Chick-fil-A is Still Giving Money to Anti-LGBT Organizations

Five years ago Chick-fil-A chairman and CEO Dan Cathy vowed to stay out of the LGBT debate and focus on chicken issuing a statement that the company will “treat every person with honor, dignity and respect-regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation and gender.”

Well it seems you can’t teach an old chicken new tricks.

While the company’s non-profit arms scaled back support for some of the groups that actively push an anti-gay agenda, the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s most recent IRS filings show it gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to anti-LGBT organizations in 2015.

Chick-fil-A Foundation gave more than $1 million in 2015 (nearly one-sixth of its total grants) to the the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The religious organization, which seeks to utilize athletes and coaches to spread Christian teachings, imparts a strongly anti-LGBT message. Staff and volunteers with the organization have been required to adhere to a strict “sexual purity” policy, prohibiting any “homosexual acts,” even for married couples. The group takes the view that, “The Bible is clear in teaching on sexual sin including sex outside of marriage and homosexual acts. Neither heterosexual sex outside of marriage nor any homosexual act constitute an alternative lifestyle acceptable to God.”

The foundation also gave more than $200,000 to the Paul Anderson Youth Home, a Georgia-based “transformative organization” that operates a “Christian residential home for troubled youth.” Focusing on boys, their teachings include the idea that the “sexual, physical, and mental abuse of children, mostly in the alleged ‘safety’ of their own homes has produced all kinds of evil throughout the culture to include the explosion of homosexuality in the last century.” The myth that people are LGBTQ due to abuse is a claim frequently made by anti-LGBTQ organizations to promote harmful “ex-gay” therapy.

Additionally, the Chick-fil-A Foundation gave at least $130,000 to the Salvation Army. The religious organization has a long history of anti-LGBT rhetoric including;  housing discriminationopposition to same-sex marriage equality, and supporting exemptions from non-discrimination ordinances.

  1. You would think Chick-fil-a and it’s Chairman,Dan Cathy would have learned from the errors made 5 years ago. Despite the spin back in 2012. Mr Cathy and their corporation try to hide behind the veil of being a privately held company. Using the Chick-fil-a Foundation to hide their homophobia. The mission statement of the foundation has never changed.” to further the beliefs of the company founder Truet Cathy. Cathy’s WinShape Foundation, founded in 1984, grew from his desire to “shape winners” by helping young people succeed in life through scholarships and other youth-support programs. The non-profit organization funds 13 foster homes, marriage counseling, a wilderness program, retreat getaways and youth camps. All with Mr Cathy’s perverted view of christian values.

    Things never change

    Note to Mr Cathy: Time to get a better accountant and PR firm

  2. They are just another member of the Hater’s for Christ club. The cool thing about these idiots my God will take care of them in do time. Yikes. Boom.

  3. “Chick-fil-A Foundation gave more than $1 million in 2015 (nearly one-sixth of its total grants) to the the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The religious organization, which seeks to utilize athletes and coaches to spread Christian teachings”

    The FCA teaches the beliefs of the Holy Bible.

    Is the LGBT community anti God and the Bible?

    “The foundation also gave more than $200,000 to the Paul Anderson Youth Home, a Georgia-based “transformative organization” that operates a “Christian residential home for troubled youth.”

    The Paul Anderson Youth Home exists to offer the grace of Jesus Christ
    to hurting young men and their families by planting God’s Word in their
    lives and discipling them in a relationship with Him.

    Is the LGBT community anti grace and do they not care about young men because they make the choice to follow Christ and not the LGBT agenda?

    “Additionally, the Chick-fil-A Foundation gave at least $130,000 to the Salvation Army.”

    The Salvation Armies slogan is “Doing The Most Good.” In these four words, our mission – to feed, to clothe, to comfort, to care. To rebuild broken homes and broken lives. By walking with the addicted, we can lead them to recovery. In fighting hunger and poverty, we can feed and nurture the spirit. And, in living and sharing the Christian Gospel by meeting tangible needs, we give the world a lasting display of the love behind our beliefs.”

    Is the LGBT community anti good? Are they against feeding the hungry, clothing the needy? helping the addicted? Is it because the name has the word “salvation” in it which is a general term with being set free in Christ?

    Is the LGBT Anti Christ?

    1. The Salvation Army feeds, clothes and shelters anyone but homosexuals and that is not kind or Christian from what I hear.

    2. Mathew 6 1-4
      Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

      2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

      I think what the LGBT community objects to is promoting their charitable giving with it ‘s hooks. These charities are no better than the Madrasas in Iran or Iraq promoting the death of American’s as the word of Islam. Christ promoted brotherly love.

  4. It actually helps the gay cause by eating there more than hurting. Cause Chick Fil A buys all products from companies that support the gay cause.. Microsoft, Coca-Cola…. so go eat at Chick Fil A if you choose cause they’re only wasting their hard earned money on a cause that’s going to back fire in their faces.

  5. Oh, goodness, no. Don’t eat at Chik fil A — such a hateful place. Muslims throw queers off of buildings in Muslim countries. Just FYI.
