Chick-fil-a Donated Nearly $2 million to Anti-Gay Groups in 2009

Chick-fil-a’s 2009 IRS forms have recently come under public scrutiny as EqualityMatters.org outed them for donating to anti-gay organizations. These organizations include the Marriage and Family Legacy Fund, Focus on the Family and other “family-values” organizations (read: anti-gay marriage).  These forms are the most recent to be made publicly available.

The LGBTQ community and their many, many allies have expressed enormous outrage since the news broke. Protests and boycotts of Chick-fil-a restaurants are taking place across the country.

Will you be refraining from eating at Chick-fil-a because of this news? What role do you think consumers should play when an organization voices an unpopular or controversial opinion?

  1. The only thing I ever eat there is the ice cream, but Geez- one minute you’re eating ice cream and the next you’re supporting hate groups. I won’t eat there anymore and I’ll be tweeting to others not to as well. Thanks for the post!
