Chick-Fil-A's Busted! They have given Anti-Gay groups over a Million dollars in support

Chick-Fil-A, goddammit! Your chicken sandwiches are good, but your practices are horrid. Equality Matters (They actually do something!) busted them on their support to anti-gay organizations.
In fact, the company has strong, deep ties to anti-gay organizations like Focus on the Family and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and its charitable division has provided more than $1.1 million to organizations that deliver anti-LGBT messages and promote egregious practices like reparative therapy that seek to "free" people of being gay. 

The matter grabbed headlines in January after a Pennsylvania Chick-fil-A restaurant sponsored a "traditional marriage" event by providing food to attendees of "The Art of Marriage: Getting to the Heart of God's Design." Cathy dismissed the controversy as a localized incident that was not indicative of the company's corporate culture. "In recent weeks, we have been accused of being anti-gay," Cathy said in a written statement. "We have no agenda against anyone. While my family and I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, we love and respect anyone who disagrees."
Here's a breakdown from the charity division, Winshape.
  • 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
Shame Chick-Fil-A, shame! I'm sticking to KFC

I've never been to Chick-Fil-A and I never will.
