Chick-fil-A will no longer donate to anti-LGBTQ organizations

Time to dish the dirt, rag on celebrities, rage on politics, reveal more than our fair share about sex, and generally discuss anything and everything -- it's up to you, kids.

They're already kind of walking it back and trying to have the best of both worlds. All they're going to do is piss everyone off.

And it's a full flip-flop!

The country’s former favorite chicken sandwich giant Chick-fil-A announced a major change to its charitable arm of business on Monday. Come 2020, the fast food chain will no longer donate to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, two organizations that have historically opposed LGBTQ rights including same-sex marriage.

Chick-fil-A says it will now focus its charitable efforts in three areas: education, homelessness, and hunger. But when asked more specifically, it did not go so far as to say that it will no longer donate to organizations that oppose LGBTQ rights.

"No organization will be excluded from future consideration–faith-based or non-faith-based," Chick-fil-A President and COO Tim Tassopoulos said in a statement to VICE.

Like the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Salvation Army (which now hosts a pro-LGBTQ page on its website), Chick-fil-A has faced accusations of homophobia from LGBTQ advocates because of both its charitable donations and public comments made by the fast food chain’s executives. In 2012, the current CEO (then-COO) of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, triggered a massive controversy when he condemned same-sex marriage on a radio talk show.
