Chick-Fil-A Already Going Back On Their Pro-Equality Word??

SERIOUSLY??

At what point, especially after announcing that you're going to END anti-gay donations and require equal treatment, do you think it's okay to start going against your word?

If you've answered 'just a few days,' then you're probably Chick-Fil-A.

Even though the company said it would stop donating to antigay groups, it still held a fundraiser for one this week anyway.

How are the doing it? There might be a loophole in the promise — not donating DIRECTLY.

The fundraiser was for an organization that helps lobby against marriage equality, with registration forms for the event asking that checks be sent not to the WinShape Foundation that Chick-fil-A owns and runs, but directly to the Marriage and Family Foundation.

The Chick-fil-A logo accompanies everything online (even right beside sponsorship packages!), and so does the WinShape name!

This isn't some new organization, either: WinShape had given them more than $1 million in 2010 alone.

Sounds pretty shady to us!

Equality is something to take very seriously — we will NOT be tricked!

Do U think there's something wrong with this??

    I love this place, let them do what you want, you should stop being so CRAY and just stop going there if you don't like them or what they stand for.

    Don't like what they are doing with THEIR money then don't eat there. Simple as that. Don't support them or anything. It's their right to donate to whatever they want. I don't think it's cool to deny people their rights to get married so none of my money will ever go to these charities. But I'm not going to bully people into believing what I believe in and force them to donate to causes on my side.
    Honestly, though I think it's stupid for a company to donate to such a controversial charity. If they donated to anti-animal abuse charities or money to help schools or something basically neutral they wouldn't be getting so much flack. And employees wouldn't be getting harassed, vandalism would have been avoided. It just seems financially smarter to stay out of it. Just my opinion though.

    i am sick to death of hearing about this. let the company do what they want. if you don't like it, then don't eat there. but quit complaining about it. they sure as heck aren't suffering because of this. and let me tell you a little something about chickfila that it seems most people don't know. did you know that they help pay for their employees to go to college? here's another little something to go along with that. my best friend in the world, A GAY MAN, had most of his college education paid for by this company. and guess what. everyone within the company that helped make that happen knew he was gay. give this subject a rest already.

    Freedom of choice. If you don't like what a company does with their money, don't give them any. Just choose wisely.

    They have always required equal treatment for all employees and customers.

    ACTUALLY the story you posted was false, they never changed their stance or where their money went…

    They can do what they want. Your lifestyle is unacceptable in many peoples eyes… Most people, actually

    Stop eating there if u don't like it and quit be a bully you gay goof ball.

    Ha ha ha! Sounds like you're laying an egg, Mario. They should just go back to openly donating to defense of traditional marriage groups. There's a hundred times more of us then there are of you.

    Boohoo you can't always get what you want, this place is good. Everyone has a right to their own opinions.

    You act like what they're doing is illegal, it isn't. Who are you or anyone else to tell them who they can/can't contribute to? If you don't like it, don't eat there, it's as simple as that. It's not like their food is delicious and something you HAVE to have. There are plenty of other options when it comes to fast food. I believe in equal rights for everyone, so I stay away from places that don't support that. When you start bullying someone for doing something that's perfectly legal, just because you have a different view, it makes you worse than they are. I also don't understand why they are constantly singled out when there are much larger companies (like Walmart, for example) that contribute to the same things and share the same views.

    you and your libby ilk are all for free speach until some one says something you disagree with.A hypocritical asshole is, other than felony criminals, the worst kind of human being extant. In case you don't understand, you are a hypocritical asshole.

    in spite of all his bitching, I'll bet he goes through the drive through and eats the 3 times per week. UMMMM CHICKEN,, It is good for his diet. hypocritical asshole.

    Re: raypearson – I did not know they had any drive-thrus, all the ones in Southern California that I have been to are in food courts in shopping malls, like Del Amo or South Bay Galleria.

    And yes, the owners are conservative Christians (they are closed on Sunday for example) so they are entitled to their beliefs.

    You are all right, chik fil a IS entitled to their opinion. But, so is Perez Hilton. So all you haters that are condemning Perez for posting his opinion on his website are being hypocrites. Perez is not being a bully. This post in no way bullies readers into anything, it is merely reporting information and giving an opinion about that information.

    What irresponsible reporting!!! If you looked at the 2010 Form 990 you would see that the ADDRESS of The Marriage and Family Foundation IS and always has been at Buffington Road. That is because the Marriage and Family Foundation IS an arm of Chick FilA to assist with their marriage camps for heterosexual couples, etc. BOTTOM LINE: It is their money and their beliefs! They can spend it how they want, if you don't like it and so you don't want to eat there….fine! Don't!!! However, stop misreporting (they NEVER said they were changing….its all media spin) It just makes you look silly!

    Good for them. This is why there's a first amendment.

    GET OVER IT. It's ONE fast food joint in the whole wide world. Thought this was celeb gossip - no one wants to know your political views for real.

    I go to a food joint for the food, not the politics. There's something to be said for retail neutrality.
