I’ll watch for the OPEN SUNDAY signs tomorrow. Meanwhile, Corporate America, Inc. will be donating gazillions to fund gay marriage, Pride parades, and public sodomy. Take the kids!

That’s really deflating. Sickening! I hope those who live near one of them will boycott.

“Mr. Martinez said Chick-fil-A told the alderman they will no longer fund groups that support traditional marriage through their charity arm,”

...they just lost my business.

I wonder if it was the franchise owner or corporate.

Chick-fil-A: Who We Are. A Response to Recent Controversy.

For many months now, Chick-fil-A’s corporate giving has been mischaracterized. And while our sincere intent has been to remain out of this political and social debate, events from Chicago this week have once again resulted in questions around our giving. For that reason, we want to provide some context and clarity around who we are, what we believe and our priorities in relation to corporate giving.

A part of our corporate commitment is to be responsible stewards of all that God has entrusted to us. Because of this commitment, Chick-fil-A’s giving heritage is focused on programs that educate youth, strengthen families and enrich marriages, and support communities. We will continue to focus our giving in those areas. Our intent is not to support political or social agendas.

As we have stated, the Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators.

For better understanding of our corporate giving, please click here to download the PDF document titled
“Chick-fil-A: Who We Are.”

I think there was a complete misrepresentation of what was said. They didn’t say they would cease to support family, life, or Christian charities. They said they would not support organizations SPECIFICALLY DEDICATED to opposing gay marriage. There are only a few small organizations that fit that description, and I doubt whether they supported them in the first place.

I wouldn’t advise anyone to believe what the left wing press says, especially since they twist their language when talking about anything gay.

I think Lefties are twisting this to make those of us who support traditional morality lose heart. Here is part of the statement on Chick Fil A’s website.

“A part of our corporate commitment is to be responsible stewards of all that God has entrusted to us. Because of this commitment, Chick-fil-A’s giving heritage is focused on programs that educate youth, strengthen families and enrich marriages, and support communities. We will continue to focus our giving in those areas. Our intent is not to support political or social agendas.”

The statement can be read in full here,

THIS IS BS.

This is the spin from some Chicago Democrat.

Don’t believe the accusations.

Wait until you hear from “the good guys.”

Dang, some FReepers are stupid. So eager to believe the worst, from the mouths of the worst kind of people.

I’ll be waiting to see if the gays have their own “Chick-Fil-A day” to celebrate their “victory”.

This is why government only gets worse. This is why the GOP is headed to the dustbin of history. This is why our republic is dead. No one with any authority has cojones to stand up and say “You will not cross this line.”

The martyrs of ancient Rome died for their faith. St. Thomas More was murdered for standing on principle. The early Jesuits died horribly trying to bring the faith to the Indians. Today, in America, no one has the courage of his convictions and will defend them - no matter what.

Guess what - we are already a conquered nation. Wear your chains proudly.

IF SECESSION NOT, THEN REVOLUTION MUST.

I must say I’m really disappointed. Selling out for one lousy restaurant in Chicago.

If Chick-Fil-A really stopped funding Focus On The Family because of the militant queers (that's right, I said it), then I am going to write a letter to Dan Cathy, and tell him how much I supported CFA when they were standing up for righteousness.

I will also tell him that my family will not be returning to CFA. Capitulation after how we supported them? SPINELESS.

If the store is built, then they probably caved.

Satan is very pleased with his accomplishment. Chick-fil-A has willingly allowed themselves to be corrupted by his evil. Satan will always take advantage of those who stray from God's Word.
