"Gay marriage is a non-issue and just not that important to the majority of this country."
You have the right to your opinion but that's an extremely callous, cold-hearted statement. All Americans should enjoy equal rights and benefits. Gay people, currently, do not.
When was the last time you saw so many “Christians” lining up in public to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked or visit the sick and imprisoned? After all, while Jesus never said a single word about gay anything, He did expressly ask His followers to do these things. Matthew 25:35-40 Instead, they ignore Jesus and go forth with smug self-satisfaction and feed themselves in His name.
Cathy can say what he wants, but large sums of profits go to American groups that are ginning up anti-gay rhetoric in Africa, supporting local legislatures that want to legalize the EXECUTION of homosexuals. Hardly a benign position and certainly not Christ-like, no?
No one is trying to silence Cathy. Period.
It's not just same-sex marriage. Your harmless purchase of a Chick-fil-A sandwich supports legislation calling for gays to be executed. Chick-fil-A gives to both of these groups:
Exodus International: Exodus International Board Member John Schmierer began his trips to Uganda in 2009, preaching alongside Nazi revisionist Scott Lively, spreading hatred of gay people to the people and leaders of the country. This directly led to their legislation requiring the execution of some gay people.
In Schmierer’s future trips to Uganda, he would whip up anti-gay furor with lies linking homosexuality to child abuse, calling for mandatory “conversion therapy” for homosexuals and any other number of falsehoods he could come up with.
Family Research Council: Not sure where to start. Let’s start with a Tony Perkins quote:
“While activists like to claim that pedophilia is a completely distinct orientation from homosexuality, evidence shows a disproportionate overlap between the two. … It is a homosexual problem.”
— Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, FRC website, 2010
There are literally dozens of other moments where FRC and Focus on the Family link homosexuality and pedophilia with zero reputable evidence.
In 2010, The Congress was considering a public condemnation of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays Bill” which would put gay people on trial with a possible death sentence as punishment for homosexuality. Family Research Council spent $25,000 lobbying Congress to not disapprove of this bill.
FRC and FotF have also fought hard against anti-gay adoption laws, so it can safely be said that they would rather see children spend their whole lives in a foster care system than find a forever home.
