Chick-fil-A Lurches Further Left

Well, I wrote about Chick-fil-A a few days, and it just got worse. As I stated, this is what happens when the kids take over a company their Father built in his image. And this case, an image of family and Christian values. Oh the horror! I couldn’t be more disappointed in CEO Dan Cathy and the recently acquired wayward vision of his father’s restaurant chain. And to give a nickel to the Southern Poverty Law Center is 5 cents too many.

from the Daily Signal:

Chick-Fil-A Donated to Southern Poverty Law Center, Others on Left

Chick-fil-A, which has promoted itself as a Christian business, is now under fire from both sides of the aisle for its charitable giving strategy. Pictured: Demonstrators protest outside a Chick-fil-A restaurant in California on Aug. 1, 2012. (Photo: Tibrina Hobson/Getty Images)

 

Chick-fil-A donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center and other left-wing organizations that promote abortion and LGBT rights, issues that run counter to the fast-food chain’s image as a Christian conservative business.

According to public tax documents first reported Tuesday by Townhall, Chick-fil-A donated $2,500 to the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2017 despite the organization’s history of hostility toward conservative causes.

The old saying used to be: “You are what you eat.” Now it’s, “You are what you serve – Chicken.”

Anyway you slice it, Chick-fil-A “chickened” out. Despite all the support we have given them, they just caved to the cancel culture, identity politics mob, which is a tiny fraction of actual people, compared to those have stood up and bravely supported Chick-fil-A for its courage.

Bisnow reported that Chick-fil-A will no longer be giving to Christian charities – those who don’t happen to tow the LGBT line. Oh the horror!

I’ve seen a few conservatives write that they have not in fact caved to the “shut-um-down” mob, but in my opinion they have, and it’s a damn shame, and completely unnecessary.

What has happened to the restaurant chain since the original dustup over Chick-fil-A president, S Truett Cathy’s pronouncement of his PERSONAL Christian view? Did the brand suffer? Not hardly. They went from a distant 7th largest fast food chain, passing over many heavy-hitters, to vault into third place, behind only behemoths, McDonalds and Starbucks. And that’s being open only six days out of the week. They’re closed on Sunday. What religious zealots – right? read more
