    Bullsh*t. Discussions of this subject are rife with pro-SSM people leveling the term of "bigot".
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Yeah, so? No one here is saying she can't. Just that it's meaningless for her to do so. As I stated, her father's company doesn't own the Muppets anymore, haven't for a decade. They don't license Chik anything - Disney owns the Muppets and their marketing outright.

    The issue specklebang that got the whole ball rolling on this subject are Chicago and Boston's decisions to deny business licenses to Chick-Fil-A based on the owners public comments espousing his opinion on SSM. Boycotting is pointless anyway, and anyway it's really beside the point. It's one thing to boycott, it's another to use the power of government to prevent someone from opening a business based on their religious beliefs.

    I'm pretty sure Disney will keep on licensing the Muppets to Chik.
    but we have found out that the henson company will no longer work for chik fil a

    She is free to do this. Although, I wonder how many people who thought it was stupid for some people to boycott Oreo think it is also stupid to boycott Chick Fil A People can boycott and do what they want.

    Anyone that frequents a Chick-Fil-A should have at least a guess that they may be religious as I'm sure they've gone "Hmm, I'd love some [insert chick-fil-a food] right now" only to drive by the resturant and go "Ah ****! I forgot it's Sunday" because they close every single sunday.

    In most stores there's usually a poster explaining why, due to the deeply held religious beliefs, they are closed on Sundays.
    K, but the owner is free to do so. Does Chick-Fil-A refuse service to gays? I don't care if the owner happens to be religious, it has no bearing on me.

    People can boycott whatever they like. If you don't approve of SSM and want to boycott businesses that support it, more power to ya. Good luck explaining to kids why they can't go to Disneyland/Disneyworld.

    Nope. My first job was at a Chick Fil A. We didn't ask someone their orientation nor did we refuse to sell food to obvious homosexuals. Heck, I've sold food to a cross dresser before when I worked there.

    Bigots are human. Calling a bigot a "bigot" isn't implying that God is going to have frogs rain down on us.
