    Right here. This is a prime example. You wanna boycott Chick Fil A? More power to ya, vote with your own money. But when mayors of cities get involved and tell a person "your values aren't my city's values", or "we wont allow your business here" because of your values, you are crossing even a legal line.

    You want to send a message to people "with more money than sense". Right here. A condescending way of saying, "if you oppose gay marriage, you are dumb". You have more money than sense. It's the clever way in which these sentiments are implied. I'm not a dumb person, I understand language quite well. What I'm sick of are these liberals who demand that we live in a "tolerant" society, but a society that doesn't tolerate certain view points. It's patently absurd, and frankly, it's an offense to one's intelligence.

    How many comments on this board have started like this: "personally, I think the CEO is flat out wrong and stupid....." Again, the condescention from the left is nauseating. Like somehow, if I oppose gay marriage, it's because I'm uneducated, or that I'm a bigot. I personally oppose gay marriage as well, and I'm fairly highly educated. What if I were to say something like this, "homosexuality is attributed to a low IQ", or "if you are gay, you are stupid"? Is that a tolerant belief? No, it isnt. Yet, it seems perfectly fine for liberals to run around and call anyone who opposes same sex marriage "stupid", "intollerant", "dumb", "biggoted", "haters", "rednecks". Wanna have that honest conversation liberals? Then stop calling the kettle black, and realize that liberals, by and large, are far more intollerant than anyone else in America. Period.

    True. Intelligence has no bearing on beliefs. Intelligence is solely the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills. It is unbelievable how so many misuse its meaning.

    Yet another condescending response. Basically saying, "true, no matter how intelligent a bigot is, he's still a bigot." Also implying that real intelligence leads a person to support same sex marriage. lol...also absurd and an insult to intelligence.

    I think you misunderstand my post.

    I'm agreeing with your excerpt, Masada, in that those who think people who don't support SSM are dumb... are wrong themselves.

    If that is so would you please present the exact components/matter that determine homosexuality? This would exclude absolutely any sort of subjectivity and theorization.

    Mayors are elected to represent their constituents values and there are many, many mayors all across the country who refuse to allow certain companies to do business in their communities. Porn shops, liquor stores, bars, pawn shops, or businesses that just don't fit in the neighborhood. They aren't always successful as in the case Walmart but that is part of a mayors job to help bring in the right kind of business that will improve and benefit their community. So if a business is openly discriminatory against tax paying citizens in that community then why should they be allowed to do business there? Most businesses are tolerant and accept diversity, but Chick-fil-a shown has shown that it is not willing to accept a certain segment of society. So why should a diverse society accept them?


    What I'm sick of are conservative's double standards. Why should Liberals be expected to live up to a Conservatives definition of tolerance when conservatives don't live up to it themselves? Case in point.....

    Moot, do you think government should punish certain businesses based on the opinions/legal actions of their owners?

    Do you think a business has a right to discriminate against the people that live in the community it does business in? I don't. Especially, if they intend to profit off that community. Who pays for the police, roads, sidewalks and street lamps that make it convenient and secure for the customers to go to that business? The people in a community have a vested interest in the kind of companies they want in their community and if that businesses values don't fit....then they don't belong there.
