Chick-fil-A Donations 'Mischaracterized'

New, 8 comments

Chick-fil-a-092112.jpgSo will Chick-fil-A stop giving money to anti-gay groups? While the Southern chicken chain stayed mum after statements came out earlier this week saying it agreed to stop supporting those groups, it released a statement Thursday saying its "corporate giving has been mischaracterized" and "our intent is not to support political or social agendas." But then COO Dan Cathy reportedly tweeted a photo from a fundraiser for the Marriage and Family Foundation, an organization activists say helps lobby against gay marriage." Sounds like there's some conflict there. [~E~]
