    I just don't agree with you.
    So you think it's perfectly OK to advocate for segregation and Jim Crow Laws, as long as it's done with a smile on your face and without blurting out the n-word?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Of course it does. Here, I put it on my fries. Here, I put it on my burger. Here, I put it on my dog. Here, I put it on Rahm Emmanuel's dog. Here, I put it on George Bush's head (no disrespect intended). See, it'll go on EVERYTHING.

    BTW, topic drift notwithstanding, I regard the main issue here as free speech. Sure, speech has consequences, but they are NOT suppose to include retribution from the government simply for stating a contrary opinion. The thugs and goons who stood on the authority of their office and threatened a company for what its leader thought are clearly unamerican and deserving of condemnation. If the people of Chicago don't rise up and throw Emmanuel out of office then they are cowards who don't love freedom. And that goes for all the other cities and wards where the political officials threatened to exclude Chick-fil-A.

    Yep, but let's not pretend that this is just his personal view and not the view of Chick-Fil-A. They are one and the same.

    He was speaking to The Baptist Press, not his board, not his stock holders. He's just running his mouth.
    This isn't the first time he's done it, and he's been defiant when called out on it. If he was just running his mouth, then he would have walked his statement back and/or apologized. Or his board would've made him (if they didn't like the brand image he was projecting).

    Now if he were actively discriminating against homosexuals, I would say you would have a more valid point. But that isn't the case, yes? And in such case it's just an individual running his mouth about his ideals.
    He's not just running his mouth, Chick-Fil-A has donated millions of dollars to pro-discrimination organizations and anti-gay hate groups.

    If the people of Chicago haven't revolted for 1/10 of the **** Daley did, then they ain't gonna do it.

    Yeah, because supporting same-sex marriage is just SO different from supporting segregation, right?
    I'm still waiting for you to explain the distinction. But I'll not hold my breath.

    Did anyone say it wasn't? Do you bother to follow the chain of discussion, or do you just kind of throw out some slightly-relevant talking point and take the conversation in whatever new direction you'd like?

    Or...
    I can just not buy their chicken sandwiches.
