“Turning a chicken sandwich into Public Gay Enemy Number One makes LGBT people look superficial, vindictive and juvenile — everything that we as a community have worked hard to overcome. Remember, employers don’t want drama queens on the payroll, military service is serious business, and marriage is not a right society grants to spoiled children. While in a perfect world our equality should not depend on our good behavior, in a world where our rights too often hinge on political reality, the way our movement conducts itself matters.
“The ‘movable middle’ moves both ways, and they don’t like seeing people attacked relentlessly for their religion. Whatever the nuances, these voters see a man standing up for his beliefs against a politically powerful mob dead-set on driving him out of business. It’s un-American, and when fellow conservatives are finally standing up and speaking out for marriage equality as consistent with the sober values of responsibility and commitment, splashing a popular American company with metaphorical chicken blood in protest is nothing less than friendly fire.”
Cooper just happens to forget and in no way mentions the millions upon millions of dollars that Chick-fil-A has donated to anti-gay hate groups including the ex-gay group Exodus International as he kisses the asses of his Right-Wing Masters.
To put it bluntly R. Clark Cooper is an asshole. He always has been, and always will be. And the same goes for all members of The Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud. They will always be business and finance first and the LGBT community second.
To them equality be damned just lower taxes and increase business profits.
Old bullethead is right about one thing though. A chicken sandwich shouldn’t be Public Gay Enemy Number One.
It should be self-loathing, traitorous, Auntie Tom “gay republicans” like R. Clark Cooper who’ll sell out their own community and happily take a seat at the back of the bus by backing a political party that loathes them for a few more dollars in their bank accounts and a pat on the head.
