CNS's Starr Targets Corporate Sponsors of 'Gay Activist' Group's Dinner

Echoing WorldNetDaily's longtime obsession with companies who support gay causes, an Oct. 7 article by Penny Starr gives it away in the overly long and cumbersome headline: "Marriott, Comcast, Giant, Hyatt, Food Lion, Macy’s, Chipotle, Hershey's and Other Businesses Sponsor Dinner for Leading Gay Activist Group That Promotes Same-Sex Marriage, Attacks Catholic and Mormon Churches." That would be the Human Rights Campaign, and describing its criticism of anti-gay behavior by the Catholic and Mormon churches as "attacks" is stretching things a bit.

Starr contacted a few of the companies for a response, albeit botching the description of one. She writes that Giant Food, an East Coast grocery chain, is a "a Dutch-owned multi-national corporation"; in fact, Giant is a division of that "Dutch-owned multi-national corporation," not the corporation itself.

Starr also quotes the anti-gay Robert Knight ranting about how "Many corporations have bought into the false idea that people are born gay, can’t change, and that sexual inclination is the same as race," but she gave the corporations no opportunity to respond to those remarks.

Starr is CNS' anti-gay reporter, most recently expressing offense that a city was spending tourism funds to encourage gays to visit.
