    I havent voted for a republican or democrat in a long long time. Its comical that you will sit back and espouse his virtues all the while freely admit that he is a liar and a political opportunist that sees people as nothing more than tools and voting blocs.

    O yes...sycophants definitely get the government they deserve. Unfortunately you take the rest of us along for the ride with you.

    Both sides are.

    He's entitled to his ignorant opinion; that doesn't mean there is nothing wrong with it.

    Realistically both sides of this can co exist together
    Nope. The pro-discrimination side will go the same route as other pro-discrimination movements in the past...they'll either die off and be replaced by generations that don't support this ignorance, or they'll actively change their minds and do a mea culpa, or they'll just slink away and pretend they never held those views.

    and come to a realistic solution if you all weren't so busy trying to oppress each other and shove your views down each others throats.
    The only realistic solution is to allow equal civil rights for all Americans regardless of their sexual orientation. Anything less constitutes discrimination.

    I would never support anything that took away a persons right to boycott. I agree it goes both ways. Those people do and should have the right to do it. Just because someone has the right to do it doesnt change that they are just as big of idiots and bigots as what they are protesting.

    As a gay person, I will still patronize chick-fil-a. Dan Cathy feels as strongly about his values, beliefs, and convictions as I do about mine. If you as an indidual or as a group are intolerant of his values, convictions, and beliefs, how can you then expect him (or others) to be tolerant of yours?

    I grew up with Bubba Cathy's kids- spent a lot of time with Bubba, Dan, and Truett as a kid. They will not compromise on their beliefs. I respect that. I can also say that while they believe homosexuality and SSM are wrong, they are not hateful people. They are kind generous people whose beliefs I do not personally agree with.

    Gay people, if it is your goal to promote tolerance, you should do that.

    Everyone who owns a business has to make decisions and sounds like the Muppet Co did just that. They like it I like it for them.

    As long as the "Chick dude" doesn't discriminate against gays, he can say anything he wants, IMO. Just like you can not buy from Chick dude.

    You have got to be kidding me. Have you never heard of "One Million Moms"? They are a conservative group that has been advocating boycotts of any and all companies who support same sex marriage or gay rights in any way. Heck, look at the comments in this newsstory posted today,

    Amazon CEO gives $2.5M for Wash. gay marriage law - Yahoo! News

    Are you going to tell me that those aren't conservatives in the comments section saying they are no longer shopping at Amazon because of this? The last 3 or 4 months have been filled with news about boycotts from conservatives of various companies who support same sex marriage or gay rights at all, including JCPenny, Google, Oreo/Nabisco, Starbucks, the Muppets, and now Amazon. One company is being boycotted by some liberals.

    What exactly did they say that was so offensive and disrespectful? Exact quotes please.

    Yep. Just like Martin Luther King should have just been more tolerant of Bull Connor and his firehoses and attack dogs. Both sides made a reasonable argument, so they should've just been respectful of each other's point of view and agreed to disagree. Right?
