Chick-fil-A is Anti-Gay: Fast-Food Chain Gave $1.7 Million to Anti-Gay Groups in ’09

Fast-food restaurant Chick-fil-A, known for its deliciously fresh chicken sandwiches, spelling-challenged cow ads and closed-on-Sundays policy, says its official corporate mission is to “glorify God.”

The company ought to add “to oppose gayness” to that mission statement.

According to Equality Matters, Chick-fil-A has donated more than $1.7 million to anti-gay groups in 2009 alone. Despite the fact that company president Dan Cathy has gone out of his way to assert that Chick-fil-A doesn’t have  an “agenda against anyone,” Equality Matters investigated and discovered more than $1 million in corporate donations to anti-gay organizations and causes from 2003-2008. A review of IRS records has now proven that figure to be closer to $2 million, with WinShape, Chick-fil-A’s charitable arm, contributing to the following groups in 2009:

  • Marriage & Family Legacy Fund: $994,199
  • Fellowship Of Christian Athletes: $480,000
  • National Christian Foundation: $240,000
  • Focus On The Family: $12,500
  • Eagle Forum: $5,000
  • Exodus International: $1,000
  • Family Research Council: $1,000

According to Equality Matters, WinShape has also given to the Campus Crusade for Christ, Serving Marriages Inc., and  the Georgia Family Council.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) claims to have “freed” people from homosexuality. In order to become an FCA Ministry Leader, applicants must agree with the group’s sexual purity statement, which condemns gays as practicing an “impure lifestyle.”

The National Christian Foundation (NCF) is a prolific contributor to anti-gay groups like  Focus on the Family, Family Life, and the Family Research Council.

Focus on the Family’s motto is “helping families thrive.” But one can only assume that by “family” the group only means ones that contain a married father and mother. Families made up of same-sex couples need not apply. FOF clearly considers gays to be sub-human creatures, evoking images of pedophilia in its description of the gay rights movement: “The homosexual agenda is a beast. It wants our kids.” The organization is a Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)-designated hate group.

So is the Family Research Council (FRC), which has falsely linked male homosexuality to pedophilia. Peter Sprigg, the FRC’s senior researcher for policy studies, has called for the criminalization of homosexuality and asserted that  “criminal sanctions” against gays should be enforced.  Sprigg has also ignorantly claimed that repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ the former ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the U.S. armed forces, would result in the molestation of heterosexual troops.

Exodus International is one of the world’s leading proponents and practitioners of “gay cure therapy,” in which homosexuals attempt to “pray away the gay.”

It is quite clear that despite insisting otherwise, Chick-fil-A clearly has a bigoted, homophobic agenda. The numbers don’t lie.

Chick-fil-A’s cows say: “Eat Mor Chikin.”

Moral Low Ground says: “Stay the cluck away from Chick-fil-A, for Chick-fil-A is anti-gay!”

    The founder of Chick-Fil-A is a Christian and built those values into his corporation, which is one reason it’s so successful. I have an atheist, gay coworker who is violently anti-Chick-Fil-A, and now I know why. It pokes two of his biggest ‘hot buttons’! Personally, I’ve supported Chick-Fil-A with my business since its inception, way back years ago where it started in a tiny house in Hapeville, GA, that was converted into a restaurant and will continue to do so.
