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

    Reading what the Chick-fil-A head honcho said about gay marriage reminds me what I have said/typed for years:

    Imo, all major religions are for the weak and/or the ignorant and/or the desperate.

    As I said in another thread...my preference to them over all other fast food could be due to the fact that I'm not a huge burger fan. I prefer nuggets or a good chicken sandwich over a burger any day when it come to fast food. Now, it is fast food. It's subject to the same issues...IE cold waffle fries or nuggets are no less crappy than cold McD's fries and McNuggets. However, I just have basically found that when actually served hot, their food is much tastier to me and more than that...over all service tends to be better on average at the ones I've gone to all across Virginia. Less likely to get cold food, more/better sauces to pick from, more likely to have friendly workers, more likely to have a clean interior, more likely to be accomodating and friendly about requests, and (a big one for me especially in northern virginia) more likely to have individuals working there that I can understand and that can understand me. Note, that's not to say non-foriegn/non-white workers...but rather people who simply can understand and speak English fluently, not brokenly. When dealing with a service industry reliant on language...this is a big plus for me.

    Everyone undoubtably has a different experience as they go in...but for my money, it's the best fast food chain in my area.

I suppose you would support those white folks rallying to preserve Jim Crow laws and the rights of the KKK to terrorize black people under the same logic? Straight people don't get 'bashed' by gays. The White rulers of the South didn't get 'bashed' by blacks during the 50's and 60's.

    If you weren't aware of all this, why are you posting in this thread?

    People, when you don't have all the facts, stay on the sidelines, please.
    So, since ONE MAN, that happens to own a successful business, shares the views of THOUSANDS of black preachers, he and his INDEPENDENTLY owned outlets are to be singled out for special "a few degrees from hate" speech "penalties" by the annointed libtards of our nation. This is all in the name of "tollerance" and freedom of religion and freedom of speech, we are told. Yet ANY opposition to this INSANE action by the rainbow paraders is seen as "bigotry", rather than simply the common sense supporting the existing state marriage laws until they are changed by a MAJORITY vote of our elected representatives. Is only this FUTURE plank of the demorats "platform" to be treated this way, or is ANY objection to the demorats PROPOSED changes in their "evolving" positions to be met with similar bans, boycots and public tantrums? This nation neither needs nor wants mob justice, "selective" enforcement of the laws or for our elected gov't officials to threaten to use the force of law to "help" enforce their NEW positons, that lack the very backing of law that they SAY that they have "sworn" to uphold?

    The most idiotic part of that post was where DWBH seems to think that gay rights = anti-straight.
    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.

    It makes no difference why. The point is, the problem is with children, and just as it doesn't make heterosexuality all about pedophilia, it doesn't say a thing about homosexuality.

    I know of no other national chains that overtly support discrimination in this way (which isn't to say that there aren't any). "Thousands of black preachers," on the other hand, are not an entity that can be held accountable unless you happen to be a member of their congregation. They aren't selling anything, and most of them are simply not very high profile.

    Is only this FUTURE plank of the demorats "platform" to be treated this way, or is ANY objection to the demorats PROPOSED changes in their "evolving" positions to be met with similar bans, boycots and public tantrums?
    Only ones relating to civil rights and discrimination.

    Well, haven't we all seen the mass rallies of gay people demanding that straight rights be rescinded or eliminated?

    No, me either.

    Well, we did shove civil rights down some folks throats, so to speak, and rightly so. The same can be said here. It is dying, as noted above, but a wrong should never be called anything other whan what it is, wrong. To be allowed to discirminate with no just cause is wrong, and I see no way around that.
