Chick-fil-A And The Conservative Appropriation Of Christianity As An Anti-Gay Wedge

“There is nothing about the Chick-fil-A controversy that has anything to do with so-called ‘religious freedom.’ The company donates millions of dollars yearly to organizations that actively work against the safety and health of LGBT people. Its president preaches that gays and lesbians should be scorned as ‘twisted up stuff’ who ‘invite God’s judgment’ upon society. These are all actions with direct consequences for LGBT people, and religion in no way justifies them. Certainly, many who identify as Christians—including many LGBT people—see Chick-fil-A’s anti-gay principles as foreign to their inclusive faiths, but their voices are largely absent from the public conversation.”
