    I know this, however, muciti is has taken the stance that people (as indidivuals) shouldn't boycott the company. Not that they can't, but that they shouldn't.

    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?
    Again many companies in this country are headed by people with religious values oppose and fund groups who oppose ssm the exact same as Mr. Cathy. The only real difference here is you were told by the leftist media this one was exceptionally bad and got in line. When in reality it is no different. If you were so adament about this you would not support any business that was run by a muslim, christian, catholic, jew, or bahai and many others. But of course some religions are excempt in the eyes of liberals. Its only ok to attack christians. This attack on Christians for their beliefs is my problem.

    Sorry, but the reality is that this CEO spoke FOR THE COMPANY. They didn't speak as an individual, they spoke FOR THE COMPANY.

    If you can't see the difference between someone speaking as an individual and speaking for the company, I can't help you.

    From post 737 from the snopes link I posted:

    Chick-fil-A is "very much supporting of the family," according to Dan Cathy, president of the popular fast food chain. That is, "the biblical definition of the family unit," he said.

    And that doesn't include Adam and Steve,
    suggests Cathy, whose father S. Truett Cathy founded the Atlanta-based company.
    Like I said, he is speaking for the company AGAINST SSM so people are in their very right to boycott the company.

    This is what all the fuss is about:

    Some have opposed the company's support of the traditional family. "Well, guilty as charged," said Cathy when asked about the company's position.

    "We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.

    "We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy emphasized.

    "We intend to stay the course," he said. "We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."
    As to the bolded statement? Apparently notsomuch.

    "The people" can boycott against any damned thing they choose. You're arguing a point no one is arguing.

    Like I said before muciti was arguing that people shouldn't boycott them. My posts have mostly been replies to muciti's statements and questions.

    No your problem is his religion and the media telling you its a problem otherwise you would be more consistent.
