This week I spoke with a Chick fil A store manager here in S Ohio. She informed me that last week her restaurant achieved a new record sales figure. Keep up the great work, fruitcakes!

I agree. This is obviouly a violation of the First Amendment.
If they were preventing gay and lesbian people from eating there,. or saying they won't hire gay and lesbian people, that's one thing.
But to block a business from opening simply because you don't like where they stand on a political issue is obviousy a violation of the First Amendment and is unaccptable.
Welcome to Chicago ! WOO-HOO ! CHANGE you can believe in !

just like the boy scouts, gays want into a group not for them instead of making their own group!

And its only their opinion that is acceptable...as they scream for tolerance for differing opinions that smash down on anyone who opposes them! Chick-fil-A anyone?
hypocrites indeed!
Britney Spears can get married for less than 24 hours and that's okay for the "institution of marriage" but to men that love each other would mess that all up?

You really need to search The Bankers Manifesto, The 7M mandate, The Council for National Policy, Fort Bragg Assassination School, Operation Gladio, Operation Paperclip, The Frank Olson Legacy project and the 1953 Iran coup/ When you are finished with your homework, you might understand what is going on in America today. If you choose to remain dumbed down and ignore the past, you have no legitimit bitch about current affairs.

No United states was not built on christian beliefs, where's your proof on that, why do you continue to make statements that you cant passably back up just like your favorite parson Sarah Palin, another one that opens her mouth with out researching facts.

Britney's short marriage had the capacity for procreation (heaven hep us).

and then we have jenkins v miller here in VT...a case where the birth mother decided to no longer be gay and instead found god and rejected her prior spouse as evil...
a full blown custody controversy like the state has NEVER SEEN BEFORE!
I actually think miller/jenkins make a mockery of marriage more than hollywood...

yes this country was founded by Christians on Christian believes. It won't matter what we site to prove it you will not accept the truth so why would anyone show it to you? Believe what you want but you are severely misguided and plan old wrong.

it doesn't matter, if if the religious were a minority, minority rights are protected against the morality of the majority,
right libs?

I wonder why gays cannot apply their own rhetoric to themselves...

I wonder the same thing. They attack Christians in an effort to get people to accept their sick lifestyles. What they don't consider is people of all religions and of no religion at all dont like their perverted ways.

true, but at the same time, you guys are supposed to be compassionate...
how can you not apply your own beliefs about Jesus hanging with undesirable hookers and healing the leppers to gays? Did Jesus really act like anyone was really damned?

This debate is interesting to me partly because those claiming a right to tolerance show none, and those preaching compassion show none...

maybe if both sides practiced what they preach we would have a solution...

You have the right to practice your religion, but you can't force others to practice it, and you can't use your religion as a basis for law for all citizens.

How many times does it need to be explained to you??

Britney's marriage didn't even last long enough for the ink to dry.
