Chick-fil-A admits it’s anti-gay. Phelps’ defend them.

Hey, at least we have it on the record.  I’ve seen that business in airport – at least now I know that the talk isn’t just talk. It’s an evangelical business that doesn’t like gays.  Good.  Then we and our friends don’t ever have to go there.

The asses even invoked the hateful “Adam and Steve” line.

From the LA Times:

Chick-fil-A is “very much supportive of the family,” according to Dan Cathy, president of the popular fast food chain. That is, “the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said.

And that doesn’t include Adam and Steve, suggests Cathy, whose father S. Truett Cathy founded the Atlanta-based company.

In a new interview with Baptist Press, Cathy puts on the record what critics say his company’s actions have indicated for years. “Well, guilty as charged,” he said in the interview when asked about Chick-fil-A’s backing of families led by a man and a woman.

I can’t wait until they discriminate against one of their gay employees in a state that has legal protections. These quotes could prove quite useful in a multi-million dollar discrimination lawsuit.

This, from Jeremy at GoodAsYou, is priceless – and he’s confirmed it’s actually from the Fred Phelps klan.

This is the kind of the hate the Bible sadly helps feed. Bottom line is that modern translations of the Bible all tell people to kill gays. They do. Pretty much all of them. And I don’t care if it’s a wrong translation or what. Churches across America have no problem using a book that tells their parishioners to go out and kill gay people. And we wonder why we have a problem in America with bullying, and more generally, hate.

Dan Savage was right.
