So when is the next stoning going to be?
“I know up on the top you are seeing great sights, but down at the bottom we, too, should have rights. "Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories"” by Dr. Seuss
FWIW I think the LGBT community and those who are expressing outrage over Chick-Fil-A's support of Christian beliefs are missing a major opportunity. Instead of getting upset over someone else's opposing beliefs why not open up a competing LGBT Friendly restaurant that specializes in gourmet hotdogs and call it HotDoggyStyle? I can almost envision their first commercial now. "At HotDoggyStyle we love weiners almost as much as you do." And just to make sure that they don't discriminate within the that particular community they could have Pink Fish Taco Thursdays (with proceeds going to support Breast Cancer) and Fried Clam Fridays. And what would they serve for dessert you ask???? Rainbow Sherbet.
"BRIAN, Close the window! You're letting all the Stank out...." "Ahh, ahh, ahh and boom goes the dynamite."
DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS(It's not nice to pick on retards.)
I wish I could find the list I recently came across of many, many, many companies that funnel money to charities, mostly Christian charities, that oppose homosexuality. It was quite a surprising list. I imagine many of you shop at these places or purchase their products. Chick-Fil-A seems to be the most vocal right now.

Putting aside the specific issue, when did this country become one where expressing your personal opinion or beliefs will get you nothing but backlash from the world. This is a free country and we should all be able to express our opinion or beliefs with all the fallout that seems to occur. Its a sad state of affairs.
The CEO of Chick-fil-A was just voicing his convictions, just like the homosexuals do.
Is it just a one way road? Is it only certain groups who have free speech?
Let's all go to Chick-Fil-A day August 1st.

Changes have been made to the language numerous times beginning with the original translations from Greek (Or other language) to Latin, to English, to the King James version (which was rewritten based on a huge conflab of church leaders), v to the modern version, to the easy read versions etc, etc,
Remember.... once you put text out into a public place like this, anyone is free to change it, save it or pass it along to someone else.
- Likewise, anything typed can be read to mean something completely different then what you really meant to say, by any number of folks in any number of different configurations. 1+1 does = 10 in binary (or base 2 instead of ten like most folks are used to working in)!
I am not saying what was done was right, however the moderators and owners can clearly do what ever they want to here as they own the control knobs. Thankfully in this case they did it in a fashion that shows what was done.
Well, I am rude. As rude as a person in a 'sodomy based marriage' can be. We're devilishly evil, and since we are going to destroy this country,
my little post shouldn't be of such surprise.
If you got to know me better, you would know how irresponsible I think people who justify THEIR beliefs with the Bible are. "I'm just following scripture" is how us men kept women from voting for so long, you know... That was so great when women didn't have any rights, so Godly and barefoot. We also effed over the Indians using God and man-made scripture as well. Isn't that EXCITING?!? Yay for the personal responsibility-eliminating powers of SCRIPTURE!!!

See, it's easy to hold beliefs when you've got someone or something else to blame them on. It's much harder to be personally responsible for your beliefs, which is why many many people blame God and Jesus for everything they can. The funny thing is that folks think that shirking of responsibility actually works. "I'm not an oppressive a-hole, God is, and I'm doing what other people tell me he told me to do! I'm not responsible for my behavior, actions, or opinions!"
Good Tony they are huge against Homosexuals? They behead them hence their way to "solve" the Gay issue

Also, LFE is seriously failing in this thread:

FYI: "Let me fix that for you" has been an internet meme for a while now and is usually meant to be humorous. Post a picture of virtually anything these days and a dozen people will "fix it for you" in sometimes hilarious ways. Rarely is it meant to be taken seriously.
And Neo "Good Tony" (is that suppose to imply I'm less than 'good'?) - very little of the gasoline the US puts in their cars comes from Arab nations any longer.
