Posted on 09/19/2012 11:59:56 AM PDT by Daffynition
The seeds of chaos were planted in July when Chick-fil-A President Dan Kathy appeared on a radio show and publicly stated that his company opposes same-sex marriage. It didnt take long for his statements to reverberate throughout the nation, with civil rights groups, media outlets and the public at large responding feverishly. This, teamed with the angst that was already created months before over Chick-fil-As past donations to groups that support the traditional family unit, created a furor.
With the dust having finally settled, a shocking report from a Chicago-based gay rights group claims that the fast food chain has now pledged to stop funding groups that stand against legalizing gay marriage. In a press release on Tuesday, The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) announced that an internal Chick-fil-A document shows that the company is re-thinking which organizations it will fund.

No, the real question is why do you beleive this?
The logic of an un-sourced, unverified story about a man with a sixty year record of conservatism, would cave to homosexuals to sell a chicken sandwich - is bull s#it.
They've no idea what they've done. It isn't enough for the homosexual lobby to have Chick-fil-A stop funding certain groups. They will demand some type of of contribution to one of their own activist groups, or have the restaurant sponsor ‘ Gay appreciation day ‘ or some such rot.
And this was done for what reason? So you may gain favor with the liberals in a handful of American cities? How much profit is worth selling out your convictions?
Because I once voted for McCain? I’m used to backstabbers. I’m only surprised these days when the knife that’s sticking in my back doesn’t have an R on it.
The one dated Jul. 31, 2012?
Yep. They could also contribute the same amount of cash personally, instead of as a corporation.
They have always been a strong Christian company, and I just can’t see them caving now.
It’s fine they want their gay employees to be treated fairly. I’m sure they already are for the most part.
If they DO cave, I think they will lose TONS of customers, I know they will lose me.
When I hear it from Chik-Fil-A I will believe it, Until them I will not believe any web site who posts otherwise. I would also never post a piece of crap on this site that has not been verified.
With the dust having finally settled, a shocking report from a Chicago-based gay rights group claims that the fast food chain has now pledged to stop funding groups that stand against legalizing gay marriage.
Then there's this:
In a press release on Tuesday, The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) announced that an internal Chick-fil-A document shows that the company is re-thinking which organizations it will fund.
So all this is some Chicago homo group "claims blah blah blah."
And another group that 'claims' that it has seen internal documents?
Why would CFA change, it increased their business and broadened their name.
I look forward to the day when these homos, these sodomites go too far and they lose all their clout and people go back to believing what God said, it is an abomination.
I really wish somebody on our side would work as hard to de-fund leftist causes as Van Jones is working to de-fund ours.
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. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.
If one were prone to parse language, one could interpret this to mean "Chik-Fil-A" wants to stay out of politics, which they should, but it doesn't address the political activities of the Winshape Foundation, their charity foundation.
So until I see a definitive statement from Chik-Fil-A and Winshape, I'm not buying it.
SO.... Obama sicked the IRS and EPA on them?
Why does the can have two lids?
Rather similar to the 'foreign policy' Hillary is selling us.
Well, that’s doesn’t seem fair, I don’t even have one.
Oh.... like facts count these days!
The latest press release on the web site (http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Pressroom/Press-Releases) is dated 31 July 2012.
No info about them “caving in”.
Why does the can have two lids?
Dinner for two, matching engagement rings.
