August 1st - KFC sales go through the roof.

stop being intolerant of my intolerance and hate, you mean libs :(

Ugh, what a self-aggrandizing piece of shiat that guy turned into.

Sometimes a chicken sammich is just a chicken sammich. I don't care if the person making it beats his dog, watches granny porn all-night, cheats on his taxes, or is a moronic bigot. Everyone's got their own issues to deal with. I just want some chicken.

So there's no difference between a guy who beats his dog and a guy who donates millions of dollars to anti-gay groups, in the name of disenfranchising basic human rights? If you can't spot the difference, or if you perhaps don't care about rights of your fellow citizens, then you deserve all the artery-clogging cholesterol you can shove into your craw.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino even went so far as to tell the Boston Herald that "Chick-fil-A doesn't belong in Boston."

"You can't have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population," he said, according to the Herald. "We're an open city, we're a city that's at the forefront of inclusion."


Hmm. Gays allowed in your St. Patty's Day parade yet?

Clean your own house, Mayor.

Do you ask the opinions of every single employee of the places at which you shop?

Are you willing to have your money go to some low level schmoe's paycheck if he's going to donate that money to Fred Phelps?

The issue isn't that Chick-fil-A's owners have bronze age views about sexuality. The issue is that Chick-fil-A's owners are using their profits to undermine equality.

I can patronize a business with owners that have different political views from mine...in fact, I'm pretty sure I do.

But, the moment I'm made aware of the fact that a business is using the profits that I HELP GENERATE to stand in the way of progress, I'm going to decline to give them my custom.

Seriously, how is Chick-fil-A's announcement that they're funding hate groups different from, say, the neighborhood butcher putting up a sign saying he'll donate 50 cents from every purchase to the American Nazi Party?

Huckabee is the ultimate "have a beer with/would never vote for" guy. Good sense of humor going on the Stewart/Colbert/Conan circuit, I think we'd get along if religion and politics never came up.

That actually might be a well-proportioned, polite response. What is KFC's stance on gay rights?

There must be some electromagnetic pulse that radio broadcasting equipment emits that turns the human brain into a turd-like substance.

I was trying to ignore all this and continue my crack-fil-a addiction, but goddamn if they are going to end up stopping me from going there. If ted nugent starts supporting them, I might have to finally give it up.

"Now, America, the libs want us to *forget* that bucket of... delicious... Chick-fil-A... chicken. Tastiest of the tasty chicken... so tempting. What's that? You want me to eat you? But I'm in the middle of a press conference!"
 
2012-07-25 01:47:22 PM

alizeran: I appreciate how they have no idea how the internet works.

...the chicken sandwich company appears to have made fake Facebook accounts to defend its honor on the social network...


I love how she just posted "John 3:16" randomly at the end of a sentence.

It's like an internet version of turrets...PENIS!

If KFC has any brains at all, they'll jump on this and make a KFC anti Chick-fil-A, pro-rights event out of it.

Sadly, the most likely way to get Americans' attention on social issues is through their cholesterol-laden stomachs.

"Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we're considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant."

What the fark is this guy talking about? Corporate statements in favor pf profanity?

That's their legal cover, sure. There are other ways to influence. The decision says the Allied War Veterans Council doesn't have to let them in. It doesn't say they can't.

I didn't intend to to distract from the Huckster. But I hate grandstanding.

Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for not being evil, but if Christian affirm being evil, we're considered evil.

Well, yes. Words have meaning. Someone who says "I support same sex marriage" is not being intolerant. If your views are antisocial, people having the opposite of your views are therefore NOT antisocial. English, do you speak it motherfarker?

If you're only going to spend money on socially responsible companies, you're going to end up with a lot of money and nothing else.

That being said, Chick-fil-A Day? This jackass needs to shut up.
 
2012-07-25 01:50:22 PM
IMHO
The main 2 reason why the religions various holy books tell their followers not to have gay sex is first to make more babies (not needed anymore) and second so that converts will not go back to their old religion (also not a problem now). The place where you find the most problem is when later scholars reinterpreted the original texts. [I also see Paul as a scholar for the new testament whose writings do not belong in the bible]

Here's a report that Huckabee's invitation mysteriously disappeared from his FB page: Link

I don't use FB so I can't check. Is it really gone? I haven't found any other reports on this.

I'd settle for socially benign, a-political companies.

And guess who's making the decisions about who to include.

Go ahead, guess.

As an aside: if the KKK of Boston was given leave by the US Supreme Court to exclude black and Jewish participants in their public events, would you blame the City of Boston for the lack of gays and Jews in their exhibitions? I mean, after all, the Supreme Court didn't say the KKK of Boston doesn't have to let them in.

This is getting right to the heart of the issue; People who oppose same-sex marriage see it as an attack on their beliefs and are convinced that if it was legal they would be inclined or even forced to run to the local airport bathroom for the sodomy they have been trying to avoid all their lives.

I suppose I shouldn't have given you the easy way out.

I mean, why answer the question when you can just give a flip response, right?

In any case, I'll assume you CAN'T answer the question seriously because you've done everything possible to avoid it.
