Being that Glendora, California was a hot bed of the KKK in 1947 and before it seems odd that the glendorapatch.com has chosen to run the
Jackie Robinson: Remembering A Southern California Hero story.

Even today April 15, 2013 there are elements of KKK and skinheads roaming the streets of Glendora, California.

So is your argument today going to be the Big D "you're lying" straw man again? Boring! And of course dishonest as hell. But lying is your M.O.
I donít need to point out the obvious to anyone, we all know.
Same sex marriage will continue to go forward, more and more states and all your cascading slippery slope arguments are for nothing.
I donít need to argue, we have already won
Regardless of what the supreme court decides we have won, even your personal hero has said so. The majority of Americans are now ready to accept same sex marriage, it is now only a matter of time, and pressure that is being applied by voters, and by businesses on states that do not recognize them. Not everyone can work for Chickfila

I don't care who said what about a gay judge deciding a case like this. We both know it stinks.
Here is the bottom line. Why does a legitimate cause need lies, hate and distortion to gain legitimacy?
Those seeds don't grow legitimacy honey.
Smile.
i can ask the same of your side - why does it need to lie, hate or distort anything to have any legitimacy?

if you don't care what the judge says, then that's on you. the judge is the one deciding the case - and now it's before the supreme court. they'll make the final decision. neither you nor i make those legal decisions as we're not seated judges. and by the way, the republicans put him on the bench in the first place, based on his history. for example, he's argued against "the gay games" in court. pretty laughable that you're so convinced he's biased considering that he'd argued against the gay games.

what are you going to do when both Prop 8 and DOMA fall? continue whining like you are now or just shut up and be a grown up and live your life like millions of other americans? the choice is yours my friend.

Nope, I am just pointing out the one company that does not support same sex marriage. As I have stated before I have work colleges that are in same sex marriages and raising children.

My son works for Microsoft, they are considering pulling offices and manufacturing out of states that do not support marriage equality. They cannot have different rules in different states for their married employees. And they are not the only company talking like that.

It is all just a matter of time now.

But you do need to argue. You need to justify your hypocrisy in not giving all marriages the same respect and consideration.

And that argument is not "frankie is a liar he doesn't really support marriage equality". That is a Big D straw man argument.It's so old it's laughable.

Wait a minute! Chik-fil-A is now gay friendly. Hold a grudge much?

They even have some new menu items to celebrate their solidarity with the gay community. Try the new chicken reach-around wrap! And for desert try the Fudge packin' brownie!

YUK!YUK!YUK!

Capitalism is the bottom line. You may think companies are being progressive in supporting marriage equality, but really they are just being practical.

There is much sophisticated talent in the homosexual community and they want that talent. They want to make there company as gay friendly as practical to attract talented gay employees. And that means supporting gay marriage.

The end result is good, but it's not altruistic, it's just practical. Follow the money. And this is the way it should be. Equality as a natural process.

I have no hypocrisy, I actually support Same Sex marriage.

And no one here questions that support.

You argue consistently with anyone that supports same sex marriage, and you consistently defend people who are opposed.

I donít need to argue

You have already made all my points for me, irrefutably

Of course they are being practical, I have never said otherwise.

That is why they wrote a brief to the supreme court calling the recognition of same sex marriage a business imperative.

Right. You're too stupid to make your own points so you rely on me to make them for you. You said it yourself.

You do not support marriage equality. You say you support polygamy but you do not. Everyone can see through you, you are as transparent as glass.

You are a hypocrite who stereotypes and demonizes good people as child molesters, welfare cheats and criminals.
