    Chick-Fil-A made a fortune after the liberal scum in America raised their empty heads about that franchise not loving our poor little gay community. I laugh at how hard the liberal trash try to make a splash and only come drowned. "Better Story, Better plan, Papa Johns................. Bankroll.

    Tell me the significance of the question asked of a pizza joint then?

    I was not commenting on her position, but rather on her ability to so succinctly express it. No doubt the result of a fist class education and erudition.

    From reading the original story it seems her family were the victims of a liberal journalist trying to strum up controversy.
    More like she is a victim of her own stupidity and ignorance.
    My views are my views, then there is the Christian view:

    Whether it was dripping with significance, or had none doesn't tell you what that reporters political views are.

    i hope that businesses don't boycott the entire state, as many have called for. i think it'd be unfair to the large portion of residents who don't support the legislation.
    Do you think other countries with harsh laws regarding homosexuality are known for spending large sums of money on Apple products?

    no my problem is that it is the people of those countries who are exploited for cheap labor. they are already living in poor conditions, why does apple (And many other corporations) take advantage of them? at least if youre going to take offense to discrimination anyway. it just strikes me as hypocritical to use that platform to condemn indiana for hypothetical violations of ones rights while exploiting people who are actually experiencing much worse discrimination.

    sorry i know im getting off tangent

    Now while people jumped to donate money to a pizza business that really only managed to piss off fanatics and zealots in the gay rights movement let us consider what they did not donate that money towards...

    Children starving in Africa.
    Cancer research.
    Displaced refuges from war torn countries.


    Glad we have our priorities straight.
    How much did you donate to those causes today?
