There have been some people who wondered why we bother with what chic-Fil-A does and why their belief is so important. It’s not about the belief; it’s about them spending millions of dollars to anti-gay groups who wanted to see LGBT individuals with no rights.
It matters to me because I believe that when you’re donating money to anti-gay groups, you’re stating that LGBT people shouldn’t have rights and that they should be treated like some evil beings. It doesn’t matter if you’re for traditional marriage, which isn’t a problem, it matters that you wanted your beliefs to be enforced. That is the issue.
You can believe that traditional marriage is best, but no one has to agree with you. You can hate gays and lesbians all you like, no one expects you to like them. You can believe whatever you want to believe, but to enforce others to your beliefs is precisely what this country isn’t about.
USA has a constitution where it states that no government should recognize religious beliefs, where you’re free to believe whatever you want, speak your mind, and to make your own choice. What is going on is that many religious right wings believe that the country was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs, that they should have biblical laws set in place. While back women didn’t have rights, there was a Jim Crow law of segregation, gays and lesbians were treated like they’re pedophiles or mentally ill. It wasn’t until 1970’s when American Physiatrist Association and many others like them have shown that they’re not mentally ill.
Today has been changing quite a lot; the DADT, don’t ask don’t tell have been repealed. Proposition 8 have been considered unconstitutional. In some states marriage for same-sex couples have been allowed and some states allowed LGBT people to work at jobs without being fired for being gay.
More and more people have begun to realize that LGBT people are just like everyone else. There are some businesses that support equality. More LGBT youths are coming out.
The things that are bad were from people like Nation Organization for Marriage, who believed that marriage would destroy nation or that children would be brainwashed or harmed. People like Sally Kern believed that gays are worse than terrorists.
Yeah, holding hands with the same sex is more terrifying than an ak-47 aimed at your head.
Rick Santorum proclaimed that homosexuals are worse than convicts. There are people who make up crazy stuff about how gays are responsible for some natural disasters or other bad things that happened. Some people tried to compare Gays and lesbians with other stuff like alcohol, drugs, pedophilia, bestiality, etc.
These people are what Chic-Fil-A supports. Their money they donated were to those people who thinks that way. They’re responsible for many gay parents who suffered discrimination at their hand, they are responsible for many gay youths who were bullied or had committed suicide, they were responsible for preventing LGBT people from living their own lives with rights and equality, and they are the ones responsible for many LGBT people who were murdered.
That is why I’m against Chic-Fil-A. That is what I fight against.
