    And by that logic they should be boycotting any business run by a muslim, jew, or largely any religious group. Instead these same ssm advocates are fighing to help the muslim faith grow and open mosques that are going to help advocate against ssm. Talk about hypocrisy.

    Read it again, in the interview he clearly states that the COMPANY believes in those values and not in "Adam and Steve". Therefore, in the name of the comapny he funds these organizations.

    Jesus why are you against freedom of speech for people wanting to boycott this company?

    If the presidents, CEO, and owners of those places SPEAK FOR THE COMPANY like Chik-Fil-A has, then yes.

    Show me where those people have like Chik-Fil-A.

    Again so your issue is not with the fact that the oppose ssm, contribute money to ssm, advocate or preach against it, or anything else. It just when they answer a question about it when asked? Think about that logic. By your line of thought is person A donated 15 million dollars in company profits to directly stopping ssm, and person B donated none but said in an interview that he was for marriage between a man and woman you are more upset by B.

    It's clear you and I are not going to agree on this, so I will just conclude that because they are SPEAKING FOR THE COMPANY and what values the COMPANY has, they are subject to boycott of said company if someone does not like those values.

    In the interview they weren't speaking as an individual, they were speaking for the company. Get it?

    Denying a business license is NOT a public boycott.

    I agree with this. But boycotting by the general public and discrimination by government officials are two very different animals.

    Show me where the company has ever discriminated against homosexuals. I'll wait here while you look into that.

    Are you having trouble reading my comments?

    I never claimed denying a business license WAS a public boycott. I even stated that it was wrong.

    What I agree with is individuals boycotting the company.

    I never said it has. However, they as a company speak against SSM. As a company, they will be boycotted by people that strongly disagree with that message.

    Tell me, if a CEO said "The company ABC does not believe in interracial marriage", would you then not expect people to boycott said company?
