Chick-Fil-A Fast
Food Chain Donated Nearly $2 Million To Family Values Groups
. Want a side order
of solid Christian American values with your chicken sandwich? Chik-Fil-A might
be able to help you with that. According to
EqualityMatters.org, the fast food company donated nearly $2 million in 2009 to
groups that have laudible family values. IRS 990 forms
show that WinShape, the restaurant chain's charitable foundation which was
founded by Chick-Fil-A's chairman S. Truett Cathy in 1994, gave to the
following groups in 2009:





Marriage &
Family Legacy Fund: $994,199



Fellowship Of
Christian Athletes: $480,000



National
Christian Foundation: $240,000



Focus On The
Family: $12,500



Eagle Forum:
$5,000



Exodus
International: $1,000



Family Research
Council: $1,000















An earlier
investigation by Equality Matters found that Chick-Fil-A, which was recently
voted the third most beloved restaurant chain in the United States, donated
more than $1 million to family values groups between 2003 and 2008. The IRS
forms from 2009 are the most recent available as public records. In January
Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy defended the chain saying, "We're not
anti-anybody... Our mission is to create raving fans." Cathy also responded
to gay activists' claims after the company provided lunch at a
marriage-training event sponsored by Pennsylvania Family Institute. Cathy asserted,
"While my family and I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, we
love and respect anyone who disagrees." In recent months
students attending at least six universities, including University of North
Texas, Mississippi State University, and the University of New Orleans, have
launched petitions asking their schools not to support family value businesses
like Chick-Fil-A. LGBT activists
have also staged protests at a number of the chain's locations throughout the
country, including Chicago and Hollywood.





I for one applaud the stance of this franchise on supporting
family values, that which has aided in making this country great. What do you
think?

    We have a right to our opinion Pug just like you do! Please remember that! I have no great love for Gays but when you deny one group their rights then it make it easy to do the same to others! Word to the wise!

    Abhorrent behaviors and lifestyle choices do not garner rights. As American citizens, they absolutely have rights and those rights will not be impinged, nor have they. But in demanding rights for nothing more that forcing benefits for a lifestyle choice, that's a different story.

    I wish folks would go back and truly understand the meaning and then the proper usage of words like bigoted, opinion, etc. This IS NOT about whether you have a right to your opinion. I have not said anything against that and that is all I will say to address your shallow assessment of what I said. My issue is with his stating that Chick-Fil-A's stance is bigoted. It is not. No matter how much the left wants to make it seem that way, it isn't.

    This is nothing new. Chick-Fil-A has been owned by this family since its inception, and have always closed in observance of the Sabbath in our local mall. They are within their rights to do so, as well as to contribute to whatever charitable organizations they choose. The organizations listed do a lot of good work. These students and LGBT activists should be respectful of those they disagree with! They certainly do not have to patronize Chick-Fil-A, but to actively protest and circulate petitions asking their schools not to support "family value businesses" is really uncalled for. It really makes them look BAD, not to mention totally intolerant! Isn't that what they criticize Christians for?

    So you agree with prejudice? After all, you are using a few fanatics to justify your opinion of a much larger group. Maybe I should depict all gay males and lesbians by their most embarrassing examples.Thanks for showing why your side is the actual side of intolerance and hatred.

    Not that "I hate them", but I disagree with some organizations that they support. "Family Values" is hidden by "anti-gay" now. I'm Christian too, but I'd like a chance to marry the person I love. So, I will not be supporting them, sorry (:

    it's the other way around. family values are being projected as anti-gay and intolerant.
  • peaches America... 2012/06/22 02:13:45

    That's because they are working to prevent gay marriages from becoming legal rather than working to better families. That much is obvious.

    Their stance that gay marriage is not legitimate marriage is a component of maintaining the legitimate nature of marriage of man and woman as the true family. Supporting true family values and marriage is what they've been donating to.

    And that would indeed make them an anti-gay organization, would it not? And that is exactly what I'm against them supporting!

    Nope. It doesn't.
