It's not surprising that NOM's Brian Brown and Mike Huckabee have taken Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy's statements against gays and his company's many donations to anti-gay marriage causes and tried to turn it into a case of gays oppressing Christians, but it is disgusting.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
Daniel O'Donnell, the lead sponsor of the marriage equality bill in the Empire State and the first out gay New York Assemblyman (and brother of Rosie), and Rent actor Anthony Rapp are the latest public figures to speak out in the "Mitt Gets Worse" campaign, formed recently to expose Romney's anti-LGBT past, and his agenda.

Gawker's Rich Juzwiak describes his first two visits to Fire Island. "I'd never gone before because my parents live in a South Jersey beach town, so paying real money for that experience always seemed silly to me – all is a car and a tank of gas and I have a beach house. Furthermore, my former, nine-and-a-half-year relationship was with someone who hated Fire Island on principle. But now I'm single - and so are a lot of the boys on Fire Island. So, why not?"

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Backs Alderman's Plan to Block Anti-Gay Chick-Fil-A from Opening Restaurant
Chicago Alderman Proco "Joe" Moreno says he won't allow Chick-Fil-A to open a restaurant in his Northwest Side ward because of the company's anti-gay worldview, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel is offering his support, the Chicago Tribune reports:
"If you are discriminating against a segment of the community, I don't want you in the 1st Ward," Moreno told the Tribune on Tuesday.
Moreno stated his position in strong terms, referring to Cathy's "bigoted, homophobic comments" in a proposed opinion page piece that an aide also sent to Tribune reporters. "Because of this man's ignorance, I will now be denying Chick-fil-A's permit to open a restaurant in the 1st Ward."
The alderman has the ideological support of Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
"Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values," the mayor said in a statement when asked about Moreno's decision. "They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty."
The proposed restaurant, in the Logan Square neighborhood, would be the second to open in the Windy City.
