In a free country people are going to say all sorts of things, ain't no point getting all bent out of shape over every damned thing that is said that you don't agree with.
    The thing is, a couple of politicians opened their big mouths, tried to make a political issue out of the personal beliefs of a business owner, and now it has apparently backfired. A friend of mine who lives about 30 miles from here, said there is currently a line about a 1/2 mile long waiting to get into the Chick-fil-a right now.

    And so be it. I've never sought out nor denied Chick-Fil-A (seems standard fast food to me), and I won't now. I think that government agents trying to make a case out of this is iffy at best, tyranny at nominal.

    Agreed, which is why I find it hilarious that it didn't work and get the masses all whipped up.

    Did you read before you hit POST?

    Those who feel ashamed because of their bigotry and homophobia have a clear choice, embrace true Christian and American values of tolerance and equal treatment.

    Marriage equality is coming. We'll still have to deal with a generation and a half of homophobes before we get to a place where Americans can be proud about moving away from a time of ignorance and hatred.

    The lines outside Chick-Fil-A are similar to scenes from the civil right era.



    Not exactly the same, but similar.

    These are Romney voters people.

    On 'Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,' supporters crowd the fast food chain's locations as anti-gay stance is under fire* - NY Daily News

    Fast food officially became a weapon in the culture war Wednesday as Chick-fil-A fans crowded locations around the country in support of the restaurant, under fire for its opposition to gay marriage.

    On Facebook, more than 618,000 people said they were taking part in the “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” organized by former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

    And fair enough. You know, I'm one who has oft argued FOR same sex marriage, marriage license is government issued and recognized contract, can't deny the individual their right to contract. But this is just a side show meant to distract from whatever **** they're trying to get passed in Chicago and Boston. It's misdirection and nothing more, it must be recognized for what it is.

    Marriage equality is coming, I push for it and support it. This is not about that.

    Intolerance is OK with those on the left as long as its practiced by only those on the left. Got it...
