Two gay hoteliers in New York who recently hosted a discussion in their home for Republican Presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz are being boycotted by many in the gay community.
Amongst those participating in the boycott is Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS who canceled a fundraiser at the men's hotel, The Out NYC, claiming that "when any politician publicly holds in contempt so much that BC/EFA stands for and the very people who we are committed to embrace, we cannot be seen or misunderstood as standing with him/her.”
Interestingly, however that only applies if it’s a Republican Presidential candidate. We have learned that Broadway Cares' largest annual fundraiser, Broadway Bares, will be held at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom, which is owned by the Unification Church, otherwise known as the “Moonies.” Considered a cult by many, the organization has been called heretical, antisemitic and is regularly accused of brainwashing its members.
According to its Wikipedia page, the Unification Church believes that “original sin causing the fall of man at the beginning of human history was, in fact, inappropriate sexual relationships that corrupted true love. The church does not give its marriage blessing to same-sex couples. The Unification Church excludes AIDS victims from marriage blessing ceremonies.”
The Unification Church does not permit homosexual members, and their founder noted, “Free sex and homosexuality is not allowed by God, no drugs or alcohol." So, why is Broadway Cares OK with writing them a check, yet not standing with gay Republicans?
