    I believe the policy there is DADT, although if management sees two women/men holding hands, they may be prohibited from ordering certain items.

    Who is blaming their beliefs on others? Also for you to call another persons beliefs petty is bigoted. Tolerance and acceptance can help solve a lot of problems. Hate spewed rhetoric like that is why the two sides of this argument make no headway.

    No it isn't. Whether it is the correct decision largely depends on what those religious beliefs are.

    I did not call the beliefs petty, I called the god petty. Big difference.

    Picking and choosing which beliefs of a persons you want to be tolerant of is pretty much what discrimination is. Just like gays and lesbians dont like to be discriminated against neither do Christians or anyone else. Many people need to learn to tolerate and accept those different from them or stop demanding it for themselves. It is hypocritical to say its wrong to discriminate against me but its ok for me to discriminate against you.

    God is the primary belief of most religious people.

    The fact that its a Christian belief is irrelevant. If he was an atheist it would still be wrong to try and legally discriminate against homosexuals.

    And if the only reason you have to boycott someones place of business then its wrong. However as I have said people arnt boycotting CFA over Christianity they are boycotting CFA over the fact that their CEO supports legally discriminating againts homosexuals and gives money to anti gay groups.
