Chick-fil-A halts donations to 2 groups against gay marriage

Posted: Updated:

Starting next year Chick-fil-A's charitable donations will no longer go toward two groups that oppose gay marriage. 

The faith-heavy business will no longer give to the Salvation Army or the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 

The company suggests it's to broaden its customer base. Instead of supporting those non-profits, the Chick-fil-A Foundation will focus on food insecurity, homelessness and education. 

Its president says the company will still consider donations to faith-based groups, but didn't specify whether the restaurant will consider an organization's position on gay rights before giving. 

Chick-fil-A was a the center of a dispute in San Antonia when the city council blocked it from its airport over its support of those groups. Earlier this year, the state passed a bill aimed at stopping that kind of policy. 

The "Save Chick-fil-A" law prohibits a municipal government from infringing on a business's rights due to its administrators closely held religious beliefs.
