Because the media appears to be somewhat lost as to the real issue…
It isn’t about the opinion of 1 mans belief sets; even if they are disgusting.
It is about the fact that they keep saying they aren’t advocating for inequality, while they shovel money off to anti-gay groups.
From Huffington Post and Media Matters:
IRS 990 forms show that WinShape, the restaurant chain’s charitable foundation which was founded by Chick-Fil-A’s chairman S. Truett Cathy in 1994, gave to the following groups in 2009:
- Marriage & Family Legacy Fund: $994,199
- Fellowship Of Christian Athletes: $480,000
- National Christian Foundation: $240,000
- Focus On The Family: $12,500
- Eagle Forum: $5,000
- Exodus International: $1,000
- Family Research Council: $1,000
How is this not advocating?
Now, they have every right to put money in to what ever group they please (thanks SCOTUS) since money is apparently speech. However, they have to understand and accept the fact that people don’t have to spend money there.
I don’t care if you are right, left, or somewhere else; SCOTUS gave these people unlimited strength our only option is to stop allowing our money to be put in to agendas we do not support by no longer buying that product.
