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.
    If you patronize his business you are supplying the money he uses to fund the groups who fight against SSM. So basically, your donations to GLAAD are cancelled by the money given to chik.

    It is wrong to discriminate against a person for their religious beliefs.

    Wow. So why did you discriminate against all the other stores? Why are you practicing discrimination?

    No they arent. Although if I see GLADD or cospride in any way endorsing this type of hate against christians I will be finding new organizations to support in February (when we make our donations)

    Explain how i am discriminating and on what grounds i am discriminating. I can assure you my choice in grocery stores has nothing to do with the owners or employees race, religion, sexual orientation, age, sex or creed.

    )People are basing their decision whether or not to eat as his diner on this mans religious beliefs and nothing more. I am ok with people not eating there. I could care less. Its the reason they are eating there that I find disgusting.

    There needs to be a distinction between mere beliefs and actions based on those beliefs. Let's say someone says they don't believe African Americans are on the same level with Caucasians but they take no discriminatory action against that group in any way. I would use that business because there is no actual discrimination against African Americans. Now let's say that same business gives sub level service based on that belief.

    My refusing to fund their bigotry is not discrimination. It is refusing to fund discrimination.
