Celebrities Speak Out Against Chick-fil-A’s Anti-Gay Stance

Chick Fil A Anti Gay

Find out what Christians, actors and drag queens are saying about the fast-food organization’s anti-gay marriage stance.

From the Hollywood Hills to the Bible Belt, everybody’s squawking about Chick-fil-A today. President Dan Cathy‘s recent admission that the company is “guilty as charged” of promoting the “biblical definition of the family unit” has drawn ire from countless pro-gay individuals. Even actor Ed Helms vented his disgust towards the company — a big surprise, considering his Hangover movies rely heavily on homophobic humor for cheap laughs — on his official Twitter account.

“Chick-Fil-A doesn’t like gay people?” Ed tweeted July 19. “So lame. Hate to think what they do to the gay chickens! Lost a loyal fan.”

Twitter and Facebook have since blown up with various responses from both ends of the spectrum, but in times like this, I think it’s best to consult the drag queens. I’m talking, of course, about the cross-dressing trio Willam Belli, Detox and Vicky Vox, who released a hilarious (and surprisingly pro-Chick-fil-A) music video back in March.

In a nutshell, Chick-fil-A is delicious, so it’s totally acceptable to indulge — even if you’re gay! The video is as awesome as it is unsafe for work. Enjoy:

I hardly think it’s a surprise to anyone that Chick-fil-A believes a marriage should be between a man and woman. They are conservative and have not tried to hide it in order to make more money. They obviously don’t care about making top dollar because they are closed on Sunday. This is just a matter of gay people causing a stir. I will be eating Chick-fil-A as usual. By the way, who is Ed Helms anyway?

To Ed Helms: I’m a fan of your work on The Office, but I don’t think I’ll be supporting YOU any more. Chick Fil A did not say they don’t like gay people. The CEO doesn’t support gay marriage; he believes in traditional marriage. That’s a far cry from saying he doesn’t “like gay people.” You and the rest of Hollywood need to grow up and quit trying to force the gay lifestyle down our throats.

They give money to MANY groups with anti-gay agendas…it’s not just about marriage….which DOES qualify him as “not liking” gay people. But of course he is more than happy to take ANYONES money…and then use it against those people he doesn’t like. A minority group would be crazy to give their money to a company just to have that company use it against them, wouldn’t you agree?

It’s funny how the media, the gay community, and politics want to force us to be accepting of gay marriage. Gay marriage has been voted on numerous times and each time the voters have voted against gay marriage yet for some reason it keeps getting overturned. Chick-fil A has always been a Christian based business who even chooses to lose business and be closed on Sunday for church. Our country was founded on Christian beliefs. Good for the owner of Chik-fil A for standing up for what he believes in. We all have freedom of speech. I support his decision. If you don’t then don’t eat there anymore, they won’t go out of business because if this. Thanks Chik-fil A for holding onto awesome values and standing up for what you believe in.

Well the problem is that up until recently, it wasn’t really considered proper to put a minority’s rights up for popular vote. Had that been the case in the 60s, I imagine many african americans would have no rights even today, especially in the southern states. That’s why these thing tend to get overturned…it should never be the case that a minority’s rights are dictated by the majority…especially when the only justification is a religious one. People have the right to believe what they want…if you aren’t gay, then don’t be gay, but you shouldn’t have the right to vote you prejiduces against people who don’t believe as you do into law. The sad things is that some people are content to be free to live as they want and believe as they want…some people aren’t satisfied until they can try and force others to do what they want, regardless of their own bliefs.

People ARE allowed to have opinions that are different from Hollywood. It is still a free country. You people are the biggest bullies of all trying make EVERYONE think exactly the way you do.

Leave Chic-fil-a alone, Bullies

Posted at 3:55 PM on July 19, 2012  

The Gay community is becoming like Scientology. You cannot bully someone into your way of thinking. They have a right to believe in whatever the F they want.

This company has always been a Christina based business that even closes on Sunday for worship. How dare you shove your own views down their throat.

You catch more flies with honey than vinegar. The Gay community needs to edit their approach on educating people.

I will make it a point to eat there every day as long as i can eat the food to support them.

Wow, I find it a little funny at how intimidating drag queens, the liberal media, the President and others who support gays rights are protesting, sending out death threats writing things on facebook,tweets etc. Fact is God designed marriage between 1man and 1 woman. You may be able to do your own thing and you will give account for your life,no matter what chick fil a says,or the media,or any politician.God DOES NOT change HIS mind.P.S. Before you judge me too. I have 2 homosexual family members. I love them and enjoy spending time with them. Peace to you.

“God designed marriage between 1man and 1 woman. “Bwahahaaaa!!!

Until recently, marriage was not just between a man and a woman. Some man can have multiple of wives. A lot of Biblical characters had multiple of wives, lots of slaves and cannot eat shell fish. My point is, the book known as the Bible, was not written by God. It was written by humans with a limited view of the world. How else do you explain their limited geographical knowledge and the galaxy beyond our planet Earth?
Stop believing in that crap!

but you don’t believe your two homosexual family members that you love deserve the right to get married?? Wow, you really do love them. They are so lucky to have such a supportive family member.

LOL You think because you have a couple gay family members that it makes it ok? I think it makes it worse…if you know these people and truly like spending time with them, then you should know they are just like everyone else and deserve the same rights as anyone else. The fact that you know gay people and still have a narrow minded attitude only makes you worse. At least someone who doesn’t think they know anyone who is gay has an excuse for their ignorance.

For all these people that just recently started protesting Chick-fil-a
Because of their stance on gay-marriage, Chick-fil-a was started by Chistians & still has Christian values. Why do you think their closed on Sundays? Anyways, I guess the point I am trying to make is that Chick-fil-a has always been Christian, haha it’s kind of late to start protesting their values now. Haha, also while I think some people might be mad, most people will continue to eat their chicken:)

Emma, think about what you posted. Gay folks are also God’s creations. And if God has no problem with Gays, so who are these Christians with Christian values to say anything? And to be discriminatory and prejudicial towards people is NOT a Christian thing to do. Jesus would never speak out against anyone.
