    Chick-fil-a

    Saturday Uganda announced a bill to legalize murdering gay people. National Christian Organizatipon paid a preacher to go to Uganda and help their lawmakers with the bill.

    Chick-fil-a funds National Christian Organization. If you eat at Chick-fil-a, this is what your money goes to.

    OK, it's not quite Tomas de Torquemada, but it's another occasion for that well-known New Testament verse, "Jesus wept."

    Besides--what's any chicken ever done to you?

    Well, I had to do some research on this... it seems this came from a viral facebook post....

    It appears a Ugandan MP did say he intended to table a bill that would allow the death penalty for homosexual acts. BUT apparently the government issued a statement that they have no intention of person [pursuing?] the bill.

    Further- it seems the mp was talking about re-tabling a bill that had passed several years ago that had further criminalized homosexuality (but had the death penalty removed before passage). This law was promptly struck down by their courts as unconstitutional.

    As to the rest of the claims - yes- the charitable organization founded by the (deceased) founders of Chik-Fil-A gives lots of money to the National Christian Foundation (not organization as the post called it). And the charitable organization and the company remain closely linked- with at least a couple members of the board being top executives at the company.

    I can find no evidence to support the claim that NCF "sent a preacher to help with the writing of the law", though it is true NCF gives money to numerous churches and priests in Uganda, some of whom are outspoken critics of homosexuality.

    According to Newsweek NCF is one of the largest charities in the US and between 2015-2017 gave $56million to 26 groups listed as "hate groups" by the Souther Poverty Law Center

    And finally, I'll simply point out that Chik-Fil-A has been involved in numerous anti LGBTQ controversies in recent years and along with Hobby Lobby have become the public face of corporate chains that are openly anti-LGBTQ . (They are also the only 2 large national chains I can think of that close all their locations on Sundays).

    In addition to the comments below, if you really cared about LGBTQ in Uganda, you would be organizing a boycott of all things from Uganda, demanding companies divest in Uganda, demanding US stop all foreign aid to Uganda. But likely you don't really care, you just wanted to signal your extra virtue with a mostly false, undocumented diatribe against a place that sells chicken sandwiches. This stinks of cancel culture and intolerance. So no, I don't think if you take a picture of me eating a Chick-Fil-A sandwich, and post it to my boss, that I should be fired for openly supporting the murdering gays, as you imply.

    Oh, and what is the big anti-LGBTQ thing they did? Funded groups that had the identical position to Obama and Clinton on gay marriage.
