In a surreptitious announcement today a policy of ensuring donations to not go to groups that create political backlash for the company.
A Chick-fil-A executive confirmed that the company will stop donating to groups like Focus on the Family and the National Organization for Marriage, according to The Civil Rights Agenda, a Chicago-based gay-rights organization.
The groups, which got millions of dollars from Chick-fil-A over the last few years, fight the legalization of gay marriage. But some go even further: opposing adoption by gay couples, advertising “conversion therapy” to turn gays straight, and even endorsing criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior.
In a letter to Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno, a Chick-fil-A executive said the company “is now taking a much closer look at the organizations it considers helping, and in that process will remain true to its stated philosophy of not supporting organizations with political agendas.”
I'm so glad they were able to extract that nice little bonus cash from the right wingers upholding their "values" of intolerance, hate, and murder.
