Most of America has moved on from the Chik-Fil-A controversy, but to be gay and leftist is to be perpetually aggrieved. Hence, the latest tantrum from the spoiled brats of the gay left.
Local members of the LGBT community are questioning an Iowa City festival’s partnership with Chick-fil-A, the restaurant chain that drew national protests in 2012 after its CEO spoke out against gay marriage.
Chick-fil-A is among the nearly dozen corporate sponsors for Iowa Soul Festival, an Iowa City Summer of the Arts event that runs Friday and Saturday on the Pentacrest and Clinton Street. The restaurant, through a donation from its Coralville location, is sponsoring Soul Fest’s culinary row.
Janelle Rettig, a Johnson County Supervisor who has been in a same-sex marriage for nearly 26 years, said Chick-fil-A’s sponsorship makes her question whether LGBT people — those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender — are welcome at Soul Fest.
“When they’re a sponsor in a city that prides itself in celebrating diversity, I think we do have to question that,” Rettig said Tuesday. “It’s eyebrow raising, and it makes me wonder if I should even go to Soul Fest because I’m uncomfortable with it.”[...]
Gaia forbid anyone should make a special gay snowflake feel “uncomfortable.”
The director of the Arts Festival proposes a radical solution: If you don’t like Chik-Fil-A, don’t buy their food.
“Festival goers may choose which sponsors and vendors to patronize or visit while attending an event as there are many options available.”
Freedom of choice; what a dangerous and radical concept.
