Christian conservative Bryan Fisher on Wednesday said that Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is learning the hard way that gay activists are “like leeches.”

In the summer of 2012, Cathy created a firestorm of controversy for saying that marriage equality is “inviting God's judgment on our nation” and conceding that his company gave millions to anti-equality groups.

Fox News' Mike Huckabee organized a successful day of support for Chick-fil-A to counter pro-equality supporters protesting at Chick-fil-A locations. Last year, Cathy criticized two rulings in support of marriage equality handed down by the Supreme Court.

But in a recent interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Cathy said he won't be weighing in on the subject anymore.

A backlash declaring Cathy – whose expansion plans are meeting with resistance in New York – a “sell out” ensued.

“Dan Cathy is learning the hard way that the homosexual lobby, gay activists, are like leeches,” Fischer told his radio listeners.

“The point here,” Fischer said after citing Proverbs 30:15, “is that with the homosexual lobby, you cannot ever give them enough. Don't even try. There's no point in making concessions. There's no point in capitulating. There's no point in yielding to their demands. There's no point in offering them some kind of appeasement in the hopes that they will leave you alone, that they will leave you in peace. It won't work.” (The video is embedded on this page.
