As pressure mounts on the fast food chain Chick-Fil-A over its public opposition to same sex marriage rights, the conservative Heritage Foundation tells TPM it plans to keep serving free Chick-Fil-A meals at its regular Bloggers Briefing, an event that brings together journalists, Republican lawmakers and conservative thinkers on a weekly basis, as well as other occasions.
"Heritage is proud to serve Chick-fil-A at The Bloggers Briefing and other events," Robert Bluey, media and public policy director at Heritage, told TPM. "We also support the right of individuals to speak publicly about their views on traditional marriage without facing political reprisal."
Heritage will be hosting an event about same sex marriage and the election next week. Bluey did not say if Chick-Fil-A will be served.
