Chick-fil-A sandwiches become a political symbol

Jul 27, 2012 Full story: Bellingham Herald 28

Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain known for putting faith ahead of profits by closing on Sundays, is standing firm in its opposition to gay marriage after touching off a furor earlier this month.

Hardly anything to do with politics and a lot to do with pure, unadulterated Old Testament bigotry.. Since they cannot invoke the Constitution they fall back on the most lurid biblical nonsense, disregarding, of course, what would perhaps touch them too close for comfort..

It doesn't take a lot of checking to find out what the bible really says about families. Hint: It's quite a bit different than the "traditional" or "biblically based" families being touted by religious conservatives. Shucks, even reading the bible as a layman will give the lie to these "traditional family" concepts.

Although it's easy to find this information, believers don't want to go there. They have been taught from birth what their religion says is the "right" kind of family, despite their holy religious texts saying quite the contrary, and they are not willing to look into the matter at all. They are like petulant children, covering their ears and eyes, shouting no-no-no.

These same people also tend to believe that what they believe is going to determine their fate after they die - an eternity of heavenly bliss, or an eternity of unbearable suffering. With such an important result riding on the choices they make whilst alive, one would think they would want to make sure that their beliefs are the right ones by doing a little checking. But no, they resist doing that.

It has not been a good week for the company, and they thoroughly deserve it.

Upchuck Fil A not only institutionalizes bigotry, its employees report that they are forced to take part in a religious cult despite being illegal to demand that of employees. Sexual harassment is also endemic and institutional (re: San Diego).

The Muppets told Upchuck to FOD for their bigotry, and pulled their toys from a product promotion. In retaliation, Upchuck slandered the Muppets claiming the toys "posed a hazard to children and were pulled". Now the Muppet company may sue for defamation.

Then Upchuck faked a fakebook account, creating a sock puppet to spew propaganda, and got caught doing it.

And now, their leading propagandist Don Perry keels over and dies after eating Upchuck Fil A's shitty food (or maybe it was a heart attack). I don't believe in karma or "god", but if I did, I'd say he either got what was coming to him or "god" killed him.

You, on the other hand, do not need to hear anything about yourself.. You KNOW, I'm certain, what your limits are.. It's what scientists call "unlimited boundaries of nothingness.."

I was just wondering? Why don't some of you gays say what you want?
do you want the chicken place to close up? Do you want the ceo to be hanged? Don't you think he has the right to his beliefs?

It's not gays, it's liberals. not all of these hate filled vile posts are from gays. But they are from liberals to be certain.
The thing is with all of them, you can think anything you want as long as it agrees with what they think. if you wander from the liberal montage then you're full of hate. Oh you might not hate or even dislike anybody, but they say you are solely because you don't follow the thought process that they try to drum into you in the Public schools. It's all political correctness.
Look at the Olympic athletes that {perish the thought} Post a comment that someone finds offensive, and a lifetime of hard-working dreams are flushed.
Now you have a CEO that says I don't believe in same-sex marriage, and oh my now let's go to war with Chick-fil-A. Never mind the fact that chick fillet are franchises owned by hard-working Americans that have nothing to do with the CEO but only trying to make a dollar for their family. The hatemongers don't care they just want to hate. If wasn't this it would be something else, it always is.

If the religitards believe "heaven" is so much better than Earth, they should live up to their words and go there via a .44 calibre aspirin as soon as possible. They should leave the Earth to the "sinners" and go to "heaven" if they really believe the shit they are spewing.

"Suicide is a sin" is a cop out for cowards. The christards are lying because they're afraid they're wrong about "god", or what they want is to control other people's lives.

Shit fil a is a decent fast food dump.
But I doubt I will go out of my way for a $12.00 lunch anymore.
Im unimpressed by them shoving their opinions into their crappy little sandwiches.

I can't believe that you honestly feel justified in calling yourself a "normal person." Sick, possibly. Deluded, definitely. Ignorant, for sure. Normal, not so much.

You can laugh and say all you like about
people who follow God's saying homosexuality
is an abomination. He hates it !
When You stand before him at the Judgement
and He says,"depart from me, I never knew you",
and you're cast into a lake of fire, FOREVER,
you'll see your error , but it will be too late.
You don't realize what you're in for.
Can you imagine torment never ending?
Total darkness, heat hotter than the sun and
a spirit body that can feel, but never burn up,
without end.
The horror, knowing it will NEVER end.
Go ahead....be smug...know it all and laugh.
Once there, you can't back up.
IT NEVER ENDS !

This poster, who calls itself "on the right side," pretty much proves every point that the rest of us are making, doesn't he-she-it?

My dear "on the right side," I hope you enjoy your eternity of sadism, looking down at all us sinners being tortured for ever and ever, gleefully rubbing your hands, saying "i told you so" over and over. I think even that might get tiresome at some point...
