I am gay but I don't think Dan Cathey and Fred Phelps are the same. Cathey made the mistake of making his beliefs very public, but he is not organizing mass protests at funerals of service men and victims of hate crimes. I don't agree with Cathey any more than you do, but I don't think he is as soulless and hate-filled as Phelps.

apparently there is NO MISTAKE attributed to Cathey. It has been well known that chick fil a is owned by traditional Christians. they make a statement every week by being closed on Sunday.

Until the day we have no more freedom of religion and freedom of speech it is necessary for leaders like Cathey to try to keep the country off the path to communism, socialism and similar.

The communist party USA and other liberals push GAY RIGHTs as a political agenda, but mature communist countries EXECUTE GAYS

why would any gay American want to allow communist and liberals to use them as a political pawns when it is well documented that Communist Execute GAYS?

No traditional Christians are going to allow you to be executed for being gay.

don't work so hard to eliminate yourself

I predict that under Socialist Medicine in the USA that after the socialist get enough power that the expensive AIDS treatments will be limited

they will say that your behavior caused you to be at high risk for AIDS so the government does not have to pay

as socialism evolves to communism as the plan outlines, there will be no need for any more gay right

gay rights are a self destructive political tactic NOT Something Designed to help Gay People,

I don't understand the "mistake" part. How is it a mistake when you just state what you believe in? Is it not a mistake to say that you are FOR gay rights? NO! It should never be a mistake for saying what you believe in! All of this has gotten so out of hand it's unbelievable. It seems that these days that if someone disagrees with any other group on their beliefs that they get bashed!

The tactic is called "DIVIDED WE FALL". Issues like gay rights are used to divide the country with hopes that capitalism will fail and socialism can take over.

it works because most people (on both sides) do not really understand what is going on

soros understands and makes billions because people remain ignorant to the tactics

Actually I agree with you, and it's "my mistake" for using such poor wording! ha ha

Hopefully those of us who are gay and our gay friends will not go to Chick-Fil-a (or support the Boy Scouts or other companies/organizations who openly discriminate) and those who agree with these views will support them. Free speech is free speech, it works both ways (unfortunately even for heinous groups like the Westboro Baptist Church, KKK, Neo-Nazi groups, etc.)

As for the gay marriage debate, we could go on for months on that and there would still be people for and against, though I have to admit that in the past 10-15 years I think the "fors" are getting more in number. Hopefully in my lifetime the "againsts" will learn to believe that for most of us, we are just hard working, honest, committed couples who want the same fundamental rights as everyone else. I don't want to stage a protest or march in a parade, I just want the assurance that if I'm in a coma then my partner will not be barred from my hospital bedside. If I went to Vegas and in a drunken stupor married a man I had known for 3 hours, he would automatically be entitled to be at my bedside and without question inherit everything I have (or don't in my case!). What is so wrong with my partner of 15+ years being able to do that?

Bullshit. Name these "mature Communist countries." Virtually all the countries that still execute gays do so because of RELIGION. Iran is the worst offender, thanks to its religious fanatics. And in many cases, like Uganda, it's directly due to the influence of American religious groups like the ones to which Mr. Cathey so proudly donates millions to anti-gay groups. Exodus International is a prime example.

I hate to disappoint those who think Mr. Cathey and Westboro Baptist Church are so different. They are two peas in a pod. The only difference is Mr. Cathey pays people (American Family Assn), already cited as a hate group by Southern Poverty Law Center to do his bidding. They work extra hard to take rights away from gays and have them deported to countries where they are slaughtered. To be fair, that makes Westboro seem mighty tame.

The Real Attitude of Communism Towards Gays
by
Reverend Mageson666

"And a senior Maoist leader, Dev Gurung - former commander of the Maoist militia in the western part of Nepal, and now minister of Local Government - was quoted in December in the New Delhi, India- based daily The Asian Age as proclaiming, "Under Soviet rule there were no homosexuals in the Soviet Union. Now that they are moving towards capitalism, homosexuals may have arisen there as well. So homosexuality is a product of capitalism. Under socialism this kind of problem doesn't exist."

Remember that "Under Soviet rule there were no homosexuals in the Soviet Union."

there are 5 communist countries remaining

North Korea is probably the most communist and ant-gay rights they claim they have no gays and no aids

2nd I'd say vietnam

then Laos, cuba

and least communist and moving toward capitalism is China

guess you are right and you know more about gay rights than I know, because it looks like there is only one true communist country left at this time which is North Korea

so that should have been stated "mature communist COUNTRY" not countries

although being publicly gay in any of the remaining communist countries could be risky, we probably don't get all the TRUE Gay Rights stories from the communist, that's just how it works

I have no problem if gay people with an attitude don't eat at chick fil a,

that would be like if all the people who are not gay decide not to buy anything from amazon.com because they disagree with their position on gay rights

let's divide everybody into groups and pick what we buy based on political positions...let the gov regulate based on political positions like those mayors wanted...what freakin losers..sounds like a step towards communism (Marxism)to me

looks like a loser agenda for gays

should the pedophiles get their own set of rights maybe they sell chicken too. what's it called the man boy club
