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

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.

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