RE: The snack wars have just gotten ugly [merged w/ CFA hates gheyz]
I want to see that parody of a bunch of four lions standing with the Chick-Fil-A style signs:

"Eat" "Mor" "Kris" "Jins"

I know, I know, tasteless and lowering myself to their level but damn, these people really piss me off sometimes.

Chik-fil-a brand health dives 40% after anti-LGBT remarks.

The bigots are taking a hit.

I just read in my local paper an editorial about how boycotts and pressure on other companies and organizations to distance themselves from Chick-fil-a are issues of "free speech suppression". I think sometimes people on both the left and the right need a refresher course on what "free speech" is and isn't.

Free speech, imho, means the government (key word) can't treat you any differently for speaking your mind. The government can't take action against you (fines, imprisonment, etc). It doesn't protect you from public backlash nor does it insulate you from legal activity that results.

The public is neither required by "free speech" to like nor respect what you have to say. If you own a business and your speech makes people angry, you may lose customers, there may be boycotts and corporations may decide that associating with you is just too damaging to their own brand image. That's not "free speech", that's "free markets".

Well, this is an interesting way to protest: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/us-news-...sfeed=true
I have studied the Bible and the theology behind Christianity for many years. I have been to many churches. I have walked the depth and the breadth of the religion and, as a result of this, I have a lot of bullshit to scrape off the bottom of my shoes. ~Ziploc Surprise

Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we're considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.

Quote:NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Customers across the nation who turned out for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day were in for a surprise, as the chicken restaurant chose today to launch a new product, Hate Sauce.

Delighted customers mobbed the restaurants to try the zesty new sauce, with many chicken fanciers ordering their sandwiches with extra hate. “It’s so spicy it makes your mouth feel like it’s on fire—like a gay couple in hell,” said Harland Dorrinson, who sampled the sauce at a Chick-fil-A in Orlando.

That would be a criminal attack on public health.

In a perfect world they'd all be ordering large ice waters & quoting Proverbs if refused.

I guess I don't need to say it but the Chic Fil A's were jam packed here in Houston. I suspect the churches were encouraging people to go on "intolerance pride day" . I...I mean "appreciation day." I had flashbacks of the civil rights movement going through my head that day.
