    Chick Fil-A ...."anti-gay so go away??"

    So the president of this fast food chain comment "I think we are inviting God's judgment when we shake our fist at him and say, 'we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.'"

    Now some mayors across the country are expressing their disapproval at those comments and their desire to keep Chick Fil-A out of their cities. City Council Member Christine Quinn, who is openly gay, spoke against these comments and wants NYU to sever all ties with Chick Fil-A...

    What do u think? Are the comments outrageous and warrant censoring??? Do you care? Isn't this "God doesn't agree" arguement
    used elsewhere, ie abortion debate etc.

    Where should we draw the line between Free Speech and unacceptable rhetoric...?

    ..that corporation and the owners have a right to thier views (that is free speech) and freedom of religion

    ppl also have a right to protest..(boycott) right to a public demonstration if they dont like it.

    Why is it OK for the politicians to say "no gay marraige" and its ok..but an owner of a corporation cannot - it get the tag of unaccpetable rhetoric?

    People most certainly do. Outside of inciteful, patenly offensive words...one may state an opinion. The guy isn't saying "these people should be burned at the stake" or anything.

    As to boycotting, how to do u feel about a politician asking a private institution to sever its contractual relationship with Chick Fil-A. This isn't just say, "hey guys, don't eat there anymore."

    no thats ridiculous...honestly this pc nonsense is vexing the hell outta me, everyone is basically just walking around putting on a fake facade to avoid being put on blast, meanwhile it does nothing to stop discrimination or hate because everyone is still thinking the same shit they always thought.

    why are ppl surprised?

    the chain doesn't even open on sundays obv. they gonna have a certain stance on things.
    dey en say fiya fuh gays just that they can't get behind gay marriage what's the big deal.
    and i can't believe mayors from various states speaking out on something like this.
    they really want to boycott and bankrupt a company with a perfectly good product ova dis?

    It's really scary considering this woman might be a mayoral candidate soon. God forbid your opinions don't run parallel to hers. I doubt NYU would give in to her pleas.

    I had a professor suggest that being part of an ethnic minority should make that group sympathetic to gays and homosexuals - as if it's the same thing....

    One of my issues with that arguement is that African Americans have been for the most part, socially conservative. So it doesn't follow that they would simply sympatheze with another minority group that stands opposite their belief system just because that group is a minority. These two groups do not have the same history. There were no "gay bathrooms" and "straight bathrooms.". I don't recall gays for sale...or any being uprooted and and out on a transatlantic voyage anywhere...
