Over at the blend they have a nice big pot of double standard French Roast of Bigotry brewing.
All over the fact, that the Christian owned Chick-fil-A support anti-gay groups with their money. The first clue that Chick-fil-A is owned by a Religious group is that they are close every Sunday.
From Change.org site,
Bet Chick-fil-A wishes this month would end. Over the past few weeks, the restaurant chain's deep ties to the anti-gay movement have been exposed and uncovered by a number of activists,most notably Jeremy Hooper at Good As You. Whether it's Focus on the Family, the National Organization for Marriage, the Pennsylvania Family Institute, or Exodus International, Chick-fil-A ties run deep.However Pam added this line, which I completely disagree with,
Of course, the President of Chick-fil-A wants gay people to share no hard feelings. The restaurant will gladly feed homosexuals gobs of chicken sandwiches, after all. But when it comes to marriage, Chick-fil-A believes strongly that same-sex couples just don't deserve equal rights.
As we wrote about a few weeks ago, Chick-fil-A's charitable arm, the WinShape Foundation, has been particularly active in the fight against marriage equality. They've hosted conferences with some of the leading opponents of gay marriage in this country. A higher up at WinShape has even praised the efforts of anti-gay activist David Blankenhorn for working against marriage equality, and for articulating a solid reason why American culture should reject same-sex couples.
Now comes some email correspondence that Good As You has shared on their blog, where the WinShape Foundation's Retreat Center -- a center run by the charitable arm of Chick-fil-A -- admits that they have a severe distaste for LGBT people.
The email correspondence goes a little something like this. Someone writes WinShape an easy question about whether their retreat center is open to LGBT people. WinShape's response:
They sure like homos to contribute to the bottom line, but no marriage for you...Here we go again forcing our agenda on others, while bitching to anyone whom will listen.
However they also said the follow, which a few blogs have left out, I can only assume that Gay Inc. ask them to leave this part out.
Change org, is I’m sure apart of Gay Inc., too
Yet the President of Chick-fil-A still says that all people, including LGBT people, are treated with respect by the restaurant?However the writer Michael Jones felt that he need to add this comment to the line,
Huh, what a funny definition of respect.So they don’t respect us simply because they don’t believe in same-sex marriage. Yet when we visit their restaurants we are greeted just like everyone else. I don’t think I have ever heard them say Sorry faggot, we don’t serve your kind here, or please use the back door.
What Change Org, and other blogs like the blend does tell you, but I will. I know a Chick-fil-A owner, and She is an Out and Proud Lesbian, she hire LGBT folks too. I guess the community will call her a turn coat or a self hating, loathing Lesbian. Surely would boycott her the Country Club, simply because she a Chick-Fil-A owner.
See even in our own community we have double standards on judging our members. We don’t even have equality within our community..
