Chick fil-A, Still Assholes

Since the publicity last year about Chick-fil-A's[1] donations to hate groups[2], I've heard a variety of things about the issue.  Some friends have tried to say "it's just a sandwich".  But enough people stood up to  Chick-fil-A[3] that they promised to stop the donations[4].

Last week, Think Progress reported on their 2011 donations to these ant-gay hate causes[5][6].
In 2011, the group actually gave even more to anti-LGBT causes. Its contribution to the Marriage & Family Foundation jumped to $2,896,438 and it gave the same amount to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and National Christian Foundation as it had in 2010. In total, the anti-LGBT spending exceeded $3.6 million — almost double the $1.9 million from the year before.


In essence, Chick-fil-A’s “charitable” contributions in 2011 were no less hateful than in 2010 — just less transparent.
This spike in donations occurred before the promise for them to cease.  I wish I expected us to see anything different when the information on their 2012 donations comes out.

1.  Chick-fil-A Does Not Want Your Money


  1. What about the GiBLeT hate group that wants to force us to only see thing their way?? They are just as wrong as any one else. This is still America where we can all think and believe as we see fit.

    1. I know of no LGBT group doing any such thing.
