Granted, I am as tired of the chick-fil-a debate as everyone else is but I did a little research today on just what organizations they give to and what those organizations support/don’t support. Below is a list of of the organizations they gave to and what they stand for.
Eagle Forum: The organization is opposed to the legalization of abortion, against international oversight from the United Nations or the International Criminal Court, supportive of English-only education in schools, supportive of women’s role as “fulltime homemakers“, and opposed to same-sex marriage. Circa 2006, Eagle Forum began preparations to fight the introduction of the amero Northern American currency. They support those saying Christopher Columbus is a hero. It has also been active in the anti-vaccination movement, particularly fighting mandatory hepatitis B vaccination requirements for newborn babies, and opposition to sex education in the public school system.[
Focus on the Family: Focus on the Family’s stated mission is “nurturing and defending the God-ordained institution of the family and promoting biblical truths worldwide.” Focus on the Family opposes abortion, divorce, gambling, LGBT rights, pornography, pre-marital sex, and substance abuse. It supports abstinence-only sexual education, adoption, corporal punishment, creationism, school prayer, and strong gender roles.
Family Research Council: The function of the FRC is to promote what it considers to be traditional family values, by advocating and lobbying for socially conservative policies. It advocates against LGBT rights, abortion, divorce, embryonic stem-cell research, and pornography.
Exodus International: Exodus International is a non-profit, interdenominational “ex-gay” Christian organization that seeks to limit homosexual desires. It was founded by Michael Bussee, Gary Cooper, Frank Worthen, Ron Dennis, and Greg Reid. Exodus International asserts that reorientation of same-sex attraction is possible, but warns its members not to go to counselors who claim they can help eliminate all attractions to the same gender. It does not conduct clinical treatment but holds the position that, “reparative therapy – a holistic, counselling approach to addressing unwanted same-sex attraction – can be a beneficial tool.” Techniques “can include abstinence, lessening of homosexual temptations, strengthening their sense of masculine or feminine identity, correcting distorted styles of relating with members of the same and opposite gender.”
I mean, not are the organizations offensive to gays but what about women, people of different nationalities, if you’re in to preventative health, sex education, divorcies, feminists, gamblers (some people do this for a living) – I mean, these organizations offend a NUMBER of people – not just gay people.
Do you agree?
