The same 'christians' who line up to howl over the Quackers lead attacks against some VERY popular shows and for some very odd reasons. They are letting principles interfere with making money.
Remember the outrage over 'Happy Feet'? If the Religious Right had their way that money maker would never have seen the light of day.
Photographers who refuse to make money doing same sex weddings, Bakers refusing to serve same sex customers, florists who refuse to serve their long standing gay customers because the customer is getting married to his male partner...
So spare us the tripe that liberals let their ideology get in the way of sound business practices... pot meet kettle.
