Pretty obvious that this thread generated from the chick-fil-a news, which stems from a single comment stated by the CEO who has a very strict policy discriminating against gays in his company, he hires gay people, and has a tolerance program in his workplace regarding that, treats all of his employees very well, with benifits. If you are somehow inturpeting him as not being a moral person, and the gay activists certainly are saying this, it is incorrect. As a religous person of Faith, he closes Chick fil a on Sundays, which I didn;t know, honoring the Sabeth. You show me any other fast food place that does this, most are open 24/7 365 days a year.
How do you defend an elected Mayor, Rham Emmanual, for openly boycotting Chick-fil-a and declaring they will not allow other outlets to be built in Chicago? In a time when good jobs are hard to find, what is the morality of stopping the growth of a good place to work, while on the other end of town, they would allow stripclubs, porn shops, and stores selling drug use products? Not only is his moral compass broken, he should be supporting the commerce in his city, and jobs, as his first prioriety.
How do you defend the gay rights groups for waging protests that only hurt people with a job and good benifits, in a place where moral standards are up held? Next step today is a "gay kiss in" protest and making a spectical of themselves to proove what point? They will proove, that our laws only protect their rights, to do that in the United States of America. And while they enjoy those freedoms, they persecute the religious rights of one person for a his believe, and punish thousands of workers in the process. Like the point I made to you about Dawkins and not attacking Muslims like he does Christians, Christians are not the only religion who believes these things. Dawkins never walked the streets of Saudi Arabia with his message, he does it from a save haven, the United States and free speech. Nor would these gay rights protesters, stage a "kiss in" in any middle eastern country, not to even mention a gay rights assembly. The United States, and a predominately Christian/Judeo society(based on these ancient books) has every law in place protecting the rights of gays, AND OTHER MINORIETIES, every place you turn. It was not a Congress or Surpreme Court of Atheists who passed all these laws. So how you can critisize a society for doing this, for "deriving morals from a book written by primitive humans to be absurd", is what is ridiculous. Now compare all of this to what would happen in any middle eastern Muslim nation. Their laws are passed by the most fundementalist of Islamic beliefs, and are so barbaric and beyond belief, its hard to believe it is 2012.
Trying to make your point against Christian belief in this is ludicras, when you consider our laws put in place by the very Christian/Judeo base regarding the gays freedom to protest. The response was not a line of Christians even ranting about homosexuality in the appreciation day, the overwhelming response was the CEO's freedom of speech, for which the gays were persecuting him for. Who's moral compass is way off the mark, now being escalated into the kiss in protest?
I'm not even getting into your other questions, but we do not live in 4000BC, and our laws reflect that. I go to probably one of the best Jewish deli's around here, and they serve everything from bacon, ham, and clam chowder. Red lobsters are all over the nation selling forbidden bottom feeders too. All minorieties, including gays, are given every freedom, that everyone else has, and the laws bend over backwards to do that. I think the free world, and the USA, Christian/Judeo beliefs have done this. You can not make this claim in Nations that are other than these values, like Muslim countries, Buddist and Hindu counties.
