Love Chick-fil-A's sandwiches but hate the company president's stance against same-sex marriage?

D.C. lawyer and activist Ted Frank is now offering a way for chicken-lovers to have their sandwich and support gay rights, too, with chicken offsets. (Tag line: Eating Chicken Guilt-Free Since 2012.)

Here's how Frank describes the concept on the chicken offsets website:

Hi! I'm Ted Frank and I love the chicken sandwiches at Chick-fil-A. But I also like my gay-married friends and don't like the guilt of indirectly supporting Chick-fil-A's stance on gay rights. And I know there are lots of other people in the same boat. So I've started ChickenOffset.com. Every time you buy a chicken-sandwich meal at Chick-fil-A, you can buy an "offset" here. You can print out the receipt and demonstrate to your friends that the money you gave for LGBT youth more than compensates for the profits you put in Chick-fil-A's coffers. $1 gets you 1 chicken-meal offset; $6 for ten offsets. We promise to send a minimum of 80% of the proceeds after expenses to It Gets Better and the Williams Institute. Your offsets will provide far more money to non-profits that support gays than buying a sandwich at Chick-fil-A ends up putting in the pockets of anti-gay-rights organizations. We promise to update this site with data about how much money has been donated.

"I posted on Facebook that donating money to gay rights causes did a heck of a lot more good than depriving Christian groups of $0.0001 by boycotting Chick-fil-A," Frank tells The Huffington Post. "A friend joked 'Chicken offsets' in response, the domain name was open, and someone else would've come up with the idea if I didn't execute."

The chicken offsets site went up late Saturday night -- it's so new there aren't any questions yet in the FAQ section.

Frank says that no one has yet purchased an offset, "but Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays."

UPDATE, 4:15 p.m.: Frank tells us that as of Monday late afternoon, he's sold "about $100" in chicken offsets.

The website now has lots of questions and answers on the FAQ page, too, including a response to one concern that's come up a lot since the chicken offset site went live: "Shouldn't I just give money directly to charity instead of paying a middleman for an offset?"

Here's Frank's response:

Yes. The charity would get more money that way, though most would find that it costs more than $1 to process a $1 donation, so you should make sure you're giving them real money. But if you're lazy or don't want to give a material amount to charity, buy an offset from me or someone else selling offsets.
