    This one is pretty astounding:

    ExxonMobil: Eliminated domestic-partner benefits for same-sex partners when the two companies merged in 1999. It is the largest Fortune 500 company that does not offer domestic-partner benefits. It also refuses to ban discrimination based on orientation and gender identity.
    The more profitable company in the history of civilization is so cheap that it denies domestic-partner benefits to same sex partners.

    Define "reprisal."

    Anyone is allowed to offer up an opinion and a community can set standards for the type of businesses they want in their town.

    Chick-Flic-a brand is now associated with WBC ignorance, that an invisible man in the sky is going to smite American for being tolerant. That Chick-flic-a brand, the sign, the logo may inspire feelings of oppression, disgust, nausea... just like the sign for a strip club or adult book store, or a Nazi flag. A community has the right to say, we don't want your business here.

    Now, withholding permits is a different issue. I agree, a mayor has to tread lightly. A government entity should not take direct action unless they can show a conflict or interest in the community, as with strip clubs and adult book stores.

    But a community has the right to speak up at a board meeting, permit hearing, whatever and voice concerns. The City of Chicago has the right to say, 'We don't like you and we wish you were not in our town.' And the mayor can speak for the people. He was elected to do so.

    Guy Dads: Anti-gay companies
    I wanted to challenge the notion that CfA was somehow standing alone, but never got to it. I knew there had to be more companies with similar mindsets from ownership than only CfA. The only one for sure I could think of was Curves.

    I know that the family that owns In-n-Out Burger is also deeply religious, but I don't know if they support specific causes to the extreme that CfA does. They don't close on Sunday like CfA does, so they may not (be as extreme).
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Side note: It wasn't until Neil Peart pointed it out that I realized In-n-Out shake cups and burger wraps have bible verses on them. I've eaten there all my life and never noticed that.

    I guess God is in the details.

    So, this is weird and kind of related:

    Donald A. Perry, vice-president of public relations at Chick-fil-A, died this morning from a heart attack, in the midst of a growing national controversy over the fast-food restaurant's opposition to gay marriage. "We are saddened to report the news to you that our dear friend Don Perry, vice president of public relations, passed away suddenly this morning," said a company statement.

    Guy Dads: Anti-gay companies

    I am pretty sure that the stats on the Same-Sex Marriage is that a helluva lot more States are against it than for it. And, more to the point, The Supreme Court of the United States considers Same Sex marriages as bogus.

    As to the obvious larger number of companies endorsing queer marriage, the only thing that proves is that these companies probably ran market surveys and found that the LIEberrhoidals feel more strongly about their convictions as far as extending that to their purchases, etc. And, that LIEberrhoidal PC is very effective.

    Hey, if that's what it takes to get a righteous burger and fries...
