  1. Former Republican Lawmaker Aaron Schock Has Come Out As Gay

    During his six years in Congress, Schock voted against many measures supported by the LGBTQ community, including hate crimes legislation and the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell."

    Former Republican member of Congress Aaron Schock came out as gay on Thursday in a long statement posted to Instagram and his personal website.

    Schock spoke about his years of struggling with his sexuality and estrangement from his conservative family, and added that if he were in Congress now, he would "would support LGBTQ rights in every way [he] could."

    During his six years in Congress representing Illinois, Schock consistently voted against policies supported by the LGBTQ community, including the 2010 repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," which allowed gay and bisexual people to openly serve in the military, and the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

    Although he did not explicitly apologize for his legislative record, Schock said that when he first ran for office in 2008, presidential candidates John McCain, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton publicly opposed marriage equality.

    What a joke asking for  $ 5 million dollars.  The whole suing for millions culture is disgusting. This "burger" is aimed at getting people off meat and trying alternative vegetarian products - which is important and a step in the right direction - and surely vegans should know better than to go to a "burger places"  as so much meat is cooked there. Plus there is information talking of cooking it differently on request.   Actions like this are so counter productive to their cause.

    It is ridiculous. If I was vegan I think I would have a hard time going into a Burger King since there’s always a very strong scent of a lot of cooking meat assaulting your senses when you walk in! And the kitchen is usually right there and fully visible by the checkout so you’ll be seeing meat burgers getting flipped and cooked while you wait! :wacko:

    this and this
