Chick Fil A And Conservatives And Republicans: Again On The Wrong Side Of History!

Witnessing so many conservative Republicans going out of their way to support Chick Fil A’s owner in his anti gay contributions to various hate groups against gay rights and gay marriage boggles the mind!

It is NOT so much an issue of whether the Chick Fil A owner is against gay marriage based on his religious beliefs. It is the fact that he has spent millions in support of hate groups who wish the worst for gay men and women in their daily lives!

And for people such as former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Minnesota Congresswomen Michele Bachmann, and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, along with Fox News Channel talk show hosts and Rush Limbaugh, to demonstrate that they have no issue with the hate groups against gay men and women, proves once again that conservatives and Republicans are on the wrong side of history!

The same element, much of it very “religious”, opposed women’s right to vote before 1920; demonstrated anti semitic views over a long period of time; fought against civil rights for African Americans with bloodshed and violence; and have been actively involved in promoting discrimination and hate against undocumented immigrants, particularly from Latin America.

Conservative Republicans and conservatives in the news media never seem to realize what they are doing–or do they? We would like to think they are “misguided”, but the more one thinks about it, the more one has to come to the conclusion that they clearly KNOW what they are doing, and that liberals and progressives must continue the fight for justice, humanity, and common decency, knowing that they are doing the will of any truly “religious” person in fighting against hate and prejudice and discrimination!

    Hello Professor,
    Just like the quote from Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra, “It’s Deja Vu all over again.”

    As I have posted earlier, back in the mid-60’s I heard the “Religious Justifications” from many when young, black, Cambridge high school students sat down to pray in the racially restricted lobby of the segregated movie theater. They were arrested and sentenced to six years in jail because that was “God’s Will.”

    Just as that fact of what I lived back in 1967 boggles many contemporary minds today, this same conservative demographics will not see the exact similarities of the current discrimination, oppression, and hate against gays or Latino immigrants.

    I guess my concluding question is how does even this conservative demographic segment not see the repeating patterns they are indulging in? Do they not think past their first gut reaction feelings and question whether it is a Right or Wrong assumption?

    I have to agree with your last statement that a truly religious person would be fighting against hate, prejudice, discrimination and not finding a religious passage or reason to do so.

    Thanks for supporting me at a time when I have been criticized for saying what is true, but unpopular to many!
