  2. Death to Chick-Fil-A. Also, pull a 'Lysistrata' on those traitorous fools.

  4. Chick-Fil-A is a terrorist organization.

  5. 75% of LGBT people are boycotting CFA according to polling. These queers are a minority. Probably conservagays.

  6. Does Chick-Fil-A's new 'gays love it too!' PR push in both the NY Post and USA Today mean that the public perception of them is now negative? Now that's something truly delicious.

  7. The New York Post found three queer people who eat at Chic-fil-a and who also need to move their lips when reading.

    I can think of lots of reasons to not join a boycott that aren't stupid. None of which were presented in that article.

  9. What does mama Oprah say, "you know better, you do better." These Chik Fil A's don't want to know better.

    Mama O also says, "when someone shows themselves to you, believe them." I believe these fools and think they are just that... fools.

    Here's some money so you can fund my own discrimination. Idiots.

  10. Oprah is not my "mama". Shut the TV off and think for yourself. If you want to boycott a business, so be it; but don't argue with a bit in your mouth.

  11. "gays who proudly eat at Chick-fil-A "

    It's no surprise that a public duped into believing that free trade and globalization are actually good things, despite the continuing hollowing out of North America, would also contain some stupidly self-destructive gay people too.

  12. The Post is such a sad, strange paper. This line was just one of many that stunned me. "For many members of the LGBT community, the first time they came out, it was to tell the world they were gay. The second time, it was to tell the world they love Chick-fil-A." WTF??

    @HRM: it makes sense that the Morrissey picture is old. As the blurb states, the planned film is about his life before the Smiths. (Also, he was a lot cuter then.) But "a love letter to...the dark satanic mills of Manchester"? Umm, no thanks.

  13. Little boy, for the past forty three years, I have put my ass on the line so that you could do what you want with yours. When you make a stupid comment about the gay mafia, you are not merely showing a vapid intelligence, but a lack of courtesy and gratitude.

    By all means, enjoy your chicken sandwich. Give your money to the people who claim that your freedom to live your life as you see fit will bring the wrath of god down onto millions of innocent people. Maybe they have convinced you that when they say this, they love you. You could be that stupid.

    but please. Have the courtesy not to glorify it with inanities when you side with the people who would just as soon see you and your kind in jail.

  15. Say what you want about the NY post but you armchair critics on Tlrd live in your own GD world if this is a surprise to you!

    You think Andy Cohen is an anomaly?? Making millions for bigoted nasty women who hate gay men and only promotes minstrels of gay men?

  16. People like Josh Hune and others who would rather shovel grease into their stomachs and are happy with their $$$ being donated to extreme right-wing, anti-gay groups are disgusting human beings. Chick-fil-A is disturbing, and gays who openly flaunt their love for that salt and grease mash-up are idiots.
