    No, it isn't. Again I have stated what my problem is, he is speaking for the company on values I don't agree with. You don't understand that and that isn't my problem. I have provided the statements and included the links that you choose to ignore. The problem isn't mine the problem is yours.

    I, and my family, will continue to boycott them. Deal with it.

    from the original piece that started Chick-fil-A's problems on the site of the Biblical Recorder
    Some have opposed the company’s support of the traditional family. “Well, guilty as charged,” said Cathy when asked about this opposition.

    “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.
    Another interesting statement by Dan T. Cathy was in regards to the college football game once known as the Peach Bowl, now called the Chick-fil-A Bowl
    15 years ago the Chick-fil-A organization got involved. It was rebranded as the Chick-fil-A Bowl and has been incredibly successful, second only to the BCS championship.

    “We are the only bowl that has an invocation. It’s in our agreement that if Chick-fil-A is associated in this, there’s going to be an invocation.
    Also, we don’t have our bowl on Sunday, either,” Cathy pointed out.
    Aren't the dominionists nice people? Never mind that a substantial number of the attendees might not be Christian and the possibility of non-xian players on either team, they will have to put up with just more religious ceremony that they may not like just so they can watch or play in a sports event.

    Another fine example of those with the wealth imposing their personal values on the rest of us.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    Once again, completely nonresponsive.

    Do you acknowledge the FACT (not opinion, not feeling, not impression) that no one is telling (with or without force of law) the CFA owner to whom or what he can (MAY, actually) or can't (MAY NOT) donate money?

    YES

    or

    NO
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.

    Then you and your family are bigots. Deal with it. But you have the right to be intolerant.

    Therefore it is your opinion that opposing bigotry makes one a bigot? Right, got it now, we are operating in opposite world with rules written by Calvin and Hobbes

    I tend to agree with that assessment. How can one expect tolerance of alternate views if one isn't tolerant themselves? It's hypocritical to the max.

    big·ot   [big-uht]
    noun
    a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.
    ChickFilA, on the other hand, doesn't fit that definition at all.

    Insults are the last desperation of someone that has lost the debate. Enjoy, I'm done debating this with you as you can only insult when I have patiently explained my reasons to you without using insults.

    Where did this CEO express bigotry? Look up the definition -- or read it in my above post. The CEO talked about what they believed and went on to say that his company treated every one of its customers with dignity and respect. That is not bigotry. That is religious dogma.

    Riiiiiiight, so let me get this straight. People that are for SSM are using their free-speech rights by boycotting Chik-fil-A and are bigots. Yet, chik-fil-A who holds the stance against SSM and donates as a company to organizations that actively fight SSM are not intolerant.

    Well feel free to believe that, it doesn't change my stance any yet it does show how you resort to insults.

    Are you saying religious dogma cannot be bigotry? It was held in many churches that interracial marriage should not be allowed. That is a stance that is considered bigoted today.
