Timothy Plan Founder Art Ally: ‘Biblically Responsible Investing and Spending is a Cultural Necessity’ Decries end of funding for Christian Athletes
ORLANDO, Fla.—Timothy Plan founder Art Ally released the following statement today regarding Chick-fil-A and its recent announcement about the future giving priorities of the Chick-fil-A Foundation.
“At first blush, I am very disappointed in Chick-fil-A, which, for whatever reason, chose to stop its longstanding financial support of the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes—two of the most effective ministries in our nation—and, instead, is redirecting its charitable giving to more politically correct organizations,” Ally said. “In doing so, Chick-fil-A has betrayed millions of Christ followers across America who have wrongly been labeled ‘haters’ by LGBTQ activists.
Why Chick-Fil-A ended support for Christian athletes
Chick-fil-A has apparently turned its back on the very group of loyal customers who have stood by them and helped make them the No. 3 fast-food restaurant chain in the nation. These consumers may choose to spend their money elsewhere, as they did by boycotting Starbucks and Target, which cost those corporations billions of dollars. Biblically responsible investing and spending is a cultural necessity. We hope that Chick-fil-A executives will reverse course before it’s too late.”
Do you think that Chick-Fil-A will appease the radical activists or will this encourage them more? What would you do if you were a top exec at Chick-Fil-A? Tell us in the comments section.
