    Can you point me to any comments you've made where you've called for the impeachment of President Obama for holding the same position?

    I haven't participated in any thread discussing Obama. And knowing that you are a hateful, homophobic, and racist stormfront exile I don't really care to entertain any of your perceived injustices that you have seen in our president's stint in presidency.

    The lgbt community is upset because the CEO donated 1000 dollars to a proposistion that was going to legally deny them the right to marry who they love, that's not an unfair premise to judge someone.
    At the time it was far from an unpopular position, one that was shared by a number of prominent politicians as other public figures. Even Obama held that position until he 'evolved', whatever that is supposed to mean.

    So now, it's perfectly acceptable to force a CEO to resign from the company he founded because he supported which has only recently become politically unpopular?

    Which previously unpopular political positions have you held over the course of your life? Should you be forced to resign your position because you've held those previous positions? Is this the new standard of compliance to political correctness? Are you sure you want to be supporting this? Both now and into the future?

    IOW, you don't want to explain your hypocrisy because you can't. No one can concoct reasoning to explain feelings-based tantrums.

    it MUST be remembered at the same time that the fanatic hatred against those that disagree with them is NEVER directed at...say...democrats that dare to believe homosexuality is wrong. Or pastors that happen to be...you know...black.

For the part of my argument you aren't getting is Marriage won't exist as a legal accepted form of relationship. Only Civil Unions will.
    yes i understand what you want perfectly and it changes nothing about the factual flaws of it.
    What you want will not be equal. You will be forcing people to give up thier rights, and then provide them with somethign that is a lesser, no thanks
    Im glad i could clear up your confusion

    It's more than an emotional buy issue. It's a performance and features decision, at least for my part, in that IE still doesn't work as fast a Firefox, and with the open ended add-in development environment with a rich set of additional features and capabilities that IE can't match. The market has produced a superior product to Microsoft's offerings.

    I've tried other OS's and still like MS, and much of their software, like the antivirus -MS Essentials but they've never got their browser or email right.

It's ridiculous that you think it should change things, that everyone should be like - "well it was so long ago let's just pretend it never happened." It did happen and it bit him in the ass 6 years later.
    So this is the liberal tolerance for dissenting positions and opinions that we've heard so much about?
