    The KKK and NOI are both violent hate groups. To try to connect them to Christians is just ignorant.

    Riiiiight. Your 'candidate of choice' lied about his beliefs, about why he held his beliefs, and pawned gay rights out in the name of political expedience. And you wonder why your values and character amount to less than ****.

    Uhmm he supports making gay marriage illegal. I don't see to many gays pushing to make heterosexual marriage illegal. So who is trying to push their views on people......

    what connects them is the support of abhorrent views

    It is his right to believe that and express that, and people have the right to not go to that business because of his views and express their opinion about his views. This goes both ways.

    No, there is nothing wrong with that.

    Of course, he has not limited himself to that by a long shot, as he has contributed money to hate groups and indulged in rhetoric designed to elicit hatred against gay people.

    Sounds like a win/win for both parties. Chick gave money to the Muppets Company for the right to included toys and Chick got a well known toy.

    A politician...lying? Say it ain't so!

    Obama has been very good at implementing progressive policies on gay civil rights. Moreso than any other president in history, actually. I don't give two ****s about when he chose to endorse gay marriage or why; I never doubted that he was on the correct side of the issue in the first place. And it looks like I was right. I'm sorry if you were fooled into voting for Obama because you thought he hated gays...but if that's the case, it's your own fault.

    Yep, it was a win/win for a while. Then the Chick-Fil-A dude decided to make some ignorant, bigoted comments and the Jim Henson Company decided it didn't want its good name associated with them.
