Reagan Stewart: They are no longer selling chick-fil-a

I wanted to bring the attention a concern that have arisen that I find deeply concerning. I 'm sure you are aware of the controversial stories in the media lately about Chick-Fil-A. It deeply saddens me to see that the school my daughter attends is still selling their product each and every Thursday morning. I'm well aware of the views that the president of Chick-Fil-A Dan Cathy has towards the LGBT community. I have no issue with that. This is a free country and his opinions are free for him to express. My issue is that his company is actively donating millions of dollars to certified hate groups like(The Family Research Council (FRC) )that are actively seeking to promote discrimination towards and lobbying for legislation against the LGBT community. Every Thursday that I drop my child off at school we have to see that the school is supporting these organizations. Although the school is not actually donating money to known hate groups. The school is helping to do just that. As you are aware there are many citizens in this county that identify as part of the LGBT community and some are students and faculty in this school system and some are friends or family members. I find it very insensitive that Paulding county refuses to acknowledge this issue and continues to use Chick-Fil-A for its fund raising. That's why I feel I must bring this to your attention.

I'm asking for the immediate removal of all connections to this company until the company can remove the donations to these know certified hate groups. I have no issue with the opinion's of these people I just have very strong feeling of our school system indirectly financially supporting them. We feel it sends the wrong message to the youth of this county especially the LGBT youth. I'm sure that the community has other companies that would be willing to support our children's fundraising needs without alienating some of the student body, faculty and parents. It would go a long way to supporting the rights of the student, staff and children that don't believe in this injustice.

      I don't support prejudice of any kind. God does not legislate issues such as pro-choice and LGBT marriage. Why do other people think they can cram their beliefs down everyone's throat.
