    EDIT: I'll just end this here. No need to start a volatile debate in here. This is the hangout. This is supposed to be a section of fun and joy.. and relationship threads.

    I support gay marriage.

    I don't consider someone a biggot for being against gay marriage.

    Then why do you always allude to it being a "preference"; in order to claim something as truth it must be proven. In that case you're a fool too.

    I think government should get out of marriage business. A government does not make a person married or not married. I use the word marriage for a man and a woman, but realize that there are gay couples as well. Under the law, there should be no benefit or repercussion for being heterosexual couple, homosexual couple, or just two people hangings out in a platonic relationship.

    I think it is - very close to Chick-Fil-A, maybe better. I live in TN and do not know of raising canes.

    The mayor is being intolerant of bigots. If someone believes something due to religion, it doesn't make them any less of a bigot

    Chik-fil-a does not refuse business to anyone based on whether or not they are gay. It is their right to donate money to anti-gay groups.

    The mayor of any city should not have the authority or inclination to prevent a business from opening a location on their city based on such things. Chik-fil-a should be allowed to open a location in Boston without any interference or impediments from the mayor based on his disagreement with their beliefs.

    The mayor of Boston is either an idiot, an ass, or a cunning politician.

    If you look at it that way, why is one preference protected and others are not?

    Yes. Near 1960 kinda out towards Cypress way. Not sure if it was just this particular store, but they also happened to be playing Christian music when I went.

    Or maybe just doing the right thing. I bet you were rooting for George Wallace back in the day.
