Skip to comments.In online chat, Brown is brought into Chick-fil-A fray

Senator Scott Brown, who has earned kind words from Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino despite their differing political parties, treaded carefully Friday when asked during a Boston.com chat about the mayors spat with Chick-fil-A over its opposition to gay marriage.
I disagree with what the CEO from Chick-fil-A said. I was glad he spoke further and said that his company does not discriminate, Brown wrote from his South Boston campaign headquarters.
Noting that Massachusetts has strong antidiscrimination laws that could prevent problems should the company decide to set up shop in Boston, Brown added, If they move forward with the location proposal, I trust the mayor and other officials will ensure that those laws are honored.

i wonder if these tards understand that their attacks on Catholics and Christians in general are all discriminatory
oh, what am i thinking... of course they do. they just don’t care
personally, i prefer to eat food where the owners don’t play with their own feces ... or the feces of their ‘partners’
Pandering progressives are so irritating... even if they are equipped with an “R” instead of “D”.
by all means, senator, make sure that all the disgusting little queers are protected as people like you want America to drown in a sewer of perversion.
I wonder what the CEO said that Brown disagrees with, specifically.
bROWN IS A rrrrrriiiiiiinnnnnnnOOOOOOOO!!!!
Since Scott Brown is the best we can expect from MA. I propose that we expel MA from the Union!
Nothing like watching a Republican office holder wet himself because he might offend the homosexual community and their political and MSM handmaidens.
How about, “I don’t see anything wrong with a citizen holding opinions of their own and voicing them in public, as long as those opinions don’t reveal any plan to harm others. And the CEO of Chick-Fil-A did not express any plans to do that. People need to get a grip. Which is worse, not planning to harm others, or the Left taking unmistakable actions to harm businesses and there-by their employees and their local communities? We need jobs people. If Chick-Fil-A wants to expand and employ people, by God they can count on my support.”
Scott Brown needs to walk a thin line in communist Mass. So I’ll give him a pass. You won’t get anyone more conservative than him in that state.
The only problem I see with the concept is that the city of Chicago would sit right in the middle, but that could be addresed by creating an island city much like the former West Berlin in political status even though it would continue to be run on an East Berlin ideology.
So, if you believe in the scriptures, then you’re discriminatory.
That he is, but he's about as close to Conservative as we're going to get out of Massachusetts.
Brown is a moron. He’s better than Martha Coakley and the Squaw. Not by much though.

Bull$hit, Scott Brown is 1000 time better than either of those *$@#7s!
I saw on another thread, somebody was showing the irony, that the liberals are all in favor of Muslim ventures, such as the Ground Zero Mosque, when Muslims ideology condemns homosexuality.
So, a business which is run by a devout Christian family, a family which doesn’t believe in homosexual marriage, is condemned, and is to be run out of town. But a Muslim mosque, or other Muslim businesses, run by those who would execute homosexuals, are welcome in New York City. Go figure.
I think all the owner of Chick Fil A said is that he supports the traditional family and marriage and he didn’t say a word about gays. Is that not true?
If it is true then anyone who supports traditional marriage is a gay hater? You’re either with us or against us?
I tolerate gays as long as they aren’t the Folsom Street Fair types - isn’t that enough? Can’t they tolerate those who don’t particularly like their lifestyles?
Yeah , that’s a real “Thomas More” display of courage Scotty displayed there.
The answer to your last question is a resounding, “NO”: It has reached the point where if you do not embrace and celebrate TOTAL equality in marriage and all things for gays, you are an outdated bigot. Absurd, but that is where they stand now politically.
Brown, Obama, Democrats, Liberal Low Lifes, Left-Wing, Dirt bags, all one in the same, buffoons, dummies, idiots, usually high on funny stuff or booze!!! Not one of their Ilk is going to hurt the business of Chic-Fil-A. On Facebook, which is not a right wing or Christian admirer, almost six million Americans like what CFA is doing. And....that number climbs with each passing day!!! End of story!!! Braindead Obamabots fail again!!!
And you are correct: Dan Cathy stated only that he was a supporter of traditional marriage, and that all customers in his restaurants would be treated with equal dignity, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation.
And THAT has been spun into rabid homophobia and anti-gay remarks.
Very much like romney.
He disagrees with what Cathy said. What Cathy said was he supports traditional marriage, and gives money to causes that build up traditional marriage.
Scott Brown opposes traditional marraige? And this is a senator who was strongly supported by Freepers, who sent him money as well.
Yeah, well what Brown is basically saying is that he does not believe marriage should be defined as one man/one woman only. He wants the definition opened up to include one man/one man and one woman/one woman. How else could he disagree with Cathy’s benign statements?
I think the following scripture may be fitting for Seator Brown’s stand.
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15-16
You just know we are going to have to run those people through re-edumakation camps some day ~ horrid situation.
Just what basis does Scott Brown have to support the marraige between two people of the same sex? Is it just because it is the popular thing to say like, ‘I love Pet Rocks.’
A little global warming and that'd be a great place for some of those 30 foot South Asian crocs.
“Brown is 1000 times better”
Really? How so? If he’ll turn on an innocent conservative to keep his Kennedy creds, what good is he? Better an enemy you can predict than a friend you can’t.
I propose you go screw yourself.
Does that make you a supporter of same-self marriage?
Yes, this whole acquiescence reeks of that lukewarmness which the scripture rightly judges.
Yes, gay marriage is a flavor of the month type fad which somehow has become enshrined as a sacred human rights issue. Planned strategically and stealthily by the advocates, of course.
That is the same tactic that the lunatic left now uses ... Ban IT.
You got me with the same self marriage ...LOL!!!
If he were more conservative, the MA GOP would recruit a liberal to run against him in the primary. Sadly, it looks as if the national GOP is heading in the same direction!
Thought you guys might want to read this:
A convicted homosexual pedophile from Maine is trying to sue MassResistance from publishing the facts of his crimes. He has gone to the courts and to the web hosts with threats. He was found guilty of sexual abuse on a minor but only got months in prison instead of the years that he deserved. Read how the court reduced all of his crimes which ammounted to 12 years time but gave him only a few months in the end. Such is our justice system.
The shear nerve of this guy is incredible, he has no sense of shame or remorse but instead is defiant and self-righteous. The justice system isn’t helping since it is minimizing his crimes which include attacking a boy and his father with a knife.
Since this perv is working extra hard to get his vile story off the internet it might be a good thing to post this as far and wide as you can.
Thanks... I’ll read it tonight.
Ah yes, the enabler punishment statute.
It's sweeter than honey, isn't it? : )
Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said this week that his privately owned company is “guilty as charged” in support of what he called the biblical definition of the family unit.
The Boston Globe:
Dan Cathy, president of the Atlanta-based company, told the Baptist Press earlier this month that Chick-fil-A is guilty as charged for being a supporter of organizations rallying against same-sex marriage.
Pure BS from the Globe.
Yes, they put the spin on it that will put the gays in the victim light and make the religious person look oppressive.
That he is, but he's about as close to Conservative as we're going to get out of Massachusetts.
Brown isn't anywhere close to being conservative. He is as close to being "conservative" as the moon is (sometimes) closer than the Earth to the Sun.
The only victory in that election was the symbolic replacing of a "D" with an "R" - that's it.
It appears you and I are in agreement on this, just saying it differently.
Kiss my ass.
How hard would it have been to simply say “everyone is entitled to an opinion”?
He obviously felt the need to pander.
play nice, kids.... ;)
You’re all ass because you have a lot in common with Tom Menino and Rahm Emanuel.
