Chick-Fil-A Fast Food Chain Donated Nearly $2 Million To Anti-Gay Groups
Want a side order of anti-gay rhetoric 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 anti-gay agendas.
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 anti-gay 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 was also forced to respond 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 anti-LGBT 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.

    Probably shouldn't support the fast food industry, anyway. Two birds with one stone!

    I would have chosen other as a correct answer.Most Americans will tell you that they are not "Anti-Gay" but,at the same time they would rather keep to themselves on the matter and that they wouldn't necessarily condone that kind of life style either. People's minds can gradually change I suppose.I'm sure Rush Limbaugh has changed his stance on the issue BC of his friendship with Sir Elton John who recently was married to his boyfriend.

    People...You need to know this!!! Chik-Fil-A is sponsoring a classroom program called "Core Essentials" that is being used by public schools to "saturate" children with values developed by the company. If students display certain traits they are rewarded with coupons for free food at Chik-Fil-A. Teachers are being required by administrators to do this!!They are trying to brainwash our children under the guise of sponsorship of local schools. Please get this info our there and stop it!! They are trying to push Mormon ideas in our local public schools!!!

    No, in fact I don't think we have any of those in Massachusetts, I've never seen a Chick-Fil-A, but what a stupid PR move. It's going to hurt their bottom line in one way or another. Furthermore, I'd want proof to the claim before just believing it. Never heard of a few of them, like Eagle Forum, so who knows?
    Stupid if true.

    Is this the big negative in my life. Homos are all defenseless... Ha! Homos are a torture! I wonder if those two huge black males with the dreadlocks were homos. I believe my mother died a couple of years later maybe as a result of their knocking her down. I am afraid of homos.
    I have homosexual relatives. They are not as others. They believe and prefer their gay family to their biological family. It's not easy to have a homosexual relative. I'm not a regular at Chick-a-Fillet, but this news won't turn me off.

    I support their free speech rights. Some people who don't have an argument call that free speech hate. I guess that is what the children on the playground do when they grow up, but do not mature.

    Really ? I think discriminating a whole class of people and pretending it is the "Christian" thing to do is reason enough. Which group will these psychos decide to discriminate against yet ?

    This is the Uniform and Patch that identified gay people when the Nazis sent them to the camps during the holocaust because Hitler thought it was the "Christian" thing to do.

    Did you forget what he did to the Jews? He, like you, liked to take a whole group of people and demonize them. With you it is obviously Christians, and I suspect Jews.

    And by the way, not wanting to change the definition of marriage is not discrimination. If it is then there is no end to what we can call it.

    You pretty much don't have anything but the same old lines to offer. It is against my religion, it hurts children, and the practice of homosexuality has been a serious health issue. Those are 3 reasons off the top of my head why people should care.

    People who hate Christianity, Jews, and freedom disqualify them from serious conversation.

    Their chicken is great. I honestly don't care about their politics. They treat their employees well and are closed on Sunday so employees can be with their families on the traditional sabbath.

    You mean the traditional "Christian" sabbath. The Sabbath was a Jewish day of rest thousands of years before the Christians decided to change the day. You remember the 4th Commandment brought down the mountain by Moses ( A Jew ) don't you ?
    remember the sabbath
