    We do our community and the millions of kids who are actually bullied every year a disservice by calling this bullying. Agree with them or not, the wingnuts had every bit as much right to be there as the protesters did. And frankly, the “debate” was pretty civilized.

    It’s hard for our side to take the moral high ground re: rightwing exaggerations when we do it ourselves.

    So, he claims to have “fought for your freedom” but doesn’t want you to use it?

    Also, does he realize that gay people don’t have equal rights?

    Idiotic.

    I agree that this is not bullying.

    That said, “I fought for your freedom…and now I’m paying people to take that freedom away.” Way to render your brave sacrifice pointless.

    These protests would have been more effective if they had been “hug-ins”. Some straights still have problems with men kissing men on the lips or women kissing women on the lips.

    A hug is affectionate, passionate, tender, and makes a better statement for marriage equality.

    I’m sure everyone will disagree.

    Yeah, does not seem like bullying in my opinion.

    Freedom of speech means the freedom to disagree. That’s the beauty of our system.

    Totally awesome how everyone kept their composure and that it did not have a bad outcome.

    That mofo who thinks he could have died in war while protecting our freedom, should better have died. How could he talk that way with a women least some elderly women. Is that what his so called sanctioned family taught him? No true man would ever do that. He’s a shame. I wish I was there and then the next thing he had probably learnt would have been his love for sucking cocks

    @JAMAL49 No, I definitely agree with you on this. (In fact your comments have always been one of the most sensible ones) And it would have been even better if some of these protesters would have hugged these douchebags when they were ranting about ‘love’ and had shown some brotherly love’.

    there was a time when interracial kissing “upset the masses”

    didn’t mean that interracial couples should refrain from kissing in public, in fact it meant more should

    something is only shocking if you’ve never seen it before. PDA is, amazingly, an important part of The Movement.

    I CERTAINLY WOULD ACCEPT SOME SANDWICHES FROM THESE KINDLY AND STUDLY ARC MEN. THIS KIND OF RHETORIC IS NOT GOING TO GET US ANYWHERE. “THEY” ARE ALWAYS EVIL, “THEY” ARE ALWAYS “THUGS.” LET BOTH SIDES BURY THE HATCHET AND COME TOGETHER IN THE NAME OF “LOVE” AND MOST CERTAINLY IN THE NAME OF “CHICKEN”!

    I found it odd that one of the protesters that refused the Chick-Fil-A food indicated that they ate at In-N-Out Burger earlier… I personally boycott In-N-Out because they print Bible citations on all of their printed paper products (the easiest one to find is John 3:16 on the bottom of the drink cups).

    I’m not saying that In-N-Out supports anti-gay organizations (I don’t know that and they are quiet on it, unlike Mr. Cathy), but I don’t like any business that infuses religion into their business. I also find it odd, that their naming convention is quite similar (bad grammar, hyphens and all).

    The headline says military bullie(s)and the story mentions ONE alleged military veteran who taunted gay demonstrators. Are you serious about this? Change the headline to : One military veteran (ME) who posts on Towleroad opposes the bigotry of the Cathy family.

    There’s really no reason to believe that the hater herein who claimed to have fought in the military for the LGBT protesters’ right to protest ever served a day in uniform. Then again, there is a reason the military system of justice maintains brigs for the thugs who think the uniform affords certain dishonorable citizens the right to break the law and dishonor service to our USA.

  14. Derek says

    what would have made this event better is for all the frustrated gays in here would get up and do something besides bit*****

    but stonewall happened why? they fems, drag queens, leather daddies..the unwanted even by some gays…so what can we expect now when we should be doing something more…hmmm???

    One of the two Amercian River college thugs, the taller one with the sunglasses, is notorious anti-gay activist Luke Otterstad. He’s of the Church of the Divide and was a student at American River College at the time of the student council’s support of Proposition 8 (watch his perfidious little smile when one of the protestors confronts him with the student council vote on Prop 8). He has been holding anti-gay protests for over nearly ten years. That’s the kind of “love” he and his buddies want to offer to the LGBT community.

    Late in the game, but I gotta clarify. ARC does not support Prop 8. At all. These men took over our student council to pass hateful, anti-gay resolutions. It’s since been reversed, and we now have a bigot-free council. For now.
