Everyone was sure in a hurry to condemn Chick-fil-A without getting the facts. And the fact is that nothing has changed about how Chick-fil-A will run it's business. This was a ginned up controversy, driven by pro-homosexual activists to slander the CEO of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy.
I refrained from posting on this when it first hit the news because it didn't pass the smell test. Not having enough time to dig a bit deeper, I let it go. The link below gives a more detailed description of how this kerfuffle came to be.
But, guess what? The damage has been done. The so-called MSM, as well as many bloggers, both right and left, have spread the disinformation. All anyone will remember is that Chick-fil-A "caved", which is far from the truth.
Trust, but Verify!
Chick-fil-A: Who We Are. A Response to Recent Controversy. (emphasis mine)
For many months now, Chick-fil-A’s corporate giving has been mischaracterized. And while our sincere intent has been to remain out of this political and social debate, events from Chicago this week have once again resulted in questions around our giving. For that reason, we want to provide some context and clarity around who we are, what we believe and our priorities in relation to corporate giving.
A part of our corporate commitment is to be responsible stewards of all that God has entrusted to us. Because of this commitment, Chick-fil-A’s giving heritage is focused on programs that educate youth, strengthen families and enrich marriages, and support communities. We will continue to focus our giving in those areas. Our intent is not to support political or social agendas.
As we have stated, the Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. source
