Por que tan serioso:Thats it right there. Activists. Someone up thread was saying something bla bla bla "fair amount of the population" bla bla bla. LGBT are not even close. Tiny minority. But the way people talk its seems like 50/50 at this point.

(A) It's about 10% of any population.
(B) It doesn't farking matter if it's 1% of a population.  In the U.S., certain rights are guaranteed and not subject to popular or religious opinion. Some of those rights are explicit, some are implied (like the right of privacy), and some are societally determined, like the right to marry.

Baz744: Here's the thing that gets me about gay opponents. They're all so "up in your face" about their "disapproval" of homosexuality. They have to broadcast it everywhere they go. They put it on their bumper stickers, they wear it on their t-shirts, or they pin it to themselves on a button. They just refuse to keep their lifestyles to themselves.

I don't care if people want to disapprove of homosexuality in the privacy of their own homes. Whatever revolting things they want to do on their own time in their own place is fine.

But if you decide to flaunt your perverted gay hate everywhere you go, don't be surprised when there are consequences. Don't be surprised if employers don't want anything to do with you. Don't be surprised if your normal friends with good morals abandon you. Don't be surprised if even your own family rejects you.

Keep your gay hate in the closet where it belongs.


+2 - brilliant!

Waldo Pepper: Bob Robert: Waldo Pepper: A Christian should be known by their actions especially in the business world. Taking care of all customers is the mark of a good Christian business.

What happen to judging a business of the quality and fairness of their product/service and not their beliefs.

When Christians decided they were going to preach morality onto the rest of society and vote for discriminating laws.

it's not just Christians.  Those who won't eat at Chick-fil-a because of the owners beliefs and yet by all accounts the stores treat their employees well and they provide excellent service to their customers. Better than average for their industry. 

I'm sure there other examples besides Chick-fil-a but it is the easiest to use. 

maybe i'm too naive on this issue.  Do you have the product/service i want or need and will you provide it a a fair price. Yes.good I'll buy, no okay I'll keep looking.


Making a decision not to give money to a business that donates to discrimination causes is just as bad as voting in legislation that restricts someones rights? You are not naive, you are just dumb.

You could put up a NO COLORED JEWS sign, but that would be the exact day Sammy Davis, Jr. Wanted to come in Your establishment.

No freaking way man. Colored Jewish zombies are definitely banned. Just like Jesus.

I wish instead of "someone upthread" there was a quote to the post so I could see the context. If in whatever context it was used you could substitute being an ally for actually being gay then 50% is still pretty dismal.

Its like those guys who said the straight peopel are just caving to pressure and acting like theyre tolerant because gay rights are 'in right now' or whatever nonsense. It's not gay vs straight. It's respectful human beings inclusive of everyone vs dickwads.

cchris_39: ciberido: cchris_39: Should kosher deli's be forced to sell me a ham sandwich?

If they're selling ham sandwiches to other people, then yes, they should.  Is that the hypothetical situation you were thinking of?

I would agree that he should sell whatever he stocks to all comers but should not have to keep ham sandwiches in inventory just because a lot of people love ham sandwiches.


I'm still trying to figure out what parallel universe we're talking about.  Is this the one where doctors prescribe sandwiches to treat medical conditions, operating a deli requires a "butcher's license," and part of getting a butcher's license involves swearing to make any sandwich for which the customer has a prescription?

Because I would think in such a universe there could not legally be any such thing as a "kosher deli."

All the hatred towards people who are different from us is learned behavior. Not in any way born or organic.

Unlearn that shiat and live free ya bunch of farkwits.


Unfortunately, I believe, not true.  Discrimination against groups that are "unlike" one's own is instinctive behavior - except for mating (to promote genetic diversity).  Both are traits that promote the survival of one's own group.


I'll nibble because I think you're being thoughtful and genuine.

We are not unlike. I'm a middle-aged white woman of Irish lineage. Let's say - for a moment - you're a 25-year old black male.

Your DNA and mine are nearly identical. We are both two-legged critters whose survival actually depends on fostering empathy.

Now, I know people who have been raised to believe that particular line of thinking. Shiat's cool and they do well in social situations. I also know people who have been raised to believe that black people, Asian people, gay people, non-christian people (whatever) will be the downfall of humanity as we know it.

For my own experiences, I think everyone I know was born with the first attitude I mention. I think the latter attitude is learned/taught/drilled into the skull. And, hey. I'm prepared to be wrong on this.

Intuitively speaking, it behooves the human species to protect its own. Not dilly-dally on who might be gay, black, short, silly looking and so forth.

That is survival. And - I think - that is what species do.

At least, I hope so.  :-)

Well, for every gay that wants to purposely wreck a Christian's livelihood out of hate, there is likely at least one Christian who will be a customer.

You don't go into an occult shop and demand they stock King James Bibles.  Likewise, if a Christian--obeying their conscience--doesn't want to be involved in your so-called "wedding," just find someone with no morals or make it yourself.

I think most people have the sense to know that these gays are just being hateful and spiteful.  "Waaahhh...we can't get these guys to tolerate our perverted lifestyle!  Let's make sure we put them out of business!"

This is the best post that will ever be.

Sigh, ok. It's not about tolerating lifestyles, it's about having the right to participate in public commerce.

Also how does baking a cake for a gay wedding equate into having no morals? I'd love an answer to this question.

There's a more important principle at stake than just actions have repercussions.  There are some things you want to teach your children not to do under any circumstances, either in public or private, because they are inherently degrading/desecrating towards others.

Why do the pearl-clutching Christians* always try to conflate a business refusing to do what they're in business to do with forcing a business to do something they don't?

Boycotting a business that refuses to serve customers because they think those customers are 'icky' is in no way even remotely like trying to force a business to serve something or provide a service they wouldn't normally provide.  These "kosher deli serving a ham sandwich" and "occult shop selling the KJB" examples aren't the same thing by any stretch of the imagination.

"We should boycott Business A because they refuse to serve a specific portion of the population." <-- That's the free market at work.
"We should force Business A to start selling a product they don't currently sell because I want that product." <-- What stupid Christians* seem to think is happening when a business gets boycotted for being bigoted.

* I am, of course, not generalizing about all Christians.  I know for a fact that many of them are compassionate, loving, and accepting people, but those aren't the Christians who think boycotting a business for being shiatty to potential customers is the equivalent of religious persecution.

This attitude right here is the opposite of Christ-like. Baby Jesus weeps with shame over your hate.

Also, how can the Meany-pants Gay People possibly put Good Christian Persecuted People out of business if, as you say, for every one who tries, there is at least one Christian to step up and fill the void?

No it's because the sin of being gay is EXTRA terrible because of projection. They hate it in themselves. they can forgive thieves and adulterers easily, but gays? That hits too close to home. To accept them would be one step closer to falling into sin themselves.

MrHappyRotter: It's very true. As a raging homosexual, I've personally destroyed several Christian businesses and I've seen to it that hundreds of Christians have lost their jobs. The problem isn't so much that we hate Christians, which we do, trust me, it's just that for every Christian business we shut down, our penis gets an inch bigger. And for every Christian we get fired, another pleasure nerve develops in our anal sphincter. You really can't compete with biology, so I'd recommend you just try to relax, and I promise I'll be gentle.

I'm pretty sure nobody researches every company with which they do business, especially since you don't have a choice in many cases, but then you knew that.  If you don't really care what folks do with their money, then why'd you post?  Is the thought of someone doing something with their money other than spend it exactly the same way you would troubling?

JoieD'Zen: If they kept their opinions to themselves and focused on running a business they wouldn't have a problem? Crazy idea.


Like a private phone call between two people?

The guy pushed out at Mozilla was fired for donating to a prop 8 support group that had their donor list illegally released.

The bakery owners in that lawsuit out west had baked for the gays in question before, just drew the line at helping them to violate a sacrament.

Bob Robert: Fafai: I'm with you. I'm as queer as a $3 bill but if they had Chick-Fil-A in my country I wouldnt hesitate to try it out. All this stuff about coprorations being anti gay is common knowledge because it's a big issue right now but do you really think the next corporation is any better? Guaranteed it's just as bad in its own way. people are dicks. People in power (corporate CEOs) especially so.

This is an obvious troll.

"I'm gay and I support Chick Fil A because every company does it!"

Great contribution. You sound very concerned.


there you go with your simplistic binary thinking again. everything is either/or with you. not hesitating to try it (say if chicken sandwiches were the most appetizing thing available in a food court when i was really hungry) does not equal "i support them" any more than "great go ahead and do what you like" equals "i insist you must do as i do!"

/and im not fully gay but im enthusiatically less than straight if that makes any difference

Angry conservative troll like posting detected. Thank you for your great concern at how oppressed businesses are when customers take into account the political stands the business takes and the causes they donate to that restrict their rights. Now go log in with a new account to agree with yourself like you jumped into my debate with another worthless tool.

Mike_1962:
There's a screaming difference here. As far as I know Chick-fil-a doesn't refuse service to people based on sexual orientation.


No, but the owner donates significant money to efforts to fight legalization of gay marriage. I suspect that's the reason a lot of people  (me included) won't eat there. I don't want even a dime of whatever I spend on lunch going into the pocket of a bigoted asshat who's actively trying to deny equal rights to other human beings.

I'm sure I unwittingly support some people who spend money for things I disagree with, but when it's as well publicized as ChikFilA, easy to avoid going there.

/really, really miss their sweet-roll-around-a-nugget breakfast though...

Bob Robert: I'm detached from reality because you think supporting a business that discriminates against gay people is what everyone does?


No (and I don't think that), it's because you think "you do what you want and that's great" means "you must do as I do". You not only put words in that posters mouth, you put words that mean the exact opposite of their sentiment. This isn't about me.

And your use of troll to mean anyone who disagrees with you makes you look like a fool. What's more likely, that legions of trolls are all targeting you, or that you're mistaken about others' motivations for posting (which logically you'd have no knowledge of beyond pure speculation?)

Show me where it even looks like I think this.

You are now taking a different position without admitting your last one was devoid of logic. And speaking of logic, because you don't care what business owners do or say, nobody else should? The typical fark troll response.


my position hasn't changed. I didn't say I agree that the person is right for not doing business with a company. just if that makes them happy then go for it.

Why does it seem that those who are pushing for diversity and acceptance have such a hard time tolerating diversity and acceptance of those who disagree with them?

I am so sad that you think I look like a fool. I really care what you have to say, as you can see I've been so emotional in my replies to your great use of "logic"

Please continue your angry drunk rants and lies about your sexual preference when you feel it will make your lie sound believable.
