    Exactly. Boycotting may be stupid in my opinion but it certainly isnt discriminating against anyone in the legal sense.

    You should go shopping with your mom more often. If you've learned how to cook, chicken is dirt cheap when you buy them whole.

    Besides, conservatives eat steak.

    No its because they dont like his views on SSM and homosexuality. Big difference.

    Would it be discrimination to refuse to shop at a store because the owner was black? Do you have a right to do so if you chose so?

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.
    After seeing Furiounovas post I should have specified that I meant legal discrimination for that post.

    However no one is boycotting him for being Christian. They are boycotting him for his views on SSM and homosexuality.

    Edit: I also just realized that you never responded about my point on the WBC? Are you going to condone groups that attack the WBC for their religious beliefs?

    they are not the same
    for example, there are many, MANY Christians who support same sex marriage
    There are many many who dont too. Each person has the right to their own beliefs. I am a catholic and I have always supported gay marriage and most of the others in my congregation do not. I may actually be the only one in my congregation who makes a yearly donation to GLAAD or to cospride. My belief has absolutely nothing to do with them. Just because I am catholic and dont believe it doesnt mean that it isnt a catholic belief.

    This mans belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman is his belief and it is based on his religion. To refuse to use his services because of his belief is bigoted no matter how you attempt to justify it.

    You discriminate several times everyday. Why is it suddenly an issue?

    (hint: in every choice free in nature we exercise discrimination. It is one of the processes for decisions.)

    There is a difference between something being illegal and something being wrong.

    I fail to see what is wrong (morally) with boycotting CFA.
