    Marriage has a definition.
    It is defined as a union of a man and a woman, committed to sharing their lives together on the bodily, emotional, and rational-volitional levels of their being, in the kind of community that would be naturally fulfilled by having and rearing children together.
    Its definition is supported by religious sacrament for the procreation of man..
    It is a Universal law of science and nature.
    It is a rule of the universe..
    We as Society can try and redefine the definition of Marriage,, But it will Always fail the test if it doesn’t include different sexes.. Universally by science law,, it cant happen, just as an element cant be Nitrogen if it doesn’t have 7 electrons, 7 protons and & neutrons..
    Our societal law of Marriage may be different. It may Include same sex “Marriage”
    But it really cant be called “Marriage because it doesn’t meet the Scientific, universal, or sacramental definition…
    Marriage in Society, can be easily obtained,, and also easily broken. A simple form from a stationary store,, and a bit of Money paid to the local authorities, can cancel a societal “marriage..
    Not such an easy task in the eys of the SACRAMENT and the CHURCH
    Nullification of the SACRAMENT of MARRIAGE can be a major undertaking..
    That is because,, before a MARRIAGE is performed through SACREMENT the marriage must meet the Universal , scientific, sacramental definition of the word. Through SACRAMENT ,, both man and Woman pledge honor and devotion to each other for life in the eyes of God.. It is VERY hard to nullify…
    Marriage has NOTHING to do with Judical law… Marriage is a SACRAMENT.
    A Sacrament that specifically defines the word Marriage.


    Our legislators, representatives, Senators ect,, have no business re-defining sacraments defined by Religious beliefs.. Remember,, seperation of Church and state.

    They also cannot pass laws and rules that undermine the constitution that gives us the right of freedom of religion, and the Sacrement of marriage.


    Chick Fillet in EVERY TOWN!!!!! But just because the food is good.... And ONLY because the food is good... Its a RESTURANT.....

    If I may add to that.
    If marriage has its roots in the bible. And we can see in many places where it is instituted by God. IF so,,, Then by shear logic even an atheist man and woman legally married by mans law are actually not married as far as God word defines marriage. Marriage is a man and a woman who strive together to help each other through this life with God as the center piece. . The bible was not written for the eternal God rejectors, for their goal is to desecrate and twist its intentions as to make it of non effect. but ,it was written for "whom so ever will believe". God has used the example of marriage to help his people understand the "GREAT MYSTERY" There is way more to this marriage stuff that meets the eye. His people are the bride and Christ is the bride groom. Spiritual speaking,,, Marriage is a big deal to God,,,which is why attempts to twist and dismantle what ever integrity is left in it. It is the way of the world it seems these days. Its to bad our politicians are leading the way. Of course not surprising,,because the ink has not dried after thousands of years.

    "It's" a troll. If you feed it it will stay here. Trolls don't think very deeply. They just want attention and will do anything to get attention ( and here I am feeding it ). Probably it will find some attention it does not want very soon

    Ditto ! I really think that they should open one in Bartlesville Oklahoma where we currently do almost all of our shopping. We have a good size work force who are employed. Plus we have a large population of retired people who still have money to spend ( and they do just that ). Local chicken type fast food places could sure use some competition.

    I find it disheartening that the secular progressives have wrested enough control that they can demand that Christian values be scoffed at and scorned in America.


    Chick-Fil-A Chicago Fallout: Pastor Takes On Mayor's Opposition, Illinois GOP Offers Coupons
    Posted: 07/31/2012 1:58 pm Updated: 07/31/2012 3:49 pm

    .


    One week since a Chicago alderman's opposition to a new Chick-fil-A restaurant being built in his ward became a national story, the backlash hasn't exactly dissipated.

    In a Sunday sermon, the Rev. Charles Lyons of the Armitage Baptist Church criticized Ald. Proco "Joe" Moreno's stand against the chicken chain over its owner's anti-gay marriage stance. Moreno's comments on the chain have been backed up by Mayor Rahm Emanuel -- a flank of opposition Lyons described as "anti-religious, agenda-driven bullying," CBS Chicago reports.

    Meanwhile, Mayor Emanuel on Monday emphasized that he had no regrets when it came to his previous statement that "Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago values," the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Since making that remark, however, the mayor's office clarified that Emanuel would not block the fast-food chain from opening up new locations of its restaurant in the city.

    "If they meet all the usual requirements, then they can open their restaurant, but he does not believe the CEO’s values are reflective of our city," Tarrah Cooper, Emanuel press secretary, told the Sun-Times.

    To date, the mayor has not, however, taken the owners of Chicago's only current Chick-fil-A up on their invitation for him to visit their restaurant.

    Still the "Chicago values" comment has struck a chord. Chicago Archbishop Francis Cardinal George criticized Emanuel's statement in an op-ed published Sunday on the Archdiocese of Chicago's blog.


    "Must those whose personal values do not conform to those of the government of the day move from the city?" George wrote. "Is the City Council going to set up a 'Council Committee on Un-Chicagoan Activities' and call those of us who are suspect to appear before it?"

    The Illinois Republican Party has also lashed out on the Chick-fil-A controversy. The Daily Herald reports that the state GOP is offering a $5 gift cards to anyone who donates $10 or more to them.

    "Let's show Barack Obama, Mike Madigan and their fellow Chicago Democrats that even in Illinois, we will not stand for business owners being silenced for expressing their opinion," state party chair Pat Brady said in a Monday news release on the matter.

    Ald. Moreno previously stated that, due to the chain's history of anti-gay marriage remarks and contributions to anti-LGBT groups, he does not approve of the College Park, Ga.-based chain's plan to open a new restaurant, the city's second, in the ward he represents.

    His opposition was prompted, in part, by a recent comment Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy made in an interview with the Baptist Press comment that put the chain's long-held opposition to marriage equality back in the spotlight.

    Wednesday will mark a "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" that former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has called for.

    In response to that call, the Chicago-based Hearty Boys launched their own "Chick-fil-Gay Appreciation Day" dinner. They will be donating all proceeds from the evening -- including sale of special fried chicken sandwiches -- at their Hearty restaurant, 3819 N. Broadway, to Equality Illinois, an LGBT advocacy group, Chicago Pride reports.
    Just sayin'..........

    PICKET: Chicago GOP to file complaint against Rahm Emanuel over Chick fil A flap


    By Kerry Picket - The Washington Times
    August 1, 2012, 12:26PM

    The Chicago Republican Party announced last week it would file a complaint with the Illinois Department of Human Rights and Attorney General Lisa Madigan over the discriminatory action by Alderman Proco (Joe) Moreno against the food chain Chick-fil-A.

    The party is now expanding their complaint to cover Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel as well. According to a press release, the Chicago Republican Party says that "the complaint states that the Alderman and the Mayor have broken civil rights laws pertaining to religious freedom and the First Amendment in denying Chick fil A a permit to operate its business in the City of Chicago."

    Following Chick fil A's CEO Dan Cathy's support of traditional marriage, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, and San Francisco liberal politicians spoke out against the food chain and threatened to block Chick fil A from opening any business or further businesses in their cities.

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that Chick fil A's values were not "Chicago values."
    WBEZ reported last week that Chicago's Moreno now wants Chick fil A to put into writing that it “won’t support any groups with a political agenda, including those with an anti-gay marriage stance” before he’ll consider allowing zoning rights to a Chick fil A restaurant in his ward.

    "If they’re serious about that, and they’re willing to put that in writing and they’re willing to adopt that. I think those are the grounds where we can move forward," Moreno said.

    "Chick-fil-A may have a pretty good case under the First Amendment if the city uses their religious or political beliefs as a basis for denying a business license or ability to do business in the city. That is the kind of thing that happens in fascist states," said Hans von Spakovsky, a Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow and former Justice Department attorney to the assistant attorney general for civil rights,
