full title...'Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed': Chick-fil-A boss causes outrage AGAIN after tweeting disappointment over historic gay marriage ruling

Chick fil-A boss Dan Cathy said the 'founding fathers would be ashamed' Last year he caused an outcry after saying that he supported the 'biblical definition of the family unit' Thousands of gay couples then protested stores across the country Defense of Marriage Act was struck down meaning that married same-sex couples have to receive the same benefits as heterosexual married couples The ruling has substantial effects when it comes to issues like survivors benefits and tax filings for married same-sex couples Same-sex marriage is only legal in 12 states and the District of Columbia California now added to that list as Prop 8 also dismissed

“Outrage”?

Those supposedly “outraged” can GSTH (which they probably will anyway)

So he cant have an opinion, but a CEO that thinks it’s ok isn’t “causing” outrage?

Our Founding Fathers would also be ashamed that merely stating one’s opinion causes “outrage” and retribution.

By now, he knows this type of comment is a surefire money-maker. I’m not saying he’s not sincere or anything, but it’s a win-win ...

He can have an opinion - just not THAT one.

That’s what I was going to post. They would definitely be outraged, but not over homosexual partnerships.

They wouldn’t have known. It was not their business.

They would be outraged over the overreaching, intrusive, tax-crazed thought police our government has become.

He's just telling the truth. The perversion is being celebrated and pushed into every facet of this country and is being done deliberately in order to destroy us. The criminal enterprise known as the democrat party is filled with anti-american, anti-christian communist that are rejoicing in celebrating the destruction of the USA. They hope to somehow end up on top or "in the loop" so that they can benefit from the scraps the thugs in charge leave.

F'em. They'll be the first ones put up against the wall and I will sip a cold one and smile when this happens.

Adding ANY modifiers in front of “marriage” means we’ve lost the argument.

“Last year he caused an outcry after saying that he supported the ‘biblical definition of the family unit’”

The Jewish Bible or the Christian Bible?

The rabbis say up to 18 wives is kosher.

The priests and pastor say only one. If you throw in divorce you can have another. Another divorce? Have another! You are only limited by the size of your wallet.

I'm not outraged. I'm well pleased that someone still has the cajones to stand up to the gay lobby in this country.

You know I am torn about that. I took my flag down a couple of weeks ago. One day I want to put it back up another I am so upset with our government I don't want to. My father fought in WWII for that flag. Alot of fine brave young men died for that flag. I don't want to disrespect their sacrifice. I don't know what to do. Maybe someone could start a thread on this subject.

Yeah, a lot of “gays” protested. And, then, many more heterosexual people went out of their way to buy a bag of his company’s food. Remember the lines going out of the drive-thru windows and around the block — people supporting his pov, and his company?

California now added to that list as Prop 8 also dismissed

Actually (not that it matters) the Court reinstated the District Court decision, which is binding only on the parties.

Legally, it means those two guys can get "married", and that's all it means.

However, the Governor and the Attorney general are going to defy the California Constitution, as amended by the People, and apparently no one has standing to challenge their contemptuous and illegal actions.

I tried that. I was cutting grass in the front and a guy stopped and told me I was disrespecting the flag and the country. What kind of communist was I. I tried to explain to him that it isn't disrespect that if he knew anything about flag etiquette he would know that it is a sign of distress. I asked if he liked the way the country was being led. He said no. I said neither am I that is why I am flying the flag upside down.

So one guy thinks the sky is cerulean, the other guy thinks it's cyan. Therefore we can't tell if it's blue or red.

One guy says these two animals are the same species, and the other guy says they are two different species, therefore we can't really tell the difference between a moose and a rhododendron.

Silly.
