AFA jumps right in on the phony Chase story

According to the hate group American Family Association; “Chase Bank asks employees' loyalty to LGBT.” The email from these "persecuted" and always pissed off uber Christians continues:
Each year JP Morgan Chase sends its employees a survey asking questions related to management and other non-controversial issues. This year, the survey included very personal questions for the first time. See OneNewsNow [AFA's phony news blog] story here.
As I wrote about on Monday this conspiracy theory is based on an anonymous source — supposedly a friend of Robby George. Despite wide skepticism, George has not produced the questionnaire nor the collateral materials. The entire matter is completely without context. Supposedly the questionnaire asks the employee if he or she is LGBT and whether or not the employee is an LGBT ally. People can choose not to answer questions.

Even if this is true in its entirety, this does not amount to persecution of devout Christians. Ironically, they are protected by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 while, in most states, gay people can be fired or denied a promotion or not hired simply because they are gay. It should be quite obvious that LGBT people and allies will not check the box either. The entire overblown matter amounts to Robby George making mischief. Yet, according to AFA:

This has absolutely nothing to do with banking, but everything to do with intimidation, coercion and bullying of employees who don't fully embrace homosexuality.
Rubbish. Is there a case that these folks can cite of a conservative Christian being denied opportunity at Chase Bank? If they could, I am sure that they would.

The email concludes with a plea to send an email to the Chairman of JP Morgan Chase. They provide a form on their website which leads to a money beg upon completion. They also provide an email address which is actually to the Investor Relations department which means that, after a couple of missives, they will probably change their spam filters.
