    Hey, if you're cool with putting blacks out of work, let's close all Chic-fil-A's in Chicago.

    So you support businesses that support gays but find it perfectly OK for a mayor to exclude one from a city because of a different point of view on marriage? (Not to mention the business has discriminated against no one while reflecting their views)

    The only word I can think of is hypocrite.

    No. I work with and respect lots of people who don't support SSM and their opinions are there own.

    However, people who give money to deceitful groups that spread lies about gays and have little concern for how those lies affect the lives of gay people, are pretty stupid. Especially when they are purported to support "Christian" and "family" values. Since when are those values best represented by deceit and reckless disregard?

    Oh, no. They're stupid because they hold those opinions. If a person believes in 3000 year old islamo-judeo-christo-voodoo mysticism and uses it to guide their life, they are for all intended purposes stupid and anachronistic. End of story.

    Once again, freedom of speech only matters if you agree with liberal indoctrination.
    You misunderstand freedom of speech. He's free to say anything he wants, and others are free to respond however they want. And if people don't want one in their district, they can deny that as well, though I would not.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

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.
    all I see is that you have your knickers in a twist over this because, and only because, it is one of your pet issues.

    as long as chik-fil-a isn't doing anything illegal, this is a non-issue.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
