The mask comes off: Chick-fil-A donates to anti-Christian, pro-abort, LGBT organizations

About two weeks ago on November 18, 2019, acceding to pressure from LGBTs, Chick-fil-A announced they will no-longer be making donations to Christian groups, such as The Fellowship of Christian Athletes and The Salvation Army.

See Dave’s post “Chick-fil-A Stabs Supporters Squarely in the Back

In explaining Chick-fil-A’s funding decisions, Rodney Bullard, VP of Corporate Responsibility and Executive Director of the Chick-fil-A Foundation said future donations would go to charities in support of education, the homeless and ending hunger because “We don’t want our intent and our work to be encumbered by someone else’s politics or cultural war. If something gets in the way of our mission, that is something that we are mindful of and cognizant of.”

But Salvation Army points out in a press release that it makes no sense for Chick-fil-A to divert funding from the Salvation Army (SA) to hunger, education and homeless organizations because the SA does all three on a massive scale, except the SA doesn’t espouse an LGBT ideology.

Now comes news that Chick-fil-A is sending a $2,500 donation to the anti-Christian and far-left Southern Poverty Law Center and with that, the transmorgrification of Chick-fil-A into an enemy of Christians and of the Right is complete.

Cal Thomas reports for LifeNews.com, Dec. 3, 2019, that conservatives and evangelical Christians had regarded Chick-fil-A as a model company because its founder, the late S. Truett Cathy, ordered that his restaurants be closed on Sundays to allow employees to attend church and spend time with their families. Chick-fil-A also donated to charities that supported the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman, which enraged the Left. LGBT activists declared a boycott of the restaurants which was countered by supporters of Chick-fil-A who showed up en masse to dine in the restaurant chain.

Without any noticeable new pressure, Chick-fil-A suddenly announced it would no longer be donating to Christian charities like The Salvation Army, an organization not known for political activism. Then the restaurant chain announced it is sending a $2,500 donation to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-wing organization that lists some Christian ministries as “hate groups,” including the pro-life Family Research Council (FRC).

FRC President Tony Perkins is calling on conservatives to seek a fast-food alternative because “Not only has Chick-fil-A abandoned donations to Christian groups, including the Salvation Army, it has donated to one of the most extreme anti-Christian groups in America” — the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

It turns out the SPLC isn’t the only left-wing organization to which Chick-fil-A donates.

A Nov. 26, 2019 report by Ryan Bromberger for LifeNews.com lists these other recipients of Chick-fil-A’s largesse:

  1. YWCA, the deeply political, radically pro-abortion and pro-LGBTQ organization that repeatedly partners with Planned Parenthood.
  2. The DC-based New Leadership Council that describes itself as a “hub of progressive millennial thought leadership” to “support one another along their individual path to a more progressive political and cultural landscape.”
  3. Chick-fil-A donated $50,000 to The Pace Center for Girls, a pro-abort education and advocacy group that featured feminist Gloria Steinem as their keynote speaker for their most recent girls’ Summit.
  4. In 2017, Chick-fil-A donated $38,700 to Usher’s New Look, R&B star Usher Raymond IV’s liberal non-profit that hosted a Disruptivator Summit on organizing the Left for pivotal social issues.
  5. Chick-fil-A gave $27,500 in 2017 and $25,000 in 2019 to Chris 180, a pro-LGBT behavioral health and child welfare service agency that received an award from the the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) — the multi-million dollar LGBT powerhouse that recently pushed for the legalization of prostitution in DC.
  6. Chick-fil-A donates hundreds of thousands a year to Junior Achievement, which in 2016, joined a coalition (Georgia Prospers) of pro-LGBT businesses in a campaign (“Too Busy to Hate”) to politically oppose the religious liberty First Amendment Defense Act from passing in Georgia.

These groups, and many more funded by Chick-fil-A, are clearly political and liberal. So much for “not being encumbered by someone else’s politics or cultural war.”

Triggered: Oregon high school stages walk out due to offensive language & Chick-fil-A food truck

If you are a Christian and don’t believe in homosexual marriage you WILL be punished. Punished for hurting the feelings of those who don’t feel safe with your beliefs.

In West Linn, Oregon (just south of Portland), students staged a walkout because of what they believe is damaging actions/beliefs and they just want to feel safe. They claim there’s been a rise in “transphobic” language, bullying and that a transgender student had his/her/it (I’m unsure of their preferred pronoun) car vandalized.

Then there’s another HORROR: There’s been a Chick-fil-A food cart at home football games. That will soon come to an end because yummy chicken sandwiches are triggering.

Read the whole story here or watch below.

Kids today are so fragile. Better grow up fast young ones because the REAL WORLD doesn’t offer safe spaces for your precious feelings.

The tolerant left: Landlord will not renew lease of Chick-Fil-A’s first UK restaurant

Chick-Fil-A (CFA) just opened up their first restaurant in the UK in Reading (about an hour outside of London.)

The tolerant left protested because of their bigotry against the religious beliefs of the CEO, Dan Cathy.

MyFoxChicago reports the store opened on October 10th. LGBT protestors immediately showed up and convinced the landlord to not renew their lease after it expires in six months.

From the article: “A mall spokesperson said concerns raised by activists about the chain have made them determine “the right thing to do” is not to extend the restaurant’s lease beyond the “six-month pilot period,” according to reports by BBC.”

Read the whole story here.

Progressives’ hate and determination to smear CFA was evidenced on Twitter last week when a libtard spread an outright lie on Twitter. A tweet was made viral that claimed the following:

As Daily Caller noted, “Fact-checking website Snopes butchered its fact check of a viral but false tweet linking Chick-fil-A to anti-gay legislation in Uganda.”

The truth didn’t stop the tweet from receiving more than 57,000 thousand retweets and 118,000 thousand likes on Twitter.

Daily Caller reported the following: Chick-fil-A has not supported legislative campaigns of any kind in Uganda,” a Chick-Fil-A spokesman told the Washington Examiner’s Brad Polumbo, who criticized Snopes in a column Wednesday.”

Read the whole CFA/Uganda smear tactic here.

That’s typical of the left – just following the Commie playbook.

Every time the progressives try to bash CFA we always go there to support them. We’ll be making another visit to CFA this Saturday for lunch!

High school declines free Chick-fil-A lunch because of their LGBT views

Stories like this just prompt us to visit CFA, which we’ll be doing today for lunch.

From Fox News: The principal of a New Orleans high school said his staffers have no desire to “eat mor chikin,” as the administrator turned down a free lunch for teachers catered by Chick-fil-A over what he alleges are the company’s “views” toward the LGBTQ community.

On Oct. 10, Steven Corbett, principal of Lusher High School, said that he had recently declined a free lunch from the chicken-centric chain for his employees, provided through the College Football Playoff Foundation (CFPF), explaining that the restaurant’s values do not align with those of the school.

“Out of respect to our LGBTQ staff, we have chosen to not serve Chick-fil-A at an employee lunch. The #1 rule at Lusher is to ‘Be Kind’ and we live this motto every day,” Corbett told WWL-TV. “Chick-fil-A has been politically outspoken about its views, and we feel it is not part of Lusher’s culture of kindness and community.”

“Anytime an organization is anti-LGBTQ, and has efforts to infringe upon their rights, we thought it was important to support and stand up for their community at this time,” the principal told WDSU, doubling down on his argument.

The catered lunch was reportedly scheduled to take place on Friday, according to WWL-TV.

In response, a spokesperson for the CFPF said that the organization understood, and that teachers at the charter school would receive a meal from another restaurant. “[We are just] glad teachers will have a good lunch tomorrow,” spokesperson Tony Fay said.

Fay added that the teacher’s lunch for Lusher High School staff is one of “several” initiatives the CFPF is launching to thank the New Orleans community for hosting the Sugar Bowl and College Football Championship in 2020.

Kansas University faculty wants Chick-fil-A banned from campus to protect students’ mental well being

If your “mental well being” is offended by a chicken sandwich I suggest you aren’t all that stable to begin with.

From MSN: “KU granted Chick-fil-A, a bastion of bigotry, a prime retail location in the heart of our campus,” the university’s Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council wrote in a letter to the school’s chancellor and other university leaders.

“Moving Chick-fil-A to the Union and granting it a role at the start of all home football games violates the feelings of safety and inclusion that so many of us have striven to create, foster, and protect on campus, and sends a message that the Union, KU Athletics, and the administration at large are more concerned about money and corporate sponsorship than the physical, emotional, and mental well being of marginalized and LGBTQ people,” they added.

The University of Kansas this year moved the restaurant chain’s location from a basement to a prominent spot in the student union, according to the Kansas City Star.

The school also negotiated a deal for a “Chick-fil-A Coin Toss” at the start of every home football game.

The restaurant chain has been a target of protesters in various parts of the U.S. for its connection to anti-gay groups.

The KU council highlighted Chick-fil-A’s owner’s “history of supporting organizations that are hostile to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people, families, and communities.”

“The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels. In short, Chick-fil-A on KU’s campus stands in direct contrast to the university’s mission of fostering a multicultural, inclusive environment,” they added.

Chick-fil-A and KU’s chancellor did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Chick-fil-A manager helps upset WWII vet change his flat tire

While the left hate on Chick-fil-A, their employees never cease to provide excellent customer service.

From Daily Mail: A manager of a Maryland Chick-fil-A has proved he’s willing to go above and beyond for his customers, even helping one elderly patron in the most unlikely of ways.

Daryl Howard, 29, was working at the franchise in Severn on Thursday when a regular customer by the name of Mr. Lee walked in and asked for assistance after his car sustained a flat tire.

Lee, a 96-year-old World War II veteran, visits regularly for a chicken biscuit and a coffee – but on this occasion he was in much more distress after barely making it to the restaurant.

‘He was shaking, almost in tears,’ another manager by the name of Rudy Somoza told CNN.

Howard was only too happy to help his elderly client change the tire, telling Somoza to tend to the tills while he went outside to the parking lot.

‘He jumped into action without hesitation,’ Somoza explained.

As Howard changed the car tire, Somoza snapped a picture and posted it online – with no idea that it would soon go viral.

The image – which shows Howard bending down near the vehicle as the elderly Lee watches on – has heartened social media users. ‘Let’s highlight the awesome people in society!’ one wrote on Facebook, seemingly sick of relentless bad news.

‘Chick-fil-A has some pretty awesome employees!’ cooed another admirer of the image.

Somoza says the selfless act wasn’t out of character for Howard – whom he has known for five years.

‘His act of kindness was beautiful. He has always been so helpful to anyone in need and deserves this recognition,’ Somoza stated.

Meanwhile, Mr. Lee returned to the restaurant on Friday to pick up a coffee – and to say thank you again to Howard for his help.

So much for libs’ boycott: Chick-fil-A named America’s favorite restaurant chain for fourth year running

From NY Post: Once again, Chick-fil-A has been named America’s favorite restaurant based on customer satisfaction.

For the fourth year in a row, the fast-food chain topped the American Customer Satisfaction Index for limited-service restaurant chains. The index is based on results from nearly 23,000 consumers.

Chick-fil-A scored an 86 on the ASCI’s 100-point scale, which is down one point from last year, Forbes reports. For comparison, McDonald’s scored a 69, Burger King a 76 and KFC a 78. Taco Bell scored a 75.
Meanwhile, in regard to pizza places, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s both scored 80 points, with Domino’s at 79 and Little Caesars at just 77.

Chick-fil-A’s high ranking can be attributed to several factors, including the company’s famous customer service training. Business Insider reports that the restaurant was named America’s most polite chain in QSR Magazine’s annual report.

This isn’t the only piece of good news for Chick-fil-A. The chain is expected to become the third bestseller fast-food chain in America, Fox 5 reports. It’s expected to jump past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, based on a study conducted by Kalinowski Equity Research.

Making this an even more impressive feat is the fact that Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, while almost all of its competition is open seven days a week.

What happens when liberals call for a boycott of a fast-food chain…

Not every restaurant is seeing sales moving accordingly with its customer satisfaction score. Forbes reports that McDonald’s, which has a relatively low score in comparison, has reportedly had a strong performance this year. Meanwhile, Papa John’s high score has surprisingly coincided with a drop in sales.

Cal Poly SLO faculty move to get 25-year-old Chick-Fil-A removed

What happens when liberals call for a boycott of a fast-food chain…

Guess where we will now plan to go for dinner on Saturday night…

From SF Gate: Fast food restaurant Chick-Fil-A may soon be kicked off campus at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, if a push by the school’s academic senate to get the chain franchise removed is underscored by university President Jeffrey Armstrong.

Faculty that make up the campus organization point to Chick-Fil-A Foundation’s history of donating to anti-LGBT causes, noting that its values are not consistent with those of the university.

In a vote Tuesday, the vast majority of the academic senate (38 out of 44) opted to recommend getting rid of the chicken chain’s location despite its 25-year tenure on campus.

“We don’t sell pornography in the bookstore and we don’t have a Hooters on campus — we already pre-select those kind of things based on our existing values,” said academic senate Vice Chair Thomas Gutierrez to the on-campus publication Mustang News. “This is a similar thing, the difference is we’re actually profiting from this. So our money, every dollar a student is spending at Chick-Fil-A, is going to these causes that are in violation of our values.”

In response, university spokesman Matt Lazier released two statements. One voiced a hesitation to “censor” a business because of different viewpoints, as KSBY reports. In a subsequent comment, Lazier stated that the school aims to be inclusive above all else:

“While university administration passionately disagrees with the values of some of the organizations the president of Chick-fil-A has chosen to make personal donations to, we do not believe in responding to intolerance with intolerance,” he told KSBY. “Rather, we must model our values of inclusion – that means upholding the rights of others to have different perspectives and ensuring there is space in our community for differing viewpoints and ideologies, even those that may be in direct conflict with our own.”

If the university does wind up deciding to remove the restaurant, it would need to curtail a five-year contract extension on the location, signed in 2018.

It would likely be expensive to terminate the contract, but the academic senate hopes that the university will see that “(business) partners are held to the same high diversity and inclusion standards of as the rest of the campus community.”

It’s not the first time this Chick-Fil-A location has sparked a debate. In 2012, about 50 protesters held a national “Kiss-In” at the Cal Poly franchise — the only one in San Luis Obispo County — to protest the company president’s anti-LGBT comments.

In the Bay Area, local city officials are similarly attempting to navigate what to do about Chick-Fil-A stores. In April, San Jose politicians openly considered ways to make a planned San Jose Airport Chick-Fil-A the “gayest in the country.”
