The fact that its concerned with the Chick-fil-A's guy's imbecilic comments about marriage is immaterial.

    I'm certain you would claim that blocking restaurants owned by black people also would be immaterial to any accusation of racists.

    Besides religious bigotries, what other prejudices do you claim are immaterial to government discrimination?

    Oh, please link to your messages calling for President Obama to be censored for his stating opposition to gay marriage for years.

    Sure...theres also the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman thing, Luna's spanking du joir, I think a few on Madonna, the latest bout of gun control threads, and threads about Romneys words which may or may not be insensitive to someone based on how they are spoken. At least we arent spending too much time on how businesses are being built by the village.

    Nothing on the current administrations record on unemployment, debt, etc.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    I'm not following your statement. I'm not saying they can't open a Chick-fil-A. My response was to NP.

    I lurv chik-fil-a chicken I must say.


    Next evolution of this is hilarious though:


    Chick-fil-A braces for protests, same-sex ‘kiss-in’

    The still-simmering controversy sparked by the Chick-fil-A president's public comments against same-sex marriage is set to reignite this week, as more than 500,000 people say they will join former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" on Wednesday by "simply showing up and eating" at one of the company's 1,600 restaurants, while protesters backed by gay and lesbian groups plan to participate in a same-sex "kiss-in" on Friday at the same stores.

    A same sex kiss in at the mall food court while parents are eating with their young children? That's very likely going to lose more support than it gathers.

    I think it will depend on how hot the lesbians kissing are perhaps?
