    Actually I think people seem to have a problem with you telling them they're bigots for boycotting a business due to the owners religious beliefs....the owners political views....or the owners support for groups and the religious/political beliefs of those groups.

    I don't think people are having a problem that you're saying it's not right to boycott it. I think they have an issue with you labeling a desire to boycott as being a bigot.

    No it hasn't and it has in fact been proven. The company stands by and supports other organizations actively fighting against SSM.

    I'll go a step further and add that his retarded rhetoric of SSM "inviting God's Judgement on our nation" goes beyond a personal belief and advocating for imposing his personal belief on the whole nation.

    yes i do. and when christians protest a group based on that groups religion it is no more right. if you are going to try to defend the actions of the bigots discriminating against christians by pointing out that christians do it too you are wasting your time. two wrongs dont make a right now matter how biased you are.

    Not all Christians oppose SSM. You have been told this repeatedly.

    See, that's funny...I specifically mention businesses and you just side step that and blather on about churches, which I didn't say a single thing about.

    Odd...could that be because you can't show me a business where a muslim president of it said things publicly similar to what the Chick-Fil-A president stated?

    I'm one of those that thinks it's rather stupid to boycott it, but I understand it and have no problem with people who want to do it. And I'm also someone that thinks a lot of people are amazingly unprincipled and simply spurred by the cause du jour of the moment and are hollow in their applicatoin of principle. But I don't think that's evidence of them being bigots...perhaps ignorant to the rights violations being undertaken by numerous companies they do business with, but not actively bigoted.

    Where? He was speaking for the company. He donated company money.
    Show me where he only made donations of his own personal money.

    Anyone on either side of the argument have a problem with that?
    Nope. The only issue that seems to even still exist in this debate is arguing with muciti on whether or not people are bigoted for boycotting Chick-Fil-A, and earlier with you on whether or not Cathy's actions were bigotted in nature.

    There is nothing wrong with people expressing that they believe another group's beliefs are wrong.
