My opinion sucks because it differs from yours ? You do not want me discussing it on here because my opinion differs from yours ? Tough, I'm here and so is my opinion. I have made more than two posts and ALL of my posts have been right on topic. I suggest you go and reread them. If you do not want differing opinions then I suggest you take your very obviously angry tone and agenda and leave . Go have your discussion on a pro gay forum instead of one that shares both sides of the coin.

Again, why post this on a forum for discussion if you do not want opposing opinions ? Afraid of a debate ? We disagree and now we are stupid ? WOW!!!! Talk about hatred and obvious agenda.....

I'm about to post a topic about Apple Pie but I could care less about your opinions of Apple Pie or it's caramelized yummy ingredients, this thread is to discuss the obvious iron deficiency of Liver eaters.
Give me a freaking break......

I hope you get temporarily banned for trying to derail my thread. If you want to discuss opinions on Barilla itself, go right ahead -- IN YOUR OWN THREAD.

That is not what this thread is about.

I've told you this 3 times now. Your reaction each time is to get defensive and say that I'm getting upset with you because we disagree.

Whether or not we agree is irrelevant, BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE TOPIC OF THIS THREAD, YOU'RE DE-RAILING IT.

What is the topic? All I see is you calling everyone that doesn't agree with your view an "idiot". You are taking a non-issue and using it too bash people who do not agree with you.

Are you 12 ? You posted an article about people protesting Barilla Pasta company because of their anti gay stance but then said you do not wish to discuss the article you posted ? How am I derailing the thread ? You say Barilla and conservatives are causing a collective anti gay mentality. I pointed out that it does not matter at all whether they are pro gay or anti gay. They are not causing any form of collective hatred for gays. Ridiculous

Likes and Dislikes?? you must be talking about facebook, what do you expect from facebook? facebook is where people go to make a public spectacle of their ignorance while sitting safely behind their keyboards.
Do yourself a favor, stop reading facebook, stop using facebook.

ETA: I see the source link leads to yahoo,
that`s even worse than facebook. you can`t take anything people say on sites like that seriously.sites like those are troll magnets.

NO, I buy their pasta because I am SICK of watching good wholesome people, their families and their businesses being trashed by Liberals and Gays because they believe differently.
Tired of the typical Liberal view of "your opinion only matters if I agree with it"

EVERYONE is ENTITLED to their beliefs and how dare these gay men and women and the extreme liberals try and tell me and everyone else what we should think, who we should be what we should buy etc....

I'm tired of it, im tired of the agenda being shoved down my thorat and ANY time I can help someone or their business from being trashed because they voiced their honest opinions...I will. The CEO did not trash talk gays but with the way many of the gays are acting you would think he called for them to be burned at the stake.

I will help them and any bakery, and photographer, and any business who is subject to this kind of double standard.


Alright since my thread has officially been derailed by people whose best excuses at this point would be a few extra chromosomes, I'll bite.

The funny thing is that you're saying people have the right to their opinion. But when the gays express their opinion on this guy's opinion, you tell them to keep their opinion to themselves.

...About them trying to tell someone else their opinion about keeping that person's opinion to themselves?

I hope that clears it up for nobody, because the argument can only go on and on endlessly as long as its perpetuated by more and more stupid people from both sides.

Soon we'll have people telling people that they shouldn't say things about people who say things that shouldn't be said about people who say things about people who say things that shouldn't be said! WHO WILL SAY SOMETHING TO THOSE PEOPLE!?

Fck, you people mind want to look into why I wrote the actual topic of this thread in big bold lettering at the top of the OP, it's because this argument is absolutely pointless.

I wish I could applaud you myself for being the first person to read the OP and post on topic.

It's like there are other out there who enjoy reading more than just the threa title and regurgitating what they think they should say to get social currency from what they think is the majority vote of that site.

Then again, look here on ATS at this very thread; it's the exact same thing, so I'm not sure you can rip into Yahoo and Facebook too much. People give eachother stars for posting off-topic opinions as long as they are on the same track as the group-think.

Nope, you so far are the only one telling people to keep their opinions to themselves. I have not said your opinion is not welcome. You are entitled to it no matter how much I disagree with it and think it's warped and perverted. I have no worries about it. Tell me how conservatives come into play because Barilla disagrees with the gay agenda ? You assume that all conservatives are anti gay. I do not consider myself conservative or liberal. I do tend to vote based on moral topics though which would typically steer me more to the conservative side.

Love me, accept me, define me, just do not ever disagree with me. It is very hard to discuss a thread that the OP continuously attempts to derail by disciplining the participants because him is having a widdle tantrum because people disagree with him. Looks like you should be the one to be temporarily banned for derailing.
Dang those tables turn rather easily.

Wrong again!

I believe everyone, me, you, gays, lesbians, conservatives, and liberals alike are entitled to their opinions. I believe that no one or group should tell ANYONE else what their opinion is or should be. We have the ability to think for ourselves, all i'm saying is that we should continue to be allowed to do so.

I don't care about flags, stars, thumbs up or thumbs down maybe you would be a lot happier if you stopped caring about such things too. You posted this on ATS knowing that everything aside (whether we stayed EXACTLY on topic or not) that people would disagree with you. Maybe you should find a site where everyone shares the same mentatility and one closed mind that you seem to be searching so desperatly for.

Here's the decipher, "I'm posting about Barilla being protested because of their stance on the gay agenda but I could care less about anyone's opinion about that. Instead contrary to my topic I wish to discuss that IMO Barilla and other conservatives are turning others anti gay and if we cannot discuss that aspect of it then piss on it and anyone that gives a comment about the article itself"
How'd I do ?

I would say that following your logic then AT&T and Ernst and Young are turning the masses pro gay . Works on both sides of the fence. Those two horrible corporations threatened the BSA with force to compromise to their pro gay agenda. I do not see Barilla trying to do that at all.

LOL you people are blowing my mind right now.

How many times do I have to say it.

This thread was not created to discuss your opinions on the Barilla CEO's statements.

This thread was created to discuss a growing social construct that has come with the age of the internet, Barilla was used as an example of people getting back-pats for saying stupid things

If you look at what's quoted in the OP, it's not a matter of opinion at all, I quoted a person who ha no idea what the word "boycott" meant, and made a post opposing boycotting, and got a huge amount of support for it.

THIS THREAD WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH PEOPLES' OPINIONS ON BARILLA BEYOND THAT

Reading comprehension, people. Learn it.
