“I am sure this is the first of many such incidents. He has closed all of his "town halls" to everyone except paying supporters. He refuses to answer questions from his constituents and will do the same to the public.”

“then Bidden will kiII him in the debates,
Ryan won't even know what the real issues are.
That's what you get for living in a self made bubble”
“Less than 60 days left to register voters in NC. If you don't have a local organizing for America office, you can grab a stack of voter registration forms at your county board of elections and hand them out at a near-by strip mall or shopping center on a Saturday morning, or just hand them out to friends.”
“Please help to get the vote out. Especially if you are in rural NC. We need to turn this state around.”

“Unfortunately, I am. And yes, we need a good ground game here - to get the Democrats out in big numbers in November!! You are right - it needs to be turned around, before things get out of hand. Fanned & faved.”
“NC preachers preach against PP because God is supposed to have your "plan". It is a culture of fear and misinformation that is being ramped up for an election year. They hope to stir the base to get enough christian women to vote or at least confuse their girlfriends. I tried talking to two women at the lake this weekend. They were voting for Romney because their husbands told them that no one is happy with Obama. They couldn't tell me why. They just knew that everyone was mad at Obama. When I asked for clarification. They just said, "Well, I don't watch the news." That is our problem.”
“Those were the 17 CFA was found guilty. SPLC defined AFC as a hate group because it also funds death squads in Africa. Christian terrorists are still criminals. Even if they hide behind fried chicken.”

“Did a search. Couldn't find one case where they were convicted of discrimination. They settled out of court on most of them (not admitting they did or didn't). It's cheaper at times to settle a law suit than take it to trial.
What death squad did AFC fund? Do you think the Nation of Islam is a hate group?”
“The Southern poverty Law Center which monitors hate groups in the USA distinguished the American Family council a hate group. The American Family Council has received 5 million dollars in CFA profits from your waffle fries. The AFC has done all of those things you say Mr Cathy and CFA have not directly done. CFA simply writes the checks. Distinction noted! Enjoy your chicken, chicken.”
“The Southern Poverty Law Center designated them as a hate group, not I. Mr. Cathy can feel and say whatever he wants. He can give money to whomever he wants. America has the right to know about his involvement with the hate group. It is our right to boycott CFA as much as it is yours to boycott JC Penny, Oreo, Disney or whomever you choose. You simply cannot however draw the conclusion that anyone is leftist and whiners because they support equal rights and choose to exercise their own free speech calling a bigot a bigot.”

“Here's my conclusion.....gay rights groups have the right to patronize whatever store they want to...boycott whoever they want to, based on perceived wrongs or real wrongs. But a government entity does not have the right to start dictating to businesses where they can build or not build based on a business's religious beliefs. That is why, despite the absurdity of it, I was for a mosque being built close to ground zero. We must always be consistent about that.
We have way too many thin skins in this country.....one cannot hardly sneeze without offending someone and that has to stop.”
“He funds hate groups that say those things. Do your homework. Facts are not tangents.”

“Here are the facts. Giving money to a group that supports one man/one woman marriage definition (your so called hate group) DOES NOT mean that they want to make homosexuality illegal. NOT ONCE did he say that. NOT ONCE has Chick Fil A been proven in court that they have fired someone for being homosexual. NOT ONCE has Chick Fil A been proven in court that they refused service to someone because they were homosexual.
So you want someone who doesn't believe that same sex marriage is O.K. not to say anything or give money to a group that supports one man/one woman definition of marriage just because YOU say it is wrong? How open minded and tolerant of you.”
“Its not the free speech. Its the millions of $$$ CFA gives to fund hate groups. Until last week, Cathy had denied this. Now he has begun to admit it publicly. some of us have been boycotting CFA for years.”
“By making them miserable at work and funding hate groups that work to deny the employee basic civil rights by making homosexuality illegal. That's how.”

“So only the LGBT community gets to decide what is a hate group or not. How opened minded and tolerant of you.”

“In the eyes of the law, there is no such thing. It does not exist in federal statutes; the term is entirely a concoction of the SPLC. Moreover, the SPLC has no concrete definition; it slides based on its current political objective. Example, if you don't believe in gay marriage then you are in a "hate" group. One "Hate" group is the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona. Just because they don't think in homosexual marriage then they are a hate group. Any "Hate" group on the SPLC list should be looked at to see if they are or not.
By the way, out of the 17 cases, how many found the CFA was guilty?”

“Not once did the CEO say that homosexuality say that it should be illegal. Not once did he say that they don't hire homosexuals. Not once did he say that they don't serve homosexuals. You are just going off on a tanget that doesn't exist. Crying that the sky is falling. Next you are going to say that Chick Fil A and it's owners do things that aren't true.”
