EXPOSED: Chick-Fil-A’s Anti-Gay Donations Exceed Over 1.1 MILLION Dollars And Counting

Equality Matters has done an in-depth investigation  into Chick-fil-A’s donations to anti-LGBT organizations, and  traces the money in an in-depth report:  And guess what?  It’s much more than the “few Chicken sandwiches” that were supposedly donated that owner Dan Cathy stated. To the tune of over 1 MILLION DOLLARS including donations to officially recognized Southern Law Poverty Center hate groups like the Family Research Center.

“When two Missouri organizations, the Clayton Chamber of Commerce and FOCUS St. Louis, decided earlier this month to cancel a presentation by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy over his company’s controversial affiliations, they made the right decision. Although Cathy has unequivocally denied being anti-LGBT and claimed that he and the company have ‘no agenda against anyone’ and ‘will not champion any political agendas on marriage and family,’ Equality Matters research proves just the opposite. In fact, the company has strong, deep ties to anti-gay organizations like Focus on the Family and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and its charitable division has provided more than $1.1 million to organizations that deliver anti-LGBT messages and promote egregious practices like reparative therapy that seek to ‘free’ people of being gay.

Chick-Fil-A’s employment practices have also been exposed as hostile to “Sinful” candidates. Chick-fil-A requires potential franchise operators to disclose their marital status, number of dependents, and involvement in social, church, and other organizations. Employees may be fired for engaging in “sinful” behavior, and Truett Cathy has said he aims to hire only workers who are married.

Would you like a side of hate with that? 

Oh so very Christian of them.
