I just think it's a dumb move for the owner of any business to take a public stand on such a diviisive issue. Pro Gay marrige, anti gay marriage, pro abortion, anti abortion, pro gun rights, anti gun rights..... It doesn't matter. You take a public stand on either side of these issues and you're basically pissing off 50% of your potential customers.

However, if he's willing to lose business over this, that's his right.

Just as it's the right of gays to not hold their wedding reception at the Chicago Chic-Fil-A.

That is, if gay marriages were even legal in Chicago. Which they are not.

Hyperbole much?

A group of New York University (NYU) students are circulating a petition which accuses Chick-fil-A owners of “human rights violations” over their financial support for non-profit pro-family influence groups.

Right, but since that isn't Chick-Fil-A's website...

THought this was interesting...

Quote:

Police: Cochranton homicide victim buried alive

Brandy M. Stevens, 20, was still alive but probably beyond feeling pain when a woman she had loved helped to bury her.

Jade N. Olmstead, 18, and her new lover, Ashley M. Barber, told police that they invited Stevens to their Cochranton-area home on May 17 and then savagely beat and choked her and buried her in a grave they had waiting, state police Trooper Eric Mallory testified during a preliminary hearing for the two women Wednesday.

...

Olmstead greeted Stevens and lured her into the woods near the home that she shared with Barber and Barber's parents in Wayne Township, to see a crude fort that she and Ashley Barber were building. Barber was hiding there. At the fort, the two women began punching and kicking Stevens and stuffed a "Saw" cap into her mouth to stop her pleading for her life and screaming.

"They said they were freaking out from her screams," Mallory said.

Stevens was knocked to the ground by the two women. Barber put a rope around her neck and strangled her while Olmstead alternately hit her in the head with a shovel and helped to choke her, Mallory said.

...

The two women rolled Stevens into a shallow grave that they had prepared for her at the fort. When they saw that she was still breathing, they threw a large rock onto her face and poured water into her mouth and nose.

"She said that her worst fear was being buried alive," Mallory said of Barber. "She was trying to kill her."

The results of an autopsy by Erie County forensic pathologist Eric Vey showed that Stevens suffocated on dirt, police Trooper Phillip Shaffer testified.

...

Barber and Olmstead originally told police that Stevens had come to visit, then left her car there and walked up the road with her belongings to meet a friend, Mallory said. Barber said that she'd gotten the bruise on her head in a fall down the cellar stairs.
Almost didn't catch this next part...


Quote:

She later told police that her father had killed Stevens because Stevens "looked like a boy" and her father wasn't very tolerant of homosexuality, Mallory said. The women admitted killing Stevens after police told them that they'd found her grave.
Niiiiiiice... "It wasn't me! It was my homophobic hater father that did it! Honest! Well, ok, yeah, you got me... It was me..."






(Although, the victim was reported missing in "beaver", which was mildly amusing)

The reality is by stating his beliefs he has shown discrimination.
Unless he is actively refusing to employ or serve homosexuals, no discrimination whatsoever has occurred. Frankly, it saddens me that we've reached a point in our PC evolution that that word is even bandied about in this issue.

Good business, bad business, whatever. But it is not discrimination.

I think it's safe to assume she ate out.

How come Emanuel welcomed Louis Farrakhan, whose own views on same-sex marriage don't seem to offend the mayor’s Chicago values ? How come Rahm doesn't deny permits for Farrakhan’s restaurant?

Two reasons:


Farrakhan is the 'right' religion (well, not the "wrong" religion - i.e. Christianity) and he's Black. Bottom line.

Now I've heard the mayor of Boston, who also said Chick-fil-A wasn't welcome, supported an Islamic mosque being built there. They advocate death to homosexuals.
