    Digsbe...would you feel the same way about his "right" to "free speech"....had he said that he believed that inter-racial marriage is abhorrant or that Chik-fil-A believes that Black people are inferior to white? or that Jews are a dirty people and shouldn't patronize their restaurants?

    This isn't about "free speech"....its about hatred and intolerance.

    “I believe what the Bible says (about marriage),” Chauncy Fields told us after wolfing down a breakfast of chicken and biscuits. “So I came out here to support Chick-fil-A and the movement.”
    If there is one thing that Americans can do and do good is wolfing down grease and fat. That line just cracks me up.

    I'm not arguing the Christian or theological belief behind marriage or homosexuality, that's for another thread.
    If it's a right for everyone else, then it should be a right for them to. I don't see anywhere that drinking out of the same water fountain as other races is a right, but a little thing called common sense prevailed in that case.

    Call it a right or call it a privilege, I don't care. Either way, you are denying a giant group of people the ability to do things everyone else can do and for no good reason. God already has nothing to do with marriage in this country, so why does it have anything to do with them?

    *Edit:

    Oh, I see what you are saying. Well, SB answered it pretty well for me. He is using his fame, money, and his company to promote his views, support groups that lobby this issue, and again, threaten the country with the judgment of God.

    I didn't eat at Chik-fil-A BEFORE this because their food is nasty.....but I certainly wish that I could say that I'm not eating there because of their intolerance and bigotry.....

    Free speech covers speech that might be intolerant or showing hatred towards others. How you feel about the speech plays no part in it.

    The government deny's gays the right to marry, no organization prevents them from doing so. The organisations just don't support SSM and some believe that homosexuality is unhealthy or wrong.

    Many organizations may donate money to Planned Parenthood, which denies children the right to be born and facilitates their killing.

    No, because whatever your views are on abortion, the pro-choice people simply disagree with your assessment that the unborn are people inherently deserving of rights (and so does the 14th amendment of the US Constitution). Whereas gays, like racial minorities, are indisputably people. If you don't think that opposing same sex marriage is the same as opposing racial integration, please explain the difference to me.

    The term is flung around constantly in such a self righteous manner.
    You know who I'm tired of being self-righteous? People who are actively trying to deny rights to their fellow citizens. And that's a far bigger problem than a fast food CEO getting his feelings hurt by a couple mayors making some empty threats.

    That's similar to what a lot of people said regarding civil rights legislation.....i.e...."I don't hate black people....I just don't want them drinking from our drinking fountains or using our restrooms".

    I'm glad that you've evolved Digs.....but to say that denial of basic human rights is not "hatred" ignores the facts.

    I agree....but this isn't about "free speech"...no one is denying this bigots "right" to say whatever ignorant thing he wants. I agree that he should have the right to display his stupidity through his statements....but the right-wing is trying to define this argument as one of free speech. Free speech does not include the right to be free of the consequences of your statements.

    Please link to your messages accusing President Obama of hatred and intolerance for his opposition to gay marriage.
