"The Chick-fil-A story confirms certain long term and scary tendencies on Left and Right. Among cultural conservatives, there is growing paranoia that they are being driven out of the public sphere. Although the anxiety is often misplaced (the traditional family will survive a sparsely-attended kiss-in at a chicken restaurant) it is validated by the growing authoritarianism of the Left. Someone should explain to Rahm Emanuel that gay rights was supposed to be about guaranteeing privacy, abolishing legal discrimination and defending the dignity of the individual against the prejudice of the mob. It wasn’t supposed to be about creating a new standard of acceptable opinion and enforcing it with the muscle of the state. Liberalism without a profound respect for difference is just fascism by another name."

There are people on both sides of this issue who are obstinately or intolerantly devoted to their own opinions or intolerances, ie bigots.

When did i suggest otherwise?

Maybe. Though in 30-40 years when American society has almost completely accepted homosexuality Chickfila could be looked at in a bad light. But I'm sure there were a lot of companies that were prejudice towards black people and we don't even remember their stance now. It will be interesting to watch it all play out. And by "all" I mean watching the acceptance of homosexuals in society get played out.

30-40 years sounds about right, might take a little longer though. I saw this the other day

Shame all you want...boycott if you choose...completely within anyone's right...but when a government official attempts to use the full governmental authority to suppress a view it is.

How do you look in brown?

I guess the part that is funny/sad/whatever to me is like Cat posted... all the other stuff in the bible that gets ignored... don't eat pork, stone adulterers, etc.... but let's get those GAYs.

In more ways than one

Its not really the most important issue. More people are concered about the economy, or health care, or the war in Afghanistan etc... But those who do care about it one way or the other do tend to be the most vocal.
