I was going to edit this.. but "buscuits" seems fitting in this instance.
I know so many people who went there today, some waited in line for like an hour, then they tweeted or put it on facebook through their Iphone. Chances they know Apple has a gay CEO? Why the hell would you decide to make a religious statement by buying chicken. I'll still eat there when it's convenient but I don't make consumerism decisions based on the political views of the company. If so, I wouldn't wear Nike.
Uh, well, kinda. The government needs to actually DO something for there to be a Constitutional challenge in court. Yeah, it usually is a law...or the enforcement of a law. A "threat" doesn't count without any further action. Especially these threats, which are clearly hollow and done to score political points. An appeals court can't do a lot about a threat. I enjoin you to not make the threat you already made!! I'm sure the 4th Circuit will save some docket time for that one. If the mayors actually did prevent stores from opening up because of this, then you might have an argument.
Just for the record, both Chick fil A CEO and the mayors are being assholes...which they both have the right to do. But the only real losers in this are the people who thought they were standing up for the principles of Jefferson and Madison when they waited in line for an hour for a microwaved chicken sandwich.
run with it boys

Here it is. You're welcome, bro!
Pleased to meet you; hope you guess my name.

I don't wear Nike. I go with Adidas. They have better shoes for people with wide feet.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
There are hundreds of thousands of people who enjoyed their chicken yesterday. Oddly enough, I don't think I've had it, other than about 5 years ago, once. Sadly, there are a few here who will never go there, and deny themselves an excellent product (except for those fries.)
If you think that 'reaction' occurs only when there is a legal 'action' first, then I point you to the millions of threatened lawsuits that lead to informal settlements, and threatened prosecutions that result in plea agreements every year.
But I agree completely with your second paragraph (until the mayors imply legal action)!

What a doofus. He makes this poor girl feel clearly uncomfortable to make his video, pretty much invalidating any kind of point. And he's an educator? Fail.
Love their thick sliced potatos that are cut into a criss-cross pattern, deep fried, and then seasoned. Holding one up to the light and looking through it produces a kaleidoscope effect.
I can just picture this thread being a bunch of people sitting around a big table in the 60s and it being about race. IMO, in another 50 years we (homosexuals, heterosexuals, bisexuals, other[?]) can look back on this thread the same way we do about race today, and ask, "damn, did people really think that way? Did hundreds of thousands of people go to Chick-fil-a to support someone who opposed equal rights for all people? Hm, that's weird, let's go hoverboard."
Just to add, and I apologize for getting too far off strict Chick-fil-a talk, no one could ever hope for everyone to agree on the same thing, there are just too many different bases for belief, and that will undoubtedly grow as the world continues to evolve. Personally, to me this is about right and wrong, but I know to many others that is not even near the surface for them, and that's fine. But both sides with the combative talk and insulting will never get anywhere.
Speaking of giving to hate groups and using money to screw people, what do you think of George Soras?
everyone should seriously sit back take a deep breath and think about this for a minute
its stupifying hilarious and depressing all at the same time....it never ceases to amaze how ignorant people can be
...and not patronize his business. Apparently his religious committment is stronger than is his greed!
ignorant to your opinion on the topic and what is right or wrong in your mind/beliefs. I am in total agreement with you and the others here who think sexual orientation having any bearing on your rights is wrong, but when you spew off calling people ignorant, etc. what kind of reaction to you think you are going to illicit?
The "Well you're stupid" defense will get you no where.

No matter what decision you make in any situation someone will always disagree or challenge YOUR decision...follow your gut
To all the anti-chick fil a people, what are your thoughts on Tim Tebow? He's appeared in ads for Focus on the Family in 2010 and there have been Tebow inspired ads played during the Broncos playoff games.
Focus on the Family is as pro family (and therefore as anti-gay) as the Family Research Council which Cathy has donated too.
people who believe others shouldnt be allowed the same civil rights as they have are 1000% ignorant
what would you call it?
are men who hate women ignorant?
are people against interracial marriage ignorant?
i would argue yes
You have correctly realized that your argument works exactly in the obverse.. The side one is on depends on the effects of traditional, religious or other values. There have been far more intolerant expressions criticizing Chik-Fil-A then from the other side on this thread. One could draw some conclusions about whose position is bolstered more by vitriol and anger, and hence moved by emotion in place of logical and persausive argument.

In deed ignorance among our People is an issue...
I think he's a terrible NFL QB.
Relax, I already said I agree, but you can't make someone change their belief by name calling, that's my only point. I grew up in an extremely conservative household but over the past 5-6 years my viewpoints on these issues have shifted dramatically, primarily because I have actually started thinking for myself, which is one thing both sides of the fence could benefit a lot from. But I can tell you from any standing I held, when someone flung insults around it just made their argument come off as weak, no matter how much merit it may have truly had (or not).
Disagree, because my personal "intolerance" of Chik-Fil-A only affects them from the view of 1 customer on the bottom line (i.e. non-existant, a single customer doesn't mean anything to a multi-million dollar company).
Chick-Fil-A's financial backing to what I will call "suspect" political organizations that back an intolerant, non-inclusive, and IMO un-American agenda (i.e. unequal rights within our society) is far more impactful and far-reaching, and therefore much more intolerant.
