Has Chick-fil-A gone over to the dark side?
Remember a year or two ago (or was it longer than that?) when Leftist organizations—with the full-throated cooperation of the (formerly) mainstream media—attacked the Chick-fil-A fast-food company for their stand on Christian values? I remember how Christians flocked all the more to the tasty sandwich-maker’s franchises to show their support for the company. I personally have always liked their signature chicken sandwich. Mmmm-mmm. But I can do without it now, and I will no longer patronize Chick-fil-A. Why?
Because it has recently come to my attention that Chick-fil-A has caved to pressure from anti-Christ organizations. They recently announced they would no longer be donating to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, among other Christian organizations deemed as “hate groups,” or “anti-LGBTQ,” etc. Shame on Chick-fil-A!
Just who is it who labels certain organizations as “hate groups,” etc? Well, it is self-appointed “watchdog groups” such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). They make it their business (an extremely lucrative business at that, as noted below) to monitor any and all Christian groups who dare to be religiously and/or politically-incorrect as determined by the SPLC’s virulently anti-Christian standards.
SPLC has been running their racket for decades, but thankfully, now certain Fox News opinion shows (notably, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Martha McCallum) have recently begun to expose the SPLC as an outfit of frauds and fear-mongers. Tucker reported that the “poverty” organization has over half a billion dollars tucked away in offshore accounts. The money is raised from gullible Americans who believe the SPLC tripe about tiny organizations such as SKM, the likes of which are called threats to democracy, racists, extremists, neo-Nazi’s, white supremacists, etc.
Back in 1996, the SPLC sent their magazine-format compilation of “hate groups in America,” to Asheville’s liberal daily rag, the Asheville Citizen-Times (which had been bought by the USA Today parent, the Gannett company). The Citizen-Times thereupon ran a Sunday edition, front page, top-of-the-fold story headlined “Hate Groups in Western North Carolina.” Much of it was a devoted to SKM as it regurgitated the lies of the SPLC.
By the way, last March, the SPLC ousted its co-founder, Morris Dees, on “personnel issues.” However, several articles suggested “Dees was fired over multiple instances of sexual harassment and, ironically, racism toward black employees.” Here are links to two particularly revealing articles, the latter being written by a gay liberal who describes his eyes being opened to the true nature of the “watchdog” group when he went to work for them. (1) Here’s Why The SPLC Fired Morris Dees (Why Wasn’t He Fired Decades Ago?) and (2) The Reckoning of Morris Dees and the Southern Poverty Law Center
The SPLC is headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama. Morris Dees’ middle name is Seligman. Years ago, I speculated that perhaps Morris was descended from the famous Alabama Seligman family of the 1800’s who were nicknamed “the Rothschilds of the South.”
So now that Chick-fil-A has caved to pressure (from whom?), to make matters worse, their foundation is now contributing to the same Southern Poverty Law Center! Unless they reverse course, I shall never eat at their establishments again, and I ask my readers to ponder the same course. Vote with your pocketbooks! What would happen if millions of Christians did the same?
As for myself, I have reproduced copies of this article, “Chick-fil-A grilled over donation to Southern Poverty Law Center,” which I plan to give to the local Chick-fil-A franchise owner/manager to apprise them of my decision and my grave disappointment in the once-Christian company. Finally, here is the article which a friend sent me, and which initially alerted me to Chick-fil-A’s “going over to the dark side,” as my friend described it. Chick-fil-A once inspired me to live out my faith in the workplace. Those days are gone.
