This is so not the news we want to hear!!
It has just been revealed that the restaurant Chick-Fil-A is sponsoring two marriage conferences in Pennsylvania that will be run by the state's most prominent anti-gay, anti-equality group.
According to Change.org:
"The Pennsylvania Family Institute has been a leading opponent of marriage equality, and has condemned the expansion of civil rights for same-sex couples. Speaking to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the group's president, Michael Geer, said that gay marriage is not moral, and should be put up for a vote rather than decided by courts or legislatures.
The only way that we can get the people to decide this issue is through the ballot box. Marriage as defined as between a man and a woman has proven to be the best for the health, education and welfare of children."
And apparently this is mild comparing to Geer's previous statements where he's refused to accept gays as equals.
These words are hateful and destructive.
Shame on you, Michael Geer and shame on Chick-Fil-A for supporting him!
