    then why are there other boycotts and protests of christian businesses, orgainizations, np orgs, centers, churches and events?

    Anyone on either side of the argument have a problem with that?
    I think we all agree that everyone is within their rights. People seem to have a problem with me telling them it is not right to boycott a business because of the owners religious beliefs, which is what i am arguing.

    I actually agree. Businesses should be boycotted because of the ACTIONS TAKEN based upon those beliefs (like funding harmful organizations and actions).

    If an owner subscribes to outrageous beliefs, yet manages somehow to not act upon them, then we'd likely never find out about those quiet beliefs, leaving me no basis for objection.
    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.

    It is not because of his personal religious beliefs. It is not because of his personal donations to groups. It is because of donations in the COMPANY name to organizations that actively lobby to deny equal rights for a segment of society.

    Maybe the president of Chic-fil-a doesn't think they are hate groups. What constitutes a hate group these days, anyone who doesn't agree with you? It's real simple, don't be a patron.

    People have the right to protest and boycott. I'm sure each case has different specifics.

    You realize that Christians protest and boycott places too, right? Planned Parenthood, adult book stores, gentlemen's clubs, and since you are so fond of the one Christian equals all Christians philosphy, soldiers' funerals.

    No, you are arguing that oppressing other people falls under religious beliefs.
