Private message me when Orlando or Chick-fil-a try to deny Gay couples entrance into their venues, until then it's a non issue.

Exactly. I support gay couples, but Chik-fil-a is just expressing freedom of speech. They arent beating up gay people. they simply expressed their opinions

There you go again. That's really desperate. You're like Madonna when she does that fake British accent.

Mate first of all you don't know the difference between 'their' and 'they're', second of all... maybe they did this out of passion, maybe out of calculation.

Chik fil A probably has a more conservative clientele anyway. The backlash they got from lefties who likely never eat there anyway was more than negated by the support they received from their right wing customers. They probably actually have seen surging sales since this whole kerfuffle began.

I don't bloody know if Orlando is a conservative or liberal town or somewhere in between, but maybe these blokes figure they can get more support from their hometown fans by makin this public. I'd reckon in general basketball fans are more liberal but then again, mate, NBA players themselves are known to shout 'fuckin faggot' when the mood strikes them. So maybe this calculation will pay off, who bloody well knows??

This definitely is an issue. No, they aren't right for supporting a rights-denying, old-age company that opposes fairness and rights for everybody. We are decades behind on this, and it's getting ridiculous. It's time to grow the hell up. Because of christianity and other religions, we are decades behind in technology, science and morals. It's time to change this.

Holy matrimony isn't defined by a sex.

Marriage is a religious ceremony ... you do know that right ?

How can religion be holding back marriage when it's the route of the event ? The government doesn't get to come in and change it to accommodate gays.

Yes it is, it is specifically defined, with tremendous detail.

I can't even believe you said that.

Those are two separate issues, The first is whether or not it's an issue for someone to utilize their freedom of speech to take an unpopular stance on a controversial subject; whiles the other is simply whether or not their position on the issue is logical or moral.

They don't have to be. The reasons for marriage are to gain protection through the state. There is a separation of church & state. Which is why there are plenty of marriages done without religion involved in any way now. Marriage used to be purely religious, it is no longer that way. Religion should no longer be allowed to rule marriages.

I'm assuming that since you're posting here, you support the world-class athletes of the NBA. Does that make you a world-class athlete?
