What came first: da chickn or deceit?

Who knew barnyard animals could be so hateful?

Chick-Fil-A has given over a million dollars to groups that sponsor homophobic activities and publicize lies and distortions about LGBT groups and gay marriage. These groups include Focus on the Family (with which Chik-Fil-A has a partnership), and the following groups:

  • National Christian Foundation: $631,600
  • Fellowship Of Christian Athletes: $480,000
  • Serving Marriages, Inc.: $15,000
  • Alliance Defense Fund: $5,000
  • Christian Camp And Conference Association: $5,000
  • Campus Crusade for Christ: $2,850
  • Georgia Family Council: $2,000
  • Family Research Council: $1,000

In addition, Chick-Fil-A:

  • investigates would-be franchise owners for “sin” (employees may be fired for committing “sin”)
  • sponsors hate groups such as the American Family Association
  • has a charitable arm (called WinShape) that sponsored activities that explictly exclude gay singles or couples

Eat more chickn, or beef, or fish, or whatever you like. Just don’t support a bunch of homophobic bigots like Chick-Fil-A.
