Yep and taking drugs is illegal, it has nothing to do with social or moral justice, breaking the law would be defined as criminal justice.

I wish they would just legalize drugs, contrary to what most people would think our business would immediately double.

Westboro is a fucking joke they are made up of about 40-50 people and garner attention by being completely insane. If I had one hope it would be the next serial killer psychopath opens fire on one of their get-togethers. Calling them the far right implies that anyone with any conservative values has something in common with them. They are in fact nut jobs and share very little of their beliefs with anyone I know personally.

Yes, if I were to just accept every law as "just and moral" I'd have no recourse but to agree with you. When there is such a moral and social slant to a law, how does it escape such considerations entirely? That's like saying if Obama passed all manner of socialist law, you'd have no problem with it, cause "it's the law." Hardly.

Absolutely they should be allowed to say they oppose gay marriage and THEY ARE allowed to say they oppose gay marriage. And anyone that thinks they're stupid, repressed, brainwashed homophobes should be allowed to say that and be allowed to organize protests, boycotts and attempt to hurt their business through any legal means they want.

I have to wonder if this is really a Chik-Fil-A viewpoint or a shallow, blatant attempt to manipulate the gay community into declaring war on Chik-Fil-A and get them untold millions in free advertising. That's the thing about the whole gay issue. No matter how stupid you make yourself look by spouting that biblical nonsense condemning gays you automatically pick up the radical right as customers.

People can marry a fence post for all I care. But you don't have to be "radical right" to oppose gay marriage. And by the way, it's Chick-Fil-A with a "c". :-)

Target did it up here, and I think you are onto something. It works for manipulating the masses at the polls quite well. Why not continue the practice down to consumerism? Walmart and Target can just do one-upsmanship and sway people back and forth. Abbleby's will probably promote their "gay-friendly" menu next week. I have no idea what is on that menu... :lol:

Aside from believing what constitutes a marriage in one's own mind, -may I ask:
what happens in day to day life, as an opponent of gay marriage, if it is allowed? Is this what would cause "the end" in December?

Near as I can tell, the biggest opponents are probably the insurance companies. Too many additional people would suddenly be eligible for coverage? And those who deny themselves things under the auspices of religious dogma seem to be most interested in what the remainder of people are doing. Misery loves company? :lol:

Target and Walmart are a little too national, if the go after one side or the other it helps them in some areas and buries them in others. For a company like Chik-Fil-A that is overwhelmingly southern and midwest catering to the bible thumpers is a pretty solid strategy. You have an overwhelming majority of customers who are anti-gay in those areas. Companies that are more northeast and west coast can adopt the other side and start championing the pro-gay agenda because those areas are more wannabe hipster and liberal. I think Apple, Google and other computer tech companies can jump into this fight on the pro-gay side without pissing off their core customers.

The Mayans weren't specific on what causes the end, but I don't think it was a chicken sandwich. :lol:

You raise a good point regarding the insurance companies. As to the "busy bodies" you allude to, they come from all walks of life. It's part of the human condition.

What about a chicken salad sandwich made with mayo that's been sitting in the hot sun all day? That could be the end of anyone.
