    What most of us want is a complete wall of separation between governmental/public institutions and religion. And frankly, this is a perfect example of why that should be. This was a case of politicians, this time liberal, trying to use their influence and power to punish someone for their religious belief. It is wrong when public schools post the 10 Commandments and it is wrong when politicians try to intimidate people who believe in those same commandments.

    Total separation.

    Polygamy? You mean TRADITIONAL marriage?

    But if you did eat at Chick-Fil-A and things didn't work out -- you may want to report them here --> Chick-Fil-A | Got Food Poisoning ?

    This is me using my free speech power to help keep you better informed about the potential danger of eating at Chick-Fil-A. I've see that link a hundred times today on Facebook. It appears that for a minority of Chick-Fil-A customers, the meal results in painful food poisoning.

    Can't be too careful.
    a site where anyone can say anything against anyone for any reason. sounds legit.

    You didn't actually go to the site did you?

    You post a lie, they have your IP address. You can be sued for libel.

    The great thing about the internet is people can share information, I love TripAdvisor and Yelp.

    I don't know that this is either realistic or desireable. What we believe--whatever that happens to be--is part of who we are and thus how we think and vote. How we define for ourselves and what we think is right.

    The zeal with which some want to strip the "public square" of any reminder of "religion" is at times destructive. I'm thinking about demands to remove long-standing crosses and statuary and so on. These are part of our history. Smacks of zealotry to me, and I don't like it.

    Zealot Atheist don't consider themselves as promoting a religion, even though Atheism is a religious choice.

    NYC is a place where we celebrate diversity
    Apparently not. You're trying to run it out of town!

    Never read it. But if it says people should be free to practice their religions while keeping the government completely out of it, on that count, I would agree with it.
