Chick-Fil-A Ad Proclaims 'Only A Fruitcake Wouldn't Love Our Party Trays'

We don't want to make too many assumptions based on Chick-fil-A's notorious anti-gay history, but does anyone else find this advertisement for the restaurant chain -- which proclaims, "Only a fruitcake wouldn't love our party trays!" -- a little suspect?

Update at 6:03pm ET on October 16: Chick-fil-A offered the following statement to the Advocate today: "This is an advertisement that a locally owned and operated restaurant has been using for the past five years to promote Chick-fil-A's catering options during the holidays. It was simply a play on words referring to the traditional holiday food, and the restaurant had no intention of offending anyone whatsoever. We regret the flyer may haven been taken out of context."
