Chick-fil-A, the popular chicken restaurant known for its Christian roots has finally given in to the years of protests and outcries from the Left. On Monday, November 18th, they announced that they will no longer donate to Christian charities that oppose same-sex marriage.
A spokesperson for the restaurant issued a statement saying, “We made multi-year commitments to both organizations and we fulfilled those obligations in 2018,” continuing that they will now focus on giving to charities that focus on “education, homelessness and hunger.”
The Salvation Army is one of the organizations that will no longer receive funds. Upon hearing the announcement the organization said, “We serve more than 23 million individuals a year, including those in the LGBTQ+ community. In fact, we believe we are the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population.”
If Chick-fil-A was hoping to please anyone with this announcement, they were wrong. Liberals have already started spreading memes online claiming that Chick-fil-A is lying. Even politicians are joining in the criticism.
In Aug 2012, I coordinated a national @ChickfilA Appreciation Day after they were being bullied by militant hate groups. Millions showed up. Today, @ChickfilA betrayed loyal customers for $$. I regret believing they would stay true to convictions of founder Truett Cathey. Sad.

Governor Mike Huckabee, who has been a long-time supporter of the restaurant, tweeted his displeasure and disappointment in their announcement.
