President of the Anti-Gay Pennsylvania Family Institute Michael Geer is mad as heck and speaking out against all us nasty LGBT bloggers and specifically attacking Jeremy Hooper over at the LGBT Blog As Good As You with blatant lies for making such a BFD about Chick-fil-A’s involvement in an upcoming “marriage conference” that the PFI is running that Chick-fil-A was said to be a sponsor of.
Speaking out to the Christian Post:
“Good as You,” a blog catering to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning community, posted a flyer about PFI’s February event, The Art of Marriage, with a message asserting that Chick-fil-A was supporting the Pennsylvania group and its efforts to take down the state’s gay marriage plans.
The blog has gone so far as to create an online petition against the restaurant company.
Setting the record straight, Geer said Chick-fil-A is not sponsoring the event. “There are a couple restaurants that are giving us food,” he shared. The food, mostly chicken sandwiches, is for a day-and-half-long workshop for couples who want to strengthen their marriages.
According to Geer, the local Chick-fil-A branches involved were simply trying to “be good neighbors” to the marriage retreat being held at two local churches. “We didn’t even get any money,” maintained Geer. The food was freely donated to the churches hosting the marriage retreat.
Geer also denounced mentions in the blog and later homosexual magazine On Top for wrongly suggesting that Chick-fil-A’s corporate office, located in Georgia, is involved in the event. Despite restaurant creator Truett Cathy’s profession of faith, Geer says it was a local decision to give the food
Good As You did not start an online petition against Chick-fil-A although it would be understandable considering that the corporate restaurant DOES have ties to Focus on the Family to the extent where it passed out FOF DVD’s at one point and there are MANY INSTANCES of Chick-fil-A’s donating food to anti-gay groups across the country as I reported here back on August 30th last year when Chick-fil-A “sponsored” Ohio’s leading anti-gay hate group the Citizend For Community Values which has direct ties to to the recognized hate groups American Family Foundation and the Family Research Council. So this IS NOT the first time that Chick-fil-A has been caught doing this.
A donation is a donation, weather it is food or money. Chick-fil-A will be able to declare the cost as a charitable contribution so as any idiot can see, except for Michael Geer that is, it is in fact a donation. In a nutshell Michael Geer is lying.
Nice try there loser.
