Sick Chickens....

The next you feel your stomach crying out for Chick-Fil-A's waffle fries, think twice. According The Advocate, the Georgia-based organization donated nearly 2 million dollars to anti-gay organizations back in 2009.

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy has said that his company doesn't carry an "agenda against anyone," but it's hard to believe that after considering their "philanthropy." Some of the groups the corporation has contributed to through WinShape, the side company created in 1984 for corporate giving, include organizations that not only actively work to end marriage equality, but also groups that attempt to "convert" gay people and one that's considered a "hate group" by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Here are some of WinShape's contributions, according to tax records from 2009:

- Marriage & Family Legacy Fund: $994,199
- Fellowship of Christian Athletes: $480,000
- National Christian Foundation: $240,000
- Focus on the Family: $12,500
- Eagle Forum: $5,000
- Exodus International: $1,000
- Family Research Council: $1,000

While some of the names listed are no surprise, I'm sure I'm not the only one who did a double take when I saw Fellowship of Christian Athletes. FCA? Isn't that just about high school jocks reading the Bible and praying together to score touchdowns and sink three-pointers? Apparently not, as the organization has held conferences where leaders claim people have been "delivered" from homosexuality, and even feature an ex-gay story (a dykedelic P.E. coach) on their website.
