#1 Cathy's comments: "We are very much supportive of the family -- the Biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives."
I can see why some folks would consider that "hateful and hurtful". Perhaps they didn't actually read the words?

#2 Probably the best question to ask those who consider Cahty's position as "hateful and hurtful": Absolutely or Relatively? Univerally applicable to all, or JUST YOUR BELIEF? Why should I accept your Judgment of my hatefulness as binding on me when you dismiss my judgment of the sinfulness of the gay lifestyle as "just YOUR opinion?" Well, "JUST YOUR OPINION". So you scream to rally opposition against us, but FORBID us to make a call to rally support for those of YOUR HATE? When the numbers prove to be against you, you Fall back on "My Rights are not to be violated", but scream when we point to Rahm's statement and state "Cathy's rights are being violated."
You don't listen to "religious bigots", and we don't listen to "hypocrites of all stripes, colors, politics, and sexual preferences".
Squeal and scream all you want: YOU'RE NOT SPECIAL.

#3 I support CFA because I oppose gov't actions to restrain speech or religion.
LGBT oppose CFA because it donates money to groups that work to restrict gay 'rights' - not because of Cathy's comments.

#4 Bobby - what the person said has nothing to do with it - it the mere fact that she holds a belief that is not in accordance with the gay agenda. Holding any other opinion but theres is 'Hateful'. A thoughtcrime.
How long before they want to make it illegal with time in Prison for such a 'hatecrime'? You can already get an much extended sentence for having the wrong (meaning 'anti-gay') ideas while committing a crime.

#6 They also give free water to anyone, which is nice not only as an alternative to soda (fast food water goes $1.50-$2.00 out here, usually like 10% more than soda half the amount).
It is also nice when it is hot outside.
I believe the progs have had an agenda concerning CFA, was it about six months ago some GLAD group started making some rumbles, perhaps someone in their infinate wisdom decided that with a couple quotes and an election issue to pull the trigger.

#7 Could I make a discussion, feedback welcom.
Homosexuality is the practice of Creationism. Darwinian evolution relies upon the propagation of a species so that desired traits build into a species' genetics over generations.
Homosexuality, in the pure sense of M/M or F/F, not the too drunk or changed mind etc. In the order of the pure Homosexual, based upon the arguement that a person is born that way and is not a choice*. That is, according to Darwinian Evolution, a dead end. In fact, the only way the Pure Homosexual can propigate is by non-natural ways, described as if the process at some point required electricity/industry it is not a pure natural propigation. That is, humans choosing whether or not to create life and if so by means outside the natural normal means of two beings creating offspring. In a way, deliberate consciencely creating life under very specific wishes outside of the default natural world; Creationism.
*I am aware many people visit this site, and I do only want to open a topic. I like happy people, and people in love tend to be happy people no matter the circumstances. When I was around this crowd and had good friends, it was the arguement that they were created this way, and therefore no amount of prayer or exercism would change who they are - that is what I mean by Pure Homosexual, and contrasted with those who over the course of life perhaps are hetero or at least bi which of course due to the course of life would allow for the chance of children.
I also believe happy people tend to see the world in a true sense, why I rise the subject. Throw stuff at me if you will but really just raising and academic point of order.
