Chick-fil-A caves to pressure and decides to stop funding anti-LGBT groups.

"The support that Todd and I show for this restaurant's homophobic policies will ensure that they continue forever. Wait, what just happened?"
Courtesy of Raw Story:

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. 

TCRA noted that the company had clarified that groups like Focus on the Family and the National Organization for Marriage would cut off from future donations. 

In a memo, Chick-fil-A executives have also told franchisees and stakeholders that the company’s policy is to “treat every person with honor, dignity and respect-regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation and gender,” and the “intent is not to engage in political or social debates.” Those guidelines were included in a document titled “Chick-fil-A: Who We Are.”

I just love it when good triumphs over stupidity.

You know there was this one irritating little asshat that kept visiting here and leaving the comment, "So how is that boycott of Chick-fil-A going for you faggots?"

I always rejected that comment because I did not want to get douchebag all over my blog, but now I think it is time to answer that question:

"Pretty good actually. Oh, and by the way, only closeted homophobes believe that people who support LGBT rights have to be gay."

      a friend sent this to me earlier, a little OT, but not really ;



      Subject: Citizens of the Enlightened States of America




      Dear Red States:


      We give up. You have won the race to the bottom.

      We're ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we've decided we're leaving. "Legitimate rape." Sheesh!

      We intend to form our own country and we're taking the other Blue States with us.

      In case you aren't aware that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and the Original Thirteen Colonies.

      We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of The Enlightened States of America (E.S.A).


      To sum up briefly:

      You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.

      We get stem cell research and the best beaches.

      We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal and Todd Akin.

      We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand and Creation Land Park.


      We get Monterey, Carmel, Santa Barbara and Pebble Beach. You get Galveston.

      We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.

      We get Harvard, Yale and Princeton. You get Ole' Miss.

      We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs.

      You get Alabama.

      We get two-thirds of the tax revenue. You get to make the red states pay their fair share, balance their budgets and live on their own income .


      You get to keep the largest prison in the USA, Angola, Louisiana and we keep the highest rate of high school students going on to college and graduating.


      You keep your plantations and we'll keep our innovative technology think tanks.

      Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

      With the Blue States in hand we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners) 90% of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the US low sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

      With the Red States you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs, 92% of all US mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

      We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you. You get to keep your Creationism Museum in Kentucky with special live performances of Adam and Eve living with dinosaurs.

      38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

      We're taking the good weed too! You can have that crap they grow in Mexico.

      Sincerely,

      Citizens of the Enlightened States of America

      You had me until you included all 13 original colonies. We could probably get some trinkets and firearms in exchange for letting them keep Georgia and South Carolina and the "bad half" of North Carolina.

      I'm just kidding since I live in the Deep South, and many of these idiots are my kinfolk from over in Eastern Texas all the way over to Florida and then up to New York. But a bunch of them came on boats into Charleston Harbor to go dig potatoes and grow vegetables and just kept migrating after they "worked off" their 7 years of indentured servitude.

      Yes, there were lots of Western Europeans from Ireland, Scotland, and England (and elsewhere, but most of mine from British Isles, although you don't include "British" and "Ireland" together unless you have your boxing gloves handy) that became "peons" in the south to work off their debt as chattel before they could start on their own "American Dreams". They weren’t slaves to a chain, but to contracts and the land of the “Man in the BIG House”. No free 40 acres and a mule afterwards, either.

      I never read much about slavery of all races in the South until I started doing genealogy about 10 years ago. It's pretty sobering, or humbling, to see persons going 2 or 3 or sometimes more generations (in census reports) before any of them start having an "O" beside their name as a landowner. But it was no coincidence that many of their kids would only go to school until the 6th grade, if that much, and some didn't have an "X" in the block designating that they could read or write in English.

      Once they started becoming more educated, they became landowners and "merchants" and "planters" instead of just "farming" or "sharecropping" where they worked their tails off but still didn't have diddly.

      Enough history lessons for now. It just makes me have a little less patience with some that just won’t listen to anybody else bc they complain so much. But I digress. We’ve just got to find a way to co-exist as best we can.

      Human nature will always be what it is, but the more enlightened people are, the better problem solver they are and much more productive for themselves and their family, too. I’m biased, but education is the best investment we can make in ourselves and one another, too.

      September 17th Sarah showed no signs of reform or that she has grown. Did something happen yesterday? Last I knew she was a petty, vindictive ignoramus who can't carry on a reasonable discussion or deal with facts. Has she ever sincerely expressed or rectified her own mistakes or does she just throw shit onto others from her well protected perch at Fox?

    Obviously the news that this business was donating to anti-gay groups caused sales to fall and that is why they are letting it be known that they have changed their ways (let's hope).

    It is never a good idea for a company to get political (unless you are selling white robes to the KKK). Proctor and Gamble sells a lot of soap and they want everyone to buy the soap. So they don't get into judging what is right and what is wrong. The NFL fought Rush Limbaugh's effort to buy a team because they didn't want to turn off those of us who do not agree with Rush.

    But I think the damage has been done. Many folks who had previously purchased food from this business will not be going back anytime soon.

    Fox Polls: Obama Leads In Ohio, Virginia, And Florida

    Fox News: Obama has edge over Romney in three battleground states..."Likewise, in each state more voters believe the Obama administration's policies have helped rather than hurt the economy"

    “Obama is nearly matching his 2008 support in these key states while Romney is under-performing compared to Republican John McCain,” says Democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who conducts the Fox News poll with Republican pollster Daron Shaw.

    “And a significant enthusiasm deficit among Romney backers suggests he will have headwinds as he seeks to close the gap with the president and turn out his voters.”

    5. I'm not gay either, but even if I was, I'd still go inside the restaurant and get me a couple of chikken sammies and tell the manager to tell the folks at Corporate, "Thanks for finally growing a fucking brain, you, stoopid SOB's.(SOB's being the corp big-hats, not the local folks)."

      Hell, when you see somebody that's fucked something up or made a serious mistake in judgement, but now they're trying to make changes in the right direction, at least drop your sword and throw em a fucking bone of encouragement. Don't spit on em. Some people DO learn and change their ways.

      Only the ignorant baggers dig their heels in and double down on stupid, which is a money-losing proposition. Now it's okay to spit at the truly ignorant ones, since they've usually done spit at you first since you're a little smarter than them or just a different pigmentation or just "different" period.

      I told y'all the bean counters would be on our side about treating everybody with dignity once they had a little time under their belt to run some numbers versus last year for a little longer period of time. I do this shit for a living--- running the numbers and cipherin' and figgerin' whether they are making a penny more this quarter than forecasts over what they did same quarter last year. Not for CFA, but different biz in diff sectors.

      See, now, just go through the drive-thru once or twice so they can realize that doing the right thing for ALL your customers is a good solid money-making idea. Then, maybe CFA will be on the other side of the Prop-8 fight next time putting money into the GLBT or TMJ or whatever "them gays" go by, to defeat the Mormons who put a lot of cash into CA's Prop-8.

      Remember: "Don't be pissed off even after you win. People might mistake you for somebody like Baldy!"

      Besides, if you haven't had one of those chicken sandwiches, you're missing something that's pretty tasty. And there are good folks working at the restaurant-level, just like me and you that supported OUR side by passing along all of the honest feedback that we gave them nicely saying that "my 'eating out about 10 times a week' hungry ass wouldn't be back until they changed their damn policies".

      Just think about it, and then follow your conscience. We'll be friends regardless of what you decide to do.

  27. Hey Granny, I haven't eaten in two days. You want me to call National Enquirer? Then pick me up a couple of sandwiches and drop them by. But cut them up into very small bites. Don't fuck with me, Wig Lady...

    The haters on the right thought they could prop up Chik fil A by showing up in droves ONE friggin day! The boycott against Chik Fil A was a daily one and all those arseholes could muster was one single day in support.

    Chik Fil A felt the progressive rath on a daily basis because those of us boycotting stopped going at all. If the douchebags on the right really wanted to "support" Chik Fil A, they would have shown up day after day to make up for the loss of the progressive dollars. See, there are far more progressive dollars going into the economy than anyone on the right ever believed possible.

    They like to believe that progressives don't carry guns or care about gun rights. They like to believe that progressives like abortion and want to force every rightwing woman to have one. They like to believe that progressives don't have jobs and don't pay taxes and they like to believe that progressives don't love this country.

    Their problem is that they are wrong on every count and because of that, they underestimate the progressives at every turn.

    I guess "those people" tired of eating chicken, and CFA's bottom line was affected.

    Are they going to open on Sundays? If not-
    Does this mean they'll close on Saturdays, the Jewish Sabbath? On Friday's the Muslim's "holy day"? Extend equal employment opportunities to people of all beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientations, and gender?

    Sorry, once a company shows it's true colors, believe them the first time.

      It should be a non issue because no one should be eating this kind of food. If one has to dine out, perhaps choose a nice local eatery that offers food that is locally sourced and prepared in a lower fat and more healthy manner. I don't understand the fast food culture. Food is cheap, and cooking is easy and doesn't have to take a lot of time. One can prepare a fresh and healthy meal from inexpensive ingredients and it will taste so much better than a fast food experience. Why do people cave in and eat this stuff?

      Anytime a restaurant closes for an entire day on the weekend, the employees are getting to spend a day with their families and friends, whether it's the boss' "going to church" day or whatever reason.

      So the employees do love having a full day off when all of the non-retail workers are off work over the weekend, because no other retail business does that. It's not like they make the employees go to Sunday School with their boss or anything.

      If they can change their policies, can't we change our minds? No offense, just my opinion.

      Chic Fil A's mission statement is located here in regard to closing on sundays.

      http://www.truettcathy.com/pdfs/ClosedonSunday.pdf

      What part of

      "To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.
      To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A." did YOU not get?

      If they did it for any other reason, or shut their pie holes about "God" and being a positive influence on ALL that come in contact with CFA.?

      ~snip~

      "Cathy believes that by giving employees Sunday off as a day for family, worship, fellowship or rest, the
      company attracts quality people. And people, Cathy says, are the cornerstone of all that
      Chick-fil-A does as a chain. Chick-fil-A has the opportunity to attract individuals who want to be
      associated with an organization with a values-based vision, that is purpose-driven and that truly values a
      balance between work and family."

      When a company shows it's true colors, believe them the first time.

      No Offense, just my opinion.
