Chick-fil-A funds anti-LGBT youth home in Georgia

*

Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A – which once pledged to treat LGBT people with honor after donating millions to anti-gay groups – is again funneling money to anti-LGBT organizations, including one in Georgia that proclaims homosexuality is evil.

So much for CEO Dan Cathy’s charm offensive and pledge to focus on chicken and not anti-LGBT causes.

The company’s charitable foundation made headlines in 2011 when IRS filings showed it pumped millions into anti-LGBT groups. It didn’t help that soon after Cathy dissed gay marriage and criticized LGBT activists. Cathy later apologized, said the foundation would curtail its donations to anti-LGBT groups and promised to use only his inside voice when condemning LGBT equality.

Nevermind that years later, little has changed with the company’s charitable giving. The foundation’s most recent IRS filings show that it donated more than $1.4 million to anti-LGBT groups in 2015, according to Think Progress.

The donations include more than $200,000 to the Paul Anderson Youth Home, which is in Vidalia. The facility calls homosexuality an evil that is caused by the abuse of children. Via Think Progress: (more…)

We nearly spit out our morning tea when we saw this on our facebook page. What kid of fools are these folks.

Yeah you all get the Jerks of the week prize. Keep it up and we just may give it out next week and the week after to you folks again. Get you ideas right. Here is our response on the facebook page.

This takes the cake or make it two for JERKS OF THE WEEK. Who the fuck believes that liberation can come through legislation? That is like saying Hillary Clinton is in the resistance. Stop using revolutionary words to explain away your liberal bull shit. Reform maybe but not liberation. Stop using revolutionary words and ideas to fit your liberal agenda. You are embarrassing those who have come before and causing a massive rolling over in the graves of our martyrs who fought the real fight so people all around the world would be liberated from the likes of evil systems.

To think that the word and concept of liberation would ever fit inside of a state capitol building is absurd. Foolish to say the least. Heads on backwards. Need a new hat maybe. We can tell you as a fact that if you are looking for liberation via the democrat party think again about that evil twin. They may be holding your hand now but remember how they are and can be when in power. But of course we don’t expect any of the folks in the liberal wing of the anti-trump movement to understand any of this. They just hear the words but don’t know the program.

The words of Socialist Feminist revolutionary Gloria Martin comes to my mind when she said, “We have to fight for survival issues–better pay, benefits, abortion rights, child care. But then we have to go further. We have to change the system, because as long as the system is the same, we’ll be fighting all our lives for the same thing….When people have had enough, revolution can happen suddenly.” We would think that the idea of liberation would come in along the line of ” We have to change the system” Most of our readers do not have to be reminded of what our great Black, Lesbian, warrior poet mother Audre Lorde said or what she meant when she said, “the masters tools will never dismantle the masters house.” No they won’t and when we try to use them all we will get is we are tools of the ruling class. Let’s not be fooled by fake revolutionary sayings by spouted off by liberals, let us leave it at that as I am in no mood for a war.

We wish we were going to be home on May 8th. We would go and disrupt this program.

UPDATE: They deleted my comment from their page. I guess they just don’t get it. Now what do you expect?

You deleted my comment but the truth remains. There is no liberation through legislation. Please do not continue to disrespect our Black, Brown and white martyrs in this country and all around the world who fought so people could be truly liberated. I never thought I would see the day when the democrats are considered the vanguard. How soon we forget liberation does not come from the painless activity of state capitols.

One thing about giving out JERKS of the Week awards we will never run out of jerks. Read all about the Pacific Justice Institute and their new crazy attacks. Many thanks to Nick Duffy of Pink News for this article.

Right-wing group claims care homes will be forced to open gay brothels for the elderly.

An anti-LGBT conservative legal group is claiming that religious care homes in California will be forced to operate homosexual brothels for elderly pensioners if discrimination protections are put in place. The surreal claim comes from the so-called Pacific Justice Institute, which is lobbying against a California bill to protect LGBT care home residents. The Democrat-backed LGBT Care Home Residents Bill,  would include explicit discrimination protections for elderly residents “on the basis of a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or HIV status”.

The law, which extends existing anti-discrimination protections, is intended to protect vulnerable elderly people who identify as LGBT encountering institutional homophobia.

But the Pacific Justice Institute claims it would lead to the “nuns caring for the elderly and disabled” being forced to run “bordellos” from their Catholic care homes.

In a letter to the bill’s authors they claimed: “For religiously conservative facilities… this [brings] issues related to sexual intimacy and biology.

“SB219 prevents a facility from restricting a resident’s ‘right to sexual intimacy’ which includes receiving visitors.

“Conservative religious institutions typically hold the view that sexual relations are confined to a man and a woman who are married to each other.

“Is it the Author’s position that a Catholic facility should enable residents to have sexual relations with whomever they please? Such an arrangement would resemble a bordello more than a religious healthcare facility.” The letter continues to claim that forcing care workers to respect the identity and chosen names of transgender people constitutes “compelled speech” that “violates freedom of speech”. It insists that residents who identify as transgender “may have delusions that should not be imposed on caregivers”.

California has some of the most progressive LGBT legislation in the United States.

The Governor of California recently signed a law introducing education about HIV-preventing PrEP drugs into the standard routine for those undergoing HIV tests.

The law ensures high-risk HIV-negative individuals receive information about methods that reduce the risk of contracting HIV, including PrEP and PEP, during HIV post-test counselling

How the hell does a little queer blog like ours pick a jerk of the week when there are so many running around this country. After debating and debating Goosey Bell said, “You know I am getting damn sick and tired of people telling me to get over it!” Trump won, you lost.” Move on. “We don’t want to hear your whining.” “Give the man a chance.”  So Goosey said, “Let’s pick them, for they truly have their heads screwed on wrong, ass backwards, fools at that. ( we no longer speak to 4 family members who voted for Trump and don’t plan to any time soon.) Let’s pick them because here we are members of a targeted class of people who will be in danger from the new regime in DC. Let’s pick them and let them know that we as queers will help to build a forceful united front against this new regime and we will win. No turning back, forward together!

You know jerks of the week, family members, co-workers and others. We have been fighting the good fight since Anne Fielding spoke to us about the Ban The Bomb marches back in 1963 and Freddie’s older brother taught us the song, Oh Mary Don’t you Weep, Don’t you mourn, Pharaohs army got drowned. Yeah we are older now but still got a lot of fight in us.

So the Jerk of the Week or should we say Jerks of the Week Award goes to all of those folks who tell us, some with glee, “to move on, get over it, stop your whining,’ and other stupid statements, who disregard the present and future danger, who will look away and who speak from a place of privilege, you are some of the biggest jerks who have ever opened your mouths around us.

NOTE

Now don’t get us wrong here. We are not and never will be supporters of the democratic party. No thanks! (don’t think we even needed to say that but just wanted to make sure no one would think we cry for Hillary.)

After reading the Guardian’s article about the sponsors of Proposition Q, the effort to ban tents of the homeless from the sidewalks of San Francisco we thought to ourselves, Hey its a no brainier, lets give out a Scum at the top of the heap award. You know how we here at furbirdsqueerly like to give out awards to those we feel should be so honored. So folks join us in giving a revolutionary holler and good loud war hoop for the following Scums at the top of the heap.

Michael Moritz, Sequoia Chairman principle donor to Proposition Q. Net Worth $3.1 Billion

Zachary Bogue Commercial real estate investor. Net Worth $300 million. Husband of Marissa Mayer president and chief executive officer at Yahoo.

Ronald Crawford “Ron” Conway (born March 9, 1951) is an American angel investor and philanthropist, often described as one of Silicon Valley’s “super angels”  Conway is recognized as a strong networker] with the ear of many of San Francisco’s most important decision-makers. Net worth $1.5 Billion.

William Oberndorf hedge fund investor. Beside taking away folks homes read this: Oberndorf’s interest in school choice and education reform is longstanding. Oberndorf is a major donor to the California Republican Party and donated over $1 million to the party and its candidates between 2001 and 2011. William Oberndorf was one of the top contributors, giving $1.1 million to an anti-union effort and to help defeat Proposition 30 which would increase taxes for four years on earnings over $250,000 to fund education.  He was a leading supporter of California’s (failed) Proposition 32, an effort to reform the political influence of teacher’s unions and the best yet this statement “If it is Trump vs. Clinton, I will be voting for Hillary,” William Oberndorf, a California hedge fund manager, told The New York Times.  (oh glory be said the liberal he really is a nice guy and he gives so much of his money to causes and really he is young and handsome he’s one of them nice rich guys) Net worth not found.

Opponents of the measure point out that the proposed law does not include any funding for additional housing or shelters, and the city’s existing shelters have long waiting lists for beds. With Proposition Q, we’re just taking away someone’s tent and making them sleep on the cold concrete,” said Jennifer Friedenbach, executive director of the Coalition on Homelessness. “They’re not going to disappear.”

So if that is the case gentlemen we would say for every tent on the sidewalk you want removed you should pool some of your money, (and you got a lot compared to most of us) and build shelters or permanent housing for the poor. Stop your war against the poor! and please stop your bogus concerns for the homeless folks welfare when you are going to steal the one thng that many of them have, a tent on a city street.

Who are these thugish  men who march against their own brothers and sisters for the banksters and politicians that have stolen from them?  Are they on that much of a power tripping high that they don’t see they are helping the powers that be destroy what is left of their fellow citizen’s civil liberties and rights granted to them by the constitution and bill of rights?  Do they think, in the end, by serving the corrupt they will somehow be saved from the slaughter?  They better think again……~jg

We haven’t given out a Jerk of the Week Award in awhile but here it is. A big jerk who by his words just might get some of us killed. No he is not our friend.

“If someone is gay… who am I to judge?” Well, Pope Francis, you just proclaimed judgment against the LGBT community… again.
While Pope Francis has expressed much kindness and tolerance toward the LGBT community, he is by no means a supporter of LGBT civil rights. On…
