Amazin' how one word can explain so much about a person. I always knew why you were so bitter but this one word pretty much confirms it.

Hopefully more businesses will follow Chick Fil A stance and parents once again let their children walk to the neighborhood stores.

You are completely nuts...what in the world does that comment have to do with gay people? your kids cannot walk to the store because of gay people?
I was always taught it is not our job to judge or condemn...people who are salivating at the chance to spew their intolerance and hateful remarks are not existing in the image of christ...
everyone is of course entitled to their own opinion, but much of the money given by chickfila goes to hate groups such as exodus international who push countless young people to suicide every year because they teach them they are not ok. anyone can have a child, friend, or family member who faces this issue and chooses suicide. i pray i never have to face that...
everyone is so caught up in the feverish frenzy to support chickfila that you forget about the effects to real people. christianity is not represented in any of this horrid, judgemental, frenzied behavior...it iis more like the behavior of those who executed jesus...

Here's a video of the chaotic scene in Kingsport. Nearly a dozen cops were directing traffic and closed lanes of 11W. The drive-thru line stretched at least a quarter of a mile down the highway. There's also interviews with supporters and protesters.

You've attacked every christian group and business from the Boy Scouts to Chick-Fil-A. Using terrorist actions and hate speech against anyone who disagrees with you. For years you had your own clubs and restaurants. We left you alone and families stayed out of your places.

You attacked Mr. Cathy for his opinion and attempted to force the country to boycott his business, but your plan backfired. Next you vandalized Chick-Fil-A by spray painting hate messages on their buildings.

Penn State covered up for years a coach who raped young boys. This county has been afraid to report these attacks for fear of being attacked themselves. It's not hate speech to report a homosexual attack on a child.

If young homosexuals are killing themselves, don't blame Mr. Cathy or others for their beliefs. It's you that keeps telling them that homosexuals are normal and the majority of citizens support them.

What did they think when thousands showed their support to Chick-Fil-A? When your counter protest of kissing homosexuals at Chick-Fil-A failed? Your young sex partners now realized how small their support is.

Sexual predators are a problem. That's why the law require them to register, stay away from children, and not be within a 1,000 ft of a school.

Well, you were taught dead wrong then. It is definitely our job to judge if something is sin and condemn it. The sould is another matter.

It's time we stood up for our First Amendment rights and said what we believe! Disseminating what we believe is constitutionally protected free speech, not hate speech. The founding fathers of the United States understood the need for citizens to speak freely in public places.
