Chick-Fil-A to Stop Donations to Anti-LGBT Groups
Months after Dan Cathy's comments on gay marriage
The conservative fried chicken restaurant chain Chick-fil-A has agreed to stop funding groups opposing rights for LGBT people, some of which have been labeled as hate groups.
A press release from The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) said that Chick-fil-A had confirmed to Chicago Alderman Proco "Joe" Moreno that its nonprofit, the WinShape Foundation, would no longer donate money to anti-LGBT organizations.
"The WinShape Foundations [sic] 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 stated.
