    I fail to see the difference....other than you support one position and not the other
    You don't see a difference between people who are trying to prevent others from marrying, and those who are taking pride in themselves for being themselves? That's the difference. Gay pride parades don't take away anyone's rights or liberties. People who want to prevent gays from marrying are either taking away someone else's rights, or trying to prevent them from getting them (depending upon which state you live in.

    I assume you would see the difference between a supporters of a black pride parade, and those who want to take away blacks' rights to marry whites.

    EDIT: I also find interesting your assumption that all Christians oppose SSM, and all those who oppose SSM are Christian.

    It's one thing to boycott, it's another for the government to say "no, you can't open your doors in this city because your owner has the wrong view (in our opinion) on an issue."
    This. You hit the nail on the head.

    Let me get this right...you are comparing an organization supporting hate groups with money to organizations supporting same sex marriage?

    Yeah...I don't think you get it.

    I don't support Rahm banning Chik-fil-a because I like it. However, I don't think there's anything wrong with governments doing so including those who would ban target. If you think a business is going to hurt your citizens or your area, then you don't need to let them set up shop there.

    Let me guess "There are some groups that I think spread misinformation about homosexuality and therefore they are a hate group. Group X also defines them as a hate group."

    Like I compared earlier, would you support a city banning Target solely because Target supports SSM and sells pro-homosexual merchandise? From what I see they want to keep Chick Fil A out because they do not represent a city's "values" and not that they support "hate groups."

    I don't buy the whole "homophobia" thing. People who dislike gay people for no other reason than they are gay can be summed up by a much better word. Stupid!

    I'm sorry, but is there a rational reason for fear or antipathy towards homosexuals? I don't understand the qualifier. No one would call racism "the unreasoning fear or antipathy towards other races".
