I knew it, I KNEW it!

You don't HAVE a significant other. Anyone as hard ass and unbending as you could not hold onto a loved one longer than you could a soap bubble. In a way it is a relief to know that you are NOT brutalizing some poor sap.

Ok. I figured it out this time.

The gay community hates the meat used in the fast food industry and want everybody to convert to eating a vegetarian diet like them.

And they make up some kind of lie about sexisim so they can sue for discrimination and get a bunch of money to invest in their protests aginst meat eating straight people who disaree with their lifestyle choice.

What you mean is nonsense.

Your moniker is no more real than any other one.

The fact you would actually argue that your actual name is "Curt" is simply nutty. We don't know that, for starters. And even if true it makes your moniker no less anonymous than any used by R1. It's a stupid argument. That is the point.

There's no question of "cowardice" in not registering. It is a ridiculous notion. And again, there can be perfectly sensible reasons not to register. I don't see how a long time poster here could be so unaware of the issues involved in this question.

As for the people who use a different moniker every day, or every ten minutes, we all know pretty well who they are, anyway. So even there there's similar continuity to, say, Daniel or Reverend Alan, who both appear to have multiple,_registered_ monikers.

Is it still too complicated? I feel as though I am corresponding with one of those climate change deniers.

Chick-Fil-A is pandering to no one. And they are not about hate. Gays came out of the closet DEMANDING that society change to accommodate them. All of that is fine to a point. That point is when you insist that everyone participate in what you are doing. Years ago, I thought about what happened in the Civil Rights movement. I am old enough to remember it beginning to present day. At first it was all about equal rights, and almost everyone I knew was entirely in favor Then it crossed a line. That line was when special rights were conferred (Affirmative Action) when suddenly blacks became a favored class and the courts started forcing everyone to fall all over themselves to push blacks into places that they couldn't gain on their own merits. It was a dismal failure as colleges started dragging blacks in to fill their quota even when they weren't qualified. Blacks flunked out right and left because they weren't prepared to be there. When I saw the gay movement heating up, I knew that once "gay marriage" became legal that the courts would get involved and FORCE people to participate. Gay rights would trump religious rights. It is not too late for Christians to make a stand because allowing "gay marriage" to happen means religious rights are damned. All Mr. Cathy did was make a stand for marriage being a man and a woman, That is his belief, and he has the right to that belief just as much as I do. And, frankly, it hasn't hurt Chick-Fil-A one bit except in those liberal cities where the mayors think they can dictate what businesses can function there or not - totalitarian dictator mayors.
By the way, I am no fan of the Bushes. Know too much about them, and I agree that W did a lot of damage. I didn't vote for the guy. But I think Obama is proving that stoned, partying black guys are no better than drunk, partying white guys. His effect on the country has nothing to do with skin color. It is all about him being plugged into the same shadow government that Bush was plugged into. He just has to keep the script (teleprompters) in front of him to function whereas Bush could wing it without the script coming from a family that had been plugged in for generations.

I agree. The shadow government is in control and owns a lot of the politicians, who do their bidding whether Democrats or Republicans. This Hillary Clinton/Jeb Bush 2016 thing they keep touting is two politicians both plugged in to the shadow government. Hillary has been working with them since long before Bill was elected, and Jeb's family has been deeply involved starting with Prescott, his grandfather. I will vote for neither of them.

Good to know. Got any information about their salads?
They are sprayed with all kinds of herbicides, insecticides and all kinds of artificial fertilizers are used to get the heads of lettuce to size earlier than they would naturally. There is almost no known nutrition in their salads. Then add a dressing which is denatured, hydrogenated vegetables oils with lots of high fructose corn syrup and of course lots of red dye #3, blue #2 and yellow #4. Yummm! Not to gloss over all the mono sodium glutamate to trick you taste buds into believing it tastes good and making you want to eat more, and more, and more.

The only "social change" the gay community has ever asked for is to be treated as equals and have the right-wingers and the government stop attacking us and our families. If you've got an example of something beyond that, I'd love to hear it.
Front Line Fighter wrote:

Not even a little bit. Can you give an example of someone being forced to engage in "what (we) are doing"? You and I both know that if someone opened a business and hung a "No Whites, No Christians, No Unmarried Women" sign outside, the right wing would be screaming their heads off about the injustice of it all. But when they do the same thing, they claim it's all about "religious freedom." What a load of crap.

They became a "favored class", as you put it, as the direct result of the constant attacks that they needed protection from. If those attacks hadn't been happening, those laws would never have been necessary. Hate hurts everyone, doesn't it?

You're forgetting that gay couples don't WANT people that hate them involved in their wedding. And, yes, it IS hate when a person tries to use Jesus as an excuse to refuse to be associated with someone. Jesus would NEVER had done that, so the only thing left is intolerance, judgment, and hate.
Front Line Fighter wrote:

That will never happen. Of course, claiming it IS happening is the only defense the religious bigots have, isn't it? They claim that other people's choice of who to marry someone infringes on THEIR religious freedom. The claim that they can force entire school districts to teach lessons according to THEIR personally chosen religious beliefs and any attempt to teach provable science, even to other students, somehow violates their religious right to remain wholly ignorant of everything they don't want to know about.
Front Line Fighter wrote:

It's WAY too late. And "gay marriage" doesn't in any way affect them, so they have nothing to whine about. They're more than welcome to not get gay married if they don't like it.
Front Line Fighter wrote:

And you and Mr. Cathy are both entitled to do that. But you're NOT entitled to be protected from the public results of taking that stand.

But I bet you can't come up with a reason to not like Obama that's not based on lies or cherry-picked right-wing propaganda.

They do that because salt and sugar combined cancel each other out on our tongues and can't be identified. But both salt and sugar excite our taste buds, whether or not we can identify them, making the food taste more delicious to us. When I was in cooking school years ago, if a soup broth got too salty, they just told us to add some sugar until it's not too salty anymore. Works like a charm!
Add to that the fact that salt and sugar are both really cheap ingredients, and food manufacturers just LOVE to load up their products with tons of salt and sugar. It makes their food both cheaper and tastier. If they want their end product salty, they just add more salt than sugar. If it's a sweet product, it's the other way 'round.
Of course, there's that whole "it's going to kill you faster" factor, but they don't care about that.
Not only do "they" not care, the people who buy it and eat it don't care either.

Heroin that hasn't been cut with harmful stuff is actually less organically damaging than smoking cigarettes. It's just there's that pesky OD risk, problems with needles, and problems with what else might be in it. It's also usually less addictive than nicotine....
This fact is not an argument to take up heroin, only to put things in perspective as far as organic damage to the body.
And the over dose risk is the fault of the government for the most part. The government takes our money and gives it to the tobacco companies. Our government is insane, which is why so many people make government their God.

I was a witness to a burglary and a local Sheriff lit up a cigarette/cigar type of thing when he wanted to interview me and lecture me as it turns out on the evil of drugs. All I said was that I didn't care if the burglar was using drugs or not, he was a thief and that was what was important. The cop disagreed and thought because he had a loaded pistol I should listen to his apologetic bull shit.

Chiming in here, ejohn: "You're forgetting that gay couples don't WANT people that hate them involved in their wedding."

If that is true, why are they taking business owners to court for saying they don't want to provide services for a gay wedding? Is it simply revenge? Are they not all about forcing people to keep their beliefs to themselves and act contrary to those beliefs?

Did you ever see "Super Size Me" by Morgan Spurlock? It's available on line to watch. It was sort of unrealistic that he ate every meal there for a month, but he put a package of McDonald's fries under a bell jar and they NEVER changed in 6 months. All the other test foods rotted, but the French fries sat there unchanged.

First off, for the most part, it's *not* the couples that have taken action against the bigots that won't serve them. It's the governmental commissions charged with oversight of the laws involved.

Second, it's about equality in public accommodations. We can't start carving out exceptions to the law that allow someone offering their services to the public to discriminate based on their personally chosen beliefs.

Part of the reason those people are successful in whatever business they're pursuing is because of the taxpayer funded infrastructures that allow their business to exist. Roads so that customers can come to them or so that they can go to clients. Police and fire protection to protect them and their establishments. Court systems to equitably enforce their contracts should a dispute arise. All those things are supported by ALL taxpayers, no?

So if businesses are allowed to start discriminating against certain people they decide they don't like, then taxpayers are being forced to pay for services that support businesses that will not serve them. That's not okay.

Lastly, would you be so quick to be critical of people fighting this type of discrimination if the tables were turned?? If it was YOU that was being turned away from a business because the owners chose to not like you, despite them not knowing you, would that be okay with you??
