Chick-Fil-A Continues Supporting Anti-Gay Orgs, Only This Time With Golfing Sports Celebs!

Chick-Fil-A is continuing its anti-gay ways and signed up as a $2,000 lunch sponsor the Citizens for Community Values’ 24th annual Golf Classic in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 6. The event has a $110 entry fee and the CCV is “officially associated” with SPLC-certified hate group Family Research Council (FRC), Focus on the Family (FoF) and the American Family Association (AFA), all of which are batshit crazy have disgusting records of extreme anti-gay rhetoric. Former NFL players Michael Anthony Munoz and Jim Breech will also attend as old-timey athletic celebrities. Bring your nine iron and get ready to bash some queers fund anti-gay campaigns play some holes.

      Having formerly lived in Cincinnati and met both Munoz and the head of CCV, I can tell you first hand that they are the worst of the worst. CCV makes the FRC look liberal by comparison. Munoz is dumb as a rock but made some money in football and now can’t get his ugly face out of the spotlight.

      For the uninitiated, Cincinnati is home to both Speaker Boner and Mitch McConnell as well as homegrown brain trust Mean Jean Schmidt who makes Michele Bachmann look intelligent, and Uber Conservative Mike Pence next door in Indiana.

      While northern Ohio is progressive, forward thinking, and beautiful, southern Ohio, with Cincinnati at its epicenter, is backward, redneck, and like a strainer for the worst aspects of the red state south culminating in a hate filled, segregated, bigot central.

      My family won’t eat there either – and actually, I like their chicken better than KFC. Too bad, they’ll never get any of our money.

      $2000 lunch sponsor? What’s that? A chick-fil-a sandwich that goes for $2000?

      It used to p#ss me off that our local aids support org would use them(‘course, once aids became more of a “bidness”, all those volunteering Gays were 86ed and “professional” Hets took over their positions so it shouldn’t have been surprising…)but I simply stopped going to their support groups and only used their survices if absolutely necessary.

      “Officially associated”? we should be careful with “degrees of separation” because I don’t doubt that most then are “associated” with anti-gay organizations and individuals.

      I once visited a website, Queerty.com, where they officially had an advertisement for Hyatt hotels. And we know that the San Diego Grand Hyatt, owned by Doug Manchester–one of the worst enemies of the LGBT community–has a history of anti-gay and anti-worker policies.

      Oh no, this website is “officially associated” with anti-gay AND anti-worker policies.
