#5 The most interesting take I have heard was from a spokesperson for a gay church, Hope Cathedral, who said to a reporter that they had no comment because some of their members were employed by Chick-Fil-A. So much for so called hate at CFA, but the left lives in lala land, not in the real world.

#6 One of the Right's problems is that we "posture" as hypocritically as the Leftists, only in a different way. If this had been on a known Gay bar instead of a Chick-Fil-A, the left would have gone full throttle on this, totally ignoring the fact of its solitariness: an argument that you KNOW they will throw at us concerning THIS if WE go Alinsky on THEM. Thus, we will "nobly" ignore this insult and turn the other cheek, ignoring the fact that Jesus only allowed the wicked ONE slap. Rightist, christian "posturing" in the face of Leftist "posturing".
I am not arguing here that we "go Alinsky" with this, not letting this "crisis" "go to waste": I think we should, but I'm going to argue something different: that Reason and debate as a means of resolving differences, getting buy-in and cooperation works only as long as both sides are committed to the process to the point of ACTING contrary to their previous position if the process goes against them. The left simply does not do this when it comes to debate, so there is no reason to believe they'll acquire integrity when they lose when the stakes are high. One must think of the Left being the Philistines, promising to be the slaves of the Hebrews if Goliath was beaten if the hebrews would agree to be slaves if Goliath won, only to refuse to follow through with the deal when David slew Goliath. What we need to be like is David, not only the man with the RIGHT to destroy the Philistines to the last man because they welshed on their "deal" when he put his life on the line against such odds, but who FOLLOWED THROUGH and did it so effectively that they weren't around to bother Solomon.
I have been reviewing how the Left worked in my case, and the thing that keeps coming up is the outrageous claim, the Big lie, the OFFENDING act. Poop on the police car, because it is so outrageous and irrational an act that your defenders will claim it is too outrageous to be believeable if there's adverse blow-back. Biden succeeded in flustering Palin not because of his brilliancy, but because she was not prepared for the eventuality that he would LIE on national TV. The next GOP VP candidate must NOT be prepared for the eventuality that Biden, or his replacement, will LIE on national TV: They must be prepared for the eventuality that biden, or his replacement, WILL DO WORSE.
Sometimes, the left is predictable enough so that a Bush can smack a Rather with a little pre-preparation, but Tit-for-tat isn't gonna work in these days. What we need is someone to go for the jugular in the way that The Gipper did to Mondale: the left MSM was setting up Reagan on the "oldster vs. youth" issue, framing the debate to prompt Mondale to openly question Reagan on his qualifications due to his age. Reagan's solemn promise not to make an issue of his opponent's "relative youth and inexperience" was, of course, unkind to Mondale because he had been in politics many years and thus wasn't inexperienced, but THAT WAS THE POINT: The previous years of hate and ankle-biting and unreasonable criticism was itself unkind to Reagan, and thus prepared him to respond in kind, but in his own personal style and way.
I have heard this self-defense tip: if you elect to strike at your attacker with the heel of your hand against his nose, don't go for the nose, but for the back of the head. If one aims for the nose, there is a tendency to pull back just before impact that does not exist when aiming for the back of the head.
Go for the back of their head. It won't hurt since there's nothing inside.
