    It makes sense. If everyone simply said what they were told, then they wouldn't look so fail.

    You would avoid them to eat somewhere that never gave charity to such orgs?

    that's ok....I support people making an informed decision on where their money is spent....even if they are polar opposite of me. I just personally think that it is the morally responsible thing to do. I hate spending my money on companies that turn out to be fundamentally opposed to things I believe in and vice versa. Knowledge is power and knowledge is a good thing.

    I would avoid Chic-Fil-A to eat somewhere that has supported the anti-gay rights organizations and/or that has not supported the pro-gay rights organizations.

    Assuming the comparable franchises have never given to anti-gay orgs, and that there are still those within the ChickFil organizations that carry such sentiment, why would you go somewhere that totally doesn't give a crap.

    Just out of curiosity, why do you oppose homosexuality? I mean, you do don't follow any religion. What is the reasoning for opposition?

    Because CkickFilA corporation has backed away from the stance, publicly. If I were a member of that organization I would be handing in my resignation after this announcement.

    Morality, which I believe superceeds Religion.

    But where does your morality come from? I mean, it has to come from somewhere. The religious use their book. And it's very rare when non religious people object homosexuality.

    Dancing fairies in the woods near your house supercede reality; so, priorities are hardly relevant to the argument.

    I believe in a concept which I refer to as Universal Morality. Its basis is the common, core components of the successful per-20th century societies, which I believe form an almost instinctive level of Morality which we have not forgotten but chosen to ignore in the last century.
