    Why is that the choice? He's free to practice his retarded religion and speak his hateful opinions, just as others are free to call him on his bull**** and not buy his food. I support the Westboro Baptist Church's freedom of speech and religion too, but that doesn't make their opinions worthy of anything but contempt.

    I can't. This is important.

    Just as I am free to no longer support the bigots pushing for ssm and I am free to donate my money to causes that wont use it for their hate filled bull**** like you posted here. Apparentley "tolerance" means you only have to tolerate beliefs that fall in line with yours.

    And the minute that GLAAD starts saying that ignorant homophobes shouldn't be allowed to get married, and lobbying to have Dan Cathy's marriage annulled, you might have a point. But until then, you're just talking out of your ass and drawing a false equivalence where none exists.

    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>
    While they don't own the company, Jim Henson's five children do run the company. Disney owns the rights and trademarks to the Muppets. You can look it up even.

    I'm sure you can show me the press release where the Jim Henson Creature Shop has recalled the toys.

    How about just exercise our right to shame, shun, boycott and ridicule certain groups?


    I can get behind that!



    Hating bigotry is not bigoted... it's human.

    Chick Fil A has replaced this chinese made muppett crap with Berenstein Bears books. The Henson companies bigotry has actually helped Chick Fil A upgrade their product offering.

    Which bigots support SSM? If they are tolerant, that means they are not bigots.

    Follow?


    I believe in the facts. 2000 year old scriptures tell us a lot about early Western Civilization, and the stories may inspire us to lead better lives. But to cherry-pick some tribal tradition and apply it to modern day life... well, that's just silly.

    See, there really isn't two sides to the gay rights issue. You either support the constitution of the U.S. and the core traditions and values (equality, civil rights) of this country, or you don't. And if you don't, why are you here?

    Countdown until Berenstein Bears copyright holders get on the phone to their lawyers... 5, 4, 3, 2...


    Who wants their brand associated with the likes of WBC?

    you clearly think that the only way to discriminate against someone is to disagree with their views on marriage. That is simply not the case. As long GLAAD and their supporters continue to discriminate against people based on their religious beliefs I will not support them or their causes. If SSM makes its way back to Colorado this bigotry has lost at least one vote and if I can help it more. I am going to strongly advocate against GLAAD and cospride.org until they stop this nonsensical attack on a man for no reason other than his religious beliefs.
