The Internet is NOT Like Las Vegas

Just when you think another hate-mongering millionaire has caved and no will no longer spread his hatespeach around on the Internet because it doesn't sell as much chicken, Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy has gotten his foot stuck in his mouth again.
Cathy had bad, bad things to say about the SCOTUS decision to overturn DOMA yesterday. He was so upset about how gays and lesbians can now enjoy the same rights as the rest of us that he "Tweeted" this:

The cornerstone he refers to, I would guess, is marriage.
Now that the gays are getting married, that cornerstone is sullied in some way. Dan Cathy can no longer dine on his snot sandwiches without thinking of how gay people can have wedding rings,  can collect each others' social security checks, can see each other in the hospital, can file their 1040s as Married Filing Jointly, and can inherit each others' estates without paying taxes on them.
I imagine Dan Cathy now has to file for divorce.
Like in this video that I embedded in a previous post some time ago.

No, Dan Cathy was not having a good day and made it known to the world through his Twitter account, only to realize just a few minutes later that he might not be able to sell as many of his disgusting-tasting snot sandwiches as he could before, and erased it.
But Cathy needs to learn something about the Internet as much as he needs to learn about humanity and compassion. He needs to learn that while "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" the same is not true on the Internet.
Once it's on the Internet, it's there until Judgment Day
A day that in all probability will be another bad one for Dan Cathy.
