    Let me ask you this. Do you think it is right or wrong of me to refuse to eat at a diner because it is run by muslims? Not legally.
    Are they sending money to anti gay marriage groups?

    What they do with their money is not my concern. Are anti gay marriage groups the only groups out there? Do you have any idea what the ceo's and share holders of any company you shop with do with their money? Should employers start hiring and firing based on what political groups you donate too? Schools? Where exactly do you want to draw that line?

    And as I keep telling you this boycott has nothing to do with him being a Christian and everything to do with him trying to legally discriminate against gays. I have no problem discriminating against people (in the non legal sense) who discriminate (in the legal sense) against others. Just like how I discriminate against racists (in the non legal sense) because they support the idea of discriminating against someone (in the legal sense) because of their race.

    And to answer your question it depends. Is their religion the only reason you are discriminating against them or are they donating money to hate groups and publicly declaring they dont support equal rights for a group of people?

    Edit: Just saw that you answered my question

    I dont understand the YES YOU DO part of your post. Are you saying other people have a right to pick and choose what aspects of a religion another person beleives?

    When it comes to C-F-A I do know where the President is sending money. And I ain't going to help him out.

    thank you for the edit.

    It is his Christian belief. That belief is a religious belief.

    Their religion.

    What I am saying is you choose your religion, and therefore you choose to believe that god is so petty he does not want a group of people to have the same rights as another group. You are responsible for what you believe, just as I am responsible for what I believe. I don't try and blame my beliefs on others. It is called personal responsibility.

    answer the rest too. Because I can assure you these groups that you hate because of their religious beliefs get their money from far more companies than chick fil a.

    I thought we wernt talking about rights. We are talking about discrimination right? After all no one is infringing on the CEO of CFAs rights.
