Family Research Council Calls For Boycott of Chick-fil-A

Dana Mathewson

This disturbs me greatly! Chick-fil-A has lost its way -- there's no other way to put it.

In 2012 domestic terrorist Floyd Corkins stormed the headquarters of Family Research Council armed with a semi-automatic pistol, 100 rounds of ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches.

"I wanted to kill the people in the building and then smear a Chick-fil-A sandwich in their face,” the gunman told the FBI.

Corkins had been enraged by the nationwide Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day and he selected Family Research Council as a target based on a "hate” map created by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The massacre was averted when Leo Johnson, the building’s manager, tackled the rampaging gunman. Johnson’s arm was shattered by a bullet and he suffered serious injuries in the attack.

Corkins later pled guilty to three charges including committing an act of domestic terrorism while armed.

Now comes word that in 2017 Chick-fil-A donated money to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the same organization that created a map that nearly led to the slaughter of innocent Christians at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C.

TownHall.com published an IRS 990 form that shows the Chick-fil-A Foundation contributed $2,500 to the SPLC.

Why would Chick-fil-A donate money to an anti-Christian group like the Southern Poverty Law Center? Company officials did not return my calls seeking comment.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told the Todd Starnes Radio Show he was stunned by the news.

"It’s time for Christians to find a fast-food alternative to Chick-fil-A,” he said.

I have tears in my eyes as I urge you to read the rest of the story, found here: https://townhall.com/columnists/toddstarnes/2019/11/29/family-research-council-calls-for-boycott-of-chickfila-n2557152 The last time Jack Kemp visited me, I gathered a few local Aviary Ospreys and we ordered a bunch of take-out from Chick-fil-A. It was the best, and so was their service.

No more. Jack, Eddie, Bob, Dick. the next time the chicken will come from Cub, or someplace else.

1 Breaks my heart!

Are there no faithful companies anymore? Will they ALL desert us out of pride and greed?

2 I plan to buy my food from the business which serves the best food. Period. End of calculation. A business does not improve the quality of its food by being liberal, or by being conservative. A business which donates to Donald Trump has neither better nor worse food than one which donates to Nancy Pelosi. I do not buy food as a method of expressing political belief, I buy food to eat.

3 I get that Bill, but myself, I don't want my money winding up funding left wing  causes - which so often is the case these days. If I have a choice I'll pick the lesser of evils.

4 I'm with Tim here. I won't patronize businesses where I know the money goes eventually to the Democratic Party (though that's not apparently the case here). So years ago I scrapped my membership in AARP, just as an example, and joined AMAC instead.


Nor will I buy products from companies who reject the Second Amendment -- won't buy Dockers pants, for example, because they are owned by Levi Strauss, who are very anti-Second Amendment.

It's the principle of the thing, guys.

5 How is AMAC, Dana?  I always throw those AARP membership things away.  I won't use them on general principle.

I don't do business with Taco Bell, either; their CEO is one of George Soros' posse. Ditto Progressive Insurance.

6 AMAC is good, and their bi-monthly magazine is good too. The ads are all for good senior-related products. I can't say if they offer as many senior discounts as AARP does, because I just don't spend time looking for those. But I know my dues are going for better causes.
