    Come on people, this is ******* pathetic.

    All this drama over the CEO giving his opinion in an interview and the fact that, *gasp*, he's legally donating to causes he believes in.

    This only strengthens the stereotype some hold of liberals and homosexuals being overly sensitive, in response to mere opinions!
    The whole thing is a huge overrreaction on both sides. "The Mayor of Boston said mean things about Chick-fil-A! Let's rise up and show them yankees!"

    I don't think it was merely "mean things" as you put it, but that there seemed to be a serious suggestion by Rahm that Chick-fil-A not set up shop in Chicago. The mere hint of politicians suggesting businesses not come to their cities/towns because of viewpoints alone is bothersome.

    Then you should support your local businesses and buy american made products to show your support for outsourcing.

    Seems like some on the right have differing opinions of what constitutes rights depending on the subject. Some times a right is inalienable and inherent regardless of a court's opinion on it. Other times, a right doesn't exist until a court approves it. So which is it?
    It is both of course. Our opinions on what is inalienable does't mean squat. Your 14th amendment claim is only that and not law or decided.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Yeah, but oh well. I prefer to spend my money on local shops than big corporations, even if you spend a bit more. The Green's Bean in Sparta is a pretty good coffee house, and much much better than anything you're going to get from Dunkin Donuts, which as I have said is taken as some form of actual coffee house around here. I don't think people in New Jersey have any taste. Must be all the pork roll.

    I support SSM because I believe that they are not getting fair treatment. I really don't understand homosexuality, but I don't like how people are just plain mean to them. All these people supporting ChicKfil-A, claim that it is against God for same sex marriage, well God is also against treating people unfairly and being hateful and some of these Chickfil-A people make some awful comments regarding gays. I guess they think God appreciates their behavior toward one of His creations.

    I kinda found that funny too. Hey...we are all going to protest by shopping at the WalMart. Look...the crowd was HUGE! What a success!

    Personally...Im holding my protest on black Friday and I am encuraging everyone that believes in my cause to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving. If lots of people show up...I will use that as evidence that people support my cause. Fingers crossed!
