    Let me ask you this.....when you see a march of people supporting "gay rights" do you say "Nothing brings out the straight-bashing non-God-fearin' residents of Hooterville more than an opportunity to show their support for other straight bashers?" If not, you're partisan. If you can march in support of being a homo, you can eat in support of being a hetero.

    The large and unsubtle indifference between the two scenarios is that gays have yet to proclaim their continuing and unwavering financial support to entities that seek to categorize the opposition as legally inferior.

    Absolutely idiotic example, gay rights aren't being won at the expense of straights. In other words, those protesting Chick-fil-A aren't protesting against heteros, and those in favor of Chick-fil-A aren't protesting for heteros, they are protesting AGAINST homos. Any slight or harm against heteros through the pursuit of gay rights is perceived rather than real.

    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.

    Fox's Campaign To Defend Chick-Fil-A From Its Anti-Gay Record

    In response to that criticism, which he referred to as "vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry," Fox News host Mike Huckabee declared August 1 to be "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" and asked his audience to eat at Chick-fil-A today in order to "affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse."

    Fox News figures were quick to take up the charge. Fox host Eric Bolling supported the effort by asking Twitter followers to send him pictures of themselves eating at Chick-fil-A. On the July 31 edition of The Five, Bolling aired a few of the pictures, which he said showed that support for Chick-fil-A has "nothing to do with the gay rights discussion."
    Just trying to keep the Fox Newsies informed about what you're really watching.

    Carlson's treatment of the story distils the dishonest narrative that the right-wing media is employing in their simultaneous support of Cathy and his company and their attacks on supporters of marriage equality. What Fox's Chick-fil-A cheerleading consistently ignores is that the company is not only owned and operated by an opponent of marriage equality, but that it has donated millions of dollars to anti-gay groups.

    Through its charitable arm, WinShape, Chick-fil-A donated millions of dollars to organizations such as the Family Research Council, which is listed as an anti-gay "hate group" by the Southern Poverty Law Center. In addition, WinShape has supported Exodus International, an umbrella ministry that supports controversial "ex-gay" legislation, and Alliance Defense Fund, a legal organization that calls protections for LGBT people the "principal threat to your religious freedom." It has also donated to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, an organization that has allegedly "freed" people from homosexuality and has condemned the "impure lifestyle" of homosexuality.

    In addition to funding anti-gay advocacy, WinShape reportedly actively discriminates based on sexual orientation. The website Good For You posted an email discussion showing that WinShape prohibits same-sex couples from participating in programs such as the WinShape Retreat.
    Fox News will never defend the WBC, but they will defend this watered-down version.

    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.
    So Chick-Fil-A wouldn't let gay people in their restaurants?

    "We'll still have to deal..." Ignorance? Hatred?

    From the words as well as the message of your posts you appear to have internalized this issue.

    Do I smell fear? Just sayin...

    What part of 'similar' did you not understand?

    Nice straw man attempt though.

    That was the source in the OP.

    Fox is promoting the event. Real "fair and balanced" handling.

    Wonder what Shep Smith will have to say out this?

    All the partisan jackasses want to make this an issue, Fox ain't immune. I just don't see what the big deal is. Don't go to Chick-Fil-A if you don't want, but this ain't none of the government's business.

    I agree, city Gov can not withhold permits based on bigoted statements.

    I also believe Boycott = free speech.

    Palin does't agree.
