So Chik-Fil-A has reportedly taken the bold step of ceasing financial support to hate groups. 11 Alive posed the question ‘Do you think this helps or hurts the Atlanta company?’
Hmmm. Don’t need to think long or hard about that, at least not in regards to whether the purveyors of intolerant chicken rise or fall in my estimation in light of this new information.
All this does is put them back at the square one of not doing anything intentionally harmful or discriminatory. So after all this controversy, the best they can apparently manage is to do nothing at all. Well, I’ll take nothing at all over the knowledge that they actively finance hate groups and dogmatically driven legislation, but it would be nice to see them take a further step and join the ranks of those who are actually trying to do something positive.
So…….it won’t hurt them, but I see no reason why it should help them, either.
