    The whole picture is that this CEO said something that people did not like, and in return, they are boycotting said business. That is free speech at it's very core. Chik-Fil-A CEO has the freedom of speech to say that marriage should be between a man and a woman, and the people have the freedom of speech to boycott.

    You call it closed mindedness on the part of the boycotters and I call it closed mindedness on the part of the CEO.

    I agree with you on part of that. He is closed minded as well. But two wrongs dont make a right. Chick fil a is being boycotted because of the owners religious belief and that is wrong.

    Yes I read my own quote. I said "if" he could prohibit this business owner from doing buinsess in DC, IMO, I think he would.

    Ok, so, you think he would if he could(even though there is no evidence of it), so even though he hasn't, you still condemn him as if he had, even though he can't and has given no evidence he would.

    Ever hear of an old Stealy Dan album called Pretzel Logic? Your post reminded me of it.

    And that's where we differ. I don't see boycotting as a wrong. I see it as a reaction to a person making an unpopular statement as CEO of a company.

    If a CEO of another company came out and said I don't think interracial marriage should be allowed, I would react the same way.

    The simple fact is this CEO decided to grand stand with their close mindedness remark and they are being boycotted because of that remark.

    Do you think that it would be right for a person to boycott a business because the owner was muslim, black, or gay?

    I would say people have the right to do so. These are bull**** reasons to do it, but it is "strictly" legal to do it.

    Okay, hopefully I can explain this to your satisfaction. When you take the legality of things out of the way, right and wrong are morally subjective and subject to different people’s view and/or society norms.

    In today’s society, for the most part, boycotting a business because the owner is gay, Muslim, or black would be considered negative. In today’s society there is a good part of the population that believes being against same sex marriage is wrong. Hence, why Chik-Fil-A isn’t going out of business. The boycott may or may not lose them business in the long wrong, only time will tell.

    Now, to answer your direct question, I do think boycotting a business because they are against SSM is okay and right in my opinion while I think boycotting a business because the owner is black, Muslim, or gay is wrong.

    These are due to my beliefs and morality. My morals and beliefs are different than yours so therefore my actions to certain things will be different. Again, when you take the legality out of it, all you have are morals and beliefs which are subjective at best.
