I don’t think the black church should have gotten involved in this Chick-Fil-A Fiasco.
But it does look like a few churches really lined up to buy chicken to support the movement against gay marriage.
The CEO of Chick fil a started a firestorm of controversy by coming out and saying that he believes that marriage is a union that should involve only one man and one woman.
That led to a big turnout for Chick fil a appreciation day, with millions of people showing up to support the business.
But the move has also gotten some unwanted support from Neo Nazis and top black conservatives, which serves to taint the conversation a bit.
The affiliations with Neo Nazis have been used to bolster the case in support of those who disagree with what Chick fil a has been doing. Chick fil a argues that their disagreement with gay marriage is not a form of discrimination. Instead they argue that the bible tells them that homosexuality is an abomination and that they are simply speaking to their beliefs. Gay rights groups, on the other hand, believe that the disagreement with gay marriage is consistent with a strong bias against the gay community.
“Being against gay marriage is not being anti-gay,” said Project 21 member Demetrius Minor. “The last time I checked, Chick-fil-A wasn’t expressing a desire for gays not to eat at their restaurants or seek employment with them.”
