    You can treat people with dignity and respect and be against SSM.

    This whole thing is rather silly to me. If the dude wants to use his company to promote an anti-gay agenda, he's free to do so. If that pisses people off enough not to patronize his business as a result, they are free to do that. Everybody just get back to excercising your freedom, and we're fine.

    he need not be in a church pulpit to do that
    while i oppose his message, we should in no way challenge his right to express it
    but i do agree with you in that i hope he and his franchisees suffer greatly because of his intolerant stand
    If it comes down to it, chik will open up drive thru same sex wedding ceremonies before closing the chain down.

    surprised that attorneys who specialize in title VII cases are not lined up at chik fil a, soliciting clients for discrimination filings
    it would be difficult for the company to now defend against them
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    You cannot treat everyone the same while at the same time saying you are against SSM. It is an irreconcilable contradiction. I completely support his right to live by his bigotry.

    I don't really care what Obama or any other politician believes deep in their heart. As long as he's willing to implement progressive policies (and he has on gay rights), that's what's important.

    And since you do readily compromise your 'values', why shouldn't he see you that way? Must suck to be a token.

    It's pretty disgusting that you use "gay" as a way to smear people, but to quote Jerry Seinfeld, "I'm not gay...not that there's anything wrong with that."
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    He didn't say he'd treat everyone the same. He said he'd treat them with dignity and respect.

    By all means. Show where I used 'gay' as a means to smear someone.

    "treat every person with honor, dignity and respect - regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender."

    you cannot make that claim and be against SSM. it's pretty straightforward.

    Nice subtle switch of pronouns there. Implication: "You're gay, and that's bad."
