Chick-Fil-A’s Donations To SPLC Exposed

OK, so following revelations that Chick-Fil-A supports Common Core and that they were pulling donations to Christian charities that spoke out against the abominations promoted by the LGBTQ movement, it has been uncovered that Chick-Fil-A was also bankrolling the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a known Marxist organization that targets Christian, family and conservative organizations, as well as individuals themselves.

PJ Media reports:

In a truly shocking development, the fast-food chain even funded the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which is notorious for slandering conservative and Christian organizations by calling them “hate groups” on par with the Ku Klux Klan. While conservative Christians have been defending Chick-fil-A from criticism, the fast-food chain donated to one of their worst enemies.

On Wednesday, a Christian non-profit Chick-fil-A once supported called for a boycott of the fast-food chain.

“It’s time for Christians to find a fast-food alternative to Chick-fil-A,” Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC) said in a statement.

On Tuesday, Townhall’s Ryan Bomberger revealed the shocking news that Chick-fil-A had given $2,500 to the SPLC in 2017, citing the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s Form 990.

Yet a Chick-fil-A spokeswoman insisted that the SPLC donation did not represent the company as a whole, and due to the restructuring of Chick-fil-A’s philanthropic giving, it will not happen again.

“The donations in question were disclosed in the 2017 Chick-fil-A Foundation 990 that listed giving in that calendar year. Among the recipients that year were Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Salvation Army, Paul Anderson Youth Home and more than 300 other organizations. The SPLC donation was made by a volunteer member of the Chick-fil-A Foundation Advisory Board,” the spokeswoman explained. “Each volunteer advisor, in 2017, was offered the opportunity to recommend a grant recipient. The grants were given to a range of organizations, including Meals on Wheels, Atlanta Mission, the Holocaust Survivor Support Fund, Georgia Historical Society and brain health research at Emory University.”

“Not only has Chick-fil-A abandoned donations to Christian groups including the Salvation Army, it has donated to one of the most extreme anti-Christian groups in America,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said Wednesday in a prepared statement.

“Anyone who opposes the SPLC, including many Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and traditional conservatives, is slandered and slapped with the ‘extremist’ label or even worse, their ‘hate group’ designation,” Perkins added.

In a letter written on Tuesday to Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, roughly 50 conservative leaders criticized the company for “bowing to the pressure of left-wing extremist groups” and called on Cathy to rethink the company’s approach to charitable giving.

“Your latest decisions to withdraw charitable giving to the Salvation Army and other Christian charities has betrayed the very people who stood with you,” the letter says. “You have instead allied yourself with a bully-tactic leftist movement that will never be satisfied with your compromises.”

The letter added: “There is a growing list of American corporations that have discovered, with each new compromise, [that] leftists only become more emboldened in their attacks.”

They reminded Cathy that when he and the company were under attack by some of the same forces that they are now supporting in some way or another, “America’s families stood with you,” and I might add were the catalyst for Chick-Fil-A’s rise in prominence in America since that time.

As a result of that stand, the letter points out, “your restaurant chain vaulted into the top 3 nationwide.”

The letter ended, “We stand firm with the Salvation Army and others who truly are ‘faithful stewards’ of the heritage entrusted to them and all Americans.  We urge you to immediately reverse course and reconfirm your commitment to America’s families by rejoining us in support of these groups.”

I wonder why these groups have not called them out on their support of Common Core Standards.
