What Chick-Fil-A’s money supports – a video montage of homophobia

Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters: What Chick-Fil-A’s money supports – a video montage of homophobia

Watch videos & read words that help to analyze, & refute, inaccuracies lodged against LGBTs by religious conservatives & others, concerning Chick-fil-A’s money going to anti-gay causes & organizations including those that advocate (quite successfully in certain countries overseas) for THE DEATH PENALTY for gay people. Lies purportedly said “in the name of God” are still lies.

Business bets on gays.

Business bets on the gays – SFGate

More than 70 of America’s biggest companies filed an amicus brief that opposes the antigay Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), including Nationwide Insurance, Xerox & CBS.

Old-line brands like General Mills & Nabisco have taken similar stands in favor of gay rights; others like J.C. Penney & Target are featuring gay-themed ads.

Polls now show support for gay & lesbian rights–including same-sex marriage–is favored by a clear majority of Americans, with that support growing exponentially.

Romney praises Israeli health care system

Romney praises health care in Israel, where ‘strong government influence’ has driven down costs

Comment: So …. Mitt likes Romneycare, Israelicare……..and, I presume, Obamacare, if he were only honest with himself and with America. This further shows that the man is really a basket case psychologically and/or politically. If only more American voters would see that !!

Gay Olympians competing at 2012 London Olympics

Gay Olympians Competing At 2012 London Olympics

Unfortunately, gay male athletes are more reluctant to come out before, at, or after the Olympics than are lesbian athletes. Facts that help to prove my point: The ratio is 3 out gay men to 19 out lesbians at the 2012 Olympics. Compare that to the ratio of out gay men to out lesbians in the general population. Why is this?
