I may go there for dinner.  I am sorry that the homophobe makes such damn fine sandwich.  For some it might create some dissonance but not me.  I can not like his views but enjoy eating there.

Yep, pretty much sums up the tolerant crowd.

It doesn't"sum anyone up" but it's very common.

While we are (sort of ) on the topic of Chick Fil A, there is this.
http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/09/11/chick-fil-a-banned-from-ventura-high-school-campus-over-stand-on-gay-marriage/







VENTURA (CBSLA.com) — A Ventura County high school principal has barred a booster club from selling a popular fast-food sandwich on campus because of the chain’s position on gay marriage.
Ventura High School Principal Val Wyatt told the Ventura County Star that the football booster club could not sell Chick-fil-A sandwiches at Wednesday’s back-to-school night because the restaurant’s beliefs could offend some students and their parents.
“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus,” Wyatt told the newspaper.
Every principal has the discretion to invite community groups or businesses onto their campuses.
“We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus and all of our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission,” Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga said.
The chain’s now deceased owner, S. Truett Cathy, is known nationally for his conservative Christian beliefs, and his son and now-president of the company, Dan T. Cathy, has publicly expressed being against gay marriage.
The booster club expected to raise about $1,600 for the football team as the Ventura Chick-fil-A restaurant volunteered to donate the 200 meals. The Ventura location has already donated $21,000 to Ventura schools.
The club helps pay for everything from food to uniforms for the players and does not charge students to play football. Michelle Cisneros and her daughter say they were so outraged by the principal’s decision, they complained to the school officials.
“Everybody is embraced,” Cisneros said. “And Chick-fil-A should have been allowed to be here.”
But student Graham Wallace says he agrees with his principal’s decision.
“There are gay kids that go to our school, and for them it might be kind of weird,” he said.
Chick-fil-A is not being banned from donating, however. The football booster club will be selling tickets for meals, right off campus, when school is not in session.

It's funny that you come in and make such a statement when that point has already been covered.

But on top of that, maybe some of you should actually educate yourselves with a clearer definition of the term "tolerance" to begin with.

My saying "Good riddance" is not a case of me not showing tolerance. I didn't interfere with the existence of his opinions. I accepted that he had said opinions, but that doesn't mean that that by having a differing opinion is in any way a lack of tolerance.

That high school principal in Ventura Country is certainly not being tolerant by banning Chick-Fil-A.

We all should be as tolerant (and smart) as this guy.

http://www.bustle.com/articles/34018-provo-based-english-language-learning-center-fires-employee-for-homophone-misunderstanding?utm_source=FBTraffic&utm_medium=fijifrost&utm_campaign=CMfacebook

Here is the latest in American horror stories: in an ironic and totally ludicrous turn of events, Tim Torkildson, a social-media specialist for a private Provo-based English language learning center, was fired after a misunderstanding when his boss failed to comprehend the difference between “homophones” and “homosexuality.”


Torkildson wrote a blog on the school’s website explaining homophones — words that sound the same, but are spelled differently and mean different things (allowed vs. aloud, their vs. there, eight vs. ate.) He was immediately called into the office of his boss, Clarke Woodger, who expressed frustration that the school was now going to be “associated with homosexuality.” Sounds like Woodger is caught up in his own little mess of homophonia. 

Aside from the revolting notion that an employee could be fired for promoting a gay agenda, it is outrageous that Torkildson was not given a proper chance to explain himself… and that the head of a language institute doesn’t know what a homophone is. This case is a reminder to all of us that closed-minded lunatics still plague the educational institutions in this country. 

Let us all pray for the future of this language learning center, whose president clearly has a lot of learning to do himself.

A bit off topic, but these used to be called "homonyms" when I went to school. When did that change, or is it a case of different words for different countries/areas?

Back on topic, that is completely fucked but it's unfortunately probably not that unusual. I got stopped at the Dakotas/Manitoba border crossing back into Canada in September of 2012. I was informed by the two (Very) young border guards that they needed to search my vehicle because they suspected me of being a drug mule (travelling alone and staying in the U.S., entering via a different boarder crossing will get you tagged like that, according to them).
Anyhow, later in the search (about an hour in at this point, seriously), they asked for my PC. I gave it to them and punched in the password to open it up. They scanned my favourites list (they didn't connect the computer to the internet since we were outside by the car) and came across a website link I frequent called "The Anomalist".
The website deals with paranormal/sea monster/bigfoot sorts of things, and links various topics to articles of the day. These kids came back to me and said that I was fine and whatever I liked to do on "That anal site" was my own business.
They automatically associated "Anomalist" with a sex site.
I couldn't help but smirk and decided not to try and educate them. What was the point? But it was a clear illustration that words that sound the same can, in theory, get you into trouble if the people reading them don't understand their meaning but assume they know what it means anyway.

I laugh at it now but there is all sorts of WTF in that sort of setup, especially with the power the border guards have in letting you go through a crossing. If you get the wrong dolt on a bad day, that's the sort of shit that can get you labelled in a very bad way.

This is just further proof that there's no point in having security at all because the people they hire are just the stupidest fucks on the planet anyway.  Any real drug mule will clearly be able to outsmart them.  And I'd never show my Internet favorites to them without a warrant.  If that means I'd be stuck at the border for a week, so be it.  It's the principle of the thing and there'd be hell to pay.

I didn't get the impression that timtass was addressing the article that thunderbolt posted.

Still, there's a fine line in that situation between tolerance and directly funding a company that has directly funded (with those funds) intolerant hate groups.

Ya know...which is why so many boycotted them to begin with...
