    Except that most of these people are supporting their local food banks and homeless centers through their church missions funds AND through behind the scenes actions such as gathering food and advertising to those who need the services. Shame on them for not doing more! I`m a pastor, I see the work that goes on behind the scenes.

    the people who ate at c-f-a just to "support" them are the same people who believe that hating someone for having different beliefs is the right thing to do.

    so why would you expect to see them at a food bank?

    That protest was nothing to do with religion - yet again, f`ing lefties are too thick to understand the opinions of people who disagree with them.

    Many of the protesters support gay marriage. Many others have little opinion. The protest was about freedom of speech, and the sick, unconstitutional threats of certain socialist politicians, trying to use you left-wing idiots for their own political advancement, by banning Chik-A-Fil from opening new stores.

    You guys are idiots.

    Clearly nobody here has been to a food bank or given to the Salvation army. There is a ton of volunteers. In fact, most kitchens for the homeless have too many volunteers, they don`t need as many as they have.

    And finally, the Salvation Army, by definition, is religious. Most of these charity organizations are religious. Religious groups easily give more to the needy.

    This whole argument is fallacious, anyways. Just because they`re supporting chick fil-a means they`re not giving to charity, etc. It`s illogical. It`s possible to do more than one thing you believe in, for those intellectual lightweights. I`m not even religious, but you critics are a little *too* critical and selective with said criticism.

    I suspect the person who submitted this has never actually asked the volunteers at a soup kitchen, homeless shelter or food bank how they came to be there.

    FURTHERMORE, I`d love to see a comparison between charity work/giving between the Left and the Right. Republicans vs. Democrats. Christians vs. Atheists.

    Bill Gates and Warren Buffet can`t shoulder all the giving, lefties. Step up or STFU.

    so why would you expect to see them at a food bank?

    1) They wouldn`t necessarily see a contradiction - from their point of view, both things are following the orders of their religion.

    2) Most Christians weren`t at Chick-fil-a, obviously. You can find many Christians volunteering at or otherwise in support of homeless shelters, feeding centres, etc. Many non-Christians too, but that`s not the point here. I`ve even known of a Christian cleric who criticised their own congregation from the pulpit for not doing it...and they know, because they`re working at the charity every day. Except for the time they went away for a couple of months because they were working with medicins sans frontieres.

    Not all Christians are arseholes.

    or something.
    UK law has taken 200,000 years to become as understandable (impenetrable) as it currently is.
    US law has got another 199,800 years to catch up.
    In the meantime, they have a row in a chicken shop, forgetting their constitution.
    Of course, the UK being perfect, never experiences this sort of thing.

    It is because christians (and most religious people, for that mater) are ignorant. It is actually a requirement that one must be ignorant in order to be a part of christianity. If you are not ignorant, you`ll realize how full of sillyness the bible really is.

    Huh, what?

    Recorded history in the UK only goes back 2100 years and it`s only well documented during the Roman period (when Roman law applied, unsurprisingly) and for about the last 1000 years.

    Even those documentated parts don`t cover the whole of the UK for most of that period. Roman Britannia ended in what`s now northern England and some parts of the law are *still* different in Scotland.

    Nobody has a clue what the law was in any part of the UK 200,000 years ago and it`s most unlikely that it would have been the same everywhere that`s now the UK. There weren`t even any homo sapiens here then. We`re not even certain this area was inhabited by any of the homo genus back then. It wasn`t even seperate from Europe (that was far more recent).

    Caveat: We do have a good idea of the laws of England in the late 9th century, but that`s about it for records of law in the UK from early 5th to mid 11th century. Not that the UK existed at that time - it was various seperate countries, presumably with some different laws.

    Just to claim that you are something has little to do with being what you claim to be. The Chick-Fil-A situation is about fascism. Unfortunately in this country we fight fascism with a countering fascist movement.

    Baelzar-"I`d love to see a comparison between charity work/giving between the Left and the Right."

    There`s been several, and the Right always ends up being more charitable.

    For example: Romney averages donating 16% of his income to charity. The Obama`s gave only 1% until it became an embarassment, then upped it to 5%. Biden gave 0.3% before becoming VP, and has since increased it to a whopping 1.4%.

    Some studies have shown that, on average, Conservative households donate twice as much money as Liberal. Republicans also donate more blood as well.

    For volunteering, one studies showed that 42.5% of Democrats volunteered, while 53.7% or Republicans do.

    It basically boils down to this: Republicans are more likely to donate their OWN time and money, whild Democrats would prefer to donate OTHER PEOPLE`S money.

    And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.

    And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

    But if someone darest to put a tongue-in-thy-cheek picture in a public place for viewing, turn to them and call them an ignorant bitch, for that will teach them the true message of the lord."

    For those who say Christians give more to charity- I call BS. If you take away the money they give to their church (of which 90%+ just goes toward paying the church staff and funding the church itself) they give significantly less to causes that actually help other people.
    Churches are just right-wing social clubs these days. You don`t get to count your membership dues as "charitable giving" (even though the tax code allows you to).

    I`m an atheist and I have to say that when I get involved in any charity work most others there are christian. Mind you, there are times (not all that often) when charity comes with a pretty specific agenda.

    There are a couple of reasons for that. First, most people are religious, even in the UK atheists are a minority and were a tiny minority decades ago when most charities were being established. So inevitably most volunteers are going to be religious - if you comprise 90% of the population that`s quite a head start.

    Religious people are organised with churches and church groups and fetes and whist drives and what have you. Atheists don`t tend to seek each other out and congregate. (Post-internet that kinda changed but we just end up fighting among ourselves.)
    Secular charity on the other hand, round my way, is based on fund raising by local pubs, sports clubs and neighbourhoods generally.

    But this was a silly post.

    I don`t know whether you are right or not, I suspect you are when it comes to the mega-churches who are focussed on fund raising to a manic level. We have so far been spared those in the UK. Most traditional parish churches are pretty decent.

    @LordJim- I speak from direct experience with churches of several sizes. The last church I went to before I stopped going altogether was a modest little church with a few hundred members. It`s total annual budget was $148,582. All "benevolence" spending put together added up to $17,626. All the rest of the money was spent on the church itself and its employees.

    So if I give $1000/yr to my church, and therefore brag about how I give $1000/yr to charity... what I`ve really done is given $118 dollars to what most people would consider actual "charity" and given $882 to support my own little social club.

    The question then is- should I really get to call the full $1000 a "charitable donation".

    @LordJim - There are a growing number of evangelical churches in the UK too. Most of these demand 10% tithe on your gross income + an additional offering on top. Very little is spent on charitable causes. The Charity Commission publishes the accounts of these churches so you can see where the money is spent

    No. Romney donates money to his own little cult. That is not charity. Do you count the money Tom Cruise gives to Scientology as charitable contributions?

    Giving money to feed starving children or vaccinate people in Africa is charity. Giving money to build mammoth lavish houses of worship and send people all over the world to knock on doors is not.

    Actually, every time my pastor has asked ppl in our church to go to a food bank or homeless shelter during a sermon, we DO get this many ppl. Having done volunteer work for years, I have to say that I see more Christians than atheists at events where I`ve worked, and they actually tend to do WORK as opposed to the hippie environmentalists, who tend to take inordinate numbers of breaks and leave s*** half-finished all the time.

    Like hell it`s a freedom of speech issue, that`s definitely not why those protesters showed up, just watch some of the interviews. Besides, if you want to make it a freedom issue, the cities are have just as much freedom to deny them a new building permit.

    Let`s be clear though, it`s not the real christians that showed up to protest, it was the hannity/limbaugh sheeple that turned out in droves.

    Ah, so you want to be able to tell them they can only donate to STATE AUTHORIZED charities?

    HolyGod-"Do you count the money Tom Cruise gives to Scientology as charitable contributions?"

    It`s his money to give, and yes it would be a charitable contribution*...just not to a cause I agree with. He is under no compunction to ask me what I think first.

    Unlike liberals, I understand the concept that Cruise`s money is his to do with what he likes. He can give it away to anyone he likes. Or he can fill a pool with it and swim in it. I. Do. Not. Care.

    *Legal definition of charitable contribution: "a contribution to an organization which is officially created for charitable, religious, educational, scientific, artistic, literary, or other good works." So yes, Scientology applies.

    Actually, they don`t. They are not allowed, by law, to discriminate against a business based on it`s religious views.

    They can TRY, but then the city will be paying Chick-Fil-A a nice, big settlement.
