    No one is singling out Christians . The story just so happens to be a guy who claims to be Christian.

    I know many Christians, and even Muslims, that do not believe marriage is ONLY between a man and a woman. So I am not against this person because they are Christian.

    Also, this CEO borught the company into this by speaking for the comapny.

    Show me those Muslim owners that grand stand and go out of their way to say Marriage is between a man and a woman and speak for the company. Those are the people I will boycott.

    Tell me, why was it important for this owner to go out of their way and announce, as CEO of Chik-Fil-A, that marriage is between a man and a woman.

    Remember, it was the CEO that brought the company into this.

    The vast majority of Muslims. And a lot of the time they are far more strict than Christians who as a whole are very relaxed in their beliefs. Your logic here is flawed. Why won't you at least apply this universally? If you are going to boycott Chick Fil A it would make sense that you boycott business run by Muslims, and Jewish people too. Pretty much any person who is religious.

    Do you know who James Kirkman is? He is Christian, he has donated money to various Christian organizations that are anti ssm. He is the head of a large company. Do you think he should be boycotted too?

    Also he didnt go oout of his way, he was asked in an interview. After re-reading this you seem ok with people who oppose ssm and people who fund it programs that are working against it, people who advocate against. But you draw the line when they admit in a radio interview? Or only when the media blows it out of proportion? Help me to understand this one.

    Then why arent the pro ssm people boycotting businesses of other religions that oppose ssm? why arent they protesting outside mosques? In fact many of the same people who support ssm seem to be the same people pushing tolerance for muslims and pushing to help them get a larger presence in communities. These same people are helping and advocating for more mosques in our country. Tell me, for a religion that does not agree with homosexual behavior and strongly and in some cases violently opposes homosexuality why advocate so strongly for muslims? Why is their religion more tolerable than Christianity?

    When those owners speak for their companies about marriage, let me know. This CEO went out of their way to make this announcment in name of their company.

    If he has donated in the name of the company to those organizations, sure.

    They went out of their way agianst SSM. Ever heard of "no comment" or "I can't speak for the whole company"?

    Wow that would be unheard of though right?

    Seems you have a problem with boycotting in general, why is that? Are you against people using their freedom of speech?
