    If gay marriage were legalized, you would have the same rights to marry someone of the same sex too. Win/win for everyone to allow gay marriage.
    Wake up. I'm not the one claiming its "de-human" one way or the other. Which is the point.

    The issue with Chick-fuk-a, who I never heard of until 2 days ago, seems to be based not on thier Christianity but on their political positions. We've had "Christian Companies" before and the outcry was much more muted. Dominos Pizza is the one I remember.

    So, if a restaurant chain named themselves The Lord Obama Burger, I suppose conservatives would be boycotting them If they named themselves Romney's Rib House, liberals would boycott them. Claiming is has to do with Christianity is just a ploy for sympathy.

    If I could find a Chic-fuk-a to boycott - I would. I don't like their attitude. However, if they were denied a business license, I would be in line to protest that decision.

    My Momma told me "a little logic goes a long way" but she was wrong.

    Given an option between Chick-Fil-A and the Muppets, I'll take the chicken guys.

    The good news is that you can still eat a Chickaboom filet while watching the Muppets.

    Unlike with the Chicago's Rahm Emanuel vs Chick Fil A thing, I don't have a problem with this at all. One business severing ties with another business due to a difference in political, social or religious ideologies is perfectly acceptable to me.

    Or I can eat it while NOT watching the Muppets which would now be my preference.

    Some people fail to recognize that it is quite possible to be a Christian without being a hateful bigot spreading lies in order to try to damage a group of people.

    The one's who actually follow Jesus' teachings, for instance.............

    That's part of why I left the Christian Faith.... nobody willing to stand up for Right and Wrong anymore. Besides, I was always more of an Old Testament fan anyway.

    it would appear, based on his decision not to spend any of his money at that restaurant chain, that he will ensure he is not helping to fund this anti-gay propaganda

    it is one thing to espouse pre-Christian values
    it is quite another to demean the sexuality of another

    years ago cracker barrel restaurants flagrantly refused to hire gay employees. and a boycott of that restaurant chain by folks who could not support such meanness caused the company to revise its hiring policy
    maybe the same response will happen again
