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.

Who is Sophia Bush, why should I care what she thinks and most of all why does this bimbo think she’s qualified to speak for God and what he finds insulting?
My thoughts exactly....Sophia whoooo?
Lighten up Sophie! We don’t “hate” homosexuals! We just don’t want them shoving their sexual deviancy in our faces all of the time. That crap gets old.
No Sofia, what has come out of your mouth is offensive to God.
She’s an out of work TV actress... WHO CARES?
I love it when people preach new age “god loves everyone” junk. (He does but that’s what they mean. They mean everything is acceptable.)
About half the people I talked to at CFlA on August 1, were not there because they agreed but there because they believed in freedom of speech and angered that government agencies were denying permits for businesses because of what someone said.
There was an old guy that had a T shirt printed that said “I am here because I beleive in freedom of speech.
Just another empty headed useful idiot Leftist with a Hollywood add’y shooting off her mouth.
I thought maybe she was another rogue Bush kid, but nope, just another C-list actress trying to make a name for herself with the left to give her career a bump. Sexy, but dumber than a box of rocks.
Just checked my Bible...sure 'nuff, she's right--God's word expired this year. Game on and party hard!! </sarcasm>
I’ll 2nd that. Who or what is a Sophia Bush? Is she related to Harry Bush?
I kept wondering which of the Bush daughters was called “Sophia”.
Anyone who uses the phrase “I am so over it.” lacks any credibility whatsoever. Besides...if she really were “so over it”, then why bother with the idiotic rant?
Why does that sound so familiar?
Does this no talent nobody even know who God is? Is she a Christian or has ever read a Bible? The saying “Give us your gay homosexuals” doesn’t sound familiar. Are they now teaching this in history in public schools now trying to rewrite history?
“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.”
I wish FReepers had not worn their Confederate Flags and ‘God Hates Fags’ Tees to Chick -Fil-A ;)
