You post this and call yourself a liberal. How do you sleep at night?

Also, I don't know anything about Spitzer, maiden name Swallows. I never said there was a cure for people struggling with homosexuality. There are many healthcare centers treating those afflicted with homosexuality with some success. Give them time, who knows perhaps they'll find a cure. We can't cure cancer yet, but we don't simply give up when some Dr. has failed in his therapy.

I'd take a dog for company over a human any day.

As far a gay marriage.....let the "people" decide.....put it to a vote.

Trouble is that the people usually vote against it and then liberal judges overturn the law.

Just like people kept voting to not allow women the vote and people voted to keep segregation.

Just because people 'vote' for something doesn't make it 'right'.

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day brings out supporters, protesters
By John Roberts
Published August 01, 2012

It used to be that taking a bite of a chicken sandwich just meant you were hungry. Now it has become a symbol of whether you stand for or against same-sex marriage, or – alternately – the right to express your personal views without fear of retaliation.

At Chick-fil-A locations across the country, people voted with their wallets today, coming out to express support for the fast-food chain after CEO Dan Cathy said in an interview that he is a firm backer of traditional marriage.


“I believe what the Bible says (about marriage),” Chauncy Fields told us after wolfing down a breakfast of chicken and biscuits. “So I came out here to support Chick-fil-A and the movement.”

Chris Johnson sees a double standard. “He (Dan Cathy) said the exact same thing that President Obama said,” Johnson told Fox News -- referring to the president’s past opposition to gay marriage – “And he gets negativity, and Obama gets positivity.”

At one Atlanta location, the restaurant was packed, while the line for the drive-thru looped twice around the building and out into the street.

The backlash across the country against Chick-fil-A has been ferocious. After the mayors of Chicago and Boston heaped scorn upon the company, the mayor of Washington, DC, suggested it was peddling “hate chicken.”

Those comments drew a sharp response from Rev. William Owens of the Coalition of African American Pastors. “Some people are saying that because of the position that Chick-fil-A is taking, they don’t want them in their cities. It is a disgrace. It is the same thing that happened when I was marching for civil rights, when they didn’t want a black to come into their restaurant," he told a press conference in Washington, DC.

The Chick-fil-A firestorm has taken on different meanings for different people. For some, it harks to the days of intolerance and segregation. For others, it is about religious views of marriage. But for most people who Fox News spoke to today, it is about free speech.

“I think it comes down to a First Amendment issue. I mean, I do believe in the traditional values of marriage between a man and a woman,” youth pastor Stephen Lenahan told Fox News after a leisurely breakfast with three members of his ministry. He is also puzzled as to why Dan Cathy is such a target, when other corporate CEOs who openly support same-sex marriage are not similarly criticized by conservatives.

Lenahan says he sees a bigger issue at work here. “There is kind of a culture war going on and people aren’t really respecting each other and difference of opinion. There’s no dialogue taking place to get to the heart of what we really believe as a nation and what is truth.”

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day – as it is being called was the idea of former Arkansas governor and Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee. But as protests against Chick-fil-A swelled across the country, dozens of groups and prominent individuals joined in support of the company.

Among the groups is Project 21, a black conservative activist organization. One of its members, Demetrios Minor, said critics of Dan Cathy have taken his statements completely out of context. “I think liberals are missing a vital point in their blind hatred of Chick-fil-A,” Minor said in a statement sent to Fox News. “Being against gay marriage is not being anti-gay.”

Crtitics of Chick-fil-A argue that the company’s opposition to gay marriage goes well beyond Dan Cathy’s statements. Over the years, its philanthropic wing, WinShape, has donated millions of dollars to outside organizations that actively lobby against efforts to legalize same-sex marriage.

On Friday, supporters of same-sex marriage will have their say. They plan a “kiss-in” at Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country – encouraging gays and lesbians to share a public display of affection at the home of the chicken sandwich. {ewww gross, my emphasis}

more evidence of how hypocritical and dishonest the closet-dwellers are (no offense).
In 2008 when obama said no marriage for homos, you clowns still voted for him and said oh that's all right. Now some guy who sells chicken sandwiches says the same thing and you get all heated up with outrage. Why?
Because the lib puppet masters TOLD YOU TO!

Here's an idea, dwell on it for a while ......TRY THINKING FOR YOURSELF JUST ONCE!

Oh that's right, I forgot. You aren't capable of thinking, you just FEEL your way through life and let your leaders do all your thinking for you.

OBAMA: I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian — for me — for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.

This whole thing has de freekin railed you guys.

We have a bunch of people going in there and saying **** like "I support what you guys are doing and what you stand for" to some 18 year old kid who is too high and drunk to understand or even care. And a bunch of libs outside the place with signs protesting the chicken and ****. All the while Obama jacks off on all of our faces.

How do you like it?

I think all major US politcal decisions should now be decided through fast food support rallies.

You could have Yes votes show up on one day, No votes on another in the same week - the day wth the most sales carries the decision and thus new policy is formed.

I was in there yesterday and no one said anything about the politics to the young people working there. They were not drunk or high from what I could tell, only very helpful and polite.

The guy asked if he could help me, I told him what I would like, he said thank you and asked which flavor of sauce I would prefer.
A couple minutes later as I was waiting a girl who worked there walked by us and mentioned that there were candy mints in the bowl behind us if we wanted some.
Much better service and better help than at any other fast food chain I've been to in recent memory. Very pleasant.

Now if I happen to go there sometime and the flamers or their closet-buddy supporters decide to get in my way or do something stupid, they might get a reaction.

I'll overlook the 'WTF' as you just having a bad day, but to answer your question:

The US is our biggest trading partner, what goes on over there affects us more than our own decisions here most of the time.

We're doing fine on the resources front, but a lot of our economy is rather stagnent. It would be nice if your political guys could start working together and getting things done to make your country an even better place (and therby our country a better place as well).

Instead we get to hear stories about fast food restaurants becoming the hotbed of political discourse...
