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?"
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

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. :)

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!

(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.

Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy dies, leaves legacy of faith in business
....
But more intriguing than the financial successes of the Chick-fil-A is the way it was able to weave Cathy’s faith into the corporate fabric without compromise. Cathy was a devout Southern Baptist who taught Sunday school to teenage boys for more than half a century. Because he believed that faith was not merely a private matter, it flavored the way he ran his business.

I am resurrecting plenty of old threads today!

I just recently started working at the Chick-Fil-A headquarters in Atlanta. What a great place to work! I dont know a company that treats their employees, including the gay ones, better than this one. They provide free breakfast and lunch (they actually cook whole meals. so its not like youre eating chicken sandwiches everyday and getting huge), and are the nicest people you could ever be around. I am very grateful to spend my days here.

Just wanted to share, because I recently had a discussion with some folks who are still "boycotting" because CFA "doesnt align with their views" and theyre mad. (I suppose that is their right!) Its sad to hear, because the leadership here is full of the nicest, most loving, compassionate people anywhere, and they do so much good around the world.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Oh, I should also point out, for those who didnt know, that the 3rd highest person in the company, behind the Cathy's, is Orthodox. :)

The best reason to boycott Chic-fil-a is because it is unhealthy fast food.

And I'm not sure I would call it "boycotting" as opposed to not patronizing.  What's the difference anyway?

I didnt re-read the whole thread, so I wasnt referencing anyone here. I was referencing conversations outside of here that I recently had where "boycotting" was the term used.

And sure, the food is unhealthy. Certainly wouldnt recommend eating it daily. But you could say that for almost every restaurant. I think they are healthier than many other options.

My husband's caregiver won't eat at Chick-fil-A because he claims they "hate gays". Considering that gays eat and work there, that attitude is kind of silly, imo. I worked at CFA for 2 years and they treat their employees better than any other company I've worked for, before or since.

Yup. And as far as the corporate office is concerned, I can vouch that nobody here "hates" anyone. Its quite the opposite actually.

lol.

Although it may seem odd, I dont believe they consider them much of a threat. They view the higher level fast food (Panera, Starbucks, etc) as their primary competition.

I wouldn't know, since I haven't been there for ages. But I do suppose so, or else they should have gone bankrupt at some point or another.

KFC is an occasional guilty pleasure of mine. However, I only eat there when I know I dont have any plans the following day.

I am resurrecting plenty of old threads today!

I just recently started working at the Chick-Fil-A headquarters in Atlanta. What a great place to work! I dont know a company that treats their employees, including the gay ones, better than this one. They provide free breakfast and lunch (they actually cook whole meals. so its not like youre eating chicken sandwiches everyday and getting huge), and are the nicest people you could ever be around. I am very grateful to spend my days here.

Just wanted to share, because I recently had a discussion with some folks who are still "boycotting" because CFA "doesnt align with their views" and theyre mad. (I suppose that is their right!) Its sad to hear, because the leadership here is full of the nicest, most loving, compassionate people anywhere, and they do so much good around the world.
I was wondering about the working conditions just the week before last, when I went to the nearest Chick-Fil-A.  The staff is always cheerful. I wondered do they beat them to make them smile or else? ;)

I have toured the facility where they beat the ones who dont smile enough!!

But seriously... They have a 97% retention rate at the HQ. People dont leave bc they love it. If it were a bad company, that rate would be significantly lower.

KFC is outrageously expensive, especially when you compare KFC to other fast-food restaurants. I could buy half a roasted chicken for the price of a few chunks of chicken at KFC.

The term would be "less bad".  "Healthier" is kind of relative.  It's still fast food.  A chicken sandwich at even Denny's or IHOP is likely much better in taste and quality.

1) yes, I live on the west coast (California Wine Country) 2) yes I have eaten at Chic-fil-a (maybe twice now).  A location opened up in town a year or so ago. 3) Chic-fil-a HQ is located in Georgia, which is in "The South" (or even the "Deep South") which has the most unhealthy overall eating habits in the country.

I haven't set foot in a McD's or Burger King in a few years now and there are others I only patronize a handful of times a year combined.

True we have some bad eating habits! Unless you actually live in ATL like I do. There are plenty of hip/vegan/organic/healthy options here. We still have plenty of pub grub though. Arent many chain establishments near me. While Georgia is full of rednecks, like the stereotype you have in your mind, Atlanta is nothing like the rest of the state.

The midwest is the only region that compares to the souths eating habits. Food is equally as unhealthy, but the portions are nearly double.

I have access to all the free CFA i want on a daily basis. Including soft serve machines and milkshakes. This is not the easiest place to be an Orthodox Christian during Lent! We do have a good salad bar, and plenty of veggies with each meal also. Like I said, one of the top guys in the whole company is Orthodox. And there are a handful of us scattered around as well.

If I can do Lent here, with only limited failures, Ill be a saint by Pascha!

I have a couple of Orthodox friends who work there and are treated very well..

I am also impressed with the level of service you get there.... I wonder if they have a higher pay scale than the other fast food places? I really dont know

Chicken is not unhealthy... Toss the sugary bun.
Your idea has been debunked 1000 times already.. Maybe 1001 will be the charm
