Chick-fil-A Donates to SPLC, Anti-Christian Group linked to Shooter that Stormed Family Research Council

Tax reports have now exposed Chick-fil-A for funding the anti-Christian Southern Poverty Law Center; an organization linked in federal court to domestic terrorism after their smear campaign of Christian organizations resulted in a shooting in which the gunman planned to smear Chick-fil-A sandwiches in the faces of his victims.

Chick-Fil-A Orders Values to Go

Chick-fil-A made a conscious choice to draw attention to this very public divorce from two Bible-believing charities. And then, in a calculated move, announced its support was going to an organization that, on its website, openly and proudly supports everything about the LGBT community.

Chick-fil-A Destroys Its Brand

A brand is more than food and service, it is also what customers perceive about the corporate ethos. Chick-fil-A, with the announcement that it will no longer donate to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, has effectively destroyed the perception that it still adheres to founder S. Truett Cathy’s Christ-centered corporate values.

However visible this cancel culture and boycott fever are, they have not found their way into American life in a broad and meaningful way. When they do, it often backfires. Consider the case of Chick-fil-A, when the social justice crowd went into full protest against the Georgia-based company for the faith of its leadership. Despite hundreds of protests, and government bodies in San Antonio and Buffalo, New York, banning their restaurants in their airports, nothing has gotten in the way of Chick-fil-A's unmatched growth. What would things would look like, though, if real life did become like Twitter?

Being a Trump supporter is no longer allowed, it seems

Editors, Washington Examiner

The basic notion — that Trump supporters deserve to suffer — is mainstream these days. It is the voters’ job to hold our elected officials accountable, not the other way around. Increasingly, Democrats and the media believe there is no tolerable excuse to support Trump. Hence the boycotts recently of expensive exercise-bike outfit SoulCycle (whose chairman hosted a Trump fundraiser) and a viral fact-challenged tweet leading confused celebrities to call for boycotts of McDonald's and KFC (which employ some people who have donated to Trump). It’s a radical position and not one that leaves us optimistic about the health of our democracy.
