Herman Cain: Chick-Fil-A Donating Up To $30 Million To Anti-Gay Groups

Herman Cain today told Fox News that Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy will donate almost all the profits from Wednesday’s “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” to anti-gay organizations. Dan Cathy’s director of marketing told the media their corporate policy is to not discuss sales figures, just before Cathy discussed sales figures with Pastor Rick Warren and Herman Cain, the two conservative leaders told the press.

“They are going do take a lot of the excess profits they got on that day and contribute it to the charitable organizations they support in even bigger numbers,” Cain said, adding Wednesday’s sales figures were in excess of $30 million.

Cain, a failed front-running GOP presidential candidate, and reportedly a serial adulterer, who has been out of the public eye for most of the past year after he was forced to “suspend” his campaign when several women accused him of sexual harassment — including one who insists she and Cain had a long-term affair — told Fox’s Eric Bolling:

“This is simply an attempt on the part of the gay community to try and leverage their beliefs on another institution, a private company, since they can’t seem to get enough attention. That is what this is all about.”

Of course, Cain is merely projecting, and licking his failed presidential campaign wounds in public.

“On Thursday, Cain appeared on Fox News and praised Cathy for being “man enough and Christian enough” to oppose same-sex marriage,” Zack Ford at Think Progress notes, adding:

The fast food chain has already donated millions of dollars to anti-gay organizations, including “reparative therapy” groups like Exodus International. Chick-fil-A is one of a very small number of major national companies that refuses to offer any employment protections to LGBT employees. In fact, the company received a 0 rating from the Human Rights Campaign and has a record of firing employees it believes engage in “sinful” behavior.

Winshape is why Chick-Fil-A is Chock-Full-Of-It. The scholarship program of Winshape, almost entirely funded from profits from Chick-Fil-A, requires that to be eligible for a scholarship (to a specified christian college) a recipient must sign a contract that states they agree to attend weekly meetings, participate in a leadership discussion group, engage in community service, (the details of which are not public) and live a fundamentalist Christian lifestyle. The on-line New World Encyclopedia states: "The narrow exclusivism of fundamentalism, however, is contrary to the spirit of tolerance found in all religions."

This might not be so bad if they would keep it in house and limited to all who choose to live that way. But no, they financially pursue activities that seek to impose their life style and a denial of civil and human rights throughout all of society. And they complain about others having an "agenda", like the "gay agenda".

They do not recognize a secular state where church and state co-exist. They would be outraged if the state told the church who the church could and could not marry, but they think it is acceptable and their purpose in life to do everything they can to help create civil laws that restrict marriage to their particular religious practices. Laws that outlaw civil same gender marriage are an imposition by the state upon other religions that have no such prohibitions.

Chick-A-Pow-Wow: Around 1987 Winshape had summer camps for boys and girls. With the use of a native American "Indian" theme age groups were divided into different "tribes". Another aspect of the program included "indian ranks" that campers could achieve based on good behavior and virtues, the apex of which allowed a camper to take a test to achieve the rank of "Little Chief" for boys or "Black Comanche" for the girls. Now they hold these camps in Brazil. How ironic that civil unions and marriage are legal for same-sex couples in Brazil.

Mercy Me. With child abuse everywhere from the Catholic Church, to within families, to universities, can we really know what goes on in the out-of-country camping activities, in the retreat center, or in the foster homes (including one in Brazil). Sometimes the squeakier clean they try to appear, the dirtier is the laundry. Not making any allegations, but now days we need to keep an open mind (unlike theirs).

If companies are people and people vote with dollars then the destination of the restaurant’s donations are open for public debate. It very well should be an issue as to where peoples’ hard-earned money goes after the chicken goes down their gullet. This issue has made our little feathered friend the modern martyr as Chick-fil-A laughs all the way to the bank. Watch the poultry be nailed to the cross and pierced by the spear of destiny at the hands of those devious cows on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08/holy-r
