Joe. My. God. points out that the optimal ratio in a pen is actually 1 rooster to 12 hens. Still sounds Biblical to me.

Biblical marriage is more like 1 rooster, 12 hens, and 80 concubines.

Someone should write on the sign; “No, two cocks”.
Still waiting for one of these Christians to explain to me why their personal beliefs are more important than my rights.
Also, while they’re at it, they can explain to me how come breaking laws and violating commands from their holy book suddenly comes out as okay in this situation.
They can do whatever they want to their own chickens, but they can’t determine how other people keep theirs
Why are all these Christians fighting for “1 man 1 woman”? Don’t they understand the Biblical definition of Godly marriage is 700 wives and 300 concubines? (sorry Mike D – my numbers are based on the Bible and since everyone knows the Bible is the inerrant word of God, you can’t just make up theories like 12 Hens and 80 concubines- you have to go to the source material)

I guess gay chickens burn in the eternity frier!
I am with you with this one! I keep hearing that they have a right to their beliefs but no one sees the irony that their belief is to infringe on others! Hello! That ends all arguments! Anyone? Anyone at all?? Did people sleep during critical thinking 101?? Oh wait… they don’t teach that!
Critical Thinking is now a University course, at least, in most secular universities, and we all know how True Christians are with ‘those’ types of schools.
Betty Bowers Explains Traditional Marriage to Everyone Else
The CoCiCU seems to be avoiding the fact that if there’s no rooster, the hens will mount each other. Sometimes even if you add a roo, the hens will show preference for each other and peck the snot out of the rooster if he tries to butt in, and if there’s more than one rooster, sometimes they like each other rather than fight over dominance and ignore the hens entirely.
But hey, don’t let the observations of people who have actually raised chickens get in the way of your little analogy, anti-gay churchies.

for lies on top of lies
do you think you can threaten my right to FREE SPEECH?
what if I told you that I am not who you think I am….
Not Dennis Markuze – but a FAN!
you’re not the center of the universe!
a dishonest liar
SNL, Jon Stewart, Colbert, etc. How I do envy them. They can fire all of their writers and just have christians do it all for them!
I don’t know whether to laugh my ass off or feel like shit that I have to live in the vicinity of these illiterate trogs.
1 Rooster 15 hens is more like it!
Their chickens may be straight, but I’m sure there are plenty of church goers eating transsexual fish.
I just watched a Modern Marvels on turkeys. Those fundie birds get up to a 40-1 ratio! And the girls don’t get a lot of say in it…that sounds pretty much traditional.
Roosters don’t exist! It’s a made up word by Christians that couldn’t stand the word cockerel or the shorter form cock. Let us take back the naming of this fine creature! It’s in the KJV with Peter’s denial…
I was thinking secondary school, as pretty much all of my religious friends went to a parochial school for college. But I can see a whole messy debate opening that one, since we are still debating intelligent design! Ahh! It burns!
I just realized i forgot to mention that one of my University courses next year is a philosophy course called ‘critical thinkinhg’. We were never offered anything close to that in both elementary and secondary school.
don’t forget the raped virgins!
Critical Thinking? That’s just the evil liberals trying to brainwash your kid from Jesus. Hence why the good, god-fearing Republicans took a stand against it in Texas.
Even a silly sign is seen to have sexual connotation…wow, one track mind!
Is the church aware that we usually end up eating the hen and scrambling the children. I don’t think that Chick-fil-a chicken raising is a good example of human relationships.
Chickens don’t do 1 hen and 1 rooster. They do 1 rooster and as many hens as he can manage to keep away from the other roosters. Sometimes they all do the hens.
Maybe it would be more inspiring if the people who wrote Church signs ever sounded like they had any education at all.
Is this church suggesting that god wants us to eat married couples?
