Chick-Fil-A’s Rotten Egg- They Gave over $1MM to Anti-Gay Causes
So basically this so-called Christian based company gives money to known intolerant groups and reparative therapy groups, but as self-proclaimed Christians with ‘Traditional Values’ they tend to lie and misrepresent their financial commitments to such groups. Another shining example of bigots hiding behind Jesus….
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.
