yingtong: MrHappyRotter: 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.

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.

Especially after NBC edited the 911 call to make it sound like he said something he didn't. But I suppose your opinion of him was based on that and it now it's too late to "evolve" it because you will be called a flip flopper

JDAT: tricycleracer: JDAT: Does he get to ask the kids who their father is?

The children are being raised by two loving adults. Why do they care who contributed half of their chromosomes?

How do you know that they are two loving adults?


Perhaps because they actually actively chose to have children in their lives instead of the typical trailer park, "Dadgummit, Bocephus, did you forget to wrap tinfoil 'round your dingus again? That's...the-number-after-four times now! We're running out of drawers in the dresser to sleep these kids in!"

radarlove: Hickory-smoked: Clemkadidlefark: Preaches death to homosexuals

Offres Unconditional love to all people

Curious what some people call hate

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!

Yes, it does. A Church can refuse to marry two people for any and all reasons whatsoever.

SpecialK29: 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?

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.

Lsherm: SpecialK29: WhippingBoy: I've never heard of chik-fil-a before all this. Decent food? Good chicken?

Yeah pretty amazing. I dont share their political beliefs but damn they make good chicken.

It's pretty good for fast food, but since they run their restaurants like a cult they are always clean and the service is incredible. It's like they think God will strike them down if you don't have a good experience there. Their nuggets are also real chicken, not a processed gloop with fake breading stuck on it.


So amazing food, incredible service, and clean restaurants = a cult?
I would call that good operations, pride in their work, high standards. Values if you will.

Did you work there at one time and couldn't handle the cult-like environment?

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.

You keep on farking that chicken, buddy:







This is a losing issue for Republicans.

Cling to it, and you can kiss forming a government goodbye for a long, long time.


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.

/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.

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.

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.

This issue has made our little feathered friend the modern martyr as Chick-fil-A laughs all the way to the bank.

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.

chewielouie: 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.


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

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.
 
2012-08-06 06:55:45 PM  
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?

;)
