I have an issue on my hands that I don't know how to handle with class. Let's dive in.
As many of you remember, Chick-Fil-A was a trending theme over the summer. Dan Cathy (the COO of Chick-Fil-A) made some questionable remarks about gay people and gay marriage. Many on the left reacted quite negatively and many on the right stood up for his First Amendment rights.
Fast forward three months. The issue is still brewing in the only place it can survive- academia. I'm on a college campus and there are some students within student government who want to sit down with the ownership of the local Chick-Fil-A and they have some demands. They want to present a letter to the ownership, and get them to sign it, that calls for Dan Cathy to apologize for his remarks, retract his remarks, and promise to stop funding anti-gay "hate groups" (I'm not saying Chick-Fil-A is completely innocent but they aren't as bad as some people make them out to be). They are also demanding that a "pride" flag be placed in the Chick-Fil-A store.
As far as I'm concerned the issue over Dan Cathy's remarks are a First Amendment issue. If this case were to go to court the petitioners would get laughed out. Thus, I think their demands are not only completely unrealistic, I think they should be called out on them. I understand that they are offended but there is absolutely no reason they should demand what they are demanding. How can I politely point out the problem here without sounding like a homophobe? I think they need to be taken down a notch. How can I put them in their place with class?
The only reason I stay here is because I can have serious discussions with intelligent people. There is a group called "Worthless Banter", which was rather popular for a while. Ironically created because of me. But yeah, a lot of it is serious. Like the OPs question, "How do I crush my enemies without looking like a douche?"
You're being ironic right now aren't you?
I'm thinking he's raised his trolling to a new level.
See, I think you're trying to be ironic here, but it's not really working because it's true. We are, in fact, "hilarious!"
Banter, yes. But worthless? No. Lighthearted does not necessarily mean without value.
Quite a few of us have had epiphanies, or at least revelations about ourselves or our situations.
I actually consider this forum a very worth-WHILE resource.
I still don't like their sandwiches
My wife is a fan, but I think it's a nostalgia thing for her. I like them better than most other fast food chicken sandwiches, but I'd still prefer a good burger.
There's already a ton of answers on here, and I don't have time to read them so forgive me if this is a duplicate. The simple matter is that no owner of a Chic Fil A restaurant can sign a document that in any way implicates or requires an apology from Dan Cathy. This further goes to show that this group has no concept of the real world or how things work, and this only decreases their credibility and their chances of making any progress on a real issue.

Often it happens when I type too fast, or i'm typing on something other than a laptop. Other times it's to make a distinction between what I (IMHO) consider Real Christian or false christian. it's nothing to split the church over.
I don't think you can use "IMHO" in that context.
