    That Depends on....

    ....your choices. If you're gay: They are homophobic! If you are a believer: They are making a stand against sin and a chosen lifestyle that reflects a sinful decision to go against God's order of one man and one woman, multiplying and populating the earth.

    They are not, they are pro-biblical marriage.

    However the popular media in our country as deemed it worthy to report anyone who questions the validity of homosexuality as anti-homosexuality. This is ridiculous. Why aren't pro-gay marriage groups cast as anti-traditional marriage?

    I like Chick-fil-a and eat there often. If the homosexual lobby wants to really irritate the wrong people, they'll attack Baptist Chicken Ltd. A line needs to be drawn at some point. It is time to begin saying enough.

    Its interesting that Ellen Degeneres is having a fit that Christians want to boycott J C Penny.

    I wonder if she will be just as upset that some colleges are kicking out Chick-Fil-A from their campus.

    I would hope that with all the cities that are vowing to pull Chick-fil-a's permits are ready for huge lawsuits. Because, correct me if I'm wrong, but denying a business for their view of traditional marriage based on their religious belief, would classify as discriminating against one for religious beliefs and should be a pretty open and closed case for the company against these city officials.

    In today's world, I wouldn't be too sure.

    Obama's justice department will not prosecute civil rights violations against anyone or anything not considered a minority or holding a minority position.

    Since Christians are considered a majority, they are not provided the protection of any law that would prevent discrimination against them.

    Cities like this don't have to go after Chick-fil-a in that manner. I imagine they will bombard them with zoning requirements, city inspections and various other forms of regulatory attack. They will make business so much of a hassle it will be difficult for this franchise to make money.

    BTW, I absolutely love Chick-fil-a, first they allow their employees a chance to go to church and they have a wonderful sandwich.

    Christians get called homophobes for being pro marriage and for boycotting J C Penney. What do heterophobes do, they don't boycott Chick-fil-A, but instead try to close them down. Now who is being over-the-top?:jesus:

    I will be eating Chick-fil-A all next week to show my support, my family will definitely eat there on Wednesday, I ask you all do the same.

    It's just that, with Rahm coming out and saying that Chick-fil-a's values are not "Chicago Values", and therefore stands behind those that vow to prevent them from obtaining permits to operate, that to me is the same as saying "your Christian values, your religious values, do not match our non-Christian values, therefore you are not welcome in our town". That is religious discrimination and should be taken to court and fought over. Really makes me upset. They are the first to say they are expressing their 1st amendment rights so that they can be heard, but when anyone they disagree with exercises their 1st amendment rights, then they violently attack and try to squash the opposition.

    Chicago is filled with strip clubs, porn shops, bars and liquor stores...

    Apparently those better represent "Chicago Values". :rolleyes:

    Now if city leaders came out and said "if your company supports same-sex marriage, we don't want you here", they'd be having a confounded fit in the media.
