Posted on 07/05/2012 7:19:28 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Chick-fil-A gave $2 million to seven anti-gay groups in 2010, the most recent year for which figures are available, according to Equality Matters' analysis of its charitable giving.

IOW: Chick-fil-A supports only groups that follow the teachings in the Bible.
I wish I could stomach their food. Way too salty, unfortunately.
We don’t have them up my way but I’ve heard they’re pretty good.It’s good to see that they contribute to respectable political and social causes.I’m also impressed by the fact that they close on Sunday!
You sure he wasn't from FSU?............
Hmmm... Guess i’ll grab lunch at the local chik today.

I’d love to support Chick-fil-a, but sadly there are none in Michigan. Not sure how far north they come, or if there are any future plans to expand north.
Think I’ll be having lunch there today
Chick-fil-A is the only fast food restaurant that I ever give any business.
Doesn't that make pro-gay "anti-hetero?"
Their owner was a Christian I believe and always closed on Sundays as they still do. Wonderful for them. And look at their businesses. They are always full of customers. They are living right and thus getting God’s blessings for doing so.
You could stop by and grab a drink from time to time.
Funny, but no, definitely no.
I wish that Moveon.org or some other left wing group would post a nationwide list of all of the businesses that good liberals are supposed to boycott. I would try to give all of my business to companies on the list.
I suspect they are spinning this just a little.
He gives a lot of money to Christian groups who oppose the gay agenda tho that is probably a tiny bit of their activities.
Their owner *is* a Christian, Mr. Truett Cathy. The company is privately held.
I agree. I love the food they sell but it is at least 10 miles further than McD’s and Burger King so of course they are visited more by my family (when we eat that type of crap). In the last year, we have went to Chick-fil-A one time and went to the others about five times.
When they say “anti-gay” group they are including any Christian group. I never used to go to Chick-fil-A only because I’m not that big on chicken sandwiches but after I discovered the Christian background of the organization I leaned to like it and eat there all the time now.
We ate there yesterday.
Guess I’ll eat there three times today.
“Here’s How Much Money Chick-fil-A Gives To Anti-Gay Groups”
Should be “Pro-Family groups”, or at least “anti-pervert groups” or “anti-homosexual groups”.
Gay? Why would they be against happy people?
Article would have us believe that active gay-bashing is the only mission of these groups.
They are Christian groups who happen to believe marriage is between one man and one woman.
How is THAT “anti-gay”?
I will be dining at my local Chik-fil-A next time I can.
I like their stuff anyways. I generally get the basic chicken sandwich, special fries and a milkshake.
Maybe shouldn’t eat it for 3 meals a day for 10 years but I go there a few times. It’s good stuff.
I'm sure there are institutions who give to homosexual supporting groups.
If you want a homosexual country, support the others. If you want a mom and pop country, support these guys.
It's really quite simple to figure out.
Love walking into a Chick-Fil-A and hearing Christian music playing. Makes me think there is hope for America after all.
Why do they call them “anti-gay” instead of “pro-morality?”
“Gay? Why would they be against happy people?” That was my Plan B option for the first post.
Too greasy for my tastes, but as long as the kids like it, I’ll gladly take them there. And they’re not hurting for business ... ever try to get in the drive thru lane during a lunch rush?
I wonder how long it would take for the degenerates and wicked to start attacking Chick-fil-A. Lord, PLEASE come soon and spare us from the evil that is descending so thickly upon our land!

Isn’t Business Insider now owned by Bloomberg?
Yep. And since pro-lifers are labeled as anti-choice ... that makes pro-choicers anti-life.
Chick-fil-A also gave my daughters their first jobs. All three of them are productive worker bees. While they were still in college, they had a holiday job waiting for them every time they came home for a visit.
The Chick-fil-A where they worked somehow managed to get the nicest kids in town to work for them, and not a single illegal alien. During the combined five years over which my daughters worked for them, you could count on the fingers of one hand the number of kids which got fired. Generally, it was a jag-off who managed to hide their attitude just long enough to get hired. Other than those, it was only kids who consistently failed to show up for work.
One thing I’ve noticed is the gay boycott of Chick-fil-A has been highly successful... for Chick-fil-A.
Their restaurants — all doing a brisk business — have a nice, family-friendly environment.
I eat at Chick-fil-a any time I am near them it seems. The closest one is 2hrs away and the kicker is I am allergic to chicken so I get the salad and ice tea, but my boys enjoy the food and my wife loves it. I am happy to support them for several reasons this being one of them. I also appreciate what they do for the kids that work for them.
They do offer it grilled. Maybe you should consider trying that.
Now that “Dear Leader” has “evolved”, it is a matter of either you push the homosexual agenda 100% or else they’re going to destroy you. Period.
The Chick-fil-A people are Christian people who have, for many years, devoted themselves and their money to Christian causes - children’s homes for one thing (going way back). We have family friends who worked for them for years.
God didn’t approve of homosexual behavior in the Law. He has not changed - magically - just because certain human beings have decided they like it.
True story: Once at McDonalds, I ordered a chicken salad. I specified grilled chicken, not fried. The employee was so busy yapping with her co-worker, she had to ask me twice if I wanted grilled or fried chicken. Finally, the salad arrived, and...you guessed it...the chicken was fried . Never had that problem at Chick fil a. Staff is courteous, helpful and professional. And the food doesn't give me indigestion.
always very good service and great shakes too
They are also the only chain restaurant I know of that is closed on Sundays.
“IOW: Chick-fil-A supports only groups that follow the teachings in the Bible.”
In theory, any group that isn’t pro-gay is anti-gay.
Here is what’s listed on Wikipedia, I don’t see a reference to Bloomberg.
The pro-gay movement is actually anti-Christ.
It is the vehicle through which the prince of this world seeks to criminalize Christian beliefs.
[ The company is privately held. ]
Which means they could even throw their money down a big hole they dug in the desert and it is completely no one else’s business what they do with it. (not to say that chik-fil-a is doing that as they are definately not doing so) but even if they were overtly literally burning money to heat their chicken it would still be no one else’s business that they were doing so.
I hate how the meddling left tells others what to do. Yet condems others who support a majority opinion on matters of social concern.
First, why is this article in “Business Insider”? It seems like a Huffpo type article....
Regardless, if you look at that list, they all have one thing in common. They are all Christian Organizations. is Jim Edwards anti-Christian? Is Business Insider anti-Christian? It must be. Maybe Jim and the Business Insiders would like Christianity to be abolished? It seems so.
We MUST start fighting back. The liberals are less that 30% of the population (btw- all studies agree that our population is less than 4% homosexual).
How about a story on what charities Progressive Insurance donates to? Or how about Salesforce.com? Who are the major contributors to The Tides Foundation and what groups receive the greatest funding from Tides? What charities does Business Insider contribute to?
A favorite food joint for liberals and blacks, ironically... I am not a food afficionado like them.
I always find it intriguing how liberals always attack the very foundations upon which their favorite hang outs and indulgences are performed.
Excellent post! If only ALL conservatives would follow your sage advice...
In the past few years they started appearing here in the Chicago suburbs, so they’ll no doubt be making their way to Michigan in the next few years.
