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…
Even if marriage equality activists “won” and Chick-fil-A went out of business tomorrow…LGBT people would have handed antigay organizations a weapon better than money can buy — confirmation that gay people really are the thought police, willing and able to use the power of the state to impose our will on oppressed social conservatives.
— LCR Executive Director R. Clarke Cooper, who for a Republican seems to hate the idea of capitalism… you know, the thing where people choose freely what things to buy or not buy with their money.
Also, Cooper seems not to realize that no matter how “respectable” he acts, certain Americans will always see him as a “queen” because of who he loves. It’s not being the “thought police” to insist that one’s group not be relegated to the status of thought criminals.
"If it’s Romney and Obama, as far as I’m concerned, Satan’s flipping a two-headed coin and his head’s on both sides," Keller says. There’s no such thing as lesser of two evils. "I hear that from Christians all the time: Well you know we’ll just take the lesser of two evils and hold our nose and vote for the Mormon. And I just try to remind people: The lesser of two evils is still evil."
— After big wins in Wisconsin, Maryland, and DC, Mitt Romney will almost certainly be the first Mormon to become a major party nominee. So are the anti-Mormon voices on the right easing up? Depends on who you talk to.
