Righteous indigestion

I have been boycotting Chick-fil-A for a long time. I am deeply offended by their stance on giving me heartburn. While they are ardently pro-indigestion, while I believe in my inherent right to eat foods that don't make me feel like there is a fireball lodged in my throat. 
Also, the way they spell their name is stupid. I am vehemently opposed to horrible spelling.
Super-cool word fact of the day: chicken is the descendant of an onomatopoeia. The Online Etymology Dictionary tells me that the word's root, the West Germanic keuk, is echoic of the noise a chicken makes. Keuk might also be an ancestor of cock. I would not have guessed that chicken and cock were that closely related.
How could Tina Fey betray us like this?

I, too, have always reacted strongly against the spelling of the company's name.
