We don’t need to worry about the government taking away our rights. We’re doing that just fine on our own.
Brad Pitt’s mother was threatened with her life because of her anti gay-marriage and anti-Obama letter. She received death threats because of her opinion.
Roseanne wished cancer on all people who eat Chick-fil-A. Cancer isn’t funny! It’s not something to wish on anyone whether you are joking or not. If you’re joking, you’re a moron. If you’re serious, you’re the essence of evil.
With death threats on people who believe differently than yourselves, you are creating a system of intolerance. The very intolerance you yourself say you won’t tolerate.
Roseanne and the people who threatened Brad Pitt’s mother need to be brought up on charges of assault. A lesson in law, a death threat is a verbal assault.
Once charges have been filed and those morons are put in their place, we need to bring the debate down a notch. I’d rather we return to the days when people guilted other people into believing what they believe than to see death threats go unchecked in public debate. By supporting anti-gay organizations, Chick-fil-A has cast its vote against gay marriage. They have practiced their right to speak as they wish. Don’t eat there if you disagree!
I like Henson’s resolve to donate the payment they received from Chick-fil-A to GLAAD, Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Then, they severed partnership all together with Chick-fil-A. That’s hysterical! That’s how you get the goat!
I have family and friends who are gay and I would hate to see them bullied for who they are and what they believe. They have the same rights I have to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The separation of Church and State was instituted for issues such as this and it’s time for America to realize that anti-gay laws do not make sense in a free country where the Church has been removed from dictating law. The Church has a right to influence public debate, but not to dictate the laws that we as a country will follow.
But, the day you attempt to eradicate freedom of speech by striking fear in people who don’t believe as you, that’s when you become the very thing you hate yourself. I will make my stand against tyranny before I take any other. Regardless if I am for gay marriage or not, I won’t stand idly by and watch as a bunch of bullies run rampant all over my Constitution because they think they have the right.
