Unless you’re a strict vegetarian and completely focused on the Olympics, it’s hard for you to have missed all the flap over how much the anti-gay food chain Chick-Fil-A has been in the news, contributing tons of money to promote homophobia. The owner recently announced how his Christian values guide his choice to do all in his power and pocketbook to prevent marriage equality, but he’s gotten such negative blow back (particularly from younger folks who smell discrimation between the buns), the company has attempted to backpedal into declaring itself “neutral” in the culture wars.

Just so, ThinkProgress has come up with a new graphic to remind LGBT and Straight Allies which major companies take their money in order to contribute to homophobic causes and rightwing attack ads. Check out the sports teams and my former gym–Gold’s.

    In further defense of the Marriot, I would like to share that I am helping plan the 2014 Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Ally College Conference, and it’s taking place at the Marriot in Downtown Kansas City. At no point in this planning process have they shown any resentment, discrimination, or discomfort in having to work with us to plan this event. In fact, they’ve been sweet, negotiable, and open-minded throughout. This is a company that doesn’t wave their biblical views in the face of it’s customers.

      It’s not the point of whether they wave it in your face or not, it’s the fact that their profits go toward funding organizations that practice discrimination. The behind-the-scenes bigotry is the more insidious hatred because it is hidden from view. Of course Marriott is happy to help you plan. A large conference brings in a substantial amount of revenue for them and, even while that revenue is funneled to support organizations that directly oppose the goal of your own, they’ll happily take your cash.

        So people have a right to support the gay agenda but people who support against it are bigots? What is it with you liberals that you think any opposition is hate speech? If you have a right to be gay and support gay, then people have just as much right to not be gay and not support gay, whether it be for religious reasons or just because it’s unnatural and nasty.

          No one is attempting to restrict your freedom to marry. You are attempting to maintain the second class status of a maligned minority and as such are issuing hate speech. Own your actions!

            Go die of AIDS, queen.

              Well, isn’t that special! God told the nice pretty lady to wish for others to die.

            Shitdick fagg0ts ARE bottom feeder class citizens! Who are you kidding?

    • Harvey Milkdud

      Anti-gay isn’t a religious thing. Lots of anti-gay and anti-gay marriage supporters are NOT religious.

      • The Sock Puppets of John Doedy

        You are not required to marry a gay person. You should marry a heterosexual if you are anti-gay marriage. And, if you are anti-gay, stop birthing gays.

    Where did the research come from? I’m just wondering. Most companies stay neutral, but will always give to both parties.

  • Harvey Milkdud

    Paraphilia is way worse than homophobia.
