I suppose the journalist/reporter from the Chicago Phoenix used his own discretion (for the safety of the Plaintiff?). If you go to the article link, there will be another link saying, “Read Document”: this will take you to a total of 9 pages on this filing by TCRA.

think CFA is the respondent/defendant here. Undisclosed Complainant would be the plaintiff.

“Look at the depth of feeling this issue generates. And then look at all the people who tell you that social conservatism doesn’t matter and is an election liability.”

ABSOLUTELY. Fiscal issues, issues of foreign policy or employment or taxes are important - BUT it is the SOCIAL issues which make us human. They stir our passions as nothing else does. I think both the GOP and the Dems have vastly, disastrously UNDER-estimated the importance of an issue like this. Aug 1 2012 was proof of this.

Oh, yes, I misspoke. Yes, I meant to say CFA is the defendant (whose address and phone # appear on p 1 of the document.) Those represented by TCRA are the plaintiffs. My bad. Sorry.

Homosexuals are the fascists' brown shirts, just as in NAZI Germany until Hitler purged them. Even Hitler feared the militant homosexuals. Do not underestimate these people, they are very dangerous.

I will go one further. It's the social issues which make us conservative. Without a social underpinning, we do not always make differentiation between right and wrong. Our conservatism becomes one of convenience.

We know not to spend more than we take in because it's fiscally wrong. We know not to kill the unborn because murder is wrong. We know gay 'marriage' isn't palatable because homosexuality is wrong.

Too many politicians don't differentiate, but rather triangulate. They are a big reason why this country is in the mess it's in now.

The Civil Rights Agenda, a pervert support group, has announced and caused to be published, to hundreds of millions of people, that LGBT people are unacceptable and objectionable,” said Jacob Meister, Governing Board President of TCRA and the attorney who filed the complaint. “They have made it clear the lives of LGBT individuals are unacceptable to them and that same-gender families are unwelcome at Chick-fil-A.”

Chic-Fil-A has neither said nor "caused to be published" any such thing.

If mental deficients could file court charges based on THEIR inferences and delusions, EVERYTHING COULD BE A 'CIVIL RIGHTS' VIOLATION.

I can't get to a Chic-Fil-A restaurant easily, but I am willing to donate the price of one meal a week and the cost of gas it would take to get to the nearest one (40 miles) to aid their legal defense.

Take that, you pervert GLBT freakozoids!

Point well taken; and eloquently stated. Much appreciated.

A fiscal conservative becomes a RINO. The moral compass is not there, which is why so many of them have gone “soft”.

This is the thing. OK for corporations to donate to blatantly liberal and postmodern organizations.

NOT acceptable for same to do so to traditional or Christian groups. Becomes an issue of “hate” and “violation of civil and human rights statutes.”

Except the liberals cannot see this.

THEY are morality, and nothing else is morality.

Hell no, they;re cowards, this is easy to see even for a blind person, this is about attacking Christianity and the 1st amendment.

All of this because some people, a few of them like to have sex in a very unnatural way and then theyb think they should have special laws just for them and if one stands up and agress with the majority they then start their NAZI tactics, they’re the homostapo and nothing more

Wait... I’m confused.

Didn’t Obama, until his recent epiphany, express the same position - that he believed marriage was between one man and one woman?

Why didn’t they protest or sue him?
Or... did they know he was lying then?

nail on head and everyone on here should read your post.

We said we’ll go along wiht getting rid of the sodomy laws, we put up with getting rid of the mental disease factor we then said OK civil unions, then it was don’t ask, but no it became mariage, and openly serving which goes against their original argument of their rivate business.

Still there are people on here of all places which still state well it;s only marriage but they ignore the teaching it in schools to little kids, NAMBLA, child molestation, etc

Enough is enough, no more openly serving, no more teaching it in schools go bacl to them needing help because they have conducted themselves in a way which show mental problems and baby tantrums.

They can go back to how they like their sex in their unnatural unhealthy way but they keep it in their bedroom, no more dog parks, public bathrooms etc, no more parades and open sex on the street, no more exhibition actions and how thye dress, we have laws for that which need to be enforced.

Oh and I will go to jail before I eevr back down over this now, they have gone too far and to think I couldn’t have cared about them a few years ago.

You are stumbling right into their trap, and empowering the perverts.

The perverts' hissy fit cannot be based on CFA opposing anything, because they haven't. The owner simply stated what he supports; the restaurants have no opinion. A right every individual still has, in spite of the pink mafia.

Exactly. We are all feeling this way.

Plain and simple: We gave them an inch in good faith and they took a mile in bad faith. They pushed and pushed and poked a gentle lion until that lion began to snarl and growl and bite and roar.

I think before long we can sing this song about the LGBTQ Rainbow Agenda:

They’ve come undone
They didn’t know what they were headed for
And when they found what they were headed for
It was too late, too late

Only reason these people exist and continue to contaminate society is because of societal laws. These people, all, are good and truly f()|<3d when their beloved governments start collapsing at first the state level with the fed following close suit. The laws of nature will ALWAYS keep these freaks at a bare minimum because they cannot re-produce. They have mental problems and nothing more and its not my fault or anyone around me. Sorry they are screwed up, truly am; but I am not ready to accept this behavior as "normal".

“It’s just about time for another Christian Crusade, IMHO.”

While your sentiment is good, and I admire your spirit, do you have a stage where troops can muster? Who is your commander? Which company do I report to?

A crusade takes lots of time, planning and troops. Until you conservatives can muster a plan, an objective and field a force, you ain’t going no where.

A good place to start is electing a constitutional sheriff in your county. Do that and work from there.

Another issue that is overlooked.

Marriage existed before any governments existed. Marriage was a religious practice for hundreds if not thousands of years, before governments got involved and made it a “civil” contract. The big issue was that government did not make a moniker distinction between religious marriage and civil unions, and society thus calls both, “marriage”.

That is why the issue is so polarizing. Traditionalists, see marriage from a religious viewpoint, while the gay community tries to portray it as a civil/legal issue.

From a religious point of view, trying to “force” approval of same sex marriage is the same as “forcing” Jews and Muslims to accept pork as being Kosher or Halal.

Were it not for his chicken reaction when challenged by the Massachusetts State Supreme Court, we wouldn't be here right now. His reaction should have been: Well, guess we're out of the marriage business, since the state supreme court has determined that the institution of marriage is inherently discriminatory. Or a simple 'No, we're not changing the law. Put your ruling into effect and see how long it lasts...'

Instead, he caved.

So, no, this really doesn't entice me to vote for the one man who is most responsible for the issue. The one who COULD have taken a stance, and he didn't. One ounce of backbone, and all of this would have gone away. And every day, I watch the utter destruction caused by his cowardliness.

Romney has done more to help the gay crusade than Obama ever will.
