    Scientologists... never mind.
    I know exactly what i am talking about. and most religions believe in god.

    Yes. Do you believe it is morally right to picket the WBC compound. And as a side note I think you missed my post #536

    Beliefs and behavior are two different things. I haven't seen Chick fil A refusing to serve or hire gay people. Just as you can not force a person who believes in segregation that they are wrong, and just as you can not convince me that my sexuality is a sin, and just as you can not convince Dan Cathy that marriage rights should be extended to same sex couples, you can insist that their behavior and policy as a business are not discriminatory.

    Chick fil A has not been discriminatory in their behavior. They can hold whatever beliefs they choose. These are statements- not actions. And by the way, if a person feels that they do not wish to patronize Chick fil A for this reason, that is fine with me. But attacking the company for the personal beliefs and politics of their CEO IS wrong, IMO, especially when using terms like anti-gay (as if pro-DOMA and anti-gay are synonomous) and "spewing hatred." I know for a fact that Dan Cathy does not HATE gay people.

    Any CEO who claims to believe one thing and acts and/or operates his/her business in a manner that is inconsistent with that belief, even though he has a choice not to, is by definition, a hypocrite.

    The CEO of Chick-Fil-A cannot say he opposes gay marriage and then simultaneously be believed 100% that he opposes discriminating against gay couples in his facilities.

    A person's values are fundamentally reflected by his actions. And Dan Cathy's actions are clear: he has donated money to organizations that promote a gay-bashing agenda. Therefore, he's a bigot himself, plain and simple. So if it's true that his eating facilities don't discriminate against people due to sexual orientation, then he must be a hypocrite. But if he's not a hypocrite, then he must support such discrimination, in keeping with his true beliefs.

    One must keep in mind that it's difficult to tell whether Cathy would like such discrimination to take place in his facilities by just examining its official discrimination policy, which always has to comply with anti-discrimination laws.
