Chick-fil-A has promised that its WinShape Foundation will quit funding socially conservative groups that oppose gay marriage, according to Chicago advocacy group the Civil Rights Agenda:

In meetings the company executives clarified that they will no longer give to anti-gay organizations, such as Focus on the Family and the National Organization for Marriage.

Seems like great news, except for one small detail: NOM president Brian Brown says, "WinShape never gave to us."

Too bad -- guess we'll have to hear it straight from the chicken's beak.

Chick-Fil-A Confessional of the Day

Love or hate the policies of Chick-Fil-A, many still covet the delicious hot meat and buns. A careless lunch can ruin your show of solidarity. Or can it?

Enter the Chick-Fil-A Confessional, a website that gives you forgiveness from your sins -- provided that you complete the required pennance.

Confess, ye sinners!

[thanks, lesley!]

When Christianity goes corporate.


Apology of the Day

- -

From the "Too Little, Too Late" department comes this apology from former Vante CFO Adam Smith, whose berating of a Chik-Fil-A drive-thru employee last week set the blogosphere ablaze. Smith delivers a classic "Because I Got Caught" apology, and based on the feedback, the Internets aren't buying it.


Afternoon Snack

YouTube cook Hilah Cooking was bummed to learn this week that Chick-Fil-A president Jim Cathy opposes gay marriage (the fast-food chain gave $1.7 million to anti-gay groups in 2009 alone).

So Hilah whipped up a quick video that shows us how to make the chain's fried chicken sandwich at home -- with "less sugar, less salt, and less funding for anti-human-equality organizations."

She calls it the Chick-Fil-Gay.


This Is Fabulous, You Should Watch It of the Day

- -

Drag queens Detox, Vicky Vox, and DQ'd Drag Race contestant William Belli pay a tongue-in-chicken ode to pro-anti-gay restaurant chain Chick-fil-A with an "endorsement" video set to Wilson Phillips' "Hold On."

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly's PopWatch, Belli says she recently learned about the company's ties to anti-gay groups and decided to write the song after getting diarrhea from eating at a Chick-fil-A.

"The fact that they come after gay people, let me come for you," Belli said. "The worst endorsement for a Christian chicken eatery is three drag queens."
