Chick-Fil-A Pledges To Stop Funding Anti-LGBTQ Groups. And In Other News, Popeyes Is Selling A Lot Of Sandwiches To LGBTQ Folk

The Chicken Chronicles continue!

Chick-Fil-A announced today that the chain would cease contributions to anti-LGBTQ organizations at the end of 2019.

And in other news, Popeyes must have sold a ton of sandwiches to homos.

Why wait until the end of the year? Yes, I understand how philanthropic giving works. The fiscal year often corresponds with the calendar year, blah blah blah. All of that said, I’d yank the homophobes from the tit now, if I were serious.

Gay Twitter went crazy in the wake of the announcement. Many feel that the decision is welcome, albeit long overdue. Others are questioning Chick-Fil-A’s sincerity, claiming that the promise has been made before, and that they’ll have to see it to believe it.

I couldn’t care less whether Chick-Fil-A means it or not. As much as I used to love their yard bird, I haven’t been in one of their locations since 2012 or so, when I learned of their support to organizations who hate queers.

And to make the announcement, without an apology or at least a nod to the LGBTQ community about the hurt they’ve caused, is unconscionable. I’ll stick with Popeyes, weight gain and all, thank you very much.

Yeah, I’m taking about 10 extra pounds of spicy chicken sandwiches into this holiday season, all thanks to Popeyes.

And I don’t regret a single bite.

Sorry, Chick-Fil-A. Your alleged change of heart is too little, and a little too late.
