    Your wrong here, being against bigotry is not bigotry.

    The CEO of Chick-Fil-A cannot say he opposes gay marriage and then simultaneously be believed 100% that he opposes discriminating against gay couples in his facilities.

    A person's values are fundamentally reflected by his actions. And Dan Cathy's actions are clear: he has donated money to organizations that promote a gay-bashing agenda. Therefore, he's a bigot himself, plain and simple. So if it's true that his eating facilities don't discriminate against people due to sexual orientation, then he must be a hypocrite. But if he's not a hypocrite, then he must support such discrimination, in keeping with his true beliefs.
    Show me the "gay bashing." Stating that he believes that it would be "audacious" for the nation to consider changing the definition of marraige (which he believes was originally defined by God) is not "gay bashing."

    Show me one instance of a donation made by Chick fil A to a group that spews hate. I don't believe you will find one.

    It is. No different than stating that it would be audacious for the nation to consider legal recognition of marriages between Whites and Blacks.

    You're lucky, you missed an entire thread where he said that over and over in many different versions.

    In his mind, having negative feelings towards bigots is the same thing as being a bigot.

    Oh and free speech doesn't extend to boycotts, apparently if you boycott someone because of their twisted religious beliefs, you're a bigot, in his mind.

    What?!!!


    The owner said there's an invisible man in the sky who will smite America because we're too tolerant of gays.

    And then God gave his VP a heart attack.

    Shut him up right quick...

    being intolerant of a mans faith and religious beliefs because they differ from yours is bigotry no matter how you slice it.

    yes I do agree with that last sentence. However he is not interfering with any rights of others. Noone has the right to marry and further more he does not have the authority to make the decisions as to whether or not ssm ever happens. That is done politically and at the voting booths. Neither of which does he control. His opinion is that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. I am aware of no time has this man ever said that he did not support the legal rights of a ss couple to be equal to that of a ds couple. This IS about his religion. Look around. You have one person sitting in here stating it is because of baptists, another saying how evil baptists are, another idiot mocking religion as an imaginary man in the sky, another stating that god is petty and the list goes on and on just on this thread and you can go to other website to see even more of it. This situation, these comments and many other things are clearly bigots being intolerant of christian beliefs while at the same time being confused as to why the people that they discriminate against wont be more tolerant of them.

    i could keep reposting the same sentence or you could just keep reading it. probablly simpler if you just read it again.
