apparently, disagreeing with gay marriage means you hate gay ppl


Supporting traditional marrage is what started all this.
They are pushing this to become a hate crime in the name of PC.

You are absolutely right...my wife and I have decided to make Chick-Fil-A a regular part of our dining out.

Years ago I used to go over there just to see what those people think

They have absolutely no language standards...much less moral standards

A total cesspool

I was in a CFA in Orange County, the line was out the door and around the building... we didnt have time to wait. So I walked to the front of the counter, got the manager and handed her a 20 and said take this... she started laughing saying No No , I pointed to her and said TAKE IT! She did, and it was apparent I was not the only one that had done it that day.

Good post. Bears repeating.

The CFA I went to yesterday handed out coupons for a free sandwich with your purchase. They want to insure all the new customers come back!

I went to DU and read each post.

If I were a tactical or strategic theoretician for the Left I would be gravely concerned at the devolvement of my foot soldiers from thinking activists who engage and regroup and reengage, to fearful hopers who rely on the power of clique-identity reassurance slogans to push away recognition of dangerous turns in the tide of battle.

There is no difference between dismissing your enemy as just a “cowardly running dog of the capitalist oppressor-pig” and a “homophobic KKK Christian hater bigot”. Both are chosen blindnesses when estimating the adversary.

I am not Christian. I am not a bigot. I am not a homophobe. I am not experiencing or expressing the emotion of hatred.

I am very angry at the destruction of my nation’s spine, viability, culture and freedom. My ideological adversaries are displaying internal dissonance and refusal to acknowledge and engage in the shift and rebalance of forces, terrain and motivation that is taking place.

It is positive for us, and should be exploited. Louder accusations of hater/racist/whatever-phobe should be quietly encouraged on the part of the Left. It betrays their state of impotence and fear, which is unattractive to the undecided. It is akin to a hitchhiker screaming “You’re ugly!” and flipping a middle finger to a driver who slows, but doesn’t stop to donate a ride.

It is not a non-positive indicator. Let us look to provoke and exploit additional broadcasted vulnerabilities as opportunities arise.

Fauxcahontas. “You didn’t build that.” Ban soft drinks and urge cops to abandon post. Drive hard with statesman-level directives on the status of Jerusalem and the truth about culture and poverty. Encourage debate on issues ridiculous to the public and set examples of leadership that publicly address the huge.existential concerns of the masses.

This is straight out of Mao. A little unusual that one of their primary and effective playbooks has been forgotten but where there is a gap, drive a spear.

I think Chick-Fil-A will enjoy an ongoing substantial increase in their business.

I believe you're right. I couldn't get close to the local CFA yesterday. However, in the future, they are my fast food place. I generally don't eat much fast food, maybe only once or twice a month. But now, when I do, it'll be CFA.

Wendy’s has already come out as pro-homosexual and anti-Christian and anti-American.

Press Relase by ‘Wendy’ herself:

“Wendy’s Spokeswoman ‘Wendy’ Stands With Gay Marriage Supporters

Dublin, Ohio, July 25 2012: Wendy’s corporation found Dave Thomas believed in treating all people, customers, employees, and vendors with the utmost respect. As the woman you see on the sign and in the logo of Wendy’s, it is my belief that Dave would, as I do, support the rights of same-sex couples to marry.

Being ginger, I have faced discrimination my entire life. I’ve been called “firecrotch” and “carrot top”, have endured countless barbs from people such as “you’d better get out of the sun, ginger”, and “they don’t make an SPF high enough for you.” Growing up different from your peers is hard, and when you’re already a cartoon likeness of a human being, to know that you’re a cartoon minority is itself an added struggle.

On behalf of the entire Wendy’s organization, I would like to express our solidarity with all minorities, and our firm commitment to stand beside you as you fight for equality. I would condemn other fast food chains, whether it be their company President or their chicken-hating cows, who would not offer you the same respect.

At Wendy’s, we believe that all loving couples should be afforded the same rights — the right to marry and all the legal protections that accompany the institution. We live in a nation that trumpets freedom and individual rights. It’s time to ensure that we live up to the values we espouse. Besides, I’ve got my eye on that chick from Brave. Rawr!

In addition to her role as corporate mascot, Wendy has been a tireless supporter of minority rights and equality since she was first drawn in 1969.

Who knows what the late Mr. Dave Thomas would have think but he probably would side with Chik Fil A since the founder of Wendy’s is a Christian.

Buycotts work. If you don’t live near a C-F-A and want to be part of the wave you can buy a C-F-A T-shirt or Ball cap!

Regrettably, many of the Wendy’s locations here in Jax have gone completely downhill. Several, in fact, have closed down completely. Expectations of a clean restaurant, friendly service, your order being filled correctly, and feeling safe while you eat are now apparently racist. Dave Thomas must be spinning in his grave.

A large number of the local Burger Kings are suffering from the same problems.

That is a shame. Although when in Jax, I LOVE to go to The Loop!!!! Best Hamburgers ever!!! I wish they would be everywhere. (Sorry off topic). I hope that Wendy’s especially gets their acts together...perhaps find better franchizers or managers.

I never even bothered with chick file a before. I always got the elcheepo sandwich to hold me over till I can’t get a proper meal.

But that chicken sandwich is to die for. You put one on the tops of your head, and your tongue will beat your brains out to get to it. I thick that was a jeff foxworthy joke.

You know, there’s nothing wrong with writing a short note to the manager explaining your point of view.

“I tried to be a new customer for your franchise the other night. xx/xx/12 I was moved to do so, because I wanted to support your CEO against attack in the media.”

“As a new customer, I didn’t know your hours. I drove up shortly after you had closed having driven x miles to get there, only to be waved at and laughed at by your staff.”

“I would like to support your facility, and I will, but I thought you should know what your evening staff was up to.”

“Take care...”

The manager may not have a clue they were doing this. He’ll kick their butts. You may even get some free food out of it, even though that’s not your goal.

MaxMax, take care. Thanks for the mention.
