    Maybe I was confused, but wasn't the issue Cathy's contributions? I don't recall CFA proper making any controversial contributions. Rather, it was what Cathy did with his money (admittedly, he and his make the majority of CFA corporate profits, so it's sort of a wash).

    I believe his personal fortune AND company money were used.

    If he had donated money to Planned Parenthood, no one would have uttered a peep.

    Company money has long been funneled to these organizations. It's definitely not just Cathy's own money.

    It's kind of a distinction without a difference, because CFA has a great degree of "creedal" homogeneity among its franchisees. The kinds of people running those locations are the kinds of people who'd tend to donate to those causes anyway. I just think the HuffPo article was off base, because it implies that because: A) CFA (the company) is not going to be donating to those organizations anymore; then B) those organizations are going to experience a hit to their incomes. Not sure that's necessarily the case.

    I don't follow.

    Hypothetical: Tomorrow, the CEO of, oh, Wendy's, comes out and announces that he's a big donor to Planned Parenthood.

    Rush Limbaugh doesn't make a peep?

    Sean Hannity doesn't make a peep?

    Rick Santorum doesn't make a peep?

    The Wall Street Journal doesn't make a peep?

    And if they didn't, that's on them. In the Chick-Fil-A situation, what amounts to a grass roots gay rights lobby reacted strongly and loudly. Why don't you think that pro-lifers would do the same, under parallel circumstances? And, if they didn't, wouldn't the blame lie exclusively with them? Who is this hypothetical "no one" you refer to?
