    Apparently the anti Same-Sex marriage views of Chick-fil-A's president Dan Cathy were outed this week and it's causing a $#!+ storm all over he Interwebz. Feel free to read the article linked and share your reaction here. I'm surprised that people are going "ZOMG" considering this company parades around their "Christian beliefs". Personally, while I don't believe in any religion I'm torn between my spicy chicken sandwiches and my values of non discrimination amongst many other humanistic values.​

    I've gotten over the whole "this is a gaming website, this isn't gaming news!" mentality a while ago when I realized there was just no fighting it.

    But this is overboard.

    *giggle* Mmmmm! Spicy chicken sandwiches with pepper jack cheese! :yaywii: But seriously, the guys personal beliefs should just stay that, personal. It's one thing to apply the general "Christian" philosophy to your stores but, that company until this controversy, had a nice middle ground. Sure they played Christian music but they had nice food so even if you didn't care about the music you could just go in, get food and go out. THIS situation is going to be damaging for a while and Cathy should have just kept his mouth shut. BAD business decision!

    Never heard of Chick-fil-A.
    Also meh, at this point, this isn't news anymore.
    Another old Christian dude against gay marriage? Not really news anymore.
    Now an old Christian dude in favor gay marriage, that would be more interesting news in my options.

    Well this is a progressive nation, my guess is these idiots will crack soon enough. The anti-gay Christians sure do love cherry picking what to follow in their precious bible. Lord forbid you get laid, but don't worry about mixing fabrics/eating shellfish/etc. It just makes sense. I mean, you guys remember when God came down with his shrimp cocktail and proclaimed "that hat, those shoes, FAAABULOUS."

    Chic-fil-a is a christian company, they also close on Sunday for that exact reason. Does this really surprise anyone?
    I may not agree with it but they can think what they want, in the end they still make some good chicken nuggets.

    Also for people who don't know chic-fil-a its a fast food restaurant, think mcdonalds but a bit more expensive and a bit higher quality, oh and everything is chicken based.

    I don't think business is their #1 concern, spreading the Word is...

    If it bugs people, they don't have to eat there.

    There is no such thing as "marriage" in nature - it's a social construct humans made up to stick with one sexual partner. Homosexuality on the other hand occurs among humans and other animals alike. Your argument is flawed.

    Nobody's talking about raising children etc. - this is about marriage, a legalized relationship between humans. It's mostly for tax reasons, bragging rights and the wonderful ceremony celebrating love between two people, of course.

    On a rather off topic note, I have heard of Chick-fil-A many times and always wanted to try it sometime. Back on topic, I don't really think his opinion is any more important than anyone else's, regardless of whether I agree with it or not.

    This isn't the game section. There is a separate news section of gaming news.

    Personally I don't see what's wrong with what he said (well, from what I read on the source at least), all he said was that he supported the traditional family, I see no wrong with that.
    Everyone is entitled to different opinions, and I find this hate towards Christianity just because of what people choose in their life, rather stupid. Also, what he said could be equally offensive to people that nowadays don't value marriage or people that have been divorced. Being entitled to one opinion doesn't define hate, for example, I'm left handed and I openly say that I prefer left hands over the right ones, does that mean I hate right handed people? It doesn't. z.z

    1. I think they taste pretty good. I care about their food, not their beliefs. Also long as the treating people far and not denying people, it should be fine.

    2. I'm not sure if SSM is or isn't a sin (tho you are making it seem like you never sin in your life),but even if there was marriage in
    nature, there are gay animals so...

    Somehow sex change isn't against nature? :unsure: Also buying a private island is so easy to do, let me go buy one right now.
