    Safe stance but there are some exceptions, you still have to watch what you get as sides are usually the worst part. I do love me some culvers cheese curds though.

        In n Out actually isn't a franchise, all the locations are directly owned by the family that started the restaurant. That's partly why they are expanding so slowly out of the CA area.

          No he didn't. He simply stated that promoting a discriminatory act leads to bad things happening to people. Cars lined up around the corner to eat at CFL makes it a heck of a lot easier for asshats to beat/shun/ridicule with a clear conscious other human beings just because of who they chose to love. Are you denying this to be true? What exactly is the good that your "Democratic" opposition to SSM is bringing the World by the way?

            I know it's fast food, I wasn't aware of their ownership methods. I used to eat there quite a bit. They have an unwritten rule if you don't have money they'll feed you for free/

              More likely he just wanted to start a thread about it to see the fuss.


              ^ haha, that's exactly what I was thinking.


              And in response to all the other comments...someone said something like it the other day here, but a few years ago I also heard some Danish politician say that if we want freedom that we don't have the right to not be offended. And that works both ways.

              • why do people's concept of freedom so often involve denying it to others?
                As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                    • So now, at one of the CFA restaurants here, they're having a *kiss-in* I think I want to roll my eyes.

                          Why are you rolling your eyes?

                            I wonder how they would feel if non-hetero couples showed up...
                            Would they have them forcibly removed?

                              Not really rolling~ it's just that it's non-productive~ just turns it into a media circus. Maybe what bothers me about this demonstration is that it seems to have rallied the bigots.

                              I really liked that blog post~ makes you think, gives perspective. I've never been to a CFA~ certainly have no desire to go now.

                              AFAIK, this is a same sex kiss-in~

                                Seems sorta counter productive doesn't it?

                                I mean they do have to order something don't they? That is still a rule when you walk into a fast food joint these days isn't it?
