Your references trying to mislead others concerning family organizations is much less relevant than e.g. me posting a link to some fat-ass transsexual in Florida injecting people with Home Depot silicone as a fake cosmetic surgeon as representative of the GLBT community.

You're trying to mislead others concerning the chemicals used to induce a proper humptybutt for only $700

Wow, what a zinger...You're not even a very good troll, are you?

So, what...Are you like a completely dedicated knuckle-dragger, or just kind of a hobbiest?

Like, did Satan hide dinosaur bones all over just to trick us into believing in science? The world is 6000 years old and carbon dating is an elitist plot against the noble christian? All liberals hate babies and want to sacrifice then to their unholy leader? Global climate change is a trick to steal jobs from Americans? Freedom is a code word for wild sex parties and orgies in the streets? If we came from monkeys why are there still monkeys?

What's your level of dedication here?

It is profoundly unfortunate that this is the extent of your understanding of this issue. It certainly depresses me to find myself reading your post, and be faced with such a lack of comprehension and critical thought.
You are not participating in a thoughtful debate of the issue - sorry, but you obviously aren't applying critical thinking to this. I really can't respond to as much misinterpretation, misinformation, and misunderstanding as you somehow managed to cram into that one poorly written paragraph...
It's like you have somehow missed every facet of our process, system, and indeed even the very basic tenets of our society.
We're having totally different conversations, so we are not communicating. I can't possibly debate with someone who doesn't understand what they are debating.
what heck are you talking about? I simply said you can't tell him where he can spend his money. I go to the restaurant a lot I have never been kicked out for being gay never had anyone be rude and hell I know gay people who work there. Again I just think its a waist of time to go after one person when there are WAY bigger problems out there. Its people like you who are VERY closed minded and only think there should be one way of thinking who makes big deals out of nothing. I have straight Christian friends I know are against gay marriage because that is their belief they go by the Bible their is NOTHING AND I MEAN NOTHING WRONG with going by the Bible and they know I'm gay but they don't tell me I'm going to hell and I don't call them bigots for thinking the way they do. EVERYONE is allowed to their own opinion. Ugh this country is goingbto hell because people like you are making a communist country. People can't even live by the Bible.'s word cause people throw a fit. If you want Christians to keep their opinions to them self's? Because it offends you., well fine then don't do nothing to offend them. Don't want to eat at the place fine don't its obvious he don't need your business he still has plenty, but my big gay butt will be in the chick-fil-a drive thru getting me a damn good chicken sandwich. Good day

What the heck Am I talking about? If you understood that, we Would be having a conversation...

Your saying a lot, most of it is either mind-numbingly oversimplified, and therefore missing most of the point, or just plain old wrong... Like that quote. Really? Thomas Jefferson said that, did he? To whom? When? Where?... He didn't say that. Ever. To anyone. That's just plain old wrong. Don't know why you think he did...My *guess* would be you are unfamiliar with the stuff he actually did say, because you never READ any of it yourself. You saw some bastion of stupidity online where some twat said he said that, believed that twat for no particular reason, and without any though of your own, and posted it here for us. I, however, have read the works and wisdoms of TJ, and the book from which that quote actually originates. So, I know it wasn't even an American that wrote it, not even this continent.

And, like that quote, you are missing the truth of what is happening. Is it the be all end all of homosexual rights, to boycott this one multi-million dollar company? No, it's just the "in" protest of the week. Why? Because a single, individual citizen stated his beliefs? No. Because a huge company, with millions of dollars is donating lump sums of dough to groups that are totally dedicated to anti-homosexual legislation? Because when the head of this company stated his beliefs some people said- wait, lets look at this companies real agenda....Yes. It's just one little piece in a puzzle that's been being assembled for years and years. All the pieces together make something -one piece alone just looks like a pointless little nothing. But, together, they make a life for homosexuals.

What you're trying to tell me is: If I hear that a man wants to burn down someones home, but he needs more money for the gas to do it... and I give money to him, because I want their house to burn as well-I am innocent of burning down a house. I didn't do it, I just paid for it. I'm not an arson, and no one should try to hold me accountable for how I used my money. Really? What if I add some more links to that chain. What if I write a note that says "Burn that sh*t" on the money and give it to his nephew, who gives it to his mom, who gives it to his sister, who gives it to him. I never even saw the guy...so, that makes it all OK right? It's my money, no one can tell me how to spend it, and I didn't burn anything....Think about it.

I should have known from your first post, that you sniffed glue and welded your frontal lobes.
Wow, while I Am flattered you're thinking about my holes and lobes, you didn't answer me. LOL, an "excellent troll", I have yet to be impressed....

Since this is Not a quote by Thomas Jefferson, but you apparently believe a quote from him is worthwhile and should hold some weight or value to us...Let's explore some actual thoughts this man shared during his life...

It behoves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others; or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own.
-Thomas Jefferson

Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.
-Thomas Jefferson

Do not bite at the bait of pleasure till you know there is no hook beneath it.
-Thomas Jefferson

I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education.
-Thomas Jefferson

You are very closed minded its really sad. If you don't want to spend your money there then don't no on cares but you cant tell people they cant or shouldn't because the guy said something you don't agree with. Its pretty selfish really they tell people to take the money they would spend on chick-fil-a and donate to gay rights funds which is fine if you want to do that but I personally would choose sick or starving children before I would worry about getting married to my partner. sorry I was misinformed of who said it so get the stick out of your a$$ and stop acting like your so high and mighty. I mean look at you. Just your pic I can tell your against Christians. So don't worry about what my opinion is I said get over it now go back to your little vampire cave cut yourself or whatever it is you freaks do now day sacrifice some more animals whatever makes happy

LOL, your really quite badly afflicted with stupid, aren't you? It's cool, I guess...Well, not really, since stupidity Is a choice. I am totally against stupid, I think it's an abomination, and should be driven out of our society. I don't believe anybody has the right to be stupid, and those who choose to live the perverted lifestyle of stupidity should be censored from the rest of us; after all, I don't want my children learning stupidity from the stupid. I don't want to see the stupid out in public, glorifying their disgusting lifestyle. I don't think the stupid should force their affliction on me, nor do I believe I should have to feel bad or apologize for not embracing the stupid and their stupid beliefs. I don't feel bad for not being stupid, I'm a proud to be anti-stupid.

But, anyway...This doesn't even effect me, honestly. I would never eat there anyway, I never have before. I prefer not to eat crap. I'm not gay, and I'm already married. I don't have to "earn" that right, I already have it. I don't use currency, so I don't have to decide what to spend it on. The last lump of money that ended up in my hands got cut up into dozens of little hearts that I gave away to random passers by.

My first post was about the 1st amendment, mostly. Although, I do believe in solidarity and support to movements regarding equality and human rights. That's still what really drew me into the whole thing. I'm just completely appalled by the fact so many people apparently have absolutely no understanding of the Constitution. Citizens who don't even know what their rights actually are can hardly expect to use them, to really value them, or preserve them. Like you and your total failure to comprehend the 1st amendment. You don't know what it even is, have absolutely no understanding of it. I can tell. It's nauseatingly obvious to anyone reading your attempts at thought. You depress me. I don't even actually support our current system, but at least I understand it.

Why because I think everyone is entitles to there own opinion because I think people should be able to do what they want with their personal money? Then fine yes I'm stupid very stupid I guess because. I think communism is wrong and that is basically what people like you are turning this place into "oh he said something I don't agree with boo hoo Im going to boycott&#733; I hope you dont use gas Bc you where they get most of our oil? Um the middle east do you know what the do to gays?? They get stoned to death so next time you or anyone you know are filling up your car be sure to remember where your money is going. Hippocrate country is what we are living in, just like the people who get out and protests coal mining I bet 99% of them go home after a long day of protesting and turn on the lights to the house if they where really against it they would be going home to like the candles. If your going to get that mental over people not thinking the way you want them to your in for a very long disappointing life and now I feel sorry for you

Robert Byrd was in the KKK. If it is good enough for him then it should be good enough for the US Congress. Wonder how much taxpayer money went to the KKK?

If Robert Byrd were alive today he would divert taxpayer money to support the Chic Fila chain. Bless his heart. Obama is lucky Robert is gone.
