And what’s shocking is not how much they’re giving to organizations that fight to take away freedoms from the LGBT community - it’s how LITTLE they’re now giving!
Chick-fil-A drastically reduced the money they gave to anti-gay groups in 2012, cutting their charitable donations down to almost nothing!
This is the same Chick-fil-A whose president has repeatedly spoken out against gay marriage??
Believe it or not, the fast food chicken company went from giving more than $3.6 million dollars to groups like Marriage & Family Foundation and the National Christian Foundation in 2011 to just $25,000 in 2012!
That’s a 99% reduction!
OK, 100% would be better, especially since the restaurant chain promised to cut ties to ALL anti-gay groups two years ago. And it’s not like they’re donating any of their profits to GLAAD or the Trevor Project or, you know, an organization that aims to actually help gays and lesbians.
But this is undeniably a step in the right direction!
The $25K, in case you were wondering, went to the anti-LGBT Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Apparently Christian athletes stay in shape by eating fried chicken biscuits.
