Chick-fil-A’s Anti-Gay Donations Nearly Doubled in 2011

Dismiss anybody who tells you Chick-fil-A has turned over a new leaf.

Think Progress reports:

Most of the WinShape’s anti-LGBT giving in previous years went to groups like the Marriage & Family Foundation ($1,188,380 in 2010), the Fellowship Of Christian Athletes ($480,000 in 2010), and the National Christian Foundation ($247,500). Additionally, the group made small donations to the “ex-gay” group Exodus International ($1,000) and the hate group Family Research Council ($1,000).

In 2011, the group actually gave even more to anti-LGBT causes. Its contribution to the Marriage & Family Foundation jumped to $2,896,438 and it gave the same amount to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and National Christian Foundation as it had in 2010. In total, the anti-LGBT spending exceeded $3.6 million — almost double the $1.9 million from the year before.

The group gave nothing directly to Exodus International or FRC, but money made its way their through donations from the other groups that wouldn't have been possible without the WinShape donations.

In other words, 'Chikin' is more hateful than ever.
