    It is not my place to tell people whether their boycott is right or not. They have every right to boycott. I can say that in my opinion the reason is silly, or justified, but right or wrong is purely opinion. Boycotting is something that people have a right to do, and I am not going to even try to tell some one they cannot exercise their right.

    It's a pity that simple symbols and characters from childhood now have to be politicized.
    What an unmitigated crock. A classic "We believe our own BS"

    There is no difference between one party like CFA professing their politics and another responding in kind. None.

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

    Can't say I do know Stealy Dan, but I understand you comment.

    It may seem that way to you, but IMO, I still believe the Mayor of DC would ban them from doing business if he had the power to do so.

    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.
    The issue here is thta you are not tolerant of another persons beliefs. You would agree that it would be wrong to discriminate against someone because of their muslims beliefs. But okay for someone who has christian beliefs. Crazy how you think that. especially considering muslims and christians share beliefs about homosexuality.

    muslims teach that it is wrong, advocate and vote against ssm and all homosexual activities. (generally speaking). same with jewish people. bahai do not believe it is right. many hindus do not. these religions all teach and advocate that homosexuality is wrong. Why not boycott muslim, hindi, and jewish establishments? Why not protest muslims and their beliefs?

    Oy Vey how many times do people have to say this. They are free to have their beliefs when they attempt to get discrminatory beliefs (in this case gay marriage) codified into law people will work against them.

    i clearly asked would it be wrong to boycott a business because it was run by a muslim more than once. Each time I have been told it would be. Or the responders said they felt it would be. Yet they are advocating the same thing Mr. Cathy is. Many of them donate money to organizations that oppose and advocate against gay marriage. Almost all people (especially liberals) will tell you it is important to be tolerant of Muslims and their religions. It is important not to discriminate and it would be wrong to boycott a business of a muslim even though they would share that belief. For some reason many liberals seem to think it is ok to be bash Christians and Christianity. This probably wouldn't upset me so much if it weren't for the fact that it is discrimination based on his religion. And yet many of you dont apply it universally.. Only against Christian based faiths.

    You are free to believe that. I even defend your right to believe even though I think it is absolute poppy cock.
