Thank you very much. I appreciate the recognition.
A more descriptive headline for
a story on the eatery would be
"Rio Burrito craps up business downtown".
More descriptive, yes, but sadly the description bears no resemblance whatsoever to the reality of the business or the story about it.

If often wonder what sort of place, exactly would be palatable to the vocal and incessant haters of downtown Asheville, and why they don't go there. Then I realize it's a matter of two things. For one, they have no other joy in their life aside from their hate or someone or something, and if they didn't have something or someone to hate, they'd lose the will to live. Secondly, there's only so much room inside Fred Phelps's walled compound out there in Topeka, and they couldn't possibly all fit in there.

“peace”

I have pity for you, a creature who would be miserable without the presence of Sodomites, Lesbos and Left coasters. You probably also crave the company of the Damm Yankees, Floridiots and Pagans who have infiltrated the area. You are the kind who is ruining Asheville, you are so brainwashed by Political Correctness.
I have more pity for you, a creature that is not happy unless every last person around you thinks, looks, and acts exactly the same. I can't imagine how miserable you must be to have not adjusted to a world where everyone is different.
I don't give a damn about political correctness, by the way. I simply don't see how it matters the least bit what two other adults are doing in their private bedroom. Nor do I see how that affects their ability to contribute to society. Nor, for that matter, do I see how it affects one if such people were to gather anywhere downtown. Your glee that a downtown restaurant that catered to a diverse crowd is closing is repulsive, because you're taking joy in another person's grief simply to stoke your own prejudice and bigotry.
It seems to me that a person who could stoop so low as to do that has a lot more potential to ruin a place than I, who tolerates and accepts human diversity, do.
Now, you'll say that I'm a hypocrite because I say I'm tolerant, yet I'm calling you on your troglodyte mannerisms. I'll concede that I'm tolerant only to a certain point, and that point is well short of tolerating your stupidity, bigotry, or your cruel joy.

I couldn't care less what a Sodomite/Lesbo lover says about me. Those poor creatures are the dregs of society and one less place infested by them is reason to rejoice.

Actually I consider derogatory comments such as yours an honor as decent people clearly can see how they are spouted because of your prejudice against morality.
You're a scream, you know that? What in God's name makes you think I'm not moral or decent? Gimme a break. I'm not the one giggling about the death of a man's wife here, nor am I the one hating God only knows how many people I've never even met simply because of what they may or may not do in their own bedrooms. You are, and therefore you have no right whatsoever to lecture me on morality. You won't have that right until you "straighten up" and become a little more decent yourself.

Implying I was giggling about the death of a man's wife is a out and out falsehood.

No moral nor decent person would advocate the “right” of Sodomites/Lesbos to practice their perversion. What gives you the right to lecture me on decency
The hell it's a falsehood. The man is closing his restaurant because his wife died and he can't run two locations anymore, and yet you're just as happy as you can be about it.

There are moral and decent, churchgoing, God-fearing, child-raising, hardworking, ethical, kind and loving gays and lesbians, and there are perverts, just as there are moral and decent straights and perverts. The fact that your own bigotry blinds you to that simple fact gives me the right to lecture you on morality.

And what kind of perversions are those moral and decent perverts into? Baby Raping? Bestiality? Necrophilia?

Were they also hanging out at the Burrito dump?
You were the one insinuating that they were hanging out at the "burrito dump" that you are so happy to see close, which is to say that you're taking immense joy in someone else's grief. Which is to say that you can spout about your decency all day but you've proven yourself a hypocrite.

As to what sexual peccadillos gays and lesbians participate in, I would think that them being moral and decent in the first place would rather preclude pedophilia (big word, I know, so I can see why you didn't use it), necrophilia, or bestiality. Of course with your ability to be morally repulsive yet claim moral superiority at the same time, perhaps you know tips and tricks that I wouldn't.

Again please tell what kind of perversions those moral and decent perverts you refer to are into?

BTW

Pedophiliac is one who wants to have sex with children. That is a term one would use to try to justify the perversion.

A baby raper goes ahead and does it. This is the term to use when he is thrown into the bull pen at prison where he belongs.
Again, if they're two committed, consenting, loving adults I fail to see how it's a perversion. Although, maybe there are some men out there who are deeply ashamed of their boyfriend's love of disco music or something. That would be pretty perverse. It would also be perverse for someone to be able to eat guacamole straight from the container, and I can see some woman just hiding her face from the spectacle of it when her girlfriend gets that urge.

Regarding the nomenclature of a child molester, "pedophile" and "pedophilia" aren't used to justify, merely classify. And child molesters do not belong in the bull pen at prison. That's far too good for them. Child molesters belong in slowly filling septic tanks where it will take them a good, long while to drown.

So listening disco music and eating guacamole from the container can be perversions but homosexuality and lesbianism are not???????


Precisely. In fact, guacamole is so disgusting that I think the Constitution should be amended to specifically prohibit it. And disco music is just wrong no matter which way you slice it, but it's not so bad that it can't be someone's secret shame. Just so long as they don't try to force it on the rest of us, we'll be okay.

It's sad to think that people like Straighten think they're so right but in the end, it's those like him who are going to rot in hell.

At least we are in agreement on those two items.
Of course, the problem remains that there is nothing the least bit perverse about two committed, loving adults in a relationship with one another. That's what you keep failing to see.

I suggest the guy you are replying to should not just use a bag over his head, but maybe a "PLASTIC" one, letting Darwinism intercede and do us all a service to rid us bigots & creeps.
