Skip to comments.'Gay' advocates cook up Chick-fil-A fairytale
Posted on 09/20/2012 4:50:07 PM PDT by NoCmpromiz
Gay media organizations and the mainstream press have headlined over the last two days Chick-fil-As change that they claim means the company suddenly is promising not to discriminate against homosexuals and that it would stop giving money to those organizations that promote traditional marriage.
But it appears the facts are that the companys anti-discrimination policy remains just as it was months ago .. and its donations appear to have had no new directive applied.
It was a statement from The Civil Rights Agenda that prompted the recent headlines. The statement said of the Cathy familys foundation, the WinShape Foundation, is now taking a much closer look at the organizations it considers helping, and in that process will remain true to its stated philosophy of not supporting organizations with political agendas.
The Civil Rights Agenda didnt name groups, but others did. One was the National Organization for Marriage, which responded immediately, Despite recent news articles claiming Chick-fil-As WinShape Foundation donated money to our organization this is false. The National Organization for Marriage has never received funding from them. We support Chick-fil-As philosophy that every person is treated with honor, dignity and respect regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender; and we will continue to endorse Chick-fil-A Wednesdays calling upon all supporters of marriage, free speech and religious liberty to thank Chick-fil-As president, Dan Cathy, for taking a courageous stand to speak out in defense of marriage and his freedom to speak.
The Family Research Council ..told WND that it has gotten nothing since a $1,000 donation in 2010.
Focus on the Family ..declined WNDs request for comment.
Even Anthony Martinez, TCRA executive director, said in an interview with Windy City Media Group that the language Chick-Fil-A uses in its non-discrimination policy hasnt changed.

If I was in his position I wouldn’t say a thing. the truth will come out all by itself and solidify his customer base while making the alderman demonstrably stoopit.
What "our camp" are we referring to? If it isn't Free Republic, then I misunderstood that part of the post. Many of us here last night were a little ticked off over a piece posted from the CSM that tried to make people believe that Chick-fil-A had bowed down to the homosexuals. That kind of crap should not be posted here until it can be verified by a credible source. If the "our camp" is refering to WND or conservatives in general, then disregard my post.
Good grief. How often do we have to re-learn this lesson? Do not give a presumption of truth to Chicago politicians and the EneMedia.
Thus the basis for my comment about incomplete research.
I am familiar with MSM, LSM, Old Gray Whore, The Liberal Media, PMSNBC, and such but I seem to be misinterpreting your acronym. Please enlighten me as to what CSM is... Commie Stupid Meadianuts? Controlled Servile Morons? Chicago Slime Midgets? Camp Smith Mortors? Cyber Sensitive Microns? maybe a Customer Service Manager from Walmart?
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!

Won't MAKE him stoopit, he's a Chitown Pol, so it's definitional...
Truth will come out.. yes. It had already surfaced. Before I chimed in on any of the threads on this topic, I searched and found the link I posted above, so it wasn't that hard to do...
I tend not to read/heed the nonChristian, unScientific Monitor. I didn't see a link to the CSM in any of the threads I looked at though. A link to the Wash Times, a link to the CFA facebook page, but nothing to the non, un, monitor.
Wasn't aware of this thread, thanks.
So I guess they should answer the question of when they stopped beating their wives.
I, for one, held off believing the "story" as "reported" and knew the truth would be learned in time. The full story will come to light, in due time.

and the Lord will reward you.
CFA is driving the gay lobby crazy with kindness. They tried intimidation, media smears, boycotts, and demonstrations without effect. If anything, they lost the war of public opinion, unified christians against them and prospered the company they were trying to destroy. Now they've resorted to subversion and outright lying to try and erode CFA's support. I hope they've already tried and failed to find disgruntled former employees to badmouth the company, or shady managers they can accuse of corruption or harrassment.
All along the company has quietly been serving the public with grace and politeness. When protesters showed up at the local CFA, the manager noticed it was a hot day and they didn't bring any water, so he had some brought out to them (in CFA cups!). The local news had them on video with CFA merch and they were too dense to understand how he played them!
Anyway, I don't know how CFA will react to this latest play, but I hope they keep pouring on the hot coals...
Then why hasn’t Chick-fil-A denied these claims?
WASHINGTON TIMES “Chick-fil-A stopped funding traditional-marriage groups in an effort to open a new Chicago restaurant, but the company initially kept quiet about the decision, prompting gay rights groups to speculate that the company feared a backlash from conservative customers.
The Christian-rooted fast food restaurant agreed to stop funding groups such as Focus on the Family that oppose same-sex marriage in a meeting with the Chicago politician who had been blocking the companys move there. Chick-fil-A wrote a letter to Alderman Joe Moreno affirming this, according to his spokesman, Matt Bailey, but the company initially wouldnt allow his office to release the letter to the public. Three weeks later they relented.”
Why did Chick-Fil-La even meet with this guy? Why give him a microphone? Chick-Fil-A has squandered their vindication and this nation’s overwhelming support by caring what leftists think, and it makes me utterly sick.
We will be eating at a new Mr. Bojangles from now on.

That's what I thought. Made up by homonazis to smear CFA.
You can eat at MickieD's too, feel free.
By the way, are you still beating your wife?
Will you deny it? Why haven't you responded?
Do you possibly see the parallel?
