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.

Perhaps they have *caved* according to this press release.
If this is true, then IMHO they are making a huge mistake. They will loose all the goodwill, and probably a lot of customers they gained by standing up for what they believe.
Mission accomplished for the Lavender mafia. :(
I’ll believe it when Chic-fil-A actually puts out their own press release until then though... It’s just another dis-information campaign to me.
” Winshape, a non-profit funded by Chick-fil-a, has donated millions of dollars to anti-LGBT groups, including some classified as hate groups”
One of those “hate groups” was Focus On The Family.
Guess I’ll pull my CFA bumper sticker off.
Why do we always cave on the absolute most important point but the other side never does? Why?
True....seems there is no limit to what the progressive machine will go to pressure opinion their way...and destroy any traditional/conservative values that are in their way.
Because we always think they’ll stop at “just this one thing”.
The left will never like them unless they donate to gay causes.
CFA just lost a lot of good will it had built up with the casual eater who got caught up in the latest flap - who might have become a regular.
Me? I eat there anyway because I have a power card and get a free chicken sandwich with a # 1 - 8 meal.
I don’t buy it. I read the press release from Chick-Fil-A and all they said is they wouldn’t donate to organizations with political causes.
I think they can, and will, continue to give to faith-based groups and churches.
Please contact Mr.Cathy and see if this is true and post it.
This makes no sense. The body of that statement says that Chik-fil-A sent a note to their franchises that they should not discriminate. They never discriminated against anyone.
WinShape is ostensibly the Cathy Family Foundation. They are not going to stop teaching young people that men & women are different, they are not going to stop offering marriage seminars to couples that stress the concepts in Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians.
It’s not happening.
Why do you believe every report on the net, why?
The fact that Cathy’s name is mispelled with a “K” makes this smell like B.S.
Let’s pray that they don’t cave and continue to support faith-based groups and churches.
