The Courage Campaign, a leading LGBT rights organization, put out the following statement on reports that Chick-fil-A will stop giving money to anti-gay organizations.
Rick Jacobs, founder and chair of the Courage Campaign:
"If reports are accurate, this news is a big victory for all the people who stood up for equality and against hate. From politics to business to culture as a nation we are seeing a historic shift towards equality for all. While large majorities of Americans believe in equality, a few continue to discriminate against millions of Americans and stand in the way of progress. If true, today's move by Chick-fil-A is a big step in the right direction. Discrimination and hate have no place in this country."Oops! Maybe not. Just received an update from HRC today, Sept 20, 2012
