    You do realize that while the South was doing slavery, the North was doing child labor and indenturement, right? Or did you skip that history course. For every dumb**** thing the South has done, the Northern states have an equally ugly companion piece.

    Your post is rife with bigotry as you rail against it.

    Really? So civil rights activists that campaigned against the Klan were bigots?

    The Polish Underground State that acted against Nazism were bigots?

    Difficult to say what's more stupid--the fact that the "bigotry against bigots" excuse has historically been dismissed as idiotic--or the fact that modern day right wingers still try to use it

    Bigots are those that try (or aid in the effort) to deny legal rights to a specific group of people that are granted to everyone else, when the basis of that denial is purely arbitrary (i. e. no other reason than to discriminate).

    Groups such as the FRC are examples of this since they all favor denying the legal recognition of marriage to anyone whose mate is of the same sex, without offering any rationale for that denial other than discredited myths (i. e. gays destroy families, molest kids more, etc.)

    Groups that fight discrimination, i. e. GLAAD, OTOH, do not deny anyone legal rights. A boycott against Chick Fil A does not deny the legal right of that establishment to operate, nor does a town exercising its legal ability to deny permits for a business to operate (since it is free to operate elsewhere where it's granted a permit), so it's not bigotry.

    It would only amount to bigotry if GLAAD enacted (or supported the enactment of) a law that would prohibit businesses from operating/obtaining licenses anywhere solely because its owners/CEOs were homophobic, and that's not being done.

    Here's the problem, I know more about the Chick-fil-a's religion than he does.

    His is a twisted, perverted version of Christianity.

    You do realize that the South was doing both child labor AND human bondage, right? Perhaps making excuses for slavery isn't such a hot idea?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Child labor was actually bigger in the South (at a time when it was mostly opposed in the North) because of the cotton mills in the South.

    Thanks for citing yet another embarrassment for White southerners

    The simply fact is, that if he just simply said he was a Christian no one would be boycotting, or not wanting to go to his business. No one is mad at him for being a Christian.

    What people are upset about is his comments, and the fact that they donate money to hate groups.

    That is what is happening here, so your whole argument is not based in reality, and shouldn't be taken seriously.
