    Just because they have the right to do it doesnt mean it isnt discrimination. They are refusing to eat his food because they dont like his religion. They are free to shop where they want, but it is still discrimination.

If SSM makes its way back to Colorado this bigotry has lost at least one vote and if I can help it more. I am going to strongly advocate against GLAAD and cospride.org until they stop this nonsensical attack on a man for no reason other than his religious beliefs.
    Disagreeing with someones views is in no way discrimination. Basically you can believe that marriage should be whatever you want and you can voice that opinion. But as soon as you actually stop a group of people from getting married and receiving the same rights and benefits as other groups of people then you are discriminating against that group.

    Also are you going to advocate against groups that attack the Westboro Baptist Church for no reason other then their religious beliefs?

    It would help to clarify it is legal discrimination. Practicing the act of discrimination itself is not always illegal. I don't go to Hooters or Mary Lou's coffee because of their exploitation of young women which means I am discriminating but I'm doing it with my own dead presidents. That is consumer freedom.

    Disagreeing, no. But refusing to dine somewhere because of their religion is discrimination.

    For instance. If I were to refuse to go to a restaurant because the owners were Muslim I would be discriminating against that restaurant. If I were to refuse to eat a restaurant run by a gay man because he was gay I would be discriminating. If I were to refuse to eat at a restaurant because it was run by a black woman I would be discriminating. This idea that just because its discrimination against a Christian is ok just because he is Christian is disgusting and bigoted. Has nothing to do with the tolerance these hypocrites pretend they want.

    I am not talking about legally. Legally I can do a lot of things doesnt mean they are right.

    chick-fil-a doesn't serve chicken; it serves GOPerfeed. Most conservatives can't afford real chicken, even with the unemployment checks Obama gave them.

    it is his support of bigotry, NOT his practice of Christianity, that is causing the boycott

    His beliefs on marriage are founded in his religion. You dont get to pick and choose what aspects of a religion a person believes. They get to make that choice themselves.

    No it isnt. Not in the way you are portraying it anyways. You said the gay community wants to force people to discriminate against religion and suppress the right to free speech. No one is doing that and I dont understand how you came up with that.

    but you keep trying to conflate his practice of Christianity with his support of bigotry
    they are not the same
    for example, there are many, MANY Christians who support same sex marriage
