AFA's Buster Wilson: 'Chick-fil-A is Neutral in the Culture War'
On his radio show today, the American Family Association’s Buster Wilson tried to explain the AFA’s rather inconsistent view of boycotts. As we’ve reported, the organization is attacking gay rights supporters for boycotting Chick-fil-A even as the AFA itself is leading a boycott of Home Depot and countless other companies for backing “the pro-homosexual movement.” According to Wilson, “Chick-fil-A is neutral in the culture war” and is “not trying to influence the culture war, not trying to influence what’s going on in the culture”:
Besides Chick-fil-A’s anti-LGBT workplace policies and president Dan Cathy’s well documented anti-gay views, the company’s charitable arm has given millions of dollars to anti-gay groups. Organizations receiving money include openly and undeniably political, right-wing organizations like Focus on the Family, Eagle Forum, Family Research Council, the Alliance Defense Fund and Exodus International, an ‘ex-gay’ group.
To say that Focus, Eagle Forum, ADF, FRC or Exodus are neutral in the culture war is patently absurd.
In that case, Wilson’s own AFA must be “neutral” too!
