters have been protesting comments by a company executive opposing same-sex unions. Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told a religious publication that the company backed “the biblical definition of a family.”

In California, a 30-year-old man was arrested last week after police say he scrawled “tastes like hate” on the side of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in a Los Angeles suburb.
