Chick-Fil-A has enjoyed prominence in the fast-food game for its chicken sandwiches and cheery customer service but what has dogged the company is its donating of funds to two anti-LGBTQ groups. Changing course, Chick-Fil-A says it will no longer donate funds to the groups.
As reported by Reuters, the fast-food giant said it will no longer donate funds to two Chrisitan organizations, The Salvation Army and to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA).
