Let's remember this is the same guy who got up onstage with Ted Nugent. I don't really think you can sink any lower than that.

He left that "yeah but you have to admit, he's a charming, likeable guy" thing behind some time ago. Now he's a Fox Minion and they know what they have to do.

Maybe "Mike from San Francisco" can call in to tell him good job.

Diogenes: Then how do you propose we confront legalized discrimination? I'm not blaming the Mayor for the discrimination. I'm suggesting he check himself. I'm blaming him for grandstanding.


I hope you realize that you didn't put it that way initially.

You seemed to blame the Mayor for not defying the US Supreme Court's judgment in Hurley.

Yep, keep hammering someone for using their first amendment rights to do something other than support your views. That, or you could take the high road and simply keep speaking your own views, but whatever floats your boat.

Aarontology: DeltaPunch: mysticcat: 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.

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?


Well that's a crappy argument. Because it's unrealistic to know what EVERYONE does with their money, you shouldn't boycott the one person who HAS made it perfectly clear that he's donating your money to anti-gay groups? I support gay rights, C-f-A money goes to anti-gay groups, therefore it's out of the question I give them my money. Why is that even issue?

I've found in these threads that a lot of people support gay rights, but "omg chicken biscuits are soooo good!11!" You can place everyone into one of the following groups:

1) I don't care about gay rights, so I'll keep eating there.
2) I do care about gay rights, so I'll stop eating there.
3) I care about gay rights, but can't stop because it's soooo good. Don't worry I feel bad! (which is a little pathetic)
4) I like to sh*t on people in group 2) because I myself am in group 3) and want to feel less guilty about my patheticness.

Diogenes: eraser8: Diogenes: The decision says the Allied War Veterans Council doesn't have to let them in.

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.

Then how do you propose we confront legalized discrimination? I'm not blaming the Mayor for the discrimination. I'm suggesting he check himself. I'm blaming him for grandstanding.


I would argue that legalized discrimination (within private groups, such as Augusta National Golf Club or the Ku Klux Klan) is an expression of the 1st Amendment right to freely assemble (and implicitly associate). While there is nothing illegal about assclowns being assclowns, I feel that it's perfectly acceptable to call said assclowns out for being assclowns.

Chick-Fil-A's owners and management have every right to believe what they choose to believe. If they control the majority of the company, they have every right to use that money in legal ways that maximize their marginal utility. And I have a legal right to NOT send them money.

The damned Chick-fil-a near my house always has a damn line all the way around the building for the drive through and the inside is like 10 people deep on 4 registers. The food is ok (its fried chicken on bread with a pickle) but it isn't that good in my opinion to constantly have that many people there.

How is a boycott affecting first amendment rights? If a company is promoting an agenda I disagree with it's not my job to support them. That's like saying "Donate to your local parish. I don't care if you're an atheist do it or you're trampling their religious freedom."

Absolutely. And it's dopey of the Mayor to claim he has the authority to ban the restaurant from his city.

To clarify my own words (should have done so earlier), I am only in support of private groups exercising their right to pick their own members/beliefs. Any group that allows the public to join or serves the public or is related to public service should be sued until bankrupt for that crap.

Okay: Starting a private club that's for X only, and serving dinner to X only members at a closed location

Not Okay: Starting a restaurant that allows anyone off the street to come in and eat, then denying service to X individuals.

Hey, that's genetic. He can't help it. To millions of people, cilantro tastes soapy and metallic. There's some sort of gene that affects how you taste cilantro, and many people of northern European descent don't have it. It's true. Go look it up.

In this universe, however, causes come before effects and not t'other way 'round.

The Jim Henson Company could only be retaliating against Chick-fil-A for that if Chick-fil-A made the first move regarding the toys, and not after the Jim Henson Company issued their statement saying they won't partner with Chick-fil-A again.

retract (like that would help)\

dig the hole deeper

not give to the charities of contention and continue with the other charities he gives to (they aren't all anti lgbt groups)

realize that in a nation with a separation of church and state that if the people want something you can't oppose it for strictly religious reasons, and go to my prior point

step down from his chicken sellin position (like that would happen)
