    Jesus H. ****ing Christ On A Crutch. I asked you a simple question and you evade answering it. Who are you to tell me what I think? Answer the question and I'll answer your question. If you can't demonstrate that much common courtesy then I agree - we have nothing to discuss.

    Do you think people who don't support gay marriage are stupid?

    Since when are business licenses covered under freedom of speech? Chick-fil-A could be denied a license under any excuse and it wouldn't make one bit of a difference. It's really funny that all the usual suspects are coming out to swing for unapologetically bigoted people with their usual excuse of political correctness. It's the right's own little version of the race card.

    I can't speak for him, but I can tell you that in 23 years of living on this planet, I have never once encountered a rational justification for denying marriage equality that could stand up on moral and constitutional grounds.

    With respect, I already stated why I did not answer your comments...

    "Exactly like Nabisco and Target. Remind me of what Nabisco and Target are shaking fists at though. I really don't remember. They'll lose my business as soon as I see their fist."
    ...because you have already made it clear that it's not alright for a business owner to not support gay marriage. Not liking to waste time with truly unfair notions, I'm not going to answer that comment. In my opinion I think all business owners ought to have their non-violent opinions without fear of punishment. You seem to disagree with this.

    Dumb. If an organization were funding the KKK or NeoNazis then you wouldn't be jumping to compare it to an organization that supports same sex marriage...at least I hope you wouldn't.

    The only reason you hold this position is because you are not informed. You don't know what kind of lies and hatred the FRC has spread over the years. How often their lies are quoted by politicians and media figures.

    Nope. I refuse to debate this issue with someone who has no idea what they are talking about. I'm simply pointing out that comparing an organization that supports hate groups to one that supports same sex marriage is ridiculous at best. If you want to open a debate on why it is a hate group, then feel free. I would love to go page by page with ya on things the FRC has said, because I know oh so very well that I will win that debate and you will feel like an idiot for even starting it once you are informed.

    but, of course, to you and yours any fear or antipathy towards homosexuals is unreasoning
    Thats probably because it is.
