Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas decided to come out publicly on Thursday in support of Chick-fil-A on his Facebook page:
I stand with Chick-fil-A.
Chick-fil-A is privately owned by the Cathy family. The company president, Dan Cathy, drew the wrath of gay rights advocates and supporters when he made recent statements that some have alleged are anti-gay.
Cathy told Baptist Press that the company was unapologetically in favor of traditional marriage.
"Guilty as charged," he said. "We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that."
In a separate interview on the Ken Coleman Show -- Cathy suggested that the nation could face God's wrath over the redefinition of marriage.
"I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'" Cathy said. "I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we would have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is all about."
Facebook wasn't kind:
Lady Gaga will make her acting debut in Machete Kills from Robert Rodriguez.
Tweeted Rodriguez: "I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!"
Tweeted Gaga today: "Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane."
The insanity also stars Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen.
Writes Indiewire: "Michelle Rodriguez, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, Jessica Alba and of course, Danny Trejo also feature in the movie that will find Machete tracking down an arms dealer with a nefarious plan to launch a deadly missile."
No release date has been set.
BusinessWeek offers the details:
To Wall Street, at least, Facebook (FB) just belly-flopped its first earnings report as a public company. The social network reported second-quarter revenues of $1.18 billion, up 32 percent from the same quarter last year, narrowly beating analyst estimates.
But marketing and sales expenses quadrupled to $392 million, share-based compensation swelled, and margins fell from 53 percent a year earlier to 43 percent. Wall Street hated a lot of that, pummeling an already bruised stock. At one point during after-hours trading, the stock hit $23.75, an all-time low.
Facebook's initial public offering price was $38/share back in May, when it first hit the markets. It closed today down $2.50 at $26.84.
Alain Beret and his partner Jim recently put in a $1 million offer on a Worcester, Massachusetts, home and land being sold by the local Catholic Diocese. They hoped to renovate the historic location and then rent it out for weddings and other memorable occasions.
Things seemed all well and good until, seemingly out of the blue, the Diocese canceled the sale. Later, while reviewing the paper work, Beret noticed an emailed accidentally forwarded by Monsignor Thomas Sullivan that ordered the realtor to put the kibosh on the sale lest the venue be used for same-sex marriages.
"Because of the potentiality of gay marriages there….we are not interested in going forward with these buyers," reads the memo obstained by CBS Boston. "I think they’re shaky anyway. So, just tell them that we will not accept their revised plan and the Diocese is making new plans for the property. You find the language."
Though the church rejected another, higher offer made by Beret, a lawyer, he says he will continue his efforts, "I have lived almost 60 years quietly in the mainstream, and I would like to continue that, but I will not do that at the expense of my dignity." He also may file a lawsuit.
"This is a state centered transaction, this is not a Church transaction, this is not a theological discussion, it’s nothing more than that. I believe the Church has engaged in an activity that may be illegal in Massachusetts," he said.
