Chick-fil-A Ceases Anti-gay Donations, Clarifies Stance on Gay Customers & Employees

Quote
September 18, 2012 – Chicago, Illinois – The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA), Illinois’ leading lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights advocacy organization, has learned that Alderman Moreno has finalized his negotiations with Chick-Fil-A.  Alderman Moreno has confirmed that Chick-fil-A will no longer give money to anti-gay organizations and that they have clarified in an internal document that the company will treat every person equally, regardless of sexual orientation. The Civil Rights Agenda worked closely with the Alderman in an advisory role as he negotiated these concessions with the executives at Chick-fil-A.  Additionally, members of TCRA spoke directly with executives at Chick-fil-A during negotiations to aid in educating their decision makers about anti-discrimination policies and issues affecting the LGBT community.

In a letter addressed to Alderman Moreno and signed by Chick-fil-A’s Senior Director of Real Estate, it states, “The WinShape Foundations 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.”  Winshape, a non-profit funded by Chick-fil-a, has donated millions of dollars to anti-LGBT groups, including some classified as hate groups.  In meetings the company executives clarified that they will no longer give to anti-gay organizations.
Smart move.
Unfortante. They caved to the lefty bullies.

The Market has decided. You should be happy.
The market did not decide. Chick fil a was still pulling in plenty of money. Lefties in the media decided.

This is the naivete of you invisible hand types. The market always decides. The invisible hand operates within the media, government, labor unions, communists, etc.

You just like the invisible within your own image.

Adam Smith has the tautological insight of a Taoist.

Do you think I believe in "the invisible hand?"

My thoughts exactly.  What hate groups?
Find any LGBT group and you have a hate group. Those people make me sick with how much vitriol they spew at anyone who does not agree with them.

The most hateful and mean spirited people I have ever seen are so called tolerants.  It doesn't matter what group or their cause.  They are vicious evil people who want you to succumb to their ways or they attempt to destroy you.  Counter as much as you want.  The evidence supports our statements.

But as I always say, there will be an exception now and again.  However, most have become the very thing they claim to fight against.

Really?  Because when people are shouting and screaming on sopboaxes at ASU, it's invariably a man calling for the repentance of "those evil and wicked blasphemers of God: the homosexuals."  I have yet to encounter an LGBT group shouting at me as I walk to the library.

Had some Chick-Fil-A this afternoon. Place was filled to the brim.

The last couple of weeks I've been eating spicy chicken sandwiches there a lot. Smiley

Someone quipped: "Is metropolitn Philip going to give a dispensation for chicken on Wed. to  all our culture warriors?" Plus it's the beginning of the fast, you know.

The whole purpose of the fast is to eat fast food.

yeah. hamburgers. delicioso!

I don't know what this thread is about, but I'm on Chick-Fil-A's side.

That is like saying, I don't know what bananas are. But they are quite tasty.

(CNN) -- Chick-fil-A restaurants' philanthropic WinShape Foundation no longer funds the most controversial and politically charged anti-same-sex-marriage groups and has not since 2011, according to Campus Pride, a leading national LGBT campus organization.
....
Windmeyer acknowledged that WinShape continues to fund groups that don't condone same-sex marriage based on biblical beliefs but says these groups, such as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, don't operate with the same hard-nosed political agenda the other groups [e.g., Family Research Council; Exodus International] are known for.
