Sophia Bush: 'Chick-fil-A anti-gay stance an insult to god'
Digital Spy ^ | August 13, 2012 | Justin Harp

Sophia Bush has declared that Chick-fil-A's anti-gay stance is an insult to god.

The fast food chain sparked controversy last month when its president Dan Cathy expressed his opposition to same sex marriage.

Cathy's comments have led to protests by marriage equality advocates as well as demonstrations of support by some conservative groups.

Bush weighed in on the controversy over the weekend, telling E! News that Chick-fil-A's stance against gay marriage should not be tolerated.

"Here's my issue - it shocks me how many people come to their defense, first of all. I'm sorry, it's 2012, if you really think it's okay to deny anybody their basic human right of loving who they choose to love, you can go f**k yourself, honestly. And you can print that, because I'm done. I am so over it," Bush declared.

She went on to express her belief that those of true religious faith should support any loving couple sharing their lives together.

"Be a kind person... The reason I take issue with it is, especially in America, we are told that this is the place - give us your tired, give us your hungry, give us your poor - where anybody of any race, of any belief system, can come and have a shot at the American Dream," she explained.

Bush continued: "Have a shot at equality. Oh wait, unless your skin is a certain color, unless you have a certain sexual preference. That's not what it says on the Statue of Liberty. We are all supposed to be equal here.

"When you use God as an excuse to hate people and you use God as an excuse to cut people down, first of all, I think it's insulting to God. And second of all, you're missing the point.

"Because we're not talking about chicken. We're talking about the fact that every kid who reads that article, every kid who hears that said, every kid who sees a bunch of people wearing confederate flags and 'God Hates F*gs' T-shirts, showing up at Chick-fil-A and eating chicken nuggets, you're telling those kids that they don't matter. And that they're less important than other kids in this country."

She concluded: "My God loves everybody, and if yours doesn't, that's your prerogative, but don't tell me how to live my life and don't tell my best friends that you're going to take away their rights.

"Because I will march you into the ground. I will argue you into the ground. I will petition you into the ground. I will not sleep, I will not stop, and neither will so many people in this country and in this world. It's not right."

The Office's Ed Helms recently vowed to boycott Chick-fil-A as long as the company keeps up its anti-gay marriage stance.

Jane Lynch also slated the fast food chain at the Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr, which aired over the weekend.

I don’t recall any such “God hates” T-shirts seriously reported during CFA appreciation day. Did I miss something? Or did the stoopid Phelps clan invade that event somewhere?

Oh really? Here’s what God has to say about it:

Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

So, if we’re all equal here, then we all have the right to our opinion, even the owner of Chick-fil-A.

The math doesn’t add up. Helen Thomas would have only been 11 going on 12 in 1932, not a college age.

HT’s early twenties would have been in the 1940’s, and that portrait has more of a 1920’s look to it.

And as for what bitterness & hatred inside can do to the outside, just look, or try to, at the aftermath of HT.

My grandmother lived into her nineties but you could look at a photo of her in her teens and instantly recognize the elderly lady as the same person. That’s evidence of a goodly nature and inner beauty for sure.

[Sophia] concluded: "My God loves everybody, and if yours doesn't, that's your prerogative, but don't tell me how to live my life and don't tell my best friends that you're going to take away their rights.

God hates the reprobate (Romans 1:18-32) and His wrath abides on them (John 3:36). He will send them to hell and ultimately cast them in the lake of fire for all eternity (Revelation 20:14,15). He's not to be trifled with. He died to attone for sin, but only faith in Him and His finished work will satisfy Him (Ephesian 2:8,9), not your filthy rags self-righteouness (Titus 1:16,16), Sophia Bush.

March, argue, and petition all you want, Sophie. The CFA dustup has shown that there are a lot more of us than you. And if you can march, argue, and petition, so can we.

See you in the trenches, biotch.

Exactly. “The New Colussus” is a poem by Emma Lazarus, not a definitive statement of American immigration doctrine. Besides, how are homos “poor, hungry, or a huddled mass yearning to breathe free?” All I can see are befuddled asses yearning to breed free.

Whoever this Sophia person is, it’s pretty clear she doesn’t know God.

I’m sure there are scores of Sophia Bush fans (if scores means 3) who get all their political info from “One Tree Hill” actors.

What it really comes down to is people do not want homosexual sex practices taught to their 10 year old boys. Gay marriage unfortunately demands that gay sex ed be taught in the school - and this never gets mentioned. (They are demanding it now.) If it did get mentioned their support numbers would drop. People should bring it up and let the community know what is at stake.

God only knows what they teach - they have one ugly, deviant set of sexual practices, it breeds ugly disease and is not healthy for the body - that is real science.

OPT-OUT!

Chick-fil-A’s stance against gay marriage should not be tolerated.

May I suggest that those who support Chick-fil-A be forced to wear a patch with CFA lettering so that they can be identified easily. Perhaps they should have a microchip embedded for easy tracking. How dare they have opinions. /s

Until three months ago, Barack Obama claimed to hold the position that this woman is rabid over. Why was she quiet when it was a member of her party? Is she using this as a political stunt and perhaps less sincere than she pretends?

Chick-Fil-A has NO gay-marriage stance, as far as I can tell.

The owner of the company says he believes in the biblical definition of marriage as part of his Christian faith.

The homosexual lobby hoped to attack a company to bring more attention to itself. I think they’ve managed to do just that, and in doing so, burned an awful lot of... Well, I wouldn’t call it “good will,” but more along the lines of “I don’t really care” will.

Now, I see these activists as hateful, oppressive, fascistic operatives, and I’m actually rather pissed off at them, as opposed to not really caring one way or another.

And I’m REALLY pissed at the leftist politicians who have tried to make political hay our of this whole thing, by attempting illegal, fascist violations of CFA’s right to trade.
