    I see a politician capitalizing on a popular story.

    I never heard of these Chick-fil-A people but they sound alright, I agree with their views about the arrogance of the generation who supports homosexuality.

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I love Five Guys. In-N-Out might be the most overrated burger I've ever had.

    never had in-n-out, but the pictures didn't look too hot. Five Guys is pretty awesome, though. I like it better than chick-Fil-a.

    So serious question, then (since you volunteered the info): What exactly do you find arrogant about it?

    Yeah, he was a little over the top, at the least.

    That's kind of one of the things. The economy is more interconnected, so chances are we are supporting something we don't approve of (via providing profits) to some company out there. Which is why I think it's easier just doing it as a more personal decisions rather than as some rationalized, across the board moral decision about "not supporting investments in a particular cause."

    if taken to the extreme of never supporting anything you disapprove of, well, you might as well just lock yourself naked into a room... or actually go out into the woods since you can't really justify owning property either. (Kind of like the ones who say they don't support the killing of animals but still benefit in some way from their demise -- foods, clothes, makeup, etc)

    Yeah, Target is owned by Mormons.

    I won't shop at Wal-Mart though because they've actually committed heinous actions that can be pointed to.

    I'm guessing Chick-Fil-A is simply owned by very conservative envangelical Christians. It's a Southern-based business, I'm quite familiar with it, and I do love their chicken sandwich with extra pickles.

    Actually I think In-n-Out is also owned by Mormons. I think they have good food.

    That its possible to overturn the organically developed norms and social institutions of generations by legislating everyones opinions and what its permissable to think and say.

    Hope that's plain and simple enough. Its as plain and simple as that.
