Chick-Fil-A Caves To LGBT And Christian Organizations Will Pay The Price
Chick-fil-A has announced that they will be changing how and to who they donate money to. It appears that they have cowered to pressure from the LGBT community.
On Monday the company announced that it is “refocusing” how it will donate money and will focus exclusively on education, homelessness, and hunger.
“Our goal is to donate to the most effective organizations in the areas of education, homelessness and hunger. No organization will be excluded from future consideration – faith based or non-faith based,” Tim Tassopoulos, president and COO of Chick-fil-A, said in a statement.
According to tax records, Chick-fil-A donated money to several Christian schools and groups in 2018. Not one of those groups appeared on the list that Chick-fil-A gave money to in 2019.
“There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” he told the site. “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”
Chick-fil-A has now cut off the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home. LGBTQ activists have been attacking Chick-fil-A for donating funds to those organizations because of their position on homosexuality.
Breitbart News reports that in 2018:
Chick-fil-A gave $115,000 to the Salvation Army for the Angel Tree program, which provided gifts for 11,000 children during the holiday season. The fast-food chain also gave $1.65 million to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes to provide underserved youth with week-long summer sports camps at historically black colleges and universities (HCBU).
I’m sorry, Chick-fil-A chickened out! They should be ashamed of themselves! Tassopoulos quote saying, “there’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets. There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.” That is code for we are going to compromise our beliefs to make more money and get the LGBT mob off their back.
