    Chick-Fil-A will focus exclusively in the areas of education, homelessness and hunger. Mick Huckabee says that's sad and tragic. Apparently it's anti-Christian to help the hungry, homeless & uneducated. WTF Bible does this guy pretend to read?

    The bible where JC is a blond blue-eyed white guy who hates all sexual relationships except the ones between a married man and woman, and then only in the missionary position for the sole purpose of having kids. This is also the version of the bible where JC admonishes the poor to sack up and stop whining. JC also travels in the Year Zero + [whatever age JC is] equivalent of today's Gulfstream IV private jet, paid for by his followers whom he gets to give him money money money, which is his main passion in life, and the whole point of his spendiferous solid gold tax-free ministry.

    I thought they'd just take the Trump route and ignore the LGBTQ supporters. The company's stance on gay-hate didn't stop them from opening up shop (and doing just fine) in NYC.

    Glad they're feeling enough heat that they're trying to keep up the charade, at least. Of course they'll find another way to fund hatred.

    Odd that you cherry pick the Salvation Army. That must the talking point being pumped out by the extremist groups.

    Chick Fil A gave the Salvation Army a tiny fraction of the millions they give. You try to minimize the fact that they give millions of $$$ to anti-LGBT hate groups by pretending that it is all about the 1% they gave to the Salvation Army.

    Very disingenuous.

    Twelve reasons to reject the Salvation Army, pretty long. There are reasons to support other charities.

    Whether these types of issues matter to you or not is up to you.

    The sad message of @ChickfilA is quite clear- they surrendered to anti- Christian hate groups. Tragic.
    That tweet included a link saying that the company would focus on three initiatives with one accompanying charity each: education, homelessness and hunger.

    Mutabaruka had a nice shout out to the Salvation Army a while back while almost sounding prophetic about the Occupy movement.

    Revolutionary words 'ave become entertainment
    Revolutionaries.. babblin' out angry words
    About changes we need, de system greed
    While they take it for a joke, sniffin' on coke
    Revolutionary words bein digested with
    Bubble gums, pop corn, ice cream
    In tall inter-continental buildings
    Revolutionary words 'ave become entertainment
    Oppressors talkin' about oppressors,
    Oppressin' de oppressors
    Where are the oppressed revolutionaries
    Sippin' coffee and tea, explainin what its like to be
    Down town aroun town, dancin' to the disco
    Gettin' low, not knowin' which way to go
    While the Salvation Army is still leadin' the revolution

    Seriously, how do you stumble onto a site like that?
    I notice you did not address the content of the linked article. And did not provide a link to what you posted, which I assume you want to claim is from the site.

    Apparently not enough; DaveWC referred to the link embedded in the Huckster's tweet:

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/repor...ded-anti-lgbt/

    I'll let DaveWC explain his reasoning further to you, if he feels compelled to do so. But as I understand it, he's pointing out how Huckleberry thinks it's awful that Chick-fil-A caved, too, and that they're no longer a Christian organization (whatever that means).

    I did notice that Chick-fil-A's own twitter feed seems to have some similarly ruffled feathers, e.g.:










    ...they go on like that for awhile.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    The sad message of
    @ChickfilA
    is quite clear- they surrendered to anti- Christian hate groups. Tragic. Chick-fil-A To Stop Donating To Christian Charities Branded Anti-LGBT
    It's quite clear to me. Huckabee thinks that it's sad & tragic that instead of focusing on christian charities that are against LGBT folks they are focusing on three initiatives with one accompanying charity each: education, homelessness and hunger.

    To me, that is sad & tragic. He's saying that helping those in need isn't enough unless you are also focused on fighting the LGBT groups. WWJD? Not that.

    Whatever bud. Your ability to use logic & reason has long vanished. Bottom line is that C-a-F is still charitably helping the needy, just not helping charities that want to harm LGBT folks and Huckabee thinks that's sad & tragic. You asked why I thought that and I showed you. You disagree... I'm shocked.

    "Nothing," if you're trying hard not to see anything implied by a man who describes a firm no longer funding anti-LGBTQ groups as "tragic."
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.
