Chick-fill-A funds hate groups?

So the protestors in this video allege. But I couldn't see the hate group. Could you? All I could see was a never ending line of people showing their appreciation for Chick-fill-A's pro-family stance.

Here's what Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A, famously told the Baptist Press on June 16:
"Well, guilty as charged. We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of  the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. We intend to stay the course. We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."

  1. This is nothing to do with the subject of the blog post but it is a comment on something which Dan Cathy said: “We are married to our first wives.” Well, now, we all know, I think, what he means by that. He means that they have never been divorced and remarried. They have never remarried while their ‘first wife’ is still alive. Thus the term ‘first wives’ is not, in any sense, to be taken to mean that they have had a second , or later wives.

    Now consider this text: And he knew her not till she brought forth her first-born son.”(Matt 1:25) Many Protestants take that text to mean that Mary had other children once she had given birth to Jesus and therefore was not a perpetual virgin. Catholics argue that ‘first-born’ should not be taken to mean that Mary had a second, or later, children after giving birth to Jesus. It would seem that Mr Cathy is giving support to that interpretation.
