    Why is any of that a problem?

    Actually...it is. The very definition of intolerance is the lack of tolerance.

    Now, not all intolerance is BAD. I'm intolerant of child molestors...that's not bad intolerance imho, but it's still intolerance.

    That statement is the most pathetic and stupid thing ever spoken by the right.

    Being against intolerance is called RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    So sayeth the Bible. You know, the book the Christian-Conservatives misuses to be intolerant.

    My sentiments exactly. Never have seen the great attraction. Wendy's has a fried chicken sandwich that is almost identical without those nasty sour pickles. And their waffle fries have a bitter after taste from the grease they're cooked in.

    For me, I could care less what the management's religious or political opinions are in any company as long as it doesn't affect their product or services.

    Cihik-Fil-A didn't say anything though. This wasn't an official business statement. A dude said it, just a dude. You can claim he hasn't recanted, and that's true, but he wasn't speaking on behalf of the company or for the company or setting company policy. This was his personal opinion.

    You don't have to believe it, but it remains a possibility and given enough people it will be realized.

    I think it will demonstrate public interest in allowing people to speak their minds, as I said I'd say swing him from the nearest tree.

Children living with their genetic donors is one of the basic ones. The way things are going, those differences will become less important over time. But the idea that people are irrational or evil for resisting Gay Marriage is pretty far fetched.
    A fine observation.

    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    I don't really give a **** what the Bible says. You're barking up the wrong tree attempting to use the bible to define words to this particular poster. Sorry your bigotted stereotype of a Conservative doesn't work.

    I care more about the dictionary when it comes to what words mean. Lacking tolerance for something is intolerance.

    The only reason you, or others, seem to have an issue with that is because for whatever reason it appears you automatically apply a negative connotation to the word. Such a connotation is not universally inherent within it. There's nothing wrong inherently with being intolerant to things...it's the reasons why one is intolerant, and what they're intolerant of, that begins to define whether that intolerance is a good or bad thing.

    I have, but it's tolerated.

    And secondly all of those arguments you posted could easily be applied to inter-racial marriage which is actually connected to this issue(unlike abortion) and the SCOTUS has clear precedence on how to handle this. It will be legal through SCOTUs decision within the next 5 years, that is my prediction. And it makes the most sense.
    I used abortion for argumentative purposes, I clearly said that. I was trying to point out how we can't just read into the Constitution what we want. I want to read the Constitution to say that it's a violation to allow abortions because I believe that the unborn deserve constitutional rights because I define them as "persons" but I know that legally I am wrong, just as legally it is wrong to somehow say that the Constitution has guaranteed gay marriage when it's not direct at all about it because some people hold the opinion that defining the marriage union without including homosexuality is illegal discrimination.

    Inter-racial marriage is unconstitutional because the Constitution clearly denotes that it is wrong to legally discriminate based on race. I don't believe that as the Constitution stands today that it legally violates states rights and denies them the right to define marriage. Cases have been brought to court that support a states right to define marriage how they see fit and that the government cannot deny that right to the states.

    I've been in and out of the thread for the last few days, and I haven't noticed any anti-gay remarks here. Those who support ChickFilA aren't gay bashers. It's quite the other way round.
