well here's the choice, the city fathers and mothers can increase the city tax base or they can kiss the asses of the 1% of homosexual perverts in town

The company CEO is anti-gay marriage, he doesn't hate gay people. The restaurants are not anti-gay. They hire gays to work for them. It seems no one can write a factual story anymore. It seems attempting to deliver a lame point of view trumps facts.

The Good News is that the number of gays with AIDS is increasing.

Dan Cathy, the president and CEO of Chick-fil-A, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he regrets that the Georgia-based company ever became a synonymous with anti-gay attitudes after he spoke out against Supreme Court’s rulings that recognized same-sex marriage.

“Every leader goes through different phases of maturity, growth and development and it helps by [recognizing] the mistakes that you make.” He added,“And you learn from those mistakes. If not, you’re just a fool. I’m thankful that I lived through it and I learned a lot from it.”

And we consumers can decide which businesses we want to support.

Um, really, why is this even a topic of conversation. Fast food restaurants have not exactly offered our country anything more than poor health and low wage jobs.

It creates a cycle that is difficult to break.

Nobody will be worse off, if anything, they will be better off with fewer of these gastronomic disaster areas in their community.

I go to restaurants that are clean and serve good food. I don't care what the CEO thinks.

Because the LGBT community is making it a topic and they are not concerned, in the least about whether or not, if it is a healthy food choice.

I ate lunch at Chick-Fil-A today. It was great! I was able to enjoy a nice meal in peace without being subjected to any homosexual perverts kissing each other and making me sick.

To be clear, the thing to be annoyed at here is not gayness itself, but Gayness Inc. and the Gayness Social Club.

i read the staff report on the disputed left turn lane. the planning wizards wanted a u-turn option instead. staff declared that gem to be even more dangerous statistically than the left turn lane. staff "respectfully" packed the pc recommendation and supports approval of the appeal.
i wonder if bob schussel will speak "as a private citizen" to council, lol.
i wonder if he will quit the pc because council repeatedly overrules them?
may i take your order?

The good news is that Fatso will eat their breaded chicken and clog his arteries even sooner. Soon there will be bets as to when he will die of a stroke or heart attack.

Sorry, but if you want to enforce laws that directly harm gay folks, their spouses, and their kids, and send a message to every gay youth in the country that they are unworthy of the ability to have a legally recognized spouse, then you hate gay people.

There is no other way to spin that. The fact that you still want them to purchase your product simply make you greedy and irrational.

The only thing that would give your post even a hint of credence would be if he fired all of the gays that work for the company. That would harm "gay folks, their spouses, and their kids."
His opinion that marriage should be between one man and one woman harms no one and is shared by millions.

Half of all Americans believe that gay men and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll in which a large majority also said businesses should not be able to deny serving gays for religious reasons.

Fifty percent say the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal protection gives gays the right to marry, while 41 percent say it does not.

Beyond the constitutional questions, a record-high 59 percent say they support same-sex marriage, while 34 percent are opposed, the widest margin tracked in Post-ABC polling.

Super, but that's not what this is about.

This is about the intolerant left trying to use the power of governmental action to shut down and economically harm those with beliefs the left objects to.......
