Supports Hillary Clinton, Obama, but not The Salvation Army!
By Sam Mao
The hypocrisy of Chick-fil-A is mounting to the heavens.
It’s recently been uncovered that while professing to be a Christian organization by closing stores on Sunday, they now have dropped Christian and conservative causes, caving in to the ‘woke’ progressive outrage mob.
Recent news regarding the executive director’s politics might explain these recent decisions that have left many of Chick-fil-A’s most fervent supporters feeling appalled and betrayed.
Rodney Bullard, the executive director of the Chick-fil-A Foundation, donated to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama when they were presidential candidates, according to Federal Election Commission records.
Bullard joined Chick-fil-A in 2011 to start the foundation, which now handles the company’s charitable giving. It was just last week that the Chick-fil-A Foundation came under fire, seemingly caving to social justice warriors, by not renewing its partnerships with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and The Salvation Army. Such an abrupt cut in aid has evangelicals up in arms including Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt who is currently conducting a National Talk Show Tour of Shame, exposing the hypocrisy of his former ally, with the message Chick-fil-A: Chock Full-A Hypocrisy.
The decision sent shock waves across the country and may be one of the biggest moral flip-flops in the history of commerce in U.S. history. Or to put it in food terms, they flat out ‘waffled’ or ‘Chick-flopped’ on their prior principled stands.
Mr. Bullard donated $1,000 to support Clinton in 2016 and appears to have donated $1,000 to support Obama in 2008. Could Bullard’s political affiliation explain the beloved restaurant chain’s sudden and surprising reversal of course?
Earlier this year, airports in Buffalo, New York and San Antonio blocked the restaurant from opening at their sites because of the company’s record on ‘gay’ rights. A location in the United Kingdom is also closing because of protests. With over 2400 locations, were these few ‘bumps in the road’ the straw that broke the chicken retailer’s back, causing them to bow down to ‘progressives’?
The Salvation Army provides assistance physically, spiritually and emotionally to thousands of people. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes provides encouragement and wholesome activities to thousands of young people. What is wrong with contributing to these worthwhile organizations? And who will be on cold streets in dark of night in the dead of winter to help the homeless now that they have been stripped of chicken strips, et al?
“We believe we are the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population,” said the Salvation Army in a recent statement. “When misinformation is perpetuated without fact, our ability to serve those in need, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or any other factor, is at risk.”
Chick-fil-A has committed $9 million to initiatives supporting education and fighting homelessness and hunger in 2020. They also haven’t ruled out donating to organizations that promote traditional marriage—yet the people protesting Chick-fil-A still aren’t happy!
Chick-fil-A, a beloved American restaurant, has done one thing no politician has been able to do – unite us all. Sadly, we are united in disappointment.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
