Those that hold events against are the same that hold them for them, just with opposite messages.

Who cares? This means as much as the amount of people protesting the restaurants.

I don't know. It's kind of like the old saying there is no such thing as bad press. For every protestor there will be someone eating in chik fil a to support what they believe in. I hate to say this but this may end up benefiting chik fil a. Only time will tell.

Yup. The entire thing has been stupid and gay activists have been, and currently are, shooting themselves in the foot.

You want sooooo bad for it to mean nothing. Just like the Tea Party. It a sign of the strength of the conservative movement and a sign of the response to extreme intolerance on the left

It could just as easily be argued that all this shows solidarity on the left in response to intolerance on the right. They cancel each other out and become meaningless BS.

And just so you know, I don't want this to be anything but over because the whole thing is so ridiculous Americans everywhere should be ashamed this has got to this point.

This was perpetuated by the whole "boycott Chik-Fil-A" thing and the proposed "Kiss-In" where gays were going to go to Chik-Fil-A and make very public displays of affection and dare Chik-Fil-A to make them leave. I think it is great. It is time for these obnoxious liberals to grasp the concept that they are not the only ones who have a voice and can have an "in-your-face" attitude about personal beliefs.

Yes, but that doesn't mean that conservatives should stand on the sideline with their hands in their pockets while the empty can rattles loudly. If liberals want to be in-your-face with their pro-gay marriage rhetoric and liberal ideals then they need to accept that conservatives can be just as in-your-face with their own ideals and values. Conservative does not mean weak, passive or inept.

Liberals call for a boycott of Chik-Fil-A and other than the Muppets thing (which was pretty lame) it has accomplished nothing. Chik-Fil-A has been as busy as ever in spite of the boycott. Huckabee calls for a support day for Chik-Fil-A and Americans pour out in droves to show their support. As far as I am concerned that speaks volumes.

The first 2 chick fil a's i went to were about a 45 minute wait inside and out , Finally made it in to a Truett's which is chick fil a's sister company and it took 30 mins. I agree this has gotten out of hand but if the liberals want a fight the conservatives are there to kick there tails.

again side stepping?
well I should have expected that...

When they are about gay rights and Woman Rights? at times YOU DO NOT get the luxury of having an personal opion being the head of a large corporation. He brought this to his door now he can deal with the blow back.


However, I will agree that he has the right to his opinions and free speech. But he has to deal whatever comes with it.

I would say it's for the same reason you won't admit it'both sides until you can't defend the conservatives.

Well maybe not you, but conservatives. This is something I've noticed around here, and maybe I'm biased but more conservatives will get up in arms about something a dem did that reps have done many times before than the reverse. Conservatives will also claim more "liberal propaganda" is posted here than anything, despite the fact there are more conservative leaning posters and posts, including the feeds by mikesilvia who admits most of "his" feed-posts are right wing. Conservatives will also rag on a Dem, pretending a Rep has never done [ACTION] until irrefutable proof is handed in, at which point it changes to, "Well it's on both sides."

Most Conservatives will defend Rush Limbaugh than Liberals will defend Harry Reid, from what I can see.

Wickabee
08-02-2012, 01:52 PM
Oh, and for the record I think even Oreo would eventually admit that was a PR stunt, they'd just add "but we mean it" at the end of the statement (whether they do or not)
Chik-Fil-A would never admit this was a PR stunt (even if it was) but would all "but we mean it" at the end of the statement

They and yourself have every right to speak out against gay right and gay marriage. AS I have the very same right to speak in opposition.
