The SSM debate is NOT about keeping things the SAME it is about making them DIFFERENT, thus the SSM debate is about CHANGING marriage laws not about KEEPING THEM THE SAME. This may seem a "minor detail" to you, but it is not to the state legislators that must represent their constituents in order to remain in office. One only needs to compare the turn out of Wednesday's CFA "eat in" to that of today's CFA "kiss in" event to see the CLEAR difference in the numbers involved in each position.

    Im sorry but have you gone to the FRCs website? They arnt just against SSM but they are against homosexuals having the same rights as heterosexuals period.

    "We oppose the vigorous efforts of homosexual activists to demand that homosexuality be accepted as equivalent to heterosexuality in law, in the media, and in schools."

    Human Sexuality Research Area

    The FRC spreads bold faced lies about homosexuality claiming things that we know are false such as homosexuals are more likely to molest children and children in households headed by same sex parents tend to do worse then children in households raised by opposite sex parents.

    So yes CFA is funding bigotry. It is their right to do so however.

    And they aren't open on Sunday. They lose a lot of after-church diners that way, but it may also be a good way to cut costs.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Chick Fil a isn't a government entity, and therefore has no power over the People of the United States.
    Chick-Fil-A funds organizations which lobby the federal government for a pro-discrimination agenda.

    Demanding professionalism from elected officials, and staying within the boundaries of office are pretty radical ideas these days for some reason.
    It's pretty radical to expect them to behave like perfect gods instead of human beings who say dumb things. If you really think that Rahm Emanuel should be imprisoned for making a rash comment, or that Rick Perry should be imprisoned for treason for half-jokingly threatening to secede, then you are a completely irrational and impractical person.

    And supporting a flip flopping dictator in the process.
    I see. So now we're going to randomly rant about Obama rather than discussing the subject at hand. How fun.

    Now you're just getting emotional. You need to simmer down if you expect this conversation to continue.

    Chick-Fil-A funds organizations which lobby the federal government for a pro-discrimination agenda.
    So do a lot of people. Section 3 of DOMA is still going to fail, so if Cathy wants to waste his money, that's his problem.

    I was thinking more along the lines of firing him for his corruption, and possibly fining him for certain acts, but keep twisting my words into the worst possible extremes. You're only discrediting yourself. I see absolutely nothing radical about expecting professional behavior from elected officials, especially when officially addressing the public.

    No, still talking about Rahm Emmanuel.

    Nah, he should be impeached for it being only half-jokingly. Maybe other Americans think it treasonous, but some think we have the right to do so and if you haven't noticed, a lot of Texans just ain't to worried about what other people think.

    You might feel freedom of speech entitles the government to persecute private citizens, but most American's like myself believes it protects us from such actions.

    That goes for the rest of you who "liked" his post and at the same time, spit on the constitution just as he did.
