Fast-Food Giant Donates to Various Anti-LGBTQ Organizations

May 10th, 2019

Chick-fil-A’s CEO has frequently drawn negative press while expressing views on traditional family values. The fast-food giant has been subjected to boycotts, been banned from college campuses, and has seen countless petitions and media slander in the past.

According to ThinkProgress, Chick-fil-A donated more than $1.8 million to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Salvation Army, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home, all of which display anti-LGBTQ discrimination. A Chick-fil-A spokesperson claimed that none of the organizations were selected for their political or social messages, but for their services to the youth and education. The donations come after the company offered a formal apology in 2012. As part of their apology, the company claimed that they would leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.

The International Development Council president reportedly stated that Chick-fil-A claimed they would cease donating to offensive groups, except the Salvation Army, after 2016. Not only was that suggestion not met, donations to such organizations have increased. These actions have prompted various Chick-fil-A restaurant removals, including one at an airport terminal in San Antonio, Texas.
