The Menace of LGBTQ Bigots

Chick-fil-A has “stopped donations to several Christian organizations after receiving backlash from LGBT rights activists over the last several weeks,” Mairead McCardle of National Review reports. The popular restaurant chain will no longer donate to the Salvation Army, the Paul Anderson Youth Home, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
In its report, NBC News called these groups “controversial” and the donations “controversial funds.” That might come as a surprise to many Chick-fil-A patrons.
The Salvation Army dates from 1865 and works in 130 countries “dedicated to doing the most good,” and meeting human need “without discrimination.” By its own count, the Salvation Army assists 25 million Americans every year.
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes, launched in 1954, works in 84 countries “engaging, equipping and empowering coaches and athletes to united, inspire and change the world through the gospel.” Prominent members have included UCLA coach John Wooden and Los Angeles Rams running back “Deacon” Dan Towler.
The Paul Anderson Youth Home, named after the record-setting Olympic weightlifter, strives to provide, “a Christ-centered, holistic, and therapeutic approach towards transforming the lives of young men ages 16-21.” PAYH tailors individual plans “to meet each young man’s specific needs at the physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual level.”
In the founding document of these Christian groups, the Bible, marriage is between a man and a woman. This support for traditional marriage is the source of hostility from LGBTQ groups.
According to the National LGBTQ Task Force, “The Chick-fil-A controversy stems from the millions of dollars the fast food chain has donated to anti-LGBT hate groups over the years, and to President Dan Cathy’s hostile remarks against marriage equity.” Drew Anderson of GLAAD, an LGBTQ advocacy group, told NBC that “Chick-fil-A investors, employees and customers can greet today’s announcement with cautious optimism, but should remember that similar press statements were previously proven to be empty.”
