Chick-fil-A Sets the Record Straight
CitizenLink ^ | Sept 20, 2012 | Karla Dial

Posted on 09/21/2012 5:24:07 AM PDT by fwdude

In response to media reports that Chick-fil-A has agreed to stop making charitable donations to groups like Focus on the Family, the company today released a statement to set the record straight.

Contrary to reports first made by the gay-activist group The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) on Tuesday and later picked up by mainstream media outlets, Chick-fil-A and its charitable-giving arm, the WinShape Foundation, did not agree to stop making donations to groups that support the biblical definition of marriage in exchange for being allowed to open a franchise in Chicago.

“For many months now, Chick-fil-A’s corporate giving has been mischaracterized,” executives said in today’s statement. “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.”

According to a TCRA press release issued Tuesday, “In meetings the company executives clarified that they will no longer give to anti-gay organizations.”

That was the stipulation gay activists, led by Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno, made earlier this summer, after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said in interviews that he and his family are “guilty as charged” of holding biblical views on marriage. Moreno vowed to block the construction of the franchise unless the company changed its beliefs and stopped supporting “hate groups.” Moreno relented to the construction this week, spinning Chick-fil-A’s statement as a victory for his side — despite the fact that it was made before he denied the permit.

Moreover, many news agencies reported that Chick-fil-A had specifically agreed not to give money to Focus on the Family or the National Organization for Marriage (NOM). NOM said Wednesday it has never received money from the foundation. Focus on the Family has.

Some people were quick to criticize the 66-year-old chicken chain for “caving” to political pressure. Focus on the Family President Jim Daly said that’s not what happened.

“Dan and Bubba Cathy are my Christian brothers and good friends. They and their company have long shared Focus on the Family’s commitment to helping build strong and thriving families — and they have in no way deviated from that deeply held and biblically inspired passion while working with the city of Chicago to open Chick-fil-A restaurants there,” Daly said.

“I feel bad the Cathys are having once again to endure media accounts mischaracterizing their values and charitable efforts — and, unfortunately, I know how they feel. Focus on the Family has for 35 years been dedicated to saving and strengthening marriages, helping couples raise happy, resilient kids and encouraging and empowering men and women to advocate for God’s truth with Christ’s heart. And still, in stories like some of those about Chick-fil-A’s efforts to expand in Chicago, we are described as being ‘hateful’ toward certain groups of people.

“How is an organization that helps save one marriage every six minutes and helps parents navigate through a crisis involving their children every 90 seconds deemed ‘anti’ anything but ‘anti-family breakdown’?” he concluded. “That’s a question we would hope the media begins to ask with more regularity of those who disagree with us and with Chick-fil-A for bringing our Christian values to bear on the work we do in the public square.”

FOR MORE INFORMATION Read Chick-fil-A’s statement of corporate identity and values.

The outrage over Leftists' claims of victory seems to have been a little premature. I'm still watching, but this release seems to be good news.

See my previous remarks.

As I said in the link, those bright, homosexual admen, Kirk and Pill (who wrote the famous gay brainwashing tract, "After the Ball") pointed out that homosexuals make some of the best liars and conmen in the world. One should not necessarily take their pronoucements at face value.

I’m with you that the outrage was premature as CFA had not released an official statement. The article’s characterization of the Huff’nPuff Post as “mainstream” just makes me gag, though.

Just like the left saying “you can’t legislate morality”.

Bullsqueeze. Laws inherently legislate morality. What the left means is “you can’t legislate YOUR morality, but we can legislate ours”.

This appears to be saying that WinShape will give to marriage and family programs to support marriages and to support families.

He suggests they have never given for political purposes but always to support strengthening marriage and family. They will continue to support marriage and family, and the will continue not to get involved in political advocacy through WinShape.

I can buy that.

I can also suppose that in their private giving that the Cathy’s support a who range of groups, candidates, etc.

These sleazeballs tried to characterize their backing down as a win and to damage Chick-fil-a's reputation nationwide...That's the Chicago way to turn a loss into a win. Chicago is full of scumbags like this guy.

BTW, the mass media turds will not be correcting the record on this unless they're forced to.

To the sodomite Left, marriage and family programs to support marriages and to support families IS "hate" and "bigotry." This is what they've been saying all this time, that traditional marriage is "hate" and "bigotry."

Indescribably evil reprobates.

It wasn't only the left, but the Chicago left, which takes leftism to a compounded level of insanity and militancy (if that's even possible.) As thingumbob pointed out, Chicago thuggery involves incessant, blatant lying, extortion, and pandering to a base so far out in left field, they have to enlarge the field.

Remember, lying to the modern day leftist is always “justifiable” in their mind since they stand for “the common good”. I remember when we voted on how our state would legally define marriage, the anti-marriage forces lied and said the pro-man-woman legal definition would result in invalidating all marriages in the state in order to con some of the undiscerning into voting against it.

I agree with you. Sadly, these same reprobates are fighting to make their viewpoint the language of our law, so that any mention of the normal is automatically viewed as hate speech.

But, and I say this as a degreed family consultant and educator myself, that WinShape would NOT agree to “save the ‘marriage’ of a same-sex couple.”

Having been through a major secular university, I found myself on a serious hotseat on that issue. My response to them that I would not counsel such a couple to “save” their ‘marriage’ did not set well. Fortunately, one of their staff in the research department was a Christian, and we agreed that I’d just be up-front with such people from the get-go. I saw no problem with being honest with people. If they then chose not to continue with me, then that was their business.

That’s because to the left, politics is their religion. Anything less than complete and total agreement and submission is “hatred” and “persecution.”

Wow. The homonazis aren’t even trying to be subtle with their propaganda any longer.

They label their group The Civil Rights Agenda so that their political agenda — which is one entirely of a chosen lifestyle — will be intertwined with the black civil rights movement of the 1960’s.

You can’t get much more blatant than that.

My question to the homonazis is this:
Why do you think you deserve special and extra rights that heterosexuals do not have?

Did you read that right?

Yes, you did.

The law and the cultural standard right now is that marriage is defined as one, unmarried adult man marrying by consent one unmarried adult female of a separate bloodline.

All of us heterosexuals live by that rule and do not contest it. Even if we don’t find someone of the opposite sex that we want to marry.

The homonazis are supposed to live by the same rules. But they want EXTRA rules. In addition to BEING FULLY ALLOWED BY LAW AND SOCIETAL MORES TO MARRY AN ELIGIBLE CANDIDATE OF THE OPPOSITE SEX, they want the ADDITIONAL rights of being able to marry someone of the same sex BECAUSE THEY WANT TO, not because they have to or need to or have some civil right to.

Do not accept their premise, as it is a flawed one.

And, yes, this is one of those arguments where the law of the slippery-slope is legitimate. If they say they can change the rules, then anyone can, and that opens the door to bigamy, polygamy, no age restrictions, no bloodline restrictions, and, yes, for those animal lovers out there, why not, they’ll say...

We really need to stand up against the homonazi lobby, because they are electing the Obammie-the-Commies of the world with the understanding that the communists/socialists will give them what they want.

Here's what really happened.

"I demanded Chick-Fil-A add hot sauce to its chicken
sandwiches and serve them w/ a side of sofrito,
in a banana leaf," said Alderman Proco Joe Moreno.

=============================================

Ho'bama has said nary a word abiout the controversy----but his ex-COS, CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM SPOKE OUT ABOUT "CHICAGO VALUES" wrt the Chick-Fil-a controversy......

Mayor Rahm danced into the controversy after Alderman Proco Joe Moreno (1st ward) publicly announced his opposition to Chick-Fil-A opening in his ward.

Mayor Rham chuckled while doing a graceful plie: "It's easy to do business in Chicago when you know 'the rules.' Chick-Fil-A can open in our town as long as it adopts 'Chicago Values.' "

(1) weekly cash pay off to the alderman;

(2) hire six of the alderman's friends who work only random days of the month,

(3) BIG AL from the Mayor's office picks up all cash in brown paper bags at CFA's back door,

(4) Chick Fil A staff trained to shoot 10-12 customers per month,

(5) Any CFA customers actually killed must be registered to vote as Democrats,

(6) $100,00 campaign contribution to Obama,

(7) free food to Jesse Jackson, Jr, who is now "convalescing," b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.

=========================================

THIS JUST IN: The Chicago Ballet Ensemble announces that
Mayor Rahm Emanuel will debut in the presentation of a new
Chicago ballet: "The Godfather--Bang-Bang, You're Dead. "

Mayor Rahm in dress rehearsal.

According to the sodomite lobby, I must be supporting their cause.

So many FReepers "jumped the gun" on the bull-shit reports coming out yesterday without actually reading CFA's statement. Too many gullible people - that really surprised me.

While we may see some sins as more ‘serious” than others, we’re all awfully good at justifying our own while condemning anyone who commits one we find offensive.....that distorts the Gospel and has never done anything to win a lost soul to Christ!

The gist of “you can’t legislate morality” is that you cannot instill civility/morality simply by making laws. For example, we can codify to our hearts’ content when it comes to killing the unborn, but that will not change the heart of someone intent on making themselves the ultimate judge of right and wrong and taking that life anyway.

I am so glad to see this post! I’ve already posted this link to one FReeper in particular who refused to trust CFA and instead he believed the BS the gay mafia was spewing out.

But sadly... There were so many more. There were 3-4 threads this week with misleading headlines and excerpts designed (by the enemedia of course) to lead people (sheeple) to believe Dan Cathy had caved in and sucked up (bad analogy, I know) to the homo’s.

Freepers - of all people - need to excercise caution and use a brain when it comes to the lies, disinformation and total BS the enemy is reporting.

Stop with the modern lie that Jesus "hung out" with the worst of the worst. It is a LIE. He went to rescue them, not to leave them in their condition, and certainly not to party with them. Jesus NEVER went into a house of ill repute to yuck it up with prostitutes and criminals, he met them in their homes, in the public square, but after meeting them, THEY WERE NO LONGER THE SAME if they would remain in His presence. These people were receptive to what Jesus had to say; their motivation wasn't to attack him and insist that that certain ungodly demands be met, as these homosexual activists are doing. This "commoning" of Jesus is one of the most damaging modern heresies of our time. It degrades Jesus. He came down, certainly, but to lift us up, not to remain in the gutter with us. That's a liberal "christian" position.

The Obama media is very powerful. They take a lie and spin it and spin it again, releasing the lie to ‘trusted’ media sources, but the lie remains. Good people are led to believe it because the ‘trusted’ media is reporting the lie as fact.

This is why everyone on our side should remain calm during all of the polls, the Romney attacks, etc. Obama and the gang are in panic mode, I think it’s clear to see.

Today, it’s definitely Chick-fil-A for lunch.

Amen. We now need to automatically assume that everything, absolutely EVERYTHING issuing from the Mainstream media is lies. I’m to the point where my mom is worried at my radical skepticism, but I tell her it’s essential for our survival.
