Posted: Updated:

Unless you've been living in an end-of-days bunker waiting for the zombie apocalypse, you probably know about the Chick-fil-A controversy that ignited earlier this summer when the fast food chain's COO and President, Dan Cathy, confirmed his support for "traditional" marriage.

But what not everyone realized is that not only is Cathy against gay marriage, but the company itself, or at least its charitable arm, The WinShape Foundation, has donated millions of dollars to anti-LGBT groups, many of which are fighting marriage equality as well as supporting "ex-gay" reparative therapy and other heinous anti-LGBT actions and policies.
