We’re not going to recount the Great Chick-fil-A War of 2012 here, but we’re old enough to remember that Sarah Palin was a major player and the whole kerfuffle actually led to a shooting at the Family Research Council by a nut with 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in a bag.
Most of the hubbub has died down, with the occasional exception of clowns like Mayor Bill de Blasio actually discouraging New Yorkers from patronizing the city’s new location; maybe he was warming up for Amazon.
We’d truly thought we were done with the whole thing until HuffPost kicked things off again with a piece last summer arguing that “if you care about queer people ― or you yourself are queer ― you have absolutely no business eating at Chick-fil-A. Ever.”
Now HuffPost is at it again, blowing the lid off Chick-fil-A’s corporate donations. And guess what? It’s the same writer and the same piece as last summer, only updated with important new information.
Chick-fil-A is still donating to anti-LGBTQ groups. https://t.co/H2j7jmpCfg

They really need to stop posting that picture of the food along with their articles telling you not to eat there.
Full disclosure: Noah Michelson’s piece is so long and rambling, we never got to the update where he exposes whoever Chick-fil-A is donating to now. Would it matter? We’re pretty certain anyone who’s going to boycott Chick-fil-A is already boycotting Chick-fil-A.

It's almost like they can donate to whomever they want to.
I was going to have pizza today. But after reading this, I'm heading for Chick-fil-A instead.

I'm going to get some now!

Great! Now I have a craving for Chick-fil-A. Guess I'll be giving them some of my money tonight. Thanks, Huffington Post!

I’m going to eat Chick Fil A for the rest of the week

So don’t go there. Easy enough. More for me.

And I'm still eating their delicious food and enjoying their unparalleled service.

And yet every time I go to Chick-Fil-A I see LBGT members working there. 🤔 Hmm now I know where I’m going for dinner.

Hard working, extremely polite LGBT employees at that.

Which one? They are all independent franchises. Many of the owners are Gay. So somehow they don't fit how you think people should think so you need to have them locked up. Good Luck with that.

Sooooooooo hateful. https://t.co/Mgq7SLuiTZ

Correction: They donate to groups that generally see the biblical definition of marriage to be a man and a woman. Simple belief in that does not make one anti-LGBTQ. Everyone should have the same rights under the law, regardless of sex preference or anything else.

We’re judging by the comments that the Salvation Army is one of the hate groups to which Chick-fil-A donates.
Salvation Army is ani-LGBT? Seriously? I have three family members who are ordained ministers in that organization and they most definitely are not. They will help anyone in need.

Getting bent about donations to the Salvation Army. Real nice look there.
— Ava Fremont (@AvaFremont) March 20, 2019
Well … the Salvation Army does a lot of good for poor people. So we should all donate more to them. No matter what you say. Poor people need food and shelter.

Then don’t eat there, I think it’s important you go around every business and find out who they donate money to and expose them all! You might not like what you see and then you can’t go out anywhere if you’re so offended by everything

It would be what's for dinner except the line was already huge when I drove by.
Take your virtue signaling and SJW staff and shove them.

We guess we’ll check back with HuffPost in another eight or nine months to read their next piece on how if you eat Chick-fil-A you hate gay people.
SERIOUSLY!? What these boycott-happy activists are telling a Toronto Chick-fil-A is a 'tolerance' FAIL https://t.co/9bWIbGr9Hj
