    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?
    You didnt answer my questions. If I am understanding you correctly you don't have a problem with the fact that he funds anti ssm organizations, or that he is anti ssm, your issue is that he said it?

    It seems YOU have a serious problem with the definition of boycott; a person may decide not to do businees with a firm or those that run their advertisements, but that is FAR different from the GOV'T denying equal protection of the law to that firm, based ONLY upon their political views. If this firm discriminated against someone or had a personnel policy to do so, then PERHAPS after repeated offenses then they could lose their business license, but to PREVENT them from opening with ZERO violations of any law is simply denying them free speech. Why did these SAME folks support Obama when he was for the definition of marriage as ONE man and ONE woman? How can these same folks NOT ban all who support Islam, a religion that would make homosexuality a CRIME that may be punished by death? Hmm...

    Perhaps we should start revoking the business licenses of all those who don't vocally support SSM. Or anyone who speaks out against the Democratic Party. Or those who are Muslim. This is a reminder that, "They will, eventually, come for you."

    My issue is with the fact he is speaking for the company on this and his comapny funds those organizations.

    Again, you'll have to show me where I have said it is ok for the government to abuse their power in this instance. I have CONSISTANTLY said I am all for individuals boycotting, NOT a person who is in a position of government abusing their power to stop this.

    No. HE funds those organizations with money he makes from being the head of the company. HE spoke as a person who happens to be the head of a company. At least I am pretty sure he makes donations in his own name. I am not quite sure how to check that.
