Chick-fil-A's Change of Heart
Wiki Images -
Chick-fil-A created quite a stir late last year when their board announced it would no longer provide charitable donations to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

TownHall's Todd Starnes has more:

Both organizations had faced years of withering attacks from sex and gender revolutionaries who were angered because the two renowned Christian ministries affirmed the biblical definition of marriage. 

So when Chick-fil-A made their decision public, many Christians accused the company of backing down to a bunch of militant LGBTQ bullies. And in response many of Chick-fil-A's staunchest supporters flew the coop.

"I now regret that I did it and that I invited your participation," Gov. Mike Huckabee wrote in a letter to supporters. I wonder how long before they go ahead and open on Sundays? Might as well. Or just change their name to 'Ichabod Chicken Sandwiches.'"

American Family Association, one of the nation's top Christian ministries, launched a petition drive that generated more than 116,000 signatures. They wanted clarification on the company's giving habits.

However, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon received an unexpected response from Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy.

"We inadvertently discredited several outstanding organizations that have effectively served communities for years," Cathy explains.
