Chick-fil-A To Stop Donating To Christian Charities Branded ‘Anti-LGBT’

…Tim Tassopoulos announced that the famous fried chicken chain plans to make significant changes in which charities it donates to, in part because “as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are.” Amid continued boycotts of the highly popular and successful chain over its donations to supposed “anti-LGBT” groups and causes, Tassopoulos revealed that the company’s foundation will no longer donate to some high-profile Christian organizations.

“As Chick-fil-A expands globally and into more liberal parts of the U.S., the chicken chain plans to change which charities it donates to after years of bad press and protests from the LGBT community,” Bisnow reported Monday. “Beginning next year, Chick-fil-A will move away from its current philanthropic structure, Bisnow has learned. After donating to more than 300 charitable organizations this year, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain will instead focus on three initiatives with one accompanying charity each: education, homelessness and hunger. ”

“There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” Tassopoulos told Bisnow. “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”

With its new, more narrowed approach to charitable donations, the company’s charitable actions “will no longer include donating to organizations like the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Paul Anderson Youth Home,” Bisnow reports.

Those three organizations, Bisnow underscores, have inspired claims of an “anti-LGBT” agenda supposedly being promoted by Chick-fil-A. Under pressure from LGBT activists earlier this year, Chick-fil-A felt compelled to defend its donations specifically to those three organizations (see statement below).

  1. Figures, the old man dies and wimpering fairies take the helm.
    Did they add a fudge dessert on the menu too?

    I’ll be curious to see how much business this costs them.

  2. I like Chick-fil-A and don’t want to criticize, but they have had an inconsistency for quite a while. On the one hand, I’ve heard/read CfA spokesmen say that it is wrong to badmouth the company for personal comments made by one of the founders/owners, and that those comments do not apply to the corporation. On the other hand, CfA’s philanthropic arm, a corporate function, has been supporting organizations opposed to the GBLTs and the perversion of marriage.

    I see this announcement as a reasonable attempt to reconcile the inconsistency. It’s not as though there aren’t many, many worthy charities that don’t focus on deviant marriage.

  3. They’ve been dropping Christian charities for a while now. I’m still waiting to hear why the charities they dropped are considered anti-lgbt. Well, the libs consider chick fil a anti lgbt no matter what they do, are they going to shut themselves down, too?

    Listen, the left doesn’t care, whatever faith based / non faith based smaller charity CFA supports next year is going to be destroyed by accusations, too. Simply because it’s CFA supporting them. No matter how much you apologize for any real or phony offense they feel, the left will always hate you.
    Why don’t Christians ever learn this???

  4. They’re trying to draw the heat off themselves but it’ll never moderate until they as a corporation are destroyed.

    Corporate cowardice is ubiquitous.

  5. “There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,”

    Dude. You make a chicken sandwich. Go to hell.

  6. Somewhat related (and I was hoping a post on this would have gone up by now)there was some dopey British singer who was supposed to sing at the Thanksgiving NFL halftime show, which has always been sponsored by the Salvation Army. Last week she made a public statement that if the SA did not make a “sizable” donation to the LGBTQ community, that she would cancel and not appear. The SA countered with, “We help ALL people in need”.

    The SA gets the lion’s share of my end of year donations so I was really interested to see if they caved. The last word I could find was that she would, in fact, appear, with no mention of extra cash going to her gay buddies.

    This stuff really pisses me off, this, “We are special and deserve special treatment, and if you don’t acknowledge our “speciality” in public then we will destroy you”.

    I’m going to investigate further before I eighty-six Chick-fil-A.

  7. How is a charitable organization that doesn’t support LGBT considered anti-LGBT?

    Just as if I don’t agree with gay marriage I’m labeled a homophobe, and somehow my disagreement equates to me being irrationally afraid of fags.

    Does not compute.

  8. That’s messed up. I didn’t eat at their restaurant because I thought their food was so outstanding. I did it because it pissed off all the people who hate me, anyway.

    It is better to be despised by the despicable, than admired by the admirable.

  9. Good v. Evil.
    Choose.

    Perversion isn’t “just different” it is EVIL.
    Murdering your children is EVIL.
    Murdering other peoples’ children is EVIL.
    Perverting children is EVIL.
    (children are just the most vulnerable humans, this is not a “fo da l’il chillens” screed)
    Turning your back on God is EVIL (by definition).

    Corporate “charity” is nothing but a tax-evasion scam that denies the stockholders their deductions and contributes enormous amounts to groups approved by the FedGov (which means, literally, socialist groups politically connected to certain politicians and their cronies).

    I have never eaten Chick-fil-A because there’s none here.
    They are a corporation – it is their business to maximize profits – to maximize the value of their shares for their stockholders.

    One must live in the milieu in which one exists.

  10. Chick is like NASCAR. They were built on Conservative support and then decide they’ll slap Conservatives in the face. I hope they remember that the Right aren’t as fickle as the Left. Once we’re gone…we aren’t coming back.

  11. Very sad to see Chick-fil-a backslide from its biblically foundational principals. If they continue to bow down to a LGBTETC sodomite agenda, they will no long be favored by God and cease to exist. Repent Chick-fil-a corp execs. before it’s too late – not kidding.

  12. Salvation Army. They are dropping Salvation Army, and it’s because SPLC says they are bad and for no other reason. They are letting SPLC dictate their values. That is what ticks me off.

    26
  13. if they truly go Corporate Amerika, then there will be no reason for me to give them my business. I can go top Popeye’s and get a better chicken sandwich AND a shitload of other coronary-inducing foodstuffs.

  14. It won’t matter libtards on city councils will still try to keep them out of airports etc, What next they donate to planned parenthood and hoist rainbow flags over their stores?! Guess that leaves In & Out that has taken the opposite track and doubled down on their Christianity.

  15. 99,

    Love you dearly but God isn’t favoring one chicken restaurant over the others. It’s a business like any other, run by sinning humans, for sinning humans. As with the U S., the founding ideals were fantastic but decline was inevitable.

  16. I’m betting that in 48 hours this will turn out to be mis-quoted, or purely fabricated bullshit. NEVER trust fresh news.

  17. How so does this *really* fatten their bottom line?
    Do they think any Leftist homos will start going to Chick-fil-A, now?!

    NEVER bow to the fascist outrage mob.

  18. And now God will remove his blessings from Chicken filet. It is a fact that God rewards the faithful. If you don’t believe that, then you don’t believe the bible. Watch – this is the beginning of the end for them

  19. I’m a Georgia boy; born and raised in Georgia. I was born the year the first store opened and I’ve been a fan of Chik-Fil-A all my life. Suddenly that has come to an end.

    I and my family will no longer support C-F-A now that they’ve abandoned The Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

    As far as I’m concerned, Chik-Fil-A has just turned Chik-N-shit.

  20. Recipe for delish chikin samwidges.

    crushed pork rinds
    Butter milk mixed with Texas Pete’s hot sauce
    Slap Ya Mama
    Boneless, skinless chicken thighs….or if you can wield a boning knife, boneless, skin on chicken thighs.
    bacon grease
    Martins Potato Roll Burger Buns, grilled in Danish butter, because, why not.
    Mayo, mixed with hot sauce
    Dill pickle slices

    Soak the critter in buttermilk, hot sauce, and Slap Ya Mama overnight.
    Dredge and humiliate the victim in fried and crushed skins of hapless swine. Allow a half hour for the unfortunate couple to get to regret knowing one another. Then fry the body parts in really hot bacon grease. This is a shallow and meaningless frying method, which will add much flavor and fatness.
    When they are cooked to your liking, remove the crunchy little chicken bodies on the buttered, grilled buns, smeared with hot sauce mayo….otherwise known as YumYum sauce and enough pickles to mitigate the heat of sad but tasty chicken.

  22. “And now God will remove his blessings from Chicken filet.”

    Wrong.

    God doesn’t play favorites since He cut off Israel’s Only Favored Nation status for her unrepentant blindness 2,ooo years ago.

    Both Peter and Paul assure us that now “there is NO respect of persons with God” (Acts 10:34; Romans 2:11). That destroys the false premise that CFA is somehow holy ground and the waffle fries are sanctified.

    It’s just a sandwich created and marketed by a man who happened to be a Christian.

  23. I don’t know about the other two, but dumping
    the Salvation Army is like kicking Santa Claus
    in the head.
    NOT GOOD!

  24. Another corporation has lost its courage. There is nothing holy to them but dollars.

    No backbone, no guts, no balls. They’ll all go down, so to speak, eventually.

    My wife loves the stuff, so I suppose I will still have to take her there, but I’m not buying.

  25. AS USUAL, when they start losing a ton of money because they angered Conservative Christians, likely they will learn nothing from it.

  26. @John, I am with you on this. The Salvation Army is a TERRIFIC Christian charitable organization. VERY little goes towards admin, and most $$ goes to those in need.

    This stinks for a very worthwhile organization and it aggravates me to no end that Chick Fil A caved to a cabal that won’t give them any quarter as a result of their caving. Dumb, dumb, DUMB.

  27. “Maybe now Chick-fil-A will open on Sundays?”

    Now that’s a thought.

    No way I’m the first to think of it, but I once thought of a headline for Babylon Bee:

    “Leftists sue Chick-fil-A to stop discriminating against non-Christians by opening on Sundays, so they can protest 7 days a week.”

  28. When non-Christians, and even atheists, know this is unacceptable hypocrisy–denying of Jesus by His own followers. Can’t serve two masters — either God or money, but not both.

    BACKLASH: Chick-Fil-A Faces Heat For Caving To Leftists, Cutting Ties With Christian Orgs
    By Ryan Saavedra
    DailyWire.com
    “Here are just some of the reactions Chick-fil-A received from the political Right:

    Dana Loesch: “Did Chick-Fil-A bend the knee to the mob? In their statement Chick-fil-A said they are going to now donate to charities that focus on ‘education, homelessness and hunger.’ That’s literally what the Salvation Army does. Fellowship of Christian Athletes? A group that facilities fellowship of faithful high schoolers and encourages embracing Christ’s top command to love one another? So bad to encourage those values today, apparently.””

  29. We were JUST driving down I-91 through CT south of Hartford this past weekend and I saw a billboard for Chic and I asked the crew, with interest, if ‘anyone had tried yet?’ All three said no.

    Now, in hindsight of this news? We’ll NEVER go. There are just too many choices and good diners on the road. They find Salvation Army too toxic??? Salavation Army will be here long after the self emulsion of Chic a Full of Themselves.

    As a matter of fact we stopped at the Cromwell (CT) Diner, exit 21, to get food re-fueled, oh and the gas at Mobil was too expensive at 3.09/gal.

  30. I’ve never been the biggest fan of chik-fil-A as far as their food goes, even before the left started hating them. For a long time the nearest one to me was an hour away and I would eat at if I was with someone in that area that wanted to eat there.
    Then they opened one in a town near me and the only reason I ate at it as often as I did, was because I would see another group attacking them for something and it would piss me off, so I’d go get food from them.

    I don’t even have a problem with who they donate to or who they don’t donate to, it’s the fact they had to make a big deal about not donating to someone and in turn insinuated those people are bad people.

    I’m sure like the rest of you I can’t count how many times conservatives and Christians have said go eat at Chik-fil-A and show them we appreciate them after some idiot or idiots attacked them. So this is almost like a slap in the face to all those people who were responsible for those cars waiting in line for hours.
    I also know many people like myself who have said there are fast food joints with better food, but I support what they stand for and we have to stand up for businesses who stand up for Christian values, because there are so few of them.

    A very bad move for them, they would have been a lot smarter to just donated their money to whomever they wanted and said nothing about it.

  31. I already donate to the Salvation Army; now in addition I will also donate the amount I would have spent at C-F-A to the SA.

  32. grool , I love you too, brother.
    However, your doctrine concerning whether or not God’s favor exist or not is incorrect – it absolutely does exist!
    In fact, Deuteronomy is all about nostril burning sinners of Israel, (before the saving grace and sacrifice of Christ), God’s favor was given based on obedience. Disobedience caused immediate consequences.

    The following scripture proves God will favor one person over another based on just His sovereignty; See Romans 9:10-16 NT
    Also, you’ll have to explain this scripture as well; James 4:10 NT. “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.”

    Chick-fil-a’s founder understood these scripture principles of God’s favor very well. He dedicated hos business to God and his business saw exceptional profits, despite being closed on Sundays.
    His desendent like the sons of Eli, do not get it. Spiritually, Chick-fil-a is on life support, because for now, God is honoring the founder’s faithfullness, but that will end with continual worship of sodomy by Chick-fil-a corp execs.

  33. They should donate all of their profits for the next five years to LGBT organizations and maybe we’ll think about not shutting them down.

  34. Haven’t these corporations realized why the saying “Get woke, go broke” is true yet? If this is true, then not only will I never visit another CFA, but they will be in a downward spiral within a year.

  35. I predict this will be a Dick’s-level deal with the Devil.
    Other places make great chicken sandwiches, including my grill at home.

  36. Maybe I’ll start the “Dick-fill-Ass” restaurant chain!
    (when I get this presidential-run scam out of the way – shit – I’ll have plenty of money)
