    In order to understand that, you have to think like a hateful bigot.

    Try to follow: The bigot gets called a bigot because he hates. When people single him out and label him he feels hated. Therefore, those calling him bigot must be a bigot like him.

    In other words, he's admitting that he hates, and rationalizing that all forms of discontent or dislike are bigotry.

    I'm apparently bigoted towards vegetables and M. Night Shamalans last four movies.

    You have your head firmly planted in the sand I see.

    All you have to do is provide an instance of a child getting their finger stuck in a puppet.

    Don't believe me? How about Business Insider?

    "Apparently they got three calls about hey, there's a complaint that kids are getting their fingers stuck in a hole in the toys," an employee explained. "We are erring on the side of being extra, extra cautious."

    Although Chick-fil-A is not asking parents to return the toy.

    Possible safety issue but don't bother returning the toy.

    Did you see your own quote? Chick Fil A had received complaints and choose to err on the caution. At least maybe.

    How about you answer part 2 of that same post.

    Can you prove noone complained about that?

    You can't prove a negative. Of course they said they received complaints. If they were real they would have asked them to return the toys. They didn't.

    BTW, "Abby Farle" removed her stock photo from her Facebook account.

    You forgot the part about, "If you disagree with me, you hate America."

    Now, let's get a couple of things straight. The First Amendment forbids the government from preventing the practice of religion. Is the government preventing this man from going to church?

    How is anybody else preventing him from excercising his religion? My religion tells me not to hate gays. So by not going to Chick-fil-A, wouldn't I be freely excercising my religion? Where in the Constitution does his religion outrank mine?

    How are liberals not buying fried chicken from this guy because they don't like his politics any different from conservatives not buying Dixie Chicks records because they don't like Natalie Maines' politics?

    To summarize, he has every right to say what he wants to, and to put his money behind any cause he chooses, correct? And the general public has the right to buy or not to buy his product, correct? I don't see the problem here.

    Only if you're not giving your money to a conservative. If you choose not to give it to liberals, that's OK.

    In this guy's case, he gives money to groups that are specifically anti-gay like Exodus International. If he just gave money to standard right-wing groups, I'd be much less offended. But there is no reason to give money to Exodus International unless you support discrimination, plain and simple. He doesn't even deny it; he says he's "guilty as charged."

    Second the marriage debate has two sides to it. He is entitled to his opinion. Just because his differs from yours doesn't make it wrong. It is just different.
    No, my opinion is right and his is wrong.

    Perhaps things could be resolved if instead of being defensive and aggressive and demanding these people could learn to actually communicate and respect their fellow human beings.
    Which is more disrespectful to one's fellow human beings? Telling them that they can't get married because of who they are, or calling them out on hateful comments that they make?

    No one is going to sue because no kids were harmed by the finger puppets, made by the Jim Henson Company. It was a lie. Check the date on the announcement.
    I can see how you might think that. You can't prove it of course, but it's understandable. Where you have your head in the sand is the fact that this has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Muppets, nor does Henson own the Muppets any longer (they haven't for a decade now). So the thread title at least is a lie. The MSM blasting this as a Muppets thing is also lying.

    I'm also a bit confused as to why you'd be defending a company who makes those little crap toys (most likely manufactured in China) to go in kid's meals. Yeah, it's just so unlikely there'd be a problem with any of those toys, it's never happened before, right? </sarcasm>

    Oh they "say". This type of **** is getting rediculous. This whole Chick Fil A thing is making this a really ****ty choice for people to have to make. Support religious freedom and the right to free speech vs the right to marry. I value free speech over marriage. Earlier this year there were petitions going around to get Colorado to get our state politicians to review SSM. I signed it and even stood outside king soopers for an hour collecting signatures. I have always voted for ssm when it has been on the Colorado ballot. My wife and I make a yearly donation to GLAAD and cospride.org. The disgusting attitudes of the people on this site and other websites is strongly making me reconsider all of this. Apparently the gay community wants to force people to discriminate based on religion and suppress the right to free speech. I suppose since I don't agree with religious discrimination it would not make sense for me to continue to support these groups. As long as the gay and lesbian community is encouraging people to discriminate I will no longer be supportive of them and I am going to instead donate that money elsewhere and encourage my friends and family to do the same.
