<quoted text>What I have been unable to understand is why a Holstein (milk cow) is telling us to 'Eat Mor Chiken'. CHIK-FIL-A sells ice cream and milkshakes, both dairy products. The beef cows are mostly Hereford and Aberdeen Angus.
When you mature, you will then understand how and why Co's advertise their products.. In the mean time, disregard the milk cow and concentrate on eating your Chicken Nuggets. Milk is good for you, but not with hamburgers, only drink the dairy products with your Ckicken, twice the protien.

Thus a true christian understands that forgiveness surpasses the morality predicated by the Holy Catholic Bible. Forgiving is about releasing another man from the chains (mans interpretation of the Bible) used as subjugation, to forgive yourself for judging others.

Would the reaction be any different if he said something just as hateful and stupid about black Americans or Jewish Americans or Muslim Americans or any other minority group in the U.S.?
Hateful you're the one that's hateful may a loaded cement truck quash you!!!!

O m Goodness, the ones detailed are only a minor fraction of what those perverts get up to.

You want to read the medical details in hospitals.

Phil On Growing Up in Pre-Civil-Rights-Era Louisiana
“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say,‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”
Please point to the "Racist" Statement in this quote?
Or the homophobia in this one
“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
I'll wait.

I'm sorry, why did you type your post in the Clingon language? Too many "Star Trek" conventions under your belt? Do you wear Mr. Spock ears when you visit them?

The booby got booby trapped. It's a software for folk who don't appreciate other folk cutting and pasting from their website that usually rides around on apostrophes. You try to violate their rights to their material, by pasting it on another website and surprise.

The funniest things, and biggest fails, that happened in 2013.
A&E's 'suspension' of Phil Robertson to show support for GLAAD.
Cracker Barrel's attempt to remove DD merchandise in an effort to show support for GLAAD. I bet that made GLAAD very GLAD.
