There are certain people who believe that Chick-fil-A has no right to back a conservative marriage stance and want to actually ban the restaurant. Isn’t it interesting that many liberals seem to feel that free speech should apply only to those people who agree with them about gay marriage?

Free thinkers don’t eat Chick-fil-A – not because we have anything against it, but because we refuse to stand in line for an hour to eat an average chicken sandwich.

Most people today avoid church like the plague because of people like the Chick-fil-A president. Too many churches have lost their way. They preach hate, are pro-war, pro-death penalty and political. Preach to a small audience and you get a small audience.

Hey, Chicago and Boston mayor: What’s the difference between saying you want to block Chick-fil-A or saying you want to block gays from living in your communities? Chick-fil-A never discriminated in serving gays, so what’s up with the double standard? Long live Chick-fil-A.

If you support traditional biblical marriage, which kind do you support? King David had at least eight wives that the Bible mentions, and God calls him “a man after my own heart.”

There is much controversy regarding the Second Amendment of our Constitution. My question is: When our forefathers added the Second Amendment to protect an individual’s right to bear arms, was there such a thing as an assault rifle? I don’t think so. Common sense has been lost.

The supposedly untouchable Social Security trust fund is filled with IOUs. Politicians have spent the surplus money collected over the past decades from Social Security payroll taxes. The result: funny money.

Presidents Clinton and Obama and Vice President Al Gore have all sent their kids to the prestigious and expensive Sidwell Friends School. They expect the average resident to go to the failed Washington, D.C., public schools. Such hypocrisy.

I predict the Republicans’ disdain for the democratic process will be laid bare for all to see when, at their convention, they refuse to nominate the primary process winner and certain general election loser, Mitt Romney. I bet Republicans wish they had asked to see Romney’s tax returns during the primaries.

Democrats do not like the Kansas voter photo-ID law for one simple reason: The new law stops ACORN vote fraud, making it harder for Democrats to get elected.

Why doesn’t real butter taste like it used to?
