Ending The Boycott of Chick-Fil-A

Posted: 11th September 2014 by admin in END THE BOYCOTT

This site began as one of a small voice in opposition of Chick-Fil-A’s funding of anti-gay, hate groups.  But to what end?  Aren’t boycotts lifted eventually?

After years of boycotting Chick-Fil-A, answering people’s questions about the boycott (because of my bumper sticker), and missing one of my favorite places to eat…I think it’s time to end the boycott of Chick-Fil-A.  Yes, there’s still anger and frustration, but that’s to be expected during the healing process.

The below, according to Wikipedia, is the current status of Chick-Fil-A’s policy changes towards the LGBT community, gay marriage, and gay rights in general.  These changes may not be everything you want them to be, but are certainly the stepping stones to a better relationship with an anti-gay company.  We all have to live together, don’t we?

So…go and get your delicious Chick-Fil-A, waffle fries, and shake.  Now with less hate! :)

 

Policy change

“In September 2012, The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) announced that Chick-fil-A has “ceased donating to organizations that promote discrimination, specifically against LGBT civil rights.” According to the TCRA, Chick-fil-A officials stated in an internal document that they “will treat every person equally, regardless of sexual orientation.”[67] In a letter from Chick-fil-A’s Senior Director of Real Estate, the company states, “The WinShape Foundations 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.”[68]

According to Chicago Alderman Proco “Joe” Moreno, Chick-fil-A has a statement of respect for all sexual orientations in an internal document called Chick-fil-A: Who We Are and has promised that its not-for-profit arm, WinShape, would not contribute money to groups that oppose gay marriage.[69]

According to Focus on the Family web site, CitizenLink.com, “Chick-fil-A and its charitable-giving arm, the WinShape Foundation, did not agree to stop making donations to groups that support the biblical definition of marriage in exchange for being allowed to open a franchise in Chicago.”[70] Mike Huckabee stated that he “talked earlier today personally with Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick Fil-A about the new reports that Chick Fil-A had capitulated to demands of the supporters of same sex marriage. This is not true. The company continues to focus on the fair treatment of all of its customers and employees, but to end confusion gave me this statement.” The statement provided by Chick-fil-A was posted on Huckabee’s website.[71][72]

In March 2014, new tax filings from 2012 showed Chick-fil-A stopped funding all but one organization which had been previously criticized. The company also created a new foundation, the Chick-fil-A Foundation, to fund outside groups. WinShape Foundation’s 2012 tax filings showed funding only for its own programs, a Berry College scholarship fund and Lars WinShape, a home for needy children in Brazil.[2]“

Being funded by Chick-Fil-A helped NOM in their fight against gay marriage, but as history continues to prove…they’ve pretty much lost that battle.  So what does a hate group do?  They find another group to hate.  This time it’s transgendered people (transgendered students in this article).

“Transgender students in California are facing what could be their final obstacle before being granted basic protections in the state’s public schools.”

Boycott Chick-Fil-A until they stop funding anti-gay/hate groups!

Note:  NOM (National Organization For Marriage) is an anti-gay, Chick-Fil-A funded group, who is one of many reasons for the boycott of ChickFilA.

“In an op-ed this week, conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin called on the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) to end its campaign against gay marriage.”

“Steve Lonegan, the Republican candidate running in Wednesday’s special election for the late US Senator Frank Lautenberg’s seat in Congress, is receiving some major eleventh hour support from hard right wing politicians and anti-gay groups in the form of a recent rally organized by the Tea Party. It featured an appearance by former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin and financial support from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM).”

Chick-Fil-A supports NOM.  Don’t spend your money at ChickFila, so your money doesn’t go to support this hate group.  NOM is not the only anti-gay hate group that ChickFilA donates to, btw.

We think the muppets and Jim Henson Company pulled their sponsorship from Chick-Fil-A in a boycott against their anti-gay stance.

Oh, Chick-Fil-A.  Will your idiocy ever stop?  Your judgmental attitudes will be your undoing.  Love your chicken, but I disdain your hate, homophibia, and now…your attacks on a nursing mom.  When your company fails as a result of your behaviors, I will cry tears of sadness and laughter.  More and more, it’s your customers who are even worse.  Boycott ChickFilA!
