Religious Right Comes Down on Chick-fil-A Over LGBT Support

The Christian right wing's love affair with Chick-fil-A may have ended. A Change.org petition has been launched calling out the fast food giant over their support of number of LGBT-related events and organizations.

The petition, which has garnered a paltry 629 supporters reads:

Per our research and findings, Chick-fil-A is a sponsor of "On Level Ground" (www.OnLevelGround.org) which is "a movement" that "creates space for dialogue about faith, gender, and sexuality through the arts." And upon further inquiry, your sponsorship of this organization supports pro-gay organizations such as:

-The Christian Closet (gay-affirming Christian counseling)
-The Center For Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry (promoting the gay agenda in Christian ministry)
-Therapists 4 Equality (LGBTQ Affirmative Therapy)
-The Reformation Project (an attempt to bring the gay agenda into the church's theology)
-Believe Outloud (an organization to promote gender equality to Christian clergy)

and many other groups that promote an agenda which is contrary to Chick-fil-A's corporate stance on Christian values regarding marriage and stewardship.


News of the petition reached über right wing news outlet World Net Daily (WND), who cited 2012's "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day."

"Christians overwhelmingly gave their support, filling restaurants with new customers who turned out, not only for the food, but to make a statement," WND writes. "That may all be about to change."
