LGBT Campus Pride ED says Chick-fil-A tax forms show no donations to ‘most divisive’ anti-gay groups
Atlanta-based fast food chain Chick-fil-A found itself in a world of controversy last year after reports surfaced that the company was funding anti-gay groups like Exodus International and Focus on the Family through the company's WinShape Foundation.
The controversy was only heightened when the company's President and COO Dan Cathy said Chick-fil-A was “guilty as charged” in opposing same-sex marriage rights. Cathy's comments sparked protests, counterprotests and a series of boycotts by LGBT activists.
But a new first-person column published today by Campus Pride Executive Director Shane Windmeyer suggests that the chicken chain's WinShape Foundation has suspended donations to groups that advocate against same-sex marriage rights.
