Chick-fil-A CEO Says Company Never Agreed to Stop Making Anti-Gay Donations: '[We] Made No Such Concessions'
Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy told Mike Huckabee that contrary to reports announced this week by Chicago LGBT rights group The Civil Rights Agenda and Chicago alderman Joe Moreno, Chick-fil-A has NOT agreed to end its anti-gay donations.
Mike Huckabee writes on his website:
I talked earlier today personally with Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick Fil-A about the new reports that Chick Fil-A had capitulated to demands of the supporters of same sex marriage. This is not true. The company continues to focus on the fair treatment of all of its customers and employees, but to end confusion gave me this statement:
“There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect. Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been.”
