For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17.
God forgave all our sins even though we killed his perfect son. So if He can forgive us for that how can we NOT forgive others for whatever they have done to us? I can somewhat understand what the man who lost his family is going through. My nephew (Mick Poynter) was killed by a drunk driver on the night of 11/11/11 along with two of his friends. I have forgiven the girl that took his life, but many in my family are bitter. I can see what the bitterness has done to their lives and I want to help them understand that the bitterness is dragging them down. They have got to learn to forgive the drunk driver in order for them to heal their own heart.

If the people supporting Chick-Fil-A followed the people at Starbucks with a protest of their own you might see the real difference in the numbers that really support traditional marriage.
I suggest that the traditional marriage supporters pick a day and show up at Starbucks to order just a small cup of drip coffee. That way you could have real data showing how people in this country REALLY feel about supporting traditional marriage. I’m thinking Starbucks may then realize they may want to rethink their stance.
I don't think it would be a shocking revelation for Starbucks or anyone in this country to find out how many imbeciles live here. There's a lot of them. We're aware.
Typical Liberal .. You lost miserabley and everyone else is an imbecile.
Your spelling of the word 'miserably' doesn't exactly hammer down the point you're trying to make.
Neither does your ad hominem argument separate you from imbeciles.
I'll be meeting my spouse at Wendy's later this afternoon and buying a cup of coffee there. Normally, I don't go out to buy coffee, I make it at home. I don't like Starbucks simply because I drink coffee black with no sugar. Their coffee is a dark roast with a very bitter aftertaste. To compensate for that, they load the things up with calories via the syrups, milk and whipped cream.
So, I'm making a point of it to go out and buy a coffee elsewhere. Dunkin' Donuts would have been my first choice, but there isn't one between the two locations where my spouse and I are.
Starbucks will never rethink their diva, snotty, "we drink better coffee than you" stuck up stance.
While I am "snottier" about my coffee than any drinker of Starbuck's swill (because I make my own coffee. one cup at a time, using only freshly ground Sumatra coffee, in my very expensive Swiss-made coffee machine), this is all beside the point. The problem is the unreasonable demands of homosexuals in demanding all of society change just to accommodate the sexual fetishes of a micro-minority who wish to wed without making the necessary changes to their anatomy. In this day and age, there is nothing preventing non-related, consenting adults from marrying -- except for their homosexual fetishes. Any homosexual in love can choose to have sexual reassignment surgery. Chastity Bono can now marry another woman because Chastity is now Chaz Bono. Gays are not prevented from doing the same -- except for their love of their fetishes. Obviously, gays love their sexual fetishes more than they love their partner, whom they allegedly "wish" to marry. Marriage has never been the issue, the issue has always been about forcing society into accepting homosexual fetishes, like "tea-bagging," as "normal" behavior, instead of an aberration.

@BruceP.: Lets use your logic.. So if someone supports a woman’s right to choose that doesn’t make them a murderer, but if they donate to organizations like Planned Parenthood who do commit murder then the person that donates to Planned Parenthood is a murderer. Okay. Got it. Thanks for clearing that up.

It is time for Conservative and Christian parents to get their children OUT of public schools. Their is NO WAY they could educate their children any worse than the education they are getting in public schools. As far as the lack of interaction with other kids that people always talk about as being a problem, I say after seeing how the kids are turning out today, it is more of a benefit to have less interaction.

So…What exactly was Clown (I mean Carney) actually angry about? Is he complaining about them getting something wrong? If so he should come forward with EVIDENCE showing what is factually inaccurate. No. He comes forward because it makes his boss look bad. The problem with that is no one has to TRY to make his boss look bad. He does that all by himself.

Remember: “Engage brain before putting mouth in gear”. I don’t know of any normal person that has a problem with the union “members”. The union “Leadership” who spout off about “social justice” or continue to promote class warfare, I know many that have a problem with them.

Didn’t the House read the Constitution at the start of the year? Did anyone pay attention? This is so obviously un-constitutional they should be ashamed.
