Tax records show Chick-fil-A donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in 2017, an anti-Christian group that lists any organization disavowing same-sex marriage as a “hate-group,” including churches, according to Townhall.com.
According to the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s 2017 IRS 990 form, the fast-food corporation gave $2,500 to the SPLC.
Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council condemned the donations to SPLC and called for a Christian boycott of Chick-fil-A.
“Not only has Chick-fil-A abandoned donations to Christian groups including the Salvation Army, it has donated to one of the most extreme anti-Christian groups in America. Anyone who opposes the SPLC…is slandered and slapped with the ‘extremist’ label or even worse, their ‘hate group’ designation,” Perkins said. “It’s time for Christians to find a fast food alternative to Chick-fil-A.”
