Thank Chick-fil-A for Continuing to Stand Strong
The end of last week liberal and pro-homosexual media erupted with the news the Chick-fil-A had reached an agreement with Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno and would cease donating to pro-family groups in exchange for permission to open a Chick-fil-A in Moreno’s district. Their “celebration” was short-lived when the truth finally made it to the media and Chick-fil-A indicated there was no change in policy.
Throughout the attacks on Chick-fil-A, homosexual organizations have claimed the company has donated millions to “anti-gay” groups. But what do their 990’s show?
In 2009, they gave donations of $1,733,699. Of this, $19,500 (about 1.1%) went to groups that might be called “political” or “anti-gay” (Focus on the Family, $12,500; Eagle Forum, $5,000; Exodus International, $1,000; Family Research Council, $1,000).
In 2010, they gave donations of $1,974,380. Of this, only $4,500 (about 0.2%) went to “anti-gay” or “political” groups (Exodus International, $1,000; Family Research Council, $1,000; Georgia Family Council, $2,500).
Add these together, and over a two-year period you have total donations of $3,708,079–of which only $24,000 (0.6%) went to arguably “anti-gay” or “political” groups.
Contact Chick-fil-A and thank them for the clarification on their policy and for their continued strong stand for the family and support for “programs that educate youth, strengthen families and enrich marriages, and support communities.”
