In your op-Ed piece entitled “Kissing Pulpit”, you seem to suggest that the supporters of gay equality are staging their protests in support of gay marriage and because they are upset that Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy doesn’t agree with them. You state, “Regarding Dan Cathy – what happened to free speech? Apparently, it’s only acceptable if you agree with the speech.” You are missing the point. While we would all love Mr. Cathy to agree with us, most supporters respect his right to free speech and could care less what his personal views are. What is upsetting is that he uses proceeds from his business to fund the American Family Association. This association has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for its lies and demonizing of homosexuals. So yes, kiss-ins at Chick-fil-A do make sense. The demonstrations are not just to support marriage equality, but to also support homosexuals’ right to exist … A right not in accordance with Mr. Cathy’s pet hate-group’s tenets. To boycott Chick-fil-A is to say we will not spend our money to fund hate speech. I suggest readers take a moment to read up on the American Family Association. If you agree with them, by all means eat your chicken sandwiches. If you don’t, find another restaurant … Or go on a kissing spree!
