    The "cause" that I agree with isn't aiming to take anyone else's rights away and harm anyone. The same can't be said of the opposition. It's about as foolish as attempting to draw some type of moral equivalence between racists and anti-racists. If someone's religious belief includes the belief that blacks are inferior, political action in favor of legitimization of anti-black discrimination and preventing blacks from voting must be okay, right?

    The rule of law that has been in existence since we have been a country and the religious standards for people throughout time...they really 'piss you off'...as long as they are republicans. If they are democrats...well...gawsh...they really really really in their HEARTS dont mean what they say...

    Hmm, wonder what all that fuss about the Democrats (aka Fred Phelps) in the WBC was about then...

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It was all about the 'words'...right up until the blatant hypocrisy was pointed out. Then its 'oh noes...he actually contributes money to charities (a LOT of money to charities) and some of those charities (GASP) support his religious beliefs (thats right...the same beliefs espoused by Obama right up until two months ago when he whored those beliefs out for campaign contributions and votes). Oh...and some of those charities donate to an organization that helps gay men that WANT help to find ways to live a different lifestyle.

    Meanwhile...your 'values' just got shat on AGAIN when a week ago the mayor (you remember...the guy in the OP) rolled out the red carpet for...who? Oh yeah...a guy that has a long history of equation homosexuals to pigs.

    Your values are laughable...not because of the 'values' but because how little you actually care about them.

    I don't know if he's any more of a gangster than they've had before, and eventually he'll back off of Chic-fil-A. He has to, it's bad for revenue and puts blacks out of work. Too bad the black population hasn't spoken up yet.

    Once again, freedom of speech only matters if you agree with liberal indoctrination.
    Rahm Emanuel is right because corruption,high crime,and disarming law abiding citizens are Chicago values.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Meanwhile...as in California following the vast majority of hispanic and black votes against legalizing gay marriage, the liberal outrage to this group has been...non-existent....

    Chick-fil-A and Gay Marriage: Bloomberg Won't Support Boycott of Chain in New York - Metropolis - WSJ

    This is failing in New York too, Bloomberg doesn't support a boycott which means it will fail nationally. Good bye Mrs Henson, you stupid cow.

    It's one thing to say and believe something (one is entitled to their own beliefs and nobody can change that fact). It's quite another to put bigotry in action.
    In what way did Chick-fil-A put "bigotry in action?" The point of this whole issue is the idea that the state--in this case, in the form of city mayors--stepping in and promising to deny or obstruct an individual from doing business in the area the 'rule' because they disagree with their position on a specific issue. Many business owners have spoken out in favor of gay marriage. Would it be OK for a mayor to bar them from operating in their cities? Is that the way a free society should be run? Of course it isnt. If you dont like the owners position on the issue, dont eat at his restaurant. So long as he is not actively discriminating against customers or employees in violation of the law, then the state, and power hungry politicians, should stay out of it.

    not exactly in the way you meant it. most of these people are not supporting CFA just because of the mgts position (which is what you claimed). much of it is an anti-protest showing support against the boycott. not the same as what you originally said.
    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.
