Why does this matter?
As SPLC Senior Fellow Mark Potok writes:
These kinds of comments say more about the people who made them than the LGBT community. But, as we document in this issue, they often reflect or stem from false allegations that originate in the hard core of the anti-gay religious right.
No one is trying to force Christians or others who believe that homosexuality is wrong to abandon their beliefs. But believing that the Bible says homosexuality is a sin is an entirely different proposition than lying about gays molesting children or suggesting they should die. Surely, we can all agree that when any minority is demonized and attacked, it damages all our hopes for a civilized society.
The groups Chick-Fil-A support do just that.
