For years, Christians piled into Chick-fil-A to support a company unafraid to follow their deeply held beliefs.
But all of that came to a change when the company buckled to left-wing pressure to stop supporting Christian charities.
Now their betrayal just reached unbelievable heights and Christians may boycott them over it.
For decades Chick-fil-A refused to back down in the face of left-wing hate mobs who tried to shut them down for supporting Christian charities.
With the leadership of Godly men like Truett Cathy, who created the company with the mission statement, “To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us. To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A,” he was sure to ruffle some feathers.
But following his death in 2014, things began to change, and last year, the company announced they would stop supporting Christian charities with their foundation.
Since then, they have tried to walk back the statement slightly, even hosting a Christian-centered event with rap superstar Kanye West just this week.
But it wasn’t just that statement that infuriated Christians.
It also came to light that the company’s foundation had begun making donations to the anti-Christian hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
The SPLC is most known for creating lists of “hate groups,” which includes dozens upon dozens of Christian churches and organizations.
Their “hate list” was used by a radical anti-Christian extremist in 2012 to choose the target of a shooting at the Family Research Center.
A brave security guard stopped the madman before he could kill anybody.
The FBI later revealed the man had 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his backpack, which he purportedly intended to shove in the mouths of his victims.
Despite this, the company’s foundation chose to pen multiple donations to the SPLC.
And now the SPLC is causing even more trouble for Christian groups, with a channel of the pro-family American Family Association (AFA) on the video-sharing website Vimeo being shut down because of the SPLC “hate group” designation.
“In recent weeks they’ve taken action against our account,” AFA president Walker Wildmon told OneNewsNow. “They’ve officially shut down American Family Association’s video account with no in-depth explanation and no recourse, no way to defend our credibility.”
Wildmon adds that the action was “based on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s reckless labeling of AFA.”
And certainly the donations from Chick-fil-A’s foundation helped them with this egregious attack on Christian speech.
