Chick-fil-A will reportedly stop donating money to charities including the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes following pressure from LGBT groups.

The company announced Monday that it is refocusing its charitable foundation to a smaller number of charities, focusing exclusively on education, homelessness, and hunger.

“Our goal is to donate to the most effective organizations in the areas of education, homelessness and hunger. No organization will be excluded from future consideration – faith based or non-faith based,” Tim Tassopoulos, president and COO of Chick-fil-A, said in a statement.

Chick-fil-A’s tax records shows that it gave to several Christian schools and charitable groups in 2018. None of those groups appears in a list of Chick-fil-A’s 2019 charitable giving that the company made available for preview.

Tassopoulos told the news site Bisnews on Monday that Chick-fil-A wants to be “clear about who we are” as it enters new markets.

“There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” he told the site. “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”

As a result, the company will no longer give money to organizations including the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home.

Those charities have caused LGBT activists to target Chick-fil-A due to those organizations’ stances on homosexuality.

In 2018, Chick-fil-A gave $115,000 to the Salvation Army for the Angel Tree program, which provided gifts for 11,000 children during the holiday season. The fast-food chain also gave $1.65 million to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes to provide underserved youth with week-long summer sports camps at historically black colleges and universities (HCBU).

In August, progressive Silicon Valley giant followed Chick-fil-A’s lead, giving $1.5 million to the Salvation Army to fight homelessness.

Chick-fil-A has faced mounting criticism from LGBT groups as it seeks to expand its corporate footprint. The Atlanta-based company recently announced the closure of its first restaurant in Great Britain just a week after it opened due to protests from LGBT activists. Airports in Buffalo, New York, and San Antonio, Texas, have banned Chick-fil-A restaurants in the face of similar pressure.

  1. Thank you for your comments. I too celebrate free speech.

  2. So when can we start demanding all adulterers be put to death according to Leviticus and Deuteronomy? I mean if Christian pastors and preachers can demand the death penalty for lgbts based on Leviticus and other parts of the bible? Why cannot we demand the death penalty for all adulterers?

    Leviticus 20:10 If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

    Deuteronomy 22:22-24 If a man is found lying with the wife of another man, both of them shall die, the man who lay with the woman, and the woman. So you shall purge the evil from Israel. “If there is a betrothed virgin, and a man meets her in the city and lies with her, then you shall bring them both out to the gate of that city, and you shall stone them to death with stones, the young woman because she did not cry for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbor’s wife. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.

    So I guess? We will start demanding the death penalty for adulterers based on the bible like Christians demand the death penalty for lgbts based on the bible. I mean you all should reap all you have sown and have done unto you as you all want to do unto lgbts and others.

    • I have never heard any Christians I know make any statement or desire for the death penalty for LGBTQ people. You’re comments prove how anyone can take God’s Word and spin it to their own use.

      • You are a dumb ass then if you state that you never heard Christians demanding the death penalty for lgbts. And then? YOU play the typical game of Christians to absolve yourself for your failure to stand up to these kinds of psychotic Christians. I mean you promote hate and bigotry against lgbts in this blog, but you seem to have no freaking problem with adulterers now do ya?

        And adulterers? Are condemned a hundred times more in the bible than homosexuals are. But you would not know this from you cherry-picking, buybull-thumping hypocrites of hate would ya?

        So as you Christians do this to lgbts? WE Are going to start demanding what you all do to lgbts? Be done to your fellow Christian adulterers. Because the bible says? Adultery is an abomination, it is a death penalty punishment and adulterers go to hell for all eternity.

        So as you Christians sow? So shall you reap, and as you all do unto lgbts? The same shall now be done to your Christian adulterers.

        • Because I do not condone lgbts lifestyle does not indicate hate, nor my desire to have them executed.

          • Just because you do not? Does not mean that other psychotic Christians are not. Oh and let me ask you, do you treat adulterers the same way you treat lgbts? Because adulterers are also given a death penalty punishment in the bible, and are also called abominations. But it seems? YOU give adulterers a pass…like in Donald J Trump. You hypocrite Christians and your cherry picking, buybull thumping against lgbts, but not adulterers? Never cease to amaze me.

            And as far as I am concerned? Any Christian pastor calls for the brutal murders of others, based on their bible verses they cherry pick? Are no fucking better than the Muslim Talibans. Actually you are worse. You turn around saying you follow Jesus and he is your Lord and Savior, while ignoring all the rules and laws and commandments he laid down for all of you, especially the one where YOU are supposed to love all your neighbors, including your atheist and lgbt neighbors, with all of your heart, soul, mind and body. To never judge another, to never hate another person, etc. But you cherry picking, buybull thumping hypocrite Fake Christians wouldn’t know Jesus if he came up and slapped you all in the face. Matter of fact? Jesus is the dark skinned, nappy haired Jew most of you Christians would not even want to sit next to on a damn airplane. And if he came around telling you all to love all your neighbors, or to treat foreigners as if they were members of your own family, or all the other things he taught in your buybulls? You Christian Repugnant Convervatives? Would hang him back up on that cross, calling him a libertard, a commie and a fag.

      • YOU actually think your Jesus Christ would stand up and defend Trump? Or the Repugnants? I got news for ya. Here are a couple of bible verses that prove? All you Trumpsters? All you Repugnants and Traitor Trump? Are all going to hell. And proves? YOU and your hateful buddies here? Are no Christians.

        Malachi 3:5 Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.

        Matthew 25: 35-40: 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

        Matthew 22:36-40: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.

        Matthew 19: 16-30: 16 A man came to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to have eternal life?” 17 Jesus answered, “Why do you ask me about what is good? Only God is good. But if you want to have eternal life, obey the law’s commands.” 18 The man asked, “Which ones?” Jesus answered, “‘You must not murder anyone, you must not commit adultery, you must not steal, you must not tell lies about others, 19 you must respect your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.’ 20 The young man said, “I have obeyed all these commands. What else do I need?” 21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, then go and sell all that you own. Give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven. Then come and follow me!” 22 But when the young man heard Jesus tell him to give away his money, he was sad. He didn’t want to do this, because he was very rich. So he left. 23 Then Jesus said to his followers, “The truth is, it will be very hard for a rich person to enter God’s kingdom. 24 Yes, I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter God’s kingdom.”

        Leviticus 19:33,34 : ‘When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.’The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God.

        Deuteronomy 10:18-19: He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Love the sojourner, therefore, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.

        So yeah, according to this? YOU and the rest of your fellow “Christians” here and Trump and the Repugnants? Are all going straight to hell. Enjoy your eternity you disgusting hypocrite.

        • Dear atheistmilitantsrising.

          Your rantings are not a problem for me. You are not my judge. Almighty God is, and He has approved me because I made Jesus, His Son, my resurrected Savior, both Lord and King, and am filled with His Spirit.

          No one will take a sworn atheist seriously when judging a Christian man with scriptures he knows nothing about. All you quotes are taken out of context. Simply reading scripture is not enough for we are taught in 1 Corinthians 1 that scripture can only be understood by His Holy Spirit to His regenerate believers.

          I do not hate you atheistmilitantsrising. I love you. God loves you and would like a personal relationship with you through the Lord Jesus the Christ. I pray you do.

          • Scriptures I know nothing about? I think my Masters degree from Bangor Theological Seminary in biblical studies and comparative religion? Would call bullshit on your assertions that I know nothing about scriptures. But that is the typical response from mental midget moron Christians like yourself. You do realize that many of us atheists were Christians at one time right? And many Christian pastors? Are in fact? Atheists in the pulpits. And why do many of us become atheists? Because we actually studied your disgusting, vile, evil god of the bible, we studied the true history of the blood thirsty Jews and most of all? We studied the 1,700 year history of the most brutal, blood thirsty, murdereous, hypocrite filled religion of them all in recorded human history, Christianity.

            YOU Christians proved your love of Jesus and God by slaughtering millions upon millions of fellow human beings starting with the Pagans. YOU Christians? Are covered in the blood of millions upon millions of innocent victims you all slaughtered, in your forced conversion programs, your wars, etc. Christians actually? Hold the record for the three worst cases of mass genocide slaughter in recorded human history, the first? Against us Native Americans of North, Central and South America, where Christians slaughtered millions of Natives under their psychotic Christian Manifest Destiny evil. The second was your Christian forced conversion crusades into Northern Paganlands. 7 of them, where Christians slaughtered and butchered millions of Pagans in Europe and other lands. The last was actually? Your Positive Christian buddy Adolph Hitler, and his psycho Nazis, slaughtering about 14 million more humans.

            Don’t you ever think I got no right to judge you disgusting Christians. I have every damn right to judge you, just like you twisted hypocrites of hate and bigotry and misogyny and perversions feel you have a right to judge me and others. YOU Christians sure fucking hate reaping what you all sow and having done unto you as you all do to others now don’t you?

            Well get ready you Christian punks. Because many of us have had it with your ChristoTaliban Fascism and we? Are going to truly start doing unto you psycho Christians what you do unto others and let you all reap back all the death, all the hate, all the evil you Christians have sown unto others for about 1,700 years now.

            And your god is as useless as tits on a bull and proved that by all those Christians being massacred in the churches. And by not answering one child, out of the millions, raped and tortured and brutalized by far too many disgusting ,degenerate pedophile pervert priests and pastors and school teachers and others of your degenerate religion.
