    ok ya forgot about the headline. You want to know what is so odd about these boycots? Homo advocacy tried this before with Chick-fil-a and the sales increased. Gays make up more than two to three percent of the adult population and most of them wont even know about this boycot or do they care. Silliness. Then there will be tons of ppl like me who will go eat there just to prove its a worthy business and in spite of H.A.

      What a mean and spiteful comment. Is there anyone that comments on this website that actually understands what Christ taught us?

      • Cris

        Sure – Paul wrote it in Chapter 1 of his letter to the Romans

    OOPS ignore that previous one. What I meant to say was can you do a whole post only on that verses being part of a group. I saw nothing of it in the mainstream media.

    As I was following up on some of your headlines I found a hidden one. Two of the workers at Goswell’s abrtion mill got a plea deal. Maybe you can look into it and broadcast it since the mainstream media doesn’t seem up to it.

    Joshua, can you change the post to homosexual activist boycotting chick-fil-a? NOT all ‘gays’ support the corrupt homo agenda and i am very fond of the place. Thanks.

    • Joshua Mercer

      Done. (I have to be sensitive to the length of the headline).

    Good for the gays. I certainly wouldn’t eat at a Chik-fil-a if they supported protestant organizations that refused to allow Catholics to attend their events. I can see why gay people are outraged that Chick-fil-a supports organizations that refuse to allow gay people on their property. Thanks for enlightening me on this subject. The more I think about it, the more I think I’ll join in the boycott!

      Well Amy, Chick-fil-a is my FAVORITE fast food place because they have GREAT food and extremely POLITE employees and WONDERFUL customer service. It is just a bonus that they support traditional marriage and families. I stop any time I am near one and with a family of six I think we can make up for your lack of support.
