I hope that in America people have a right to be ignorant, ill-informed and base their life's ideology on a fictional book of fables and the rest of us, cherishing freedom, would protect that sacred freedom.

Question: Whats the opposite of cultural elitist? Bogusly indignant faux populist?
But they couldn't help themselves because they're stupid. If you think people waited in blocks long lines last week because of what Dan Cathy said, you are mistaken. They waited because tyranny espoused by elected officials is unacceptable at any level. Still, I doubt they learned that lesson.
"Ask not what your country can do for you". Yeah right.
OK. I looked at these links, and now I'd like to know how you intend to repay me for such wasted time.
1. Marriott vs. Chickfila?! Really? Before getting into the ridiculous nature of such a comparison, I can sum it up and shut it down with one simple fact. Marriott is a publicly traded company while Chickfila is a private corporation.
2. Jon Stewart? What crap. Zero news value, and I'm constantly amazed at his Christian hating ways. He mocked churches being in boston, chicago, etc. while completely ignoring facts-like the mosques and religious leaders who have come to major cities with land and tax breaks at the invitation of these mayors, and their actual anti-gay stance.
Who did boston's mayor say he didn't want in Boston? A guy who supports the biblical definition of marriage and never once said anything bad about gay people. Who did the mayor of Boston invite in? A muslim leader who said, "the punishment of homosexuality is the death penalty", and "Some say we should throw them from a high place, like God did with the people of Sodom. Some say we should burn them."
Yeah. Jon Stewart should stick with comedy since facts aren't his strongest suit.

Another thing that I must mention is how predictable Jon Stewart's rants have become. He makes fun of 'the far right' for eating a chickfila sandwich out of support, yet never once mentions the idiocy of those who want to protest by not eating a sandwich. The simple fact is that the boycott failed, had an opposite effect, and now they're playing catch up.
sure, john stewart is a liberal. he certainly makes not claims to the contrary. but anyone who suggests he does not take on the left and their stupidity is being intellectually dishonest.
Uhhhhh... Obviously you either didn't watch it or you have a serious case of denial. The entire end is about making fun of churches being in each of the cities where mayors told off ChickFila, and lumping them all together as gay haters.
And his prescribed 'taking on the left' is as softball as fox news asking republicans 'tough questions'. What a joke. You and many other people miss another thing he always says-he's not news or journalism by any means, but 80 some percent of his viewers use that as their main source of news. Pretty damn sad.
why would you lump me in there? i'm well aware that JS is not a journalist. i certainly don't use him as my main source of news.You and many other people miss another thing he always says-he's not news or journalism by any means, but 80 some percent of his viewers use that as their main source of news.

"Noone is allowed to be indignant about this except me because I'm right and everyone else is stupid." This thread is dead, dead, dead.
I really can't help that you people don't wish to comprehend the show you love.
"I think maybe the mayors haven't thought this thing through"
(footage of mayors)
"Is being against gay marriage your standard of values because I'm pretty sure there's already another franchise based anti-gay marriage organization with branches throughout your cities you more than likely embrace…(shows church) that's the one with over 1 billion served."
"There you go chickfilaters, don't you stop until there's a church in every town-oh wait, really?"
