    Made with bigotry, with a little bit of intolerance throw in.

    Didn't your moms teach you not to talk with food in your mouth?

    I was going to go to a competitor to eat, but then I woke up and realized if I just donated money directly to a group that was working towards gay rights they would get more money than the fraction of a cent from a KFC value meal.

    So how is that making chick fil a rich thing working out for you?

    Chick fil a'a new advertising campaign is a winner. Work off of the right's bile and hate and suck them dry of money while pretending you are going to make anti-gay laws. Hey, if the right was not a bunch of gullible fools they might wake up and realize what a pile of crap mittens is.

    Bingo. That's how it's done.

    Not allowing a store to open in the first place is a different story altogether.

    In the case of banning chick fil a from opening I hope they use their money to have the zoning laws that the right uses to discriminate eliminated. The zoning laws should not be used to stop legitimate businesses and places of worship from, opening up in places where other businesses and places of worship are, but right now the christian right uses zoning to stop Mosques and gay establishments from being allowed in areas zoned for their presence because the town gets to vote against them. perhaps this will enlighten christians as to the problems that come around when you allow for discrimination.

    how sillie...thinking you 'fought' for anything by buying a sandwich

    perhaps that is what is wrong with younger people....they really think they are fighting and contributing when all they are doing is doing what they do daily....buying mal...

    You know what? I don't give a shit if they open 100 new chicken joints. That's their right to do so. However, as a Christian....I don't agree with the anti-gay rhetoric coming from their administration. So as an American, I have the right not to support their establishment.

    Yes, there is always a conflict between living in a free society and faith.

    I wrote a little something about this in another forum....My church used to be a UCC(United Church of Christ) church. When the UCC chose to allow gay marriage and recognize the "Goddess" as part of their doctrine, our church left the UCC and became a reformed church....I supported this decision.

    However, our country is a free society. We, as Christians(or any other religion...for that matter) need to realize that all law abiding, tax paying citizens are protected by the same rights and responsibilities. When you take rights away from a particular group because your religion doesn't like what they do....then we move away from a free society and towards a tyrannical dictatorship.

    Lastly...I urge all the right wingers on here who continually bleat about freedoms and liberty....use analogies of "two wolves and a sheep"....and think that a Health Insurance Mandate is tyrannical....What do you think this is?

    1. you can't deny that their freedom and liberty is being limited.

    2. since the vast majority of us are heterosexual, we are the wolves and they are the sheep.

    Just think about what you want here. If you support this kind of thing, you are no better than the Communists....not the ones you've invented in your heads(people with a D behind their names), but the real deal....actually...it would probably more akin to the theocratic actions of hard core Islamic countries in the Middle East.

    I can separate my faith from my country. I taught my kids my faith as a good father should...but public policy in a multicultural country should not be based on faith...I taught them that too.
