Original title: 'I don't know how you live with yourself': CFO fired after verbally abusing young Chick-fil-A employee as gay rights protestors stage 'Same Sex Kiss Day' at restaurants
----------------------------
A Chick-fil-A protestor went to extreme lengths to show his disdain for the chain's anti-gay marriage stance - and ended up losing his job over it.

Adam Smith, the former CFO of an Arizona-based medical device manufacturer, decided to take matters into his own hands by targeting an employee at a drive-thru window, videoing it and uploading it on to YouTube.

In the video, which has already been viewed more then 150,000 times, Smith - who claims he is straight - explains what he is about to do as he waits in line for his free water.

His firing was reported on the same day as the counter-protest against Chick-fil-A's Appreciation Day as thousands of gay couples plan on flocking to restaurants to kiss.

That young lady deserves a raise. She conducted herself more like a mature adult than the creep who felt like he had some kind of God given right to unload on her.

Corporations, for fear of discrimination suits, shamelessly bend over backwards to appease those like Adam Smith with zero tolerance policies, meaningless sensitivity training, silly diversity statements, hiring useleless EEO coordinators, etc. It’s refreshing to see one of these pompus, self righteous hypocrites get what they deserve. Karma’s a bi-icth

I know what he's getting for his next birthday:

He "can't stand 'hate'" but HE's the hater.

He can't see the log in his own eye but the splinter is anothers.

“Hate”, “Homophobe”, “Racist”

all are words the left uses so they don’t actually have to debate the merits of the issue at hand.

What a jerk he is!

I can’t stand people who unload on waitresses, bank tellers, mailmen, or any other service personnel.

God bless all the folks in these helping professions who go out of their way to make their customers’ day better.

Leave an extra tip for the kind and wonderful people like this young lady whom you interact with today!

I just gave my hairdresser a $10 tip!!!

I’m confused about the “homophobe” word. Doesn’t the “phobe” part mean “fear”? I’m not afraid of the homo weird-o freaks. I’m just against their lifestyle and their militant efforts. There has to be a better word.

Smith is a mean spirited liberal, and a bully, who deserved to be fired.

Don’t try to apply reason to it, because it won’t make sense.

Just understand that when they use those words, they’re just saying “shut up, he explained”.

I’m not afraid of them, either. I pity them. They are in a stage of arrested development that never passed adolescence.

Maybe one of our wordsmiths here can come up with a more applicable word for those of us who do not hate or fear homosexuals, but just wish they would quit whining and manipulating like 12 year olds.

LOL, the Daily Mail floods this article with huge pictures of kissing gays, while covering the Chick-fil-A day with couple of distant photos.

And in their "let's do outright lying evil" category, they post this piece of garbage as a subhead: "Detroit Lions linebacker said he won't boycott even if they supported slavery because it 'tastes too good.' (Pssst, DM - it was the Democrats who supported slavery).

Hey Daily Mail - I hear you've got a fair number of Muslims in Great Britain these days. Why don't you ask one of their imams about gay marriage.

Hello?

Daily Mail?

Hello?

I have a solution for all those people who hate orthodox Christians: we should each be required to wear a yellow cross on our clothing, and should be sent to special camps where we can be isolated from the general population.

That should make ‘em happy!
