Chick-Fil-A could advertise the fact that they put pickles on their sandwiches by having an ad where a handsome young man has a stream of pickle juice squirted in his mouth and all over his face.

I also advise gay people to make commercials reminiscent of the old Klondike Bar commercials, where they state that they would suck a dick for some Chick-Fil-A.

Step 1) Go to the restaurant and order some fries.
Step 2) Sit down with your gay lover and lovingly feed each other french fries for a good 30 minutes. Use a lot of free ketchup and napkins.
Step 3) Repeat steps 1 and 2 every day until you get arrested, and then it goes on the news, and then more gay couples start doing it

I see what you're sayin', but...

If'n ya order up then refuse the order because you didn't want your chicken with christian values. The menu says nothing about anti-gay chicken, so you refuse to pay.

I just finished donating $50 dollars to give-a-damn.org, which addresses all the issues caused by homophobia, like homelessness in teens kicked out of their homes for being gay, promoting marriage equality, and addressing healthcare issues.

Originally I was going to ignore it, but today my co-workers started complaining about TEH GAYZ that were going to protest Chick-Fil-A. One co-worker commented that while they were out there, she was going to hit them with her car. When another co-worker said that wasn't very Christian-like, I laughed loud enough to get my point across.

Never going to Chick-Fil-A again. Instead, I estimated how much money I'd spend at Chick-Fil-A in a year, and donated it. They can eat shiat. Today I am just plain angry.

So far they have set new records for sales, millions of people who didn't use them before have switched, and I figure the minimum l0ong term value of the publicity is $1 billion--plus.

If you've been paying any attention, it's not about what an old fogey thinks, it's that this business is helping fund millions of dollars to hate groups. And some people decided they don't want to fund the business that funds the hate groups. There's a big difference between "Oh, I think such-and-such" versus "I'm going to pay millions of dollars to deny you your rights."

I find it interesting - and in a 'sad' way - how the Left attacked the Texas sociologist who said that children raised by gay (both sexes) couples have more emotional problems that kids raised by normal, hetrosexual parents.

Instead of refuting the research they attacked the researcher, in essence to shut to the research.

The owner doesn't like gays marrying, it's not a big deal.
This is typical democrat reasoning. Freedom of speech only applys to people that think like democrats and bow to the democrat agenda.
Instead of going out to dinner tonite, I'm taking the family to Chick Fli A. Nobody ever died from a little fast food but a lot of people did so that Americans could think and speak freely. I don't expect any looney libs to understand the cost of free speech or what happens when you lose it.

satanorsanta: My biggest problem with all of this is it is really making me crave a chick-fil-a sandwich. I disagree with them politically and don't want to be associated with the anti-gay people, but I really want one of their sandwiches. Sure I can make my own or go somewhere else, but it just isn't the same.


I know what mean.

My wife and I stopped eating at Chick-Fil-A over a year ago when we learned how much money they were funneling to Focus on the Family. No fanfare, no bragging to our friends or family, no news crews or blog posts. We just said to one another, "You know, I think I'd rather we didn't help support FotF by eating at CFA, no matter how damn tasty their nuggets and waffle fries are." And we got cravings for the first month or so when we'd drive past, but we got over it.

Now I have to hear about Chick-Fil-A every farking day, and the hunger is driving me insane.

Can I do some kind of carbon-credit thing, where I maybe offset eating a 12-piece and large waffle fry by letting a guy cum up my ass afterwards?

Gato Blanco: I just finished donating $50 dollars to give-a-damn.org, which addresses all the issues caused by homophobia, like homelessness in teens kicked out of their homes for being gay, promoting marriage equality, and addressing healthcare issues.

Originally I was going to ignore it, but today my co-workers started complaining about TEH GAYZ that were going to protest Chick-Fil-A. One co-worker commented that while they were out there, she was going to hit them with her car. When another co-worker said that wasn't very Christian-like, I laughed loud enough to get my point across.

Never going to Chick-Fil-A again. Instead, I estimated how much money I'd spend at Chick-Fil-A in a year, and donated it. They can eat shiat. Today I am just plain angry.

If I were inclined to get technical, I might point out that with a literal interpretation of both the Bible and the Q'ran, both of those statements apply fully to both Christianity and Islam.

In such a technical mood I might also list twenty or thirty similar direct contradictions in both books, or just go dark with it and just pull ten or fifteen explicit demands that Christians murder people from the new testament, easily found at any of a thousand online searchable bibles/q'rans of various translations.

But I'm feeling happy at the moment, so just gonna let you keep on getting down with your gullible idiot self there.

//I would advise that perhaps making religious arguments when you didn't even get halfway through the cliff's notes on either religion might not be the best idea on the internet, though. Even those of us that don't care much have been in enough of those to almost casually flatten you, there.

You're right. I think it's generally poor practice for a business to publicly engage in any kind of political issue. If you make chicken sandwiches (for example), then just make chicken sandwiches & confine your pronouncements to business issues.

If you think I sympathize with them, you misunderstand me. I don't really care much one way or the other. I enjoy seeing people troll one another as much as anyone. It's good sport (in general terms). ...but this is a side-show. Admittedly, the owner of a company will have more cash than your average citizen to donate, but he's still just one donor. He has no authority to set policy, and there are *lots* of rich people out there.

I think it would be more productive to the pro-rights cause to just ignore Chick-fil-A. Take the energy that is being poured into (mostly impotent) outrage and direct it into something positive that can actually win hearts and minds. I'm no political organizer, but when I see a bunch of people foaming at the mouth, it doesn't really inspire support. Rage may be fun to watch from a distance, but it isn't attractive.

This boycott crap is getting out of hand and will ultimately hurt all charities. Corporations donate for two reasons. 1. A tax break. 2. Good PR. Some might even donate because they actually want to do the right thing, but that's difficult to accurately measure. Boycotting a business for political reasons has been around a long time, but has really gained steam with social networking. Eventually a business will have to consider the potential damage caused by their donations and weigh it against the tax benefit and the positive PR it generates. If the dollar value goes in the red, they will have second thoughts about making those donations. And before you say, "good, they're donating to the wrong people", keep in mind this can go both ways. A charity you support might piss off a large enough segment of the population (even if it's over stupid reasons) that they might receive less money. With the way social networking works and the lemming mentality, it wouldn't take much to cause a boycott, even if it is based on a lie.

The guy who owns Chick-fil-A (I forget his name) isn't ordering any fire-hoses to be trained on gays. He doesn't have anywhere near that level of authority. If he did, my opinions would be very different, but we aren't talking about George Wallace here.

In short, whether he back-peddles or not is irrelevant, because he's just not that important. ...unless one is more focused on winning one battle than winning the war (in other words, "How DARE so-and-so defy me! Whargarble!").

If you need a punching bag, there are plenty of politicans who *do* have power to advance gay rights and aren't doing it. Finding a more productive target for action shouldn't be difficult.

It's in Coffman Memorial Union (the student union on the East Bank of the UofM campus). Chick-Fil-A apparently has worked hard to get their stores on college campuses, even when there are no franchises nearby.

And I have to assume the food they serve there is not the standard CFA fare. I've never been to any other CFA, but not only was the chicken sandwich I bought ridiculously expensive (I'm thinking like $4?) but the nasty frozen Tyson chicken fillets you buy at the store are the closest thing I can compare them to.

Have you ever tried Roy Rogers's fried chicken, or (from a decade or so ago when they still sold fried chicken made using the Roy Rogers recipe which they licensed) Hardee's fried chicken? Far and away the best I've ever had. Period. Not just the best fast-food fried chicken. The. Best. Fried. Chicken.


Politicandy: low_dazzle: Isn't the possessive form of Jesus: Jesus'? (as in ...Jimmy Carter, and farting on Jesus' head.)

That's only for plural. If it ends in 's' but is singular it can go either way.


Nope. IIRC, adding just the apostrophe is only for the case of making a possessive out of a plural that is pluralized by adding "s" or "es." In all other cases, including plurals that do not add an "s," and singulars that do end in "s," you add "'s."

• This child's birthday present is a well-known children's game. (plural not adding "s")
• John William and his family live in this house. The Williams live there. This is the Williams' home. (plural adding "s")
• John Williams lives alone in this house. This is John Williams's home. (singular ending in "s")
• John Williams and his family live in this house. The Williamses live there. This is the Williamses' home (pluralized to "Williamses" by adding "es," then possessivized [if that's not a word, it should be] by adding just the apostrophe).

olddinosaur: SpecialK29: whidbey: olddinosaur: WhippingBoy: Would gay people be happy if being gay was regarded as completely and utterly unremarkable?

Libertarians have felt that way for 40+ years, and they hate us worse than the Republitards.

There are plenty of reasons to hate libertarians, actually. Probably not for this reason.

Personally, I hate Libertarians for treating people as human beings (and not as cattle like they are). The fact that they believe adults can make decisions for themselves pisses me off on a deep level.

Don't forget our affirmation of the sanctity of the individual, and the right of all persons to live their lives any way they wish, provided solely that they do not inflict their ways by force upon any other people wishing to do the same.

That would also include gays, collectivists and leftist libtards, BTW.

Yep, sure is a lot there to hate.


And don't even get me started on that whole libertarian 'live and let live' thing. Nothing pisses me off more than another adult doing something in their home that I don't approve of. How can I be expected to live my life when others are doing things I don't like. And these people want EVERYONE to pay taxes? Isn't that what the 1% is for?

Why not? They don't have any others.

It's never been a question of "religious freedom". Nobody, none that I know of at least, says we need to stop or change or limit religious freedom. This is a pithy distraction technique used by religious extremists. "But what is the question?" you ask? The question, and the battle arising from said question is, "Does religious freedom *include* the right to discriminate against people for religious reasons?"

The answer is no. It will always be no. You can pick that question up and paint on it or hold it at a different angle and squint at it all you want, but the answer isn't going to change. You can yell and shout and stomp your feet and threaten to hold your breath all you want. You can pretend the question is something it really isn't and hope people don't notice. The ones that don't are usually the ones that are afraid to ask questions in the first place, and are likely already members of your fringe group. You aren't going to convince anyone not already in the mud pit with you that your argument has merit.

America is not a "Christian nation". Bigotry and discrimination isn't a religious right. The answer to foreign extremism isn't home grown extremism. Yours is the dying gasp of a group who becomes less and less relevant, year by year. You might go kicking and screaming before you go, but go you will.

No, that's Wiccans. On the subject of men buttfarking other men the OT simply calls it sheqets, or unclean. Same word it uses with regard to eating shellfish or pork.

Curiously, it doesn't say much about the hot lezzie side of things at all. Just notes that buttfarking is unclean.

The Republicans are too dumb to understand this. They are also too creeped out by the whole gay thing. Seriously...get over it republicans. It doesn't make the marriage to your fat wife any less valid.

But stfu about chik-fil-a already. You are just giving them free advertisement. The CEO is allowed to donate the companies money and his money any way he wants. That is freedom. The CEO could give his money to the communist party, and it is still perfectly fine. Like others have said, many companies give money to socialist causes. Doesn't mean you have to get your undies in a bundle over it.

Would you boycott a business which gives money to Islamic charities, which fund executions of homosexuals in the middle east?

While most Christians believe that it is in direct reference to the OT, the degree to which they accept it really depends on which Christian sect you ask. Most "conservative Christians" believe that Yeshua did away with the bans on things they like, such as eating bacon and lobster and wearing cotton-poly blends, but kept that ban on gayness despite the fact that it is mere lines away from the other bans in Leviticus. Their reasoning for this can only be explained by illogical hatred and a pick-and-choose attitude towards their own dogma.

TomD9938: I wish we had Chick-fill-A around here (Minneapolis) because KFC is just farking gross.

Plus, who knows what any given Yum-Brand share-holders opinions are on issues that I hold dear.


Well, as individuals, I couldn't say.

The CEO is David Novak. He is Yum's Chairman of the Board and also a director at JP Morgan Chase (which is not a point in his favor, though I suspect the shareholders love it since Yum turns acceptable proftis).

Yum's charity giving is directed mainly at world hunger - as in, education and elimination. Simple Google search will give you that information.

They've contributed to political candidates as well: Republican candidates admittedly do see more donation dollars from the corporation, but they donate to both Republican and Democratic candidates from a variety of states. Source

Simple thing with any company... if you do not like where the owners choose to donate, don't do business there. Or, if you really, REALLY like the product, donate an equal or greater amount to an organization committed to the opposite of what that business donates profits to.

That $6.50 pays for a meal. The entire amount does not go to whatever the owners choose to support because it is not all profit. And the business owner has every right to donate to causes he or she supports - just as you have every right not to support a business that supports causes you disagree with. Welcome to the free market economy. No one - not the business owner, not the customer, not any city mayor, and most certainly not the federal or state government has the right to tell any business owner that he or she may not support a cause because other people disagree with it.

Everyone in this country has a right to their opinion and everyone in this country has a right to disagree with that opinion. Get the fark over yourselves.

There's a big difference between "Oh, I think such-and-such" versus "I'm going to pay millions of dollars to deny you your rights."


But everyone knows that supporting the traditional view of marriage means you automatically believe that repealing DADT would lead to servicemen being molested in their sleep, and that homosexuals are pedos.

Yes because people are always honest in polls. They dont say what they really mean out of fear of being bullied and called names when they are polled in public. How many states have voted this issue down already? People are more honest in a voting booth. I was actually polled the other day by this automated phone call and I trolled it hard. I told it I was black, republican and voting for Romney. Just to skew the numbers enough to confuse the dipshiats who are looking for any glimmer of "hope."

A lot of religion sucks. But only a certain percentage of the population is going to agree with that from a logical point of view. The rest of the population will either see this as an attack on themselves and their beliefs, the other half will totally agree because [insert list of religions and religious beliefs different from my own] are just fakes and their religion is made up.

This is some sage advice for you, religion. You are something of a dinosaur at this point. Unless you move towards inclusiveness and start to re-evaluate the lessons and morals of your beliefs, you are a dying breed. End of story. Focus on what you're truly good at, humanitarian efforts, financial aid, community support, comfort and safety. Turn a new chapter on the things you're infamous for, Hell and brimstone, exclusionary practices, hatred, shame and purgatory. What people need the most these days is a connection to other people, not fear, not shame not narcissism. Capitalize on that, and you've got yourself a winning ideology.

Honestly, the same goes for fast food, so in that way I guess Jesus is the equivalent of the Chick Fila sandwich. The pinnacle of all chicken sandwiches, so good, a chicken voluntarily sacrificed its life so that yet another filet sandwich could exist.

The right to get pregnant / get someone else pregnant is something of a natural right. Some people have it, some people don't. Some might even say having a baby is a God given right. But really, are "natural rights" God given? Are they something different? If they're God given, what about murder? I'm just as capable of murder as I am of reproduction. I bet the same goes for the vast majority of the human species. Does that make murder a God given right? I say absolutely not. Whether you believe in God or not, you do not have the right to murder someone else. And contradictory as it seems, those things which remain true, whether you believe in God or not, are those that truly classify as God given rights.

So, try to keep gay marriage illegal or refuse to eat at one of those restaurants. The result is eventually going to pan out like either ...
1) Prejudiced, ignorant and/or apathetic population keeps this company afloat.
2) Informed, interested, apathetic and/or ignorant outnumber those in option 1, company becomes unprofitable and no more Chick Fila.

bujin: Don't know either, but the Old Testament is what is currently used to justify anti-gay bigotry.... Since Jesus said zippo about it.


You need to look in the Book of Acts.

The Ten Commandments are Hebrew Law, and apply to the Jews. The people known as 'Christians' today were called 'Gentiles' back then, and were explicitly excluded from the covenant between God and the Jews which is represented by the Ten Commandments.

Jesus's death didn't turn Gentiles into Jews, but (according to Christian theology) created a second covenant with God that included both Jews and Gentiles.

The whole "okay, so what parts of Jewish Law are these 'Christians' supposed to obey?" was one of the big debates of the early church. The decision (recorded in Acts) was that Christians start with a much smaller set of rules than the Jews had, but "no fornication" was pretty much at the top of the list.

(Old joke I learned from a rabbi: Moses comes down from the mountain and says, "There's good news, there's bad news. The good news is that I was able to talk Him down to ten. The bad news is that adultery is still on the list.")

From the perspective of Christian doctrine, homosexuality falls in the same category as hooking up. Now, given that we're talking about a culture that executed people for adultery, it's pretty safe to say the original intent was pretty harsh.

We've moved on a bit in the past couple millenia though. Here in the European and American track, there have been several pivotal thinkers and doctrinal shifts, any of which was tantamount to heresy and damnation by the opposing side when it happened. By now, it's very hard to draw a direct line from the original precedent to a specific opinion today.

Some of the Christian opposition to homosexuality can be traced to the more exuberant periods of gay history. The whole "going down to the bathhouse for a volume discount on farking without bothering to take names" was -- let's face it -- a direct rejection of the social values generally associated with Christianity. Even today, that section of the gay community that wants to settle down in a lifelong relationship hasn't clearly distinguished itself from the section that treats sexual orientation as performance art.

One of the tenets of Christianity that both sides tend to forget is the requirement to make a distinction between the behavior and the person. The jargon is "hate the sin, not the sinner," but since that includes the word 'hate' it's induced assholery on both sides of any number of issues, gay rights being merely one.

That's actually a place where the gay community could stand to refine its message.. on the one hand, there's, "I don't want people to think 'gay' defines who I am," on the other, you have "'gay' is an integral part of who I am, so if you can't accept that then you can't accept me." It takes some careful parsing to avoid thinking those two statements boil down to "trying to have it both ways." Both messages could stand to be reformulated so the distinction between the underlying ideas is clearer.

radarlove: satanorsanta: My biggest problem with all of this is it is really making me crave a chick-fil-a sandwich. I disagree with them politically and don't want to be associated with the anti-gay people, but I really want one of their sandwiches. Sure I can make my own or go somewhere else, but it just isn't the same.

I know what mean.

My wife and I stopped eating at Chick-Fil-A over a year ago when we learned how much money they were funneling to Focus on the Family. No fanfare, no bragging to our friends or family, no news crews or blog posts. We just said to one another, "You know, I think I'd rather we didn't help support FotF by eating at CFA, no matter how damn tasty their nuggets and waffle fries are." And we got cravings for the first month or so when we'd drive past, but we got over it.

Now I have to hear about Chick-Fil-A every farking day, and the hunger is driving me insane.

Can I do some kind of carbon-credit thing, where I maybe offset eating a 12-piece and large waffle fry by letting a guy cum up my ass afterwards?


Have your car insured by Progessive. They are major contributors to all the left wing causes!!
I don't believe in 90% of the causes they give money to but I love their customer service!

You'd probably be more coherent if you had more information.

As above, for Christians, they're The Ten Really Good Ideas, but we're still encouraged to think about them before breaking them. WRT murder, see item 5 (or 6, if you like the older groupings).

.. and before anyone gets off on a tear about 'thou shalt not kill', it's a bad translation. The original word is closer to 'murder', which is distinct from the act of ending another person's life. 'Murder' is 'to kill unlawfully'. Soldiers don't commit murder if they're obeying the rules of engagement given to them by a higher authority. Contemporary law doesn't recognize killing in self defense or to protect the life of another as 'murder' as long as some basic conditions apply.

Since God is recognized as the source and ultimate judge of law in Judeo-Christian theology, there's no contradiction between God giving humans a commandment against murder (essentially saying, "you don't decide whether a killing is justified; I do") and God giving orders to kill.

.. and no, "the voices in my head told me to" doesn't fly. Hasn't for the past couple of thousand years.

McCain has a gay daughter that he loves and accepts and is open to civil unions. Never was for civil unions but open to it.

But he had the wrong letter next to his name so gays voted against their own self interests.

Sorry, but I'm no fan of most leftist causes, either. I donate to organizations who provide food and clothing and shelter for the needy and I believe in equal rights for all. That doesn't make me a libtard or a republicoont- it makes me a follower of the teachings of Yeshua bin Yussuf.

This false left-right dichotomy you've given yourselves is horseshiat. They're just two sides of the same equally manipulative and evil coin.

Uh... doesn't the Bible specifically call for gay people to be executed?

No, that's Wiccans. On the subject of men buttfarking other men the OT simply calls it sheqets, or unclean. Same word it uses with regard to eating shellfish or pork.

Curiously, it doesn't say much about the hot lezzie side of things at all. Just notes that buttfarking is unclean.


Yes, the Bible mentions nothing about women sleeping with women. UNLESS you're talking about an "only in porn" moment, where in Leviticus it does mention that it is "sheqets" to sleep with both a mother and her daughter. So lesbians are totally cool unless they're closely related. The more you know!

Libertarians have felt that way for 40+ years, and they hate us worse than the Republitards.

There are plenty of reasons to hate libertarians, actually. Probably not for this reason.

Personally, I hate Libertarians for treating people as human beings (and not as cattle like they are). The fact that they believe adults can make decisions for themselves pisses me off on a deep level.

Don't forget our affirmation of the sanctity of the individual, and the right of all persons to live their lives any way they wish, provided solely that they do not inflict their ways by force upon any other people wishing to do the same.

That would also include gays, collectivists and leftist libtards, BTW.

Yep, sure is a lot there to hate.

And don't even get me started on that whole libertarian 'live and let live' thing. Nothing pisses me off more than another adult doing something in their home that I don't approve of. How can I be expected to live my life when others are doing things I don't like. And these people want EVERYONE to pay taxes? Isn't that what the 1% is for?

If you read through all the CFA threads on fark - I defend their service and cleanliness because I'm so impressed by it. Check this thread. There was a healthy debate about customer service training, and I supported all of it. There was also a suggestion that they achieve some of their customer service by being extremely selective about who they hire in the first place, and there are links to those stories in the thread as well.

"Cult" was a poor choice of words. They train their employees in areas other companies don't seem to think is important, and that's why their service is so much better. More importantly, they fire employees that don't follow the training, which some people think is an abomination. Personally, I think it's one of the reasons their restaurants work so well. They set expectations high and never let their employees fall below them.

So yeah, cult wasn't the right description. "Strict" would be a better word to describe it. And I agree with their methods because they obviously work.

ok the standard republican candidate i am voting for wants to lower by taxes, leave my guns alone, and reduce the size of government. He also does not support equal rights for homosexuals. Nobody is perfect. I certainly not voting for the candidate that wants to take all of my money and give it to people who did not earn it, grab my guns, and make me subservient to the government just because they favor rights for gays.

If you read through all the CFA threads on fark - I defend their service and cleanliness because I'm so impressed by it. Check this thread. There was a healthy debate about customer service training, and I supported all of it. There was also a suggestion that they achieve some of their customer service by being extremely selective about who they hire in the first place, and there are links to those stories in the thread as well.

"Cult" was a poor choice of words. They train their employees in areas other companies don't seem to think is important, and that's why their service is so much better. More importantly, they fire employees that don't follow the training, which some people think is an abomination. Personally, I think it's one of the reasons their restaurants work so well. They set expectations high and never let their employees fall below them.

So yeah, cult wasn't the right description. "Strict" would be a better word to describe it. And I agree with their methods because they obviously work.

Understood...
Sorry for the snark, just calling it as I saw it.

/Working man


It's all good. When I was younger I worked farms, then a few fast food jobs, but customer service training wasn't ever present. That's why I think CFA has such a good record of service and cleanliness - because they actually train people to do it.

I moved from fast food to being a butcher at a meat shop, and cleaning took on a whole different level simply because you'd kill people if you didn't do it correctly. The pizza place I worked at barely cared if you threw bleach water on the floor, and they cared even less if you properly mopped it up to get rid of that sour smell. At the meat shop, if you didn't leave every single thing on the prep area as clean as God's own porcelain Jesus doll then there was hell to pay. The owner and the health inspector ran sniff tests on the cutting boards. If they smelled foul - you had farked up.

The owner of the meat shop had a few other rules about dealing with customers, and his #1 rule was "if someone has to ask for me, you'll probably get fired." However, he also gave us enough leeway to make the customer happy. If someone biatched about a badly cut steak, we had the go ahead to give them a replacement for free. But every time we gave away a free steak because of a mistake, we had to figure out what to do with the bad one.*

Empowerment is a good motivator for hourly employees. It makes them feel like they have a hand in the business. If we had a week at the meat shop without any mistakes, we all got an extra 50 bucks, which in the 1980's was good money. That shop is still open today, which is a testament to how well they run the business. It's not a grocery store, it's an actual good old-fashioned butcher store.

Whatever CFA managers do to train their employees, it clearly works. If that includes a strict hiring process, then there's something about the process that lets them hire better than average candidates.

*badly cut steaks make excellent "ground steak", and they sell well.

Aikidogamer: You assume gay rights is a driving issue. For many it is not. Its more like:

ok the standard republican candidate i am voting for wants to lower by taxes, leave my guns alone, and reduce the size of government. He also does not support equal rights for homosexuals. Nobody is perfect. I certainly not voting for the candidate that wants to take all of my money and give it to people who did not earn it, grab my guns, and make me subservient to the government just because they favor rights for gays.

I am just saying for most gay rights is a secondary or tertiary issue.


Clearly it's not a major for you. But it could be the issue that gets a lot of young(er) people out to the polls who otherwise would stay home, and those people are not the types who use phrases like "grab my guns" and "make me subservient to the government" .

Let's face it, you were never gonna vote anything but Republican anyway. But that's okay -- you're a dying breed. These polls show the GOP's base of scaredycat, evangelical fundamentalist, randite knuckledraggers is shrinking ... aging ... dying off. Turns out Idiocracy may be wrong after all.

There's hope for the USA yet.

TheRedMonkey: mekki: I wonder how many of those so-called Pro-Chick-fil-A people would still be Pro-Chick-fil-A if they knew how much of their money was going to charities that help provide free medical care, housing and scholarships to the less fortunate. (Such as, Georgia Baptist Health Care System, Georgia Lion's Lighthouse Foundation and WinShape Homes to name a few.) In other words, OMG! Socialism.

Its not socialism when its charity. Its socialism when its government mandated.


DURRRRRRR. Socialinsm!

Check your stats for actual turn out for 18-24 year old block. It is always low. 2008 was an uptick, it is doubtful that it will continue. You are correct in stating the RNC scardy cat is dying because the libertarian wing of it is slowly winning the battle for control. I am not scared of people making their own decisions including firearm ownership and personal biases. You are not. I would say you are the scardy cat because you would want govt decide acceptable and not acceptable opinions. People can be bigoted, not my choice, but knock yourself out and do use the govt to further your goals.

If companies are people and people vote with dollars then the destination of the restaurant's donations are open for public debate. It very well should be an issue as to where peoples' hard-earned money goes after the chicken goes down their gullet. This issue has made our little feathered friend the modern martyr as Chick-fil-A laughs all the way to the bank. Watch the poultry be nailed to the cross and pierced by the spear of destiny at the hands of those devious cows on my artist's blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08/holy-rollin-poultry-on-cros s-chick-fil.html

bujin: Cpl.D: radarlove: And considering that He expressly stated that He had come to do away with the old law?

When he said old law, was that in direct reference to the old testament? Or is that a maybe-it-fits guesstimate? Serious question, I don't know the answer.

Don't know either, but the Old Testament is what is currently used to justify anti-gay bigotry.... Since Jesus said zippo about it.

/as with all religions, folks just pick & choose whatever allows them to justify hate


Yeah, you people keep saying that, but . . .

4 "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,'[a] 5 and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." Matthew 19:4-6

Jesus was addressing the Pharisees who had come to test him on divorce. He could have just said, "what God has joined together, let no one separate," but he didn't. He went back to the beginning and made God's plan for men and woman from the start very clear, that a man is to be united to his wife. No other option given. Two men and two women cannot be joined together. Sorry that no one explained this to you before, but procreation doesn't work that way.

But hey, you are still free to engage in whatever activity you desire so long as it doesn't hurt anyone else, and I don't see why two consenting adults cannot enter into civil unions to have the same legal rights as married people. But I'm sorry, I do not agree that the long standing tradition and definition of marriage needs to be re-defined to make you feel better about your life decisions. That are a lot of things in this life that we all want, but due to certain circumstances, we simply cannot have.

It's funny how they keep posturing this as a 'rights' issue when it's never been a 'right' between gay people ever. in history.

Right. Because once the religious redefined marriage as a religious thing it upsets their invisible friend if you try to have a non-religious marriage.

Seeing as it existed long before any of the abrahamic religions and all. Link

I guess the gay activists' current strategy of harassing and insulting anyone who disagrees with them...has only made people (*gasp!*) LESS sympathetic to their cause?

sonarbison: I guess the gay activists' current strategy of harassing and insulting anyone who disagrees with them...has only made people (*gasp!*) LESS sympathetic to their cause?


Yes ... because people who think it is OK to deny rights to groups they don't like are generally full of sympathy.

/I guess the KKK were a sympathetic group as well but just got tired of those darn black people always whining about wanting equal rights.

Marriage is mostly a legal benefit in America. *yay tax benefits!*

Therefore, you are denying "rights" under the law.

So, to equivocate here is the "rights" under the religion. Religion is in American law in America? It better not be, for that would be a violation under the Constitution, no?

You were saying?

;)
