Media Covers Kiss-In, Ignores Success Of Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day

August 6, 2012 by  

Media Covers Kiss-In, Ignores Success Of Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day
Wednesday was Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Friday was the day same-sex couples staged "kiss-in" protests at Chick-fil-A restaurants.

A lack of media coverage of Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day has some people thinking the mainstream media are chicken. Are they afraid to cover a story that does not further their agenda?

While many outlets did cover the event, it was not given adequate treatment in several publications. At least not as much as the “kiss-in” that took place Friday.

The restaurant set a sales record Wednesday. The chain will not release sales numbers, but Steve Robinson, Chick-fil-A’s executive vice president of marketing, confirmed that the company set a record. There is reason to believe that it was a world record.

Under any other circumstances, one would expect to find major coverage of world record sales. However, as reported by the Weekly Standard, there was no front-page coverage of the event in The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the Sun-Sentinel or The Boston Globe. And many media outlets that did cover the event only mentioned it in passing, or in an attempt to make Chick-fil-A supporters seem like hateful bigots.

One would think that the number of people involved in an event would largely influence the coverage of a story. However, the “kiss-in” continues to receive attention despite a lack of a nationwide involvement.

Huffington Post sent out multiple tweets in an attempt to get photos of “kiss-in” participants. It seems they knew they would have to doctor the photos to make it appear as though the kiss-in drew the same number of supporters as Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Huffington Post resorted to: “Or even if you’re not going — send us your gay kiss photo!”

Many news outlets seem to be using photos and video clips of Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day in stories about the “kiss-in” in such a way that the average browser at first glance might think the droves of people are “kiss-in” supporters. Like this one, this one, this one and this one.

      8/8/12, BO’s on the ropes; he’s in trouble. It’s not so much what he believes as what his handlers propped up in that empty suit.

  • Paul Wells

    My view is that 90% of the moral morass we find ourselves in is because the liberal mainstream media so “picks and chooses” and doctors the news with a left leaning slant that many Americans simply don’t hear the whole story. Anyone who gets their news from CNN/ABC/NBC/msNBC (particularly bad!!)/CBS is just getting what the looney left wants you to hear. Also, never say anything nice about a Conservative seems to be their motto!

    Same thing here in Racine Wisconsin. One underaged (17 year olds they stated) female couple showed up to kiss at our local Chick-fil-A and it was plastered on the front page of the newspaper………go figure.

        Apparently they make for good kindling. (-:


    NBC reported about Wed. Appreciation Day a few times the night before and thru -out the Wednesday with about a 30 sec report. Come Thursday night and Friday mornig from about 5 am until the Olympics started, they brought up the Chick-Fil-A “Kiss in” about every 15 -20 minutes and was asking not just Gays to come but any couple to show up to support. The news coverage for the successful Wednesday got about 10% the news coverage the Fri Kiss in got. Turns out, both days was a bust for the qu33rs though.

  • FedUp

    I don’t give a damn about chick f-a……The media has over done this story, so much, that the damn MEDIA doesn’t even report on REAL issues anymore.There are NO good journalists out there anymore…The Media is a Farce, and now I only read Drudge…at least they write REAL NEWS!!! There are more important things going on right now in this country than chic-f-a,or however you spell the damn name. Our MEDIA died a long time ago….they are NOT dependable anymore, and I refuse to even take the newspaper anymore.

  • Peter Davis

    Most Democrats (i.e., liberals, progressives, etc) support anti-family, anti-life values. It’s simply part of the requirement for being a good Democrat. Democrats are required to align in lock-step with the Democrat platform; they are not allowed to think for themselves and they are not allowed to differ in opinion from the Democrat platform. All Democrats are useful idiots for the Democrat party. Democrats are never allowed to support anything that is pro-America, pro-life, pro-family or any other traditional values. How very, very sad for America. God will judge us individually and as a nation.

    II Chron 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    • brett

      your view is so biased and untrue. i hope that when you stand before st. peter, you can explain all the hate and intolerance expressed here. may god bless you all.

      • Alex Frazier

        What hate and intolerance might you be referring to? Everyone on this forum has the right to his or her opinion. Everyone here has the right to voice that opinion. Everyone here has the right to believe as they choose.

        What no one here has the right to do is force through legislation that tries to force religious-minded folks to acknowledge gay marriage against their beliefs.

        What no one here has the right to do is ban a restaurant chain from opening a store in your city for the crime of exercising their freedom of religion and speech.

        When all is said and done, it’s not really marriage that the gays are after. Nor is it equal rights. They were offered civil unions already, which provided the equal rights they claim to be after. It wasn’t good enough for them. What they really want is legislation that forces people to acknowledge their deviant behavior as normal when we all know that it is not.

        You cry about hate and intolerance. How about the gays who are intolerant of religious folks who disagree with their lifestyle? How about the gays who are intolerant of a person exercising their freedom of speech?

        My kids are taught in school that it’s “okay to be gay,” which flies in the face of my religion. I’m expected to be tolerant of it. If I say anything, I’m just an intolerant, homophobic biggot. If I speak out against gays, it’s the same thing.

        But gays can loiter nationwide in a family restaurant, gay kissing in front of children … and that’s worthy of national headlines. Good for them! The gays really struck a blow for homosexual rights.

        Just take your liberal, heathen perspective and stick it up your backside, assuming nothing’s in it right now.

      • 45caliber


        I think Peter will be better able to explain to St. Peter what his actions were than you will be able to do.

      • Jay

        It is true that some people are attracted to their own sex, and especially to the young of their sex. Although this attraction exists, those wishing to promote homosexuality as normal human behaviour inflate the numbers involved. The depraved Alfred Kinsey (1894-1956) and his flawed research are responsible for this lie. This exaggeration of homosexuality within society is an essential stratagem used by activists.

        Past generations acknowledged this sexual impulse but ancient morality and societal censure ensured that it was not only contained but also rendered a social benefit.

        In more moral times, those suffering its torments were expected to control their homosexual urges. Society expected deviant sexuality to be controlled and not indulged. Homosexuality was sublimated from base and obscene attraction and turned to socially beneficial uses. Persons, who had understood their duty to the society in which they lived, and curtailed their deviant sexuality, could be found in socially beneficial positions such as the teacher, the priest and the military officer. Choosing not to have their own children, they became fathers to everyone’s children.

        Their homosexuality, which could have been a latent threat to vulnerable youth, was rendered by moral effort into a social asset that contributed to social continuity, and to the inheritance of future generations. The moral effort necessary for this sublimation of base sex urges was achieved by either voluntary renunciation or, more commonly, by fear of exposure and shame: either one turned base lust into noble charity. The homosexual who had transposed his lusts in this way had made a sacrifice on behalf of society and had thereby acquired a personal interest in society.

        By his personal sacrifice, the homosexual had purchased an interest in the future of the society in which he had creatively participated and therefore he had acted selflessly to conserve it for future generations.

        The libertine homosexual who makes no such sacrifice does not share in this congenial arrangement. To this predatory animal, the sexual act is everything. The sex act is to this species of sexual predator simply a contract of immediate and present pleasure between consenting parties. This instant gratification of base desires is divorced from the notion of childbearing and nurturing, and contains neither a commitment to home, nor an investment in the future. The deeply selfish notion that insists that other generations have no intrinsic interest in their activities is a pernicious element in this morality.

        Furthermore, if loyalties spring up in such liaisons, then this also is a concern of the “consenting adults” involved, and not the concern of anyone outside the relationship, either past, present or to come. Unprecedented promiscuity is the consequence of this sexual and moral libertarianism, this Cult of Homosexuality.

        Here, libertarian homosexuals are free of any concerns for the future well-being of society. They are also free of the burdens of homebuilding and childbearing, and untroubled by the mysterious interdiction exerted by the opposite sex.

        Consequently, the liberated homosexual abandons himself in instantaneous gratifications without depth or meaning. A new morality accompanies this libertarian homosexuality predicated upon the idea that homosexuality is merely one choice on a menu of options.

        The cause of society’s travails today is that it is now structured around the ego; it is an egotistical age in which “Self” is raised to unprecedented heights. Individuals frame their questions in the first person singular and ask “Why shouldn’t I?” and its sister riposte, “What has it to do with you?” Modern society is now deeply selfish.

        However, morality has a social function. Its purpose is to perpetuate the social order and conserve it for those still unborn.

        Morality is the bodyguard of social order. Hence, morality’s language is very different from the voice of contemporary society; it is that of the first person plural. It is “we” not “me.” Its embrace is not only the living, but also the unborn and the dead. Questions put in this wise rapidly produce very different answers.

        A moral dichotomy arises because of this new libertarianism that should properly called libertinism: a lifestyle devoid of any moral or sexual restraints; spurning all religious norms, accepted morals, and forms of behaviour sanctioned by society.

        Ancient morality conserves social order and moral collateral while the modern selfish libertinism seeks to squander the moral capital garnered by past generations by toil and sacrifice.

        This selfish liberality is encapsulated in the personal philosophies of prominent men who were also sexually incontinent homosexuals.

        Egotistical philosophy is central to the economic theories of the effete intellectual, John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946), the authentic voice of Bloomsbury homosexuality; a group of kindred spirits who, apart from being artistic and intellectual snobs, preached and practised decadent sexual mores.

        Keynes believed that in economic theory human beings were nothing more than walking corpses, and therefore, were free of any moral compunction to safeguard society for future generations. ”In the long run,” he said, ”we are all dead.” Keynes put this creed of the economic zombie at the heart of his economic theory whose main tenet was that it was right and proper to pay the debts of the living by mortgaging the capital of their children.

        In this morality, death and annihilation awaits us all at life’s end. Therefore, the period between birth and death is all that matters and one must seize the moment at every opportunity without regard or concern for future generations. Such self-absorption leaves no room for consideration of others, especially those still unborn.

        The new morality leaves future generations to fend for themselves in a world whose moral capital has already been squandered. The disenfranchisement of future generations is the primary consequence of sexual and moral libertarianism, the Cult of Homosexuality, and the immorality that licenses it.

        The shameless homosexual does not want or seek continuity. He has no inner urge to procreate and he is removed from the natural processes of evolution as can be imagined.

        That is why the new libertarian homosexual morality is an outrage to Nature and to the past generations of people (including the homosexual who sublimated his sexual urges) who sacrificed rather than indulge themselves for the good of the society in which they lived.

      • moonbeam

        When we stand before St Peter? Oh yeah, you mean the Peter who denied knowing the Lord before the cockcrowed thrice? The same Peter who preached a different doctrine than Jesus? The one that Paul had to specifically admonish for preaching what Christ did not preach? LOL!!!! WOW! Talk about being deceived!

        You will stand before the Lord God Almighty in that Great Day to give an account of yourself and be judged accordingly, brett. Not Peter a mere man.

    • JeffH

      Peter Davis, one little correction…you generalize with the Democrats. I would say Marxist/progressives/liberals of which many consider themselves to be “independant” of political parties. The problem is that a large number of them despise religion, the biggest reason for their immorality.

      Over the past decade, considerable research has emerged that demonstrates the benefits of religious practice within society. Religious practice promotes the well-being of individuals, families, and the community.

      Of particular note are the studies that indicate the benefits of Religion to the poor. Regular attendance at religious services is linked to healthy, stable family life, strong marriages, and well-behaved children. The practice of Religion also leads to a reduction in the incidence of domestic abuse, crime, substance abuse, and addiction. In addition, religious practice leads to an increase in physical and mental health, longevity, and education attainment. Moreover, these effects are intergenerational, as grandparents and parents pass on the benefits to the next generations.

      America’s Founding Fathers understood the vital role that Religion plays in a free society. Far from shielding the American people from religious influence, the Founders promoted the freedom of religion and praised the benefits that it brings to society.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        Progressives/Leftists do not hate religion as long as it is their own version of it. Notice how they love to tell the Jews, Christians and Conservatives and/ or Libertarians what they should believe, what their ideology is supposed to be, what part politics plays in their lives.
        Probably as we post, the Leftists/Progressives are already formulating their religion to draw iin all religions into their fold as long it is not Judaism and Christianity.

    • Ms.Young

      If you Are “Gods People” when will you turn from your wicket way of hate for people who do not think like you.You Like Bible Verses Check This One Out!
      ROMANS 2
      Yet we cannot judge them, for we also are sinners: God is the only judge
      1-2 Those people (IN ROMANS CHAPTER ONE) are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. It takes one to know one. Judgmental criticism of others is a well-known way of escaping detection in your own crimes and misdemeanors. But God isn’t so easily diverted. He sees right through all such smoke screens and holds you to what you’ve done.
      3-4You didn’t think, did you, that just by pointing your finger at others you would distract God from seeing all your misdoings and from coming down on you hard? Or did you think that because he’s such a nice God, he’d let you off the hook? Better think this one through from the beginning. God is kind, but he’s not soft. In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change.
      5-8You’re not getting by with anything. Every refusal and avoidance of God adds fuel to the fire. The day is coming when it’s going to blaze hot and high, God’s fiery and righteous judgment. Make no mistake: In the end you get what’s coming to you—Real Life for those who work on God’s side, but to those who insist on getting their own way and take the path of least resistance, Fire!

        Pay special attention to that last line…..all you entitleist leeches.

      • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Ariviste

        Wow, fire and brimstone! Aren’t you judging those who disagree with you?

        • Ms.Young

          I am Just giving you the bible verse on the subject since you people like to quote Romans Chapter1

      • cawmun cents

        She has left out the pertinent connective scripture which came right before these which she shares.This is merely an admonishment for those who thought they had legal propriety because they were’nt Jewish,and therefore had no connectiion to Christ’s death.
        Paul points out that only by Jesus sacrificing himself could we be saved from our improprieties,whether you were a deviant as described in Romans 1:18-32,or whether you were just trying to be absolved of your guilt by thinking you were good enough to make the grade.This part has been conveniently left out by Ms.Young,and not telling the whole truth is the same as lying.
        If you intend to use scripture to condemn others,make sure that it was inspired by the Holy Spirit,and that you are developing your content via exegesis.
        Otherwise you are merely voicing your opinion of the context and using the content for your own nefarious purposes.That action is not in keeping with Christian character,nor Christendoms values.
        Defending the deviancy of homosexuality was never the intent of Paul and the other writers of scriptural context.
        It is only a ploy used by those who do not fully realize the extent to which they will go to push heretical idealism.
        They write their own ticket,and shout loudly while they think others are listening.
        There is no need to judge them, for they write their own judgement upon themselves.

      you need to read your Bible. God destroyed two major cities due to homosexuality. Does that mean he loves those people less? I don’t think so, BUT he does view homosexuality as a sin. Ever heard of love the sinner but hate the sin?

      • Ms.Young

        Sodom and Gomorrah
        In the 16th chapter of the prophet Ezekiel, the Lord says to the city of Jerusalem, “This was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit” (Ezekiel 16:49-50).
        This is not the spiritual inventory that many of us would expect. Ezekiel doesn’t even mention the specific nature of Sodom’s sexual sin. Instead, he adds to a list of root sins, “and they were haughty and committed abomination before MeJesus and Sodom
        In some ways it seems ironic that Jesus can be thought of as a friend of sinners. How can He be? What interest would such people have in a rabbi who, in His disputes with other religious leaders, raises the law of God higher than anyone has ever lifted it before?
        Yet Jesus is not the normal moralist. He speaks as if breaking moral law is less of an issue than rejecting Him.
        Expressing His lament over the lakeshore community where He had headquartered for three years, Jesus says, “And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you” (Matthew 11:23-24; see also Luke 4:31-41).
        The people of Sodom had been proud. But the community of Capernaum saw the King of heaven clothe Himself with humility.
        The people of Sodom had fullness of food. But the people of Capernaum had seen, or at least heard, how Jesus had fed thousands with a small boy’s lunch.
        The people of Sodom indulged themselves with leisure. But the residents of Capernaum wasted and lost the time they had to discover God, their Savior, in the person of His Son.
        The citizens of Sodom saw no need to help the poor. But the people of Capernaum saw with their own eyes how the long-awaited Messiah of Israel reached out to the most needy and miserable among them.
        In Summary
        What we have seen is that no one can rightly point to the sins of Sodom as a way of feeling morally superior about themselves.
        Sodom and Gomorrah are certainly not to be envied. Living more than 1,200 feet below sea level, on the shore of the Dead Sea, these two twin cities sank low enough spiritually to be judged by fire from heaven.
        But their judgment does not make them uniquely evil or miserable. Ezekiel makes it clear that the “abominable” things Sodom is known for are rooted in equally detestable sins of pride, fullness of food, abundance of idleness, and a failure to help the poor and needy.
        When combined with the stories of Jerusalem and Jesus, Sodom is an example of how pagan communities can be worthy of judgment, while still being less guilty in God’s eyes than those who have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to who Christ is and what His Spirit wants to do in and through us.
        Father in heaven, please help us to see that none of us is in a position to feel morally superior to others. None of us deserves Your grace. None of us is entitled, on our own merits, to look down on another. All of us need to see that nothing is more important than our relationship to the inexhaustible love that, by Your Son, You have shown for the present citizens of Sodom, Jerusalem, and our town

    • Lisa Toomey

      Sorry Tamara A, but there is no conclusive scientific evidence that homosexuality is a genetic trait. You have obviously been influenced by the very media bias that this article decries. Alcoholics actually are “born that way’ but they learn not to indulge every primal urge that comes over them. As most true Christians do, I make judgements on behaviour, not people, and try to resist the urge to determine whether the behaviour of others makes God sad, and concentrate on my own behaviour. However, in society, we are called to attempt to maintain a level of acceptable behaviour which is fitting with the laws of nature. Marriage is a long established institution which has always and will always hold certain restrictions including age, gender, genetic relationship, multiple partners, etc. These restrictions are necessary to maintain reasonable societal structure. You may find this sad, but some others find it sad that there are people who are prisoners to their homosexual urges. So as you can surely see, people who disagree with you are no more hate filled than you are

    • Brad

      Tamra A,
      First you need to take two steps back and look at the whole picture, when you see the entire picture you’ll see your conclusion are entirely wrong. If you so called Democrats love this country so much why are Democrats endorsing an administration hell bent on destroying this country through socialist changes making more citizens dependant on government. Tamra A, where is your proof homosexuals are born that way, science hasn’t discovered the so called gay gene, homosexuality is a life style choice, that’s what you need to learn. Without modern day science a homosexual couple cannot reproduce, either through artificial ensemination or adoption. When you hate the opposite sex so who are the real haters, make one think don’t you agree. Let me ask you a quick question, when can a square peg fit into a round hole, it can’t so your idea about homosexuals is scewed. I find homosexuals less tollerant, trying to shove their life style down the general publics throat, they don’t love all they love their life style. Jesus died for our sins and that includes homosexuals, God would have all homosexuals repent and embrace him and Jesus Christ. So who’s being ugly, in my opinion, you are, because you aren’t tollerant to all life styles and personal opinions, just look at Chicago’s Mayor and Boston’s Mayor. Rahm Emanual endorses Lewis Ferakahn values and Lewis Ferahkan preaches that homosexuality is wrong, so who is the bigger hypocrit, Rahm Emanual or Dan Cathy? Dan Cathy believes in his 1st Amendment rights where as Rahm Emanual would suppress his rights. Please look at both sides of the discushion, use your brain instead of relying on the MSM for your talking points. I’m tollerant and am willing to allow people to live their life them deam fit, but when one life style demands recognition above and beyond the rest and a political party takes up the cuase that’s where it’s wrong. So who’s nasty?

        Homesexuality is NOT an Alternative Lifestyle for the hetorosexual

      • Brad

        Ms. Young,
        Homesexuality, “duha” I know it’s not an alternative life style where as HOMOSEXUALITY is, it’s a choice individuals make whether its been through a tragic event, sexual assualt, or evan a desire. So, in short a choice is made by the individual, plain and simple, I know that do you?

        Ms. Young what Christianity are you talking about because Biblical Christianity denounces homosexualiity?

      Tamra, you need to read the Bible. God is perfect and because He is perfect is incapable of creating imperfection. Because He wanted companions and not automatons, He created man with free will, which is the right to chose. Eve chose to listen to and believe satan, and Adam chose to follow her lead and eat the forbidden fruit. They CHOSE sin. To say that homosexuals were born that way is to say that God made them imperfect, which is not possible. They CHOSE the lifestyle and try to justify the choice by saying that God made them that way. You will read in the Bible that God made his statement about homosexuality by destroying Sodom and Gommorah, and if you open your eyes to see, you will see that the further this country gets away from God the more he removes his hand of protection.

      Personally It only matters to me that when people choose to be homosexuals, by this choice they are condemning themselves to eternity in Hell. No soul should go to that place, but because it is a choice there will be many that do. If they do not wish to choose salvation that is on them, but please keep this immoral behaviour behind closed doors and out of my face.

      If you wish to condemn me because I detest Homosexuality you need to figure out where you wish to spend eternity, because I am a firm believer in the absolute truth contained in the Bible. There is NO in between, you either accept and believe it or you don’t. There are many groups that will find out that cherry picking what to believe results in condemnation not from me, but from God. That would include you if you persist in believing that God creates imperfection.

      There is at least one mistake in what you stated. You said that the homosexuals are monogamous. A few are, yes. But the average number of lovers a hetrosexual has in a lifetime is 3. The average a gay person has is over 1,000. I wouldn’t call that monogamous.

      • Bob

        Tamara, The CDC reported about 20 yrs ago that the average life span of Homosexuals was 15 to 25 yrs less than the national average. The report found the cause to be their nasty habits. This was before the AIDS epidemic. The major cause of premature death was internal diseases caused by the ingestion of Feces! They also have %500 above average number of cononostomies (SPELLING?).You can call this normal if you want to, but us normal folks don’t think so.








    • Nadzieja Batki

      But you are the one stroking the computer keys and telling of your hate for the people who don’t agree with your nonsensw namely Christians, Jews, Conservatives and Libertarians.
      If you love people so much why would you be willing for them to self destruct by their sexual behaviours?

      • Nadzieja Batki

        The comment was to Tamra just to make sure.

      • Ms.Young

        The only Reason they are self destructing by their sexual behaviours is because people like you will not let them have a relationship with God! listen to this song:

        Lot attempted to defend the homosexuals of Sodom,to the extent of offering his daughters to the men who had demanded Lot to bring his guests(angels)out so that the men could”know’them.
        Lot still tried to convince the angels not to destroy the city,but they were only there to retrieve Lot and his family to begin with.
        But the homosexuals were struck blind by the angels,and then wandered blindly until their destruction.
        This is a microcosm of today.
        They have been blinded and wander,waiting for their destruction.
        They have not learned from ancient times that God will not harbor and protect them if they continue in their sinful existence.
        read as follows:

        1 Timothy 1:7-11
        7 They want to be known as teachers of the law of Moses,but they dont know what they are talking about even though they seem so confident.8 We know these laws are good when they are used as God intended.9 But they were not made for people who do what is right.They are for people who are rebellious,who are ungodly and sinful,who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy,who murder their father and mother or other people.
        10 These laws are for people who are sexually immoral,for homosexuals and slave traders,for liars and oathbreakers,and for those who do anything else that contradicts right teaching11 that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.

        There you have it.
        Paul talking directly to Timothy about what we are blogging about.
        Intersting how some will try to twist these words to meanwhat they imagine them to mean in order to directly contradict the words the Holy Spirit gave to Paul,which he later wrote for Timothy.

      I don’t care to see heterosexuals OR homosexuals making out in public. Keep your love life to yourself. That is not the place for it no matter what your sexual persuasion. While you are quoting scripture, how about all those passages that say homosexuality is a sin. If they keep it out of my face, I won’t be likely to judge them, but please do not judge me because my opinion isn’t the same as yours.

    • gunner689AI

      Oh yeah; sticking your manhood where another man defecates is normal behavior.

  • brett

    you say that you justify your beliefs and values on the bible. which one? i have a new version bible. which in itself is an example of the inherent issue. the old testament has so many translations that even the jews can’t decide what’s proper. the dead sea scrolls are the edited out texts that those in power decided to censor. there are so many christian versions, whose to say which is true? maybe the mormons are the true faith!

    • Alex Frazier

      To make that argument is as bad as someone making up statistics. Everything you just said is so wrong it’s not even funny.

      The Dead Sea Scrolls are believed by experts to have likely belonged to a sect known as the Essenes. They were a divergent group that followed Judaism, but differently from the mainstream Jews in Jerusalem. Amongst the Dead Sea Scrolls were found other documents that are recognized as psuedopigraphical. They weren’t cannonical scripture.

      The practice of the Jews was very exact when copying the scrolls. They counted letters, lines, pages, and had a number of tests to maintain the integrity of the scriptures when copying them. There was a single set of scrolls for temple use. When it was worn out, it was copied, and then buried.

      Following the second temple period when the Jews were expelled from the holy land, the standard text became the Masoretic Text, while around the same time Roman Christians codified the new and old testament texts in the Latin Vulgate.

      By the fourth century, all the texts were codified, and modern methods of textual criticism have established a believable recreation of the autographs of the known cannonized texts.

      Don’t make ignorant statements about things you don’t know anything about.

      • brett

        you have your spin, i have mine. codified and edit is the same in my book. doesn’t change the assertion as to which faith is right and why. your sentiments towards my posterior are, are both hateful and smacks of intolerance.

        brett, you are the one making the issue of your posterior.

  • David

    Tamra says it like it is. The local media totally covered the Chik-Fil-A bigotry support in spades. The kiss-in didn’t have the impact because there are far fewer gays than narrow-minded, pseudo–Christian, ignorant bigots.

    As to the news, obviously the writer who slammed CNN, etc. failed to note the huge right-wing slant of such programs as Fox News and the plethora of hate spewing, gutter wallowing, money grubbing talking asses that passes for today’s pseudo-conservative radio and TV jocks. These people try to pass themselves off as conservatives, but that is so far from the truth as to be almost laughable if it weren’t so darn serious. These people are poisoning our society. So, you guys listen to Fox News and these haters so you can become stupid and ugly, if you aren’t already there.

    Get a clue, people. The media gives us what sells. You want to change what they give us, change what you want to hear. But please, put your thinking cap on first.

    • Alex Frazier

      Just so I’m clear on your position here …

      1. Christians are biggots because they disagree with homosexual behavior.

      2. Gays are the champions of freedom because they disagree with Christian beliefs.

      What makes Christians hateful biggots because they disagree with gays loitering in a family restaurant, kissing and making out where young children can see?

      • Proud American

        Hi Alex,
        Thank you Alex for speaking the truth on everything that you wrote, well said.

    • Brad

      Liberals hate it when they are proven wrong, it’s about a persons 1st Amendment right’s and the left has taken it completely all wrong. So who’s being bigots, democrats and the homosexual loby.

      • 45caliber


        The libs are always right – even when they are wrong. They make the facts fit their fantasies rather than the other way around. And if a fact doesn’t fit, then it is ignored. And, if worse comes to worst, they simply blame “society” rather than take responsibility for their own mistakes.

      • Brad

        Hey 45caliber

        What’s the best way to trip up a liberal/progressive, give them the facts then watch them tappdance around their answer. By the way I have one for my home defense along with my 12 gage Winchester.

    • Richard

      David, since you seem to have fallen for the Extremely slanted MSM coverage of “news”, I suggest that you go and live for a while in those bastions of freedom called Zimbabwe or North Korea, where the ONLY media is controlled by Big Brother. Lots of truth there… You will then get to see where the present administration is taking us.

      You are right, the kiss-in didn’t work because there aren’t that many homosexuals, and most normal people find their behaviour disgusting in any case. Any bigotry on display here is from you, since you seem quite intolerant of any view opposing yours. You should get a grip and try looking at both sides before you make such comments as you have here. The only people that are poisoning our society are those that are taking us down a path of socialism and they reside presently in the White House.

      I watch Fox news because they at least ATTEMPT a balanced approach to what is going on in the world. When they have a liberal (Bob beckel, for instance) to present that side, they invariably show their ignorance and slavish adherance to the liberal mantra. How do I know they are lying? Because I have lived for 66 years and I was alive when the seeds that are now coming to fruition they talk about were planted by the Democrats. Blame Bush and the Republicans all you want, but I know the truth. You are gullible (and stupid) if you believe anything reported in the MSM.

      • brett

        fox is balanced? four to one odds and the game played with bob is to kick the liberal! supposition and conjecture does not make for true journalism. 66 years at sucking at the status quo’s teat. the msm includes fox. they are all out to make money. controversy and a good fight playing off each other makes for a good profit.

  • Lisa Toomey

    Sorry Tamara A, but there is no conclusive scientific evidence that homosexuality is a genetic trait. You have obviously been influenced by the very media bias that this article decries. Alcoholics actually are “born that way’ but they learn not to indulge every primal urge that comes over them. As most true Christians do, I make judgements on behaviour, not people, and try to resist the urge to determine whether the behaviour of others makes God sad, and concentrate on my own behaviour. However, in society, we are called to attempt to maintain a level of acceptable behaviour which is fitting with the laws of nature. Marriage is a long established institution which has always and will always hold certain restrictions including age, gender, genetic relationship, multiple partners, etc. These restrictions are necessary to maintain reasonable societal structure. You may find this sad, but some others find it sad that there are people who are prisoners to their homosexual urges. So as you can surely see, people who disagree with you are no more hate filled than you are.

    • brett

      alcoholism is not genetic, its neurological. nature has shown homosexual tendencies within many species, most notable in penguins.

      • Peter

        …and because of natural selection, those animals which display such tendencies die off in one generation, such that that disposition is excluded from the strength of the species.
        BTW, this does NOT mean I condone killing homosexuals, just in case your ‘brain’ works that way. If you have the courage, i invite you to read this article:

  • brett

    religious freedom and freedom from religion:
    [when] the [virginia] bill for establishing religious freedom… was finally passed,… a singular proposition proved that its protection of opinion was meant to be universal. where the preamble declares that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed, by inserting the word “jesus christ”, so that it should read “a departure from the plan of jesus christ, the holy author of our religion.’ the insertion was rejected by a great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend within the mantle of its protection the jew and the gentile, the christian and mahometan, the hindoo and infidel of every denomination.”- thomas jefferson: autobiography, 1821.

  • brett

    “we have no right to prejudice another in his civil enjoyments because he is of another church [ creed or way of life].” –thomas jefferson: notes on religion, 1776.

  • http://None Jerry

    Homosexuals consider it hatred when we, as Christians, don’t agree with their lifestyle. That, in itself, is a form of hatred: falsely accusing someone else of hatred because we believe their lifestyle is sinful, then hating us for it. Well, we love homosexuals, it’s the lifestyle we oppose.

  • brett

    all because the klan, nazis, the aryan nation, and other sects who believe in intolerance based on different religious beliefs have the right to free speech doesn’t mean that good people have to silently stand by and do nothing.

    I’m sure most of you have seen the YouTube video posted by Adam Smith who verbally harrassed the girl at the drive-through window at Chick-fil-A. The funniest part of his video is when he says in a high-pitched squeeky, lispy voice “and I’m not even gay”. Thanks for giving me a good laugh, Adam.

      A quote from the above article:
      “The marriage views that prompted Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to denounce Chick-fil-A and its jobs as unwelcome in a city plagued by crime and unemployment apparently did not bother Emanuel when spouted by his former boss, President Barack Obama, who embraced same-sex marriage only three months ago. As for those “Chicago values” of which Chick-fil-A ran afoul, don’t ask Emanuel to explain how a family-owned company that graciously serves gays and lesbians along with anyone else willing to buy its chicken sandwiches offends Windy City ideals but anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan — whom Emanuel embraced the same week he was chiding Chick-fil-A —does not.

      Consistency never has been the strong suit of the marriage redefinition crowd. Nor has respect for diversity — if by the term one means ideological, not simply sexual, difference.”

    i had my brush with being gay. or was i? i’m not sure. it seemed so pre-ordained, oh yes, being a guy i have to ogle girls and pursue them. we would go to the bars and the guys would nudge each other, look at that one over there, and i would try to figure out which one they meant. even if i could see who she was, i never saw anyone who was life changing. until that ride in the elevator, february 1983. goodness gracious, what had i been missing? and what’s interesting is, that was 29 years ago. if she was 21 then she’s 50 now, and probably just as stellar, and radiantly slim, as she was then. you reading this, you know who you are, reading your wall street journal in the henry gilman elevator. a world of thanks.

  • DaveK

    Retail business owners can espouse any beliefs they care to.
    People can choose to be customers of stores for what ever reasons they choose to.

    My take:
    I saw PLENTY of coverage of the Wednesday support of the restaurant chain. I saw VERY LITTLE of the “kiss-in” except a notice in the local paper. I also saw little of the permit question, ie R Emanuel on the news.

    I am not a constitutional expert, but, I doubt that it is legal for a servant of the state to deny a permit because of someone’s beliefs.

    I think people on this site generally like to find things not to like about our president. I bet they even think he lied about saying his “father served in WWII” because his father would have been too young. They probably forgot or intentionally omitted that Obama was raised by his grandparents and usually referred to them as mother and father.

    again, all because your bible says it doesn’t mean that my bible does. wwjd? my jesus taught tolerance, respect of what was deemed different, love, and not to be judgmental. we are all in this together and the sooner we set aside our petty differences and work together the better. you are all just pulling us down with this nonsense.

    • Peter

      brett, a better acronym is WDJD – What DID Jesus Do?
      Let’s see, he healed a lot of people, He fed a lot of people spiritually and physically, He taught a lot of people some pretty tough lessons.
      He died for us all on a cruel cross and rose again after 3 days to seal our salvation.
      What did He NOT do?
      He did NOT marry homosexuals, nor did he even deem them worthy (apart from their being human) of mention, inclusion or exclusion.
      Most folks I know define themselves in many different ways, husband, father, job, interests.
      None apart from the homosexuals I know, define themselves almost entirely by their sexuality.
      What a sad existence it must be if all you have in your life is your sexuality?

      • Peter

        …one other thing brett, Jesus did NOT teach tolerance – ever!
        Jesus did not tolerate many things, but only those things that were sinful, such as when He overturned the money-changers’ tables in the temple and drove them out.
        He did not tolerate religious hypocrisy.
        He did not tolerate sin in any form, but He loved all people, regardless of how much sin was in their lives.
        There is a big difference between that and what you clearly mean by ‘tolerance’.

  • brett

    i don’t know how to feel over the lack of reaction to the very hard truth from my jefferson quotes, or the very possibility that they were censored.

  • brett

    i’m leaning toward censored. either that or its hard to face the truth.

    • Peter

      brett, there has been no censorship.
      I think it’s quite twisted ‘logic’ to relate freedom of or from religion in the Constitution, to the provision of special protections for homosexuals which go far and above those afforded to other citizens, because that is exactly what the militant homosexual lobby wants and has partially achieved through domination of a mostly compliant and sensation-seeking media.
      The militant homosexual lobby labels anyone who simply disagrees with them as being a bigot or full of hate.
      Utterly untrue.
      I do not agree with same sex marriage.
      That does not mean I hate homosexuals.
      Quite the opposite in fact.
      I have worked in the entertainment industry for over 40 years, and have worked closely and socialized with more homosexuals than some folks have had hot dinners.
      I have counted many among my friends, and have found them almost universally to be wonderful, creative and enthusiastic people who make huge contributions to the artistic life of their community.
      For you or anyone to infer that I hate any of my friends or colleagues is, frankly, obnoxious in the extreme.
      I disagree with their lifestyle choice, but I love them as people, artists and creative souls.
      Have you not heard of ‘Live and let live’?
      I am also a Christian who believes that Jesus Christ died for my sin and that of all humanity.
      I love my homosexual friends, but do not condone their homosexuality.
      I covet their souls for Jesus, because He says in His word that His desire is that “none should perish”, but come to a saving knowledge of His grace and sacrifice for them.
      Do I bible-bash them? No.
      I strive (not always successfully because I too am human) to be a living example of the love of Jesus Christ to all I come in contact with.
      If you class that as bigotry or hatred, go for it, but if you do, your twisted ‘logic’ is patently obvious.
      I trust and hope you will see that not everyone is out to hate homosexuals.

  • RealitySux

    Well I don’t know.. I personally saw little coverage of the “kiss-in” and about the same with the appreciation day.. Guess I wasn’t paying much attention but the media should wake up and stop being selective in what they cover.. It’s like the owners are saying. “They’ll read what I deem important and lump it”.. We need more publishing advocates, not money grubbing, political sensationalists. The way it’s going I don’t trust any of them.. They report on what interests them, fail to ask pertinent questions and continually have fixations on Angelina Jolie’s ass and Beibermania.
