People are theorizing that Popeyes' chicken sandwich convinced Chick-fil-A to stop donating to controversial groups. Here's the real reason for the change

One year ago   |   By Business Insider

Many people pointed to the success of Popeyes' chicken sandwich as convincing Chick-fil-A to end its donations to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes on Monday.
However, Chick-fil-A appears to have cut its controversial donations earlier this year - before Popeyes rolled out its chicken sandwich.
A Chick-fil-A representative said the company's decision was separate from Popeyes' sandwich rollout.
Chick-fil-A's expansion efforts are far more relevant to the donations decision than the arrival of Popeyes' chicken sandwich.

Chick-fil-A is facing backlash for its decision to stop donating to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, two groups that have been criticized by LGBTQ advocates.
Former Republican Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said the chain "surrendered to anti-Christian hate groups."
However, Chick-fil-A will still emphasize its founder's Christian values, close on Sundays, and remain open to donating to faith-based groups.
