    You aren't very well informed about gay issues. I doubt you are partnered with any gay organization. You wouldn't be so clueless if you were.

    I love it when those on the Right quote extreme left publications to support their arguments. Even though, in this case, they don't defend the chicken guy at all. What they criticize is the involvement of government in the process. They support the right to boycott these right wing establishments.

    Gotcha. I saw this

    Just as I am free to no longer support the bigots pushing for ssm
    And thought you were suggesting they were bigots for pushing SSM. I see what you were saying now.

    Perhaps you could translate for the rest of us.

    And you ignorantly believe they're not. Silly. As I said, it just doesn't matter to me either way. I don't care if Chik no longer gets their cheapo Chinese crap toys from Henson. Just noting that the obvious reason you care is that you like what Lisa has to say and are willing to support cheap Chinese crap if you like the message attached to them.

    Wrong. I and every other person discriminate against people every day. I discriminte against stupid people. I discriminate against assholes. I am a private indicidual and perfectly free to do so, just as you are. I am very discriminating as to what companies I do business with, and there is not one thing wrong nor illegal with it.

    And you are correct. Within certain defined parameters, private individuals are free to discriminate. We all do. It's the government (and those who work in government when they're using their official capacity) that is largely restrained from doing so.

    If you are basing your decision whether or not to do business with a company on their religious beliefs there absolutely is something wrong with it. (morally not legally in most cases)
