Re "Parent calls 'fowl' on Chick-fil-A partnership with Draper school" (Tribune, Sept. 11):

A local Chick-fil-A has partnered with Draper Elementary School to hold fundraisers. Some parents oppose the project because of the anti-gay views of and massive donations to anti-gay hate groups by Chick-fil-A's owners and top executives — all from sales revenues.

These groups don't just oppose gay marriage. They slander lesbians and gay, bisexual and transgender persons on a regular basis and fight against rights for LGBT people.

Draper Elementary School principal Kenna Sorensen must have known about the recent controversy over Chick-fil-A before she entered into this partnership. It's a slap in the face to LGBT people, their committed and loving relationships, their families and to their rights.

In a just world, Sorensen would be fired.
