Conservative readers respond to Chick-fil-A controversy and 'drama-queen assertions'

A few messages emailed to me and posted on Facebook regarding the Chick-fil-A gay controversy, specifically Equality Florida's assertion that the company "has donated at least $5 million dollars to organizations whose primary focus is to dehumanize LGBT people and to pass laws that treat us as second-class citizens."

From David Kaul of Fair Oaks, Calif., via email:

Mr. Rothaus

Can you quote me something from "Exodus International" that is dangerous to the gay community?

Are people forced to join or contact "Exodus Internation"?

Is "Exodus International" trying to help people who are troubled by they gender identity?  D

From Christopher Lima of Miami, via email:

He has done nothing to gay's and lesbians to deserve such extreme action from organizations like yours. He has not spoken out in hate but only answered to a questioned the way he believes in. He has the right to his opinion without having groups and organizations like your take up aggression against him and his restaurant chain. If you want equal rights you aren't acting like it. In reality the true hate your groups speak of in fact comes from you. You should be ashamed of such extreme and uncalled for actions.

From Mark Giovanni Sandore of Miami, via Facebook:

This guy Rothaus is a shameless liar, and I sincerely hope that Chick fil A President / CEO Cathy makes an example of him by suing Rothaus for slander. Imagine, accusing Cathy of donating money to organizations that dehumanize Lesbians, Gays, Bi-Sexual and Transgendered. Dehumanizing means what, not agreeing with a politically charged radical left wing position on what constitutes marriage. By simply holding to an alternative viewpoint the intolerant left levels hate allegations, and vile, slanderous, and presumptive invectives at good and decent Americans that simply hold to a different viewpoint. The Miami Herald has no absolutely no representative voice for any other viewpoints other then Counter Cultural, Anti-Christian, Anti-conservative, New Age and Radical Left Wing, rabble rousing slanderous nuts like Rothaus. When I say "nut", just read some of his articles from the past, replete with drama-queen assertions, spewing undercover hatred while trying to pretend there is a LGBT hater around every corner. Instead of picking on real haters he picks on good, productive citizens that simply hold to a different viewpoint then he. A shameful and reprehensible human being.

Well, Steve... Do you have a reply?

Readers, feel free to join the discussion!

If companies are people and people vote with dollars then the destination of the restaurant’s donations are open for public debate. It very well should be an issue as to where peoples’ hard-earned money goes after the chicken goes down their gullet. This issue has made our little feathered friend the modern martyr as Chick-fil-A laughs all the way to the bank. Watch the poultry be nailed to the cross and pierced by the spear of destiny at the hands of those devious cows on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08/holy-rollin-poultry-on-cross-chick-fil.html

Now that the tea party evangelicals are finding themselves isolated in their beliefs, they threw the nation's first ever "Anti-gay Pride Parade"

Instead of tight jeans and speedos, we will wear long sleeve shirts in the 105 degree weather. Instead of marching, we'll sit idling in our 12mpg SUV's supporting the terrorists our sons are fighting, while our waistlines grow. Instead of Lady Gaga, we'll sing "God Bless America" because only Republican, evangelical people believe in America. We are the Moral Majority, but darnit, we are a persecuted minority!! I mean, uh, I'm not afraid to admit I'm a Christian, oh wait, uh, eat a CFA sandwich, or the terrorists WIN! Because in a post 9/11 world, you have to fight those gays in the food court so we don't have to fight them in a fashion show! The next thing you know, they'll turn our good, christian churches into Starbucks, and our gun shops into Abercrombie & Fitches!

My friends and I refer to the chain as Chic Felatio and that doesn't sound like anything we would enjoy.

If Chick-Fil-A's CEO said something about interracial marriages being wrong according to his biblical views...

...would you still come to the defense of the corporation??

Christianity isn't about bigotry, people - but men who pose as Christians often make it so.

Edward, that's a "what if".

And I have yet to hear any viable arguments about the messages sent.
