Chick-fil-A restaurants' philanthropic WinShape Foundation no longer funds the most controversial and politically charged anti-same-sex-marriage groups and has not since 2011, according to Campus Pride, a leading national LGBT campus organization.
Campus Pride issued a statement Monday claiming that Chick-fil-A gave the organization's executive director, Shane Windmeyer, access to WinShape's 2011 "990" tax documents.
He said they show that the nearly $6 million in outside grant funding "focuses on youth, education, marriage enrichment and local communities" and that in the list of the foundation's beneficiaries, "the most divisive, anti-LGBT groups are no longer listed." Among those groups were the Family Research Council, Eagle Forum and Exodus International.

My husband and I stopped eating there once we found out they were hate mongering, and I have missed the lemonade SO MUCH! I am so happy to see them moving their donations to causes that improve the community. Guess whose going to CFA tomorrow? ;-)
I find it disturbing that people will wait in the drivethrough for 20+ minutes for a chicken sandwich.
Everytime I try to go there for lunch theres a line of cars spilling out into the street, screw that, and it stays busy until like 3pm while every other fast food place around it has been deserted since 1:30. Its a good chicken sandwich but its not that good.
Ive noticed that almost everyone waiting in the line is a woman too, is there something about the ingredients that is addictive that they simply MUST have chick fil a? Or are women just more willing to wait in such ridiculous lines?
'Bout time! I still want to see a sustained effort by Chick-fil-a for inclusion before I buy from them again.
Good...not that I eat there anyway...
