I think I've worked out your shtick. It's a clever reverse-troll aimed at highlighting the cognitive shortcomings of bigots, right? Certainly that's the only thing you seem to be accomplishing with any degree of success.

whidbey: Then you're supporting bigotry. Chick Fil A does not have the "right" to say they don't discriminate on one hand while donating millions to groups whose very purpose is to discriminate.


sure they do. And if they act in ways contrary to the laws of Massachusetts, then the state of MA has the right to hold them to account. What Menino does NOT have the right to do is deny them the ability to open locations in Boston because he doesn't like what the President said. That is not supporting bigotry any more than saying that PETA protestors have a right to make themselves heard means I oppose tasty, tasty animal flesh

I don't think so.


Really now?

You might want to cross-reference this list of SPLC's watched groups (which, BTW, the FBI also references in its investigations and links to on their site regarding hate crime) and Chik-fil-a's "charitable" donations (link includes a pdf file of their 990 form)

Note that "family research council" is on both lists, and, if you have been following the SPLC, you'd know that the rest are walking a very thin line. The only way you can weasel out of this is that it's not a personal donation, but he runs the damn company his damn self. He decides to whom they donate.

sure they do.


No, they really don't. And if there is a law on the books which still supports the bigotry they're accused of, then that law needs to be changed.

What Menino does NOT have the right to do is deny them the ability to open locations in Boston because he doesn't like what the President said.

We'll see how far he plans on taking it, then. The fact is that we have the right to have communities free of bigotry, hate and discrimination. And you've admitted that Chick Fil A supports it, so we're done here.
 
2012-07-23 04:55:47 PM  

BraveNewCheneyWorld: whidbey: Oh my god you're going to leave out the whole bit about how Chick Fil A donates to anti-gay groups!

Ok, show me one group they donate to which is trying make sure they have less rights than straight people. The Dawkins atheist advertisements are pro atheist, and not anti religion, so make sure you're consistent with that logic.


FRC

They've donated millions of dollars to two well-known anti-gay groups. Whatever spin you're trying to weave, forget it. They did what they did, and deserve condemnation. Which you aren't doing.

The groups above are against same sex marriages, so anti-same sex marriage is a more accurate description than anti-gay.

They aren't even man enough to 'say bigoted shiat," they'd rather take the chickenshiat way out and donate millions for the "right" to let someone else do the dirty work for them. Clever.

whidbey: The fact is that we have the right to have communities free of bigotry, hate and discrimination.

no, we don't. At least on the first 2.


Well, it's nice to know you don't think so. History would prove you otherwise.

When people get tired of oppressive social behavior, they organize and get rid of it. Personally I would be proud to have this mayor as an advocate against bigotry, hate and discrimination.

14th Amendment- equal protection

Ipso facto Boston can claim that allowing a business with a known discriminatory agenda would violate the 14th. Sure CFA could sue and then I guess we'd find out for sure.

Religious organizations that are devoted to preserving the traditional definition of marriage are not based on hate. Groups that express hatred for those religious organizations devoted to preserving the traditional definition of marriage, on the other hand, actually are based on hate.

Don't even twist my words. I applaud the mayor's decision to fight bigotry. You're welcome to keep thinking that donating millions of dollars to anti-gay groups is just simple "political speech" and that Chick Fil A aren't bigots that need to be called out on what they're doing.

There is a clear conflict of interest when Chick Fil A says one thing and does another.

Which traditional definition would that be? There are so many.
Would you like to defend the traditional definition of property while you're at it? Or maybe the traditional definition of citizen?
 
2012-07-23 05:43:14 PM  

Blue_Blazer: Regarding your last paragraph, I supplier legal protection of all protected classes, however "bigot" is not a protected class, and hiding your bigotry behind religion does mean that all anti-bigotry measures are anti-religion measures. Again, CFA is facing (theoretical) discrimination for bigotry, not because of their religious bent.


There is no laws against being a bigot or talking like a bigot, only laws against actions that a bigot might take. Like discrimination in the workforce.

Personally I accept that I might be wrong about gay marriage and a whole slew of issues, that's why I don't want the government to determine if I'm right or wrong by allowing the government to discriminate against what I simply say.

We dissagree, thanks for the conversation.

You might want to cross-reference this list of SPLC's watched groups (which, BTW, the FBI also references in its investigations and links to on their site regarding hate crime) and Chik-fil-a's "charitable" donations (link includes a pdf file of their 990 form)

Note that "family research council" is on both lists, and, if you have been following the SPLC, you'd know that the rest are walking a very thin line. The only way you can weasel out of this is that it's not a personal donation, but he runs the damn company his damn self. He decides to whom they donate.

Religious organizations that are devoted to preserving the traditional definition of marriage are not based on hate. Groups that express hatred for those religious organizations devoted to preserving the traditional definition of marriage, on the other hand, actually are based on hate.


I know couldn't anyone see that Hitler wasn't anti Jewish he was just pro German.

skullkrusher: whidbey: Ah insults. I must be winning this one. Again.

awww, in the same post where I should be relieved the bigot police aren't going house to house? You precious little thing.


Just pointing out the pattern. And it's interesting to note to what end you'll continue to defend someone's "right" to be despicable human beings and profit from it.

whidbey: And each post you make defends bigotry that much more while claiming to uphold free speech. Just an observation.

only to idiots and liars. Which is it? Actually, it's ok, I won't make you choose.


The least you could do is admit it. You've done nothing in this thread but point out how Chick Fil A has a "right" to behave in a bigoted manner all while pretending they don't. You're on the wrong side of this issue big time. And did I just hear another couple of insults.

So far I'm ahead by 3. :)

whidbey: legally, yeah. Just like you donating to Obama's campaign doesn't preclude you from opening a business somewhere. How it should be

Me donating to Obama's campaign does not equate to donating millions to groups that espouse discriminatory bigoted opinions. Nice try at false equivalence. :)

yeah, it's both protected. Sorry about that.


Yes, I should be crushed that bigotry is protected by law.

Hey, I'm not the one who's all but been going out of his way to continue to defend deplorable behavior.

Plessy v Ferguson was also legal for a good half century.

its not about being "pro-homosexuality".
It's about being opposed to people being mistreated for who they are. That said, it's not the Mayor of Boston's business to punish people for their speech.

If Chick-Fil-A does not abide by the laws of MA when operating there, then the state of MA should do everything in its power to force them to come into compliance or leave the state. Menino doesn't get to make that call based on something the President said.

They're both discrimination, and covered under the 14th Amendment.

You're really flailing here.

a pattern that you began and now want to whine about. Really dude, just cut it out.

Yeah, Chick-Fil-A's President has the right to express his opinion without government recourse just as you or I do. That's the thing about freedom of speech - it doesn't really need protection if it's popular.

whidbey: The least you could do is admit it. You've done nothing in this thread but point out how Chick Fil A has a "right" to behave in a bigoted manner all while pretending they don't.


actually, what I said was that they should not be prevented from opening in Boston because of comments their President made regarding gay marriage. If I've only done one thing in this thread, you should at least get it right

whidbey: Yes, I should be crushed that bigotry is protected by law.


you apparently are. Adults recognize that unpopular speech is why we have these sorts of protections in the first place.

friday13: ultraholland: I'm a dirty, gay marriage-supporting lib who thinks Chick-fil-A is farking delicious. I'm going there right now to eat myself into a shame spiral.

Go to Five Guys. More filling and tastes better. And you won't have to eat in a spiral.


If you want to gorge yourself till you need a stomach pump, try putting Five Guys in your mouth!

Marriage is slavery or so I was told in Women's Studies.
 
2012-07-23 06:14:18 PM  

BraveNewCheneyWorld: Nobody's rights are being restricted. You have the same right to participate in marriage as anyone else, in exactly the same manner. Deviate from that, and it becomes illegal. Just like it's ok for me to use computer duster to clean my keyboard, but it's not ok for people to huff it, as many other people in this thread clearly do.



This is awesome. The best part is you call yourself a libertarian

Which traditional definition would that be? There are so many.
Would you like to defend the traditional definition of property while you're at it? Or maybe the traditional definition of citizen?


I believe that the traditional definition of marriage is the union of one man and one woman in matrimony. Those who want to preserve that definition for religious reasons or out of respect for tradition aren't doing so because they are full of hate. I see a lot of hatred directed at Chick-fil-A. Don't see any hatred coming from Chick-fil-A.
