Last week, Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he was not going to be weighing in publicly on the issue of marriage equality any longer, saying he had learned from his mistakes when his set off a controversy over the issue back in 2012.
Cathy’s new position is not sitting well with Bryan Fischer or Peter LaBarbera, who accused him of selling out the entire anti-gay movement.
“For him now to say I’m going to pull back,” fumed LaBarbera, “seems to be just a complete sell out.”
LaBarbera went on to lament that gay activists are playing hardball while anti-gay Christians are playing tee-ball “and we’re getting wiped out and every time a leader goes silent, you know, he’s hurting the cause.”
“Now I’m wondering,” LaBarbera added, “did Dan Cathy do more harm than good in this whole thing?”
