Chick-Fil-A Donated Millions To Anti-Gay Groups

Even before the Chick-fil-A's COO Dan Cathy was making the rounds calling gay couples marrying "twisted", the chicken sandwich king was doling out big bucks to some of the most notorious anti-gay organizations working to block equal rights for the LGBT.

The company has donated nearly $5 million over the past 9 years to homophobic organizations like the Family Research Council and Exodus International, and their donations are getting larger and larger. In 2010 alone, Chick-fil-A donated over $1.9 million to anti-gay causes, more than any other year for which public records are available.

While the these groups encourage their supporters to eat at Chick-fil-a today to support discrimination, let your lunch money support equality and fairness.

A $6.50 contribution can help underwrite training materials for a Gay Straight Alliance Leadership Institute or cover the cost of water and clipboards for our election volunteers.

Take a stand today. Let them know we don't give our lunch money to bullies anymore.

Donate $6.50 - the price of a Chick-fil-A meal - toward inclusion and equality, a combo we can all agree on.

It is a shame that a company can't say that they disagree with something and then people that believe differently try to cut them down! They never said they didn't like, or hate you, they said they believe in Man and Woman marriages. Just get for real and stop trying to think the world hates you! Maybe if you can find peace within yourself then you want think the world hates you. I sincerely hope you find peace within!!!!

Hey moron, it's not a freedom of speech issue. The point is this asshole spend millions of dollars as a means to legislate what Americans can or can not do based his religious beliefs. We are not living in a theocratic state and no religion or religious person should lobby our representatives to create laws which discriminate against our citizens. Believe whatever you want, say whatever you want, but don't expect everybody else to adhere to your beliefs!

Anonymous,

I am glad to hear you are addressing the real issue. I wish the gay rights groups would do the same. I think because they are not making it clear to the public they have rallied tremendous support for Chick-fil-A. Seems they have turned it into a right to gay marriage issue. They must make it very clear that right to gay marriage is not the important issue here. Most organized religions will oppose this. So I am afraid it will be a failed effort to negatively affect Chick-fil-A.

To the people saying this isn't a freedom of speech issue, don't forget that our friendly neighborhood government ruled that cash money *is* free speech. If a company wants to donate millions and millions of dollars to lobby for anti-gay legislation, they have every right to.

Not saying I agree (I personally find it ridiculous but I don't think the ruling will ever change), but this most definitely is a free speech issue, and Chick-fil-a has every right to it.

All of the supporters of Chick-fil-a just have their heads too far up their asses to realize what they're doing. They think they're just defending the right to free speech, but in doing so they're showing that it's okay to let one man's personal beliefs negatively affect the lives of thousands of people simply because he has lots of money.

Oh, no! One of those "hate" groups is the controversial Fellowship of Christian Athletes. That backwards bunch declares that both homosexual activities and heterosexual sex outside of marriage are offensive to God.

How dare a Christian group advocate Biblical principals...

It's time to start taxing churches; and church affliated organizations. It no longer seems to be 'seperation from church and state'. If church properties were taxed, clergy salary taxed, and the multi-billion dollar church investments were taxed; our national debt would be paid-off several times over.
