    Let's go to 'iwaspoisoned.com' and see how things worked out yesterday.

    Where: Chick-Fil-A, Carbondale, Illinois SIUC Campus
    When: 01-Aug-2012,
    What: I had my usual chicken sandwich and waffle fries and wound up vomiting a few hours later and diarrhea really runny along with dehydration…. When I spoke to a manager he said “people need to quit calling and you deserve the way you feel you f****tt”
    Where: Chick-Fil-A, Dallas, Texas
    When: 01-Aug-2012,
    What: Sausage breakfast burrito, been vomiting and diarrhea all day afterwards
    Where: Chick-Fil-A, Dallas, Texas
    When: 01-Aug-2012,
    What: Had a breakfast burrito this morning, about 4 hours later I started vomiting and diarrhea at the same time, I’ve spent most of the rest of the day in the bathroom or in the fetal position in bed. I can barely keep water down now, and the smell of anything makes me want to vomit
    Only three reports of food poisoning yesterday. Looks like the invisible man in the sky was busy with other matters. Still wouldn't risk going there and angering the Big Guy.

    Actually, thinking about it, yesterday I likely put on clothes potentinally made in a sweat shop, jumped into my environment destroyer, stopped in to get Hugo Chavez Gas, then after checking the time on my suicide-inducing slave wage created phone determined I had enough time to stop and get some hate chicken.

    Of course, only hate chicken is the big to do on facebook and will make me feel so high and mighty because all my friends will hit "like" and I can act like I'm so much better than other people...so I should've just skipped the hate chicken that way I could proclaim I'm some kind of great noble person who *really* gives a **** about what businesses may do 2 or 3 steps down the line with my money.

    In your opinion they're hate groups and pro-discrimination groups.

    Are these groups tarring and feathering anybody?
    Performing lynchings?
    Throwing people into gas chambers or ovens to fry?
    Standing outside of military funerals with "God hates fags" signs?

    Or are they fighting in court and through lobbying to prevent gay marriage? 'Cause even if they're wrong about gay marriage, they have every right to protest against it.

    this type of disrespect toward religion is just as bad as any anti gay remarks anyone else has made. mr cathy said his opinion about what marriage was, this is just openly mocking millions of people because their beliefs are different. Why does no one around here condemn these types of remarks?

    Well, it was his whole comment about "our generation" being "arrogant and prideful" and all that bull**** about "we think we know better than God what constitutes marriage" that really rubbed me the wrong way. He was essentially accusing others of being arrogant and prideful while doing the same in sticking to his own construct of what marriage is, which is ironic and hypocritical at the same time.

    It's like when someone says to you "You're going to hell" and I'm like "well who the **** told you, asshole? Did God send you a fax?" That is the height of arrogance and self-righteousness, and its an attitude that's not backed up by anything other than irrational faith. Whatever happened to "Judge not lest ye be judged?"

    Apart from that, the whole argument about "biblical marriage" is plain bull****. The Bible never explicitly defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Not only that, the Old Testament at least supports polygamy and concubinage, and rape victims are required to marry their rapists.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    re: Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day brings out supporters, protesters [W:529]

    Really...are we really having to reach so far to attack people that we need to compare "I don't believe the government should recognize and bestow additional benefits to homosexual marriages" to "GOD HATES FAGS", People who support the notion of Gassing Jews?

    I remember hearing all the time how the world isn't black and white and you shouldn't say "you're with us or against us" and other such equiviocating things.....but when it comes to civil rights, disagreeing with changes to a law is fine to compare as equals with Nazi's and proclaiming things like GOD HATES FAGS while protesting a military funeral.

    It's wonderful to see that the Godwining of this thread is such a bipartisan effort and began from the first few posts right up into the 200's

    how original. another person looking for small parts of the bible that are in no way appliciable today to try to make an entire faith of people look bad while ignoring 99% of the book. Hey you want to do the muslim faith next? Then we can mock the jews for their faith too! Hell lets openly mock anyone who's faith differs from yours and pretend we are taking the high road for it. Sounds fun!

    In my defense, I was trying to make the point that there are ways to reject gay marriage without being a raging asshole, and that people should focus on those who are raging assholes instead of making giant issues out of people who share their views more politely.

    He's not really trying to make anybody look bad. He's pointing out the reality of selective application. It does happen a lot in the modern world.
