The WinShape Foundation, Chick-fil-A’s charitable arm created by Chick-fil-A founder and chairman S. Truett Cathy (who constantly denies supporting anti-gay hate groups.) donated over $1.9 million in 2010 to anti-gay causes, more than any other year for which public records are available fopr the company.
WinShape Foundation donations include monies to The Family Research Council a designated anti-gay hate group by the Southern Law Poverty Center, Exodus International a major promoter of “ex-gay” therapy, and the The National Christian Foundation (NCF) is a grant-making foundation that has made “hundreds of grants” to anti-gay groups like Focus on the Family.
Chick-fil-A president and COO Dan Cathy has in the past released a statement denying that Chick-fil-A’s history of donations to anti-gay groups proved the company was “anti-gay.” Cathy argued that Chick-fil-A has “no agenda against anyone,” and that the company would not “champion any political agendas” relating to marriages or families but would nonetheless “continue to offer resources to strengthen marriages and families.”
It’s time to CHOKE the Chick-fil-A once again.
