props. Why are people pissed off at him donating to cause he believes in? Not everyone is required to support same sex-marriage. Get over it

At the same time, I'm not gonna make my way through crowds of protesters just for the sake of a burger.

If I wasn't gonna eat at Chick Fil A, it'd be because of the long lines of supports for anti-gay marriage, and the crowds of protesters giving me a headache outside. Not because I want to take any type of particular stance.
Ok. Let's make this very easy for you.

Let's say I own a restaurant. I don't attack black people's right, but I pay other to do it. Are you going to spend your money at my restaurant so that I can then use it to pay someone to attack black people's right?

No.

And this is why I specifically stated that the actions of the group their donating to are significant. It's one thing for to donate to a group that holds anti-gay marriage protest, whiles it's entirely different to donate to a group that goes around spray painting "God hates f*aggs" on peoples houses.

My restaurant, Beef-fil-a, just donated money to support a cause I believe in, repealing the "Loving vs. Virginia" supreme court decision (the one that allows Black people to marry White people, which was illegal previously [see the "Racial Integrity Act of 1924"]).

Not everyone is required to support inter-race marriage.

Get over it.

True. Making a point tho. I personally support gay marriage because I believe they have the right to get married. Just as other people have the right to find homosexuality a 'sin'. Also a right

Actually it's really simple guys: Do you support funding of hate groups or not? You can rationalize all you want to silence your conscience but it all boils down to that question.

Well actually, there are no Chick-Fil-A's in the state where I live, so either way it makes no difference to my conscience.

Well clearly the way you stated the question, didn't actually clarify what you considered a hate group. It would seem our definitions our different.

Vague questions call for vague answers.

YEs. Just as other people have the right to disagree.


You have the right to think Latinos are evil. I have the right to tell you that you're an idiot and I don't like your face in response.
