    Sure it doesn't mean they have to, but they are stupid to do otherwise. Personally, I find it hilarious that their stupidity backfired, and showed them for the jerks they are.

    Yep, even in the days of internet and free porn, there's always that one porn shop that never goes away and nobody ever questions its existence. Only time I ever heard of a porn shop being protested was because the dumbass set up shop too close to an elementary school.

    Interpret it as you like?

    I'd think a caucasian like you would understand this better.

    Pretty sure he's pointing out the lulz in a Jewish guy persecuting others due to their religious views.

    I doesn't need to be a "real threat", it just needs to be functionally accomplishable by government. The threat is force. Were they likely running their mouths for political gain? Likely, yes, I can agree to that. But they made the threat and that is something which we cannot allow. For any or our rights, this **** is too important to get bogged down in partisan BS. The government is limited, it must act accordingly, when it does not then it must be punished. Politicians cannot be given free reign, they accepted the contract when they took office, and they must abide by it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    It's not acceptable.
    Yes, it's not acceptable. But "putting stress on a free individual" for a few days until they walked their comments back (and not taking any action anyway) is pretty minor...certainly compared to the ongoing, institutionalized discrimination that homosexuals face. Your priorities are quite out of whack if you believe in going out of your way to support an openly bigoted business just because a mayor "put stress on him" for a week or so. You know what else puts stress upon free individuals wanting to exercise their rights? Being discriminated against. And unlike Rahm Emanuel's petty threat, bans on same-sex marriage have NOT been reversed in most states...and if Chick-Fil-A has their way, they won't be.

    It's coercion, which is unacceptable.

    Did you read the first four words in the post to which you responded?

    So on the one hand, we have a mayor being mean to a business owner and making some empty threats, which he promptly walked back. On the other hand, we have ongoing discrimination against homosexuals, fostered by pro-discrimination lobbyists and hate groups which Chick-Fil-A funds. If your priorities are such that you find the former more unacceptable than the latter, then there is something wrong with you.

    You guys are just dying to make this all about Rahm Emanuel rather than the hateful comments and actions of Chick-Fil-A. Anything to make the world safe for bigotry and discrimination.

    Because for so many, it IS about Rahm Emanuel. The reactionary wing of Conservatism is very strong. To them, it's all about doing the exact opposite of a Liberal. Since Liberals are boycotting Chick-fil-A, that means that Chick-fil-A is the single greatest restaurant in history of cuisine.

    It's not about bigotry, it's just about being the opposite of Libbos.
