I thought it could not get any better and this morning it did.

Based on his behavior and level of maturity, I figured the guy was a busboy at Noodles or something. Turns out he was the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of a medical devices company.

Key word there is "was". He was either fired or asked to resign this morning.

The lesson here is that sometimes when you speak truth to power, power speaks back.

And now he is taking it to the street. Pounding the pavement looking for a job. I suspect that nobody in their right mind will ever hire such a clown. The Internet never forgets. That video will still be around 20 years from now.

Busboy at Noodles may be a position for him to aspire to.

By the way, he was very clear in the video that he is "100% heterosexual" and "not a gay in his body". So apparently he has a bit of a problem with homophobia as well.

So how is this fight with Chick-Fil-A going for you all?

Way to paint such a broad brush. I guess those "Christians" who have blown up abortion clinics are all good in your book. But you wouldn't label "all" Christians this way, would you?


My oh my, Stebben (and others). Shooting fish in a barrel is sporting compared to this. At least the fish have a chance.

You are making my point exactly. It is not OK to criticize Muslims with a broad brush. Most are fine peaceable people.There are dangerous Muslims but they are a small minority. Still, that small minority is likely to come to your house, chop off your head and set you on fire (or worse!) if they think you have disrespected Islam or the Prophet.

The Mayor of Boston participated in the opening of a mosque earlier this year whose Imam has called for death to gays. Twinkletoes welcomed Luis Farrakhan to Chicago on about the same day he started this megillah about Chick-Fil-A. The Farrakhan who has called for death to gays. That Farrakhan.

And nobody here says boo.

Perhaps the memory of Salmon Rushdie, who still has to go around under constant threat of violent death, is on your minds.

Yet you seem to have no problem with others criticizing Christians with the same broad brush and with far less reason.

Sleep well. As I said, the worst Christians will do is wish you a nice day and pray for you. You are safe mocking us. We forgive you, Christ forgives you.

Let's do a little test of guts here:

Louis Farrakhan Slams Obama's Sanction of Gay Marriage, Calls Homosexuality 'Sin'

By Nicola Menzie , Christian Post Reporter

May 30, 2012|12:25 pm

Minister Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader who has previously spoken about President Barack Obama in glowing terms, recently rebuked the president's confessed support for same-sex marriage saying he has "sanctioned what the Scriptures forbid."

"Our president just agreed to same-sex marriage," Farrakhan said during a May 27 gathering at the California Convention Center in San Diego. He was referring to Obama's May 9 endorsement of such unions during an interview with ABC News.

The Nation of Islam leader spoke while holding up a May 21 copy of Newsweek magazine with a cover image of President Obama, who is a Christian, with a rainbow halo and the caption "The First Gay President."

"He's the first president that sanctioned what the Scriptures forbid," Farrakhan, 79, said in a grave tone to an audience of African-Americans.

Or this:

OK, Mr. Mayor. But when you gave all that land to the ISB at a song, here’s what imam al-Qaradawi was teaching:

“[A homosexual should be given] the same punishment as any sexual pervert  . . . Some say we should throw them from a high place, like God did with the people of Sodom. Some say we should burn them.”

According to the Anti-Defamation League, “In 2003 Qaradawi stated on IslamOnline that the punishment of homosexuality is the death penalty.”

In the end, says the anti-Islamist organization MEMRI, al-Qaradawi came down on the side of stoning.

So who will be the first here to criticize either of the above?

As soon as you criticize Tommy Thompson for having an event with Ted Nugent.

It's not wrong until the other side admits something else is wrong. Quid pro quo.

C'mon boys, come clean. First one to denounce Nugent or Farrakhan gets my respect.

Fish in a barrel.

OK, here goes:

I think Tommy Thompson was wrong to hold an event with Ted Nugent. I didn't care for Nugent's music in the 70's and it has not aged well since. He should have gotten someone better. Nugent is a horrible musician.

That OK? Back to you. I now await your promised criticism of Muslim calls for death to gays.

How did Ted Nugent get brought into this discussion? Talk about off topic.

I've always thought of Ted Nugent as pretty liberal and his political, if not musical, ideas and mine pretty much intersect. I've been a fan for 20-25 years.

I know very little about Thompson and less about his politics. The little I do know always left me with the impression that he was just one more careerist DC establishment politician. As such, I would like to see him go away and seek honest employment.

I wonder why Nugent is supporting him? Perhaps I need to take a closer look at Thompson. Perhaps he is better than I had thought. Perhaps he does have some liberal tendencies. If the Nuge likes him, perhaps he has some redeeming qualities.

OTOH, if Nugent is just doing it as a gig for money, I am a bit disappointed but the man does have to make a living.

I guess that is a start. Not much of one but it is something.

OTOH, I would note that while you are happy to criticize CFA, you are too gutless to actually say anything about Muslim leaders calling for death to gays.

Pretty much what I expected from you.

Gutless. Even hiding behind an alias.

tough words from a punk hiding in PR.

I was mocking you, John Henry. It's unfortunate you don't understand the difference between Chick-fil-A and Islam. Maybe you do understand, but you march on anyway, knowing that this false equivalency is your only hope. Either way, your words are empty.

There are crazies on both sides.

That said, I don't like Farrakhan and I think the way that he preaches is destructive. Not all Muslims want to kill gays just as all Christians do not as well. Those that do are assholes. These people have a right, although, to preach their dislike for them along with the owner of any establishment. When you do that, there may be consequences good or bad.

Ted Nugent is a moron who says what he says because he's a media whore. Why anyone gives him a podium is beyond me.

I just burned my Nation of Islam card, and my Chik-fil-A card punch.
Damn, I never got to taste that new "Gay-hatin' Cordon Bleu" sandwich I read about.

I'm not sure why this is missed, but Farrakhan is not a Muslim. The Nation of Islam is not Muslim.
