The right to have an opinion and speak up about it does not protect you from being vilified for it.

When the Westboro Baptist Church and the Ku Klux Klan demonstrate they have people who stand up to them and tell them that they are in the wrong.

This is no different.

He can have his opinions. He can speak his mind. That does not mean that I can't stand up and say that he is a bigot. My right to tell him exactly what I think of him is equally protected.

At least while this is still America.

See, we can't have gay believers being slandered because the governments behind "them" now. It's too bad that this woman/writer and many other people like her will mess with their children’s heads and call it a good thing. Years from now as they become adults they will have problems beyond belief and the parents of today will say, “we don’t know why this is happening”? Let’s have a theoretical test, and with plenty of food and medicine and farm equipment etc., let’s put all those born female on one continent, maybe like Iceland to the tip of Africa and let’s put all those born male on another, like Canada to the tip of So.America with no communication or way of getting to the "other's" continent and see in 50 to 100 years how many people are left. I'll bet you probably won't find too many. I believe that it is because it is “NOT” the natural and right way for people to attempt to procreate or be life partners, as most of us know to be true, whether you think you love your “significant other” partner or not.

Some can say that the sky is green and the grass is pink. It doesn't make it right or true. "Everyone" doesn't have to believe in gravity, but step off an 20 story building and see how well that belief works out for ya.It's a natural thing on our world, but you don't have to believe it's true.

I would tell him some people stood there because they were making a stand to protect their right to believe what they want. People have a right to their opinions based on their religion, and unfortunately some people don't want chicken sandwiches to be able to be sold just because of the religious views of the owner.

I think that every restaurant ought to have to post the beliefs of it's owners/corporation so that all people can decide on where to eat based on the beliefs of the owners and not the quality or value of their food. I am sure that my selections will be reduced quite a bit as I am sure that the political/social/religious beliefs will not coincide with mine.

That's pretty much going to be REPUBLICAN/DEMOCRAT!!!

The forums are dividing as is the culture.

The liberals want abortion, homosexuality and huge government that
takes away from some to give to whom THEY want to give it to (wrong!) and
the Republicans want to overturn the death mill known as Roe v Wade,
keep marriage what it's been since the dawn of time and for government
to keep its hands out of our pockets.

(That's not to say that many, many in government don't need to be impeached
or thrown out on both sides of the aisles. They do.)

But on all issues of quality of life the sides are now in place.

Lastly,.................SOMEBODY is right and someone is wrong here.

Can you explain to me why government spending under Obama is lower than Bush please? Can you explain to my why teen pregnancy spiked under Bush? Can you explain to me how someone can want something that exists in nature? (Homosexuality isn't a choice.)

The right's current stance on economics mirrors Greece. How's that working out for them, anyway? Austerity seems great on paper. Low taxes, awesome! Only, you then get nothing. No Medicare. No Social Security. No Law Enforcement. No Education. Nothing. No Infrastructure. No Science. No Defense. Nothing.

So who precisely is wrong again?

apparently my sarcasm was lost on some people. I don't really care what the social beliefs of the people who own or work in the establishment are just as I don't really care what a nutball hollywood actor thinks about society before I go see a movie.

Chick-Fil-A's stance on gay marriage is protected by Freedom of Speech, something everyone in America has. While I agree with the "fast food will make you sick" fact (deep fried chicken is loaded with fat), you can't say Chick-Fil-A discriminates against homosexuals. They simply don't agree with their lifestyle. Period. It's like someone saying you discriminate against heterosexuals because you support gay marriage. How dumb is that?

"Because every morning when your dad or I drop you off at school, we ask you how you'll treat your friends and teachers. You tell us, "With kindness and respect." You don't know yet why it matters to us. Just know that it does. It is the most important lesson we'll teach you."

But there are exceptions, and Mr. Cathy and the people that work for him are different. You shouldn't treat them with kindness and respect. You should hate them. Get it now?

Chick a Filla is less then a deilcious meal. That's why I dod nl;t eat thier. I belive that is ownbers are jugemeantal and casue a lot of pain and sufferuigfnbecasue some if it patorns do not live liie they want to doictate. I do not want to hear a long boring passages in the Bible about it either. I am a Chrstian to boot. Ypou see when Choirst came he took the sin of the world away knowing no one canl live by the Jewish Law. He abolished it, What we have id grace and I beleive that Jesus Bood covers all sin for all time. It a belkeif in the Chirst faith that he is whoi he says he is, and that his goift of grace is what will get you into heaven. I will love all of mankind, and I will not judge anyone lest I be judged by that measure. So Chick-a filla will never see one of my dollars I rasie chickens as pets. I woulodnlt eat my Dog either! So that about sums it up!

It is a belief in me that if you want to try to show who YOU are you need to have an IQ higher than the amount of a Chick-Fil-A dinner cost!

What we have id grace and I beleive that Jesus Bood covers all

What you have is grapes, (probably in the form of wine), and I believe that Jesus is booing every word you wrote.

Why don't you tell your kids someday they can marry and have sex with anyone at any age and not worry about what other people think. If they should make a mistake and get pregnant, no big deal just get an abortion and you don't even have to tell mommy about it. I bet you can't wait until we get rid all resemblance of morality. Think about, why deprive your kids of sex with gay partners when they are 12 years old. Come on whats with this waiting until they are considered adults by some archaic moral code. Lets get rid of all the rules and have complete anarchy while we're at it!

Well, a guy in Bali was forced to marry a cow. But, really, kids are having sex at too young an age, with their school teachers, their coach. They are raped by their fathers and step fathers. Some even get pregant. Some have abortions. Some have sex with each other. I don't think ALL of that is a "gay thing"

This country was founded on personal freedom. I really believe we should all have the same rights....all of us, gay and otherwise. It feels right to me. I don't think it's necessary to hate each other if you disagree. I don't like processed chicken but I wouldn't go there even if I did. I think it's fine if you do. It seems so simple to me. If I neeed to beat you up with words because we think differently, I'm not sure it's about chicken or a sexual preference.

The PROBLEM is that the CEO of this company is giving money from this company to anti-gay organizations who continue to bully and discriminate against the LGBTQ population. This isn't about whether the man is a Christian, it's about the fact that he's part of a large group of people who want to deny rights to other human beings. Human beings who happen to be my family, friends, and allies. I don't understand why basic human rights are so unequal. We're still fighting with the same concept of civil rights as fifty years ago, but now it's with a different group of people. THAT'S the problem. THAT'S why this man's worldview is harmful. Not the fact that he closes his restaraunts on Sundays or has a personal belief that differs from others. Don't forget that the people being bullied and legislated are human beings like you. Their preferences are just different.

What a twisted and obscure lie this article highlights. Which the reason why we become so frustrated and cynical about you liberals, especially the media. You twist truth without any integrity. You use cheap emotion to cover your immorality, then pass it to your child and wonder why the world is as messed up as you are! Tell your child that Mr Cathy who owns Chick Fil A is entitled to think marriage is between a man and a woman...and by the way... explain to your child thats how they were conceived directly or indirectly. Then apologise to your child for lying to them without integrity!

I would tell him I don't agree with Mr Cathy and I don't want him to use the profits from what I might spend there to support groups that discriminate. I would explain that Mr Cathy has the right to believe what he believes and to contribute to whatever groups he wants, but I do not want him to use any of my hard-earned money. You say the aurthor is immoral? Is it because he doesn't believe as you do?

Marriage between gays will eventually leat to gays becoming extinct. No children will be conceived by gays as they will no longer marry a straight to hide their sexuality and no genes for gays will be passed along.

So what's up with all the fundamentalist right "family is man and woman" people who have had homosexual children? I'm confused . . . I mean, those people should not be able to have homosexual children, right? They believe in God. They married "correctly" and they had children as they were supposed to . . . so how precisely did the "gay genes" slip in?

Or are you saying that a lot of right wing fundamentalists are closet homosexuals?

Because right now I am really confused about the point you're trying to argue.

Why does it seem that this article is blaming CFA for something? They have done nothing wrong. They have simply stated what their position is on gay marriage. If you don't agree, you don't agree, but this is their legal right, at least for now. It is called freedom of speech. I do hope you teach your daughter about that too!

Well she seems to have few Christian values, which she is entitled to. No one can make anyone have morals or the same morals as them ( and thank goodness for that ) . We believe something is wrong, she believes something is right. We know one day we will be proven right, she believes that she is right today and isn't worried about tomorrow. She tells her son that CFA is bad, but does she explain that even though she doesn't believe in what the owner of the company believes in there are many people that do.? If she only delivers her side, then she is showing prejudice against Christians.

You need to read the Bible, It says man with man is wrong. If you choose to overlook that then , OK- your choice. My choice is to stay with what the Bible says, not what man says. This is the problem with liberals, they want to rewrite, change, ignore or destroy what doesn't agree with their views. She said she would tell her son what Dan Cathy is doing is wrong. Dan is doing what he feels is right. Since you believe that I am self righteous, perhaps I am. But I do what I do because I know the Bible is right. But you are correct on this , One day God will judge all of us.
