Good news for fans of tasty chicken sandwiches: the great Chick-fil-A sellout to the Gay Mafia — widely reported in the “mainstream” media and even by the normally trustworthy Washington Times — appears to have been a liberal lie:
Mainstream media organizations have headlined over the last two days Chick-fil-A’s “change” they claim means the company suddenly is promising not to discriminate against homosexuals [as if discriminating against privileged perverts were even allowed in this country] — and that it would stop giving money to those organizations that promote traditional marriage.
“Chick-fil-A says it will stop funding antigay groups” proclaimed the Detroit Free Press.
But it appears the facts are that the company’s anti-discrimination policy remains just as it was months ago – before the controversy over owner Dan Cathy’s Christian beliefs erupted – and its donations appear to have had no new directive applied.
This was largely due to the dishonesty of self-aggrandizing Chicago alderman Joe Moreno, who boasted of forcing Chick-fil-A to bow to the militant homosexual lobby.
Moreno jumped before the cameras to say he has “finalized” negotiations with Chick-fil-A with a promise that the company no longer will give money to anti-”gay” organizations.
He said in an interview with Current.com that a statement had been obtained that the company no longer would donate to pro-marriage organizations, and “I also recently reviewed their 990 statement, which is a statement that shows all of their givings, they must submit publicly in the spring, and as of this date they haven’t given a dollar to those groups.”
But the most recent 990 form would cover 2011, meaning there was no “objectionable” giving, according to Moreno, as long back as 21 months — predating any of the flap over [Chick-fil-A owner Dan] Cathy’s statements.
Adding to the confusion caused by Moreno’s lies was Pink Nazi agitprop:
It was a statement from The Civil Rights Agenda that prompted the recent headlines. It stated that Moreno “finalized” negotiations with the company with a promise to no longer give money to “anti-gay” organizations.
The statement said of the Cathy family’s foundation, the WinShape Foundation, “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.”
But it was in July when the company stated, “Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”
Yesterday Chick-fil-A flatly denied that they had agreed not to give to certain pro-family groups in exchange for Morono allowing them to open stores in Chicago:
Contrary to reports first made by the gay-activist group The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) on Tuesday and later picked up by mainstream media outlets, Chick-fil-A and its charitable-giving arm, the WinShape Foundation, did not agree to stop making donations to groups that support the biblical definition of marriage in exchange for being allowed to open a franchise in Chicago.
Apparently Chick-fil-A hasn’t been giving money to the supposedly controversial National Organization for Marriage or Family Research Council lately anyway. A chicken sandwich with waffle fries and sweet tea may not help defend decency from the homosexual agenda, but it won’t do any harm either.
