I don't see how a family headed by two bears meets Westboro Baptist Chicken's marriage standard of one man and one woman.

jjorsett: If going after corporate Thoughtcrime is the 'in' thing these days, I suggest the right-wingers start with Ben & Jerry's for saying, "We stand with you" to Occupy Wall Street.

And just when did Evil become so goddamned whiny?

torr5962: The funny thing is Barack Obama had the exact same stand on gay marriage as Chick-Fil-A when he was running in Illinois. So maybe this Cathy guy should just say he's "evolved" from his marriage stance and all of this will go away.

This means Ronald McDonald is president and Barack Obama has to have sex with fat Wendy on the jumbotron at Talladega.

WTF is that thing the mama bear wears day and night? That's how my grandmother dresses, but she's 84 and grew up in a farking rural village in Puerto Rico so I give her a pass.

I can see Chick Fil-A's reaction if the books are pulled by the publisher.

PR D-bag: Chick Fil-A has decided to recall the Berenstain Bears books because they are potentially dangerous to children and may give them nasty papercuts.

Silverstaff: Jodeo: natazha: "the biblical definition of the family unit,"

So, where are my concubines?

The bible is chock full of sinners. Don't confuse their breaking of God's plan with permission to go and do likewise. It was Adam and Eve, not Abraham and Sarah and Hagar and his Concubines.

God hates divorce, too. Just sayin'.

Solomon Had 700 wives, 300 concubines, and was Holy and beloved of Yahweh enough to build the First Temple.

The only problem was that many of his wives were followers of their own deities of their peoples, not Yahweh, and they convinced their husband to build temples to their Gods, making the God of the Israelites angry since he was having to coexist with other deities and not pretend to be the only God.

So, basically, polygamy is allowed, but only if you are marrying wives of the same faith.

I'll see your King Solomon and raise you King David. In II Samuel Chapter 12, the Prophet Nathan comes to rebuke David after the Bathsheeba / Uriah the Hittite incident. In verse 8, Nathan is speaking the direct words of the LORD [YHWH] God of Abraham, Isaaac, and Jacob, to David:

"And I [the LORD God] gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things."

God point-blank says that He personally gave David the multiple wives of former King Saul!

David's sin was taking the wife of another man whom God had not given him, and ordering the murder-by-abandonment-in-battle of her rightful husband to accomplish it.

(Note: Bathsheeba was Solomon's mother. Had David not committed this sin, neither Solomon nor any other of the post-David Kings of United Israel or Judah would ever have existed, and neither would [at least according to Matthew] the line leading to Joseph the Carpenter, [allegedly step-]father of Jesus of Nazareth! But I digress....)

Harry_Seldon: I wonder how this is going to impact the upcoming College Football Season? The Disney Co. Must be spitting nails at this point. The anchor sponsor for college football on ESPN, this ought to be good.

Anyone want to bet we won't be seeing any " eat more chick'n ads"

They're changing it to "eat more cock" to help their image.

Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: Man, whatever.

The guy is a bible-banging dickhole, but it's a privately held company. He's entitled to his shiatty opinion and he can do what he wants with his business. I'm not going to stop eating spicy chicken sandwiches and waffle fries with lemonade because I don't agree with his politics.

Translation - I'm not going to inconvenience myself by standing up for my principles.

"We are very much supportive of the family - the biblical definition of the family unit," Cathy said. "We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that."

Do these people have brain AIDS or something? It's like they live in some weird mirror darkly universe where anyone gives a shiat about their closed minds and sky wizard.

pro tip: people usually don't mind that your a closed minded bigot if you don't cause waves. but if you can't stfu about it you may find people go out of their way to avoid you

You sell deep fried chicken to fat farks. You gotta be pretty thick to fark that situation up.

"Hi, I'd like a chicken sandwich and one for my girl friend"

"You're.... you're also a girl though, right?"
