    dont really see the problem! The chicken guy can bash gays and other people can choose to boycott them, seems fair enought to me!

    Thanks. That tells me what I need to know. When it comes to using the government to discriminate against an entity undertaking perfectly legal action due to their religious beliefs or affiliations, your decide to damn one side's action and absolve another baesd on your personal opinion of said view.

    When one side's beliefs dehumanize and oppress another side I believe the government should take that into account. I won't throw out common sense just for the appearance of consistency on how boards grant licenses. I believe that being against bigotry is more noble than being politically and ideologically consistent.

    My beef is the intolerance of so many who like to pretend they want equality or to end discrimination yet they continually discriminate against those who disagree with them.

    Chick Fil A is just one example of many. People walk around expecting that everyone be tolerant of their beliefs, and everyone be tolerant of their lifestyles, and then turn around and discriminate and mock others for their beliefs and lifestyles.

    These same people that are ok with mayors not letting chick fil a's be built, and henson refusing to do busines with a group based on their religious beliefs would be up in arms if a business run by a gay man were discriminated against for his. It is hypocritical to demand tolerance while not being so yourself.

    There is a wedge driven between groups in this country. For the sake of this discussion we will use gays and religious extremists. Gay marriage supporters absolutely hate when a religious nut pushes their beliefs down their throats. Yet they go around expecting shoving their beliefs down the throats of the religious extremists. The gay rights demand an end to discrimination while at the same time disriminating against the religious. It is disgusting and both sides, or the majority of people on both sides are doing nothing but furthering the gap in these groups and pushing us toward segragation.

    More false equivalency. Gays are not saying that God is going to cast "Judgement" (bad things of a biblical nature will happen) if they aren't allowed to marry. They are not giving money to groups to outlaw heterosexuality or hetero marriage. They don't send kids to "Pray the straight away" camps. They aren't giving money to groups to outlaw religion. They just want to marry the people they love. This is at no expense to any religious people or people in straight marriage. Quit pretending they are equal. It makes you appear to have an infinitesimal intellect.

    One more time I do not see gays trying to ban heterosexual marriage I do see some trying to ban gay marriage though going so far as to amend the US Constitution.

    (snip)

    The Henson company, whose Muppet characters are hugely popular, said its Chief Executive Lisa Henson is a "strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD," the company said in their statement.


    Chick-Fil-A has not hidden its Christian mission statement from day one, which precedes the founding of Henson's company. If Henson actually gave a damn about the issue, rather than responding to pressure and then grandstanding, they might have never chosen to associate with Chick-Fil-A at all.

    It's a pity that simple symbols and characters from childhood now have to be politicized.

    Muppets are so gay anyway. Who needs em. I don't even let my kids watch Sesame Street anymore since the show has gone all stupid uber liberal enough to make you vomit. I don't need my kids being indoctrinated by stupid people and their ridiculous views on the world. It's bad enough that they're going to be subjected to it in school..
