    People really dig the grub at Chick-fil-A but you know what the folks that run Chick-fil-A (or at the very least its philanthropic arm) don't dig? The gays. Not exactly shocking taking into consideration the chain's spiritual ties, yet the amount of cash it offers to homophobic groups should raise a couple of brows. It had actually formerly been found that the chain gave greater than $1.1 million to anti-LGBT groups in between 2003 as well as 2008, today it ends up that in 2009, the most current year in which the firm's IRS 990 kinds are readily available [PDF], it gave almost 2 million even more. Still yearning that Chick-fil-A Deluxe Chicken sandwich?

    Equality Matters has the full failure of the groups that Chick-fil-A's philanthropic arm, WinShape (created by Chick-fil-An owner and chairman S. Truett Cathy in 1984), offered money to and exactly how those groups are functioning to injure gay rights. Inquired about the contributions previously this year, Cathy said, \"We're not anti-anybody. Our mission is to create going crazy followers.\" Yet if you are simply searching for names and also numbers, these are the primary donations from 2009 that might piss individuals off:

    So, yeah, that's $1,733,699 to teams with anti-LGBT affiliations (yes that Exodus International is that Exodus International) out of a total of $2,678,985 in payments WinShare made that year. An additional intriguing point in WinShape's 2009 filing? In 2009 the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce shows up to have added $416,724 to the Structure, the 3rd largest contribution behind Chick-fil-A ($ 7,814,788) as well as the company's Delaware-based real estate arm CFA Residence ($ 7,000,000). Wonder if individuals of Atlanta learn about that?
