Try To Save Our 1st Amendment Rights, I'm Going For A Sandwich

Try To Save Our 1st Amendment Rights, I'm Going For A Sandwich

ATLANTA – Supporters of Chick-fil-A are planning to eat at restaurants in the chicken chain as the company continues to be criticized for an executive's comments about gay marriage.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Baptist minister, declared Wednesday national "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day."

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press last month that the Atlanta-based company was "guilty as charged" for backing "the biblical definition of a family." That unleashed a torrent of criticism from gay rights groups and others, who have called for boycotts and efforts to block the chain from opening new stores.

Opponents of the company's stance are planning "Kiss Mor Chiks" for Friday, when they are encouraging people of the same sex to show up at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country and kiss each other

fascists.

Chick-Fil-A

Only reason I'm not going to be joining in on this is because the nearest one is an hour away and Chick-fil-A is WAY too expensive.

It may be expensive, but it is the best damn chicken sandwich anywhere, and worth the trip.

their 1st amendment rights are no more authentic than that of the founder of the restaurant, Fascist pigs.
Homosexuals seem to believe that sucking dicks gives them special privileges, bastards.

Passed a chickfila today at lunch. Cars were backed up 1/4 of a mile in the right hand lane waiting to turn in to the drive through. Good for them. It has always amazed me how the same people who boast about their right to do this and right to do that, are always the same people who get upset when somebody uses their right of free speech to voice their opinion, just because it doesn't agree with their opinion. What kind of system is this if people can't say, "I don't agree with that". They are trying to shove this down Americas throat.

Follow up on CF..

Ol Dan the CEO of the joint had a heart attack after all the hate, and of course this led to the "support your local" day .. We got out and went to ours.. PACKED.. Nothing but geezers and a long line ..G says ok, to many people for me.. lets just go home.. Least we tried.. the big thing was the turn out ..Great.. and the fact that they don't get it.. NO State has "voted" this into law, it's only been put on the books by Pol's.. I support "legal" rights for all.. but some things are sacred.. which brings up a cool thing. The Black Pastors that were snubed by O.. sure you guys have all seen this.. thier not buying into it.. and the head of the group says "i marched all over the south for "right's".. i didn't walk a step for gays"..

In all honesty, and with out being a "hater"..The "biblical" issue here is pretty clear.. Sometimes you quit when ahead.. why not just legal rights for partners, and let the issue go, as opposed to having mandated books in school dealing with "Tommy had two dads"..

they accepted openly homosexual men(?) and women(?) into the service? Do they perform duties that normal people could not perform as well?

Marriage provides a safe and secure family unit to raise children ensuring the future generations of humans and their society.
What is it about marriage of 2 homosexuals that is a benefit to the human race or even to their family?
It is not about providing for a stronger military and it's not about a strong family unit.
It is about tearing down our traditions, our society, our families and our religious beliefs.
The goal is to be as destructive as they can be to everything that has gotten civilized man this far.
"Our" politicians and "news reporters" have buried that which is so obvious.

AMEN, DAISY..........

My brand of paranoia tells me that the greater same-sex marriage incursion, is a goal of the movement [ someone named it Islammunism] to work on the destruction of the USA from within, while others work on it from the outside.
I am sure you cannot guess who I think the [covert] conspiratorial leader is here in the USA.

They are just pushing their agenda. Up is down and black is white. In the past, guns were common and gays were in the closet. Now it is the other way around with the gun owners having to hide and gays out in the open. Is this bad or good, time will tell. But, you have to admire how they pulled this off. They put the gay agenda in front of everyone and made it seem normal. They did this long enough, that people for the most part don't see gay as bad or abnormal.

So, what can gun owners learn from this? Public perception shapes public policy. If the public views gun owners as crazy, then they will not respect our rights. If they see gun ownership as common and normal, then we can enjoy our rights. The what is easy, its the how that is so hard.

Debating the issue

I like to debate people that are for same-gender marriage, because it's so easy. Mainly because the supporters of this cause are only vested emotionally. In my opinion, this is a redundancy to the "cause" itself. Because only persons engaged based on their feeling would have any care towards it.

I like to start with pointing out that the end goal is as crucial as a cricket fart and about as discernible. Their is no real boon to be gained and no right or benefit is being withheld. I know that the Alinsky acolytes have portrayed it as such, but that is to gain votes from yet another demographic group that is easily swayed. They (the acolytes) don't honestly care about this "cause".

This usually leads to the looney left response No. 1 of attempting to marginalize me and calling me out as a bigot, homophobic etc. Again, I like this because I just won. My own personal feeling about it is apathy. If they passed a law today, I wouldn't care and it wouldn't affect me in the slightest. The only real concern I would have would be that it could allow religious institutions to marry same-gender couples against their will. But that's not a real concern as this would be in violation of the 1st amendment.

Only very few make it past this point and try to argue, still, that their are rights and benefits being withheld. Like the employment benefits of married couples through their employer. I point out that this is not a government thing and most employers now have these benefits not for married couples, but for "life partners". Again nothing requiring an act of congress. Some will bring up the married federal tax benefit. I point out that this very slight and its intent was to encourage procreating. Which homosexuals, by definition, cannot do.

Then I point out that if there is any real issue here is that the government recognized marriage in any way at all. It should never have been done, because marriage has historically been a religious institution. And this borders on government involvement in religion. Nothing unconstitutional about it, but against American ideals. I note that if anything should be done, it is that government should stop recognizing marriage of any kind. If they choose anything, there should be some civil recognition of a union, but where then do you draw the lines?

Some will try to argue the validity that marriage is a religion based and that some religions allowed multiple marriages and same gender marriages.

I then rebut with the fact that this is MY point. When the U.S. chose to recognize marriage, they could have chosen from many definitions of it amongst the various religions. Same-gender only occurred in the most obscure and lesser known cults. Within the Abrahamic religious, there are varying definitions. The definitions chosen were Christian. Because our country was founded by Christians. And that is where I ask them where their definitions lie. How vested are they in actual secular equality? Where is the line drawn? Should we allow polygamy? How about 1st cousins? Siblings? What about those wanting to marry children? Or animals? Who are you to decide their "right" to marry who are what they want? Myself, I want self marriage. No one loves me as much as I. I have a right to marry me. :)

I'm not saying I convert any of them. They are, by nature, radicals and will never see any other point of view. But at least I can hold up a mirror and bring that to their conscious if only for a brief moment.

SJMB and coppertop

You both made excellent points. Liberal program is to just flood the media with false perceptions. Gays are always portrayed as harmless fun loving talented good guys on TV. I had a business in Houston years ago that was located adjacent to Montrose which is Houstons premier gay district, so I had to deal with a fair amount of gays. With few exceptions they are rude, self centered and narcisistic, acting more like Roger the alien on American Dad than how they are shown on most TV shows. Kids are taught in school that John has two dads, or billy has two moms is perfectly normal, but please don;t give any lessons from the Bible or risk losing your teaching job. When I was in the military nobody was openly gay, seemed to work allright with don't ask don't tell. As SJMB said wht further benifit to gays get from marraige as opposed to civil union except to justify their own behavior to themselves.

Chic fil a

By the way I thought it was poetic justice that the guy who pulled up to a Chic fIL A drive through ordered a free ice water and then proceeded to ream out the sweet young girl working there that she was working for an anti gay hate group and should be ashamed etc. got his ass fired from his CFO job. Believe that a marraige is between a man and a woman ( it's what the bible says} and you're a homophobic bigoted hater, but berate an innocent young girl who has no say in company policy and thats perfectly fine because you know better than he rest of us. Maybe the liberals are about to learn a lesson that conservatives are not going to turn the other cheek anymore for your PC correctness. I am starting to see more backbone from conservatives on many issues.

No.. matter of fact they didn't cover the "kiss in" on local tv.. least we managed to avoid it..

Now you've got me on a tirade Lew.. thats the whole thing isn't it.. even if we have a tolerant view, and i do to the point of "legal" rights etc.. the act of kissing is a stomach turner for anyone straight.. i guess they don't get that.. ok..better stuff to talk about.. how are you and Stella, and whats up with Casey and Mac..

another 40 or so years and I'll prolly cash in and won't have to be bothered by it anymore.
Stella was down with severe arthritis pain again. She finally called for a Dr's appt, got the shots and that afternoon was able to get out of her chair by herself! That should last at least a month.

Great news with Mack & Casey and their brother Brandon. Their mutha and Daddy split the sheets (again). He was able to rent one of the vacant houses here on the ridge. I'm friends with the owner, otherwise renting one of them was out of the question.
Brandon likes to ride his bike up to Grandma & Grampa's house for a visit, love that kid!
Anyway, I get to see them a lot more often.

Hows the unpack and put away going?

Couldn't let that comment from our brother SJB to go unnoticed.. I listen to a lot of late night radio, and of course this has been quite the topic, in both cases (the Ecoast cake maker that refused a gay couple) the public.. US .. is standing up to be counted, aint it grand..

I've got to tell you guys, back in the seventies i was part of this whole liberal mind set.. I can't say i knew any gays (least that were "out") but in all honesty not having a belief structure to fall back on ie "faith" i bought hook line and sinker the teaching of the left, were all masters of our own future right..all thats lovings good right.. Greg was NOT the sharpest knife in the drawer..

I think what bothers me most is the marginalizing of anyone who opposes these views.. HOW in the world did we let this happen.. Cali HAS to have the Johnnie has two dads books.. How can that be.. Politicians don't care. they just tow the party line based on the current poles.. But we should.. Every time i hear the lies, and heres a big one.. the GLTGwhatever groups claim that one in 8 or 9 Americans is GLTGwhatever.. NOPE.. Just not the case.. Still only 1-2 % according to latest FOX pole..

As a card carying and i pray caring Christian i don't want to have anything that resembles hate.. and i don't .. if we go back to the 50-60's i don't think those who were gay chose the life style.. I'm not sure on this, but i do have compasion for them and i really don''t think they "chose" that lifestyle.. but i know this much, if you make it absolutly ok.. take away any "stigma" then were going to see a much higher percentage.. We all know as Men that theres no such thing as "bi".. if you can ... pick your clever choice for the act here.. once you can do that your gay.. periood.. that Duck walks quacks and etc like a duck.. I know from my experiances in the womens yards that they take to the lesbo thing without hesitaion as they DO NOT have the inborded "anti" thing that men do..

The good in this, and the bottom line (sorry) is that the Dems want to make this a party plank at the convention (amaz'n were only 3-4 weeks out on both).. Given the recent show of support for CF, and the cake co.. i'm thinking Krauthammer is right.. they woke up a monster.. IF the lessons of 2010 due to O care being rammed down our throat (don't say it) the public support of values, and O's recent 'gaff's' it might make the race closer.. sure hope so.. poles have it 50/50 with some of them favoring O.. The most important race in our life, and it's pretty exciting that we get to watch it front row center..

How is it, all? Yeah, a lot of comments I'm reading and people I talk to are a good sign. Hell, even the ACLU was (for a change) on the right side, saying that the fringe's response was over the top and they were more worried about this guy's 1st amendment rights.

To put the whole homo-gender union thing to an analogy, I look at it as if my brother (anyone with a brother will get this) shoved me and tried to grab my car keys saying, "I'm driving!"

Now, if he had just asked me nicely if it would be OK to drive, we could have conversed about it and I could bring up my concerns, etc. But no, he wants to take it, so I push him back and we end up in a fist fight and, whoever wins, we are both resentful of each other, won't talk, and probably don't even remember why it was so important.

That, my friend, is the current American culture war. The power brokers are playing, "let's you and him fight"

BTW, Greg: I also was, in my youth, what would be today considered a tree hugging hippy. But I have grown up. It's like whoever it was said: "If you weren't liberal when you were young, you have no heart. If you're still liberal when you're older, you have no brain."

Have a great day, friends.
