    And they do claim a connection between homosexuality and pedophilia. No doubt. Are we sure they're wrong? Is it possible that pedophilia is committed much more often by homosexual males? I don't know. We know one thing for sure: pedophiles are incurable.

    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.

    Before anyone wants to say "no one's talking about Chick-Fil-A being like WBC", I will point this out and note that it's in response specifically to someone talking about what "Mr Cathy" said.

    Did we both just link the same source?

    BUT, being against SSM sure does seem anti-gay to me. Is it racist to be against inter-racial marriage? If you can say no I will still disagree with you but at least your belief would be consistent.
    Interracial marriage and homosexual marriage is 2 different things...I shouldnt have to explain that to you....being against homosexual marriage is not anti gay...its against marriage except for one man and one woman...

    Which they haven't done. They expressed their opinion, which is also their right.

    It seems rather anti-gay to me. At the end of the day, you're denying them equality, to have the rights and priviledges we have to marry who we love, who we're attacked to, among non-related consenting adults of the same specices.

    With regards to the "good" things, I was listing FRC as one such group as I've heard some complaining about Chick-Fil-A as them donating to "multiple" so I imagine there are more than just the FRC. I'll be forthright in stating I don't know a ton about the FRC and all I've reliably found so far is the SPLC blurb on them which, to be fair as it's my general stance that regardless of side places that seem to have a specific agenda are ones I don't immedietely just take as 100% gospel, is largely unsourced and the few sources they have are sourcing themselves. So my comments regarding the man/some were off base, and poorly got across my actual point in my head which was that there can be a difference between giving money to a group DUE to the hateful things they do and due to other things they do despite the hateful one. Now, that's not suggesting either thing is good as ultimately you're still aiding a group doing a hateful things, and I get that...but when talking about intensity and level of culpability and the amount of hate rightfully put towards an individual or group, I think such a notion is important. When one is attempting to place hateful actions done by a group 2 or 3 steps down the line from Chick-Fil-A proper back onto Chick-Fil-A DIRECTLY...such as in the suggestion its "hate chicken"...then that to me matters a bit on the level at which such criticisms should be cast.
    Here's a video of the FRC's leaders making some hateful, and nonfactual statements.
