Head of the Chick-fil-A Foundation Rodney Bullard has defended its anti-gay donations and excused them with what he calls a higher calling. In an interview with Business Insider published on May 15th he ensured that he considered the activity of the controversial group to be very helpful for the younger generation. And Chick-fil-A wants to help children instead of taking part in any ‘culltural and political wars that are waged’. “This is really about an authentic problem that is on the ground, that is present and ever-present in the lives of many children who can’t help themselves,” he stated. Chick-fil-A has run summer sports camps for children with the FCA for years, an organization which asks its leaders to sign a “purity pledge”, vowing to avoid “heterosexual sex outside of marriage nor any homosexual act,” and this is what caused controversy, not children’s camps. There are many organizations and charities to help children across the USA without opposing LGBT rights.
