It seems the divide is between groups that are political and those which are not. If I understand their stance correctly, Chic-fil-a has a policy of not giving to any group which is involved in politcal activism. It seems now they are reviewing the groups they have donated to and are going to stop giving to those who are political activists but will continue to give to similar groups that are not political activists.

Still, Chic-fil-a needs to put forth a clear statement on this matter.


The truth be, your for them, or against them, that is you stand on God's Word that being a sodomite is a sin, or you stand against God.

It seems clear to me, he is trying his best to appease both sides for the sake of money. Clearly trying to compromise! Have his cake, with very thick icing spread all over it.

Now, I am not saying for anyone to mistreat them, yet to stand with God they have to know that you know that they're sinning against God & should repent, confess, & change. That will not appease them.

Why would they lie? For the same reason so many do. Repeating it long enough causes people to believe it. I don't know what's going on for sure, but I have my doubts that things are as cut and dried as the original articles made it seem.

I don't see where he's trying to compromise. I posted their recent statement - which is a reiteration of what they've always said, as a corporation. Cathey in no way backed down from his support of true marriage. CFA simply said they would not support political or social agendas. Meaning gay marriage. He participated, personally, in a pro-true marriage event and is being criticized by The Advocate. It isn't any of their business who he helps raise money for.

Tempest in a teacup is what this is. The media blowing something up out of nothing to try and smear Cathey and CFA yet again, IMO.

And from Cathey via Mike Huckabee:

I 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:

“There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect. Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been.”

Huckabee was on O'Reilly tonight and O'Reilly asked him if Chick-fil-A was going to stop giving money to pro traditional marriage groups and Huckabee dodged the question.


That may say loads about the chicken company.

Chick-fil-A CEO Denies Giving 'Concessions' to Open Chicago Restaurant

Chick fil-A has "made no … concessions" regarding its support of groups that oppose gay marriage, company CEO Dan Cathy said in a statement that was posted online by Mike Huckabee, denying a statement by a Chicago alderman that the company said it would reevaluate its policies in the face of a move by city officials to bar Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant there.
"Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been," Cathy said in the statement. "There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect."
Chicago Alderman Proco Joe Moreno told ABC News Wednesday that he had received a letter from Chick-fil-A's senior director of real estate saying the company had decided to re-evaluate the multimillion-dollar donations it gives to anti-gay marriage activists and other groups with "political agendas."
"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," the letter said.
A representative from Chick-fil-A did not return calls made by ABC News by press time to explain the letter.
While the company memo "Chick-fil-A: Who We Are," released last week, does use language quoted by Moreno, the document goes on to reaffirm the company's commitment to funding pro-marriage groups, although the document does not clarify as to which groups.
"Chick-fil-A supports programs and marriage retreats to help strengthen and enrich marriages. More than 4,000 couples benefit annually from these programs, including military personnel and sports coaches that received scholarships." [ Click here to view the entire company document.]
Previously the company's WinShape Foundation gave money to groups like the Family Research Council and the Alliance Defense Fund - donations that rekindled a firestorm among pro-gay groups. The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the Family Research Council as a "hate group," as displayed on the group's "hate map."
Moreno raised the stakes last month when he threatened to block the construction of a Chick -fil-A restaurant, a move that prompted Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to side with Moreno, declaring that "Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago's values."

OK, but last night Huckabee made it sound like that they would only continue to be a pro traditional family business but he dodged the question about whether they would continue to give money.

That's probably why they had to come out with this latest statement. They should have put forth a very clear statement on this matter from the very beginning rather than giving the media and attack dogs openings to shoot.

How much do they give to support the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the missions of Jesus' Churches, go, teach, & baptize, Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you? To the political sodomites, supporting the above would probably be to support a hate group.

Why bother opening a restaurant in Chicago anyway? They hate you and everything you stand for.

The folks where they plan to open want to eat there. Just because corrupt politicians don't like biblical values doesn't mean the people of Chicago care about that when it comes to going out to eat.

Dan Cathy has come out and said they aren't changing. That should actually be the end of questions about it. As to giving to propagate the gospel, I'm sure they do that. As Jerry8 said, that would be labeled hate giving, for sure.

There has been nothing in the Chicago Tribune about this kerfuffle - until this morning, when a small snapshot of Moreno had the caption that he was backing off CFA opening there. Nothing about a letter or anything. I still think it was a tempest in a teapot, cooked up by gay groups trying to get people angry at CFA.

Merry Christmas to Chick-fil-A! My wife have had many pleasant meals at Chick-fil-A and spend around $10 a week.  From today forward, we are going to fast once a week instead of going to Chick-fil-A and give the $10 a week to the Salvation Army in addition to the normal contribution we make to this outstanding Christian Charity.

Why would you give money to a group that is not biblical, when you could give some money to a missionary that your church supports or knows, and then you know that the money will go to the furtherance of the Gospel, and not into some organisation which will eat half of it up for the running of their "business"?

I know that the church I go to has a separate "missions giving account" and every single dollar that is given for missions goes the missionaries who are out there preaching the Gospel and seeing people saved: not one cent of it goes to admin and running costs of this church - that is taken care of from the general offerings (and ONLY from the general offerings).

Salvation Army do a lot of good stuff, but they are not God's organisation, the local church, which God commissioned to do the work of the Great Commission.
