Chick-Fil-A Profits Are Supporting Uganda’s ‘Kill The Gays’ Bill?

Are Chick-Fil-A‘s profits supporting the infamous Uganda “Kill The Gays” bill? How many degrees of separation does it take before you get to wash your hands of slime?

Every year, millions of dollars from Chick-Fil-A’s corporate profits are donated to Chick-Fil-A’s wholly-owned non-profit “charity,” the Winshape Foundation. In turn, Winshape donates millions to anti-gay organizations, many of which spend most or all their focus on defeating or repealing same-sex marriage, trying to “pray away the gay,” spreading lies and hate about the LGBT community, and more.

Winshape annually donates to Family Research Council.

In 2010, as Scott Wooledge notes in this excellent graphic above, and details in his post at Daily Kosthe Family Research Council, a certified anti-gay hate group run by Tony Perkinsspent $25,000 lobbying Congress to NOT condemn Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” bill.

For more details, read: “Media Malpractice: Press And Pundits Get Chick-Fil-A Vs. Gay Story Wrong.”

Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” bill, also known as the anti-homosexuality bill, has received worldwide attention for its provision mandating the death penalty for anyone convicted of the “crime” of homosexuality, anyone convicted of same-sex rape, anyone who is classified as a “serial offender,” and even anyone with HIV. Other provisions demand life in prison for being gay or for having same-sex sex. Jail sentences are also mandated for people who simply know someone who is gay and not reporting them to the police within 72 hours.

Is Chick-Fil-A supporting hate legislation? You have to ask, how many degrees of separation does it take before you get to wash your hands of slime?

You do realize that this information is 2 years old and inaccurate. The lobbying that was done was to change the wording of the bill opposing the proposed law in Uganda to make it more accurate. FRC stated publicly that it opposed the proposed law in Uganda and supported the bill here in the US opposing that proposed law. Stop spreading lies.

I agree with the above statement ^
Get your facts straight.

Yeah I agree, this is crap reporting and only going to give fodder to the other side. I came to this site looking for ONE decent source only to find all the links link back to articles from you own site! This kind of stuff does NOT help us to fight these guys in any way.

Apparently, you didn't bother to read this paragraph or click on these links:

"In 2010, as Scott Wooledge notes in this excellent graphic above, and details in his post at Daily Kos, the Family Research Council, a certified anti-gay hate group run by Tony Perkins, spent $25,000 lobbying Congress to NOT condemn Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” bill."

Let me know when you've learned to use the Internet.

Thanks for pointing that out. You don't have to be a dick about pointing somehting out though, it's unnecessary. Every other link links back to a site from this webpage, that one was one my mouse skipped over, I suppose my Internet training has been lacking, I apologize for my shortcomings, Oh-mighty-one.

I went to that linked site to see what they say, and it also ends in an information dead-end. However, a simple Google search brings dozens of quality articles on this topic, including relevant history and the current state of affairs, none of which are mentioned or even cited here. So I stand by my initial claim: this is crap reporting and at first glance only stands in the way of their cause.

Yes, because we should take the word of an SPLC-certified anti-gay hate group — FRC — for what they're doing? OK. Good to know that passes as fact. Time to wake up.

Chick-Fil-A donated a measly $1,000 to FRC… why do I keep seeing "millions" donated to hate groups?

This really is this type of great resource that you’re supplying and also you provide away free of charge. I really like seeing websites that understand the need for supplying an excellent resource free of charge. Thank you for this excellent resource

Chic fil a can't be trusted…they have proved that. That is a fact you cannot deny.

Too bad none of you have the guts to blame the black scum who actually run Uganda
