So whats the big deal with a company like Chick-fil-A giving one of the last refuges for children’s programing that doesn’t shove stereo types down our children’s throat and news that carries local, national and worldwide opinions? Well, I’m amazed more people aren’t screaming that federal money should NEVER be spent to promote a company that is even a little bit against civil rights. And this company is publicly awful on the topic. Chick-fil-A is including a book in their happy meals.

A report by Equality Matters notes that Chick-fil-A has funneled more than $1.1 million to organizations fighting civil rights for LGBT people in the United States.
