After the Chick-fil-A saga highlighted the group Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Iowa American Atheists shared a post today on its Facebook page highlighting that the FCA is “anti-gay.” While some will suggest the FCA holds an “anti-gay” view on marriage, it’s best described as the biblical view of marriage.

“Does your local public high school have a Fellowship of Christian Athletes,” it asks. “Does your school have a nondiscriminatory policy or anti-bullying policy? Your school may have a problem.”

Not only do public schools have an “anti-bullying” policy in Iowa, but many private, Christian schools in Iowa do as well.

Iowa American Atheists pointed out FCA’s national statement of faith, which says “God instituted marriage between one man and one woman as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman.”

Iowa American Atheists is capitalizing on the Chick-fil-A move to highlight the FCA’s “audacity” to have a biblical sexual ethic and view on marriage.

“As we watch Chick-fil-A stop funding and distance themselves from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes because of their anti-LGBTQ bigotry, we have to wonder why our public schools embrace and support this club. A religious club is fine, a club that is known to bully students and violate their Constitutionally protected rights is not.”

The group encourages people to let their school know how they feel about the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
