Chick-fil-A’s apparent abandonment of its historic Christian principles continues to vex many of its most loyal customers, with one of its latest donations in particular illustrating just how dramatically the food chain’s reputation has changed. One of the organizations Chick-fil-A now funds, Covenant House, hosts Drag Queen Story Hour events which feature adult crossdressers reading to children.

For years, LGBT activists had attempted to brand Chick-fil-A as “hateful” due to CEO Dan Cathy’s stated opposition to same-sex “marriage” and the company’s past donations to social conservative groups such as the Family Research Council (FRC) and Focus on the Family. But while the company has no shortage of detractors in politics and media, the complaints fell on deaf ears among actual customers.

Nevertheless, the company announced last month that it would stop donating to the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), and the Paul Anderson Youth Homeorganizations attacked as “anti-LGBT” for taking traditional biblical stances on homosexuality.

“We don’t want our intent and our work to be encumbered by someone else’s politics or cultural war,” the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s Rodney Bullard said.

The news was soon followed by revelations that the company had donated to several “progressive” and pro-LGBT organizations, including the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the ostensibly-Catholic youth homeless shelter Covenant House, which “takes pride in its promotion of all things LGBTQ” according to Radiance Foundation founder Ryam Bomberger. “They even marched in the New York ‘Gay Pride’ parade to show their inclusivity cred.”

More alarmingly, Covenant House has supported one of the most controversial recent developments in LGBT activism: Drag Queen Story Hour. The movement’s New York City page lists Covenant House New York as having provided “community space” to host events in which adult crossdressers read to children about “intersectionality” and “learn[ing] to see beyond the pink and blue gender binary,” according to the organization’s own website.

Beyond the activist subject matter, past DQSH events have been controversial for instances of drag queens teaching kids to twerk and soliciting their email addresseshaving children lay on them, and appearing to flash children. Some events have also come under fire for featuring drag queens who are X-rated performers in their “normal” careers, for attracting radical transgender protesters, and even putting convicted pedophiles and prostitutes in close proximity to children.

“I never attended [Chick-fil-A founder Truett] Cathy’s Sunday school or even met him, but he influenced my walk with God nonetheless, and I’m sure the same is true for many of the chain’s employees,” writes the FRC’s JP Duffy, who worked at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in his youth. “I can only imagine the number of spiritual conversations that his ‘closed on Sunday’ policy has sparked between parents and their children. Sadly, those family conversations have changed dramatically recently.”

    Dan Cathy, your father cannot be proud of you for caving into the LGBTQ world. Please return to Christian principles.
