    [YOUTUBE="LUmoTOujJ7Q"]Antoine Dodson's Thoughts on Chick-Fil-A Situation[/YOUTUBE]

    Edit: Oh damn, I didn't read the whole thread so I didn't realize this was posted already. But now that I've been informed, I still believe that you all deserve to be reminded of this video.

    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    It still doesn't address the points of (1) the money going to particular causes and (2) the utter disrespect in the guy's comments that set all this off and (3) the fact that if one substituted in the word "black" instead of "gay" into the comments and political policies being promoted, this guy (as a black man) might have a different view of things, but whatever. I'm tired of hearing about a sandwich being the face of the gay-marriage thing in the USA, that's all this is -- a lot of people are pissed on either side about same-sex marriage, and this is just kind of a trigger for all that resentment. There's also an election season coming up, with candidates on completely opposite ends of the divide, so it's only gonna get hotter as the election season kicks off in the next month.

    Are you referring to Dodson's "take" on it all? Because if so, know that I only posted it because I think he's an idiot. A funny one, but an idiot nevertheless.

    Yeah. Added a #3 there a second ago -- basically, I think he'd change his logic if it were blacks instead of gays that were being singled out here, so it's crap to me. But I'm kinda burned out on Chick-Fil-A debates...

    if you [generic You] support same-sex marriage, give money to organizations that support same-sex marriage and help out with same-sex causes, instead of wasting so much energy trying to shut down Chick-Fil-A.

    I think the whole thing exposes who the thought police or would be thought police really are.

    The point being? My hometown's most famous residents were well-known mass murderers, and I'd rather it not be famous for anything than some shitty people.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    Yeah, agreed. My town even has some decent famous people that hail from it, but overall its reputation for racial tension overrides everything else.
