    But if some idiot politician was claiming he didn't like gay people and was going to use his power of eminent domain to take land from homosexuals, even if he didn't do so and it is "political grandstanding", I bet you and some of your folk there would be up in arms.
    I'd probably be pissed off at him for being such a bigot, but I wouldn't take his threat seriously (especially if he never actually tried to do anything to act on it). And I certainly wouldn't register my opposition to him by buying a chicken sandwich.

    I can't. This is important.

    HAHAH... Awesome, outstanding! If one were near me, I'd go out and eat there everyday.. Ok well not everyday but a lot.

    Free speech is alive and well. Now maybe the idiots that keep saying that gay marriage is finding wide spread support due to their fake and biased polls even though everywhere it's come up for a vote it was turned down resoundingly will realize that perhaps gay marriage isn't as acceptable as some might delude themselves into thinking. At best gaydom tolerated, but I doubt it will ever be accepted as a normally functioning lifestyle choice.

    I wouldn't be caught dead in a Chick-Fli-A-- no pun intended.

    Um...okay. Why would you assume that everyone who shows up to this thing supports Cathy's remarks? You also realize that the issue is evenly split in the polls. That means that half the country could have showed up. And are you really so deluded that you think every polling organization that has polled on this issue is faking it? Even conservative leaning polls have showed strong support for same sex marriage. I think in the excitement you have gone off the wagon, but it is good to see your true colors.

    Look, you want a reaction more to your liking, call Rahm and tell him to SHUT THE **** UP. Bloomberg has it right, and he's pro-SSM. Got it?

    I do not and have never supported Rahm's remarks. This entire thing is utterly hilarious to me. The persecution complex felt by all sides on this debate is remarkable. And has anyone noticed that nobody from the actual gay and lesbian community had any part in this?

    You might catch "the gay" at Sonic though. Of course, the risk of that is much higher at Dairy QUEEN.

    Hehehe.. Poor CT.. Boy this really rubs you up don't it?? LOL

    Let's put it this way sunshine. I doubt VERY MUCH that liberals are out there eating chicken in droves. I suspect greatly that many liberals in this nation suffer from the same problem that the ones here do. Do I need to mention it one more time? As far as polls go, well, they are what they are, exactly that, an annonymous poll. What really counts is the voting booth. Using that metric gay marriage is barely tolerated, and NEVER not once has it been voted in as the law of the land. Which means, (And I'm no genuis just an Ashkenazi Jew) that you're gay cause is a long way off -or- you can continue along your path of having single judges and overwhelmingly democratic legislatures do your bidding. Not a bad tactic but hardly one where one could claim that since 5 states recognize SSM America must be coming around..

    Hm...okay. You seem a bit riled up about all this, but let's assume you are completely right. America is a country that will never tolerate homosexuality as a normal lifestyle. So what? It isn't Uganda. They aren't out killing us. Most people don't care. And frankly as long as I have my relationship I'm happy. While it might be a little harder for me and my partner, we will make due because that is what people who care for one another do. And there are quite a few people out there who do accept and love us for who we are. Nothing really changes.
